About Me

Hi, I’m Zoey! I’m a mum of three, fourteen and twelve year old sons and an eight year old daughter, therefore I am well aware of the challenges and demands of care for children of different ages. I realise I have most joy working with children and my own, so I left working eight years in a primary school as a Safeguard Lead and Learning mentor, to enter the exciting world of childminding and an ‘away babysitter!’ From eight years of experience and skills in looking after children, makes me confident enough to help your child/children to socialise, communicate, have fun, learn, explore, be comfortable, participate in EYFS activities, develop physically and emotionally in a safe, nurturing and protected way! Children are my passion, they make me smile, laugh and having them around, as well as my own, makes me young at heart. I am a nurturing, patient, approachable and reliable person who wants the best for young children so they can be confident and develop well for their future.
Most importantly, I have set up a home nursery to broaden your child’s full potential by having a playroom and resources at a child’s level. As well as this my home is bright, warm, comfortable and clean.

I also offer an ‘away babysitting’ service where I pick up your child, they learn through play (EYFS) at my setting and go on outings, eat well and then I drop them home (for families close to my setting/or you can drop or collect). If you’re interested in this service, send me and we can have a chat about it.

Both services include my playroom for daily arts and crafts, cooking, gardening, role play, music making, educational outings, but most importantly child led activities.
Please let me know what service you would like.
My setting is based in Stratford E15 4DW.

For the past 3 months, my 3-year-old son Jonas has been under Zoey's care, as we are temporarily living in Stratford and were unable to enrol him in a nursery until September. Zoey has a lovely aura, as stated in a previous review, and I couldn't agree more. She put us at ease from the moment we first met, and my son quickly settled in and felt like he was in a second home. In addition to soft play, he enjoyed trips to the park and farm. Occasionally, Zoey took care of Jonas' 11-month-old brother, who settled in pretty well with her and enjoyed being in her care. It has been a pleasure to know Zoey during our time here, and we are thankful to have been able to connect with her.

Zoey it’s exactly what I was looking for my daughter. She is caring,nice and always smiling. My daughter loves her. She always takes the kids outside to the park some soft plays or trampolines. She is helping whit the toilet training and it’s very supportive. My daughter does not speak English but since she is going to Zoey she comes back every day with new learned words.I highly recommend ZoeyCare.

I recently visited Zoey cares with my son and he didn’t want to leave. He loved what he saw, all the fun activities and educational stuff too. Zoey was very welcoming and had such a lovely aura about her. I will definitely be bringing my son here and would recommend Zoey cares to all my friends and family.

Thanks so much Zoey 🥰

This is exactly what i’ve been looking for. I’ve been quite reluctant to leave my daughter with childminders but after visiting Zoey I’ve totally changed my mind. Such a friendly & welcoming lady whose warm smile and demeanour completely put me at ease. Her home is very homely and you can tell she has tried to make it as accommodating as possible for the children. Its not too formal and looks as though the kids will feel right at home. Zoey is very reassuring and i feel I can confidently trust her in looking after my daughter. Thank god for that as i was really nervous about the whole things & my daughter seems as though she liked her too. Great stuff.

I made an appointment to visit Zoey.care childminder. I am glad I did Zoey was very professional but very approachable. Zoey was able to asses abs understand my child needs reassurance is very important for being away for long periods so Zoey took pictures of all the fun activities and education topics to give me reassurance through the day . My son loves it abs tells me all the good work he had done and likes Zoey caring side as my son can be quite fussy. I would definitely recommend especially if it’s your first time settling young ones back into a fountains while you go back to work the first time for a long while. Thank you Zoey 💕
