About Me

I am an OFSTED registered child-minder based in the Streatham area.

Like most parents, I can understand the stresses that working parents face when finding the right balance when looking for the right childcare.

I value working in partnership with parents to achieve their child's fullest potential.I believe all children have the potential to do well; they just need the right motivation and encouragement.

My home is warm and welcoming and I strive to create an environment where children can explore, learn and develop. Our daily routines consist of days out to play groups, soft play, libraries and local parks, baking and other craft activities. I have a good size garden where we spend most of our time during the summer.

“I want a child to leave my care with good memories, security, confidence, positive experiences and developed to their full potential”

Celina looked after our 22 month old son when we needed some cover for our nanny. She is a really kind and friendly childminder and my son had a lovely time at her house. Her communication with us was excellent and she took very good care of our son - he ate well and loved playing with the toys. We will definitely use her again. Thank you Celina!

My husband and I are Americans with no other family in London. We needed emergency childcare for two days and I found Celina on this website. She was able to accommodate our daughter, who was 9 months at the time. Our daughter LOVED being at Celina's home. There were loads of activities during the day, including a super fun ball pit. The meals she prepared for our daughter took into account her dietary needs and were very healthy. Our daughter loved them, too! Most of all her beautiful and intelligent daughters are home in the afternoon and our daughter just loved them and played with them quite well. Our daughter learned and was loved in just two days. We were so happy with Celina's service that we have contracted her to provide care for our daughter for a longer period of time. Impressive and impeccably clean space. We are formed teachers and Celina has obvious and sound training in child development. Celina's very kind, reliable, and knowledgeable, but most of all caring and loves kids. She comes with our highest recommendation and we're so glad we found her!

Our little girl has been going to Celina since she was 14 months old and has absolutely loved it.
Celina is very caring and has welcomed our girl into her family. Her family are also extremely warm, kind and friendly. It is a lovely environment.
Celina has catered for our daughter's dietary requirements, providing a range of amazing food and allowed her the opportunity to experience different dishes that we might not be able to prepare at home.
Celina takes our daughter out on regular local outings, such as the library, playgroups, parks etc. as well as taking her on trips slightly further away, such as the Science Museum.
Our daughter has made incredible progress with Celina. Celina has helped her develop her play skills and friendship skills. She always engages the children with creative activities that have helped develop our daughter's learning and physical development.
Sadly our daughter is now 3 and moving onto nursery and she is very sad about leaving Celina.
We couldn't recommend Celina more and are very grateful for all the help, love and support she has given our daughter.

My son was 10 months old when he started with Celina. She is so caring, loving and compassionate which made going back to work after my maternity leave so much easier. I knew my son was in safe hands and Celina sent me updates and pictures each day which was so reassuring.

Celina plans fun activities for the children. Fionn was always going to many play groups, childcare centres and parks which I thought was amazing. Fionn's development was enhanced while in the care of Celina. His speech and socialisation skills really improved while with Celina. It was evident she really encouraged Fionn to be verbal and he often came home with a new word or trick that he had learned. Celina is excellent to let you know at the end of the day how your child got on which was so helpful. I preferred the childcare option of a childminder over a nursery and was so glad when we found Celina. Her daughters and sister absolutely adored Fionn and vice versa.

Celina offers an amazing selection of food. It was great to learn the variety of healthy foods my son had eaten that day. Celina really made our work/home life balance so much easier as we knew Fionn was having an amazing time each day and most importanatly in safe hands. We were blessed to have met her ?

We have been very lucky to have found Celina. Our son has been with Celina when he was 3 years old and he couldn't have been in better hands. Celina was always friendly, caring and affectionate towards him. She can easily set clear child's boundaries and be his good friend at the same time! Mikhail was always happy when he was with her and her girls, they all are so sweet that Mikhail he never wanted to leave her house!

Celina's house is very well equipped, clean and with loads of space for the kids to play. There is a great variety of toys that our son loves and has loads of fun with. They do different activities throughout the day in-doors and out-doors. They visit different playgroups and also have trips to the library, farm, museums, seaside.

Mikhail has developed many skills since he started with Celina. He has learned many new words and doing things by himself. Celina is very flexible and open to suggestions. Celina fills in a daily diary which is a great way to know what he is doing, what he is eating and how he is sleeping. She sends us pictures and updates through the day sometimes.

Celina (and the girls) will always be a part of Mikhail's life and we will always be grateful for all the care and love she has given to Mikhail. We highly recommend Celina to any family!
