About Me

Hello Parent. My name is Zaneta and I live with my family and my boy and girl twins in a quiet street opposite the Parkfield park in Potters Bar. I enjoy my job very much, and for me knowing that the children are happy makes me happy.

I appreciate how hard it can be for you to find the childminder for your child. I do my best to provide a warm and accommodating home from home for your child, support the child's development and ensure her and his safety.

We have a large patio area and a large garden. There is a trampoline, children sandpit, and lots of outdoor toys. We also use the garden to put up a tent which is lots of fun for the children. I love gardening and share this experience with my children and the children I mind. We go to local farms to pick seasonal fruit and vegetables. Having grown up in the countryside it's a great opportunity to give back and share these experiences.

Indoors it’s a great contemporary space for the kids, large playroom with opportunity for crafting, making, baking, painting, a segregated TV media corner and a separate quiet room.
I do Twinkl activities for educational and crafting activities. I have a range of games and toys for individual and group play. Depending on your child's circumstances and in moderation TV, Apple TV, Wii games are available. I take care to ensure the content is appropriate for your child.

More activities…
I do lots of other activities like music, story time, going to playgroups and to the nearby parks. Going to the woods, local library visits and much more.

Visiting nearby parks. We are living next to the Parkfield Space and also often visit Oakmere Park and many other nearby fields and parks. Taking the children there with footballs, hula hoops, tennis rackets, books, bug hunting kits and doing picnic’s, meeting other childminders doing the same.
Treasure hunt in the garden or at the park. Creating lists of objects the children need to find. These could include leaves, sticks, stones, feathers, pine cones, a daisy, an acorn. The children can tick things off as they find them.
Visiting the local library. The local Oakmere library welcome childcare visits. This is a great opportunity to teach children how to behave in the wider community and the importance of handling books correctly. Teaching the children that some books are borrowed and must be returned is a great way of doing this.
A day in the woods. There is so much opportunity here to learn and play. Even on rainy days, a walk in the woods can be fun - wellies and waterproofs and away you go! Building dens, playing hide and seek, tag, building pretend campfires, collecting natural materials and enjoying a picnic will provide hours of fun.
Visiting Nature Reserves. Enjoying some local beauty hotspots with a trip to a nature reserve.

Zaneta lives in a great location and has an amazing structure for the children in her beautiful house. She’s got 2 children who are lovely and became friends with my little boy. She’s very caring, professional and a pleasure to deal with. My boy was very happy during the time he spent with her and we still go back during half terms and holidays.
