About Me

I'm 43 years old woman with over 26 years experience. I live in a four bedroom house with my husband and 3 children who have been DBS and Ofsted registered (8,16, 23). My setting opens from 7am till 7pm.

I work with two assistants. My elders daughter who has just finish University and my Sister who worked for the MPS for over 15 years as a Chef before joining me. My sister is fully qualified as Childminder and both are registered with Ofsted as my assistant and have a DBS Check.

I have 3 fully equipped rooms in my house with fun and educational toys and a stocked garden to offer a wide selection of fun activities, toys and crafts, so that children can develop and learn safely and happily through play.

i am committed to provide parents with exceptional childcare in a safe, comfortable and enjoyable setting, where children are tenderly & respectfully nurtured into settled, happy, and confident little people.

To enhance my years of experience with children I regularly attended various training offered by the Barnet Children Services and Pacey (Professional Association for Childcare and Early Years) which I am Member.

My Experience

I'm a regular attendee at the local childminder group and a member of a Willows Activity Farm and Whipsnade Zoo where I take the children on weekly basis depending on the weather. I also like to take the children out to parks and play areas where I actively play with them and encourage them to have as many social experiences as possible as well as try different activities, always under my supervision and guidance. I organise trips such as to the shopping centre and Bus ride.

My son has learnt so much in such a small period of time. The sparkly staff are extremely friendly and caring towards the kids and my son loves them. Couldn’t ask for anything better.

We are so lucky to have Claudia, Bell and Cynthia to look after our baby girl. My child is attending Claudia's place since Sept 2017. We couldn't be happier with her development since then. She has a good daily routine, she has fun at Zoo, Farm or Park. A very good and healthy fresh cooked lunch and snak.
She feels secure in Claudia's home and she can't stop talking after we pick her up about what she did in that day, how she been in the park and had a picnick or how she been at the Farm or playgroup.
I choose Claudia because I believe that my daughter needs security, excelent care and nurture.
My daughter is just blooming. I know, big words, true words about a place where my baby is happy to go and I can be at pace with myself.
Thank you Sparkly!

Thank you N. for your kind words. The pleasure to assist you on your child's development is all OURS.

My two children have been going to Claudia for the last half a year and I couldn’t be happier. But more importantly my children are very happy. Claudia has a warm and loving environment and both of my children are thriving in her care.

Many thanks H.

it has been a pleasure to look after your children and it gives me a great satisfaction knowing that OUR (yours and mine) efforts are showing great results.

Claudia is a really kind and caring person, my son is 2 years old and had been coming to Claidia's childminding facility "Sparkely" for the past year and he absolutely loves it.
She regularly takes the kids out to the park, go and feed the goose, play groups and they do lots of activities at her property such as cooking, painting, playing on the jumping castle and a great deal of educational games.
She has a day plan stating what she will be doing with the kids for parents to know and be informed about in regards to what their kids are up to, additionally I am able to monitor my sons progress online on a securely on an app for just parents attending her childminding facility, it's great because I can monitor my son's progress on the go and I can see images and videos of him too the perfect thing about this is that only I am able to see this information about my son and not any other parent.
My experience with her has been just AMAZING!!!

I have a 2 year old boy, who has just started at Sparkly Childminder. He is normally not one to adapt to new surrounding fast but with the calm welcoming environment he settled in really fast.
There are loads of toys and activities to be done during the day such as going to play groups, the farm, the park and Claudia (the child minder) even takes him out to swim at times which is great as he does new and exciting activities each day and she ensure he is never bored.
Apart from all the fun Claudia is very professional and although she has only just become a child minder the experience she has with her own kids is visible in terms of how patient she is with my son as he can be a hands full at times.
