About Ros

I’ve always had a special interest in the early years and after qualifying as a primary school teacher, I developed my skills in nursery and reception classrooms. I established my own home-based setting in January 2016 and drew on my experience to offer a well-rounded education and care.

Ros’s tiney home nursery has adjoining indoor and outdoor play space where children are free to move between different activities.

Equipment and storage in the light-filled conservatory is organised at child-height so that even the youngest toddlers can begin to develop their independence. Ros believes passionately in the importance of children developing their own healthy self-care habits (from putting on shoes to potty-training) and works with children and their parents to encourage confidence.

The expansive garden benefits from a rich variety of outdoor activities, including gardening, growing vegetables, waterplay, climbing frame, trampoline and small trikes. The garden’s patio is sheltered, so that children can benefit from outdoor play all year round.

The Child Experience at Ros' tiney home nursery.

At Ros' tiney home nursery your child will regularly attend local playgroups, park picnics and visits to Pets At Home.

They will experience regular playdates with other children in approved home nursery settings to experience playing in larger groups of children. The trips to Deen City Farm are a particular favourite!
