I am an Ofsted registered childminder. I live in Hounslow West with my husband and three boys (ten, five and two year olds). I am a friendly, trustworthy and positive person. My warm loving home is filled with tons of toys, resources and I encourage children to be enthusiastic and energetic in their play to develop their learning and independence. My home is non-smoking and has a large fenced garden with plenty of fun activities such as slides, play house, vegetable bed, sand pit, water activities in the summer, trampoline, bouncy castle for special day treats. I have a local park on our road too. I provide children with healthy snacks as a standard part of my fee. I take regular visits to parks, libraries and playgroups on a weekly basis and I am flexable with my hours of care. My location is easy assess to Heathrow Airport, Bath Road, M4, A312 The Parkway, A30, A4.
I have three young boys of my own which is my main first hand experience in childcare. I actively plan activities and outings to keep them entertained, learning, socialising and developing their skills. We love to cook at home, we make pizza from scratch, cakes, cookies, smoothies. I am involved with local play groups and always encourage and participate in local community events.
I take my personal and professional development seriously and I am keen to keep training and developing my skills.

Below are the latest reviews for Leda. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.
Leda is very good with our 2 year old. He used to scream and cry going to nursery and having tried Leda a few times a week I felt he much rather went to Leda than to nursery. He quickly adjusted to going to Leda. As a parent I received regular updates throughout the days including photos which you don't instantly get from nurseries. Daily updates on his food, sleep and nappy changes. If you prefer a personalised childcare in a homely environment than I'd highly recommend Leda!

Response by Leda on 14/02/2021:
Much appreciated. Thank you ever so much 😊
Wonderful experience!! Leda is extremely professional and disciplined in her work.
Being a wonderful mother herself, she not just looks well after kids but also make sure to indulge them in varied activities which are important for their development.
My son has always been excited and happy to go to her place. Her house is maintained with all safety measures.
I would especially like to thank Leda for being exceptionally helpful in supporting for my son's extra care. She did additional efforts to understand him and his needs, which is commendable.
I would highly recommend her!!
Leda you are best ever childminder i have found for my 10 years old son and the bestest person. I wasn't in such a peace of mind before on my son's holidays before . Thank you so much for all the efforts you have put in.
We could not have chosen a better childminder.
Therefore, I would highly recommend Leda to everyone looking for one.
She has been looking after our daughter of 3-years-old (in a regular basis) and son of 7-years-old (during the half-term breaks) for a while now. And literally my daughter and son are loving her and are always willing to come to her place - which means a lot to us, as a parents.
Leda's place is comfortable, secure and adequate for children (play ground, and a lot of toys to play with). She also gets actively involved in children education, supporting them with activities for their development and learning.
Furthermore, she is quite professional, well-organised and the most important for us as working parents, she has flexibility in order to cover our needs.
I would not doubt choosing her as our childminder again.
