My name is Katarzyna, I live in Dartford with my husband Radek and our 2 boys. I am a Ofsted Registered Childminder
I worked as a nursery nurse in London from 2006-2009.after having our younger son in 2009 I stayed with him at home it made me realise I was missing my childcare career.
We run a smoke-free home .
My aim is to provide a warm, caring, friendly setting for children to grow and develop safely.I aim to work with you to provide the best possible care for your child.
My service provides healthy snacks and encourages your child to choose healthy options.
I like to give all the families I meet a warm welcome and support parents and children throughout the childminding experience.
As I follow the Early Years Foundation stage I will be preparing them for nursery by encouraging them to learn numbers, letters and writing all through play as well as having lots of fun through social interaction with other children.
