Hello, I’m Clare Raffet. After having worked at British Airways for 20 years; in April 2014, I became a fully qualified Ofsted registered Childminder. I have two Little Crumpets of my own, Paddy and Olivier who both attend St Mary’s Primary School.
After considering going back to work, I struggled to find the flexibility in childcare that I needed. Finding a comfortable and fun environment that emulated that home from home feeling, specifically for school aged children was hard to find….and from that Little Crumpets was born.
Little Crumpets is now in its sixth year of business and I am extremely proud of the service we offer to both our Little Crumpets and their families. Over the last couple of years, I have been at full capacity and I am now so pleased to be in the position to expand Little Crumpets and its offering to another Little Crumpet house; Lucinda – Brantwood Avenue where the same ethos, offering and care will be offered there too.
We’ve seen how difficult it is to juggle childcare, work and life in general. Our aim is to take the childcare worries off your hands, make your working life a lot easier and their after school care fun, enjoyable and memorable.
Hello! My name is Lucinda Nieddu. I am 37 and live in Brantwood Avenue, Isleworth. In Summer 2017, I became a fully qualified Ofsted registered Childminder. I have two Little Crumpets of my own, Della 5 and Vivie 3, both who attend The Blue School in Isleworth.
Having worked in the events industry for 15 years creating unique experiences for clients such as Virgin and Cocoa-Cola, I wanted to explore a new career which would still challenge me but would offer a better work/life balance.
It was then that I found Clare. I met with her to find out more about starting a business working with children. Little Crumpets felt like the perfect fit for my personality and skills. At Little Crumpets, we are able to create a fun and immersive environment for the children and provide them with special memories and moments.
It wasn’t until I had my own children that I realised how rewarding it would be working with kids. I have so much fun with them and enjoy watching them grow and develop. I am so happy to be part of the Little Crumpets family and look forward to being part of this exciting and magical adventure.

Hello my name is Cathryn Kielczyk.
I am 37 and live with my husband and two children in Napier Road, Isleworth.
Morgan, who is 7, attends Deer Park School and Ethan is 1.
I am a qualified Special Needs teacher, and have been educating and supporting children and adults since 2009.

This has led me to becoming a part of the wonderful Little Crumpets family. I was immediately inspired and connected with the delightful atmosphere that is shared within the Little Crumpets homes. I am very excited to be expanding this within our family home and welcoming children to share this with us.
At Little Crumpets we are able to provide children with a vibrant, exciting and creative atmosphere that offers the opportunity for children to build exciting and happy memories. I am passionate about nurturing the health and well being of children, as well as their own personal and emotional development. My values encourage healthy eating and leading active lifestyles,all of which can be shared within my Little Crumpets home.
