About Me


With nearly a decade of calling Chester my home, I'm thrilled to offer my services as a childminder. As a fellow mom to a wonderful toddler, I understand the importance of finding the right childcare.

My passion for children and their development has led me on this journey. I find immense joy in nurturing their growth and knowing I play a positive role in their lives.

I firmly believe in instilling good values from the start, guiding children to become their best selves.

I'm known for my passion, attention to detail, and constant pursuit of excellence. My dedication to early education extends beyond my role as a mom. I spent two enriching years in Shanghai, where I immersed myself in the culture and learned Chinese. Additionally, I have valuable experience teaching languages to children.

In my childcare setting, I create a Montessori-inspired environment, adhering to developmental guidelines. As a native Spanish speaker, I communicate with your little ones in Spanish. Additionally, I incorporate games and songs in other languages I'm proficient in, such as Chinese. I understand the immense benefits of introducing multilingualism early in a child's life.

My childcare journey is rooted in love, dedication, and a commitment to providing a multicultural and developmentally enriching environment for your precious ones.

My Experience

Coming from a large family, my childcare journey began by caring for my nieces and nephews from the day they were born. I've been babysitting since I was 16, gaining valuable experience over the years.

I came to England and work as an aupair for a British-Italian family with two children who were aged six weeks and 18 months at the time.

I also lived in Shanghai, china for two amazing years, where I cared and taught arts and languages to kids from 36 months up to 9 years old, as well as learnt their culture and language, passing with great results the HSK4 exams.

When the pandemic struck, I made a career shift and started working as a childminder. It was a fulfilling choice, and I continued this path even after having my own baby, who recently turned one. Now, I'm taking the steps and I have officially register as a childminder and opened Ole childminder

I am happy at work and enjoy seeing the children develop. I enjoy planning different activities with children including creative play, going outdoors for walks and singing songs.

I speak Spanish, Italian, Chinese (mandarin) and English fluently.

I have experience in planning and preparing healthy, balanced and nutritious children's meals and ensuring a good variety of foods throughout the weekly menu.

I am confident on setting activities Montessori inspired and STEAM, accordingly to the children’s personal development stage and age.

I find my role rewarding and satisfying when I receive reciprocal affection and love from the children I look after and when I see them develop healthy and happy.

Rocio looked after our two children full time when they were 18 months and 6 weeks old. She’s wonderful and talented with kids of all ages. She was a big support to me, helping me develop and structure my children’s routine taking into account mine and my husbands wishes. She also helped us successfully sleep train the little one. She plans age appropriate educational activities which promote child development. She ensures healthy eating, outdoor activities and lots of fun for the little ones. We miss a lot since we relocated.

My eldest used to go to the childminder where Rocio was working as an assistant. She always cared for every kid, ensuring they felt safe to be themselves. Rocio is a natural with kids and they love to be around her. My daughter always felt respected and listened to. So, when she said she was starting her own setting, I was sure my little boy would be cared by her.
The setting is lovely and clean. I love the multicultural environment she has created.
On a personal note, Rocio has been very supportive in the transition to childcare. I was feeling anxious about going back to work and separating from my baby, but she has been flexible and understanding with our needs all the time, without any judgment.
I can’t recommend her enough!
