About this home

A safe and secure tiney home nursery with a warm, happy, fun-filled atmosphere in a cosy home from home setting. A nursery where the power of play is fully embraced in all its forms and motors children’s learning. In this child-centred, enabling environment, children can play, explore, ponder, investigate, invent and discover. Inspired by the curiosity approach and loose parts play, it is a place which encourages children to ask questions about the world around them and seek answers.

About our tiney childminder

Having had a much-loved career as a primary school teacher, I’m passionate about caring for children. With 11 years of experience, I pride myself on professionalism and letting my bubbly, friendly personality shine through. I’m a mummy to an 18 month old, who’s as excited as I am to welcome new friends into our home. With a creative background, I embrace all things messy and imaginative. I have a huge love of the great outdoors, nature and wildlife which is an important part of Happy Hedgehogs.
