About Me

Hi my name is Monika .
I live in Park South with my husband and two sons (8 Y old and 1 Y old ) in a modern three bedroom house, opposite of recently refurbished playground, with a good-sized secure garden and down stairs WC, within walking distance into Coate Water Country Park.
I returned to work when my older son was 9 months old.
I do understand how hard is to leave child with someone we do not know very well.
I am warm and kind person who will give your child a lot of hugs and make it sure
little one will feel valued and respected.

I am registered with an agency, getting regural training and support

I always aim to provide a quality, caring environment where standards are high,
independence can be developed and where there is a wealth of learning opportunities,
both structured and flexible, to help children to achieve their goals and promote their
self-esteem. I love to be out and about so children can explore world around them.
I am providing regular visits to the parks and play grounds and soft play areas.
Once in a week we are going to the Park Library, where children enjoining story and rhyme sessions and borrow books we are reading together during the week.
At home we are busy with art and craft, play with jigsaw, blocks,
memory cards, music instruments, dressing up etc.
I have loads of educational toys for age 0- 6.
I cater for special needs such as special diets etc. Please contact me for more information or to arrange a visit.
I provide an exciting, loving, happy environment for all children, making sure as EYFS are in place.
Please feel free to contact with me.

Monika has been looking after my 5 year old daughter and 3 year old son with special needs for a few months at our home once a week. She is very trustworthy and the kids like her a lot. Nothing is too much trouble, she's very patient with our son and always full of ideas for activities with both the kids. We felt comfortable leaving her with both children even though our son is prone to seizures and has complex medical needs. I highly recommend her services.

We used Monika for 2 days (half days) and in those 2 short days we found that she was very impatient and her behaviour was very surprising and alarming for a person who claims to have such a wealth of experience with all types of children. She even went on to tell me that my 10 month old baby daughter was DISRUPTIVE and stressing the other kids out! This was very concerning to me that a person who works with children would call a baby disruptive especially also because it was the 1st day she was caring for my daughter. We instantly made the decision that she was not the right match for us. I had to tell her to calm down over the phone because she sounded so flustered -which is not what you need as a parent returning to work.
I would not recommend this child minder to anyone and personally I don't think she has enough experience, if any at all.

Dear Sharon,

I would like to say that I am very sorry that it didn't work out.

When we had a conversation over the phone I did explained reasons why I am unable to look after your little one and you told me: "DO NOT WORRY MONIKA AND DON'T STRESS YOUR SELF UP" then went on my profile and left me this feedback, which is untrue.

For me wasn't easy decision to make and say I will not be able to have your daughter in my setting as I was aware about the fact of previous childminder couldn't look after her due to her illness ( childminder illness, not your daughter).

I really do not like let anybody down. I know how much pressure is on parents these day.

I wish you all best for the future.

Monika is absolutely lovely, I found her when I was really in need of someone to look after my daughter. She's been very helpful and so much kind and polite.I felt confident that my daughter is well looked after. I could see Monika is so well experienced and my daughter has gained so much confidence and very happy to be looked after by lovely Monika. my daughter always shares how her day went. she loves the toys and books that she plays in her house. My daughter is more than happy to be a part of this lovely lady. Thank you Monika

I cannot recommend Monika enough. She offered her help when we needed childcare very unexpectedly and on a short term basis. She is very kind and caring. We were very worried as our baby son (16 months at the time) has never been in any other care than us and his grandmother. He was quite shy, however we have started seeing big positive changes when he started being cared for by Monika. They were visiting library and other social settings and our son quickly became quite outgoing and not afraid of other people.
We never had any issues and always were communicated of any changes as well as if there were any concerns.
A massive thank you for Monika and we will be keeping contact details for sure.
