Truly amazing childminder!

I can't recommend Shereen enough! She is a lovely albeit strict childminder but my son absolutely adores her! We have been through quite a few or rather too many settings with our first son and frankly we were never fully satisfied so we really wanted it to work the second time round with our younger boy. We always wanted a home away from home setting, with caring, kind and open person who truly loves being around children and wants them to turn into amazing little beings ready for life and school! Shereen provides a range of educational activities, outings, even caterpillar to butterfly experience, singing, reading and lots of great feedback with daily photos and texts. Our son settled in on the first day he walked in through the door! He now runs into her home and doesn't look back. What we also like is that the other children are similar age to our son, healthy snacks are provided and that our son is not part of any school pick up or drop off with much older children, which I have noticed with many other childminders. I want my son to be well-looked after and not be taken on daily trips to local primary schools and spending most of the time in a pushchair as we experienced in other settings! Sadly.

The quality of educational activities is superb, our son always brings home some exciting looking pieces of art. He naps there very comfortably too, as there is a spare bedroom specifically for little ones to rest. Her house is spacious and children can freely play in 2 rooms upstairs filled with a range of books, games and other exciting toys. Garden is full of toys too and I am also happy to know that whatever comments or suggestions I made, I have always been listened to. All in all, absolutely amazing and we are very lucky to have her! I am already anxious about the time when my son needs to leave her to go to school as I really don't want this to happen! It is worth an extra drive too, for those who think it be a little away from where you might want it to be.
