Claire's tiney home nursery

I’ve created a tiney home that is an emporium of curiosity, creativity, adventure, and discovery. I use my knowledge and experience to plan and provide children with activities and experiences to help them flourish. My tiney home is a vibrant and welcoming space for kids to learn and laugh. A friendly, inviting place which I’m incredibly proud of and can’t wait to welcome your child to.

About my home

I’ve dedicated my entire adult working life to childcare. I’ve been a babysitter, a deputy manager of a nursery and a teaching assistant – I’ve done it all. But the biggest childcare challenge (with the biggest reward) of all has to be being a parent and I’m lucky enough to be the mum of three wonderful adventurous kids. I love being around children, I know how vital these first few years are for them. I love to see children grow, be curious, discover, learn, laugh, play and develop.

Unique highlights

Let's get outside

For me, the best place to do that learning and discovering is outside. I love to explore and travel and encourage my children to do the same, so we’ll be spending a lot of our time in the great outdoors, letting our imagination run wild, getting up close with wildlife and making the most of nature.

Let's explore the garden

We are very lucky to have a large secure garden – which includes a small orchard, veggie patch and climbing equipment. It’s a truly magnificent place to explore and play in – and we usually will be, come rain or shine. I’m also positioned between two local parks – both within walking distance.

Let's get personal

I've worked in the childcare sector for over 20 years- and with it comes a lot of experience. I know all kids are different, from very fussy eaters to energetic duracell bunnies. In my tiney home I will focus on creating an environment your child can flourish and excel in by pursuing their personal interests and curiosities. And with my small number ratio in my home I can promise dedicated bespoke care and attention.

Let's learn and have fun in the playroom

Children can make the most of a dedicated learn and playroom inside my home. This area will be filled with fun resources, set-out activities, and open-ended play. The next door dining room has a comfy sofa and chill space for children to relax after all that playing!

Let's get creative

In my home there is never a shortfall of crafty bits with colorful card, glittery sequins and glue sticks galore. I pride myself in coming up with new ideas for the kids to do, which is always creative, messy and fun – usually with the help of a tuff tray.

Let's have an adventure

Everyday is a new adventure, from shopping at the local green grocer's to feeding the birds at the Hamptons nature reserve just down the road. And I also have membership to the National Trust, Kew gardens, Painshill Park and Historic England to name a few, so there are endless adventures to be had.

Sharing books is at the heart of all tiney home nurseries – it’s fantastic for children’s imaginations, for building vocabulary, for speaking and listening, for personal, social and emotional development, and so much more. Through our partnerships with Walker Books and the National Literacy Trust, our childminders run creative activities around a wonderfully diverse range of books.

My home is based in New Malden, with Motspur Park train station just a few minutes’ walk away.

Nestled nicely between two local parks, my home is a spacious and comfortable place – with a dedicated playroom for the little ones to have hours of fun. While a secure large garden will let them run wild and experience the wonders of nature with our veggie patch. There are plenty of local activities and clubs for kids to enjoy, including song and dance at the local library – all these will be included in my set rate.
