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 10 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.

When our first born arrived we decided when I would return back to work we wanted her to go to a childminder over a nursery. Being the first born, I wanted to make sure she was in a home from home. On meeting Marta we knew straight away that this was where we wanted to send our daughter. This was in 2018 and she’s been in Martas setting since. We were fortunate enough for Marta to have space and now our son has been with her since 2020.
Both children love going to Martas - in fact our son just runs in and doesn’t even look back. Marta provides us daily updates by pictures and quotes. She challenges both, makes sure they are always doing something fun and where possible spends a lot of time outside. During lockdown 1 our eldest wasn’t able to attend the setting due to us not being key workers. However Marta regularly checked in, and kept sending pictures of our daughters friends. She shared ideas to keep her busy and entertained. A testament to Marta is when we were allowed back how happy our daughter was.
Marta might be our childminder, but actually she’s an extension of our family. Our two children genuinely love her and her family.

Marta has looked after our little boy since he was 13 months, and will do until he starts school in September.
We have loved having Marta as a childminder for our son, she has, throughout, been encouraging, loving and supportive of our son. There are always activities planned for them, that engage their interests whilst also aiming at their level of development.
She has been has been amazing throughout our time of knowing her. She has adapted her work to support our son when there were some language development worries. She has been flexible in supporting me with childcare during times my work hours changed.
I cannot recommend Marta highly enough if you're looking for a childminder for your child.

Marta has been looking after my both kids since they were 11 months old. She is very considerate and does her best to accommodate parents' childcare needs. Initial days in 2015 when I started sending my daughter Sasha to Marta's care, I worked long hours in shifts and Marta very kindly arranged childcare routine around my shifts. I was worried about how Sasha will cope with separation from me but with Marta's care, settling in was very smooth.

She has a planned educational approach to the care she provides. She sends me photos of their activities everyday. She provides nutritious home cooked meals, age appropriate outdoor and indoor activities and personalised care. Both my kids were fussy eaters but they ate perfectly well at Marta's. Marta would chat with me everyday about their progress or concerns. I might sound biased, but I had visited few childcare settings (when Marta was going on holiday) but I have not found anyone who could live up to the high quality of care that she provides. Both Sasha and Ishaan are going to miss Marta dearly. Marta was like a part of our family for the past 6 years and we truly appreciate the love and care she has provided our kids all these years.

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.
