About Me

Hi, I'm an Ofsted registered Childminder and mother of a Ten 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. Wether 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.

We are very happy with Abi. Both my 4 & 2 year olds have been there multiple years and they love it.

They are in an absolutely safe, happy & clean environment where they eat good food and most of all....are happy!!!

I would recommend her to anyone in the knowledge your kids will be looked after.

I was so lucky to have found Abi and that she had a space to take on my daughter almost straight away. Clare goes to Abi's 4 days a week and she loves it there!
Clare is a very shy child that doesn't like change and I was very nervous of how she will react to being away from me. I don't know what I was worried about?! She took to Abi immediately, it must be because of her warm and welcoming personality.
Abi's place is really nice -full of toys, arts, crafts and games. Her assistants, Amelia and Saghi, are lovely too. Clare adores them all and hardly wants to go home at the end of the day. This reassures me that this was the right choice for my daughter. She learned a lot in very short time. She is now more confident and plays with the other children. Her speech has developed too.
When I leave her there I know she is well looked after, and I am not worried. Also, Abi sends photos and videos every day, so I don't feel like I am missing out...
Thank you Abi

Short review: I cannot recommend Abi enough! My daughter loves her and cares for my daughter very much.

Long review: I found Abi's setting to exceed my expectations by miles! The space is bright, very roomy for the intended amount of children she looks after, clean, comfortable, and fun. She has an entire wall of toys by the way to fit the desires of any child! During our first visit, my daughter explored the entire place with enthusiasm. (Back then, it was very common for my daughter to cry and want to be carried when she's in a new environment). The house is also located on an accessible but quiet road and a walking distance to a park. We tend to use Uber and theres plenty of space for the driver to wait while dropping off. The garden is also spacious which has a large trampoline. On many pictures/videos I received, I see my daughter enjoying herself outdoors.

The most important thing to point out though is how loving and nurturing Abi is with children. From the moment she greeted us, I could tell Abi loves children as she has a natural ability to understand and get along with my then extremely fussy baby. My daughter is now almost 2 and she has grown into a toddler who likes sharing, playing with other children, and who is generally excited and happy which I am grateful for. I know Abi incorporates a variety of fun activities for children as she's always dancing, singing and bringing home hand-made crafts when a holiday is approaching.

My daughter says Abi all the time and this only shows how much she connects with Abi. She has made many friends and learnt many skills including walking, counting, and nursery rhymes to name a few. I genuinely believe Abi and her great team of assistants give all the children the attention needed, and putting parents at ease. I highly recommend her and believe your child will be in safe hands. My daughter have been cared for by Abi during the day for almost a year now and her positive growth and development is something my husband and I are very thankful for, as it is something money cannot buy.

After having a lengthy conversation over the phone with Abi, who was very professional and had a voice of care, kindness and someone I had a sense of connection. I went onto reading her reviews before arranging a visit to her home. I felt an immediate warmth and that this could be the place for my daughter.
I recognised cleanliness, space, appropriate toys, books and activities and after spending time going through my expectations(which are very high) and Abi sharing how she can meet them I left agreeing that this IS where I will be taking my daughter and sharing my experience with my family , friends and actually anyone who will read this. I KNOW my daughter WILL have an awesome experience and so will I. Looking forward to our new journey. Watch this space !!!

She is taking care of my only child my love, and she is doing very professionally. She understands my worries and concerns about being a new mum and she is updating me constantly while I am working about my daughter. She is also very flexible with our timings (sorry for that Abi ^.^) and she is polite, clean and kind with us. I can advise her for all future busy mums like me! Keep going like that Abi and thanks :)
