About Me

I am an Ofsted registered child-minder. I have been child minding for 5 years so have enough experience minding children from 5 months to 10 years. I recently achieved an 'outstanding' in the latest inspection.
I regularly attend playground with my minded children, as well as going to libraries, local parks, Kew garden, Magic garden, farm and etc.
I am lucky enough to have lots of Local Park very close to my house.
I do lots of different activities with the children such as cooking, arts and crafts and building with construction toys. My setting is a very friendly place for children to come and have fun whilst learning
I follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) guidelines and continually track the children's progress through observations and assessments
Provide a very warm environment, safe, secure, clean, educational, caring, full of fun and happiness.
I have a wealth of toys and I also have a secure garden for the children to play in.
Healthy and healthy food and a clean and enjoyable environment for kids, as well as being equal and not harming children, are our priorities.
I am available from Monday to Friday – from 7:30am till 6:30 pm.
I also could offer drop off and pick up your "after school children" from Chase Bridge school. Just takes. 6-8 minutes walking.

After a sudden change in circumstances, we were in a difficult position of having to find childcare for our 12 month old at very short notice. Thank goodness I found Soodi and her wonderful team.

From the moment I walked into her setting I instantly felt assured that my son would be happy, nurtured, and above all, safe here. The work they do with the children on a daily basis is not only fun and creative, but educational too.

Soodi and her team are so loving towards our son, it really is so reassuring and heart warming to see. At pick up time he comes back to us as happy as can be which tells us he's had a good day.

They send us videos regularly and use a secure, online journal to track his development which we as parents have access to.

Soodi also has our 3 year old during the holidays and he absolutely loves it there and literally asks every day when he's going back!

Thank you Soodi, Kiya and Maedeh for the amazing care you provide. Our boys love you all. I only wish we found you sooner.

Soodi is pure love and kindness. She and her team bring so many creative ideas, teaching and joy to the childrens days along with taking them out to the park, Kew Gardens and other outdoor adventures.

I know my son is safely cared for and always has something to bring home that he made.

It is the perfect in between a childminder’s and a nursery. It’s small and boutique, perfect for little ones.

Soodi shows a lot of love and affection for all the kids in the setting and they are all very happy with her. Our son always goes there with a big smile. They do a lot of activities, indoor and outdoors and we get lots of pictures and observations. They have also been very supportive with all of our son needs.

Our son initially went to nursery that lasted 2 weeks. He cried so much on being dropped off and on return. It got so bad that he would even cry if were going out in general. We took him out and decided a childminder might suit better.

When I met Soodi I informed her of the nursery experience, she reassured me and told me we would settle him in at his own pace. As expected he cried the first day of settling in, she did not ask me to leave. By the end of the week and me staying he was happy to go! I couldn’t believe it, as I thought it would take age. Her calm, patient and friendly approach made him feel so safe and supported.

Soodi’s is so much more then a childminders. It’s an exceptional pre school. She has received an outstanding for a reason. When he started 8 months ago, his language skills were very far behind. Since starting here he is now 100% literate. This is due to his days being filled with wonderful activities indoors and out. At all times he is learning through play. Support staff engage him and strengthen his language skills through asking him many questions and explanations. The new dance classes have been a fantastic new addition to her establishment. He truly enjoys them and we get to watch everything he does everyday through the Tapestry website where she uploads his daily activities for us to see.

For the boy who would cry his eyes out at nursery, now wishes he could go to Soodi’s on the weekends! We are so happy we found this absolute gem of a service.

We would like to thank Soodi and the team for taking such good care of our little one and we have already reserved our place for our newborn to start for when the time comes. We wouldn’t go anywhere else! If you want the best childcare and educational facility, with total flexibility Angel Childminders is it!
