Welcome to Cheeky Charlies childminding service.
We have a fantastic reputation and are highly recommend by past and present parents, please see our reviews!
My name is Farrah, I have been childminding for 15 years and have 16 years experience with caring for children. Our recent inspection May 2018 we were graded good! I have three children of my own boy who's 15, 2xgirls who's are 10 and nearly 1.
I offer a clean, non-smoking and welcoming home with a wide range of educational and fun toys for both indoor and outdoor .
I have dealt with a lot of first times parents who are very nervous/anxious about leaving their child, I understand as I had to do it my self with my own when he was a baby. I have good working relationships with all my parents and their families and make time to discuss any worries/concerns that they may have.
I have a Diploma in childcare, and have completed my NVQ Level 3 CYPWF, and NVQ level 5 in leadership & management in social care and children's services. I have attended many courses with Early Years which do include First Aid and child protection. I have spent 6 months within a nursery setting as manager so I have plenty of experience within the childcare sector. I have recently became a childminder mentor to help new childminders through the process of starting their new roles, also to support and advise.

My little boy has been going 2 Farrah for over 16 months and he loves it, he has come on so much in his social skills colours, counting etc. From a parent view she is amazing friendly makes you feel so at ease especially for a stress head mom like me. She offers a very happy welcoming home, Even during all the covid stuff she has continued to be amazing and put me fully at ease. Me & my boy would be lost without her & will be gutted when my boy leaves 4 school. Not just childminder she makes the kids feel like her family. Highly recommend.
My daughter has been attending farrah’s setting for just under a year. Never left her before as we have no family local. Farrah is very welcoming, chatty and bubbly and we just felt at ease, Her home is clean and there are plenty of toys to keep the children busy. Our daughter was a little clingy and had a few tears at first but after a week she was fine, I would text and call to see how she was and farrah would reply which just put my mind at ease while I was at work. My daughter has a daily dairy which farrah writes in every day to tell us what she has done throughout the day, nappy changes, sleeps and meals and also tells us on collection. My daughter has thrived, and is hitting all her milestones, and her learning journey is fabulous! Communication, a bond between childminder and my child and someone I could call a friend was what I was looking for and I got this when I found farrah. She bends over backwards to help out in any way possible, If you are looking for a childminder, I couldn’t recommend her enough!
My son has been with Farrah from when he was 9 months old, at the start it was hard going back to work and leaving him as he did cry. Farrah was amazing on making me feel better leaving him also obviously making my son feel better as after a week or so he was fine with me leaving him. Farrah’s home as such a welcome feel for the children and my son has come on so much since being there. Farrah is so helpful also if I need her for extra days or i need days swapping. Just so friendly and caring, love her.
Farrah has been nothing short of a godsend. My husband and I are both students with a very demanding timetable and thought we'd never find a babysitter.
Luckily we found everything we needed when we found Farrah. She is trustworthy, has a wonderful demeanour and has always helped out when we've been truly desperate.
Our son comes back bubbly and full of smiles, and we can only thank Farrah for that. He always has lots of activities to participate in, and she gives us regular feedback on how he's getting on. She is a one of a kind babysitter. Farrah, we are grateful for everything you do.
Farrah is a lovely childminder. She made my daughter feel safe and happy and always ensured our needs was met. We would definitely recommend Farrah to anyone.. and we will miss her lots!! Love Trish and Ava.
