About this home

Tiney Stars Childminding is located in a quiet area with access to local parks, beaches, a library, soft play area and local transport links. A spacious home both outdoors and indoors with areas for messy play, crafts, song time and quiet time with lots of outdoor resources and outdoor activities. I know how important it is for parents to choose the right childcare provider and it is my aim to provide parents and families with a worry-free home from home feel in a safe and educational environment

What others are saying about this home...

Jodie Bunday

Thank you for being fab. Thomas has loved it.


Steph has looked after my little girl for a while now. From the outset I knew she was the right choice for us. Her home is so welcoming and obviously she cares for the children. The children are offered a fun and enjoyable environment that supports and encourages their development. My daughter has came along leaps and bounds whilst at Stephsand also thrived from the interaction with the other children. Steph offers a range of stimulation that you don't get in all settings. I would thoroughly recommend Steph for children of all ages.


Steph has looked after piper from being pretty much a baby as she helped care for her at a childcare centre and as soon as Steph started with tiney stars I got pipers name down straight away. Piper attends tiney stars regularly during the week and also in the holidays. Steph does an amazing job with piper in play and learning, always putting multiple updates on the tiney app for parents to see. I am regularly updated on pipers progress, learning, play and behaviour offering advice and help where needed. Steph has been amazing with piper and also a good friend to myself, piper always looks forward to going with steph and is always kept busy doing lots of different activities, crafts and play. Thank you so much xxxxx


Lauren Hayton I recommends Tiney < Stars Childminding. 2m-6 Best childcare setting! I cannot recommend Steph enough, she is amazing with my son and he always loves going do lots of fun activities and see his friends!


My child Kamila has come on great since starting at tiney stars childminding. Steph is very good at helping my child learn and come on with her development strong. My child is always well cared and supported when attending Tiney stars, she always has fun and learns and engages with what steph has planned for all the children. The services steph does at Tiney stars helps out a lot with working parents like myself and it fits in well with work schedules. I'm happy with all the support my child receives and I personally see a huge difference in the development of my child since she has been going there and she is always so happy engaging with all over children who also attends.


Steph is a fantastic childminder and I can't thank her enough. She's the first childminder I've ever had as all my other children have been in nursery. The one on one and personal observations where she has really got to know Thomas over the past year means he is learning and is with someone he trusts and is always there for him. She takes an interest in his home life and helps to get him used to changes that are coming, for example i'm pregnant so she has been getting dolly's out and pushchairs and bouncers so he gets used to things being different in the house. I wouldn't want anyone else and feel like she is part of the family not only a childminder but has grown to be a really good friend and like a auntie to Thomas.


Since starting with Steph I have seen a huge improvement in Bella with her confidence and speech. She absolutely loves going and sometimes doesn't even want to go home because she's had so much fun. Henry and Hallie are always happy at drop off and pick up and love all the different toys steph has for them. We also love the daily photos and updates we receive for them so we can see what they've done in their day. All my kids love going to Steph's and from a parent's point of view I think she's absolutely amazing!


Harper loves coming to stephs house. She does so many different actives and adventures out with them. Harper runs straight in and is so happy to go xxxxxxx


Reagan enjoys coming to tiney stars to play and see Steph and his friends. Reagan has came on a lot with having communication with Steph and children. Steph is really good with Reagan.


Would like to thank Steph for the last year my kids have loved coming every Friday after school and in the holiday the look forward to there adventures, they have learned so much through the walks you do with them


Steph has looked after my twins girls since May, and I couldn't ask for a more friendly and homely setting for them to attend.Steph's setting is a home from home for my girlsThey are happy which makes me happy, knowing they are settled, well looked after and their development is supported.
