Nadia looked after both my daughters who were 2 and 4, she made sure the girls had something to do she specific for both of them. She provided a secure home with plenty to do and also ensured they got plenty of fresh air.

Nadia took my girls out to play group as well which allowed them plenty of stimulation.

We would definitely recommend Nadia she is so professional, calm and caring. She has a lovely welcoming home and is always happy to help.

We had to send our son to Nadia's house as my wife wants to get back to work. We were initially worried how would it all go and after a few days we were very happy and confident of how much caring she was and she had a really lovely manner with all the children in her care. She always seems kind, calm and patient with them and all the children are happy and well behaved and know what’s expected of them. Whenever I’ve visited Nadia's place I’ve seen all the children happily and safely engaged. She would also take the children to toddler groups and also regularly to the park and to the garden. she is also very understanding and flexible. In fact, when we had to leave our child on one of the Saturday's we were very happy to leave him at Nadia's place.

I have been extremely happy with the care my child has received, and the great progress he made whilst in Nadia’s care. Nadia’s home is always welcoming, clean and well organised and he had great fun playing with all the toys available and with the other children in her care. Beyond all this though, it is Nadia’s warm and friendly but no nonsense approach which sets her apart from other childminders we have experienced.

I have to give a glorious review to Nadia as our daughter’s childminder, because of her tremendous care, individual attention and genuine love she bestows upon her. She has the perfect balance of professionalism and motherly love which I was looking for in a child minder. From the first moment my daughter met Nadia, she was feeling at home with her. Despite my daughter never having spent time with any childminder before she readily accepted Nadia solely due Nadia’s warm hearty welcoming nature.
Regarding her home, we find it always spotlessly clean and hygienic. She has invested a lot of time and money in keeping her home safe and interesting for the toddlers. She has a very well kept and thought out toys and children’s books collection and she actively encourages children to use those to her advantage. Nadia read to my daughter the story of hungry caterpillar which is now her favorite story. The interactions with Nadia and her family have really developed my daughter’s English language skill and accent.
Nadia regularly takes children to play in toddler groups, which helped my daughter to enhance her interpersonal skills. We have noticed significant positive changes in the way she interacts with people of her own age as well as people in other age groups. Nadia has also helped her to positively enhance her self-confidence. Even her future class teacher from Hillside primary school have complimented our daughter on her confidence, a majority of which is attributed to Nadia’s interactions with her.
Nadia regularly takes her to park and spends a lot of time playing with her outdoors, which have helped her to have a sense of nature. She notices everything which is going on around her and frequently makes comments on it. Her love of outdoor activities is really progressing because of Nadia’s efforts. Our daughter now recognises numbers, sings many nursery rhymes, say stories and make conversations in fully structured sentences in English, thanks to Nadia.
I am able to concentrate on my highly demanding job just because I am sure my daughter is in safe hands. Nadia often goes the extra mile and leaves no stone unturned in the happiness and development of my child. We would never see Nadia complaining or without a smile. I being new to this country and with my husband living abroad Nadia is truly a blessing and I am very glad to have met her.

My husband and I work full time on average 50 hours each in a challenging retail industry. Nadia took extreme care and love to look after our 2 children (3 year old son and 2 year old daughter) and took immense pressure of ourselves.

Nadia was very flexible with our changing shifts at short notice and working long hours.

Our children were always well looked after, well fed and enjoyed going to see Nadia.

Nadia sent pictures and video's of my children playing and communicated well with us which was very reassuring when first going back to work (my daughter was 8 months old).

Our children love going to see Nadia and were upset when we moved to Leicester which is the only reason we don't use her now.

If anyone is looking for an excellent childminder I doubt you will find one better than Nadia, you can go to her in confidence that your children will be well loved and cared for, my experience with Nadia is that it's not just a job for her but a great passion.

Thank you so much Nadia for looking after my children so well.

My two daughters have been with Nadia Saleem about 7 months and I have made the right choice sending my daughters. Her house is very neat, spacious and lots of toys to play. She always made fresh food and my daughters enjoyed her food.
My younger daughter who is nearly 2 and half has been improved speaking fluently. My daughters love spending time at Nadias place and I really have peace of mind at work.
She often takes children to toddler groups and parks which is good for children to develop social skills. It's very hard for a mother to leave her child but when I met Nadia, I was very much rest assured that my children will be safe in her hands.
Thank u Nadia for everything..
