About us...
Happy Tots first started welcoming children 9 years ago - since then a big amount of children and parents have benefitted from the love, attention, education and support provided by Patricia Rogers (a.k.a. Patti). Patti has over 9 years of experience as a certified Childminder - she holds a Childcare Diploma and NVQ Level 3 and 4 in Childcare and speaks Spanish, English and French. Patti is assisted by Melanie Druica (a.k.a Meli) who has 8 years of experience as a childminder - Meli has a Childcare Diploma and is currently studying for a Degree in Natural Sciences. Meli speaks native Romanian and excellent English and Italian. Both Patti and Meli have Paediatric First Aid, Safeguarding and Child Protection, and Food Hygiene Standards Certificates. 
Patricia Rogers (a.k.a. Patti)
Hello i'm Patti! I was born in Buenos Aires in Argentina but moved to UK in 2001 - i've been living and working in London now for 16 years. I have a Degree in Human Resources and worked in Adult Learning and Development Management positions in multinational companies for over 17 years, 6 of which were spent working in the City of London in different Human Resource & Development positions.
 
10 years ago I realised I could no longer ignore my deep love and interest in Children and Child Development, so I decided to throw caution to the wind and reinvent my life, training to become a Childminder to offer childcare from a home environment. I live in a lovely four bedroom Victorian house with a handy patio area in Chiswick with my wonderful husband Chris who is a pillar of patience and support. Chris is an accountant and works from home. 
In the 9 years since I began Childminding I have had the pleasure of working with and caring for around 60  wonderful boys and girls, each of which has left a lasting impression in my heart. There is nothing I love more than seeing my children learn, have fun, and become the best they can be. 
Melanie Druica (a.k.a. Meli)
My name is Melanie Druica, I was born in Romania and am currently studying towards a Degree in Natural Sciences. I lived in Rome for 6 years where I set up my own business in Communication, before moving to the UK in 2010. I have worked in childcare ever since, starting in a Childminder setting in the Brixton Hill area working together with other 3 Childminders and joining Happy Tots in 2012.
I absolutely love what I do. No two days are the same with each bringing it's own unique set of challenges, learnings but especially laughs! I'm always a little sad to see our children leave Happy Tots, but I know that by the time they do they have gained the best possible early life experience and have a great foundation for heading out into the world to express their unique qualities.
