About Me

Hello, my name is Svetlana. I am an OFSTED registered childminder. I have lived in Ross on Wye for 10 years. I am married and I have 4 children, 3 sons aged 18, 8 and 3 and one daughter, aged 6. We have a very friendly and beautiful cat named Max. We are a vegan family, so I can provide vegan meals, but you are welcome to bring any of your own food. We have a lot of toys and a big fun garden with swings, slides, trampoline, seesaw, sandpit, play kitchen and more. I like to spend time with my family, to travel and to do sport. I speak in three languages: English, Lithuanian and Russian.

I offer a safe and secure childcare at all times and close personal attention to each child. I follow the Early Years Foundation Stage and provide stimulating environment for little ones to play and learn whilst having fun. I love looking after children. Looking after children is something that I really enjoy as I love to see and learn about how they develop and grow.

Please contact me for more information. I offer 2 settling in sessions for free up to 2 hours each once the contracts have been signed. You are very welcome to come and have a look around.

I have up to date DBS check, First aid, Food hygiene, Safeguarding and Prevent training.

I offer funded places for 2,3 and 4 year old.

Svetlana is an amazing childminder! My boy settled in quick and so well at her setting. He is very happy there and I know he's going to be looked after very well.I can leave him with calm heart every time. She's very attentive and caring person. Nothing is too much for her and she's very flexible and considerate to your needs. Couldn't ask for a better person to look after my son !

My boy started in Feb with few hard sessions but then he got used and now he loves going. Svetlana care incredibly for him. Very careful and kind. She is planning a large variety of activities for him, and keep me up to date throughout with what he was doing using a lovely and very useful app. She has a lovely outside space too for children to use. Svetlana has been so thoughtful in acknowledging special days like holidays and special days for us. Even the snacks she is providing is always different. My boy loves her and all her fantastic family.
She is The best for my boy.

My daughter has been with Svetlana since January. When I drop her off she is so excited to see Svetlana and when she comes home she always has a different art or craft project they've been doing that day. I receive regular photos and videos throughout the day and W always looks so happy. Svetlana always keeps me updated with how W is doing and has been very open and supportive during the lockdown. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a care setting.
