About us

A Fine Mess is run by Master Messy Makers Tina & Helen

Tina has over 15 years working within the events industry in its many guises; starting in hospitality events sales to corporate events management, but had always loved looking after children so she decided to take the plunge and open her own childcare business when her youngest child was born. She is currently studying towards a diploma in Early Childhood, runs a successful childcare business in North London, as well as being one half of A Fine Mess UK.

Helen has over 13 years experience in the childcare sector, having trained and worked as a nanny, childminder and nursery assistant. She is also a qualified teaching assistant, has undertaken training to work with children with SEN and is currently working towards a degree in childhood & youth studies. In a previous life she worked in retail management and now she works in a local nursery supporting children with SEN. She is also a mum to three growing children.

Both Master Messy Makers have enhanced DBS clearances, Paediatric first aid certificates, Health and Safety training and Food Hygiene / Safety certificates, as well as over 20 years experience in childcare between them.
