A little bit about me and my assistants
|My name is Dabrowka or Dom for short. I take pride in providing a supportive, yet stimulating environment for your child so that they may play, grow and develop with confidence (in a small family-like environment). I have many years experience of working with children and encouraging them to learn and develop through play as a Nanny, Nursery worker and Childminder in the UK and before this as a qualified pre-school teacher (for children aged upto 8) in Poland. I have a Masters degree in Pedagogy (the study of teaching) from Lublin University (Poland) specifically for pre-school children. I have two boys, one 9 and one approaching 12. I have been childminding since August 2008.|
|Hello! My name is Marek and I'm Dom's husband as well as having recently qualified as a primary school teacher, I'm also registered with Ofsted as Dom's assistant. I've been supporting Dom since she set up all those years ago. As well as enjoying running round the playground withe the children, I'm passionate about helping children to learn to read and help teach the pre-school children early phonics.|
|Hello - It's Nana Tassy here! I'm Marek's mum and became registered as Dom's assistant to provide ad-hoc help if required. As a parent of four children (two being long term foster children) and nana to seven grandchildren aged four to seventeen, I have always been committed to providing a nurturing base to enable them all to develop as individuals. In addition, I have had a long career within local authorities supporting children and their families. This has included running children's groups, training parents and working with other health and educational professionals in providing resources for children with special educational needs.|
|Dziendobry! I'm Babcia Jancia - Dom's mum - also registered as Dom's assistant. I love young children (and, including Dom and Marek's, am a grandmother of 10). I love singing and just playing with the children as well as just helping out as needed.|
To be a registered assistant a person needs to have an enhanced DBS check and be deemed a 'suitable person' by Ofsted.
