About Me


My name is Carol, I am an Ofsted registered childminder based in South Croydon. I curently have childcare places available for immediete start my daily rate for children is £65 per day.

I am great with children and young babies providing a secure and caring environment for them and have a beautiful, spacious home with a specially designed indoor playroom and a very large garden area where your child will be able to spend many fun an creative hours. In the garden we have little explorer games, Teddy Bear Picnics or planting in our vegetable patch or mark making in the outdoor blackboard area.   I am fully qualified and provide quality care in a home from hiome based setting. I prepare healthy and nutritious meals and snacks for the children all home cooked on the premises . I also attend weekly local playgroups such as Library "Rhyme time" sessions and other local playgroup activities these sessions allow baby/child to engage in sensory play with other toddlers which aids their social development.

Carol's setting is spacious and well equipped. But more importantly, the level of care she gives is wonderful. I'm particularly happy knowing the learning and development needs of my daughter are taken care of.

I happily and highly recommend her to anyone who wants a caring and nurturing place for their little hunny!

by about Carol on 24/01/2020

Carol has been amazing helping us settle our 2 children (1yrs & 3yrs) into tiny treasures. This is our first time using a childminder and we are pleased we made the transition from a nursery setting. They are both really happy and I know this because their behaviour hasn’t changed plus my 3 yr old tells me he likes it there. It’s a home from home, they adore carols 2 daughters, eat well and have free run of the great play area indoors and out. It has also allowed the flexibility to keep our son attending his local preschool which was important to us and he really likes it when Carol is picking him up. He says he likes her big car with lots of seats! Carol is caring, attentive to their needs, excellent at communicating and being a working mother herself she can relate and has really made us feel at ease. We are happy we chose tiny treasures!
