I have over 12 years experience and a level 6 qulification in early education and 2 children of my own. I believe in learning through doing so I will be keeping your little ones busy and engaged all day both in my home nursery and when we are out and about in the local community.

Unique highlights

Early Years Teacher

Gained a postgraduate diploma (level 6) in early years education and a BSc in language and communication sciences

Makaton trained

During my degree in language sciences (SALT) I learnt Makaton. I use some signs to support baby signing and communication with children.

Child lead

I believe strongly in child lead learning. Providing an enabling environment for them to develop which centers around children's interests and their age and stage of development to ensure the experiences offered helps build the child into a strong independent learner.

Independent Learning

My approach to learning in the early years is to ensure a child is supported to do things independently.

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.

I am just off Worth Road with a small Cops of trees behind my house.

We spend lots of time outdoors all year round and enjoy outings to the library, local playgroups and soft plays as well as national tryst sites and more.
