About Me

Hi, my name is Ewa and I am a Ofsted Registered Childminder. I live in Coleview (Oakley Park) with my husband and our son in a four bedroom house with garden, which is equipped with all the necessary safety adaptations for toddlers and young children. Lots of natural and real items for the children to explore. I constantly access training sessions to ensure my care knowledge is up to date and continue my professional development.
I aim to work in partnership with parents to provide all children in my care a clean, safe, loving, homelike environment where everyone feels valued.
Respect towards self, others, and the environment will be emphasised and modelled in every thing we do.
I provide pick ups and drop offs :Holy Family Primary School, Nythe Primary School, Nythe Pre- School, Colebrook Junior School.

My Experience

OFSTED Inspection Report: 14 February 2018
Inspection findings:

Effectiveness of the leadership and management is good.

The childminder evaluates the service she provides. She involves parents in this process to identify areas where she can improve further. For example, she has identified that she would like to extend her knowledge in supporting children who have special educational needs (SEN) and/or disabilities. The childminder tracks the progress of children's achievements to help her to identify any gaps in their learning. She knows how to seek help from other relevant professionals, if necessary, to help ensure that all children make good progress. Safeguarding is effective. The childminder keeps her knowledge of this area up to date. For instance, she has recently undertaken further training relating to child protection. She has a secure understanding of how to recognise when a child is at risk and what to do if she has any concerns. The childminder assesses her home regularly and minimises hazards to ensure that children can play safely in her care.

Quality of teaching, learning and assessment is good.

The childminder has a good understanding of how to support children's learning, for example, by playing alongside them and helping them to explore. Children welcome the childminder's involvement in their play. The childminder keeps parents regularly informed about their children's learning and development. For example, she shares information effectively through daily contact sheets and regular progress reports, and she gives parents ideas for activities at home. This supports good continuity in children's experiences. The childminder supports younger children's communication and language skills well. For example, she ensures they have eye contact with her, responds well to their vocalisations and models language to help children to make good progress.
Personal development, behaviour and welfare are good.
The childminder supports non-mobile babies well to develop their physical skills. For example, they are supported with time on the floor to learn to roll, crawl and shuffle. The childminder supports babies to develop good independence skills, such as learning to hold beakers and drink from open cups. The childminder helps children to understand about their personal safety. For example, she provides parents with story books to read at home to help children to learn about keeping themselves safe when using the internet.

Outcomes for children are good.

Young children engage in play for long periods in activities that interest them, such as banging objects together and placing them in baskets. They enjoy exploring musical resources and they press buttons and keys to produce noises. Young children develop skills to support their early literacy. For instance, they curiously explore books, turning the pages with interest. Children benefit from their time with the childminder. They learn valuable skills to prepare them for future learning and in readiness for school.

Reviews

Below are the latest reviews for Ewa. 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.

When my son was 9 months old, we started working with Ewa. Ewa's approach to the child and his reaction were very important to us. Our son started to play with a smile and look at Ewa. It was good for us a sign that he is in good hands. Now that he is 18 months old, we can see what progress he has made. Time at Ewa's is very valuable and important for playing, learning, going to the park to the museum or showing how a child can do beautifully.
Ewa is a suitable, responsible, sympathetic, cultured, kind, friendly teacher to work with children. I recommend Ewa with full responsibility for cooperation with children and parents. Looking at my son, I can see how much work, patience and learning she has taught him. It is also important that the son goes to Ewa with a smile and comes back to us with a smile.

Our daughter has been with Ewa for 4 months now, but we knew after 5 minutes with Ewa that we had made the best decision.
Despite showing great progress in a nursery setting, our daughter has come on leaps and bounds with her development with Ewa. Her ability to turn every moment into an opportunity to learn and create, helps Ewa stand out above anyone else, and inspires us to be better parents ourselves.
Ewa's hard work and belief in young children is reflected by her own child, who is a fantastic role model for other children.
This setting is recommended by me to anybody with children, young or old, and at any stage of development.
Ewa is more than a childminder. She's a support system, a teacher, a friend and the first person on this planet we would choose to care for our child.

Our son is with Ewa since March this year, and we can't recommend her highly enough! As all parents we were worried how our son will settle in, but there were no problems at all. We are impressed of how well she looks after children, how many different activities they do each day. Our son is baking, going to the park, library, local farm and many, many more. He always comes home happy and is looking forward to going back. We have lots of support from Ewa; she provides daily feedback of how the day was spent and lovely pictures showing what they did together.
Ewa is very approachable, always happy and welcoming person. I regret that we didn't know her when our older child was in the childcare.

My son is now 8 months and has been with Ewa for just over a month. We are so lucky to have such an amazing child minder. He always comes home really happy. He has busy days and is sleeping really well at night now. If I ever have any worries Ewa is very supportive and always has time to answer any questions. When we first met, Ewa was really welcoming and made me feel really confident to leave Joshua with her. The setting is amazing! Really clean and tidy and such a fantastic space for children to explore. The garden is lovely with lots of things to play with! Joshua has only just started eating but they explore with lots of fruit and vegetables. Ewa has given us a link book that comes home with him, we're able to see what he's been up to throughout the week. We really highly recommend Ewa. She is really approachable and really encourages Joshua to reach his next goal. He is now crawling and really interacts with the other children. We're so grateful for such a wonderful lady! WE LOVE EWA!
