About this home

A fun, home from home setting where children are encouraged to learn through playing and exploring.

We have access to lots of wonderful places to go on outings to locally. There are also lots of groups in the area, including stay and plays and messy play sessions. I believe messy and sensory play are important aspects of a child's learning.

I offer before and after school drop-offs and pick-ups.

About our tiney childminder

I started Little Squirrels because I want to create a safe, fun and loving environment where children can learn through play. I have struggled to find a safe place to send my son, as he has multiple food allergies, and I want to be able to provide this for others. I provide home cooked meals and have a great outdoor space. Our family has a lovely Cocker Spaniel. I believe that dogs are wonderful animals for children to be around and it is a great way to teach children all about animals.

Unique highlights


My son suffers with Milk and Egg allergies, so I am very aware of safe practices with food allergies.


I have a lovely garden with a dedicated play area with a mud kitchen, sand box, small netted trampoline and water tables. We also have a large grass area with a climbing frame, swings and slides.

Healthy Home Cooked Meals

I provide healthy, home cooked meals and snacks, included in the hourly rate. I can cater to allergies and dietary requirements.

In this neighbourhood

I am lucky to have 3 great parks locally, one of which puts on different events through the year. We also have a library within walking distance which holds weekly classes. We are very close to lots of farms, soft plays and Bird Land. Burbage Common and Woods is nearby which has a cafe and park, as well as the woods and fields.
