About Me

My name is Rahima Begum and I am an OFSTED registered and qualified childminder in the area of Forest Gate. I have been a childminder for 14 years therefore I am highly experienced. I have a passion for working with children and providing an excellent childcare service which is why I became a childminder. I create good relationships with children and parents to ensure the children in my care are happy and secure in my setting. My goal is to ensure that in my setting the children are having fun whilst learning. I speak fluent Bengali and Urdu.
I provide children a safe and caring environment working under EYFS curriculum to ensure children in my care are flourishing both emotionally and academically. I have a wide variety of resources/equipment suitable for all ages catered to help enhance the learning and development of the children in my care whilst keeping them entertained. I take the children out to parks, libraries, children centres, toddler groups and more to help the children thrive and enjoy themselves. I also have my husband as my assistant to help me, who is qualified by OFSTED. All the adults in my household are CRB/DBS checked. I observe and assess children and track their progress to ensure they are making the utmost progress. For every child who come to my setting full time a profile will be made for them, this will include observations, learning journeys, photos (will be taken upon parent/carers permission) . This profile will show the child's learning and development and will enable me to track their progress. This will be shared with parents/carers regularly so they are aware of their child's learning and development.

My garden is fairly large and is filled with loads of equipment suitable for all ages to help enhance their physical development.

I look after children aged from 0 months - 9 years.

Rahima is a diligent, professional, caring Childminder. Our 20month old son is always pleased to see ‘Hima’ (as he calls her) and is clearly happy in the company of the other children that she looks after. He is developing into a highly active and chatty toddler and Rahima seems to be taking this all in her stride. We would definitely recommend her.

After two unsuccessful childminders, Rahima has been excellent. I definately recommend Rahima to everyone.

Rahima has been childminding my 25 months old daughter. I have been extremely happy with the care she has received. Rahima is warm and friendly, she seems always kind, calm and patient and her home is clean, homely, well organised and my daughter has great fun playing with all the toys and other children.
