About this home

My tiney home nursery provides a warm, loving, spacious & playful home from home environment where children can learn through play based activities & fun. I offer activities such as baking, messy play, outdoor play, music & crafts. I take the children out on daily basis to playgroups, libraries, parks, gardens & local attractions. I offer before & after school for West Byfleet Nursery, Infant & Junior school. My home is a short walk from local transport that offer links into London & Woking.

About our tiney childminder

My family is at the heart of everything I do! As a mum of 3 children aged 10, 5 & 2 I have experienced first hand what it’s like to juggle a working life with family life. This is why I set up ACE tiney home nursery. I’m extremely passionate about providing a loving, inspiring environment that focuses on each child & their individual needs. Children are encouraged to learn through play based activities, that allows them to be creative & independent whilst letting me offer my guidance & support.

Unique highlights

Inspiring Environment

My home is a warm, loving, spacious and playful environment that we share with our dog and cat. We have a large open plan home that allows me to see and be with the children at all times. I am truly passionate about free play and providing a mixture of activities and resources. I offer well balanced, healthy home cooked meals and love on occasions getting the children to help with the preparation and making of meals. Baking is also a big love of mine and has been passed down to me by my grandparents. I too want to pass this on to the next generation!

Mix of resources and approaches

At ACE tiney home nursery there is a real mixture of activities, resources & approaches. I believe that every child learns differently & should be encouraged to explore & express their unique interests. We have puzzles, animal toys, natural materials, real-world items, cars, construction blocks, arts & crafts, a play kitchen, ride on cars diggers & scooters, imaginative tuff trays, all sorts of mark-making opportunities, gardening, mud play, messy play & so much more. Learning about different cultures, religions, festivals & food is also an important part of what we do on a daily basis

Makaton trained

I am currently level 1 Makaton trained, and very passionate about using this form of language and communication. I have seen first hand how learning and communicating using Makaton has helped young children’s speech and vocabulary develop. I plan to extend my knowledge and training in this area and I use signs daily in my setting with the children.

What others are saying about this home...


I couldn’t think of anyone better to look after our little boy! Jo is unbelievably welcoming, friendly and so amazing with our little one. Her loving and caring nature is exactly what we want for our little boy. Her home nursery is truly inspiring and she always puts the children’s best interests and learning at the heart of everything does. Her home makes for a great learning through play environment, I would highly recommend Jo and can safely say your children will love it there!

Jillian Gunnigle

Jo is genuinely passionate about children being given the best start in life. As a mother, she is dedicated to ensuring her children are given lots of different opportunities and is a real ambassador of learning through play. Jo is an extremely positive person and highly organised. Jo has supported me by caring for my children. I always know when my children are with Jo, they are in a safe, fun, happy, environment. Jo is very nurturing and I have no doubt that any child in her care will thrive and will get involved in a host of enjoyable activities.

Jennifer Brown

Jo has looked after both my 1year old and my 7year old and I find her to be kind, trustworthy, professional and responsive to all their needs. She has a natural ability to put people at ease and her home is a welcoming, warm and friendly environment. Jo is creative and engaging with the children offering a variety of toys, games and activities to stimulate their development in natural way. She always has time for parents and is happy to chat, offer advice and help or just to listen. I would highly recommend her to anyone and am 100% confident my children are in good safe hands while in her care.

Kostas & Thomi

It is just over year that our daughter has been with Jo and we couldn't be more happier. Jo is providing a selection of different sensory play that helps our daughter develop, she loves the daily routine while learns new things every day. The daily updates on the online journal play testament of the variety of different activities that the children experience with Jo. Everyday something different! Jo's dedication on providing the best care shows when she puts all this extra effort to understand and communicate with our daughter, seeing as English is her second language. As a result, she managed to create a really strong bond with our daughter and that shows how caring Jo is. As parents we can comfortably say that we are absolutely sure that our child is safe and very well taken care of under Jo's care. We would highly recommend Jo to anyone who is looking for the best care for their children.
