About our tiney childminder

I set up my tiney home to provide high quality care in a safe, supportive and nurturing environment. I provide meals and snacks if required. I have over 20 years of experience working in a variety of childcare settings, including schools, nurseries, as a nanny, and even building an education programme in an art gallery. I have a level 3 childcare qualification, first aid, safeguarding, food hygine, nutrition as well as a degree in literature and art history.
