We listen, empathise and encourage parents/carers to work with us in order to provide the best childcare to meet children’s individual needs. We provide outdoor/ indoor activities to support social play and fun.

About my home

Our home nursery provides both indoor and outdoor settings with many resources to encourage learning through play and repetition. We have 3 primary schools close by so we can provide school pickup, assist your child with their homework and other activities such as learning basic Quran/ Arabic, baking & cooking healthy snacks. There’s a local park, a library and a leisure centre with swimming pool only 15 minutes walk from our home which provides sports and swimming lessons for all ages.

Unique highlights


I speak Arabic, English, Hindi, Punjabi and Urdu. I teach Arabic and Urdu as extracurricular activities.

Primary school teacher and SENDCO

As an EYFS/ Primary Class teacher and a SENDCO I have vast experience of working with SEND children including some who had medical needs.

Multi skilled mummy

As a mother I have always taken pride and initiative in engaging my girls with learning many lifelong skills such cooking, baking, sewing and painting. Which I still love to do ❤️ with my learners.

Super active mind and body

I love meditation, yoga and keeping active. I have always encouraged my learners to join in with outdoors/ indoors PE activities including musical movements, yoga for kids and brain gym.

Montessori Skills

Inspired by Maria Montessori approach and teaching techniques I encourage my learners to use safe tools for self investigations, repetitions, allowing them to explore trial and errors in order to become confident independent learners.

Reggio Emilia Philosophy

I believe in Reggio Emilia approach too and encourage my learners to be curious by engaging in their environment let it be my classroom, kitchen or outdoors. Hence a variety of malleable multi-sensory resources are provided such as play-dough sand, water, clay, chalk and colours.

Friendly cats

We have 2 beautiful friendly cats (Thor & Chanel). They are 5 years old, British short hair very tamed, warm and affectionate who love attention and enjoy playing alongside adults and children.

Nurturing families

I am a qualified and trained facilitator who is able to assist parents/ carers to work with their best abilities in order to promote emotional health and well-being by adapting nurturing skills and developing healthy relationships with their children and families.

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.

Our local “Jubilee Park” has newly purpose built children’s play ground and designed exercise area which is only 5 minutes walk from our home.

Next to the park there’s a health clinic “Jubilee clinic” which serves the local community by health professionals such as GPS, health visitors, Speech and Physiotherapists. There’s a small local library attached to the clinic and we are hoping that the library will restart its “story tell” sessions for children which was a routine in the past. We are also lucky to have a beautiful walk around a canal where families get together for picnic and long walks.
