About Me

Welcome to Cheeky Charlies childminding service.
We have a fantastic reputation and are highly recommend by past and present parents, please see our reviews!

At present (14/4/22) we only have two spaces on Thursday and Friday. We will have one full time space end of July or two part time spaces over the 5 day week due to children moving on to school.

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 work along side an assistant so we are able to care for a few more children than childminders. I have three children of my own boy who's 16, 2xgirls who's are 10 and one.

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.

I Offer you as a parent........

-Very good childcare service.

Words can not write how amazing this lady is!! My child absolutely loves going every day! The care he receives is amazing. This is the first time I’ve left my child and I wouldn’t have wanted to leave him with anyone else. Farrah is so understanding and takes her time to ensure he is happy and content! Nothing is ever too much!

Farrah has been amazing with out little girl. She hadn’t been with anyone else because of covid. Returning to work , after maternity leave, Farrah was brilliant at calming us and our daughter. She has been at Cheeky Charlie’s for over 8 months now and the progress she is making is all down Farrah. She knows numbers, colours and animals and their noises. Farrah is great at reassuring you and messages us to let us know that she’s settled. She’s provides a home from home for our little girl and she loves it there. She always says Farrah’s name when at home and asks for her. Our daughter started doing 2 days a week and now goes 4 times a week. She waves us goodbye at the door and goes happily to Farrah..what more could we ask for! She goes above and beyond for our little girl and we’d definitely be lost without her . It’s hard trusting somebody with your child and we were apprehensive about leaving our daughter. After a few weeks of adjusting to a new routine our daughter quickly settled and now she doesn’t look back. One in a million she is xx

My son has been with Farrah for a year now and has honestly loved it from his first day. I feel so at ease waving him off in a morning because I know he will be cared for like one of Farrah’s own children. It’s a real home from home for him, with lots to keep him busy. Communication between Farrah and myself is great too, she is always only a message away. Can’t thank her enough for the care my child receives when he is with her.

My daughter currently does two days with farrah and her development has been above and beyond since being with farrah. She loves going and the 'family' environment. Farrah is so flexible and friendly has has been so good throughout our whole experience.

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.
