About Me

I am an Ofsted registered childminder in Small Heath and also a mum of 2 kids. I live in a spacious house with a colourful play room and a child friendly garden with 2 large parks nearby for children to enjoy. I offer a fun learning environment for children but at the same time a loving and caring setting that kids can develop in. I aim to use the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) as a guide for every child in my care and therefore each child will be encouraged and given the opportunity to develop to their full potential.
*** please do not hesitate to contact me***

My Experience

I have previously worked in a primary school and taught children of numerous ages. I have looked after children for family and friends and also have 2 children of my own. I am minding children of various ages at the moment and have looked after children from as young as 2 months old.

***I am now able to offer parents of 2, 3 and 4 year old toddlers the free 15 hour entitlement each week, please contact me for more details***.

Reviews

Below are the latest reviews for Tots Learning Zone. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.

Our childminder is the best we could have possibly found for our son. He was 10 months when he started and 2 months later he has learnt sign language and doesn't like leaving the childminders home. He has even stopped crying at handovers. Which is shocking as he is normally very attached to mummy but so reassuring he has settled in well and so quickly.

The Childminder has worked with us to ensure our son's routine stayed as it was. We have daily updates and do not feel out of touch with our Son. We are settled in the knowledge that he is in a clean, safe and loving environment. He is fed on time, has his naps on time and we honestly believe he is developing a lot quicker. He is aware of his surroundings and has developed strong social skills. We have noticed a significant change in his development, he can associate words like light and bird to the actual objects and animals and certain body parts like eyes and nose as he will pull his nose when you say nose or try to wink when you say eyes. It’s amazing how he does this and how much he has picked up at the Childminder’s.

Both my wife and myself would highly recommend Musarrat and her services. We have no complaints or issues whatsoever to date and trust it will remain this way. Above all, our awesome boy is a happy one!

Musarrat is very experienced and gives good advise regarding our son and his behaviour and development as he is growing up.
She is attentive and reliable and we have peace of mind that our son is well looked after and is doing lots of different activities on a daily basis. She has no TV in her home and I have noticed as a result our son isn’t really interested in TV and gadgets much (which is rare for children these days) and prefers more physical play and oh outdoor play as he gets lots of that at the Childminder’s also.

As working parents we both have demanding jobs that require us to work different times and dates each week and Musarrat is fantastic in accommodating our needs and helping in trying to keep our son in a routine and not let working life effect him.

She is helping with training our son to come off his bottle and drink milk from a beaker and also eat more independently. This is a massive help and weight of our shoulder as he spends a lot of time with other children and will copy what they do and comes home to us and will continue to do the same making the change from bottle to beaker so much easier. He is so much more accepting to change.

Tapestry (online learning journal) is fantastic. Musarrat will put regular updates on there with photographs. This enables us to be a part of his day and see what he has been upto. He is always smiling in the pics and does so many activities that I’d never think of doing with him at home.

We also have a daily book where we can write about what he will have for lunch any issues or requests and it’s so good as little things like he has had his nap and all his lunch or even how many dirty nappies helps us to understand our son and what to expect when he is home.

Musarrat really is fantastic in her role, she works so hard and you can tell she is passionate about her job and loves the children so much...no wonder her settle in soo quickly and come home smiling each day. We would be lost without her.

Musarat is very caring and friendly, I was worried about leaving my daughter as I Could not find any suitable nursery or carer for my baby. Because of previous bad experience with nursery I was extremely cautious leaving my daughter with any one. Musarat has been very trustworthy, caring and loving. Her house is always tidy and clean. My daughter is never reluctant going there. She loves playing there. She settled herself there very soon. She loves playing with kids there. I am happy and satisfied that my daughter is in a healthy and safe environment being at Musarat's house.

Musarat looked after my daughter a few years ago. she now looks after my two year old son. Both my children love Musarat's home. It is clear to see to anyone that Musarat has made her home a safe environment for children to play, learn and develop. She always ensures that the children in her care are continuously progressing in their learning. My son has learned so much since starting at Musarats and he loves playing and interacting with the other children there. I would definitely recommend Musarat to my friends and family as I'm very pleased with the care and concern that she has for my children's wellbeing.

Musurrat was always professional and flexing with our childminding needs. She has a clean spacious house. She has made her front room into a designated nursery/play area. She doesn't have a TV (so you can rest assured your child won't be babysat by the TV!)

She follows all the EYFS criteria. And uses an app called Tapestry to chronicle a visual diary of your childs time with her and their day to day experiences. Thus keeping you well informed of your child's progress.

She answered all our questions at a first meeting were she then emailed me a comprehensive list of all her policies and guidelines (see how efficient and organised she is, unlike me!)

Overall, she is a highly recommended competent professional childminder with a lovely warm demeanour who has lots of experience. She had strict routines and boundaries which our son really responded too. And her services came at the perfect time to suit our family's needs. Thank you Musarat!
