About Me

Hi my name is Suki and I am an OFSTED registered childminder.

I run a lovely little setting in Old Trafford, not far from the city centre. I have a kind, caring personality and adore looking after my little minded people. I offer a warm, clean, comfortable, pet free, smoke free home from home environment and can provide healthy snacks and lunches.

I have a dedicated playroom for childminding which is full of different resources and a lovely outdoor space for play and learning.

We attend toddler and baby groups within the community, have fun and picnics at the park and enjoy visiting local libraries and museums.

I have a wonderful rapport with the children I mind and their parents and always look to parents for guidance in looking after their little ones.

I have completed required Paediatric 1st aid training and Introduction to Safeguarding, designated officer (safeguarding) training and Food Safety courses, hold an enhanced CRB and have completed a Level 3 NVQ in Childcare, Learning and Development, “Marvellous maths” and "I can talk" communication and language courses.

Out little boy has been looked after by Suki from 11 months old, starting during the pandemic and not long after lockdown. He had never been left with anyone else. Suki was fantastic at helping Max adjust and settle in whilst reassuring us at the same time. Max is nearly 2 now and loves being looked after by Suki. Her family have welcomed him with open arms and it has been a safe, consistent environment for him to grow in and have lots of fun too. Suki is very reliable, responsive to our questions and suggestions and keeps us updated with pictures and videos daily. Her reliability has been invaluable to us - we can always count on her. We really can't thank her and her family enough and i would recommend her to anyone looking for a childminder.

Thank you Katherine! Max has been a lovely little boy to take care of, I will miss him very much.

My daughter was minded by Suki for over a year and we are very thankful for the nurture and care she provided. My daughter’s temperament was sensitive, perceptive and strong willed. She did not settle at her previous childcare setting and this was very stressful for us as a family. However when she went to Suki’s we were put so much at ease as we knew that Suki’s would provide the patience, love and understanding needed to help our little one feel at ease. Through time at Suki’s she came out of her shell and we saw a marked difference in how happy she was while we were at work. Suki has an in-depth understanding of child development and uses this to adapt to the needs of each child. She provides stimulating things for them to do and offers a range of nutritious meals. Suki works with the family and sends lovely photos and videos through the day. We love that Suki provides a natural home environment for little kids. Trusting someone with your child is a big decision and we are so happy to have had Suki for the formative years of our children’s lives.

Thank you so much Laura! Your daughter was an absolute pleasure to look after. We absolutely adored both her and her brother (but you knew that already) and we were so sad to see her go - but we not only miss the children but you and Maxim too - you both are such amazing people and lovely to work with - lots of love to you all xx

Our little boy thrived in Sukis small home setting, he was thrilled to see her and never looked back when we dropped him off at the door.
Suki provided him with a warm, safe and fun home setting which was the perfect option for us when I had to return to work. We would strongly recommend Suki to any prospective parents looking for a childminder.

Awwww, thank you so much for your kind review Natalie. We absolutely loved looking after your little boy, he has such an amazing character and filled our playroom with joy, we will miss him so much!

Our daughter has been going to Suki's for just over a year and we are delighted with everything Suki does for her.
We chose a childminder over a nursery because our daughter is a shy, cautious child and we thought that the home environment would be most comfortable for her. Suki, her husband and their two sons treat our daughter like an extended family member. She goes enthusiastically into Suki's home every morning which is a huge relief and comfort to us.

Suki is intelligent and personable. She is very interested in child development and undertakes additional studies to supplement her extensive existing knowledge. She takes the children on daytrips and to local playgroups, as well as organising craft and baking activities at home. Suki provides breakfast if needed and prepares home made, healthy food at lunch time.

Suki is reliable, flexible and easy to work with. She sends us updates and pictures by Whatsapp and does all that she can to match our daughter's home routine and preferences. On the few occasions that work commitments have necessitated an earlier drop off or later pick up, Suki has been able to accommodate this, which we have appreciated tremendously.

Since our daughter started going to Suki's, we have moved to another part of Manchester which has made the commute much longer, but we wouldn't dream of changing our daughter's setting as we don't feel that we could find any provision as good as Suki's. If you have the chance to send your child to Suki's you should definitely take it.

Thank you so much Katie! Your daughter was a pleasure to look after - we miss her so much xx

Suki is an absolutely wonderful childminder. She has looked after our daughter for well over a year now and we couldn't be happier. Suki has a loverly clean and tidy house packed with toys, which she rotates depending on the age of the children she's looking after. They go on outings most days; to the library, museums, parks and playgroups. She sends updates with photos and videos throughout the day of the many activities they do. My daughter is always happy to see Suki and her family and I think that is a testiment to the relationship Suki builds with the children. Each morning my daughter bounds in without a backwards glance. Suki is very reliable; working as a hospital doctor she has being amazingly accommodating of my shift work and early drop offs. She is a truly wonderful lady and we are so lucky to have found her.
