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! 😊😚

We moved from italy few weeks ago, and both me and my partner started to work immediately.
We found Rukshana from italy and we immediately went to talk to her.
Our 19th months son was never been look after by somebody else rather than us, we ere really worried but Rukshana treated him like her own child, she kept us send us update through the day with pictures and video and we immediately saw that he liked her! we were really pleased!
it took just about 2 weeks to him to fully settle and now when he is with her he gets really clingy to her and want to stay next to her all the time. They go to the park every day, the play and explore, we love that he's there in a safeplace with somebody that really love her jobs and the kids she look after.
I like the fact that they all remove their shoes in sign of respect before entering the house and that the kids are free to roam around in a dedicated area without having to do some particular activity but just being able to play with each other.
We are really happy we found her 1 we believe our child is holding a special place in his heart for her already!

We have recently started with Rukshana and this is our first experience with a child-minder. Our children have settled very well with her. I have been reassured with her professional and friendly services and have found her reliable.

I have used Ruksana's services as my very first childminder for my 6 month daughter. I felt relaxed and at ease as Ruksana is a very experienced childminder and she provides regular contact about feeds, nappy changes and naps.
She has been flexible as I work one long shift on Thursdays and was able to pick up my daughter at 7.30pm. There are activities for the children of all ages and its a very safe and welcoming home environment. I will definitely continue to use her service as my daughter was taken care of so well and I didnt have to worry whilst doing 9 hours at work. Definite thumbs up from this mum.
Many thanks,

My daughter was in nursery but since I moved her to the childminder I noticed the difference on the first day as she is happy. They go to the park and to the libraries, group centre, etc.. They do many activities during the day, on the end she arrives tired. They also have app where you can download from your mobile phone and you can follow them step by step during the day. Very good service! homemade food and made in the day and best of all is that my daughter has formed a family bond, lovely and happy family. Rukhsana and her Husband looks like second mum and dad, caring and with experience. they make you feel at home, her children are so lovely and friendly with others children and my girl never want to leave them. They are the best childminder I had seen and I recommend.
Thank you for all love and encouragement you and your family give to Khyara 😁🤗
