About Me

My name is Alicja, an Ofsted registered childminder.
What I offer:
Home based childcare from my three bedroom house in Kensal Rise.

Full time, part time and after school care. School drop off and pick up (Princess Frederica CE VA Primary School).

My home is clean, safe and friendly, with lots of age-appropriate toys.

Activities available include: puzzles,blocks, books,play dough, cooking, musical instruments, rhymes & songs, painting, drawing, baby toys and many more.

I also arrange age-appropriate educational activities following statutory framework for the early years foundation stage (EYFS) to help develop all skills from a young age.

I believe that young children benefit physically and emotionally from social environment therefore I attend local drops in's and make the best use of our community: parks, libraries, play centres & museums.

I provide fresh healthy homemade hot meals and have a weekly menu available for review. I can cater for specific dietary requirements. Parents are also welcome to bring their own food.

I have a quiet room for the children to take their naps during the day.

In my private life I am a mum to three lovely children (13,10,8).

My house is located directly in front of Princess Frederica CE VA Primary School.

Our daughter has been going to Alicja's setting for almost 3 years - since she was only 8 month old! Alicja and her team provide with the best care a parent can possibly imagine, from a warm and cosy setting full of toys, to home-made food and most importantly, an environment full of love. Alicja has an impressive background in childcare and her expertise is manifested in the way she plans all the daily activities, her approach to stimulate learning through play and her genuine passion and dedication. We consider Alicja part of our family and we will always be grateful for her invaluable help with the development of our child.

Alicja is a fantastic childminder. She consistently goes above and beyond to help our children and us. Her relationship with our children is like that of an aunt, who is focused on their wellbeing and education, in a warm and homely setting. We are delighted to have found her.

Alicja is absolutely amazing - so loving, gentle, competent and knowlegable as a childminder, and a lovely, warm person. She has an intuitive way of interacting with children to bring out their best and make them feel welcomed and loved. She is very forward thinking with craft activities, educational activities and regular trips out to parks and libraries, so both my children have benefited hugely and flourished in her care. I feel completely confident in her capabilities and couldn't imagine a better environment for my little ones.
My boy (aged nearly 2) has being going to her for nearly a year - he's had various problems with failure to thrive and allergies, and she has been consistently patient and careful with him, so much so that she is now the best person at getting him to eat (he's still pretty tricky at home!). He loves her food and she always caters for his needs in an exceptionally caring and effective way.
My 4 year old has been going also after school - she loves it too, and has had a fabulous time making cupcakes, glitter pictures, practising reading and writing, and playing with Alicja's own charming children.
Alicja is amazing at giving all the children age appropriate activities and ensuring all children are included at all times. She has 3 wonderful (older) children of her own, all of whom are absolutely charming with the little kids, and hugely enrich their time at her house - all are like little "mini mentors", helping with play and interacting such a sweet, gentle way with the children. Her home is welcoming, warm and safe - just the environment you want to leave your kids in knowing they are happy and having a great time while you go to work! I would wholeheartedly recommend her.

Firstly we would very much like to thank Alicja for being such an incredibly warm person, and for looking after my daughter for more than one year .

I was in fact very anxious about returning to my job as unfortunately my daughter didn’t settle well in nursery settings . I also didn’t have much time to find any substitute childcare. A friend of mine strongly recommended her and we went next day for an interview .

Our daughter got along well with Alicja on the very first day . My mother's intuition therefore told me that this was precisely the right place to leave my daughter .

Alicja is a wonderful person with a good heart, and has looked after my daughter with incredible patience and love . She arranged lots of different activities to stimulate her, as well as taking her to a play group. Her house is amazing, and enables children to settle very well, as it is arranged in the form of a little nursery with a wide variety of different toys . Alicja's own children are lovely too, and they so much enjoyed playing with my daughter.

Alicja is very flexible and helpful, and indeed sometimes also cared cared for my son, who was begging to come to her the next day . Everyone loves Alicja, and she has even brought me chicken soup to my home when she was bringing my daughter back , as she knew that I hadn’t cooked that day.

We are therefore very grateful to Alicja, and we have been so lucky to find a person like her. We will forever hold her in our hearts and in our memory . We intend keeping in touch with her, as we love her very much like family.

Our son has been going to Alicja’s after school since September and we couldn’t be happier.
He is 4 years old so we have had experience of various childcare settings over the years and feel very lucky to have found her.
She is reliable, professional and a very warm and friendly person and my son settled in immediately with no problems.
We totally trust her and she makes delicious food for all the children and is a wonderful mother herself to 3 lovely children.
We would highly recommend her as a childminder.
