About this home

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 our tiney childminder

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.

In this neighbourhood

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.

What others are saying about this home...

Meghan Peatey - Deputy Head Teacher @ West Wimbledon Primary

I know Claire in both a professional and a personal capacity. Throughout the time I worked with her, she always held the children at the heart of what she did. Claire took the time to get to know each child as an individual and worked hard to personalise their learning for them. She is patient, hardworking and one of the most caring people I know. As a friend,  I can only reiterate the qualities that she shows. But on top of that, I’ve seen how creative she is at home with play and learning and activities always have learning through play at the core. Both my children adore her and I wouldn’t hesitate to have her look after them - knowing that she’d be like their second mum.

Siobhan

Our daughter absolutely loved being at Claire's home nursery. Claire has a lovely home full of toys and a huge garden to play in. Given Claire previous experience working in a school, the setting was professional and educational as well as fun! Our daughter also loved the trips Claire arranged to the local library, parks and visits to see the horses. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Claire to anyone. Even though we've now moved away, our daughter still talks about "going to nursery" on a daily basis.

Eli

Claire is just amazing I started to send my little one to Claire when he was just over 1 year old. He settled straight away and I could tell he truly enjoyed and loved being at Claire's. She has such a huge, tidy and beautiful garden with lots of outdoor toys which made my boy so happy. She took him to different places such as the library, playground and park which I really appreciate. When my boy refused to eat pasta, she cooked some sticky rice for him! It's sad to say good-bye to Claire because we are moving abroad.

Lindsay

Claire is a real Superstar! We can't thank her enough for the extremely caring and nurturing home environment she has provided for our 2 year old son. From her welcoming and beautiful home and garden to the amazing outings and experiences she had taken him on. Claire is beyond patient and caring and he absolutely loves his time with her and her family and often doesn't want to leave. Our son has really thrived under Claire's care and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect fit. She will be missed and I highly recommend her.
