Katarzyna Ziemba

My name is Katarzyna Ziemba; I am the owner and manager of Little Stars Nursery.  

I started working as a nanny in 2002 for a family very close to my heart in Stoke Newington.

I was taking care of 2 fantastic sisters until 2011. In 2008 I begin my education in City and Islington College studying Child Care and Development. During my first year studies, I was volunteering in Manor Road Under 5’s Playgroup. I found time in the playgroup very rewarding because I learnt a lot about childcare practice. I enjoyed working with the manager who guided me through my experience in the playgroup. After I left Manor Road Under 5’s Playgroup I joined William Patten Primary School in Stoke Newington where I worked for 2 years as a Teacher Assistant in the reception class continuing my studies through to level 3.

This experience At William Patten Primary School was extremely enjoyable and satisfying; I learnt what it was like to be part of a big community with brilliant work colleagues and fantastic children and families

In 2011 my partner and I were blessed with a gorgeous and healthy daughter called Enya.

I had always wanted to open my own nursery because I saw a need for another childcare provider in the area, it is a dream come true to finally achieve this.
