About Me

My name is Sabina and I am an Ofsted Registered Childminder. I have recently had my third OFSTED inspection in September 2022 where I was graded with “GOOD".

I have 2 children of my own, My son is 25 years old and a Doctor & my daughter who is 23 years old who graduated with a first class Law Degree from University of Birmingham.

I live in the Birmingham area and I am home based. My home environment is safe, fun and very friendly.

I have a great deal of experience in working with children to enable them to reach their best qualities in life at a very early stage.

My services are very flexible. I am a very approachable person and take into account parent's needs and requirements.

I offer services that are beneficial to both the parents and the children ensuring that all their needs are met.

My Experience

I have previously worked on a voluntary basis at the local schools as a teaching assistant whereby I worked very closely with children to promote independence and help them to gain confidence. My beliefs are that any parent who bring up/care for children whether it be their own or others, have amazing experience and one which is unaccountable for.

I truly don’t know where to start this review from but Beena has been God sent into our lives. First time I went with my daughter to Beena, my daughter who was only 6months old literally was holding onto Beena like she has always known her, I immediately surrendered to their love at first sight. lol 😄
But on a serious note yh, we feel safe and at peace anytime and everytime I or my partner drops our little girl over at Beena’s. I come back each time to meet my daughter on clean clothes, happy and well fed. She always try to give updates and always available when you need to check on the child you’ve left with her. She’s very accommodating, even helps me with parenting advice sometimes as I’m a first time mum and my own mum is far away in another country. She’s also very welcoming and never tired to give you reports at the end of each day on how your child behaved. I would recommend her 100%. As a first time Mum, leaving your child with someone else can be very very difficult but Beena has earned my trust with her excellent care to my now 10months old daughter; and I respect her attention to details ever since the very moment we met.

And Yes at first I tried taking my daughter to the Nursery which she couldn’t even stay for one week and that was just before I found Beena on this site.

I recommend her 100%😊

I found Beena on this website and to my daughter (2,5 yo) she is a perfect match. She has been going to nursery for just under a year, but hasn't truly enjoyed it, cried a lot and just wasn't settling as I would have hoped. Since she started going to Beena's house, she relaxed, always happy, eager to go every time, comes out smiling and tired (in a good way 😀), clearly entertained a lot!
Cannot fault Beena's approach as far as paperwork is concerned. Overall, I am very pleased with our find ❤️

Beena was the first child minder my son went to he was only 11 months at the time I was very worried at first but when we went down the first time to meet her I instantly clicked with her she’s an amazing woman and my son absolutely loves her !! She goes well and beyond she’s not just my sons teacher but she’s also a very good friend ! Honestly mums I would definitely recommend her if it’s your first time !! My sons happy when he’s there his personality has really comes out before he started he wouldn’t get on with anyone just being around the other children there he’s really opened up he’s become so playful and bubbly !!

I will 100% recommend Beena, my daughter is one years old and only been with her for a few months but she’s has learnt so much from singing, talking and playing in such little time. My child is always smiling and happy to see her. She’s very kind and friendly. I know my child is safe in her hands and one of the best child minders I know.

My Son has been going to her setting for a few months now, he has additional needs ( a feeding tube ) and she was able to learn how to use his feeding pump with ease. As a parent with a kind with additional needs it can be quite intimidating looking into childcare however she made the transition smooth and stress free ☺️. She is kind and caring and always updates me with what he’s doing in the day which puts your mind at ease. Now I wouldn’t want him anywhere else !
