About Me

Ofsted Good Provider Logo

I'm 44 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. My setting opens from 7am till 7pm.

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 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 groups 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 take the children to local Library, parks and play areas where I actively play with them and encourage them to have as many social experiences as possible as well as motivate them to try different activities, always under my supervision and guidance. I organise trips such as to the shopping centre and Bus ride.

Claudia is lovely. My 3-year-old son has settled in quickly and easier with Claudia since he started going to hers 2 months ago. Claudia is keen on ensuring my son meets his development requirements and she actively exposes him to activities that allows for this.

Sparkly is an excellent and caring setting. Claudia, Bell and Cynthia are kind, professional, patient and much more. They create fun and educational environment and are attentive to development opportunities and logged all these, so I never felt like I missed out on important milestones. I am very glad to found them. My son started in September 2018 and being 1 year old he wasn’t talking, these lovely ladies were so amazing that now at 3 he doesn’t stop...lol
My 10 years old daughter started also in September 2019 and loved it. We miss you all and recommend this amazing childcare setting to anyone.

Claudia was a blessing for my son and I! We were brand new to the area and in an emergency requirement for last minute end of summer holiday childcare and Claudia saved the day! My son loved the other children she took care of and really enjoyed feeling part of Claudia’s extended family for a couple of days. His day out at Willow Park was his favourite part (I was happy and relieved seeing photos sent through of him enjoying himself too). Although for him to not even remember he had his iPad packed is a huge victory for Sparkly and everyone involved. Thank you for being a great childminder and a great set of ears to listen to stressed out Mum with nowhere to turn. Would thoroughly recommend and will definitely use again! ❤️

Hi Stacey

Thank you very much for your kind words. We also loved looking after OUR Boy.

It will be a pleasure to look after him again.


My 2year old daughter has been attending “sparkleys” for the past 7 months! It is an amazing setting for the children so many fun and educational things to do. They also attend parks, farms and indoor play groups. My daughter absolutely loves going here as she is always telling me what her and her friends have been up to. I can keep track of what my daughter is doing through out the day which I love. Claudia bell & cynthia take care of my child as their own, they truly care. I feel so comfortable leaving my daughter in their hands. Couldn’t ask for better minders. My daughter became become fully potty trained with in 2 weeks of attending, and her personality really shined through as soon as she attended. My daughter is a very big fan of their cooking class and has become so interested in helping me cooking at home. Thank you ladies for all the amazing work you have done for my daughter and myself. Highly recommend!
