review of Valbona - Childminder in Surbiton
I had my son childminded with Valbona for 3 days a week this year from April to August. I looked around at a few childminders and found Valbona's setting to be just what I was looking for. She is very attentive with the children in her care and takes them to local playgroups and play sessions.
There is a variety of toys and childrens music playing so my son never got bored. Valbona has two daughters, 17 and 9 who enjoyed playing with my son. He always came home clean and no food on his clothes - I don't know how she does it!
At the end of each day Valbona would send a very descriptive email report of the day which included photos, my husband and I always enjoyed reading what he'd been up to.
Although Valbona does not provide lunch, I found this to work better for me as I could provide food that I know will be eaten and correct quantities. Fruit was always provided by Valbona.
I would not hesitate to recommend Valbona to anybody looking for a registered childminder. The location is so handy for Surbiton train station too. My son loved his time with Valbona and although I have now finished work, I will still use Valbona whenever I need childminding again in the future - thats if she has any spaces left!
