Franklin's tiney home nursery

My name is Franklin and I live with my 14 year old son, John, who attends a local school.

My setting is in the centre of Clerkenwell in Islington and we are not far from Angel Station, Farringdon Station, and Holborn and Kings Cross Station.

Clerkenwell is a very beautiful place surrounded by green parks. Islington Museum is on the ground floor of my building, along with a lovely library.

About my home

I aim to provide a child-centred care and recognise that every child is individual and unique. Children receive plenty of 1:1 focus in my small, homely setting to ensure they achieve their learning and development goals.

At my nursery I provide a freshly cooked buffet breakfast and dinner, all included in the fees. A variety of dishes, fresh vegetables and fruits. I offer a pick up and drop off service to Hugh Middleton Primary School, Clerkenwell Parochial Primary School, and St. Peter’s Primary School.

Life at a tiney home nursery

tiney family pack

Want a flavour of what you can expect when you sign up with one of our tiney childminders? Have a look through our family pack, which should answer your big questions about all things tiney, from our education philosophy to how we make money - and lots more besides.

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.

I’m next to City University and near the Peel Centre.

London's landmarks are on my doorstep for children to explore. I'm a three minute walk to Sadlers Wells Theatre, close to St Paul's Cathedral and Black Friar's Bridge.
