About this home

A tiney home nursery with a garden, lots of resources and a separate sleep room. In a prime location in the centre of West Kirby next to transport links, shops, parks, beaches, the library and other amenities. Your child can look forward to sharing stories, singing, dancing, baking, arts and crafts, messy activities, using the outside play kitchen, lots of adventures in the local area, and so much more! My core hours are 8am to 6pm and I offer school collections.

About our tiney childminder

With 26 years of Early Years classroom experience as a qualified teacher, it is second nature for me to spark, and extend, the children’s interests, imagination and learning through play. The children in my care will receive the individual support and attention they need to flourish and we will have an incredible amount of fun as we learn together in the most enabling environment.

Unique highlights

What my family say…

I asked my niece and nephews “What is Aunty Carrie good at that she can do with the children?” Their replies were… “Aunty Carrie manages to make even the dullest things fun, she always has an interesting activity to do inside when we aren’t outside exploring, and has always allowed me to explore my creativity whilst also teaching me boundaries, respect, and how to interact and communicate with other people.” - Age 15 “Aunty Carrie is good at organising plans and events or days out that are full of fun, and being outdoors mainly. It is always good because you never know exactly what kind of adventure you are going to have.” - Age 14 “Beach” - Age 13 “You are good at turning rainy days into really fun days.” - Age 11 “Taking them for walks, cooking pizza wraps and playing with the blocks with them.” - Age 8


I have always loved reading stories with children and can’t imagine a day going by without some time being spent curled up sharing a great book! There is a huge story book collection here, that rivals a library, so we’ll have lots of fun exploring and discovering new books. We will be having regular visits to the local library too of course!

The Great Outdoors!

I have always loved being outside with the children teaching, and learning together, about the environment. We will be planting our own flowers and vegetables and observing environmental changes throughout the seasons. Although I have a garden, I am a stone’s throw away from 4 great parks, Grange and Caldy hill, and of course the beach. Ashton park has swings and climbing frames, and there are vast spaces to race, chase, explore and have quiet picnics. We are going to make some fantastic memories, and have lots of adventures, all around West Kirby.
