About Me

Hello I’m Roberta(Berta), I’m an Ofsted registered childminder and mother of two girls who lives in Eastbourne. I started my Childminding journey in 2013 in Forest Hill, London, after I had my first daughter. Over these years I worked with many families from different backgrounds and cultures.  Each child is unique. I take my profession seriously and therefore I’m always learning and acquiring more knowledge. It’s magical to see the child discovering their body and how things work whilst developing and learning through play.

We go out everyday and we have a routine that I developed to be in contact with nature in all kinds of weather but we also enjoy going to playgroups and soft plays during the rainy or very cold days. We go to visit beaches, parks, forests, music groups, playgroups and much more. I’m a qualified kids yoga instructor; we practice yoga and meditation at home. We love music and storytelling. We enjoy all kind of music and rhythms, we like to make silly sounds and the children enjoy when I play ukelele to them. We often have fun dancing using our scarfs and shakers, playing games and moving our bodies. We also love storytelling and have story time daily.

During school half term and summer holidays we become little explorers looking for exciting and stimulating places to visit around Eastbourne and the surrounding towns. 

I offer a diverse and multicultural environment. I’m Brazilian, I’m fluent in Portuguese and English.

I want the parents to feel confident that their children will be cared for and nurtured. The children can enjoy the comforts and security of my family home and also have fun days out full of great adventures. 

My childcare setting may be a childcare provision, but it feels just like home. 

I can offer 15 or 30 hours free childcare entitlement for over 3s and 4s. And also over 2s, when entitled by the government.
