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.
Firstly I have to say that Sufias Childcare has been absolutely fantastic with helping me as a first time mum.
I initially decided that my son should attend a nursey setting, however he was feeling very unsettled and was not eating all day when he was there. As expected I was incredibly heart broken. However, my husband and I then decided to try a childminder. We went to see Sufia and her family who were incredibly welcoming and showed us exactly what the children do on a day to day. There is a lovely garden full of toys and activities which I was fond of as my son loves to be outside, and Sufia also grows her own vegetables. Most of her cuisine that she caters for the children incorporates organic home grow vegetables from her garden! The menu is varied and amazing! My son is a very picky and a fussy eater. Sufia has been persistent with his feeding which has helped me a lot at home when im with him.
My son has a routine with nap times and feeding and I was amazed how he settled very quickly into the routine Sufia had put in place for him.
I am impressed every week when he comes home with new things he learns and although he cannot talk he has shown great progress and very enthusiastic in showing me what he has learned at the childminders.
At the end of each day, we get detailed feedback with what he ate for breakfast/ lunch/ snack/ dinner amongst more. We also get photos when available.
The entire family at the childminders are very welcoming and caring towards my son and I feel at ease every time I leave him and go to work.
Thank you for being great!
I cannot rate or praise Sufia enough no matter what I write in this review; she is THAT good. I have had a lot of trouble digesting the fact that my son would need to eventually go to nursery. Every parent knows the struggle of having to leave their child on someone else's hands and Sufia knew to soothe that anxiety in me. I tried taking my child to three well established nurseries and after a few "settling in" days I was running for the mountains (fellow parents, please look around when you settle your baby - you may find your baby been fed with the same spoon as other babies and even baby medicine stored in the visitors toilet - I did in an "outstanding" rated nursery and I was horrified).
I then figured that a childminder would give my baby more attention and care and I really valued the continuation of a homely feeling for my son. Sufia provided and keeps to provide exactly that since day one. The happiness on my son's face when I drop him is remarkable and he clearly shows how annoyed he is every time I pick him up since he does not want to leave. Seeing this really alleviated any anxiety I had about leaving him with someone else and I trust that he is having a lovely time there. I can see how Sufia managed to establish a strong bond with my son and my son demonstrates the same for Sufia; what else can you ask for. I love how Sufia gives parents time to chat about their child's development and update us on what went on during the day (literally everything, from food, sleep, nappies, issues; she covers all and even follows up with a text for your records). Sufia has also been sharing so many parenting tips with me which have made a significant difference to how I cope with parenting (well I am a new mum and everything new seems scary). I have one too many things to praise Sufia on and to be honest no negatives at all. Sufia is extremely professional, she has a wonderful children's area, she keeps the number of children low enough so that she is able to really be there for the children, she has an assistant that is also very lovely, in terms of cleanliness I am very satisfied (considering my own OCD nature) and most importantly - NO nursery germs!!! We are currently in the process of looking for a new house to move at and one thing we made clear with my husband is that we are not moving anywhere too far from this childminder. I think this last statement will give you the all reassurance you need.
Sufia has been minding my daughter for the past three years and I have found her to be extremely reliable and trustworthy. I have left for work every morning knowing that she is in a caring and safe environment. Just being around Sufia's children and also the other children she looks after has benefited her enormously and I know she is fond of all of them. I have found Sufia's home to always be a pleasant, stimulating and a clean environment. Their day is filled with a wide variety of activities which helps them learn and have fun at the same time. Sufia has taken my daughter on various days out where I know and feel confident that she has been well supervised and had a lot of fun.
I have found Sufia to be an extremely capable individual. She is caring and nurturing but instilled good discipline in our daughter and has a great sense of fun. Our daughter has developed into a confident, sociable and caring individual since being under Sufia’s care. Sufia also encourages learning in a fun way. The children are well prepared in the Early Years Foundation Stage.
My daughter has started going to school since the past couple of months. During our first parent’s evening, her class teacher mentioned that my daughter’s development is at par with pupils who are a year older than her.
I have no hesitation in recommending Sufia to look after your children. I was more than satisfied with everything she did with my daughter and all the advice Sufia gave me as a first-time mother.
We are very happy with Sufia’s childminding services and we miss her and her family very much.
Sufia cared for our son from the age of 11 months until he was 2.5 years old and he has thrived during that time. With Sufia and her family's help he hit all the important milestones during this time - from walking to eating independently and many more.
When I went into labour with my second, Sufia welcomed our son early at her house and took care of him during my stay in hospital. She helped make him feel comfortable and at ease during what could have been a stressful time for him.
Before he could even speak, our son would point to the door early in the mornings to signal that he was ready to go to Sufia's.
And last but not least, our son loved Sufia's home-cooked lunches and dinners. Not even my own cooking can compete now!
I cannot thank Sufia enough for her outstanding care and support.
As a first time parent you can find parenthood pretty challenging. Sufia has helped us go through this process smoothly and encouraging. She provided the best possible care and early education.
Thank you once again for helping my child grow.
