About Me

My name is Soffia, I am a registered childminder based in the Canton area. I have a spacious 3 bedroom house with plenty of room for fun and activities, and a nice size back garden. I have 2 children of my own who are 22 and 27 and no longer live at home. I am a non smoker and do not own any pets.

My location allows me to take the kids out regularly to the park, soft play and to the local library. I am also very close to several primary schools. I ensure the kids in my care are active and are learning and exploring on a regular basis. I also have plenty of toys suitable for all ages.

For an extra small fee I provide freshly cooked meals every day. Drinks and snacks are provided too.

My aim as a child minder is to provide a safe, happy and homely environment.

My Experience

I am a member of PACEY with whom I have public liability insurance. I have been on several courses which include, first aid, food hygiene, child protection and managing children. I continue to go on courses to further my knowledge.

My Qualifications

I have completed an NVQ Level 3 in children's care, learning and development. I hold a first aid certificate and me and my children are all DRB checked. I have completed my level 1,2 and advance child protection course.

My Availability

I am fully flexible and work Monday - Friday all day and in the evenings.
I also provide school and nursery drop off/pick up.

I used soffia's services for around 2 years. Before going to soffia's my little one had never left my side for more than a few hours. She made myself & my little one feel very comfortable from the start. My boy absolutely adored auntie soffia & looked forward to seeing her. She went above and beyond to adapt to my needs due to work hours never being the same. Her home is immaculate and there is a lot of toys and activities to keep the children occupied and happy at all times. My little one was also lucky enough to go out a lot while in soffias care and regularly attended soft play & enjoyed trips to the parks to play & feed the ducks. Had i not of lost my job I never would have stopped using soffias services. Could write a whole lot more & not able to think of a single bad thing to say. Was a pleasure to have met this lovely woman & use her services x couldnt recommend enough!!..

Sophie has been my children's childminder for 8 years without Sophie I wouldn't have been able to go to work content in the knowledge that my children have always been safe. During all of that time I have found Sophie to be caring and considerate, she has shown exceptional abilities and provided my children with a stable and nurtured environment to grow and learn, I feel at ease when leaving my children in her care, and my children have grown very fond of her. I would have no hesitation about my children being guided by her, she has always encouraged my children to play and learn through a stimulating and happy environment . I couldn't recommend Sophie any higher for any parent currently looking for child care, she has given my children a stable honest and sound approach to life, for which I will always be grateful.

I have used Soffia for my childcare for 11 years until I recently stopped work. I could not recommend her enough, she is amazing with children and her work with them is her world, she does lots of activities and I have always felt safe leaving my children in her care down to my 1year old from an early age. I couldn't have picked a better childminder she is an amazing person and my kids love her to bits! Her home is immaculate and child friendly and she has always catered to my child's fussy food likes.

Soffia has been My children's childminder for two years. She is the best childminder anyone could wish for. She has a lovely warm and inviting home. My children love going with her, with trips to soft play and the park there's no wonder why! Soffia Is kind, caring, patient, positive and I wouldn't want my children to go with anyone else. I honestly couldn't recommend her enough!
