About Me

I am an Ofsted registered childminder in Coventry, Radford / CV6 area. My name is Shabana Sheikh I live with my husband Alam and my daughter, born in September 2017.

I have worked with children and families for over 5 years in a primary as a Learning Mentor, before I became a Childminder. I have lots of experience working with children with Special Needs and Health Needs such as, asthma, autism, down syndrome, dyslexia, eczema, just to name a few.

I became a childminder to allow myself to care for my daughter and offer a service to others who would like their children to be cared for in a safe and homely environment.

I use the downstairs area of my home which has patio doors leading to an enclosed back garden. I have also converted our conservatory into a playroom. Creating a home from home environment for children of all ages ranging from new born onwards. I pride myself on having a safe, clean, smoke free, pet-free and alcohol-free home.

Having come from a nursery early years and teaching background I have extensive understanding and knowledge of the Early Years Foundation Stage. This is hugely important for childminders and I feel confident to teach and help your child to develop and grow into happy, healthy and confident young people.

In my setting each child is treated as an individual and I offer stimulating and constructive play and activities to develop creativity and imagination. I have a wide range of indoor and outdoor toys.

I offer a safe and homely environment for children by conducting thorough risk assessments of my property both indoors and outdoors. Also by ensuring all the equipment and toys are safe, clean and age appropriate.

I have completed all the mandatory training required by Ofsted as well as, a level 2 Food Safety in Early Years course.

I hold an up to date Paediatric First Aid certificate and I have a First Aid Box which is regularly checked.

Below are the latest reviews for Shabana. 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.

I moved to Coventry from Birmingham and started sending my little boy to Shabana almost 2 months ago. Not only do I feel he is safe and secure, he also really enjoys his time with her. He enjoys socialising with the other children she cares for & she also does a range of activities with him and any chance she gets to take them out to the park and get some fresh air, she does. I am a full time university student, so she has been very understanding and flexible with my timetable and catered her services too meet my needs which I am so grateful for. Thanks to Shabana’s calm nature my little one has settled extremely well with her. I would 100% recommend her childcare service!
