About this home

A tiney home from home by the sea with with a lovely playroom and garden for children to explore and learn in. As a former Early Years teacher, with 20+ years experience, I have a fully embedded knowledge of Early Years Foundation stage. Child centred learning through play is central to my ethos. We are in a lovely area a short walk from the beach and in easy reach of both Walton on the Naze and Frinton on Sea. We are 5 minutes from our local school.

About our tiney childminder

I believe in the power of play and my tiney home reflects this, with a variety of open ended resources to facilitate the children’s choices. We have lots of sensory and imaginative play, with small world and construction for our world builders. We use stories and art for inspiration and know the value of calm, quiet time to balance. We have lots of places to visit, from the beach to the park and our local shop. But most of all, I want all children in our home to feel valued and cared for.

Unique highlights

Beach walks

I plan to visit the beach in every season so that the children can see any changes and compare.

Qualified Early Years Teacher

I taught in the Early Years for many years and have taught all aspects of the curriculum, from Literacy, Phonics and Maths to Understanding the World, with a focus on real experiences and learning through play.


I was the ICT Coordinator at my last school and have lots of knowledge of enriching resources to link with the children’s learning, from apps to practical activities.

What others are saying about this home...

Lisa Besemer

I had the privilege of working with Clare for a good few years, and in my opinion, she was definitely one of the best, if not the best, teacher . She knew every child as an individual and catered for all their needs. She was loved by all the children and staff, an asset to the school. She was always happy, and nothing was ever too much.

Rebecca Hempstock

After meeting Clare, you will see that she is one of the most kind, caring, calm and creative people your child will ever have to privilege of being cared for by. Having known Clare professionally for over 10 years , I see how she treats each child as an individual, planning for and meeting their needs through the most wonderful and engaging activities. Nothing is ever too much trouble for Clare. My daughter and I love her and so will you. Thank you Clare.
