Natasha has been childminding my son for 3 days each week for nearly two years, from the age of 18 months to almost 3 and a half years. I have been extremely happy with the care she has provided, both in terms of how settled and happy my son is with her and also how he has developed during the time he has spent there.
She provides a wide, fun range of activities, including spending time outdoors both in the garden and out and about at parks, visits to playgroups, playing with other children in her care with all the toys available and doing crafts. My son looks forward to the days he spends with Natasha and is happy and comfortable when we drop him off each morning. His language has developed immensely, and she has also supported him through potty training, exposed him to a variety of different foods, and through learning to play and share with others.
I would highly recommend Natasha as a childminder to other parents. She is reliable, kind, patient, flexible and very capable. She provides a safe, happy and welcoming home environment. She has been enthusiastic about my son’s development and has tailored activities to his interests (such as trains!) and has helped him to learn and to develop into the confident and happy little boy he is now.
I will be very sad to see our son leave her care (due to the arrival of our second child and my maternity leave), but would like to thank her for the excellent care she has provided and have no hesitation about recommending her to others. - Hannah N
My child has been in Natasha’s care from age of 1 year and 3 months to nearly 2 and a half years and during this time has grown into a happy and confident little boy. Natasha has played a huge part in his development in that she has given my child guidance in manners, play, sharing and of course her loving care. Especially because my little one is Bi Lingual and speaks two languages and she helped him improve his English. I can’t stress enough how I would not hesitate to recommend Natasha as a childminder and have found her to be extremely competent, conscientious and trustworthy. I would have 100% confident that she would be able to offer any child in her care everything that is required and more.
I was really lucky finding Natasha and happy she took care of my son and I was able to go to work really relaxed. Because of her flexibility I was able to work in my own pattern. My little one absolutely loved going to Natasha and already was looking forward to it a day before. I can’t thank you enough for all you support over the past year. I couldn’t have wished for more professional, caring and dedicated cover. I will miss you and your family as much as my little man will. I hope we can stay in touch, even if we live in another country from now on. - Jaqueline and Martin S
Natasha has looked after my 9 year old son who is on the Autistic Spectrum for just under a year. She has collected him from school and kept him fed, entertained and well looked after at the end of his busy school day. He has very much enjoyed his time with her and she has been very patient and understanding with him. - Lucy R
To whom it may concern. I have sadly ended my contact with Natasha for Ben, my four year old son, due to him starting school in September.
Ben had some lovely days with Natasha and Maisie her 3 year old daughter. Days were fun and action packed, trips to local parks, lyme park, indoor play centres and arranged play groups.
Natasha's home is so welcoming, spacious lounge with toy's, books and play tent and the eating area was ideal for the children. The garden has had a recent facelift, with the new artifical turf making it an ideal play area.
You will find Natasha a very loyal, caring friendly childminder, excellent in communicating and keeping you up to date with your child's day with emails and photos. I would highly recommend Natasha to anybody looking for childcare. - Kind regards Joanne W
Total pleasure to have in my sons life :O)
Natasha is looking after my four year old son three times a week. my son Ben so looks forward to going to Natasha's house. day outs, parks, indoor play centres, arranged play groups, plenty of toys at the house and outdoor space. Natasha has a 3 year old little girl called Maisie, and Ben and Maisie are inseparable.
It is such a pleasure to have a very caring, loyal child minder in a very loving home, Ben loves it and I would highly recommend Natasha :o) - Joannedi
