About Me

My name is Imane Nassiri I am a fully registered childminder with the SCSWIS (formerly known as Care Commission) fully Insured and a member of the Scottish Childminding Association (SCMA).

I have a very happy and outgoing personality and also very proud to become childminder as it can be a challenging transition from full time mother to an amazing work which I have always love to do. I am a child-loving person who has so much passion for kids. I love being around with children and always happy to help them.

As I speak fluent Arabic, barber and some French I am more than happy to explore the mother tongue of children from different nationalities to encourage each child to feel confident about their identity. Also it would be useful to create stimulating activities.

My home located in an excellent location which is very close to public amenities such as the Library, Local Parks and other local attractions . I provide a warm, safe, welcoming and friendly environment and promote children's learning and development by organizing and providing a variety of outdoor activities such as visiting the parks, having picnic and indoor activities such as painting, drawing, and educational toys for children of all ages.

I am happy to fulfil any requests a parent requires individually for their child as needed with flexibility.

I have a full clean UK driving license, and I am insured to transport children in my car.

Imane has been looking after our two year old for over six months now. We were a bit worried how she would be as she was so used to a nursery setting, but we can honestly say that Madeleine settled in straight away and always has a great time. Imane always makes sure our daughter has her meals at regular times, naps through the day if she needs it and has activities planned so she is always occupied. When we drop her off she happily waves us goodbye and when we pick her up she is always full of energy and very happy. Imane does an outstanding job looking after our daughter and has made our life so much easier, we both work weekends and my husband works late evenings so it's a relief to know we can schedule childcare with someone so reliable and accommodating. Would highly recommend to anyone with children of any age!

I needed someone to look after my daughter on the 1st of January as unexpectedly I had to go to work. Imane agreed to stay with my 3-year-old on a short notice. When we arrived at her place to meet, my daughter literally didn't want to leave. Imane has a very warm personality, big smile and good experience with childcare. Also, she has a really nice daughter that was a great company for mine. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone, nor to ask her for help in the future.

My experience started over 2 years ago. I was quite nervous to find another childminder for my son, starting nursery at the age 3 as he had another childminder from a baby up till 3 years. finding someone close and would work around nursery times and someone that I could trust I thought would be tough but this wasn't the case. I met with imane and we easily got on and new she would be perfect for my son. It's a lovely cozy home, many things to keep kids entertained and a very calming atmosphere. Imane her self seemed like a very caring friendly and honest person and being her mother herself shared the same values as I do. Over the two years imane has been truly amazing, rhys my son grew a great bond with imane and her daughter. He went many places like to the beach, different parks, the library, soft play he was always entertained and was so happy to talk about his adventures when he came home, if rhys was happy that made me happy ?. At imanes home imane and rhys would make crafts, draw paintings and take part in educational activities ( I would love the things rhys would come home with ?) still keep them in a box. Rhys has come a long way over the 2 years, now started school and that's with the help of imane. A big Thankyou, and we miss you ? and I recommend her to any of you looking for a similar person like I did as she will never let you down.

On our first visit to IMANE house we instantly felt very welcomed and comfortable & my husband & I knew instantly that this was the place for our daughter.
I have been extremely happy with the service IMANE provides. Her home is always welcoming, very clean and well organised.she is warm and friendly, she provides a wide range of fun activities including plenty of outdoor exercise. All the children enjoy game play, drawing and sticking, reading and puzzles to name but a few; as well as daily outings to the park and playtime in the woods. NACIRI encourages good behaviour,and ensures good personal hygiene for all children to wash hands after visiting the toilet.

She is exceptional because she manages to combine a warm and nurturing environment with exciting and stimulating activities on a daily basis where my daughter ELISIE feels really confident and loved.
I cannot imagine anyone else looking after my daughter ELISE

I would highly recommend NACIRI to anyone who wants a loving, caring, experienced, stimulating and 'home from home' environment for their child. We hope that they will always be a part of our lives.

I was up performing at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and the last two nights I was stuck for a minder for my 9 month old son. I'd had my son looked after by a friend up until then, and she was no longer available. I panicked a bit because I've only ever left my son with close family and a couple of lovely friends who I knew would not neglect him. I had no option but to look online last minute and see who might take him for a few hours each night. I came across Imane who had lots of good reviews, which I thought was the best way of judging her child skills. After a chat we set up a meeting place and within moments I knew he was in safe hands. Imane introduced me to her very sweet little daughter and I went away to my show feeling nervous of course but trusting. When I collected him from Imane's home he was soundly sleeping and it was lovely and quiet at her place. Everything felt very calm and gentle. I felt so happy when I took my son back to our hotel and he woke up very content. No sobbing or anything. The next day we did the same time and meeting and this time I had no worries. Imane was so lovely. I knew my son was gowing to be taken care of, fed and changed. I would definitely use her again when I'm next up. Thank you very much Imane. Look forward to the next time!
