About Me

If you are looking for a childcare service that puts your child first, allows your child to experience a fun and exiting approach to learning in a safe and friendly environment and cares about the growth and development of your child then give me a call.

My name is Marta and I am an Ofsted registered childminder. I was graded OUTSTANDING at my last inspection in September 2016.

I offer a warm, professional and friendly childminding experience based in Rooksdown, Basingstoke.

I believe that my role is to provide a safe, stimulating and caring home- from- home experience with lots of cuddles and attention for all children in my care. I offer a variety of home and community based activities, designed to educate and entertain differing age and social abilities of the children within my care.

My Experience

I have plenty of child care experience.

MOST OF ALL I have been a childminder for 6 years and in this time I have cared for many children all with their own unique needs and requirements.

I also have my own children and providing stimulating activities for them and seeing them succeed give me a great deal of pleasure and confidence that I can do it for other children.

My son Callum went to Marta for just over a year and I was very happy the whole time Callum was with her.
Marta has a very calm and patient nature and my son was comfortable with her from the beginning.
The children are entertained in various ways, whether it be out walking in the forest, attending play group or get togethers with other childminders or baking and playing at her house. Marta sent me lots of lovely photos of all the different activities Callum was doing. Callum's development really came along in this year.
I highly recommend Marta if you are looking for childcare.

I am very pleased to send our 1 year old son with Marta. We felt very safe to send our son with her.

She is excellent childminder and very flexible. She takes care of our son very well.

She communicates very well and understands the needs of babies very well. She is very organised and plans very well.

She is definitely best childminder and I would recommend her strongly.

Marta took care of our son Maxim for a year before she moved to Basingstoke. We can see that Olivia’s parents (Maxim and Olivia were taken care of at the same time) have already left a review and we whole-heartedly agree with it.
I had to go back to work full time when Maxim was nearly 1 year old and as a first time Mum very anxious to leave my child. But the transition was painless. He got used to Marta and the children in her care quickly and already within a week we saw a difference in him. He learnt so many things in her setting and became a very confident child.
Our son was treated like part of the family and you could feel it when we came to pick him up. We liked it that Marta has a chat with us about the day and point some of the achievements and naughty things Maxim has done. This made it more familiar and as if talking to a relative rather than a person we employ.
Marta is not only very warm and gives you an instant feeling of trust but is also very professional and knows her field of work. This mix is rare as we noticed while interviewing childminders.
We are very happy to recommend Marta. Your child will have a fantastic time in her setting and will be well cared for.

Marta looked after our daughter Olivia from the age of 6 months for two years until recently moving away from London. We were so lucky to have found Marta who cared for our daughter in a truly outstanding way. It was very difficult for a first-time mother to leave her young baby in the care of another to return to work but Marta made the transition very smooth and our daughter was always treated like one of the family.

Marta is very energentic and does lots of crafts activities, exciting and well-planned trips and focuses on education and fun in the right amounts. Whilst our daughter was a baby Marta prepared daily care cards which was helpful to know what Olivia had eaten, when she'd slept etc. From the very beginning, Marta always sent a weekly photo diary of what the children had done and the best part of the week was to see what our little girl had been up to and try to guess where she had visited - can definitely say our daughter's been to many more museums in London than even we've managed!

It is my pleasure to recommend Marta to any prospective parents with young children.

I would like to recommend Martas childminding services . My 5 year old son was under Martas wings for 1.5 year . Very quickly she became like a new family member to us . She is very warm but this same time firm person . My son always was very happy to stay with her . Also her professional background was very helpful when she had to deal with different situations on every day basis . Smily, open and always happy to help , she is putting all heart into her work . I felt very safe and secure leaving my boy with her which was always my mine concern with other cares . Thank you Marta for looking after Janek in such a special way !
