About Me


I am an OUTSTANDING Ofsted registered child minder, a member of the National Child Minding Association and also a member of the 'Children Come First' child minding network. I provide excellent care in a clean and spacious home environment.

I live in a spacious four bedroom semi-detached house with a beautiful garden in a popular Dartford residential area.

I am a mother of 3 brilliant and hard working children aged between 17 and 26.

I cannot speak more highly of Sheila. She took such amazing care of my youngest child. She goes above and beyond and her setting is a child’s paradise. The warm, stable environment and love she provided really helped prepare my daughter for starting school and we will certainly be keeping in touch!

Sheila has been looking after my kids for the last few years and she has been absolutely amazing! Kids just love her and I feel reassured that a kind and trustworthy person is looking after them! I strongly recommend her for the care of the little ones!!

We have been with Sheila for several years where she has cared for our 2 children. Sheila is professional yet warm, kind and firm when required. Her setting is always clean and presentable and she actively provides stimulating learning and fun activities for the children to participate in. Her flexibility is an asset.
At no point have I ever been worried about the children, as Sheila is cautious and safe. Having that peace of mind as a working parent is priceless!! My son swears by her jollof rice too, its great!
If your looking for a home away from home safe place, look now further, arrange your interview immediately!

Sheila is;
Very Welcoming
Loving & caring

She not only embraced my 3 years old but also my 8 years old and myself. More than a childminder, more like family. Her children are as amazing, any child will feel comfortable in Sheila's home.

Only reason we had to leave Sheila is because we moved counties. We all miss her dearly and will recommend her any day.

It's a pleasure dear, I'm missing you and the boys too.

Sheila looked after our daughter Joella for almost 2 years. Our daughter was well looked after .we had no concerns. We are very lucky that we found Sheila .She is simply the best! She welcomed our daughter and treated her like family. She makes all the children feel so welcomed / sense of belonging, that has helped our daughter with her confidence and development esp being there with other children young and old and it’s really nice seeing her with them all and creating such wonderful bonds. She regularly updates us with her progress and recent activities through face to face , progress tracking book and whatsapp .She has a range of activities/toys and took our daughter places such as to playgroups.. Sheila was also very flexible and reliable. She had on so many occasions helped us when my husband got stuck in traffic from work.
We have never had any doubt about our daughter's safety when she was with Sheila. We would highly recommend Sheila to anyone who is looking for trusthworthy and reliable childminder . Thanks for everything Sheila.
