About Me

I am a 34 year friendly and vibrant woman who has a passion for working with children and love sharing in a child’s development; seeing them excel and flourish and knowing that you have influenced and helped them.

I am open minded, flexible and always undertaking relevant training courses to enhance personal development and use the knowledge gained to benefit my setting and the progress of the children.

My Experience

I have been a qualified teaching assistant for seven years and I have excellent experience working with children between 0-11years. Whilst working in schools I have gained a lot of experience working with age groups from age three to eleven.

In my experiences working in schools I have taken part in lots of small group work and as a result I have been able to build relationships with the children and am sensitive to their needs. I have worked well with adult in every school I have been to. I am humble and willing to be corrected when I am wrong. I have excellent communication skills, am flexible and adaptable; I find these characteristics ensure that I am able to work well with both children and adult.

As a teaching assistant I have looked after and worked with many children, including siblings and children with Special Educational Needs.

As a child-minder, I follow the Early Years Foundation Stage framework.

My aim is to provide high quality, affordable childcare in a relaxed and caring home environment.

I am a big believer in encouraging children to become independent, which builds on their self-esteem and helps their development improve further.

I offer a very flexible service, accommodating earlier mornings and later evenings, school holidays, etc. I am currently opened Monday to Friday from 7am to 6pm.

A2Zi Child Care is close to East Croydon station and 1min from Lebanon Tram stop. Buses 119,466and 198 route, labanon road bus stop. I offer a friendly, safe, comfortable and fun environment for your child to thrive, our commitment is to give children the opportunities to develop and explore whilst in our care and endeavour to nurture their enthusiasm for new experiences along with interaction with other children.

My little one has been to Zi for a while now and she is absolute life saver. She is friendly and accomodating, the enviroment is great as the kids learn so many new things a day and get to try new foods which is amazing. My little one gets to socialize a lot and has quite a few friends.

I found Zi on Childcare.co.uk she was one of the first childminders to reply to my request. When myself and my (now year old) son visited Zi for the first time, it was as though he had known Zi and her children for all his life and he settled in straight away. She always provides a range of activities for the children. Zi is always very efficient and thorough as well as being extremely professional, with her background and qualifications, it no wonder that Zi is so good at what she does. An absolute Godsend!

Zii and her team are kind, caring and compassionate. My daughter has thrived and blossomed under her guidance. She is an absolute diamond and we are very lucky to have her.

I chose A2Zi 9 months
ago. Zi has a really lovely manner with all the children in her care. She is always kind, calm and patient with them and my son is happy there. I also liked the fact my son gets the advantage of going to the toddler groups . Zi regularly takes the children to the park and in the garden. 

Since my son has been going to Zi we have been reassured that we made absolutely the right choice. My son is so happy there and I’ve been impressed by the variety of toys that A2Zi has . I’ve really seen my son progress since he spent time with Zi and the other children in her care. While he is pleased to see me at the end of the day my son is never desperate to go home and always arrives at A2Zi with a smile.

Whenever I’ve visited A2Zi I’ve seen all the children happily and safely engaged. I’ve always felt very comfortable to ask questions about my son and his day. I highly recommend A2Zi.

My child has been with this childminder for nearly 3 months and from day one he was and still is very happy. She is very attentive to the children she looks after and makes sure that their time with her is fun fun fun! I know that my child is safe with this childminder and all his needs are met which makes me a happy and less worried mum.
