About Me

My Name Is Shakira Ahmed, I am a qualified childminder who has been registered with Ofsted for 10 years. I live with my five children and husband in Walthamstow in a big house, which I make sure is clean for the children that I care for. I also have a big garden where outdoor activities take place so that the children are able to explore the outside environment. I enjoy being around children and like discovering what their likes and dislikes are. I also have two assistants that help me whom are qualified by Ofsted. All adults living in the household are CRB/DBS checked. As a Childminder, I will ensure the services I am providing is at high standards and the parents feel pleased when co-operating with me. I will also provide the children with full safety and a caring environment. If you would like to contact me please do not hesitate to do so.

Thank you.

I was very worried our (rather difficult 9mo) little girl would struggle to settle anywhere - but the moment she met Shakira she was all smiles! We instantly felt at home with her and her family environment, and knew we could trust her to look after our little one. She (the baby!) flaps with excitement every time we get near to her house, which is a large upstairs flat with lots of outside space (with homegrown veggies!) and millions of toys. She naps brilliantly there and is always in a good mood when we go to collect her. Shakira sends little videos and photos so I can see how much fun she's having. Anyone else would be lucky to have her! Katharine and JP xxx

Shakira looked after our 12 month old son for 4 months which was his first experience of childcare. Shakira was very loving with him providing him with lots of cuddles and reassurance. She was also very patient when it took him a little while to settle and kind enough to offer him many opportunities to spend little amounts of time there until he got settled. Shakira is also very accommodating in terms of helping out with extra days or changing days where possible. Food is not provided which makes the childcare very affordable. However, Shakira always ensured that my son had enough food and snacks. It is a lovely setting with lots of toys and a lovely garden too. She is definitely very professional and caring and I would recommend her to anyone.

If you are looking for someone to look after your child I would strongly recommend Shakirah. My daughter absolutely loves going to her house everyday sometimes she doesn't even want to come home with me lol , she is all you need in a child minder and more .
Shakirah has so much love to offer she treats all the children within her care to the best of her abilities as how she would want her own child to be cared for .
I can't express how greatful I am to have had met her , I couldn't recommend a better child minder than her .

everything I hoped I'd find in a childminder when I found I needed childcare for my child. She put me and my child at ease immediately. Shakira is a kind, patient person and fantastic childminder. I am very glad we found her.
