About our tiney childminder

I’m Ella and I’m mum to a 2 year old, step-mum to an 11 year old, auntie to 6 and the eldest of 7, so I’m very used to being around little people! I’m passionate about providing a safe and secure space for littles one to play, learn and explore. I have a background in teaching science so we spend a lot of time outdoors in nature, learning and discovering! I have a local allotment that the children help with and we enjoy growing, picking, cooking and eating home-grown fruit and vegetables.
