Aga looks after my 4 year old son and he just loves spending time at her setting , playing with other kids and learning new skills. Aga provides a large variety of activities . She is very caring and friendly - couldn’t find a better place .

Thank you Maya!
It was a pleasure to have cared for you little boy and to have known you all.

Aga is well respected childminder by her pupils and by the parents who leave their children in safe hands. From the very first day of settling my son loved the environment and blended in with other children in no time. Aga carefully observe each needs of the children and set appropriate tasks for individuals to help develop essential skills.
She promote independence , respect, manners and hygiene. The only downside that I found is that all children are going for a nap regardless the age group as some children don’t have routine of napping through the day. I still would recommend her to any parent as the child really learn a lot and enjoy being there.

Thank you Gosia for the review.It was a pleasure to have your little one with me.In response to a nap time ,yes all children that I care for in my setting go to sleep after lunch.For young kids to get enough of it, most need some daytime sleep it is a much-needed downtime that aids the important physical and mental development that happens in early childhood.Some of the most important reasons why naps are so important:Naps enhance learning, are linked to better emotional regulation,naps support better nighttime sleep. Recent researches fund that when the children were allowed a siesta after lunch they performed significantly better on a visual-spatial tasks in the afternoon and the next day than when they were denied a midday snoozeFollowing a nap, children recalled 10% more of the information they were being tested on than they did when they had been kept awake.
Close monitoring of 14 additional youngsters who came to the researchers' sleep lab revealed the processes at work in the brain during asleep.
As the children napped, they experienced increased activity in brain regions linked with learning and integrating new information.Rebecca Spencer(University of Massachusetts Amherst) said: "Essentially we are the first to report evidence that naps are important for preschool children.
"Our study shows that naps help the kids better remember what they are learning in preschool."

I have always felt very comfortable leaving my son with Aga, knowing she provides a caring, friendly, loving and safe environment. My son has settled in there from our first visit. Aga setting is perfectly set up with lots of toys. She 8s extremely knowledgeable about child development and will shere her experience with you. During the day she sends updates and photos which are really reassuring your child is safe and enjoying the time. I couldn't imagine better place for my son. I can see he become more independent and more open to other people.
I would recommend her to everyone.

We are so very thankful to have found Aga and for her to be my child's carer. My son spent 2 years in Agnieszka home and always came home looking happy and calm. His development was greatly enhanced by being in a solid, fun, regular environment.
Aga is a very efficient, capable, loving person. Lovely to see each day.
I am extremely happy to give Aga a perfect review.

Thank you Daria for your review!
I wish you and your son all the best on your new journey.

We are very happy with Aga’s childcare. Our daughter enjoys the time she spends at Aga’s and she has never cried when going to nursery. From the first time we entered Aga’s house we felt it is the right place for our daughter. The atmosphere is very nice and the environment very safe for kids. Aga is a very warm and open minded person who often gives good advice on child’s development and upbringing. I really trust her and believe it was the best childcare choice I could make when returning to work. I do not have to constantly worry when being at work as I know my daughter is in good hands.
