Marilena is just the right for us. My doughter is 14 month and we are going to Marilena's for the second mounth already and are very happy. Previously we tried to go to a regular nursery and spent 50% of the time at home since my doughter was constanly sick, but at Marilena's my daughter didn't miss one day so far and we are glad we did this change from nurcery to childminder. The food is fresh cooked and thoughtfully made to be healthy. The rooms are very clean and mantained, full of toys that are in a good shape and getting renewed. Marilena and her team are always very polite, dedicated to the children and attentive to the parents´ needs. Marilena is very streaght forward person, flexible, explains everything clearly and deffinitely knows how to deal with children. I highly recomend her as a childminder.

I was looking a person who was able to do the school both drop-off and pick up for my 2 children. I'm thankful that I found Marilena as she is a wonderful carer. My children took to her immediately with absolutely no problem on the very first day. Marilena balances play, learning and discipline with my children so they are also engaged, happy and most importantly well behaved. My children love her and I'm very happy with the care Marilena has provided to them.

Mari has been an incredible discovery. She was recommended to me by a young couple I met one Sunday lunch at my local pub. I was desperately looking for someone to loo after my 6 month son and I couldn't have asked for any better. Since Leo started going to her, he has become a much more sociable baby and has grown incredibly. Mari treats him as if he was her son and has the love and care that only a mother would have. But she is also a great friend to me now, and I know that I can always count on her. As all "new" mums I am very protective of my child and I am thankful to have encountered someone like Mari that I can fully trust. I only wish there were more Maris' out there...

Mary took care of my children as part of after school provision. She also looked after them during school holidays. At the time my kids were 3 and 5. I can highly recommend Mary as a child minder. She has a range of activities for the kids, allowing them to be creative indoors and accessing local resources to play outside. I was able to trust that my kids were safe and happy in her care. Mary was always easy to speak with and listened to any of my concerns, she also provided a flexible service which was great as a working parent. I can highly recommend Mary as a childminder and wish her well in the future.

I can honestly say that my 2 boys love being looked after by Marilena. They never cry when I leave them with her and when I collect them I always find them playing happily!
Marilena is reliable, honest and genuine person. She is very creative and very engaging with children, very playful and caring.
My husband and I are very happy with her and we know our children are in good hands when with Marilena.

My daughter was turning one year old and I really wanted to come back to work but looking around I couldn't find anyone and anyplace good enough for her. I was nearly giving up , when the childminder coordinator met at the children centre gave me her number. What a relief after having met her I knew she was the ONE for me and for my daughter, Sara. She is sensible and passionate about her job and always ready to meet your needs. She loves my Sara as she was her daughter and my Sara loves her too. This is challenging , anyone else could give to her learning activities and funny games but no many in this way. I could say much more about Mari like her amazing handmade lunch , the best trustfull women I never met .....
So after 2 years when I think of her I have got a clear picture of Mary Poppins coming in my mind and I smile!!!

Marilena looked after my two year old for over two years. I found her to be caring, attentive and she educated my daughter.

Even now 2 years on my daughter uses words or does something and will say ''Mary taught me that'.

I had a very clingy child and visited 3 nurseries and 4 childminders before choosing Marilena. It was the best decision I ever made as my daughter still asks to see her now.

Her home and attitude is centred around children. She simply is the best!!

I found Marilena after trying several childminders before. My daughter Alex, just turned 2. After an initial meeting with Marilena at her place, I decided to leave Alex with her on the part-time basis (2 days a week) for the whole day. Marilena's child-minding work exceeded all my expectations in all aspects I can think of. Being the first and only child, Alex was quite a demanding child (from my perspective). She had been always quite disciplined, but would not allow me to leave her for even a very short time with someone else. When left with previous childminders, she would be distressed, crying all the time. Marilena helped me understand that there is nothing wrong with Alex (or me) , that Alex is a very bright child, who just needs to develop trust in other people. I never had problems leaving my daughter with Marilena. Alex suddenly behaved like a different child - letting me leave her without crying. I would whole-heartedly recommend Marilena to anyone looking for more than a child-minder focused purely on basic needs of the children but who also passionately cares for their personal development and education. Her experience and knowledge of child psychology are impressive. Alex was childminded by Marilena for 2 years and is now a confident child who enjoys socialising and interacting easily with various children. Moreover, considering that English is not her mother tongue, Alex has now an impressively high level of communication skills in English. Thank you so much, Marilena.

Kaya, Mum of Alex
