My name is Parthenopi Yiasoumi (but everyone calls me Bobby). I am an Ofsted Registered Childminder. I had an Ofsted Inspection in May 2021 and I have been rated as 'Good In All Areas'.
I live with my husband, 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.

My 1 year old started with Bobby during the Covid pandemic so it was quite a challenging time for all. Bobby went above and beyond to settle our little girl with plenty of settle sessions and our little girl was relaxed and loved it from the start. Bobby is very gentle, kind and calm. She is also very professional. We have been extremely satisfied with the care she provides. Our little girl loves going - she has been learning lots and gets out and about for walks. The setting is very clean and the sleeping arrangements were a big plus for me over a nursery and as a result our little girl sleeps very well there. I know Bobby is extremely attentive to her needs and really supports her development - the language she has developed is amazing and I know she gets up to a range of activities both indoors and outdoors. She is always very happy at the end of the day with Bobby and always excited when we go there.
I cannot recommend Bobby as a child minder enough - your little ones will be in very good hands. She came highly recommended to us by a number of people and definitely did not disappoint. Unfortunately we are moving out of the area - we wish we could take Bobby with us because of the fantastic bond she has created with our little girl and the service she has provided us.
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.
