Reviews

Below are the latest reviews for Stars. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk.

It is with great pleasure that I write a reference for Sukeina Panjwani, who has been childminder to our daughter Darcy for nearly two years now.

Darcy joined Raising Stars just before her first birthday. It was difficult giving her into the care of a stranger at such a young age, but Sukeina immediately made us feel reassured with her caring and professional manner. Darcy settled in very quickly and has been happy to attend ever since.

As parents, the most importance factor has been picking up a happy child every evening. It is, however, also fantastic to know that Sukeina home cooks the meals for the children and ensures they have healthy snacks throughout the day. She takes them to library groups and the children's centre on a weekly basis, with frequent additional activities such as play dates with other childminders to ensure they are getting plenty of interaction with others their age.

Sukeina's Early Years Education background has become so apparent within Darcy's language skills, which we have had complete strangers comment on as exceptional for her age. It is clear that Sukeina takes time to sit and talk with the children, read to them and teach them basic maths and English every day.

Our decision to remove Darcy from Raising Stars is linked to a move of home. The process has taken longer than we had hoped and throughout this period Sukeina has been extremely accommodating, allowing us to extend our time with her on an indefinite basis so as not to unsettle Darcy any more than needed. As always, Sukeina has worked with us to prepare Darcy for the move, which will initially be tough for her as she will genuinely miss Sukeina and her friends at the setting.

We would like to thank Sukeina for her outstanding care of our daughter, and are certain that Raising Stars will continue to thrive.
