About my home

I live in Clapton with my husband and our two young children. I've created an environment that encourages fun and interactive learning through the use of arts and crafts. I really enjoy getting to know children as individuals, discovering their different ways of learning and how we, as parents and childminders, can help them grow.

I prioritise the working partnership between parents and childminders to make sure the children can continue to develop their knowledge, creativity, reading and maths at home.

I am really into fitness and health so as a childminder, I include plenty of physical activity and outings that relate to sport. I provide healthy meals and snacks that adhere to the children's dietary requirements, and always encourage children to have their five a day!

Unique highlights

A rooftop garden

My tiney home has a rooftop garden that is accessible and safe for children.

We enjoy the outdoors

Always looking to go on nature walks in and around our local parks and Hackney marshes.

Healthy outlook

I enjoy keeping fit and active and plan lots of healthy activities for children!

Culture and background

Being from the Caribbean, I love to find out more about different cultural backgrounds. I share that knowledge with children so they learn how to be respectful and appreciative of other cultures.

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 nursery is situated close to the beautiful parkland of Millfields and Hackney Marshes at Lea Bridge - an ideal location for the children to get out and about and explore nature.

The Lea Valley Horse riding centre is within walking distance and children can enjoy looking at the wildlife, houseboats and kayakers on the River Lea.
