About my home

Having worked in various settings such as primary schools, nurseries, clubs and summer camps, I have a passion for the education and wellbeing of children. I am very patient, caring and considerate of the needs of every child. I believe that every child matters and will take a holistic approach to their needs. I love how young children learn through play and they fascinate me with their inquisitive and enquiring minds.

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.

What are others saying about Sue's Creatives tiney home nursery?

Aunt Sue, you are a very child-loving carer. I can see your ambition and joy working with kids and it shows through the relationship they have with you.

Lesharn and children, Daughters friend

It was very noticeable how my child not only adapted to the environment but to Sue's energy - she didn't want to leave. As a whole I felt this was the best place for my child as I felt comfortable with Sue the moment I met her.

Paul, Friend

I have known Sue for over 12 years. My daughter who is 11 years old has been looked after by Sue since she was 15 months old. She has now grown into a happy and confident young lady. Sue is great with children, always having activities for them, playing/interacting with them, and going out. As a parent, I am completely confident in her care and knowledge, and she put me at ease with her kind, trustworthy and professional manner. I would very much recommend her to anyone looking for childcare.
