About Me

Thanks for viewing my profile.

I'm a registered childminder and I have two kids aged 19 and 9

I have always had a passion for working with children since an early age. This led me to choose my subjects of study in a direction that could bring me into this field as a knowledgeable professional. I studied child psychology and received a bachelor's degree in this field. In the following, I studied Childcare NCFE CACHE as well as Home Based Childcare Course level 3, First Aid and safeguarding training, hygiene and food, and I completed my DBS check.

My practical experience in working with children, educating and caring for them has been continuous and diverse. Over the years, I have been able to gain experience and skills through working with children at home, kindergarten and elementary school at different levels. I can proudly add that the result of my practical experience has always been pleasant for children, satisfying for their parents, and with the approval and admiration of the institutions and bodies through which my services have been provided.

In my care, I provide home made fresh food everyday and accommodate any special requested food due to any allergies your child may have or because of religion queries . In my setting we provide a high level of care towards the children’s well being whilst still making sure that they enjoy being in my care by planning out different sets of fun and stimulating activities for the children to participate in which I believe is the most suitable for their age and helps with their emotional and developmental needs.

I spend a lot of time studying when it comes to identifying the different needs of each individual child. Therefore, I am able to cater for each child’s different and unique needs effectively. In a way that guarantees her/his self-confidence, helps her/his individual personality flourish, and paves the way for her/his to shine with others.

While the kids are under my care, I find it necessary to go out at least 3 to 4 times a week and participate in activities that encourage exercise whilst making sure that the kids are still having fun and enjoying themselves. To that end, I guarantee memberships for places such as New-field Play Centre, Kew Garden, Hampton Court, Children's Museums and various other children's centres.

In my setting the development steps that I believe each child is making is discussed with parents/guardians regularly in full detail.

If you think my profile fits what you ‘re looking for, please give me a message, so we could talk further and in more detail, as I would be delighted be your child minder.

Please do not hesitate to contact me, If you have any questions.

Many thanks

I couldn’t recommend Mina highly enough.
She has looked after my daughter for the last 10months and continues to do so. The days are varied and stimulating for the children she cares for and my daughter absolutely loves the setting. She is excited to go and she looks forward to her time there. The childcare is reliable, fun, safe and educational.

Mina has been looking after my 3 year old since she started nursery at Collis in September. She was brilliant with her through that major change plus helping and supporting her with other developments (potty training etc) over that time. My daughter adores Mina and she always has so much fun with her. Lots of creativity and getting outside. Her set up is perfect and there is plenty to do & play with in her ground floor nursery.
I’d highly recommend Mina she has been an amazing support for the last 7 months.
Happy to provide a formal reference. Just DM me.

Mina has looked after after my son, as his child-minder, for over 3 years. We had to move houses so not a local to her anymore. My son absolutely adores Mina and really enjoyed his time spent at her house. Mina is brilliant with children. She is kind, caring and nurturing. Her fun nature and her love for outdoor means the kids are entertained for a longer period of time quite easily. Mina is a wonderful cook also and always given the children fresh, nutritious, home cooked warm meals every day.

I would completely trust Mina with my child. She is safe, caring and kind.
