About Me

Ofsted Good Provider Logo


My name is Nerina,I am a registered Childminder with Ofsted. I live with my husband ,who is my ofsted registered Assistant and our three lovely children. Our adventurous caring son is 10 and 9 year old witty and affectionate girl attends Our Lady Immaculate school . We also welcomed baby órlaith in April 2018.

We live in Tolworth/Surbiton, walking distance from both train stations. There are close links to Worcester Park, Epsom & Ewell, New Malden and Kingston as well as good central London links

We love parks, adventure trails at Ewell court - feeding the ducks & squirrels , trips to the library and we live close to lots of fantastic amenities for children ( we are within walking distance of 3 children centres )

I am creative,reliable, flexible;.I offer a safe and caring "home from home" environment in which children can play and learn. We have lots of trips out to playgroups, children's centres, music classes, soft-play, playgrounds, loving to discover the outdoors.

We learn through play, discovering the EYFS,. I have a wide range of educational toys ( lots of fun ones too ) suitable for all ages which I rotate on a regular basis. We do arts and crafts, reading, role play. I have a garden with a selection of play equipment , our ever growing vegetable patch and ride-on toys for the children to enjoy. We bake, create and make sure every day we discover

Your little person will have their own cot to sleep in, so they can find their routine with peace and quiet

Both my husband and I have a Pediatric first aid certificate approved by Ofsted, Cache certificate in "Introduction to Childcare Practice", Safeguarding Children certificate.

I have attended Early Years Foundation Stage training for Childminders and been granted a good/ outstanding rating by Kingston Council and a chaperone license.

Therefore I can offer 2 year funding. I continue to develop my early years knowledge and education; I am currently furthering my academic attainment with a view to becoming an early years teacher and montessori teaching methods.

Unfortunately I currently do not accept 3 year funding, as I don't have space.

I am very flexible when it comes to working hours. I have in the past looked after small people from 6 am until 11pm. I understand that life doesn't fall into 9am - 5pm. I am happy to provide childcare ad -hoc at the weekends.

As a mum and experienced childminder I know this little person is the most important person in your life and am more than happy to answer any questions you might have; please do give me a call me or email!!.

I look forward to hearing from you

There are actually no words to describe how wonderful Nerina is as a childminder and person. From the first moment of entering her house, you feel the friendly, welcoming, warm, calm atmosphere that she and her lovely family create and surround the children with. Our little 2-year old boy, who is generally a little apprehensive when it comes to staying with someone else, transformed into a happy little person, skipping into her playroom as soon as he arrived. It was a pleasure to observe and made having to go to work so much easier.

She goes on fun outings with the kids, such as soft play, library, playgroups, parks, and seasonal events, and provides delicious food for the little ones. My favourite read of the day was the little journal she keeps and sends home with your child.

On top of all, she was incredibly flexible and understanding of our unusual working schedules and accommodated us whenever she could.

It broke my heart having to take our little boy from his happy place under her care due to us moving, and he still misses and talks about Nerina.
