About my home

Hi my name is Mesha and I’ve worked with children for the past 15 years with my longest title being a private nanny. My tiney home learning style very much reflects the Montessori and forest feel. We love children exploring, getting messy (mud play), being creative with our music corner (drums, piano,guitar....) I have a Btec 1st in performing arts 🎭, so there’s a lot of learning through these at our nursery. We have a great outdoor space with a mud kitchen and designated sleep area.

What are others saying about Mesha’s Little Love Bugs tiney home nursery?

We were lucky enough to have Mesha as our child’s nanny when he was 4 years old. She is one of the most kindhearted, sunny and reliable people we have entrusted our boy to. Hi is now nearly 10 and, by now we have had the chance to meet many professionals caring for children. Mesha is really one of those rare people who’s got a natural gift for connecting with children in an authentic, sensitive and nurturing way. A real Pearl. Vera

Mesha looked after our son from when he was 1 year old. She already came with an amazing recommendation from a friend of ours who worked for an artist in his live/work space. Mesha was the nanny to their 3 children. Our friend said he had been with her and the children daily and if he ever had kids himself Mesha would be the only person he would trust with them – so obviously we knew we had to meet her! She came for an interview at our house and we knew from the moment we met her that she would be perfect. She has such and calm and friendly manner, is so comfortable with children and just makes everyone feel so at ease. Our son had never been looked after by anyone other than myself, my husband and my mum but he and Mesha became the best of friends pretty much instantly. She is super warm, very fun, and brightens up the gloomiest room. The only reason she stopped working for us is because she started her own family, otherwise we would never have let her go! She really became a part of our family and we miss seeing her so regularly but the nursery is going to be such a wonderful thing. It’s a long time ambition of hers and I know she will throw herself into it with a big smile on her face.

We’ve known Mesha and her wonderful family for about two years now but it feels like we’ve known them forever. The moment we met, I could feel Mesha’s warmth and kindness straight away through her smile. It was like we were always friends. I never felt more sure about trusting someone with my baby. Her thoroughness is met with a calmness that is hard to match. When she talks about her love and passion for caring for children it comes straight from the heart. Our son has become a better person because of Mesha’s love and attention. He’s also found a best friend in her son! We are so grateful that we have crossed paths with someone who has the stamina, grace and patience to handle our very energetic and emotional child. I mean they all are like that right? We highly recommend Mesha’s Little Love Bugs and are happy to answer any questions other parents may have

Mesha was recommended to me as a nanny by a friend. She started to take care of my daughter when she was 1.5 years old 3 days per week, when I had to return to work after maternity leave. Immediately Mesha made a connection to my daughter and allowed for lots of time to get to know each other. She has a very natural and kind approach and I could see that she was enjoying following the child's interest and responding to that in an animating, funny and interesting way. The settling did not take long as Mesha built up the trust very quickly and Karla was happy to stay with her very quickly. I was very lucky as Mesha's son is only a few months younger than my daughter, so we decided together it would be nice to join them twice in the week and it was the best thing. The two children became good friends, Mesha helped them gently to share toys by communicating to each other and was absolutely capable of handling them together. They had lots of fun playing, singing, walking and doing everything together. Mesha was also preparing healthy freshly cooked lunches and snacks and managed it all very well by being focused and calm and always kind. She was always on time, very well organised and turned up every morning with a smile on her face. Mesha has a very natural approach to children and was always well prepared by planning out the day with new activities, inside and outside and she also organised to take both children to the library or toddler singing. At the end of the day Mesha did let me know how the day went and shared her observations. We had really good communications with each other. I am very thankful for the time my daughter spent with her. My daughter was well prepared then to attend nursery after a year. We are still keeping in touch.
