About Me

Butterflies & Dolphins Childminding by Barbara Marciniak.
I am an OFSTED registered childminder based in Mill Hill, NW7, that offers safe, reliable and flexible hours, starting from 7:30am to 6:30pm.
I am PACEY qualified with Level 3 Homebase Childcare Award (HBCA). I also hold a Paediatric First Aid Certificate. I have 3 of my own children (two toddlers and one baby) and live with my partner and mum that are both DBS checked and assist with the childminding. My partner works locally and he mostly helps after work and my mum stays around every day.
I am passionate for encouraging children's development and progress as they grow as well as keeping them safe. Working with children gives me the opportunity to unleash their potential while having fun and encouraging them to be well mannered, independent and confident in their lives.
I have lots of stimulating toys that let children use their imagination and be creative including puzzles, toddler's kitchen, dolls house, car garage, books, construction toys, musical toys and many more. I also provide educational activities that promote children's learning through play like drawing, painting or cutting. I have a Master Degree in Theory and Practice of Translation as well as a BA in International Economics.
The house I live in is secure, spacious and well suited for children, therefore, children are encouraged to play safely. I also have a large garden equipped with children's outdoor toys, including trampoline, outdoor slide, Wendy house and many cars and bikes, which provides children with plenty of physical activity.
I also do school pick ups/drop offs from local schools to NW7 2DD.
There is an open door for parents or carers willing to come and visit the childminding setting as well as meet myself and my family in person. This gives us the opportunity to talk about my qualifications and experience and discuss details on meals, fees, etc as well as find out how I drive the EYFS framework into action, including details on documenting children's daily activities and important medical and developmental information.

My Experience

Over the last 5 years I have worked closely with my own children and have obtained new qualifications on how to make sure children's welfare and development are prioritized in the early stages of their lives. I have been an Ofsted registered childminder since mid 2016 and I had also worked as a full time nanny for 3 years before I had my children and completed my BA and MA degree. Additionally, I have over ten years experience working as a data analyst, which sculpts my organizational skills.

I really want to thank Barbara for being such an amazing person and trying so hard to make it work for us. Unfortunately the school pick ups did not work out so we couldn't go with your settings. I loved your setting, such a lovely house filled with loads of toys and huge garden with lots of activities. I am sure any child would be happy and safe in your setting and on top of it you have such adorable children xx Good luck !
