I have known Rakshitha as my childminder since 2014 when she started to look after my 10 months old daughter Mayra. Mayra was with her for more than 2 years. It was heart breaking for us to leave Rakshitha.
As a parents we were looking for homely environment and special care. We found Rakshitha very caring and homely & professional. My daughter got settled so easily with her. I have always liked the way that Rakshitha promotes healthy eating. Rakshitha has loads of toys and a safe environment for children of all ages at her home. Rakshitha plans loads of activities with kids to keep them busy.
Mayra was so fussy in eating but Rakshitha always made sure that she is having her food. There used to be days in a week where Mayra did not want to eat at all. Rakshitha made sure that she is feeding Mayra by herself so that Mayra is not hungry.
Mayra was so settled with Ira (Rakshitha’s daughter) and both used to love playing.
Rakshitha gives you lots of information at the end of the day concerning what your child has done, whether they have slept and how they have eaten and the children love looking back at the photos she takes.

I would absolutely recommend Rakshitha as a great and reliable child minder I have been extremely happy with the care Mayra has received

Aarav was just 11 months old when my wife joined work again after maternity break. We started sending him to a nearby nursery at Bedfont. As a concerned parents we subscribed to the nursery web cam to watch our child while we were at office. We observed that our child was not given personal attention he needed during that initial setting phase. The nursery was clearly understaffed where they had merged infants and toddler rooms on ground floor keeping the first floor closed. We were desperately searching for an alternative..

We were glad we moved Aarav to Rakshitha's 'Cuddle n Care' ( as it was called then). The setup was small with only 4 children including their lovely daughter Ira. She employed an assistant to help her so it was one staff per two children. Her home was kept neat and tidy and the stairs secured by child gates. Although her child care was not very local to us we didn't mind driving there as Aarav was happy again. He enjoyed the home cooked and nutritious meals throughout the day. He also enjoyed playing with children in the garden. Whenever the weather permitted Rakshitha took children to near by park and soft play area that was big advantage over day nurseries. She also kept us up to date with photos of Aarav during the day (via Whatsapp).

We are glad that Aarav received great care at such a young age and are happy to recommend her for her great child minding...

I am writing this review to express how fantastic Rakshitha as child-minder. My Daughter Sukhi started with Rakshitha just after her first birthday and that was the first time she was away from me and Sukhi settled so well within no time
Rakshitha is thoughtful, caring, insightful, supportive and dedicated and we all love her and feel so lucky to have her looking after Sukhi.
Rakshitha provides a great range of activities and tailors them to each child. Sukhi enjoyed all the activities. She takes kids to play ground or picnics based on the weather.
I should mention about her daughter Ira. She is so good and well-mannered kid. She played so well with other kids. Sukhi and Ira are still the best friends ? (well I should say sister)
Rakshitha cooks well diet food for the kids and sukhi enjoyed a lot.
She maintains a daily for the activities and progress of the kid. She use to share photos and video of the activities which made us stay connected with Sukhi.
Sukhi had tough time with her afternoon nap as she had never gone to sleep with anyone else apart from me. We are so very thankful to Rakshitha that she took extra effort and made sukhi nap in afternoon.
I would recommend Rakshitha to working parents that need someone who is experienced, reliable, professional, straightforward, and flexible.
