About Me

My name is Rahima Begum and I am an OFSTED registered and qualified childminder in the area of Forest Gate (near Wanstead Flats). I have been a childminder for 15 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 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 on visits to local parks, libraries, children centres, toddler groups and more to help the children thrive and enjoy themselves.
All the adults in my household are DBS checked. I observe and assess children in my care and track their progress using the EYFS curriculum to ensure they are making the utmost progress and identify next steps for improvements. 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.

Parks near to me:
Wanstead Park

I have a large home, which is ideal for children as it encourages children to explore. My house also has a toy/play room, which is equipped with many toys and resources for children to play and learn in. Children have access to my garden, at all times, which is filled with loads of equipment suitable for all ages to support their physical development.

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

Today is my daughter Ivy’s last day at Rahima’s, and I feel my heart breaking as I write this. My heart breaks because I know Ivy will be devastated when I pick her up for the last time this afternoon. I don’t believe there are any words good enough or that would do justice to describe how utterly wonderful and amazing Rahima has been for the last 2.5years.

Rahima has looked after Ivy full time while I have had to return to work and there has never been a moment that I have had to worry or wonder if I had done the right thing leaving Ivy with Rahima for the whole day, every day. Rahima provides a lovely and secure environment with amazing toy and activity facilities and regular updates about Ivy and her progress. Ivy was only 4 months old when she first started at Rahima’s and has grown up to be a very happy, articulate, chatty and polite toddler, who is happy to share toys and play with other children. Ivy is an only child, so being brought up in a family environment with other children was very important to us. We wanted Ivy to learn to interact, share and play with other children while benefiting from a home-like environment. Rahima and her family welcomed Ivy into their home and looked after her as if she was their own, for which I will be forever grateful.

If we were not moving away from London I would have loved for Ivy to continue at Rahim’s until she had to go to school, and even then, probably would have wanted her to be with Rahima before and after school. We will all miss Rahima and her family, and cannot recommend her home and childminding services enough.

I'm very happy with Raheema, she's very caring, has a well equipped setting with a great outdoor space with suitable toys for all ages. My baby started with her when she was 10 months old and quickly got used to. When I pick her up often baby's seem to have so much fun she doesn't look like she wants to come home with me.😊 I can absolutely recommend Raheema.
