About Me

2× spaces available .

Ofsted graded GOOD (09/09/2019).

My name is Nabila Fares, I am OFSTED REGISTERED CHILDMINDER with NCFE Cache Level 3 Award in Preparing to Work in Home Based Childcare, level 3 Safeguarding training, Paediatric First Aid and I am a member of CCMA(Croydon Childminder Association).

I live in my 2-bedroom house with my husband and my 2 adorable, well mannered daughters. I have experience with children as I’ve been babysitting for 10 years abroad and in UK and I can speak 3 languages (English, French, Spanish).

I am situated in West Croydon Area close to West Croydon Station and local transport network Tram/Bus/Train.

I offer a loving, caring, fun and safe environment. I offer a wide range activities and outings.

My business is run from my home, and the whole of the downstairs is used for play and learning, both inside and outside. I have a quiet room for sleeping and children have access to a large dinning/playroom and garden with a good range of resources to support them in developing and learning, as I will encourage all forms of learning from simple toy play through to crafts, cookery, sensory activities, junk modelling and art. I often take the children to the playgroups, soft play, farm, cinema and many attractions. I provide smoke free environment and I have no pets.

For preschool children, my activities will be combination of child adult led, whilst following as closely as possible the EYFS guidelines. This will help me to ensure that we are all working together toward the 6 EYFS goals, for snacks and meals, I do my best to maintain healthy eating programmes.

I have a health and safety policy and carry out risk assessments to ensure that as far as reasonably practicable, your child is safe whilst in my care.

My Experience

I have experience with children as I’ve been babysitting for over 15 years abroad and in UK, as well I worked as childminder assistant for over 7 years (references are available in request).

Nabila is amazing! My little boy was so happy while going to her setting. He was always well looked after, fed with proper healthy food and entertained. She kept perfect track of his development and kept us up to date with the activities. Nabila followed up on whatever requests we may have had, she is warm and very professional. The setting is incredibly clean and well maintained, her whole family is lovely. She also looked after him during the night and he was so calm with her, she felt like part of our family.
We will truly miss her, but we had to move... All the best Nabila and thank you for everything!!

I have been extremely happy with the care my son has received during the 6 months period, and the great progress he has made whilst in Nabila's care. Her home is always welcoming, clean and well organised and my son has great fun playing with all the toys available and with the other children in her care.
She provides a wide, fun range of activities including plenty of outdoor interactions and take children to regular Children Center sessions.
Nabila is a great communicator and she helped my son to gain confidence and therefore encouraging a good behaviour and kindness and compassion to others.When my child steps outside his boundaries she responds with firm but kind discipline explaining what we would like to see in terms which he understands. I truly recommend a great and reliable childminder.
...Hope that helps.

Thank you Miguel for your review of my service.
It with great sadness that I had to see my Joshua go.
I will keep in contact with you and look forward to hearing about his progress.
Best wishes

My daughter really enjoyed this setting with Nabila. The setting was versatile, diverse and suitable from baby to all primary school ages. I was impressed by the genuine duty of care and the time and effort invested in my daughter's welfare and growth. Nabila was more than just a 'babysitter. My daughter had a mentor and someone who encouraged a positive metal attitude, recognition of self worth and growth. The setting is very well organised so that different age groups are engaged in appropriate activities. Nabila's approach to discipline is firm but fair, encouraging respect and manners.A very inspirational role model for children to be around. I feel very blessed to have had the opportunity for my daughter to be part of this setting.

Dear Miss RB,

Thanks for your lovely review of my service and for working in partnership with me whilst your beloved daughter were attending my setting, as it has been a true pleasure to care for her.

Best Regards


Nabila has looked after my 3year old daughter and she is a good mentor and would recommend her and anyone who want the best out of childcare. Kids are not always stuck in the house, she took them out to playgroups and has a lot of activities at home . Thumbs up to this caring and great childminder.
