About my home

I've set up my tiney home to be inclusive and welcoming for all families. I provide home cooked meals as well as a safe and stimulating environment for the children to share and enjoy experiences with. I have great outdoor space with toys and resources for children of all ages and stages of development. I am a mother of 5 children, all young adults now. They have given me 4 granschildren aged between 3 to 13 years old, whom I adore. I have over 20 years of Child care experience with basic Makoton training. I was previously a Foster parent

30 years of Child Care experiences

Passionate about SEND

Enjoy working with Children of all ages and stages of development, I have a passion and drive and energy to provide the enabling and stimulating environment to all children in my care.

Love the local area of Gravesend

I love the outdoors, I feel children need to have the opportunity to explore and enjoy the environment by being outside. We have beautiful Shorne Woods Country Park, Jeskyns Park, 3 local community centres, children's play areas, swimming, libraries and many other activities for children to take part in nearby.

tiney book club

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.
