Marilena had my daughter for 2 years. I have never met someone as lovely as Marilena and I can honestly say she is the best. She kept my daughter entertained everyday with trips to the farm, play groups and many more destinations. And also quiet time for a nap if needed.Antonia was always excited to see Marilena and never wanted to come home! She is one of a kind. Id recommend her to anyone.
I cannot recommend Marilena highly enough. She is a warm, loving, fun and very experienced childminder. She helped make the settling in process as easy as it could be. My son has been attempting her setting for almost 3 years and he has always been happy there. I also felt very well knowing that David is in a safe and lovely environment. Unfortunately my son is now big enough to go to the nursery so I am very sure that he will miss a lot Marilena and also all the children that he has been playing with. Lots of love, Irina Roxana Popii
After I had a bad experience I am extremely lucky to meet Marilena!
She is excellent and professional also very warm manner with the children.
She is providing very clean well maintained rooms and healthy nutritional food for the children. Also the children buildup a lot for their general knowledge same time enjoying playing games and going to parks and farm.
My son loves and trust Marilena like his one of the family member.
I can recommend Marilena to all the parents, I am more than satisfied with everything Marilena doing with my son!
Thank you Marilena again!

Thank you darlig!I am glad that you and your son are happy!love Mari
My son who is 8 has been attending since June, he loves it here. From the moment you walk through the front door you can feel that's its a fun,loving place. Activities include going to the park (near by),library (near by), and baking. Would definitely refer to a friend.

Thank you very much for your review!
I'm writing once again, just to say how pleased I am with Marilena and the care she has provided to my children. As I mentioned in my earlier review, she is attentive and balances care, safety and discipline in equal measure. I would not hesitate to recommend Marilena if you are looking for a kind, caring and trustworthy carer.

Darren and Lili thank you very much for your considerations,I am really touched!warm regards.Marilena
I am very happy to recommend Marilena as an excellent childminder. She has been introduced to us by another parent from my son's school. We have been dearly welcomed. I was impressed how quickly our little one, Eloise, made Marilena's home as her second home. As any mother I was worried how she will accommodate as my daughter can be very picky whom she will befriend and whom she will keep at distance yet Marilena proved great skills to help my daughter integrate without any issue.
During the time spent at Marilena of over 10 months Eloise’s proved a great progress academically. She was all time encouraged to express her personality. Marilena is very natural with children while demonstrating a high level of professionalism in her approach to lessons and parental connection. I loved she always keeps the children in a good routine, teach them the good manners from young age with focus on social skills and not only. Marilena has shown a great understanding and flexibility couple of times in emergency situations related to my older son.
Since my daughter has been going to Marilena’s house, I’ve been reassured that I made absolutely the right choice. Marilena has a really lovely manner with all the children in her care.
Marilena has been very patient and helpful throughout the settling period, making the entire experience smooth for my 18-months-old daughter who was traumatized from a previous nursery experience. Since my daughter has started attending Marilena’s house, she has become much more confident and independent. She has never cried and got used to the new environment nicely.
The food is cooked on the premises, and high quality ingredients are used since my daughter has never had allergic reactions to food, as previously happened at the nursery.
Whenever I’ve visited the place, I’ve seen all the children happily and safely engaged. The premises are also very clean.
I would definitely recommend Marilena as a trusted childminder.
Marilena have been my son's child-minder near 2 years. Unfortunately we moved out of London- we never would leave her loving care and educational support. My son still remembers her -each time we are traveling to London-asks: can we visit Marilena?
She is really gifted educator-as well as a loving mothering personality:
She is very creative-engaging children in various activities and outings .Providing only healthy meals, only organic juices and snacks for all kids,
Always considering child and family needs first priority.
As a single mum-I could rely on her help,asking to take care of my son on late hours or even overnight. She is never let me down-I trust her 100%.
I have been very lucky having her as my son's educator and
will highly recommend her to every family , needed support with childcare.
It has been 14 months since our son started going to Marilena's house and I have never regretted it. In fact, I feel really comfortable and sure that I made a good decision by choosing her. I definitely recommend her. I feel really confident about leaving the little one with her and her team. My son is always smiling when he arrives, happy and ready to dance, play, jump and enjoy the day with the other children. In fact, sometimes when I go get him he wants to stay! I guess that is a good sign. If my son is happy, then I am happy. It is like a family, there is no way that a nursery could give my son what he gets with Mari. Thanks a lot for taking care of him with so much love!
I am please to have found Marilena to take care of my 15 months old daughter. From the very first day, Elena is at ease when we I drop her for the morning. walking around, playing with other children and all the toys.
Elena nerved cry when I leave her, which is exceptional. She is greeted by the little ones, by Marilena, by a smile and cuddles. I am no worried no I feel guilty knowing that Elena is having a fantastic day and she is well looked after.
Marilena is very organised, professional and know how to make little ones comfortable. She has a clean and funcional home, with organised Montessori style toys. I would recommend her eyes closed. The children spending their days at Marilena are lucky.
