About Me

Fully accredited for 2 and 3 and 4 year old funding!

I am 48 years old, married and have 6 children.I am ofsted registered childminder and an Early Years Professional .i am a qualified primary Teacher.I speak 4 languages. I love kids. I used to work as a teacher but due to having my little ones I choose for a carrier change and decided to care for kids at home.I have been minding for 7 years now and find it very rewarding. My training and experience as a teacher give me the great advantage of knowing how to plan activities, see the individual needs of children and be able to help them progress in their development in a homely and friendly environment.I have lots of experience looking after little babies as well as toddlers.I have experience looking after a boy with autism and also looked after a boy with diabetics. I love different cultures and my house is open to anyone. I work with 2 assistants. I can look after up to 11 children at a time. We are all suitable to work with children and have passed an enhanced criminal record check.
I have 2 large play rooms and 1 large tv/play room. We also have a large play area outside that is fully secured, and we are close to 2 local parks.

My Experience

I have of course many years of experience raising my own kids. Further did I work many years as a primary teacher .I worked as an ESOL teacher, teaching English to speakers of other languages. I am very good with children, and know how to meet their needs and how to set up ILP's ( individual learning plans) I do regular assessments of the children I care for and always try to keep them interested and excited. I provide many activities aimed at all different ages, and always try to make every day a fun day!
I hold a special diploma in understanding childrens development through their drawings/paintings and am specialised in children with behavioural problems.
I treat every child that comes here as a part of the family, and the children do feel at home after a while. We create a very loving and homely environment in which each child can blossom and learn.

Zainab and her family provided safe and excellent child care for my daughter regularly over the last 5years. She is a responsible wonderful and caring child minder .I felt Zainab fully appreciated the challenges faced by working parents and helped us out even at last minute request for childcare and was always flexible with timings.My daughter always felt at home with Zainab and her family.As parents we felt reassured that our daughter was in safe hands and looked after by Zainab. We would have really struggled with childcare without Zainab’s support. A big thank you to Zainab for all her help and support over all these years.

Zainab and team have been nothing short of brilliant since my two children started in their care. Having been with a couple of childminders previously it was clear that they were not able to provide the level of care required for my children. They were coming home unhappy and would cry intensely before we dropped them off. We found Zainab and team and from the first moment it was clear that my children are happy in their care. They look forward to going now which is excellent to see. There development has also come along at a very good rate which shows the children are continually learning in the setting. I would 100% recommend Zainab.

My son was unsettled at the time due to us moving new to the area and needed the extra time and comforting environment to settle in.
All staff have been fantastic with helping him settle in. All the nice comments my son came home mentioning about the great day he had. And fun activities he had done.
Also he has gained an appetite for a variety of different foods which he has kindly been encouraged to try at lunch time with his friends. :) impressed!

All round i am very happy with the full care from zainab and the team. !!!!!

I highly recommend zainab. My little girl loves going to play and has learnt so many new things in the time she has been going. I was very wary at first as I had never used a childminder before but zainab kept me up to date on things that was going on and also sent pictures of what bethany had been doing that week. Very flexible and also took bethany to school as well as having her during the school holidays.

As a working parent it's never easy to leave our kids elsewhere but Iris made my children adapt very smoothly to this new situation making me more relaxed and with the certainty that they are being good taken care off. Plus the flexibility she offers I couldn't be more happy. Feel very lucky to have found her.
