About this home

A tiney home with local transport links (close to the A1M and Biggleswade train station) with lots of parks and open spaces on our doorstep to explore. Kindness is at the center of everything we do and I have created a space where we celebrate ours and each others successes and differences. Where we nature our own uniqueness and everyone's voices are heard and valued. I love the magic of watching the world through the eyes of children. Their innocence and innate excitement to learn and explore.

About our tiney childminder

Hello I'm Lucy founder of Little Rainbows Tiney Home Nursery providing a safe, warm, welcoming, nurturing, home from home setting in Biggleswade. A space where your little ones can learn and thrive through play and adventures. With lots of time exploring in nature. We have lots of wonderful parks on our doorstep and our own garden with plenty of space to play and enjoy our mud kitchen, sandpit and other activities. I love creating inviting, engaging invitations to play in line with the EYFS.

Unique highlights

A Levels

I have A levels in English, Art and French

Rainbow Running Club

In 2019 I founded the Rainbow Running Club a community for women who have experienced infertility and baby loss and I had the honor of watching the most incredible community of women come together to support one another through the most heartbreaking moments and it's been one of my proudest accomplishments. I organised in person and online events, (across the UK) (running/ yoga/ retreats etc), created merchandise, was interviewed for several podcasts, fund-raised for Tommy's and even appeared in a TV documentary. I learnt so much through the experience, the key points being the importance of creating a safe space where others feel heard and supported and the power of being a part of a community and how life changing that can be.

Mud Kitchen

We have a secure garden with a beautiful homemade mud kitchen in, this has been our most popular and most used play space. With lots of space to create potions, mud pies, science experiments, tea parties etc the options are endless.
