Hello, my name is Natalia, I live in Frimley with my husband and our three boys, 12, 10 and 3 years old. I am an Ofsted registered childminder. I became a childminder because I wanted to spend more time with my own boys and I really enjoy looking after children and watching them develop and grow.
Originally I am from Russia.

Natalia has been childminding my son since November. She looks after my son 2 days a week .
I am extremely happy with the care that my boy receives, and the great progress he had made whiles in her care.
Natalia's home is always welcoming and my son had great fun playing with all the toys available and with the other children in her care.

Beyond all this thought , it is Natalia's warm and friendly but no nonsense approach with sets her apart from other childminders .

She provides a wide, fun range of activities including plenty of outdoor exercise. I know my son enjoyed drawing, sticking, reading and puzzles as well as outings to the park and playgroups, soft plays and many more .

Natalia is a great communicator and she is encouraging good behaviour and kindness and compassion to others , both skills which are important to us at home.

Although I provided food I know that Natalia was providing healthy snacks such as fruit and milk.

All in all I am thoroughly extremely happy with level of care my son receives.
I am certain that being in such a positive and happy environment is helping my son develop into a confident boy .

I would absolutely recommend Natalia as a Great, Trustworthy, Reliable Childminder

My 11 yr old son was looked after by Natalia after school every school day since March 2017 and has really enjoyed it.
It is sometimes hard finding a childminder for an older child but with Natalia's sons going to the same school and being a similar age it was the perfect setting choice.
My son was never at a loss for something to do, someone to talk to or someone to play with whilst being looked after, and always came home happy and full of excitement after a good afternoons play.
Natalia is very kind and calm and cared for my son very well making sure he was well fed and watered after a busy day at school.
Natalia offers a good range of things to do at her setting, the computer games were one of his favourites and it was great for him to have the boys to play these with as he is only able to play them on his own at home.
Natalia is very flexible and has been great in accommodating lots of last minute changes in childcare when i've needed it. She is really great at juggling after school pick ups and after school club pick ups at different times and is again great at accommodating the changes each term when the kids decide to change their after school club choice!.
My son has unfortunately had to leave Natalia's setting as we have recently moved out of the county, but if we were still living in Frimley I would have loved him to have continued in her care until he was old enough to no longer required a childminder.
I would recommend Natalia's childminding services to anyone, such a lovely family setting brilliantly located close to local schools.

I've used Natalia for childminding services for a few weeks now and she has been brilliant. She is highly reliable, very punctual and has been very accommodating when I have asked for extended hours.

My son always returns full of smiles and brings home lots of craft projects that they have undertaken together.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Natalia.
