About this home

I live with my husband, our 1 year old son and our two lovely cats named Binky and Moo. We have access to a variety of activities all within walking distance including library, local parks, large areas for physical play and picnics, baby groups and the amenities within the village. I have set up our home to be warm and welcoming for all families. Above all else, I want children to feel safe and secure to express themselves confidently and have fun! 😃

About our tiney childminder

Welcome to my Tiney Home. Both I and my husband, along with our son, can’t wait to meet you.

I’ve set up my tiney home to be a fun, joyous and welcoming space for children to thrive in confidence and experience a range of activities to support their development in all areas of learning. I have nearly 10 years experience in Childcare and have achieved numerous qualifications.

I have always loved working with children, it brings me great joy to guide and support them as they develop.

Unique highlights

Early Years Experience

I have almost 10 years experience working in childcare from an early years practitioner to an early years room leader and manager. During my time, I have achieved multiple qualifications and certificates including Multi Agency Safeguarding Children, Designated Safeguarding Lead, Developing language for 2 year olds and Supporting children with SEND.


I never shun away from getting messy and creative. A lot of my activities involve painting, crafts, sensory and messy trays using variety of different materials.

Outdoor space

I have a secure garden for children to let their energy run wild rain or shine.
