Zainab is a very caring and lively person who is very flexible with everyone's needs. She dealt so well with my extremely upset son (14 mo) who then struggled settling in a busy nursery. She made him feel so comfortable and calmed him down in her quiet home setting in just less than 3days which I think is a great achievement. Thanks again for all your hard work and compassion.

Zainab was very professional and put all my worries to rest when we needed emergency childcare with our regular Nanny having a baby. All the kids there seemed happy, comfortable and always playing when I got in to pick my baby.

Thanks Again Zainab for taking us on at such short notice and for the care you gave Isabella. Will highly recommend and contact you if the need ever arises!

I know Zainab when she took art classes for kids and my daughter enjoyed it a lot. When I found Zainab on this website as a registered Childminder I didn't hesitate to contact her as I knew my daughter will be in safe hands.
Zainab has been Ishanvi's Childminder for past one year now and I am pretty confident we will be using her services for a long time.

Zainab provides excellent childcare. She is reliable, fun loving and hard working. She has always bought a professional, thoughtful, organised and expert approach to the care of my child. Her home is always welcoming and clean, and her home-cooked meals as my daughter describes are delicious!

She is extremely accommodating, especially with my long working hours, she even helps with home pick up /drop off and at times even looked after my sick child when I was urgently needed at work which is added advantage for working parents like myself.

She plans various fun activities and day outing with the kids over school holidays.

Beyond all this, it is Zainab's warm and friendly but no-nonsense approach which sets her apart from other childminders I have experienced. I will 100% recommend her services

My 8 months old baby has been going to Zainab for the last 6 weeks and has settled very quickly to Zainab's homely and warm environment. Zainab provides daily reviews of his activity which I find very helpful and communicates promptly any queries and issues. It is very evident that Zainab is an experienced childminder and knows how to mind for babies as per their needs. I am very happy that she was also able to accommodate my baby at short notice.

My son has been going to Zainab for over 6 months now and I am very pleased with how well he has settled in and how comfortable he is with her. Zainab is very caring and looks after him very well. She helps with finding his lost stuff from school and conveys any messages to and from the teachers. He is really happy when he is there and I am extremely reassured and pleased with that.
