About my home

Children benefit from views of the River Thames and lots of open space all around my setting. They can enjoy visiting a nearby farm, local parks, a supermarket and the Docklands museum.

I am a mother of three children ranging from six to 13 years. I've lived in Tower Hamlets all my life, and have been living in the Isle of Dogs since 2008. My own children attend George Green's school and Cubitt Town school. I am a loving and caring person whom loves to take care of children and play with them. I spent two years volunteering in my local Children's Centre.

Life at a tiney home nursery

tiney family pack

Want a flavour of what you can expect when you sign up with one of our tiney childminders? Have a look through our family pack, which should answer your big questions about all things tiney, from our education philosophy to how we make money - and lots more besides.

tiney book club

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.

My setting is ideally located on the border of Tower Hamlets, with easy access to Canary Wharf, South Quay, Limehouse, Poplar and the River Thames.

I am close to Cubitt Town School, St Lukes Primary School and George Green's School. There is also a nearby farm which children enjoy exploring, several different parks only walking distance away and a park just below my home nursery. Docklands Museum and the foot tunnel are many of the different things both children and families enjoy exploring and children can learn so much from about the area where they live or visit.
