About Me

I am married with one son (born in 2000). I love working with children which is the main reason I started childminding.

I am a fully qualified childminder living in Knowle. I am registered with National Childminding Association (NCMA) and my setting is assessed by Ofsted.

I hold qualifications in childcare NVQ level 3 and I have also received training in first aid and food safety (more details are given under 'my qualifications).

The children in my care take part in a range of activities, both at my setting and in playgroups. These activities include counting, reading, writing, solving puzzles, painting, colouring, baking, outdoor activities such as going for walks near the setting, swing/slide in the back garden, water and sand play, growing plants, going to parks etc.

My Experience

Prior to childminding, I worked at Tommy Nursery. This gave me an opportunity to interact with a broad age range of children which helped me greatly when I started childminding. Overall I have 5-years of experience in childminding + 1 year experience in nursery.

My Qualifications

I am a registered childminder with Ofsted since 2008. I have attained CACHE NVQ Level 2 (2008) and Level 3 (2010) in Children's Care, Learning and Development.

I have also received training in:
- Paediatric First Aid
- Emergency First Aid
- Health & Safety for Childminders
- Food Handling for Childminders

Isbah has been looking after my daughter now, who is 3, for one year. My daughter loves going to Isbah's house. Every day apart from Friday they work on numbers, letters, colours etc but all in a fun environment and I have noticed a significant improvement in her ability. Isbah takes my daughter to and from nursery and is well know within the school and in local childminding circles which is lovely as my daughter knew a lot of the children she is at pre school with even before attending. Every day they have fruit (which she didn't like before). And every day we get a full briefing as to how she has got on and if children have been good they get a sticker. I would have no hesitation in recommending her. .
