Hi, my name is Sonia, and I am a newly registered childminder with OFSTED to care for up to 6 children, from newborn to 8 years old. I comply with all requirements relevant to Childminders as outlined by OFSTED. I live in the Windsor area with my husband, and 3 children. We are originally from Portugal, but have been living in the UK since 1999 ! We also share our home with ‘Toshi’ our friendly and fluffy Shiba-Inu puppy. Although she does have a cage to ensure healthy interactions with children are maintained. I am currently only able to provide drop-off/ collection services for children attending Clewer Green School in Windsor.
The childcare setting I am working in is my family home, which is a four bedroom house with a secure back garden and a dedicated heated play area cabin full of fun and useful resources for a range of ages. This is where the majority of activities will take place as well as in my spacious front room.
I aim to provide quality childcare through implementing a child-centred approach in a warm, safe and friendly setting. I hope this will enable the child to fulfill their potential within a family atmosphere where they feel valued, can play, develop and learn. I will ensure each child has the opportunity to take part in activities which will teach them new things, support them in their learning and also encourage them to develop new skills. Every child will be considered individually, taking into account specific characteristics, abilities and needs. As I understand that parents are the most important people in a child’s life, I will consult with parents on all aspects of their child’s care.
My experience with children comes from my own three, who are now 25,19 and 12 years old as well as through being a nanny and a babysitter for the last five years.

Sonia has babysat all three of our daughters (10, 8 & 2). She has been very reliable. Listening and acting on advice given in respect to each child. She is comfortable with the kids, probably due to the fact that she has her own, and is therefore experienced!
