About Me

Hi my name is Aga , I work in unique wooden cabin with amazing playground in the garden. The cabin gives the children loads of space to play and explore. The cabin is cosy and designed to provide a bright, safe and stimulating environment which encourages children to explore there surroundings with laughter and ease. All the toys are with in easy reach, for little hands. The floor is soft and imitates natural wood , the big windows look out into the garden. The cabin is double glazed, heated and has a kitchen area,and a toilet. The secluded garden has wet pour rubber (Specially designed floor surface for playgrounds which reduces impact ensuring safe play) outside the cabin with a large playground. It is usable all year round. In the garden we have large colourful toys,a sand pit, cars, a painting area, a play house and many more.

I gained an Outstanding from Ofsted after my inspection in October 2016 This is valid for four years until my next inspection.
I have the recognised child care qualification which is my NVQ of which I attained the level 1,2 and 3 in Childcare. I follow the EYFS framework for children under five in my care. I work with a assistant.

I provide fresh home cooked meals for the children. Ensure visits to local play groups, local parks and Childminder play groups.
I care for children from 6 months upwards. I collect from Queen Edith's Primary School

If interested or would like to visit the setting please do not hesitate to give me a call.

Thank you for reading my profile

Aga was brilliant in stepping in to help provide childcare cover at short notice during the lockdown. Her setting is wonderful - a purpose-built cabin in the garden, with a secure outdoor play area that meant my little got plenty of sunlight and fresh air. There are plenty of activities for the children, and Aga sends regular photos and videos of all they get up to. The environment is relaxed and family-like, with Aga's husband a registered and fully-qualified assistant, and her little dog playing at times too. She makes a lovely connection with the children.

Our daughter has been with Aga for over a year (she’s two years and three months old).
The physical environment is purpose built and really great, activities are well thought through and planned, the setting is relaxed and Aga and husband (Mariusz) are naturals!
Aga is knowledgeable, understanding, attentive, caring and nurturing - and also has been great when we, as first time parents, have been needing advice on various things! Communication is great all round too.
Leaving a little one anywhere at first is almost inevitable to cause some worries, and I suspect most places would have an aspect or two that one would change - we hit lucky with Aga, we’ve not had any worries and simply wouldn’t change a thing!
Our daughter looks forward to going and asks about Aga, Mariusz and the other children often when she’s not there. She couldn’t be happier I don’t think, and I couldn’t imagine sending her (or another child) anywhere else :-)
It’s really interesting watching learning and development, and really clear (and fun) to see the contribution that going here has had. Invaluable.
Couldn’t recommend more.

Aga has minded both my boys and we could not have been happier. Our 3 year has moved onto preschool but still talks about Aga, his friends and the family. Aga is calm, loving and respectful of all the children. She has provided not only a 'home away from home' but an environment full of learning. There are continuously new activities for the children to part take in no matter how young they are, she adapts the play. Especially during settling in periods, Aga provided me as much updates throughout the day as I requested which really helped as I went back to work. I highly recommend Aga and we are very sad to be leaving.

Our little one has been with Aga for a year now and we couldn't be happier with our choice.

He loved going there every day and Aga was pretty much his first word
We cannot recommend her enough.

It's such a fun and happy environment full of laughter, play and learning.

My son Remy has been cared for by Aga since April 2018 when he was 10 months old, and he absolutely loves her.
There have never been any tears at drop off (which made going back to work so much easier), and his face lights up when he sees Aga each morning. The setting has been thoughtfully set up to ensure that the children are cared for in a safe, stimulating and fun environment, that supports their development needs and allows them to thrive. It has all of the benefits of the type of facilities, toys and equipment that you would expect to see at a nursery, but with the focused and authentic care Aga is able to provide in a smaller setting. Remy has benefited so much from being there, and has developed some wonderful little friendships with the other kids.
I wouldn't hesitate to wholeheartedly recommend Aga as a childminder to anyone who is looking.
