About this home

Home from home childcare in a gentle and nurturing environment. A tiney home close to local schools. Regular trips to parks and nature areas. Secure garden for children to play in. Activities are based around children's interests. We also follow a seasonal nature curriculum. I have previously been working as an Ofsted registered childminder and have now made the switch to tiney.

About our tiney childminder

My tiney home offers a safe and nurturing environment for all children. I have been a childminder since 2020 and recently made the switch from Ofsted registered to being registered with tiney. I enjoy following the children's interests and getting outside in nature. We regularly go for nature walks in the local area.
I have experience of working with children with English as an additional language.

Unique highlights

Nature Curriculum

We follow the Exploring Nature With Children curriculum. This is a seasonal, nature-based study that gives children a year-round understanding of nature.

Hygge Accredited

Hygge in the Early Years accredited setting proven to offer a cosy and nurturing environment. Children learn best when they feel safe and loved.

Allergy Aware

My own daughter has coeliac disease so cannot have any foods containing gluten. I can confidently accommodate children with special dietary requirements.

My daughter started with Kat when she was 13 months old, my daughter didn't have contact with many people and was afraid of people, today my daughter is super confident. My first language is Portuguese and today my 20 month old daughter understands both English and Portuguese. I just have to say that I'm really happy with Kat. Thank you so much Kat for everything.

I liked it and would take my son again if I had to. I liked that as soon as I left he sent me a picture to tell me how he settled in and how he felt. When I went to pick up my son, he was happy and did not want to leave

Our little 2yo girl, has been with Kat for over a year now, and we couldn’t be happier with the care she receives. Kat's home is set up well for little ones, with a great play area in the back garden, and she provides a great range of activities for the children in her care - lots of walks, crafts, gardening, books, etc. Our daughter has not only grown very attached to Kat, but also to her two lovely girls who she gets on great with. We are able to drop her off knowing that she will be happy, safe and stimulated. We are so glad we found Kat!
