About Me

Rated Outstanding by Ofsted and passionate about providing the highest level of home based childcare, I specialise in providing pre-school care and play for children aged 9 months to 4 years. Qualified as a pre-school teacher with over 10 years experience as a childminder I seek to provide a rich learning environment in a nuturing, family-like setting where children learn and grown through play.

Born and educated in Poland, I have lived in York since 2003. My setting is fully inclusive and we are blessed to have a number of children who speak other languages in addition to English.

I work with Natalie my assistant but also have have three other registered assistants (My husband - a qualified primary school teacher, mother and mother-in-law) which I keep for emergencies or when I need an extra person. (Having more assistants registered gives me a little flexibility to cover holidays and when taking the children on outings.)

In addition to our play-based activities, I undertake a simple (Stage 2) phonics program for the older pre-school children to help develop their communication and reading skills in preparation for school.

My most recent Ofsted inspection (November 2018), rated Outstanding, described my setting as 'highly accessible, inclusive and stimulating' and the children I care for being 'exceptionally prepared for school' developing 'vital social and emotional skills'. I have excellent parent feedback. We live on Hamilton Drive West in Acomb / Holgate.

I work from a lovely large bungalow (with a lovely garden!) 8 minutes walk (with children!) from school (Acomb Primary or Our Lady Queen of Martyrs) and 3 minutes from the playground in West Bank Park and our allotment, which we sometimes visit during warmer sunnier weather.

We have just extended our house to create a purpose build playroom to help me further improve the quality of care I deliver.

My Experience

I have worked as a childminder in York for over ten years. I qualified in Poland and worked in Warsaw as a qualified pre-school / reception teacher until I moved to York to be with my husdband. Since moving here I have worked in the DEFRA nursery at Sand Hutton before registering with Ofsted as a childminder in 2008.

My Qualifications

In addition to my masters degree I have the diploma in childcare levels 1, level 3 and SENCo.

I continue to maintain my professional development through attending short courses in the evenings and weekends.
