About this home

Hi! My name is Mélanie and I run La Petite Bulle tiney home bilingual nursery! With years of experience looking after children, I am very happy to be able to welcome your little ones in my home for them to have fun, explore, create friendships, learn French as well as the Early Years curriculum and develop physically and emotionally in a safe and protected environment!

About our tiney childminder

The nursery is spacious with the main play area in the front room where children will find plenty of toys and activities ready to support play time and learning whilst having fun in a safe environmenty! The kitchen is used for preparing meals, eating and doing exciting, messy activities like painting, collage, face painting, T-shirt design and much more! 👩‍🎨 The garden is a place to have the freedom to play in a completely secure environment, learn about nature and do a little bit of gardening 🌱

Unique highlights


Children will learn French as part of their daily activities, in a very organic way like bilingual children and along side the British Early Years curriculum

Nature loving

As a Nature lover, children can expect to spend a lot of time playing outdoors. A lot of thought has also been given to create a sustainable space and wooden toys have been chosen over plastic as much as possible


Firm believer that well-being comes from inside, La Petite Bulle runs short meditation and Yoga sessions, both formidable ways to keep children joyful and grounded at the same time

Jane Bickley

Mélanie has run the French Club once a week after school. This was an extremely popular club for children 4-7 years old and was done on a purely voluntary basis… Mélanie planned each session carefully so the children were fully engaged and she was always keen to make sure the children had the best experiences. Activities in the club included; lots of practical activities as well as verbal explanations and repetition. Many of the children talked enthusiastically about the club and what they had done, including tasting French biscuits, listening to French pop music, as well as speaking French! At the end of each block sessions, Mélanie diligently wrote a brief summary for each child about how they had got on at the club and what they had enjoyed or excelled at. This gave the parents good feedback about what their child had achieved and the feedback from parents and children was very positive. I would not hesitate to recommend Mélanie to run a similar club or work with other children, her calm and gentle manner would encourage even the shyest child as well as engaging the more gregarious.

I have known Mélanie since September 2011 when our daughters commenced reception together at Ashmead Primary school. I had started a degree and asked Mélanie to look after my daughter. Afternoons with Mélanie included painting, baking and exploring the parks and much more. Mélanie provided a personal service and was respectful of our family’s cultural traditions whilst being attentive to my daughter’s needs and enhancing her personal development. I held confidence in Mélanie that she would safeguard my daughter and always provided a professional and thoughtful approach. I felt that Mélanie made my work life balance easier and felt fortunate to leave my daughter in her care. I always felt Mélanie promoted independence and empowered my daughter to be confident. Mélanie also used French language with my daughter which has proved useful as her father is French speaking. Home cooked fresh food was provided and Mélanie maintained an organised and clean home environment. Mélanie provided me with evidence of achievements and photos of my daughter’s day. Mélanie offered excellent child care and her kindness and care was exemplary. As my daughter grew we continued to maintain the relationship and now our daughters are friends and we enjoy meeting up. My daughter always came home happy having been well cared for. Mélanie is a kind, warm, loving and energetic woman. Mélanie has a gift with children and her organisation skills and resourcefulness are very effective.
