Deepika is a professional child minder who is child centered and caring , my son has been with Deepika since January 2019 he is was approx 8months , Deepika planned the settling in according to his needs, taken into account my anxieties as a parent returning to work, whilst being considerate of all of the children in her setting. Deepika ensure she became familiar with his routine and was/is respectful of my way of parenting and what is important to me as a mother.
Deepika is a first rate child minder, my son is always smiling and happy to be left in her care, he is taken on outings, introduce to new resources daily and encouraged to follow a routine. All of the children in her setting are well behaved . I have had no concerns since he has been in her care, Deepika is always informative and her communication is excellent always giving me time to speak about any issues I or she may half, Deepika is respectful of parents opinions.
First rate child care!
It’s always an extremely careful task when deciding what is the best childcare option to go with. We explored numerous options but knew we wouldn’t settle on anywhere until we knew it was the best possible fit for our 1 year old. After Depu was recommended to us we visited her and immediately felt comfortable with her approach, as did our boy. We couldn’t have made a better choice, he truly enjoys his time there. He’s made wonderful relationships with the other children and it is more like a home from home than anything else, exactly what we wanted. Depu is so considerate of all his needs, always taking extra care with his foods as he’s intolerant to some. It’s so important to us to have someone we trust looking after him. We couldn’t imagine him being anywhere else.
My daughter who is now 4 years old has been with Deepika since 1.5 years of age. My daughter LOVES her. Whenever I drop my daughter off to Deepika my daughter is smiling, laughing and hugging Deepika. Before going to sleep my daughter always asks if the next day we will go to Deepika’s house. That is how much my daughter is attachted to Deepika. Talking about my daughter’s development, Deepika plays a massive part in it. My daughter has learnt not only to be polite saying words like ‘pardon me’, ‘no, thank you’, ‘yes, please’ but also she constantly learns letters and numbers. My daughter can spell her full name as well as write it. Additionally, she learnt almost all of the alphabet and can count.
At Deepika’s the kids are always learning new nursery rhymes. Doing all sorts of crafting for various celebrations which my daughter really enjoys. Deepika and kids spend a lot of time outside. They go to the farm, parks, playground and other places always exploring new things. Moreover, Deepika always encourages my daughter to be as independant as possible doing such things like putting on clothes, going to the toilet, tyding up etc. Although Deepika is a loving childminder, she can be firm too if needed. If kids are misbehaving she will tell them that they should not behave like that and they would listen to her.
Therefore, for anyone who is looking for childminder, Deepika is the best and that is exactly why my daughter is still with her.
Deepika has been looking after my daughters for almost 2 years now and i can confidenly say she is doing an extremly great job caring for them everyday. I go to work knowing my kids are in competent hands hence i do not worry about them not being cared for while am away. My children enjoy every day they spends at her place and it has become a second home to them. Am particularly impressed with Deepika helping my 2 yr old identify Alphabeths, numbers and spellings and also helping my 6yr old with her writting and reading.
She is friendly, very professional and the children she looks after loves her. She has been of great support to my family and I highly recommend her.
I was in need of childcare again and so I returned to Depu. My daughter has made a massive improvement with her talking and her confidence around other children. Depu is always motivated and always does the best to make sure the kids have fun and don’t miss out on activities. Depu has been so supportive of my circumstances and very understanding which is why I would always recommend her. The kids all get along so well with her and are always excited to go to her.
