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.

Ruskana is actually a godsend in my opinion literally my husband organised a surprisingly spa retreat for me then without thinking no nursery space, relatives unavailable until a searching online during the day I felt like my day was getting better she was available at moment notice and cheaper.
Today I received updates throughout the day although I was enjoying relaxation massage seeing how happy my son was and the interaction especially it being he's first ever child minding and so on,
my emotions were to say the least 'thats date night settled'

Above all I highly recommend her and will undoubtedly be seeing her again and her family very soon

Kind regards

Nathaniel & Jacky

My son started with Rukhsana in jan 2019 and so far its been a very smooth ride. He has warmed to Rukhsana and her family - has even met and began to build a rapport with my daughter though she doesn't attend this childcare.
Always updates me with all aspects of care and is always keen to get feedback.
Rukhsana has done very well to integrate my son into her family which makes my son amd i feel better for having to part ways every day when i go to work.
Thank you!!

Rukhsana and her lovely family have been looking after my 11 month old daughter; honestly I couldn't have asked for a more loving, caring and understanding childcare setting/provider.
My daughter is always happy there, and my family always feel welcomed there too.
Shining star childcare are very professional; efficient; up-to-standards; and extremely reliable!
I would recommend them highly.
Once again thank you for looking after my daughter, I genuinely can not thank you and your family enough! 😊😚
