Nyarai is amazing childcare provider who is attentive and engages the children in her care. Both my daughters have attended on an ad hoc basis and Nyarai has been very accommodating and supportive. They love going and never want to leave when it is home time!

Nyarai is an amazing Childminder!

She has looked after my daughter on a number of different occasions when myself and my husband have gone abroad, or when we have required babysitting services.
Nyarai is very caring and extremely patient. Our daughter never has any issues settling in, she always comes back extremely happy and full of stories to share about the fun and exciting things she has been up to.
I would highly recommend Nyarai as a childminder if you are looking for a trustworthy, creative and a genuinely nice individual to look after your child. 😊

Our son was at Kiwi’s from 10 to 27 months, and I could not have been happier. Nyarai is amazing - so patient and creative.

When we started our search for childcare, we weren’t exactly sure what we were looking for, but minutes into our interview with Nyarai, I knew she was it!

One of the thing that struck me when interviewing others was how much the children seemed like guests. At Nyarai’s, the children are home. Everything is built around learning, caring and community, and it shows.

She’s great at sending updates and pictures, and takes notes about what she and the children get up to each day, whether it’s to to Horniman or the pet store!

Even though we’re not with Kiwi’s anymore (just a circumstance change on our part!), our son routinely asks about ‘Rai’ and when we can see her.

I would highly recommend Kiwi’s to anyone!

I used Kiwis care club for over a year.

The Nyarai and staff are very competent and informative. This made me feel assured. I felt my child was always safe and well looked after. With both educational and fun activities being provided.

My child was fed during the time to which there was a good verity of well-balanced options.

For me the most important virtue was the staff’s friendliness. Both myself and my child were always met with a smile.

Thank you!

My daughter started attended Kiwi's Care Club a few months shy of her second birthday. At the time, she did not have a very good relationship with food, as well as having number of food related issues. She was unwilling to try anything new, sticking to only a few familiar foods. Nyarai was not only able to introduce her to new foods, but got her to eat whole meals. She encouraged good eating habits, whilst taking her food sensitivities into consideration. Nyarai also offered advice on improving home meal times, including giving us recipes for meals my daughter enjoyed, whilst in the setting. When it was time to potty train, Nyarai discussed with me what I would like to do and if I felt my daughter was ready. We talked about the best way forward and what practices she uses in the setting, so we could jointly work together, to make the transition as smooth as possible. This worked amazingly, as we were able to potty train her in one month. The children regularly visit local libraries and Lewisham Market. This also includes the local parks, where in the summer they have picnics, as well as visits to Horniman Museum. Nyarai has proved to be invaluable, in helping to nurture and facilitate my daughter’s development.

When we didn’t get our nursery place we had to find a childminder quick. Finding Nyarai was the best thing for not only our son but our family.

She was amazing from day one! I was filled with so much confidence by her as an anxious mum who was worried about leaving her child! She was always amazing at taking my son out to various places and sending regular updates and photos throughout the day.

My sons language came on leaps and bounds during his time with her, he gained so much confidence in himself and she even took the lead in potty training him.

I can’t praise her enough as a childminder. She’s loving and caring and so flexible.

My son is now at nursery but my other son will be starting with her soon when i return to work and it’s so nice not to feel anxious leaving him knowing that he is in such safe and loving hands.

Even though my eldest isn’t cared for by Nyarai anymore he still asks to see her and we meet up when we can for play dates. So lucky to have found a childminder like Nyarai. I can’t recommend her enough!

Nyarai is an excellent childminder and my girls have loved the time spent with her. She is very organised, patient and creative - my kids are always kept busy and occupied when they are with her. She has brilliant communication skills with the children - and has plenty of time for a cuddle if/when needed!! Highly recommended :-)

My started at Kiwis Care Club in 2015 when she was 6months and left at the age of 4 years when she started Reception.

Leaving my daughter at such a young age meant it was extremely important to find the right childminder and I did when I found Kiwis.

My daughter learnt to walk, write her name and was potty trained by 2 1/2 years old thanks to Kiwis. By 3 1/2 years she could read, recognise and write the name of everyone in her family.

Kiwis often cook, bake, go to the park and do focused learning daily. Kiwis is so passionate about nuturing young minds. With the language, fine motor skills and manners that learnt and re-enforced at Kiwis, my daughter was more than ready for school when she started in September 2018.

I would recommend Kiwis to any parent who is nervous about sending their child to childcare and want their child to be cared for with child centred activities daily. My husband and I couldn’t have asked for more.
