About Me

Hi, my name is Katia and I am an Ofsted registered Childminder.

I look after babies and children under five during the day or older children after school and in the school holidays.
I live in a non-smoking spacious Victorian town house in Shanklin with my partner, our two daughters and two shy cats.
My setting offers a well-structured day, with creative, fun and educational games for all ages. The children have their own toilet, ideal for washing their hands, brushing their teeth and potty training. There is a dressing up corner and a designated kitchen, where the children can safely cook with me and make homemade meals.
The children have the freedom to play outside all year round, the courtyard is clean, safe and colourful, where they can plant and grow strawberries, tomatoes and sunflowers!
Under my care the children are safe, in a home from home environment. We spend time together playing, chatting, reading, singing and having fun.

During the day I:
Prepare and serve the children’s meals provided by parents
Change nappies and make up bottles for babies
Offer a range of play activities, both indoors and outside, to help children develop
Take children on outings, for example to the park, beach and to toddler groups
Take children to and from school

I regularly keep the parents informed and tell them about what their children have been doing when they are with me.
I am available to pick up and drop off to St Francis primary school.
I am an experienced driver, with a clean driving license and drive a fully insured seven-seater car, with car seats to suit all ages.

Katia is an amazing with my son (Adam 2years old). She really understands each child's individual needs and treats them all as if they were her own, with love and care.
Especially now in very difficult time for all of us with Covid-19 she’s doing an excellent job.
I'm more than happy to recommend KidsandK to anybody who requires someone who goes that extra mile. It's well worth it.
We love you Katia 🥰

So I was offered a job full time, and was concerned about childcare. however finding Katia was the most amazing thing ever, she has Jacob 4 days a week for 9 hours a day, I drop him off and he absolutely beams when he sees her.
He has developed so much in the 4 weeks he has been there and he is so so happy. Katia & my Son have made it such an easy transition from being a full time mum to suddenly a full time working mum doing 37.5 hrs a week.

would highly recommend Jacob xxx
