About Me

Hi, my name is Maria and I am an Outstanding Ofsted registered childminder based on kingshill offering full or part time care for children from as little as 4 months. I also provide before and after school childcare; dropping off and picking up from Discovery school.

I have been living on kingshill for 7 years now with my husband and two children aged 7 and 5. I’ve been childminding for 3 years now and built great relationships with current and past families I care for.

Being a parent myself I understand how important it is to find good quality childcare that both you as a parent and your child are happy with.
I offer a home from home, safe and welcoming environment with lots of toys and fun activities to stimulate the children and encourage them to grow into confident and happy individuals. I provide lots of opportunities for the children to socialise, we regularly attend baby and toddler groups, meet up with other local childminders and attend many play dates. We are Outdoors whenever we can be and take full advantage of what’s on offer on our doorstep from the park next door to Leeds castle and Kent life. Whatever we get up to each day I ensure the children are happy, safe and learning along the way.

I maintain communication with parents on a daily basis with an app called baby’s days and also lots of pictures via what’s app.

I am pleased to say that I can accept childcare vouchers but may need to register with your specific company.

If you would like to know more or to arrange a visit to my setting please contact me and I will be happy to discuss your requirements and any questions you may have. I look forward to speaking with you soon.

My Experience

I have been a mum for 7 years now and have learnt plenty along the way! The most important thing I have learnt is every child is different and will learn and grow at their own pace.

Last September I had an inspection from ofsted and I achieved an outstanding grade. A copy of my report is available online to view.

I have now been childminding for three years now.

Below are the latest reviews for Maria. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.

I do not even know where to begin with this review because Maria was that wonderful. I cannot recommend her enough. Maria was the first childminder I have ever had to use and we were so blessed with the amazing care and love she provided to my daughter whilst I worked part time as a Paediatrician. As a working doctor my rota can be brutal but Maria was always understanding. I never once worried about my baby when she was with Maria.
The only reason we are not still with Maria is that we have moved to Nottingham and funny enough Maria and her family would not move with us!!
She provides regular updates and photos during the day, fun activities and days out for the children. Her home is welcoming and very family friendly that my daughter felt like one of the family there.
We will miss Maria and her family and hope to find a new childminder as half as wonderful as she is.
