Saima helped us with providing care for our son Toby. Her home was always clean, welcome and organised, full of various toys Toby loved playing with. She was a true professional, she organised his day and attended to his likes and dislikes of various kinds of food and drink.
She was flexible and didn't mind if we were late from work, which was a huge help.
We are thoroughly happy family with the level of care Toby received, and being in such positive environment definitely helped him to develop confidence at the nursery.
We would recommend Saima as a great childminder

Toby's Mummy and Daddy :)

My child spent nearly a year with Saima and had the best start to his nursery and schooling life. Saima came across as a true professional with great credentials. She was extremely helpful in being able to identify what would suit my child needs and would cater to those requirements. As parents we were quite nervous at first, as this would be the first time we would leave our child with someone other than ourselves. Saima was able to make us feel at ease and came up with a daily routine of things she would do with the children, which made us feel more relaxed and comfortable.

Saima had a great place which was well equipped and had a lovely play area which contains many, many toys and books, suitable to the needs of my child. There was definitely that "homely" environment in which my child was able to settle into. Saima place is easy accessible.

Throughout the whole experience, communication between parents and Saima was excellent. Saima was able to communicate promptly and effectively. At the end of the day sessions, Saima was able to give accurate feedback around what my child learned and what he was feeling for that day.

Saima is available at short notice and we were able to arrange a childminding without any hassle on many occasions.

Friendly, honest and caring......
My child really had that great "aunty" experience from Saima that would delight him and one which he would share with us once he would come home. From what we have observed as parents, Saima is very dedicated to the children and that passion clearly shows. My child was very comfortable with Saima and always wanted to stay a bit extra and always came home with a big smile on his face.

Looking for a Child Minder, don't go too far, Saima is the one for your little ones. I have 2 girls and they have been going to Saima's house for the past two years. Besides being a professional, Saima is absolutely lovely and amazing. She's warm, caring, homely and her motherly instincts never seize to amaze me. 

She ensures that the girls are occupied constructively. She has two children of her own and she encourages them to play together and has activities set out for them so that they don't get bold. Saima is a big believer of respect so, trust me when I say she is a blessing to our family. If it was not for her going to work would be extremely stressful. Thanks Saima, you're amazing.
