About Me

I am an Ofsted registered childminder. I would describe myself as a really fun, bubbly, caring and passionate yet professional person. I strive for success and my aim is to ensure that the children I care for have the utmost fun through play and build on what they already know and can do. I love seeing children make new discoveries and learn new things. My positive nature allows me to encourage children to be curious and try new things that can help them reach their maximum potential. I work very closely with parents and carers to enable me to provide the best possible care.

I follow the EYFS framework and have an excellent understanding of the six areas of learning and how to support the children’s development as well as each child's starting point.

I have a well equipped separate room dedicated for the children's play, education and well being.There is also a large garden with lots of facilities such as sand and water play, playhouse and cars. I try and make excellent use of both outdoor and indoor areas to provide activities which support all areas of learning.

Being a vegetarian we tend to grow our own organic fruit and vegetables which the children love participating in.

I love cooking so naturally the children get home cooked food. I also love baking and there have been many times that children have joined in the bake off!

My Experience

Sima was very welcoming and made us feel very comfortable the first time we met her. She cared for our 1 year old son very well and taught him to become a confident and independent toddler.

Our son was very shy and didn't take to new people but Sima and her family treated him like their own. She kept us updated on his progress during the day and made us feel very comfortable.

She provided interesting learning activities for our son during the day and kept him well entertained in a very clean environment.

I would definately recommend her. We will truly miss her.

Look no further. Sima is one of the best childminders you will ever find!
There are no words to describe how great she has been for both my daughters; they have been staying with Sima since they've started to walk, and she has always been there for them and me! She is a super friendly, open-minded person and a very professional childminder at the same time.
She was amazing with my two daughters (making their birthdays special, baking, gardening and having lots of activities throughout the day).
I feel fortunate to have found her close to our home. She and her family will always be part of our family.

Response by Avatar for Sima Sima on 17/05/2021:

Thank you so much for your kind words Vita. We love the girls to bits and as you know you all have become part of our family. xx

Want to start by saying I love Sima and her family sooo much, Sima has come to my rescue several times and my son adores her too.
She’s literally the best child minder EVER - so caring, bubbly and positive!
I was nervous at first because my son has never been with a child minder, but he settled sooo well with Sima; she treated him as if he was her own and always made sure that he was OK, especially as my son has eczema and other problems - she was always on top of that and gave me an in-depth review of how his day went. I’ll miss her so much and her family, as will my son. I wish her the best for the future and I’ll definitely stay in touch. I recommend her a thousand times!
Thank you Sima 🙏🏿❤️

What can I say - The experience has been nothing short of amazing. My husband and I were reluctant at first to seek a childminder for our 16 month old daughter and 3 year old son, as they have never before been in the care of anyone outside the family.

However, since taking up Sima's services, our daughter's speech and communication has improved dramatically, and our son just can't get enough of playtime and activities with her group.

The children have both developed this strong bond with Sima that makes us as parents feel assured and happy that they are comfortable and well taken care of.

Our jobs can be very demanding at times and may require a few overtime. This has not been a problem for us as Sima has been very flexible and is always ready to go above and beyond for her clients.

I would recommend her service to anyone, anytime...
