About my home

I enjoy working in natural settings whilst supporting children’s educational growth all within the EYFS framework. I believe that nature based learning helps children to be physically active as well as flourish holistically into happy and independent little individuals. I will get the children to connect with nature by taking them on nature walks, scavenger hunts, reading under trees and feeding the ducks.

Unique highlights

After school club

I provide after school club with pick up and drop offs. Home work support

Home cooked meal

Hot nutritious home cooked meals made with fresh ingredients

Access to Gardens and Fields.

Every day involves taking nature walks, playing in the park or feeding the local ducks.

My Experience (SEN)

I have over 8 years of experience working with different age group children. In my years of working with children I have worked as a nanny, a childminder and worked in primary school as a learning support assistant. In my experience of working with children the majority of times I have worked with children with special educational needs. I am myself a mother of two delightful children who absolutely rock my world. I enjoy working in natural settings and supporting children’s education with nature based surroundings

Sharing books is at the heart of all tiney home nurseries – it’s fantastic for children’s imaginations, for building vocabulary, for speaking and listening, for personal, social and emotional development, and so much more. Through our partnerships with Walker Books and the National Literacy Trust, our childminders run creative activities around a wonderfully diverse range of books.

Windsor is a town on the River Thames in southeast England, just west of London.

It’s home to Windsor Castle, a residence of the British Royal Family. Built by William The Conqueror in the 11th century, the castle was extensively remodelled by subsequent monarchs. My tiney home is situated close to the Royal Windsor Racecourse and the river Thames which attracts plenty of wildlife. There are also several great spots for nature walks. Additionally, there are 2 children play grounds close by, as well as weekly toddlers group and soft play areas close to my set up.

Your child's neighbourhood

Forest walk, collecting pine cones, leaves etc.

Toddler groups, parks, soft play area, library etc.

Pond to feed ducks, watch different kind of birds, sheep etc.

Dr Sudha Dhall

I would like to recommend Renuka who looked after my daughter from when she was 4 years old. Renuka has a lovely kind manner, she is lovely with children. She helped with cooking for my daughter , taking her out, doing homework. She is conscientious, punctual, professional and trustworthy. I have no hesitation in recommending her as very trusted childcare provider.

I have known Mrs Renuka Malik since her birth as she is my first cousin and more like a younger sister to me. Renuka is a warm, caring and a very loyal person. She has great work and family ethics. She is very considerate and patient with the young and old alike. Renuka is and has always been very good with children and had developed a keen sense of responsibility and perseverance at a very young age. Renuka has taken care of my two children and has been babysitting them since they were born, now she cares for her own two little children with same compassion and diligence. Her interests and qualifications matched with her experience which is more than eight years of working the field of education makes her the perfect person for the role she is looking to fulfil and I have all the faith and confidence in her abilities. Renuka is an intelligent, capable and dedicated young woman who demonstrates impressive professionalism. I’m confident that she can handle any role and situation with thoughtfulness and maturity.
