Happy Giraffes - Ms Sylwia A Brandt

I've been a registered childminder for 8 years and have 15 years experience bringing up my daughter. I have been given an Outstanding grade by Ofsted :)))

I am a very patient person, love children and really enjoy all aspects of working with them and helping them with their development. I’m also energetic and creative and this helps me to provide varied activities.

I am registered for free nursery education for 2 and 3-4 year-olds. I've graduated Level 3 diploma for children and young persons workforce and postgraduate pedagogical training. 
 
I live in between Streatham, Mitcham and Tooting.

I am close to Tooting Bec Park, Furzedown Recreation Centre and Tooting Bec Lido. Moreover I have access to the many resources available in the areas, including libraries, play grounds, soft play sites and farms. I also enjoy the great outdoors and will take your child/children to these places whatever may be the weather.
 
I'm a firm believer that children learn and develop best through playing and experience.
 
Although I provide aprons and cleaning facilities, your child will get messy! So please do not bring them in their best clothes. :) I have lots of resources and play equipment to help children of all ages with their developmental needs.
 
My flat is nice, cosy and very bright. Parents are always welcome to come round for visit and see if my setting and I are suitable for them.
