About Me

Hi. Thank you for reading my profile.

I have over 8 years experience looking after children and newborn.

I am responsible and reliable and love being with children. I am active, fun, enthusiastic and creative.

I also have a degree in nutrition and like to prepare healthy meals and snacks for the children.

I am always around St Margarets, Twickenham, Whitton as I really like the area and know it very well.

I can provide references on request.

I am looking forward to meeting you.

Below are the latest reviews for Marina S. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.

Marina looked after 3 of my children and I could not recommend a person who is more giving, caring and most importantly reliable. She never took a sick day over the 3 years she looked after my children.

My youngest was 4 months old when she started, and the other two were 3 and 4 years old. The challenge of taking care of 3 under 5 years old appeared seamless to her after she got them into a really good routine and structure. Marina is a very passionate person who genuinely enjoys being around children and enjoys the outdoor lifestyle which is really great as my children loved being outdoors in the playgrounds, playdates, softplays and exploring twickenham and Richmond area.
She is also creative and does brilliant craft work with them at home.

As the older two are in school now, I have mothers telling me that I have the best Nanny in the school. Children naturally appeal to her and she engages them, understands them and has loads of fun as she interacts with them and not just sits there as a minder whilst they play.

I am sad to have to let Marina go as my little one will is starting pre-school full time and I work from home now which means I can pick up the kids myself.

If you are looking for a Nanny who relates to children, interacts with them constantly, showers them with love and fun activities but disciplines them with good manners and respect, I can't recommend Marina more than I already have.

I am happy to provide verbal references for Marina should you be keen to consider her.
