About Me

I am an Ofsted registered Childminder (rated Good) living in the Hurst Park area of West Molesey, with my husband and son. I am located in a quiet part of Hurst Park close to the river. The ground floor of my home is a dedicated playroom which comprises a wide variety of age appropriate toys, puzzles, books etc.

I offer the children seasonal craft and the opportunity to be creative with their learning and discover the different seasons, cultures, traditions and celebrations through or play, meals and craft.

Children benefit from daily outdoor exercise, we regularly attend the river, Bush Park, Hampton Court Palace, Parks, the library, playgrounds, and toddler groups etc. We try to do as much learning outside as we can.

I promote confidence and independence in my setting, where children are taught to wipe up after themselves, put on/off their clothes, learn basic cooking skills, and toilet themselves to ensure they are school ready.

All children benefit from healthy, home cooked food - I am from Thailand and I like to offer and involve the children in the making fresh authentic healthy food packed with vegetables and fruit, and lean protein.

I take a lot of photographs of the children's day to day, and share these readily with their parents throughout the day.

I am registered for tax-free childcare, and 3 year old funding, I accept childcare vouchers.

Naiyana is an excellent childminder and both my children love spending time with her and her family. Both my son and daughter joined when they were 1 year old and are now 2 and 4. She is trustworthy, reliable and offers a loving home away from home environment to nurture each child and there development through creative learning.

Choosing a childminder can be difficult and I remember my priorities were 1. Safety, 2. Family loving environment and 2.Education. I am happy to say Nayiana has ticked all the boxes.

When my children are with Nayiana I know they are safe. Being offsted registered she follows all the relevant policies. The children also get to learn basic life skills about safety this can be road safety, fire drills (visiting fire station or home fire drill).

Although Naiyana setting is in her home the downstairs is purposely designed for the children with access to a secure garden where the children have lots of fun playing with each other. Each week is planned out with different fun activities and can have different thymes e.g. St. Patricks Day, Halloween, Woodland animals, animals who live in cold environment etc. Each child has a learning focus each month, for a 1 yr old this can be using cutlery independently or saying please and a 3 year old can be writing their name. Creative activities are one of Naiyana's strengths and the children get to go out everyday this can be a walk in the park or an outing to magically gardens, fire station or even the nursing home where they sing songs and play games. She also has regular meet up with other childminders in the park this is great to help with social skills. I am amazed at how well mannered all the kids are, from taking off shoes, washing hands, tidying up and just being kind to each other.

My children absolutely love going to Naiyana and I feel my eldest is now well prepared for school. I myself love to see all the photos taken through out the day of all the fun things they get up to. Each evening they come home very happy with a fun story from the day and very full. I would highly recommend Naiyana.

This is my second review but I wanted to add that Naiyana’s care and development activities for my 2 year old meant that she has just past her 27 month old health visitor review with flying colours. Naiyanna has taught her to be independent by putting on her coat, undertaking colour, sound and physical activities that I would have never thought to do.
I am so impressed! Can’t recommend her enough 😀

My little girl loves loves loves loves Naiyanna and her family. She goes in every day so happily.
She’s become part of their family and Naiyanna knows her so well and genuinely cares for her.

Naiyanna is great at thinking of so many activities, and keeping her busy and learning.

She has a great garden with lots of children toys and my little girl is very happy there.

I wholeheartedly recommend Naiyanna. Ten out of ten from me!!

Our son has been with Naiyana for 5 months and we could not be happier. She puts so much effort into the activities she plans for the children in her care. She has a great network of other childminders who she links with and includes lots of seasonal activities.

If you are for top quality childcare look no further!

Naiyana has looked after our 13 months old for 3 months now. He loves going to her house. I can see why, the bottom floor of her house is essentially a nursery. Her facilities for the kids are top notch. I was so impressed when I visited. She wanted me to meet her whole family so that I could be 100% sure that this was the place for my baby which I thought was lovely. Her family are great! One of the things we love about Naiyana is that she sends numerous pictures to our WhatsApp group throughout the day so we can see what he's been up to. It really does make it easier to leave him!
I would wholeheartedly recommend Naiyana, we're very sad to leave her as we're moving out of the area. We wish she could come with us!
