"The place to be!!"
review of Little Dolphins - Childminder in Perivale
The place to be!!
My daughter has been with Hanaa for over a year and we've had a wonderful experience! I can't recommend Hanaa highly enough.
I was very reluctant and worried to leave my daughter with anyone- but when I started work,
I had to find a solution for my younger daughter who was 21 months to be looked after and also cover for my older daughter for school pickups and holidays.
Hanaa was very understanding and reassuring and for me it was important that Hanaa as a mother herself understood completely the worries I had when leaving my precious child with someone new for the first time.
She has made the settling in really easy for both me and my daughter and has always been very transparent and kept me informed and updated re food, nap, routine, what happened during the day and listened to my worries and accommodated specific needs.
She has welcomed my daughter very warmly and she has absolutely blossomed in the last year. I am amazed at how confident she has become and how lovely she has learnt to play and interact with other children. I put lots of her achievements down to Hanaa’s work!!
Hanaa has an unbelievable amount of toys and games and a wealth of ideas as of what to do and play with the children, according to their individual age and interests and needs. Hanaa is very experienced and knowledgeable with children and confident how to handle children of different ages and abilities which you'll notice straight away. She has a lovely way with with my daughter and all children.
She is lovely and gentle but firm with the children and handles the unbelievable stress and and pressure of organizing all the children and school runs and getting everyone where they should be with ease and always with a smile on her face. Even in the most stressful situations I am amazed at how calm and collected she stays and always with the children on the forefront of her mind and their best interest at heart!
Hanaa always does her at most best to accommodate the needs of working parents and changing situations. I have two children and no family nearby - whenever I have any situation out of the usual occurring at work or with one of the kids sick- Hanaa has without fail always helped me out, even at the short notice and it always worked out perfectly.
My daughter loves going to Hanaa and I have total peace of mind and can concentrate on work! Whenever I pick her up its a happy and cheerful buzzing environment full of laughter. It feels like a big family with lots of children rather than a childcare setting! Just exactly what we needed- a home away from home for my children and I don't yet know how I will survive in sept when my little girls starts pre school! We will all sorely miss Hanaa and all her family!
