About our tiney childminder

I run my tiney home from a bright and welcoming flat in a new block with a safe roof garden. I provide different age-appropriate activities for the children to ensure that they cover the different developmental areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage, whilst learning through play. I provide healthy, fresh and nutritious meals. Children have their own new sleeping mats. We go on daily outings to parks, the library, or sometimes a farm, zoo, soft play area.
