"We couldn’t be happier to have found Simona"
review of Simona V - Childminder in London Borough Of Barnet
We couldn’t be happier to have found Simona
We feel incredibly lucky to have found Simona when we did, our daughter was soon approaching her first birthday and my return to work from maternity leave was looming. After a year of the world standing still because of Covid I hadn’t left my daughter for longer than two hours so as a first time Mum I was feeling very anxious about organising her childcare.
Simona invited us round to her house to chat and to meet Nina and as soon as I met her at her front door my gut instinct was that I could trust her to look after my daughter implicitly. She has a warmth and kindness that radiates from her and my daughter was transfixed. It was meant to be.
As a first time Mum I struggled leaving my daughter at first but Simona was an incredible support, what became evident was how happy my daughter was with Simona and the other children and she still beams and giggles when we ring Simona's bell at the start of the day (Nina has been going to Simona’s for three months now).
Simona really looks after your children as if they were her own and I don’t think you can ask for more than that. It is a kind, nurturing and stimulating setting for a child. Simona’s house is beautiful and clean and she is always coming up with new activities for the children.
What was very special for us was Simona organised a birthday party for Ninas first birthday and she came home happy with beautiful home made cards from all the children. So it feels more than a child care setting and much like an extended family.
Simona is excellent at her job and her heart is in everything. She really listens to you and caters for everything and anything.
They say it takes a village to raise a child so I am incredibly grateful to have Simona on my team.
