About Me

Welcome to Sweet Pea's Tiney Home Nursery.

My name is Libby and I run a childminding business with my mum, Angie in KT6 (3 minute walk from Tolworth Infants school & 5 minutes from both Surbiton and Tolworth train stations). After having a little girl of my own and constantly asking my mum for support with childcare while I worked, we felt that running a family business to look after our own and other children in the area was something we were keen to move forward with.

We work with and have full support from a childminding agency

The benefits of working with an agency is that we are inspected annually. The agency also offer 5 days emergency cover per year should you ever need it. This means you will never be left stranded with no childcare on an emergency basis. We are also put on annual training to ensure our Ofsted standards are OUTSTANDING at all times.

We communicate through a private App which only our parents have access to. Parents would receive daily updates/pictures/observations. We love this option as I know personally how it feels to leave your little ones for the day while you work.

We have transformed our home into a mini nursery and offer a calm, homely environment so we can provide a more one to one service. Weekly activities would include, trips to the park, messy play, play groups, softplay, cooking, reading and general early years learning.

We love animals at our setting and are very ‘pro’ nature. We enjoy regular trips to the zoo and farms. We also love a good bug hunt in the garden and lots of messy play with our mud kitchen!

My Experience

Angie has been working for the past 25 years in Kingston Hospital as a staff nurse which involved caring for children. I have my own child and also 3 years previous childminding experience along with 9 years of a professional background.

My Qualifications

EYFS certificate, First Aid trained with certificates, Food Hygiene certificates including fussy eaters, FGM certificate, DBS checked. 25 years of NHS service which includes childcare for Kingston Hospital. Full Safe Guarding training with certificates.

If you're looking for a caring and nurturing environment for your child, look no further! Libby and Angie are the loveliest, most caring and kind ladies and I am so pleased they are taking care of my daughter.

Being a first time parent, I was dreading finding a childminder for my daughter. However, meeting Libby and Angie instantly put my mind at ease and I knew right away I wanted them to look after my child.

The setting is cosy, clean and welcoming. My daughter loves going there and I love how relaxed she is with Libby and Angie. There are lots of stimulating activities, outings, educational toys and even pets (2 cats and a doggy)!

I get regular updates with photos on my daughter's activities thorughout the day which I love and find reasurring.

My daughter has lots of food allergies which makes it hard to cater to her sometimes but Libby and Angie always go the extra mile and make somthing yummy and nutritious for her.

I couldn't be happier with my daughter's care and I warmly recommend Libby and Angie to anyone looking for something special for their child.

Libby and Angie have created the most wonderful, idyllic setting. My son loves it, and we love it too! The moment we met Angie and Libby, we felt so at ease and confident with them- and my son did too! My 16 month old boy soon went from being a clingy child to forgetting to say goodbye to us and running straight to Angie or Libby.
They have created a space where my son can be free to express himself, be creative, feel safe, loved and cared for. Nothing is to much for the ladies.

Just by seeing the smiles after a day with Angie and Libby, says to me he has had a wonderful day being cared for by two professional, passionate, attentive and generous people.

Communication throughout the day is fantastic and I love seeing the pictures of my sons day of adventures.

I couldn’t be more thankful for the love and care you have shown to my son and to us as first time parents.
Angie and Libby are fantastic at what they do!

We can’t thank you enough!

Our son smiles as soon as he sees Angie and Libby! From the first time we met, I instantly felt at ease with them and they showed genuine warmth and interest in my little one. Angie babysits for us at her home setting which is sparkling clean and welcoming.
Sadly, location doesn’t allow for us to leave our son for weekly childminding, but we have nothing but positive things to say about Libby and Angie.
