About my home

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

Pets

I have two cats named Binky and Moomoo. They are both very friendly & Binky especially loves the attention. I believe it’s a great learning experience for children to care for pets and learn to be gentle and respectful towards them.

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.

Outdoor space

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

Story time

Children can learn and express themselves so much from stories. Not only does it support their language, but also their imagination and curiosity guessing what happens next and extending story time further through creating their own endings, or re-enacting their own versions in role play.

Creativity

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.

tiney book club

Sharing books is at the heart of all tiney home nurseries – it’s fantastic for children’s imaginations, for building vocabulary, for speaking and listening, for personal, social and emotional development, and so much more. Through our partnerships with Walker Books and the National Literacy Trust, our childminders run creative activities around a wonderfully diverse range of books.
