Hi all, I am Blerina a registered childminder based at Maryland Road N22. I’m a member of tiney, a nation-wide community of childcare professionals. I ensure hygiene is at a very high standard to prevent spreading of infection. Currently I have one space available for September 2020.
My goal is to create a calm and purposeful home where children of all ages thrive. I make it a priority to communicate with parents through daily discussion and shared planning on the tiney app. This makes sure every child gets the personal attention they need to settle in easily, feel loved, and learn and develop effectively.
A typical week includes visiting local parks, toddler groups and libraries with the children. We regularly attend playgroups where your child has the opportunity to play in larger groups of children. I consider these larger groups to be an important part of their social and emotional development.
I also speak Greek, Italian (basic) and Albanian fluently.
My home is just off green lanes and wood green underground can be accessed by bus within 5 min.
I cater to special needs such as specific diets etc. so just let me know if you have any requirements.
Because I’m a member of tiney, every family that joins me gets £100 off their first month as a thank you for signing up
Im a member of an Ofsted-Registered Childminding Agency dedicated to giving families access to high-quality childcare. Because I’m a part of tiney, you’ll get a range of benefits like:
Emergency childcare. If I’m ill, I have somebody who can take over so you’re not left trying to sort something out last minute.
A fantastic mobile app that handles payments, communication and EYFS tracking.
A wider community. I get access to regular classes, events, and play sessions exclusive to tiney.
Previous to tiney I worked in nurseries for 6 years, working directly with infants and toddlers.
I have experience of assessing, planing and reviewing children''s needs and ensuring they reach their full potential. I offer childcare in a safe and homely setting with opportunities to provide one to one support such as homework support.
Also offer a variety of daily activities such as painting, lego games, puzzles, little quizzes and other challenges that stimulate and develop each individual child, focusing on their individual needs and preferences and highly respecting diversity. And, of course, I have extensive experience with my own children too!
