About Me

I am a Ofsted Registered Childminder. living in Central Watford with my Husband and 3 lovely and very well mannered kids.

I am happy and outgoing personality and provide a nurturing, happy and safe environment for all children under my care.
An environment geared to learning through
fun and giving children the ability to express themselves freely. I provide care from Home that is welcoming and safe. A place that children feel happy coming to and where Parents/Carers are happy and confident in the knowledge that their childs welfare and happiness is paramount to me.

I provide daily diaries, with pictures giving details of what the children have done during the day. Pictures with paint, lentils, pasta shapes, salt dough decorations, seasonal pictures and home baking are often taken by the children in my care.

My Husband was added onto my registration as an assistant and has brought his positive, happy, outgoing nature to the care setting and he is a welcome asset to my care service, and help me to give pickup and drop off if needed by parents and kids he is licensed Private Hire Driver.

We both have updated DBS.

My Experience

I am working as a child career since 2008 I was working with the special need kids as well under Watford County Council, and have three kids two boys and a girl. I truly believe that there is no better experience than bringing up your own children to be happy and confident individuals.

Parenting is a daily learning experience and we bring all we have learnt and what we are constantly learning to the children our my care. However it is also important to be continually looking at improving your service and keeping up to date with current practices and legislation. Please see my qualifications below.

I love arts and crafts and encouraging creativity in all forms is an important part of the day as is exercise, be it in the park or dance time in the house. Baking, reading and learning through fun also features in our day. I believe that interaction with other children is important as it helps to form valuable social skills and provides lots of fun. We also visit local parks regular basis when possible.

Reviews

Below are the latest reviews for Sumera. 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.

My son is 5 years old and Diagnosed with Autism. He usually does not do well with other children but, with Sumera, he felt at home right away, even on the first visit. He was always looking forward to go there and would even cry if the door is not opened right away for him to go inside. Sumera's family is very warm and let's my son do his own play. Sumera is quite flexible.

My son always like going to her and she is like a second mum to him because he is such a sweet boy and only has a select few people that he is quite comfy and at ease with.

Definitely highly recommended.

I can’t thank Sumera enough for rescuing me when I required very early morning childcare at short notice. She accommodated all my needs and my son loved being in her care ( must have been the cheesy pasta :-) He wanted to stay longer to play.
I greatly appreciate the fact she provides childcare 7 days a week and very flexible. I definitely recommend her services.

Sumera and Yasir have been an absolute delight. I started back at full time work and needed to find a childminder within two weeks. Just as I was beginning to give up hope sumera reached out to me and offered her services. They are friendly and kind, and make my son feel so comfortable in their home he never wants to leave. They go the extra mile, adhering to your change of schedule and never once make you or your child feel like an imposition. Highly recommended!

Sumera looks after my child once a week and I coulsnt be happier. My child is treated like part of the family and she absoloutly loves spending her time there, most of the time it's hard to get her to leave with me. My child is well looked after and settled straight away. It's so comforting knowing whilst I'm at work my child is safe and having lots of fun doing lots of exciting things.
