Manitas / little hands tiney home nursery

Hello, my name is Thanya and I have created a safe space where your children can learn, play and engage with the Spanish language. I believe in giving children the tools to explore their interests to encourage their development. Learning through play will allow children to reach their full potential. Going outside on a daily basis to forests and parks is part of our routine and a joy to the children.

We are only 5 minutes away from South Woodford Station and bus stops.

About my home

With a cozy intercultural home environment, at my tiney home nursery you will find an inclusive place for all families. We offer an incredible opportunity to learn Spanish in the happiest way: through playing; and combined with daily outdoor activities. High quality educational experiences centered around the children interests, and the EYFS guidelines.

Compassion and respect for others are one of our golden rules. 💛

Unique highlights

Learning a second language!

As a Social Educator professional and Spanish being my first language your children will learn Spanish from their early years as a part of their routine. This will be done through songs, books, games, boards images and much more. Moreover, important respect, tolerance, empathy, care for others and individual liberty are some of the values we promote in our tiney home nursery.

Special home made meals from a professional chef.

My husband was Chef for around 10 years, and now he will be cooking again daily meals for the children.

My passion for children

Children are my passion but learning from them and with them is what gives me joy. Every child is unique, they only need the opportunity and the tools to be able to thrive. Having a safe and secure environment full of resources is all a child needs to build confidence, self esteem, empathy and imagination!

Working with families

Parents are as important to us as their children! Working together to plan next steps of every child is my priority.

What are others saying about Manitas / little hands tiney home nursery?


I have been extremely happy with the care my daughter has received, and the great progress she has made whilst in Thanya's care. Thanya's home is always welcoming, clean and well organised. My daughter has great fun playing with all the toys available and with the other children in her care. Thanya is great communicator and has no trouble in gaining my daughter's confidence, therefore encouraging good behaviour, kindness and compassion to others, both skills that are important to us at home. All in all, we are thoroughly happy with the level of care my daughter receives, and I am certain that being in such a positive and happy environment is helping her to develop into a confident and self assured little girl. Learning Spanish at Thanya's home my daughter has had a big impact in her language, and she is very confident speaking Spanish. I would absolutely recommend Thanya as a great and reliable childminder.

I couldn’t be happier with the care my daughter receives at Thanya’s house. She has thrived since being there and actively looks forward to going each day. She thinks of Thanya more like another family member than a childminder. Thanya puts so much effort into planning educational games and outings and activities that keep the children entertained. It has been incredible to see my daughter’s confidence and independence grow in the months she has been there. We have also been thrilled with the improvement in her Spanish as we don’t speak it at home and absolutely love the idea of giving her such a valuable life skill. Thanya cooks healthy and varied meals for the children so my daughter now enjoys foods such as lentils and chickpeas which she hadn’t tried before. Thanya’s communication with us has been fantastic and we trust her to keep us in the loop with any key decisions. I would recommend this childcare setting to everyone!

Thanya is everything I hoped I'd find in a childminder when I decided to go back to work. It is not easy to leave your baby with someone that is not you or family but with Thanya I feel relax, I know my baby is in the best hands. My baby (8 months old when we started leaving her with Thanya) loves being there and enjoy having time with other kids. Thanya creates a fun and educational environment, she is a kind, patient person and fantastic childminder. I am very glad we found her and highly recommend her!
