Business overview

Childminder in Norbury Sw16

Hi, I am Sofia

I am bilingual English and Portuguese Ofsted registered childminder between Streatham Common and Norbury SW16, within walking distance to both stations.

As a Childminder, I aim to provide a safe, caring environment, where children can develop physically, socially and intellectually. I aim to work in partnership with the parents to understand the individual needs of their children and together we can monitor and develop their progress.

I understand what an emotional roller-coaster it can be finding the right person to look after your little ones, having gone through this experience myself, I have a great understanding of the Early Years Foundation Stage to teach them and help them to develop and grow into happy confident children, in a safe and caring environment.

I enjoy doing the below list of activities with the children:

Arts and crafts

Singing nursery rhymes

Reading and spelling

Counting and adding

Cooking and kitchen fun

Dressing up

Puzzles and board games

Messy play

Garden games

Local play groups



Please feel free to contact me to discuss more.

The most wonderful childminder

We were so lucky to find Sofia to look after our son; who started just before his 1st birthday. Sofia was kind, reliable and warm in all aspects of her care. Not only was Sofia's provision a home from home, Sofia's provision is outstanding, the children go out everyday and the planned provision is so well thought out and personalised to each child. We honestly couldn't recommend Sofia enough- she is simply wonderful. Thank you so much Sofia.

An exemplary setting and a top-notch service

Our daughter has attended Sofia's setting consistently for over three years (from 18 months through to Reception stage), which is a reflection of the trust we have in Sofia.

The standard of care offered is exemplary – imaginative, varied and engaging. The activities are thoughtful and diverse, always supporting the EYFS framework, and have sped our daughter's development. We have no doubt that the glowing end-of-year report we received from the nursery owes a great deal to the support Sofia has supplied on the learning journey.

There are also regular visits to parks, museums, farms and zoos; the children have a good mix of activities, whatever the weather. The home-cooked menu is more varied than what we provide at home!

The daily reporting is excellent – we have confidence in the care that our daughter is receiving because we can see the evidence firsthand.

Sofia has been reliable, flexible and unflaggingly energetic. I would recommend her to any parent of young children.
