About Me

My name is Zainab Mughal, I have been looking after children for a number of years and I have now decided to do it in my own home, as i love looking after children of all age range and also offering parents/carers a piece of mind whilst at work. I'm married and have 4 grown up children, live in Thornton Heath 10 minutes walk from the train station.

My Experience

I have worked in childcare for 10 years and have a wealth of experience caring for children. On a daily basis I encourage and provide messy activities for children to explore different textures, physical activities in the garden or local park, taking children to library and local play groups to meet other children and carers. I work closely with parents/carers to provide best possible care for their child.

I am a fun,bubbly, caring, warm, diciplined and pro-active person who enjoys challenge and also offer a unique and high quality service and run a friendly, consistent, flexible, community focus meeting the needs of individual child and families.

My main aim is to help children develop their individuality and confidence through the 7 areas of learning in the Early years, through play, listening, talking, sharing skills whilst still having fun.
I prepare and serve nutritional meals and snacks for the minded children.

I communicate verbally to the parents on how their child's day has been and provide them with a daily diary. I also send photo's to parents by watsapp them on a regular basis, as I understand that leaving your child for the first time can be a daunting experience and by doing this, it puts the parents at ease as they can get an idea of how their child is developing.

For outdoors I have a secure and spacious garden for use all year round and Arts & Craft activities, according to age in order to develop individual needs.

I started with Zainab in August 2019 and it has been nothing but an absolutely brilliant experience. Zainab is a wonderful childcarer and I feel comfortable leaving my 23 month old in her care. Zainab has been flexible with our schedules, fab with communications and open with feedback and suggestions for our daughter. I would definitely recommend Zainab to other parents.

Hi, Debbie

Thanks for the wonderful review, it's my pleasure to look after Mimi and she is very helpful and intelligent little girl.

Zainab and her husband have been looking after my now, 1 year old daughter for a few months now.
I'm a student midwife, so have very random shifts and Zainab has been so accommodating.
My daughter is spoiled by her family and I feel comforted knowing she's in a safe place. She's always happy to go to their house!
I had specific dietary requirements for my daughter and Zainab cooks meals catered to these requirements. I am very happy with the service she and her husband provides

My 19 month old son started at Zainab’s 2 weeks ago and although drop off is hard-as to be expected, on pick up he’s always very happy and has had a lot of fun. Zainab and her Husband are kind, friendly and caring people. I’d highly recommend their care.

Thanks for the lovely review, I hope I have given best facilities for your daughter requirements and hope you are satisfied
with my services.

Best regards

I went to view Zainab’s setting for my daughter who would need care at 11 months old. Her home was very child friendly and Zainab herself was so lovely and caring!
Unfortunately I had to find a childminder a bit closer to home and work but If I didn’t need to then I would of 100% sent my daughter to be with Zainab!
Her prices are cheap and for what you get I feel you get more than you would need for your price!
I will definitely keep Zainab in mind for the future!
