About Me

My name is Yasmeen. I am a registered childminder with The Care inspectorate. I now have an assistant working with me. I am also registered to provide overnight care. I live with my mother and my two girls Aisha who is 9 years old and Sara who is 6 years old. I am already involved in school and nursery runs and happy to take on a few more. I was working as a childminder in partnership with my friend who is also a registered childminder with the Care inspectorate. We both provided the service at her house. Unfortunately things did not work out so we decided to finish the partnership but to continue to provide the service at our own homes. I have now been providing a childminding service from my own home for a year.
I was enrolled on the BSC Orthoptics course at Glasgow Caledonian University in September 2014. Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances I had to withdraw from it. I already hold a BSC in Ophthalmic Dispensing.
I decided to do childminding as it will give me time with my daughters as well as other children, and use my expertise to help them in their stages of education and learning.

My Experience

My experience with children is first of all I have two beautiful daughters of my own. I now have been childminding for a year and have a lot of experience with a variety of age groups. I also help out friends who require childcare while they are working. I have been told that they are at peace of mind when they leave their children with me. They are happy to provide references if required. I have looked after my sisters children even before my own children so I have experience with children from birth. I love looking after children and watching them play. I am caring and hardworking by nature. My aim is to give a professional, reliable and quality childminding service. I will provide the children in my care with a supervised environment that is safe, warm and centered to their needs. I will be offering appropriate and varied experiences that support the development of the children in my care. I love making children happy and enjoy seeing the smiles on their faces. I personally think it’s the environment you create and how the children are cared for that’s important.

I have a very large garden which is enclosed from both entrances. It recently has had work done in it to make it safe and appealing for children.

I believe organisation is very important. I am a very organised person. I plan my day with the children well in advance taking into consideration the age groups. I make sure I have a variety of activities planned for the day involving some learning as well as lots of fun and trips to the park, library and soft play centres.

My journey through education from primary school right through to university has given me very good experience in how to use my knowledge to teach children thorough there learning years. It gives me great pleasure to be able to put my knowledge to good use to teach children aswell as care for them and make learning great fun!

I am so glad that I found Yasmeen. My son went to nursery to begin with, and came home with one thing after another and was not eating or sleeping properly there. I decided in February to change to a childminder and have not looked back. My only regret is I did not send him there in the first place.

He receives fantastic care and I feel like he is part of a little family when he goes there. He loves Yasmeen's girls and I feel it is so good for him to be around the mixed age groups. He is really learning from the older kids.

Yasmeen is so flexible and approachable, always eager to do the best for my child. Yasmeen is very good at dealing with any medical issues as well which means I can go to work feeling reassured my child is receiving the best care.
My son always comes home fed, slept-well, clean and happy.

There are so many toys to play with and the garden is amazing - she seems to have everything to suit the different age groups. The kids always look like they are having so much fun.

I would not hesitate to recommend Yasmeen, I am so grateful I found her.

We are lucky to have such a great childminder in Yasmeen at Cheeky Treasures.

She has proved herself to be very reliable, kind and understanding towards the needs of our child. She always organises great activities, so your child will never be bored.

Our son is always happy to to be left in her care, which is always a plus point for any parent.

Any time that he is with Yasmeen, we know that he is in a safe environment and having fun.

I would recommend Cheeky Treasures without hesitation.

My 16 month old son loves going to Yasmeen's 2 days a week. He settled in straight away and loves the day to day activities. Being in Yasmeens care has been total peace of mind, and i can go to work a very happy mother, i am extremly grateful for all the help she has provided. My son has his own little notebook of his days activites which makes me feel involved. I couldnt recommend Cheeky Treasures enough and Yasmeens two girls are the nicest children you could ever meet.

Yasmeen has been taking care of our kid for almost 3 months now. Initially, we were reluctant to send our little girl to a childminder but we heard good feedback from other parents and thought of giving it a go. We could clearly see the visible positive differences in few weeks. Yasmeen understands individual needs of children as our daughter was eating better and was happy to be there. Yasmeen pays attention to eating habits and encourages children to eat healthy and try new things like more veggies?. It’s a big house for kids to play around and she has lovely backyard with swings and slides. She engages kids in creative and fun activities. We always found other kids happy and taken care of when we picked up our kid. Yasmeen clearly communicates everything and understands what parents expect – be it what they ate or played or pickup and drop arrangement changes. We feel safe when our wee one is with Yasmeen and would recommend her services to others.

Yasmeen has been looking after my nearly 9 month old daughter Robyn for 2 months now. Robyn goes at the weekends and yasmeen comes and picks her up from castlemilk and picks me up from work with my daughter at the end of the day, which is so helpful for me. Robyn is so comfortable going with yasmeen and is always happy, her house is very spaceious with a garden and is well equipped for children of all ages. yaameen is a very caring and kind lady and she has build up a good relationship with my daughter, I feel safe leaving her and would highly recommend Yasmeen's services to all parents :)
