I am a 38yrs old; fun, caring and very active Ofsted Registered Childminder; I living with my teenage daughter and have been childminding since January 2010. I am enjoying my days looking after the little ones and care for them as they are my own.
My experience are looking after children of my families, friends and my God children, also being a mother to my daughter. My love for children and friendly personality makes us bond in no time. Children are happy in my care, this makes me happy and enjoy working with them.
I encourage areas of learning development and incorporate those key skills into my everyday activities as well as giving extra support to each child individual needs. Most importantly is for children to be SAFE, HAPPY and to ENJOY their time spending in my care.
I offer a flexible service, working with full time and part time little ones, being supported by my assistants.
I am located in Nunhead/Peckham Rye, only few minutes walk from the Peckham Rye Train Station.
I am registered on the Free Early Education and Childcare Scheme.

I look forward hearing from you.
I have 10yrs experiences in childcare. Caring for children age 8mths - 11yrs, also being a mother to my teenage daughter have given me the experiences and capabilities required taking care of your child/children. I am fun, active, trustworthy and a reliable person, that will take care of your child as he's/she's my own.

My son started with Ramona when he was about 11 months old and I went back to work part-time. The settling in period was really well managed - both for my son and for me! Ramona was so reassuring and helped settle my nerves, and I felt confident about leaving him in her care.
Since then my son has flourished with Ramona and her assistants. Usually he can’t wait to get there in the mornings and enjoys all of the activities, especially the trampoline, singing at circle time and playing outside in the big cars. He has really positive attachments with Ramona and the other staff, and has made lovely friendships with the other children. It is such a caring environment, with lots of laughter and affection. I always trust he is well looked after.
Ramona and her team put so much effort into the setting, including celebrating birthdays and seasonal events, involving the parents as much as possible. During lockdown she hosted Zoom gatherings for the families, which helped us stay connected even though our son missed his friends. This helped him adjust back to the setting when lockdown ended. Communication between Ramona and parents is well organised, with weekly diaries, newsletters and Whatsapp messages.
The setting is always bright and very clean, with an amazing variety of resources and healthy meals. My son is always telling us about Ramona’s house and what they’ve been getting up to. We highly recommend Ramona to any other family in the area.
My daughter and son started with Ramona and was there for some time. My daughter who is 10 years old, started when she was 2 years old. She was there for a short time while my son who is now 4years started when he was 1year old. My son stayed full time with Ramona and made a lot more progress than my daughter because of the short time she was there. I was so happy with the progress they both had made especially my son. My son loved being at Ramona and looked forward going each morning. He's now at Nursery and still asks if he could go Mona 😃. I do sometimes pass by to say hello. I was happy he was comfortable and made new friends. Staff are very child friendly, patient, caring and the atmosphere is great. Theres so many educational equipment that children can get there hands on, surrounding is very clean, she offers great service and I definitely recommend.
Ramona has looked after my 2 sons about 8 years ago when they were 8 months and 3 yrs old respectively.
Ramona has created an amazing bond with the boys and I. She was caring and loving and fun.
She has left an incredible mark in our lives, the boys are now 10 and 12 ( almost 13 yrs old ), and still asking to go to aunties Mona House. Thats when you know how good someone really is ,that after all these years they still want to go and see auntie Mona.
I recommend Romona without a shadow of a doubt. She will make you and you child/ren feel special and welcomed .
Ramona is definitely the ONE to look after your little one.
Wishing you all the very Best ,Mona.
P.S the house has ALWAYS kept clean and safe , and she is also a great cook 😊
We love you, Mona.
I feel very lucky to have found such a good childminder. My daughter has been with Ramona for the last 7 months and has been very happy since day one. Ramona is naturally caring and nurturing. Knowing that my child is being well cared for and having lots of fun whilst I am at work really puts my mind at ease. Ramona is understanding and has been flexible and accommodating when my working hours have changed. She works hard to ensure that each child’s individual needs are being met, with daily updates on their progress and making extra efforts for special occasions such as birthdays and Christmas.
I would highly recommend Ramona and her assistants for their childcare service, it is a real home from home where your child is guaranteed to settle in quickly and flourish! Thank you Ramona 🙏

Thank you so much Amy! I enjoy having your daughter in my care, she has made such great progress in her PD & CL always smiling and shows willingness to partake. I am looking forward to seeing her making great achievements in the new terms ahead.
Love you guys
Ramona is great. Lovely and caring, my daughter has thrived with her. Ramona provides the right environment for learning academically and emotionally.
She comes home having learnt something new everyday and from very early on has been able to remember some of the numbers and alphabet.
Ramona provides a nurturing safe environment for the children to grow in confidence and abilities. The energy and positivity that she radiates can be felt in the setting seeing how happy and at ease the children are under her care and with each other.
She puts a lot of care into celebrating special occasions which is so nice, birthdays, Xmas, Halloween, arranging parties and giving presents to the children to mark many occasions.
The setting is nice and clean. Ramona continuously strives to improve it redecorating and bringing in new toys.
We are very happy to see how happy and confident our daughter is growing to be and are very happy to have found Ramona who has greatly contributed to that.
