About this home

I'm a very experienced early years educator and before setting up my nursery in my own home, I worked in a range of local nurseries supporting children at a range of stages. My home-from-home setting offers families flexibility and affordability.

I look forward to meeting your family and showing you around our safe, calm and enabling home!

About our tiney childminder

I'm passionate about helping children get the best start in life and it's been a life-long dream to run my own setting. I've built up 13 years of early years experience in a range of nurseries and bring a broad range of skills that equip me to meet the needs of all children join my setting.

My home is a calm and positive environment. I focus on praise and reinforcing good self-care and communication habits to support children's independance and interactions with others.

Unique highlights

Outdoor play every day

Every day children have the opportunity to explore the outdoors. We enjoy nature in local parks, socialise with other children in local playgroups and count buses en route to school pick ups.

Preparation for starting school

Children are introduced to early literacy and maths concepts little and often to build understanding. It's fun! We do this through singing, rhyme and plenty of play.

In this neighbourhood

I am on the boarder of Islington and Hackney. I have access to the surrounding parks, library, farm and two fabulous duck ponds. I'm a big believer in the power of fresh air and stretch of the legs - so we get out every day to explore the outdoors at all times of year.
