My Experience

Prior to childminding , I worked as an administrator for 3 years . I also worked in my local school with children ages from 4yrs to 6yrs as teaching assistant.

The youngest child I have minded was 4 weeks old, when I first started to look after children. I am very happy and confident looking after young babies. I also care for a number of toddlers and pre-schoolers from all backgrounds and cultures.
I have plenty of experience to look after school children and currently working with , school children .

After having my youngest child, I decided to become a childminder as I feel I can provide quality childcare for other families.

If you feel I could care for your child than please get in touch and arrange to come along to meet my lovely family.

Rukhsana and Javed are so is friendly and passionate. It is so nice to see a husband and wife work so well together. Their home is clean and welcoming. They have a lovely way of building an individual bond with each child. Rukhsana and Javed's children are a real credit to them and are great with the children too. My daughter took a while to settle at the beginning (lots of tears) but Rukhsana would always text or call me saying she was absolutely fine and happy! They provide healthy snacks and meals and do a great job of stimulating the children with activities indoor and outdoor. Rukhsana sends pictures to update me on what they are doing. I would not hesitate to recommend Rukhsana and Javed, they are the gold standard in childminding.

Rukhsana and Javid are 2 of the most amazing selfless people you will ever meet, the love and understanding they have words can’t describe.
The service they provide in their setting is one of a kind, Rukshana is a amazing childminder with a very understanding and gentle nature. This amazing women has updated me daily on my children’s journey with her and profession she has almost become like a member of our family and not just a provider I am paying for.

Rukhsana has a very loving a supportive family who support her in her setting when needed. The bond my children now share with their childminder is precious.

Rukhsana provides healthy snack and meals for children and gives them a environment they can relax and feel very safe in.
My children have had the best experienced with this childminder and she is such a blessing to my life.

I will be continuing to use this service with this childcare provider for as long as I need childcare.

Rukhsana and her husband Javed have only been looking after our 19 month old for a couple of months but they are already a big part of our lives. My daughter really struggled to settle at first and Rukhsana was so patient and flexible; allowing us to drop our daughter for a 30 mins to a few hours each day so that she got used to the setting. Her communication is great and updates throughout the day really reassure you that your little one is being well looked after and having a happy time. Highly recommended!

Ruksana looked after my daughter when I went back to work when she was 18 months old. She was always so welcoming, professional, friendly, reliable and very experienced and can cope with anything.
My daughter settled quickly and it was always a happy face environment.
Ruksana was always very imaginative with lots of activities and I shall never forget the howls of laughter coming from her flat on bubble playing days. I always had lots of photos and updates from the Babydays app.
She lives opposite Clissold Park and the kids went out everyday and had the best back garden around.
Ruksana provided all meals, which were healthy and well balanced which was a great help and managed to get my daughter to eat bread, which is more than I ever managed.
I highly recommend her as a Childminder and you will feel reassured that she is looking after your children.
