About Me

Ofsted registered childminder in Twickenham, I offer a friendly, caring and stimulating home environment.

Pick ups from Stanley Primary school.

I am 43 years old and have three children, my youngest is 4 years old.

I love spending time with children - playing, having picnics, going on various outings for social interaction, music groups, experiencing nature and culture, reading, baking, doing crafts, yoga, Spanish, dressing up, painting and much more. We are close to Twickenham Green, Crane park, Strawberry Hill House and Bushy Park, and we endeavour to play outside every day.

I plan educational activities based on the needs, age and stage of each individual child, and provide resources to support your child's learning according to the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework. The learning is centred around 7 areas: communication and language; physical development; personal, social and emotional development; literacy; mathematics; understanding the world; expressive arts and design.

After school and holiday play is all about having fun and incorporating children's interests.

My house is a welcoming home with a private garden, and resources being updated and adapted to suit each unique child's needs.

I have a low ratio of children, so can give more personal attention.

I grew up in Russia, got a degree in the UK and have lived here for 25 years. I am into health and wellness, wellbeing, personal development and life-long learning. I enjoy cooking home-made meals, involving the children when appropriate.

My setting is Home Education friendly.

Above all, my home is a warm, secure, nurturing environment where each child will be treated with care and respect.

My Experience

21+ years childcare experience. Mum of three, I have worked as a nanny, babysitter and now a childminder, and volunteered at playgroups and school.

Katya has been looking after my 7 year old daughter after school. I feel extremely confident with leaving Hanna in Katya's care. She is very warm and caring person and Hanna is always very happy to stay with her.
I couldn’t ask for a better childminder for my daughter.

Thank you Katya!

Thank you for your kind words!

All 3 of my girls have enjoyed spending time with Katya, she takes care of them as if they are her own. My youngest daughter who is 3 always comes home with so many exciting things to tell me about her day. Katya has always been very flexible with timings as I am a mobile hairdresser and have no set work times. I would highly recommend Katya and We are all so glad we found her.

Thank you for your kind words. I love the girls!

Im so glad we found Katya. My daughter has so much fun with her children and Katya provides really interesting, creative, things for them to do together. She loves the organic food Katya provides. For me, Katya provides a flexible service and is always willing to cater for my irregular hours. The girls have fun playing in the outside space too and Katya is good at planning day trips and outside activities.
