Iluska has been a family friend for over five years and has looked after both of my children (5 and 2 year old) both during the day and overnight.
Iluska is extremely warm and welcoming and has formed great relationships with my children. Her particular strengths are her enthusiasm and energy for creating new experiences for the children and exposing them to a wealth of opportunities to explore. For example, making fabric flags and hunting for sticks for the poles, nature trails and planting seeds. Iluska is also very good at exploring the local area and taking advantage of events and amenities such as the local library and festivals.
My children have thoroughly enjoyed a wide range of craft activities organised by Iluska, for example painting dragons to celebrate Chinese New year and using glitter to create firework pictures. My daughter has especially loved playing with the cardboard box models Iluska has made of a rocket, pirate ship and castle.
Iluska has been a positive influence on my children’s fussy eating habits, by introducing them to a variety of different foods, encouraging them to help make meals and creating a fun and upbeat atmosphere at meal times. Iluska cooks healthy and nutritious (and delicious!) meals and my children love going for dinner.
I would strongly recommend Iluska as a childminder as she provides a simulating and warm environment in which children can flourish and develop into individuals.
Hi, I'm Iluska Beaton, and welcome to the site for Beatonhouse Childminding.
I am constantly looking for new places to go to explore and play, Visit the activities page to see just a few of the places we visit.
Food is a big part of life in The Beaton House. I have a love of food & I think it is very important that children are involved with food from a young age.
"I would strongly recommend Iluska as a childminder as she provides a simulating and warm environment in which children can flourish and develop into individuals."
"Iluska is very interested in educating the children about healthy eating and to this end often involves the children where appropriate in cooking activities - this can range from making their own pizza to helping to prepare a rainbow trout!"
"The home environment she provides for her children is both nurturing and stimulating and if she was my childminder I would be safe in the knowledge that my children were being very well looked after."
