A Little Bit
We are a friendly and vibrant family who have a passion for working with children and contributing to their development and witnessing them grow, excel and flourish.
Our names are Princess and Antonio. We are the owners of Tooties Daycare. We are a bilingual family-run daycare business in the heart of Furzdown, South West London. We have one child of our own; a son who is four years old.
We are a friendly and vibrant family who have a passion for working with children and contributing to their development and witnessing them grow, excel and flourish. We are open-minded and flexible and ensure we undertake relevantly and up to date training courses to enhance our personal and professional development and use the knowledge gained to benefit our setting and the progress of the children. We are big believers in encouraging children to become independent and develop their self-esteem.
Our vision is providing a service for the local community so parents can feel assured that their children are well looked after in a caring and structured environment.
Princess has Jamaican Heritage. She has worked in education and the design Industry for over 16 years. She has been a qualified teacher since 2000 and has experience working with children between the ages of 0 and 18 in a variety of settings including schools, colleges and universities. In schools she has worked with small groups of children, building relationships with them and being sensitive to their needs. She has excellent communication skills, is flexible and adaptable; these characteristics ensure that she can work well with both children and adults. Princess has looked after and worked with many children, including those with Special Educational Needs.
Antonio is Italian and has worked in the hospitality sector for over 30 years working in high-end hospitality businesses. As a professionally trained chef, he will be able to prepare freshly cooked food every day using seasonal produce, avoiding the already made meal and over-processed food. This will ensure all children attending daycare receive highly nutritional meals and snacks.

Have To Say...
"I was drawn to Princess’s friendly and warm personality and impressed by her willingness to contribute to the group especially when she stepped in to lead the nursery rhyme singing sessions.
When I have visited Princess’s home I have seen how well resourced it is for the provision of Early Years care and how well Princess provides a large variety of activities especially crafts and reading stories aloud. The children in my setting loved play dates with Princess and Julio out of lockdown. She is very creative and enthusiastic. I wish her all the best in her career in Early Years."
