About Me

During the Corona Virus outbreak, I have spaces for Key Worker’s Children.

My name is Parthenopi Yiasoumi (but everyone calls me Bobby). I am an Ofsted Registered Childminder and I live with my partner, son and our rescue cat Pepsi in Hertord. I offer services as a full time Childminder. My home is only 10 minutes walk from Hertford North Train Station.

I have a variety of fun resources, toys and equipment (Such as Toy Cars, Farm Animal Toys, Food Play Sets, Multi Cultural Dolls, Duplo and construction toys, a sandpit and Creative and Craft Materials).

I have a lot of Montessori experience and a good understanding of the EYFS. With this knowledge I aim to promote a fun educational environment that helps each child reach their full potential. I am an English Born Greek Cypriot and I also teach the children in my care basic Greek if this is something that they would enjoy learning.

Aside from the above I am also a Creative, Artistic person and love to do Arts and Crafts projects with the children.

As part of my service I provide a nutritious balanced Breakfast, Lunch and Afternoon Tea.

Bobby has been great with our little one! She helped with everything we needed and made transition from our home to hers as smooth as possible. She saved the day when we were struggling to find childcare that would work for us and our boy. Our boy has loved going to her. Bobby is kind, caring and a calm presence! Unfortunately, we have to say goodbye due to changes in our work commitments, but we couldn’t recommend Bobby more!

Bobby has been childminding my son R (3 year) since Jan 2018. She looks after him for 4 days each week.
I have been happy with the care R has received, and the progress he has made whilst in Bobby’s care. Bobbys’s home is always welcoming, clean and well organised . Bobby has no trouble in gaining R’s confidence and therefore encouraging good behaviour and kindness and compassion to others, both skills which are important to us at home. When R steps outside his boundaries, she responds with firm but kind discipline explaining what we would like to see in terms which he understands. In particular, Bobby has been really supported R to start writing, learn the alphabet, numbers to prepare for Reception.
All in all I am happy with the level of care R receives and I’m certain that being in such a positive and happy environment is helping him develop into a confident and self-assured little boy.
I would absolutely recommend Bobby as a skilled early years educator and reliable childminder.

Bobby has been amazing with Ariana and so happy I have found her from this site. She is very caring, her house is clean and felt like my little one was moving from home to home. Since she has been with Bobby, the words have improved and now understands sharing a bit more. I didn’t feel comfortable with putting her in a nursery yet so it was ideal with Bobby as it’s a small group and my baby gets looked after really well. Thank you Bobby

Bobby is a fantastic find! We were recommended her from a neighbour who's little boy Bobby looked after.
After an initial visit to Bobbys home, she made us feel welcome and relaxed and more importantly our son was extremely happy to be there and took to Bobby straight away.
Our son settled in to Bobbys setting easily and eats and sleeps well and loves the variety of activities he does during his time with Bobby.
Our son loves it that much he doesn't seem too interested in coming home when we go to collect him!!
Couldn't recommend her enough.

Our daughter was 2.5yrs when she started with Bobby so was quite timid due to the new environment but she settled swiftly and adored the routine and structure of the day. Within a week or two Bobby was mirroring her normal routine and she was really settled.
Bobby is really attentive to supporting their learning and takes time every day to help support them with new skills and information. Her setting is great for young children and caters well for babies and toddlers alike. I’d 100% recommend her to anyone looking for childcare in the area.
