I am Eleni and I am the owner of Mama Bee’s Childminding Service in West Park, Leeds. Mama Bee’s is a home-from-home style setting, where I hope children will feel comfortable and relaxed like they do when they are at home!
At Mama Bee’s, it is important that children have fun, whilst challenging themselves and learning new skills. As a provider of the Early Years Foundation Stage, all activities will encourage and enable children’s development. Activities will support: Physical Development, Communication and Language, Personal and Social Development, Mathematics, Literacy, Expressive Arts and Design and Understanding the World.
Each day will be different, depending on whether we attend a playgroup, go on an outing or stay at home to play. There will be a mix of structured activities, free play, outdoor play and chill out time.
Children will be provided with healthy, vegetarian and fish based meals and dairy free alternatives are available on request.
I have over 10 years’ experience of looking after and working with children, including my own. I am a mum of two lovely boys, aged 11 and 1.
My previous role was as a Teaching Assistant in a local primary school. I absolutely loved my job, but after leaving to give birth to my second son, I decided I would like to use my love of working with children to become a childminder in my own home.
In 2016 I graduated from Leeds Beckett University with a degree in BSc (Hons) Psychology, which included modules in child development. Whilst studying, I regularly volunteered as a Classroom Assistant in my son’s primary school and worked as a Housekeeper in the local hospital. Soon after graduating, I began working as a supply Childcare Assistant in several nurseries around Leeds.
Before I began my degree, I worked as a Youth Worker in North Leeds and provided services and activities for children aged 11-19 years. That is where my passion for working with children and young people really began! As well as my love for helping children grow and develop, I love getting stuck into arts and crafts, listening to music, watching live bands, being outdoors, reading, singing, song and poetry writing, cooking (and eating!) and I really enjoy trying new things!
