About my home

My name is Sheri, I have three children aged 14, 14 and 11. After many years of working in nurseries and schools, which I loved, I decided I wanted to start my own business and set up a tiney home. I am so passionate about what I do and enjoy using the wealth of experience gained in previous placements to help children learn and grow as individuals. I’ve created a homely, engaging learning space where children can play and explore in a safe, secure and clean environment.

I plan weekly for children working in line with the EYFS, observe children's progress and plan activities for each child accordingly. Each child will have a learning journal with samples of their work and targets which parents can request to see at any time.

Children can access the activities set up daily in in the outdoor area directly from the play room, giving children the choice to play and explore inside or outside with a free flow feel!

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.
