About Me

Hi,
I am OFSTED registered Accredited Network childminder working along with my husband, who is also a childminder. We both have had our OFSTED inspection and overall grade is GOOD.

As we are both registered childminders we can be very flexible with timings.

Our home is situated in Merstham near train station, where we live together with our sons Samuel and Leo. English is predominant language, but other languages are also used in our household (Slovak, Czech).

We would like to help and support other parents with their childcare by providing a clean, safe and supportive environment where children can play, learn and develop. We work in a very close relationship with parents and children to be able to meet all their needs.

We have the living and dinning room as the main indoor play area & where the most activities will take place, which is gated off from the rest of the house. There is a fully enclosed rear garden for outdoor play. We believe in learning through play, so we give plenty of opportunity for creative activities. We make use of local park facilities, library services and local Parent & Toddler's group.

Children asleep upstairs are monitored at regular intervals by us & also using baby/parent monitors and if baby is in cot, a breathing monitor will be in constant use.

We put an emphasis on daily cooked healthy meals using fresh ingredients. We do understand and fully support children with food allergies and we are able to satisfy their needs within our capabilities.

We offer trial periods for both, parents, children and ourselves to find out the suitability of placement and the time for children to settle in.

Our opening hours are very flexible to parents needs, although we do say between 7.00am & 7.00pm Monday to Friday, we will be as flexible as possible to suit varying work hours or commitments, therefore hours can be discussed and some Saturdays, Sundays and sleepovers are also possible. We work through out the year including all school holidays.

School drop-off/pick-ups offered.
