About this home

Bee-utiful Bubbas tiney home nursery is situated in the heart of Southwater, West Sussex. We have plenty of opportunities to go on walks and to visit the local play parks and the lovely country park. There is a regular bus route into Horsham with local shops within a 5 min walk. Southwater Infant school is a 2 min walk away and the Junior school a 5 min walk away. We are lucky to have a lovely a playroom for the children to play in and a decent size garden for outdoor play.

About our tiney childminder

I have setup my tiney home nursery to provide affordable childcare in a safe and warm environment. At setting where the children feel comfortable and at home which will ultimately promote their learning. I will create exciting opportunities that the children can explore and learn about the world. I have always had a passion for working with children, I enjoy watching them learn and grow and now I can do this from my own home along with my own children!

Unique highlights

Outdoor space

I have a private secure garden on the premise where the children play outdoors. I love to extend the activities into the garden such as messy tuff trays and mud kitchen activities where we can mix up imaginary concoctions.

Short walk from local playgrounds

Within a 5 min walk there lovely play parks we can explore and meet new friends along the way. There is also Southwater Country park where we can watch wildlife, feed the ducks and go for muddy walks.

Fine Art BA Hons

I have a fine art degree which I am so excited to be able to reference back to with the children. I have a personal interest in expressive painting but want to introduce the children exploring new materials, getting messy with sensory trays and be creative in the kitchen with some baking.

Our 2.5 year old daughter loves being at Melissa’s. My husband and I never worry when she’s there. Melissa provides not only a great home environment but also a brilliant learning environment for my daughter. Melissa is great at working alongside us and my daughter’s needs. Melissa is very accommodating, and nothing is a problem for her. Melissa is great at communicating with us about everything, should it be anything positive or negative. My daughter loves going to Melissa’s. She can never wait to get there and is always talking about her days there and the adventures and activities they have done. My daughter is such a loving and chatty child, and being at Melissa’s bringing’s this out of her even more.

My daughter has been looked after by Melissa for over a year now. She always looks forward to seeing Melissa and enjoys her time with her.Melissa is very good at thinking up fun fun things to do but educational too. As a parent I always feel confident leaving my child with her.I feel very lucky to have found such a great childminder.

We are so pleased with everything at Bee-utiful Bubbas. Everyday my daughter seems to experience something new and Melissa puts in so much effort on excursions and activities and keeps us informed. My daughter absolutely loves going and gets excited. My daughter is developing so quickly and it’s such a comfort to know she’s having a wonderful time literally everyday, not to mention the lovely arts and crafts she brings home. We can’t thank you enough! J and

My daughter has been going to Melissa for nearly a year now and I must say, she exceeded all of my expectations as a childminder. From the moment I met her, I could tell that she truly had a passion for working with children and ensuring their well being and development was top priority. Melissa has always provided a warm, loving, and safe environment for my daughter, who always looks forward to going to her house. She consistently engages with the children by playing games, creating arts and crafts, and providing educational activities that keep them all entertained and stimulated. One of the things I love is the communication between myself and Melissa. She always keeps me informed of my daughters progress either on WhatsApp or via the Tiney app and is always available to answer any questions. Overall I am very impressed. Melissa is always well organised, professional and goes above and beyond to ensure the children are taken care of and are happy. She follows the relevant safety guidelines and regulations, giving me peace of mind knowing my child is always good hands while in her care. I honestly cannot recommend Melissa enough. She is an exceptional childminder who truly cares about the development of the children and goes the extra mile to provide a positive and loving environment. Thank you for being so wonderful 🙂

Both my children love their time with Melissa and always look forward to their Wednesdays with her. Melissa always makes sure there are different activities for them both to enjoy each week and they always have a lovely time with her and her family. She is both kind and reliable and we are very happy to have found her. I would very happily recommend her to other parents! I also would like to add that Melissa has a lovely play space which my kids love. It’s well thought out and designed.

Melissa is absolutely brilliant with the children and my son loved coming in every week to a variety of different toys and activities. She was always taking him on walks and different places to learn new things. Melissa also helped me with my sons speech and was encouraging him to say new words. Would highly recommend Melissa to anybody who needs a childminder.
