About this home

Welcome to my tiney Home Nursery . I live in Borehamwood - Hertfordshire and we are surrounded by beautiful green areas and parks. My favourite hobby is art and I strongly believe in one of the Pablo Picasso quotes, “ Every child is an artist", with a unique talent to be unveiled though love, care and support. Our tiney Home Nursery is close to local schools, a bus stop and train station! We have a lovely separate playroom and a garden. Opening hours are 7:30a.m. to 6:00p.m. Monday to Friday.

About our tiney childminder

I have set up Little Steps to be inclusive and welcoming for all families. A place where families and children can feel safe, valued, cared for and loved. A place where children will have a wonderful time and learn new skills at the same time that will be needed for the next step. I provide home cooked meals but I am open to work in partnership with families regarding introducing new foods and avoiding allergens. As a mother of 3 Children with lactose intolerance I understand that.

What others are saying about this home...


Elsa is a fantastic childminder. I could not feel happier leaving my children in her care. She provides a loving, fun environment, freshly cooked food, and a spotlessly clean setting. I get daily updates on what they're up to and always so much thought and effort involved in activities focused on EYFS - my children are thriving. A fantastic playroom and garden full of toys/activities. The kindest person who goes above and beyond to help care for little ones.


Most caring person ever! I always have a peace of mind when I am dropping my daughter to Little Steps. Elsa is the most sweetest, caring, loving person I have ever met. I know my child is in safe hands with her, she is sending updates what is my child up to. She is always providing healthy snacks, planning different fun activities daily for her. Her house is spot less. Elsa is so helpful I can not thank her enough for her hard work. I am so glad I have chosen Elsa to look after my little one I would 100% choose her again.


My daughter has been attending Little Steps_Tiney home nursery since March. She has settled in well and enjoys the nursery. Elsa and Flavio are friendly, welcoming and enthusiastic. There’s daily activities and these are well planned and engaging. The environment is a safe and caring one. They provide regular feedback throughout the day and parent feedback is encouraged. As a result I feel involved in my daughter’s learning. They are supportive and attentive to my daughter’s needs. The meals provided are nutritious and healthy. I feel like this nursery is a home away from home for my daughter. I feel safe in the knowledge that my daughter is being well cared for.


We extend our heartfelt gratitude to you and your esteemed daycare for the unwavering dedication and exceptional care you consistently provide for our family. We are exceedingly delighted with the nurturing environment you create for Luna and the other children. Witnessing our daughter's inquisitiveness, confidence, and overall happiness, we genuinely attribute a significant portion of her growth and development to your invaluable contributions. Your commitment to surpassing ordinary expectations by offering enriching educational experiences that foster both social and academic growth is truly commendable. We particularly cherish the "Weekly special topics" that provide unique learning opportunities. In summary, we wholeheartedly express our contentment and wish to emphasize that we would not alter a single aspect. Our fondness for Elsa and the Little Steps family runs deep, and we truly feel like an integral part of this cherished community.


We choose Elsa in October when we move to borehamwood. We didn’t know anyone and the experience with an other childminder was not really good. We done 3 days of induction and we were really happy with her way of operate so we decide to start this path with her. We had some hard time as my daughter was in the terrible two but Elsa manage the situation and she was able to settle her down without anymore issue. Now my daughter is happy to go and spent time with them. She help us to start the nappy transition as well and is going quite good. I’m glad I choose her!


My husband I we are very happy and pleased about the overall safety and health of our son in your Tiney setting. He is always so happy and feels comfortable around both you and his peers. He is fed well and learns so much. It is a wonderful family friendly environment, and we couldn't have asked for any better. Thank you for everything you do for him.
