About Me

OFSTED and NCMA registered fully qualified Childminder, 18 years experience Newborn and up. CRB checked, Insured and qualified in First Aid and Health and Safety. I am also member of Sandwell Childminding Network.

I provide childminding at my home and do not provide au pair, baby sitting etc.

I cover Smethwick, Bearwood and occasionally Harbourne and Selly Oak. I do take kids from outside these areas but can't do pick up/drop off or school pick up/drop due to timetabling so parents are wholly responsible for dropping kids at my house and picking them up if living/attending school outside these areas.

I am a 54 year old living with my husband on the border of Smethwick, Bearwood and Cape Hill in a 3 bed terraced property. We are all CRB checked

Both of my children are now grown up, my daughter, the eldest, graduated university in 2008. My youngest recently completed his Masters and PHD. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and my hobby is flower arranging. We have no pets and we are a non-smoking household.

Children have access to a playroom with a wide range of play and early learning toys, and full access of the garden when weather permits. I provide food for children if needed but parents are welcome to provide their own. I aim to create a safe and fun environment in which children are encouraged to learn new skills and develop as individuals.

I am rated "Good" by Ofsted which is second only to "outstanding"(the highest rating)in the Ofsted rating scale. You can view my most recent Ofsted inspection report if you click on 'Website' at the top of my profile.

I am more than happy to discuss your childcare requirements to see if I am able to help. Please call me on the mobile or landline featured on my page for a chat about your childcare requirements, if I am able to meet your childcare needs we can arrange to meet informally in my home so we can get to know each other and you can see the setting.

I look forward to speaking to you soon.

My Experience

Formal Childcare: 19 years (11 in Playgroup/Nursery and 8 as a Childminder)

My first childcare experience was gained in a local authority play group where I worked my way up to Playgroup leader from 1995 to 2003. Following this I became the playgroup and crèche leader at a local community centre before leaving this role in 2006 to become an OFSTED registered childminder.

Tabassam looked after my twin girls for two years and they absolutely loved it. From when they turned 13 months to the age of just over 3, they developed massively and learned lots of new skills. Tabi is a very experienced childminder and I would not hesitate to recommend her service to any parents who is looking for a caring, home-like yet organised environment for their children. I am grateful for every piece of advice we received (e.g help with potty training) and the flexibility with drop off and pick up times. Tabi looked after my twins as if they were her own grandchildren and we will definitely miss her a lot.

Both my girls have been with Tabassam youngest one from 6 months. The level of care and attention and love has been outstanding. My girls both settled in very quickly and enjoyed going. Tabbassam creates a loving environment and pays attention to each and every child's needs as well as building a fantastic relationship with the parent. While I was at work I could be at ease knowing my girls were safe and happy with Tabbassam and that's what every parent wants when they leave their children in any childcare setting. The level of flexibility has been great and helpful as I worked shifts. After school Tabbassam would give them fresh delicious food as well as help them with their development and work. My girls felt as if it was their second home which was comforting for me. So proffesional, kind and an amazing childminder. I highly recommend. Wonderful.

My boys just love Tabi and her flexibility is amazing. Tabi took care of my little baby boy and my eldest son from her very clean home. My eldest use to go by her on school holidays and always come back raving about her cooking and delicious pizzas. She also kept him in his schoolwork as he would always come home with writings, drawings and paintings. My little boy developed very well in her care as well as now he is into books and reading and he is 1 now. He also says some words and is great with showing what he wants. I highly recommend this Childminder she made me feel good about my kids wellbeing and made me feel right at home as I was new to the area.

My dearest childminder,
My baby has had a great lovely experience with Tabassam since age of six months old ,she has been more than a child minder for my babby, she and her family are our gourgeos support and friends during difficult days and nights of duty as physician.
I am very sad to leave her , we have to move to another city because of our job as doctors .
Our blessings will be with her and her friendly family all the time.
I have always seen and felt how happy is my baby to stay with any member of her family and I always had my mind in peace byleaving my dayghter with Tabassam.
Kindest regards....
