???? VACANCY AVAILABLE ????
My name is Aliesha I am 40 years old and I am a Ofsted registered childminder. I live in the Leagrave area of Luton. I live with my partner Gary who is 45 years old and we have been together for over 17 years. We have two young children together aged 11 and 8. I have previously done childminding in 2009-2014 but stopped to Spend quality time with my own children. I re-registered in 2016. We have been in our home for nearly 7 years and we have loved every minute of living here. We are lucky to live in a street with lovely people, where there is a strong community spirit. We have recently built a large cabin in the rear of our back garden which is used as a playroom, there are lots of indoor/outdoor toys, books, jigsaws, games, I do lots of arts and crafts with the children and different activities. I also have an annual zoo pass which I love to visit and take the children. On a nice day we have picnics in the park and if the weather isn't so good we go indoor play.
Over the years I have had lots of experience of working with children of all ages. I worked at Halyard High School for 5 years as a learning/behaviour support assistant. I loved this job and found it very rewarding, I left this job to raise my children and became a childminder to fit in around family life. I have a passion and enthusiasm and love working with children, everyday is different and it gives me pleasure to teach children new things. I find it very rewarding to watch children's development and to teach them the social skills they need to start school. Since last May 2016 I have been subcontracted and work with another childminder Louise who is also a registered childminder.

Aliesha looked after my son Alex for over a year. Unfortunately due to realocation we had to leave her. I can't recommend her enough, she is like mother for all these kids, know how to organise their time, cares about them and does what's best for them. Alex was always very happy, I could trust her as I knew Alex is in very good hands.
Can't thank you enough Aliesha. 🥰🥰🥰
Aliesha looked after my two year old son for 7 months. I am so grateful to have found Aliesha, she is an amazing childminder
Level of communication is perfect and she keeps you up to date with everything, my son absolutely loved going there. It was my first time leaving my son within the care of someone outside of the family, she made me feel at ease and I loved to see that her household also treated my son like family
Aliesha is very accommodating and tries her hardest to work around times that suit you/your work pattern, I couldn’t thank her enough for everything she has done
Would highly recommend. Such an amazing lady
My 2 year old son has been with Aliesha for almost a year and I’m so sad to have to say goodbye (only because I’m expecting another baby)
My son has so much fun and looks forward to going to hers everyday. He has developed very well and learnt many new social and intellectual skills which is down to him being in Aleisha’s care. I just love picking him up and hearing the new things he’s learnt.
She does different activities with the children and takes them out regularly which they all really enjoy.
Aliesha has a lovely family of her own who were amazing with my son, and they welcomed him in to their home along with the other children she cares for.
Aleisha even took the time to put together a learning journey folder which included photos of what he’s been up to and the progress he has made which I was able to view after each term.
She has been very accommodating and I can’t thank her enough for all her hard work. She is a genuine person and a true credit to the profession... I just hope she has space next year when I’m off maternity leave!
I highly recommend her!!
Aleisha has looked after my little boy for over a year now and I have not had a bad word to say. My Son loves going to hers everyday to see his friends and do all the lovely activities she puts on. His speech and overall confidence has definitely grown and he's always coming home with things he has made or drawn and new words! Aleisha is friendly, very easy to talk to and flexible if I need to work a little late and I feel very comfortable leaving my boy with her. I often get asked why I haven't put my 3 year old into a nursery and I always say that there is more one to one care with Aleisha and Kamil is never bored or sat in the house more than a few days as they are always at soft play, play groups, the zoo or another fun place. Aleisha sends me pictures daily with what they have been up to and meals and snacks are healthy and varied. I would recommend her to anyone who needed a child minder and so would my little one! :)
Finding Aliesha was the best thing that happened to my toddler boy and I. I am a full time dental hygienist and self employed. Unfortunately, when Thomas was a baby I had to return to work and decided to try Thomas at a nursery. Thomas never settled there (I was often asked to pick him up during work) and after a year i decided to try him with a childminder. He attended a childminder's setting prior to Aliesha's and yet again screamed,clung to me and cried on drop offs which caused me to worry and stress daily. Thomas was let go from the first childminder's setting which left me quite disappointed and worried as I would need to find a new setting and start the settling in process all over again. Aliesha was recommended to me and I was reluctant due to the travel which is not as convenient as I would like. I decided to give it a try for a couple of weeks and see how things went. After only a couple of days I was amazed!! Thomas did not cry or cling to me at all on drop offs for the first time in his life! Unbelievable!! I decided the journey was worth it just to know Thomas was happy and well looked after and enjoyed being at Aliesha's. Aliesha calmed Thomas and showed him comfort and created a fun positive atmosphere. Thomas has never cried/clung on drop offs again!
Aliesha alwayssends photos daily to me of the foods the children eat and the activities the children do which are so amazing! Thomas loves all the arts and crafts and trips to the zoo and indoor play areas, learning things, planting things...the list is endless. He always tells me and my 2 daughters about the fun he has daily. I wish Thomas could of started with Aliesha right from the beginning when he was a baby. He will start school 09/2018 and I just wish he could stay with Aliesha as I know that he is happy and cared for. I used to think the best thing for children were to go to a nursery but having Thomas attend this childminding setting has changed my view 100%!
Thomas loves to be with his family more than anyone else. My older girls, 14 and 10 asked Thomas the other day..."do you love Alisha? Do you want to go to Alisha's?" Thomas replied, "yes i love Aleisha's, drop me first." I couldn't believe what I heard.
Aliesha is so lovely, kind, and caring to the children she cares for. Best childminder in my opinion! Sad Thomas cannot stay due to starting school soon.
