Valy started looking after our son Alexander full time when he was barely 7 months old. Over the past 2 years, she proved to be an exceptional childminder and became a dear friend to our family.

Alexander adores Valy. He is very excited to welcome her in the morning and he can’t wait to see her again after our holiday. Valy keeps challenging herself and impressing us constantly by coming up with the new ideas for both fun and educational activities that Alexander loves. Reading books, tracing letters, dressing up, counting, messy play, feeding ducks, riding scooters, having picnics, visiting playgrounds, playgroups, libraries ... they are having lots of fun together :)

Valy is always there for us to offer advice and guide us through Alexander’s milestones which we’re very grateful for. She keeps us up to date with daily comments, photos and videos. Thanks to Valy’s attention and care, Alexander grew into a very confident, inquisitive boy and made good friends with girls that Valy looks after.

Valy’s setting is very welcoming, spotless and offers a wide range of toys and games that Alexander loves. The little ones always have lots of fun in her garden where they have a slide, a wooden house and a paddling pool(if weather permits). Valy is also a great cook. Her meals are cooked from scratch with fresh organic produce, exciting and nutritious. The weekly menu is always very well thought through. As a result, Alexander is a very happy eater :)

Thank you for being there for us Valy.

Aggy & Robert

Valy looked after our daughters from Feb 2018 to Aug 2019. She was absolutely great; she became a part of our family. The girls used to refuse to go home with me when I pick them up in the evening and I can understand why. She is loving and caring and they were having so much fun with her. With trips to playgroups, the park, the library, soft play and picnics...etc. When my eldest started reception, she used to get excited about half term because she will spend it with Valy.
Fun stuff aside, Valy is very good at setting rules and boundaries and teaching kids manners. She is also very proactive, helping with school learning or suggesting development areas. My youngest was not very interested in books but Valy persisted. She now loves them.
Valy will always have a special place in our family!

Valy looked after our 3 year old son for months. She has been perfect in every aspect; her professionalism leaves us with %100 confidence both about our son's childcare and her organization skills made sure they tried out as different activites as possible every day. And her lovely daughter has become best friends with our son!

Hoping to continue our relations next year when we have a definite schedule. Would recommend her for everyone!

Valy is an outstanding nanny and I know that she'll be an outstanding childminder. As our nanny (from July 2014 to April 2016) she was a loving nanny able to set clear boundaries - a very rare combination in my experience. Our child still talks about her and remembers some of the things that Valy taught her. We've kept in touch with her since she still does some occasional babysitting for us. Moreover, she doesn't hesitate to go the extra mile. For example, in addition to preparing our child's dinner she would also prepare the dinner for the family. She's very conscious about cleanliness and hygiene and would always leave everything in impeccable condition.

Valy has looked after my two daughters on several occasions so far.She is currently my first and only choice for childcare and I won't consider anyone else right now.
She is excellent with the girls,professional,understanding,well qualified,and flexible.
Valy cooks nutritious food every day,really well balanced meals which my daughters enjoy very much.
Her facilities are also of the highest standard,while providing a warm and friendly space for the children.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Valy to look after your children.
