It is simple – I like to be around children. They astonish me with their unique behavior and reactions to the world around them.
I, curiously, step into their world of thinking and elaborating their own ways. I like to help them with a little hint here and there and admire where their imagination leads; just assist them to become themselves.
I love all sorts of activities – indoor and outside, active and creative; every day chores made fun and a surprise in a plain box...
I believe that intellectual, physical, psychological and emotional development of a child should be nurtured form “day one” by careful observations and deference for every child’s request. As an adult I have an important role of spotting a right moment and take action in accurate way for each child.
I have specially arranged setting to welcome all children with plenty of safe space and two gardens. My place is next to the woods and in a quiet "cul de sac" with no cars passing by.
I work with my husband and he is a soft and caring person. We believe to complement each other at our everyday task to make your children happy and healthy.
I have been working as a childminder for some time now. Previously, I have been successfully running Russian speaking group in Leeds "Skazka" for three years for children 1,5 years to 6 years old. On Saturdays I run a voluntary club for Russian speaking children and I teach them Russian language. I also speak fluent Italian and this is another language that is present in our house. I have been looking after numerous children of different ages for my friends privately, besides growing our own fabulous daughter who us 11 now.

We sent our baby to Yulia full time from 9 months old and could not be more grateful to her for the way she took care of him and settled him in quickly. She was very good at understanding his needs and managed to get him sleeping (which is not easy!) and supported him to explore and play. He is always excited arriving at her setting. Her and her husband took care of children from a range of ages and kept them all entertained and interacting and learning from each other. Yulia really has a gift with children. She is extremely honest and trustworthy and kept us constantly updated on our baby.
Oli really enjoyed his time with you and we are so happy he had the opportunity to learn and play in such a lovely environment. We would really recommend you to anyone looking for really good childcare.
Our son attended Yulia's setting for a few months and he would jump off his bed to go to 'Yuyia's house' and see his friends. He learnt so many things like songs, counting, alphabet etc., and also really good manners and routines.
Thank you, Yulia.
There are so many qualities about yulia that there is enough space to write them all. My little boy has only been with her for a short time but in this short time his development has changed so much, she notices when a child is struggling with areas of development which helps me to help him.
My little boy took a while to settle in a morning, yulia would take him and soothe him and I knew when the pictures came through he was happy and having fun, now he’s running down the path to Yulia’s and doesn’t want to go home.
The setting is amazing with the different areas of play and the two outside areas. I cannot recommend yulia enough.
We love all the picture updates which are sent through out the day showing how happy the children are and all the adventures they are having
I am not sure where to start from. Firstly, before we chose Yulia, we visited many childminders and a) she has the best facilities (clean, open space, with two gardens, very good variety of toys), b) she didn't try to push us to go with her, instead she explained her "style" in childminding and she asked us many questions about our DD (9-month-old) and about our style in parenting.
Now our daughter is with Yulia for about a month and we are very satisfied with her. Our DD seems very happy with her and with the other kids. I was very anxious in the beginning but Yulia managed our daughter in a brilliant way. They go out everyday, she sends me pictures of their activities, she also follows our daughter's nap & food schedule and at the same time I trust her to take initiatives. Yulia seems absolutely responsible and reliable. Looking forward to the long journey ahead!
Response by Yulia on 14/10/2020:
Many thanks Nikoletta for your honest review, I also look forward to our long relationship.
All the best,
I am very happy with the help I received from Yulia. She is trustworthy, reliable, always polite and something I particularly value, she always replies to your messages without letting you wonder if everything is alright or not.
Her setup is amazing and my DD didn't want to leave to go home with me, she made me promise I will take her to Yulia again.
As a single mother with no family in England I feel relief knowing I can count on someone like Yulia to help me with my daughter.
