About Me

Ofsted Good Provider Logo

My name is Reka, I live with my husband, 2 children, my mother in law and our lovely cat in Smethwick. I work with an assistant on a daily basis. I provide a gentle, loving and professional care for a variety of children. I follow the EYFS requirements for child development, I provide personalised support for each child. I have a large variety of educational toys, resources, adult and child led activities to support their learning in a fun way. I attend relevant trainings to improve the quality of my care.

We go out to local parks, libraries, farms, woods and play groups. We also do day trips occasionally.
I have a dedicate play room, large sitting room, conservatory and a good sized garden used for the children in my care.

My Experience

I have been a childminder for 6 years and I used to work as a teacher in my previous career where I had the opportunity to work with children. Having my own children gives me a lot of first hand experience as well. I come from a large family where I have always been surrounded by children. I have experience with bilingual children.

I welcome the use of washable nappies in my setting. If your child is in reusable nappies I'll be happy to accommodate it.

I have experience caring for babies, toddlers and primary age children.

My 3 year old son is always happy to see Reka.
Reka is a friendly, confident childminder, who takes good care of the little ones. Would highly recommend her.

My daughter( 10 years old) absolutely love being at Reka’s. Very professional, kind and organised. I need childcare occasionally in half terms. Reka is very flexible and understanding. Occasionally my daughter had to stay at night, I was very confident that she was in a safe place. Although my daughter is an only child and can be very shy with new people, never sleeps at her friends house either, she is very comfortable at Reka’s either for day or night stay, she loves it there.I can absolutely recommend Reka to anyone, she is the best.

My daughter (now 3) has been with Reka for just over 2 years now. She settled in really quickly and really enjoys her time there. She has built up strong relationships in this homey setting, which has been especially important during the madness of covid. Reka is really enthusiastic about all the different seasonal activities and celebrations, and has done an excellent job keeping these going through the pandemic, with really innovative solutions to keeping the children active and happy.

Reka has been childminding my daughter (15 months old) since September 2018.

I have been extremely happy with the care my daughter has received. Reka is warm and friendly. She provides a wide, fun range of activities. Reka completes an online diary detailing what my baby has done each day. From this I have a complete picture of his whole day including what he has eaten, how long he has slept and all his activities. This helps me to feel involved with her care.

I would absolutely recommend Reka as a great and reliable childminder.
