About Me

I’m proud to say that we have been rated Good by OFSTED’s recent visit
We have vacancies for the 30 /15 hours funding and also vacancies for Saturdays and over night care.
My name is Meissa I’m a OFSTED registered childminder , working from my home with two assistants and live in a large 3 bedroom house in Enfield area ( EN1 ) , with my husband who’s working in a school as a facilities manager and my two adorable children , my son is 9 years old and my little girl 7 years old , both are full time at school . We have a large enclosed garden ,with a large selection of outdoor and indoor toys , cars, bikes, slide,trikes, balls, scoops and balls and an activity table.
I have a wealth of experience working with children and use this to provide a high standard of care, according to the EYFS Framework.
I strive to offer experiences, activities and opportunities that provide the best possible learning outcomes for each individual child in my care, moving them on from where they are and adapting my practice according to how they choose to learn and achieve.
Alongside this, I make it a priority to communicate with parents, through daily discussion, diaries and shared planning. This ensures every child feels loved, valued, safe and secure- which is the best possible environment to have fun and promote effective learning and development.
We do lots of lovely activities, planned round a half termly theme, which cover the seven learning areas of the EYFS. These include art and craft activities, painting, sticking, cooking, visits to local parks, the library, singing and rhymes, musical instruments and movement, dance, imaginary play, sand, water, etc.
We also visit a local playgroup and farm center on a weekly basis. Your child will also have the opportunity to socialize in a smaller group of children of varying ages, building on their confidence, social skills and communication and language, also I'm fluent in 3 languages ARABIC and FRENCH
I provide breakfast , lunch and dinner (HAlAL Food )and of course snacks ; organic food and daily cooked
I enjoy cooking , baking , going out , cycling , walking , parks, farm, soft play , dancing , singing, be happy and healthy ; and your child will have the opportunity to do them in my setting . I’m a member of Pacey childcare insurance specialist.

Meissa has been looking after my twins for a few years now. And what an amazing job she has done. Herself, assistant and family have left footprints in our hearts. From the first time I saw herself and her beautiful clean, loving home, I could only describe as a happy environment that I knew my children would love. Her presence can fill a room with joy. The smell of freshly cooked food ( which my children loved) could be smelt upon pick up, as she opened the door. My children always came out smiling, happy and full of stories about their exciting day. And they would come out clean, so even down to hygiene, she is spot on!! The activities she does with the little ones, amazes me. She has even taught me a thing or 2. And she is so good at giving advice!! She has a wide range of activities and does her upmost to make sure the kids will not be bored. They also learn through play. I have definitely seen the confidence boost the twins have had within themselves. Which has made it easy to start nursery and now reception. The beautiful bond all the children have can only be because of how herself and assistant interact with the children, despite the different age groups, every child is sure to cared for appropriately. From trips to the parks, softplay, farm or even pool days in her garden, I feel she is full of adventures that the children will enjoy. I can not praise them enough for the amazing service they provide. The reassurance they all give to us parents, is superb. It's a shame the children at her setting can not write a review, because I know even they will tell you how much they enjoy being at her setting. Thank you Meissa and her assistant and even her family for all that you guys have done. You have definitely reassured my confidence in childminders. Excellent service, even though to her it's not even like a job, she is naturally just a warming compassionate beautiful woman who just loves to see little ones grow into beautiful clever little children. To make them happy and confident is what she finds rewarding, as for any parent, this is what we want. Excellent brilliant fantastic!! 10/10 Thank you!!!

Since Jamie started at Meissa's setting at 8 months old, we never looked back. At our first meeting we could tell her passion for looking after children was genuine, she welcomed us in her setting as first time parents, worried about leaving our precious baby with someone we didn't know. Day after day, she proved she could not only be a fantastic Childminder, but a great Teacher and a invaluable support system for both Jamie and us.
Jamie bloomed in front of our eyes, both physically and mentally, he was never bored of the activities she gave him and made great friends with all the children, including Meissa's children, that Jamie love like his brother and sister. The nutritious and various meals she cooked from scratch, every day, are definitely one of the reasons Jamie is not a picky eater, he loved Meissa's cooking!
In the three years we've been with Meissa, she has always been positive and forthcoming if anything came up that needed sorting, she's been incredible when our youngest son was born, and we're gutted we moved away and we can't continue our journey with her as our Childminder for our second born.
She will always be part of our family, we will always be grateful to have had her in our life, and we miss her dearly.
To every parent out there, if you ever manage to get a place with Meissa, you'll be the happiest parents in the world.

Meissa is a lovely lady who is a natural with children. She looks after my son during the day three days a week and my daughter after school the same three days. I've honestly never seen them so happy and settled before! My daughter has mild ASD and Meissa is great at reassuring her when she gets anxious and my son used to be quite clingy but is now so contented. :-)
They have the best time at Meissa's house, they eat well (she is a great cook), have lots of fun and never want to leave!!! I also feel completely comfortable that they are being safely cared for whilst I'm at work and they are learning lots of new things as well. I'm so glad we found her! xxx

I was very anxious leaving my son, but meissa made it a lot easier. Shes like a second mom to him. Fola never wants to leave. I particularly liked the fact that he always has homemade food for lunch. She also picks up my other son from school once in a while which is a big help to me. They absolutely adore her. I never have to worry when am at work because i know hes in good hands. Her house is got lots of space and spotless.
