We placed our 2.5 year old son with Sobia for 3 full days a week, for about 7 weeks. She looked after him very well, followed our regime on feeding and naps, and communicated with us well. In general she was very professional. She had to miss a few days of childcare for reasons outside her control, which I know she was very unhappy at having to do; she made these days up to us.

Has been my pleasure to provide care for you and thanks for a great review Sobia xx

My twin girls were supposed to be looked after by Sobia but only had time for a few settling in session before the Covid-19 pandemic hit and all childcare closed.

However, we were in contact for several months before that and built up great rapport, Sobia was always clear and professional, and made sure all our questions were answered. She wanted to know all the routines, food preferences etc to make sure the girls had an easy transition into the setting. During the settling in sessions it was clear that Sobia quickly developed a loving and caring relationship with my girls, who are quite shy with non-family members.

Unfortunately, I was just made redundant and we're now planning a move, and we can't continue our sessions with Sobia. We are certain we would have had a great working relationship with her if this pandemic had not gotten in the way, and would recommend her to anyone wanting a professional and caring childminder.

Sobia looked after our little boy 4-days a week for two years (aged 1 – 3).  We were always totally confident in her care.  Our son settled with her straight away was always pleased to go.  She has a really warm, caring approach and she has two really nice children of her own, which makes for a lovely family atmosphere.  And, of course, we wouldn’t have kept our son with her for so long if we hadn’t been happy!

(Note: we sent our own food for dietary reasons but Sobia's food always looked really good.)

Sobia has been looking after our daughter for around six months now and it’s been a fantastic experience. Our daughter loves her time with her and has come on a huge amount in her development in that time as well as making loads of friends. Sobia always acts very professionally and we trust her with our daughter, with food, activities napping etc. We’re altogether very pleased.

Our daughter, now 2, has been going to Sobia's at least twice per week for 6 months. She will begin 3 days per week this month, and I think she will adjust just fine. From the beginning, she has been very excited to go into Sobia's home, and barely says goodbye at drop off. She's seen a few friends come and go with natural turn over, but also has had some steady playmates throughout this time, and is creating nice bonds with them. Sobia is loving, kind, and she has a natural way with the children. Our daughters happiness tells us all we need to know. It's also incredibly convenient that she provides healthy food and nappies during her time there. We're very happy with our care and plan to continue on there!
