About Me

My name is Atefeh and I am a registered childminder with agency who are regulated by ofsted. I am fully experienced and qualified in childcare and have achieved an 'outstanding' grade following inspection for the 4th year in a row. My last inspection was in August 2020.

My aim is to provide high-quality care and education in a warm and spacious home-setting, with healthy homemade meals and a diverse selection of activities which enable children to develop under the revised EYFS framework.

My setting has a newly-built large playroom, a cot room, and a large, secure garden.

I can do pick-ups and drop-offs from Trafalgar Infant School and St Edmund's Primary School & Nursery. I can pick up preschool children from Chase Bridge at 12 PM.

My Experience

I have more than 20 years experience of working with children in different private nurseries and I am passionate about working with young children, especially babies.

My Qualifications

I have a Bachelors degree in child education and a CACHE Level 3 Diploma in home-based childcare services.

I have passed all of the required training and checks, including CRB, Paediatric First Aid and Child Protection.

My Availability

I provide childcare services between the hours of 8am to 6pm Monday to Friday (can be flexible upon request).

We could not say enough wonderful things about Ati and her team. We have been sending our son for almost two years and he runs past the gate every day without looking back. They are very caring and loving but also challenge him and we are always amazed by what he has learnt (this week coming back and reciting the days of the week). We get daily updates about what they are doing and weekly updates on the food they are having (keeping all the parents very jealous at the array of incredible home cooked food they get). Their daily updates include outings to museums, parks, Hampton Court and Kew Gardens.
My son started at just 7 months and they were fantastic at helping him settle but also letting me feel confident about leaving him. Our second child will be starting at a similar age in September and we can’t wait for him to get the same experience.
We have been so lucky to find Ati and would recommend to any parent!

Our daughter went to Atefeh's setting for two and a half years, and I would certainly recommend her. Ate has demonstrated tremendous responsibility in taking care of our daughter. She is kind, trustworthy and great with children.

It is clear to me that working as a childminder is a passion for Ate. She loves working with the children, and I see this manifest in her communication skills and creative ideas for activities. She keeps the children occupied and most importantly, safe. She always goes the extra mile to ensure kids learn and have fun.

Ultimately, Ate is an excellent childminder because she is so trustworthy. She is held to high responsibility.

We couldn't have chose a better option to take care of our little daughter.

We met Atefeh in Dec 2017/Jan 2018 when we were desperately looking for childcare. Atefeh was fully flexible taking us on at the last minute. She offered a visit to see her facilities and offered us a place as long as we needed before my maternity leave. Her setting was better than any we had visited and she was better than any temporary nanny we interviewed. We really liked the fact that Atefeh had a separate purpose built (and to a good standard) facility for looking after kids, and it wasn’t inside her own living space. The setting operations really won our hearts, with daily outings to various locations: the farm; key gardens; Hampton Court; soft plays; Natural History Museum etc etc. Atefeh and her team took my daughter to place I hadn’t even gotten around to! So much so that as an older 4.5 year old (she started just shy of 3), she begged to go to Atefeh’s instead of holiday sports clubs! The care was excellent as was the attention to detail for each child. The daily updates were great, plus the frequent birthdays and parties and events! After maternity leave we sent our 10 month old there full time and her older sister joined her after school pick up by Atefeh. She has loved it so much that during lockdown she kept asking for Atefeh and team. Infact the only way I could get her to do things was with the promise of calling Atefeh.
Happy to be contacted as referee, this is a great setting!!

Atefeh and her team cared for our daughter from 13 months old. She settled quickly and thrived on the routine that the setting offers. There is a perfect balance of trips out, arts, crafts and free play. Ottilie always ate well at the setting (far better than at home), and loved the frequent birthday parties and disco’s. Most importantly, she was completely loved, nurtured and received consistently high quality care all day, everyday. We highly recommend Atefeh and her team and are very sad to leave due to relocation.

Thank you for everything you have done to support our family.

We can’t really relay just how wonderful Atefeh and her team are having had our daughter cared for under their setting for over three years. She is kind, sensitive and accommodating, and keeps the children engaged and happy with fun activities and lots of Early Years learning.
The food has been really lovely and good quality too which is greatly appreciated - always fresh and nutritious. We consider atefeh as an extension to our family now and really couldn’t have managed without her secure well thought out setting and childcare.
Absolutely recommend in every way, and still feel incredibly lucky to have had her wonderful care to help us out while we are working with absolute confidence in the high standard of care.
