I wish I could give Katarina 10 stars on here. Our son was with Rory since he was 7 months old and is the boy he is today because of the caring, loving nature that Katarina nurtured him with for 50 hours every week. He has just left to go to school in September. I highly recommend Katarina as a Childminder. She is excellent in everything she does. She is so loving, caring and passionate about her job as well as ensuring the children have a fun and safe environment to play in. She really is amazing. She sets up different games for the children to play depending on their ages and she also sets up a knowledge/play table with different themes like Harvest time, Halloween, Ocean animals, farm animals and the Antartic. She has always changed her activities for the development for our son depending on his age. Our son loves Katarina and would be excited to go to her house on a Monday morning. Katarina's house is immaculate and is safe for babies and toddlers to play, she also provided nutritious meals to our son over the years. I feel like Katarina is a part of the family and always sent us updates on activities and sent us photos. Katarina is thorough at her job and takes pride in everything she does. You would be absolutely lucky to have Katarina as a Childminder for your child. She is amazing.

Both of my children were with Katarina so she has been part of our family for 6 years. She looked after them from young babies through to after school childcare.

She is incredibly caring, wonderful with babies and her in home setting provides a calm, safe environment for little ones. She supports them with milestones including walking and speech, with lots of reading and education toys.

Katarina has a deep understanding of the EYFS curriculum and so provides fun activities that engage the children and also educate. She is excellent in supporting children to become school ready.

The children spend a lot of time outside when the weather is good, in the communal garden, parks and walks to Ruislip Lido. Katarina has a lot of fun outdoor toys for the children to play with as well to teach them about taking turns and team games.

When Covid restrictions allow, Katarina has taken them to local toddler groups and libraries to engage with other children in different settings and different toys and activities. Katarina is well known and respected in the local community for providing excellent childcare. We have recommended her to several families, all of whom have had positive experiences.

We have left Northwood now but we and the children miss her so much.

My child loves to go here as the activities run are so creative and fun. I have never come across a place like this where so much thought is put into growing each child’s imagination and making sure they learn new things on a daily basis. As a parent getting daily pics on what my child has been upto is so informative. Katarina is really flexible on days/times agreed as things can change lastminte.com, she is very accomodating and understanding.

My husband and I have been delighted with the care and support Katie has provided our daughter, and the reassurance she has given us as first time parents. Our daughter has thrived during her time (from 9mths) with Katie and we have seen huge leaps in her development from her motor skills to cognitive abilities and particularly social skills interacting with the other lovely children Katie cares for. Katie’s flat is immaculate, she creates wonderful and imaginative activities for the children and there is plenty of time in the fresh air. If we had not moved from the area we would have continued to use Katie for as long as possible. We highly recommend her, she has been fantastic.

Katarina cared for my son for 2 years. She has always been very caring, loving whilst proffessional, taking the children to various activities to keep them occupied and entertained whilst also educated. The communication was excellent, including regular updates and reports.
My son is still talking about Katarina and his time whilst in her care.
If you are looking for a trustworthy, caring and nurturing childminder, then I can highly recommened Katarina as the person for your child.
