I am a mother of two children (D.O.B.2003 and 2008). When I first left school I was a nanny in London for 3 years before completing a BA degree in Travel and Tourism Management. After graduating I worked for an airline, then in sales and marketing. Once I had my son in 2003, I decided to return to childcare, hence I registered as a childminder. I have a caring nature and would love to look after your child/ren.
I run a relatively small setting, which enables me to give plenty of individual attention and one-to-one support to all the children in my care. This also allows me to form close relationships both with the children and their family, which in return provides a sound basis for supporting and nurturing the children. I believe in the importance of healthy eating, as well as physical and mental well-being, so I incorporate a wide range of indoor and outdoor activities to support these and provide the best possible early years for the children in my care. We visit playgrounds, parks and the beach; and look forward to returning to playgroups, the library and soft play when restrictions are relaxed. I offer art and craft activities, toddler yoga, reading, singing sessions and we celebrate different festivals, too.
I endeavour to provide an exciting and stimulating environment for every child to make their time happy and enjoyable here. This ensures parents feel comfortable and stress-free, while their child is in my care.
When I first registered as a childminder I completed a short course in childminding, followed by the universally required Paediatric First Aid Course and Safeguarding Children. Since then I have attended many short courses, as well as a CACHE level 3 Diploma in Home-based Childcare and a 6-month course Working with Children 0-5 with Special Needs. I have cared for children from a variety of backgrounds and children with Special Needs, such as Autism, Dyspraxia, speech and language delay and global developmental delay. I am bilingual in English and Hungarian and value the cultural heritage of every child. I aim to meet the needs of all children in my care and my main goal is providing a safe, secure, healthy, happy and stimulating environment for all children, where every child is SPECIAL and made to feel welcome.
CACHE Level 3 Diploma in Home-based Childcare, Certificate in Working with Children 0-5 with Special Needs, Paediatric First Aid, Safeguarding Children Levels 2 & 3, a variety of short courses in childcare, as well as a BA (Hons) Degree in Travel and Tourism Management
I have no vacancy at present.

Krisztina has been my daughter’s childminder for the past 3/4 years and my daughter has absolutely loved it. Everyday they did different activities, a lot of which was outside going to parks and beaches which I think is great! She really helped develop my daughter’s skills in preparation for school such as recognising letters and numbers and writing her name. She has a lovely garden and plenty of toys and activities for them to do. I also really appreciated the learning journal she kept for my daughter which is so nice to look back on and she sent photos of what they were up to everyday. Krisztina is a lovely and caring childminder, my daughter loved spending time there and I knew she was in really good care! I would definitely recommend her to anyone!

Thank you so much for your review, it's lovely to know you are so happy with the care I provided for your daughter.
Krisztina is fantastic. She offers all I could ask of a childminder. She is very loving, nurturing and easy going. Her home is friendly and welcoming and my daughter loves spending her time there. I feel very confident my daughter is safe and well-looked after when in Krisztina's care.
Krisztina really takes the time to listen and engage with the children in her care and is always calm and patient. The children do a whole range of activities, going to playgrounds, parks, beach and daily activities such as crafts and arts, pretend play, dress up, songs and stories.
I have also been kept up to date with what my daughter does every day, such a diary and photos which I have loved.
I would thoroughly recommend Krisztina to anyone. Overall an amazing and lovely person and a brilliant childminder.

Thank you very much for your kind words Petra. I am so pleased you are happy with what I do. Having wonderful parents are just as important as wonderful children.
My daughter has been attending Krisztina's setting since she was just over a year old and now she is off to school. Krisztina's loving, patient and gentle nature has been perfect to help my child grow, learn and become ready for school. The children have regular trips to the park, library, beach and the outdoors, and at the setting there are plenty of opportunities for learning, trying new things and playing with favourite toys and games in a safe, happy environment. I would always highly recommend Krisztina.

Thank you so much for your lovely review, it's so nice to hear you feel this way and be appreciated.
My little boy leo has been going to Krisztina since he was 18months old. He always has so much fun and is learning so much. Her home has a warm and friendly feel that made me feel very welcomed which was no surprise when he settled immediately.
Krisztina equally does a variety of activities with Leo which I love coming back after a day at work to hear of the adventures and activities he has been doing.
Krisztina has also encouraged his creative side, such as arts and crafts which he now really enjoys.
I can highly recommend krisztina - she is the perfect childminder in my eyes!
