About this home

A home from home setting that encourages learning through play and outdoor adventures.

Here at Wildflowers we have a large child friendly back garden with a mud kitchen, and a summerhouse that the children can enjoy as their outdoor learning classroom and playroom.

Wildflowers is a brand new intimate childminding setting with a small ratio of children, offering a highly personalised approach for each child.

About our tiney childminder

I have worked in the childcare industry for over 12 years in variety of home and educational settings as a nanny, a teaching assistant and an early years practitioner. I have set up Wildflowers tiney home nursery to offer a more personalised approach that caters to each child’s needs. A smaller ratio for more 1-1 attention which enhances learning and enables the children to create lasting bonds with myself and the other children in my care.

Unique highlights

Outdoor area

We have a lovely big garden that has a mud kitchen and a vegetable patch for the children to enjoy.

Summerhouse

A spacious summerhouse that has been purposely built with our Wildflowers in mind. This is their outdoor classroom and playroom with many exciting areas.

Adventure Days

Our Wildflowers enjoy many outdoor adventures, days out and attend weekly classes such as story time at the local library and forest school!

The dream

What others are saying about this home...

Aiste

Katie is the most caring, attentive , loving and creative childminder that I know. She is extremely organised and reliable. Katie thoroughly enjoys planning different activities to facilitate learning, she recognises the importance of outdoor play as a foundation for children’s healthy development and encourages different kinds of play. She has a big interest in developmental psychology and is always happy to share her knowledge on overcoming some challenges in different stages of development. She continues to build her knowledge by attending various courses and seminars and she is always up to date with the latest research findings in early childhood education. As a first time mum, I have very high expectations for my son’s childcare providers, however I have never had to question Katie’s abilities. She has been absolutely wonderful with my little boy, I could not recommend her enough!

Faye, Ezra’s Mum

I have known Katie for around two years now and I can confidently vouch for how amazingly Katie cares for children. I know Katie through the nanny world. As a first time parent I am more than happy to leave my little boy in her care. I know she would always have his best interest at heart and help him develop to his full potential. Katie is loving, caring and kind. Her level of care is second to none and her passion for childcare means Katie is always learning new skills and expanding her knowledge. Katies parenting style is very much in line with my own in the ways of a gentle approach, very outdoorsy and allowing children to be independent whilst supporting them and helping them feel secure so they can flourish. Any child in Katies care will be looked after exceptionally well and I could not ask for anyone better to care for my little boy.

Kiansh Mum

“I feel so lucky we have found Katie to look after our little boy Kiansh.I always feel content whilst leaving for work knowing he is in the best care and having the best time exploring and learning in her lovely garden and summerhouse . At wildflowers, they are always up to something, whether that’s natural play, arts & crafts or days out etc! He comes home happy & content . The communication is brilliant , we are updated with photos & how our little boy is going through his day/week. Katie takes them out on most days, park, outdoor adventures toddler mornings etc . His independence, awareness of the world in general and social skills have improved since he began with wildflowers tiney home nursery. Katie quickly got to know his little ways, when he needed naps, etc . Her house and childminding facilities are amazing ,I would recommend to anyone !! 10/10 care “
