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 email 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.

My son has an awesome half term thanks to Zainab. Her house is clean and my son looked forward to going there everyday. I got detailed daily reports of my sons days so I could keep up. I will definitely use her service again. Very professional

I went to visit Zainab’s home and felt the warmth of the house. She truly loves children to the core and is very prepared to look after kids, be it babies or toddlers. The house is very organized and clean and totally gave me the confidence I was looking for. My 4 year old twins and 8 year old son will definitely be a part of her kids team. Thank you for such a warm welcome and for passing on such security. I loved the place completely!!!

My daughter has been looked after by Zainab on many occasions & she loves it! She’s always asking to return back to Zainab’s whilst on holidays.
At times, I’ve had to arrange pickups with Zainab & this has been a great relief for me as I can fully entrust my two youngest with her.
She’s created a thorough plan for children’s development in line with EYFS to continue in her current setting which concentrates on the individual child’s ability and development on a one to one level.
