Our daughter has been with Sufia for the last year and a half after starting at her setting when she had just turned 1.

We could not have hoped for a more caring and considerate child minder. It is like dropping her off each day with family.

She does a lot of varied activities including occasional day trips to the local park. There's lots of arts and crafts and play time in the garden which was important to us.

Sufia's food is incredible (we were lucky to try it on a number of occasions!) So we are very jealous of the children getting to eat that everyday. Our daughter has some food intolerances so these are also taken into consideration by Sufia.

Despite the pandemic Sufia's child care continued throughout with great communication.

I can't recommend Sufia highly enough to anyone looking for a caring child minder in East London.

Sufia is a truly excellent childminder and i would highly recommend her. The care and attention she provides for my little one is incredible. After having a terrible exeperience with nursery when my son was aged 13 months I was recommended Sufia by a friend and instantly as soon as he started my mind was at ease. It was exactly what I was looking for - a warm, loving and caring environment where my little one is made to feel part of the family, whom I have to mention are absolutely lovely. Sufia has a big house with a lovely playroom for the kids that's super clean and has a great range of toys and a large garden. The food she provides is amazing and I know my child is always well fed. She has even helped my son to start toilet training. My son spends most of his week with Sufia and the other children and I have noticed him gain in confidence and learn so many things since he has started such as good manners, how to be kind, considerate and gentle towards others etc 
. Sufia is highly professional, organised and provides detailed daily updates at the end of the day. The kids learn through play and she tries to encourage kids to do what interests them. During the summer the kids had so much fun in the garden with the outdoor pool and garden toys. She has a large variety of educational toys and my son is learning so fast.. We don't have any family in the area so I don't know where I would have been without her when returning to work. She is also as accomodating as possible. I would consider yourself lucky if you are able to send your little one here as the care is really is above and beyond all expectations!

My 3 year old son has been at Sufia’s for over a year now and we couldn’t be more thrilled with how happy he is there.

My son started there just before he turned 2 and has been struggling with his speech and language. I voiced my concerns to Sufia quite early on and I have been blown away with how she has worked with him and us. She works closely with him and feedbacks to us on a daily basis. Since joining, his speech has come a long way and I know it’s because of the play and activities Sufia provides for the children.

Sufia also provides a range of fantastic meals that I never thought my son would eat! It’s because of her, he now experiments more with his foods. I couldn’t be happier!

Not only is she professional in her manner but she is extremely caring. I couldn’t recommend this place enough.

We started our daughter in a nursery initially - but quite quickly realised that setting was not what we wanted.

We wanted someone who would develop a close relationship with our daughter and both of us. A setting where there wouldn’t be a time limit on outside play. Someplace with tasty and healthy food. Someplace that she would be looked after but not just a number. Sufia has ticked all these and more.

Sufia is amazing- Kind, thoughtful and puts the kids she looks after first. My daughter is amazingly well looked after. She has fun and is made to feel loved by Sufia, her assistants and Sufia’s daughters who also help out. The communication we have with Sufia is excellent. Always making time to tell us how our daughter has been in the day and little insights into her personality around other kids. We get photos and videos of the fun stuff she gets up to- from baking, arts and crafts and paddling in the pool on a hot summers day.

Sufia cooks amazing food - and has her own vegetable garden in the back. 100% my daughter has developed an excellent taste of variety from being with Sufia.

I cannot recommend Sufia’s childminding enough. It’s a massive FIVE stars.

My 2 year son has been looked after by Sufia for over a year.

She has a lovely manner with all the children and is always calm, kind and patient. The children including my son are very well behaved and my son loves spending his day with her.

Sufia does more then just supervise the children she provides a fun, loving, home environment with a good understanding of their needs and abilities. She encourages good manners and helps my son learn and develop through doing and talking.

Her home cooked meals are fresh, healthy and tasty! My son loves her food and always asks for more.

Some people just have a way with children and Sufia is definitely one of them. I cannot recommend her enough.
