About Me

Ofsted Good Provider Logo

Hi, I'm an Ofsted registered Childminder and mother of a twelve year old girl and we are fortunate to live in a fantastic large clean house from which I offer childcare.

It can be a difficult decision for parents to decide on the childcare they require for their little one, and this can be a worrying time especially if its a first child.
I aim to work with you to make this process as easy, relaxed and straightforward as possible for you, and to make the whole experience fun and comforting for your child.
Each child is special and has their own individual personality and needs and I aim to encourage and nurture your child to bring out the very best. Weather it's your child who is under one year old at my setting with a beaming smile at the end of the day or your toddler that can't wait to show the cookies they have baked or the latest drawing or activity they have made to you at collection time. Each day should be fun and exciting.

For my childcare i have dedicated the whole downstairs of my property its large safe bright and airy with lots fun and educational toys, with large safe private garden. I aim to offer lots of interesting and exciting activities and I follow EYFS guidelines. I also have a quiet area for sleep and relaxation. I offer care for a small number of children and babies from a few months and would be more than happy to discuss your child's individual requirements. I aim to provide above nursery standard care facilities and activities both fun and educational, but also to maintain a warm homely environment for your child.
I can provide healthy balanced home cooked meals and snacks and fresh fruit on request for busy parents or you can provide your own if you would prefer.
I am fully qualified and Ofsted registered, highly trained above and beyond in all aspects of childcare with all the required first aid, safeguarding and insurances. With many years experience i understand how financially challenging childcare can be so i offer competitive rates.
Parents themselves also have requirements often office based in London or shift workers, relying on roads or public transport this can be challenging at the best of times and i aim to take this worry away by being flexible so that you know your child is safe and happy. I can also offer emergency weekend and over night if required for your child.
Plenty of free parking and great bus and tube links (It's ok to leave your car here ).
Please feel free to contact me for a no obligation informal chat, and we can discuss you and your child's requirements.

Our son Sol absolutely ADORED going to Abi’s house. He had so much fun painting, jumping on the trampoline, reading and doing other fun activities with her. Abi is caring, kind, very safe and professional and her space is a dream. Sending love to Abi- we all miss you, especially Sol!

Abigail runs a fantastic Childcare service with very professional staff, she provides every aspect of childcare and has been an extremely kind and generous to me in looking after my 2 children. Abigail and her staff are kind, caring and loving in their care for my children and have looked after them as they would their own children. I have nothing but praise for Abigail’s child minding service and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for that special person to care for their children.

Abi is absolutely amazing!

From the first time I went to see her I knew she would be the right person to look after my 10 month old. As a parent it’s very scary to leave your little one at such a young age but Abi immediately makes you feel comfortable, her ground floor is dedicated for the children and is absolutely spotless and her assistants are all lovely people.

She really nurtured and helped in my daughters development from learning to walk to learning words and other motor skills, all while creating a safe and caring environment for her growth. She provided excellent healthy meals which my daughter loved!

She really cared for my daughter Elina as though she were her own, to the point where she even came by our place over Christmas (after we had moved on to nursery) to give her a gift. Which is something I will never forget.

Abi is extremely trustworthy and kind and I am so happy we chose her.

Abi is a wonderful Childminder, and I’m very very happy with the care and service she provides.
I’ve been working from home for over a year (which I loved) and I was only given a weeks notice from my embassy to return.
My little one is only 14 months old, I new this day was coming but it’s still a bit of a panic!
I started out by visiting nurseries thinking that this was the answer I don’t have any family in London, but I didn't like them not for my little one anyway she’s to young they all had to many older children charging around, i also found them impersonal, over priced and not at all flexible.
ABI invited me to visit and first impressions her place is amazing, she is very warm patient caring and easy to get on with very relaxed and professional and she explained everything to me and showed me around. Her place is set up just for her child minding she’s converted the ground floor of her house just for this and has a great garden, She has lots and lots of toys, activates, and lots of testimonials from other parents on the wall.
I would have liked to do some settling in but I didn’t have time, my job had offered me unpaid leave but it wasn’t really an option, abi told me not to worry and was very reassuring. So I had viewed her place on Saturday and dropped my little one off the following Monday, abi made everything so easy for me, I know shes probably done this so many times but it’s my first, in fact I realized at this point Lilliana had never been with anyone else away from me. Abi must have realized I was putting a brave face on it because she sent me lots of photos and updates I actually quiet enjoyed my first day back at work, I can say she is very professional at her job, thank you abi !
It’s been a few weeks now and Lilliana has settled in fantastically she doesn’t cry when I drop her off in fact she can,t wait to go in she gets so excited when I pull up outside Abi’s and she’s always content and happy when I pick up, I couldn’t of hopped for more, but there is ! Abi helped me claim the tax back on my childcare. I didn’t even know about it and it’s paying part, Fantastic 😀 it’s saving me quiet a lot of money.
Also just a quick mention abi has some fantastic assistants all very professional, sari, Cora, Amelia and fariba thank you ladies I can tell Lilliana loves being with you and she has made so much progress since being with you guys and I can tell from the pictures abi sends me how fantastic you all are.
I wouldn’t normally write a review but in this case it’s worth it , hand on heart I can’t recommend abi enough, you will not find a better Childminder.
PS Thanks abi for the card Lilliana made for fathers day it was my first one, someone at work mentioned it but it hadn't even crossed my mind let alone expect to get one.
