Below are the latest reviews for Safina t. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.
I enrolled my son at Tinybees when he was 19 months as I had to go back to full time work. Initially as a new mum I was sceptical about childcare for my son, but soon my worries were gone when I saw how organised and dedicated Safina was towards the children in her care. She gave us timely feedback and advise on how we could reinforce the work she was doing in terms of supporting my son's social, cognitive, behavioural and linguistic development.
Before joining Safina’s setting, my son was on pureed food and was a fussy eater. Safina worked on his eating habits and we soon saw a change in him. Safina encourages healthy eating habits and provides a healthy well-balanced lunch and nutritious snacks for the kids during the day.
Safina puts a lot of time and effort in arranging lots of activities for the kids during the year like field trips, sports days, world book day etc. Kids get to enjoy Easter, Christmas, Halloween and Eid parties – which is so much fun and engaging for the kids. This year she even organised a party for the King’s coronation. Kids learn a lot from these events. Not forgetting the Graduation ceremony that was held for the little ones starting reception this year.
Safina works on bringing out the best in every kid and recognises that every child is different. She channels their creative energy into learning and makes it fun and educational. Kids can enjoy a mixture of activities like singing, dancing while also learning phonics and doing arts and crafts. My son’s vocabulary for his age is exceptional! This is all down to Safina’s hard work. She has prepared him very well for reception, which he starts in September, this year.
My son adores Safina and especially her husband. He enjoys going to the nursery and misses it on the weekends. This is so comforting and says a lot about the care and attention he receives from them. This also shows how safe and loved he feels being around them.
I will 100% recommend Tinybees childcare to friends and family and will be sending my son to her during school holidays. We don’t see Safina’s setting as a childcare anymore, they are like extended family and we are happy that they have been part of our son’s upbringing.
Do your child a favour and book Safina (Tinybees) services before she's booked out..oh yes, that normally happens so fast!
I would give safina a 1000*** she's literally transformed my children's development within a space of 6 months.Meticulous about everything, passionate with her work with a plethora of experience in Early childhood development. Her facility is well equipped for Early learners.
Without a doubt, my 4 year old twins are more than ready for reception because the changes within 6 months with safina are beyond description. She's instilled cognitive, linguistic and social-emotional development, good personal hygiene practices , healthy eating habits, I could go on...
Her ability to interact and care for children with special needs has greatly impressed me.
I have no hesitation in recommending her to any family seeking childcare.
looking for value for money? Your perfect childminder is waiting!
Safina has been taking care of my daughter Noor since she was 13 months (she will now be 3 years old!). Initially, I was a bit sceptical to leave my daughter in childcare, especially as my older two kids have been looked after by family when I returned to work.
But Safina very soon managed to form a strong bond with Noor. Noor genuinely adores Safina and her husband, who have become like a second family to her. This attachment speaks volumes about the warm and welcoming atmosphere Safina creates for the children under her care. It is comforting to know that while Noor is away from home, she feels safe, loved, and surrounded by people who genuinely care about her well-being.
One reason I was drawn to Safina initially was the exceptional cleanliness and beautiful setting of her childminding space. She literally transformed her entire house into a nursery with a large playroom with lots of different activity sections, a kitchen space, a conservatory for in-depth learning & fun outdoor garden. I see her constantly upgrading her resources & toys and it is evident that she takes great pride in her work. I love how her setting provides a home away from home but with the resources & activities of a high-end nursery - all focussing on the children's growth and development.
Noor has thrived both emotionally and intellectually at Safina’s setting. It is evident that Safina has played a significant role in Noor's development, as she is advanced for her age in terms of skills such as holding a pen and being independent in terms of eating & participating in different activities. Safina is also very helpful & accommodating whenever we faced emergency situations which was such a relief and my daughter would have stayed if we didn't move out of the area a year ago.
One thing I will miss is the number of fun and engaging activities for the children at the setting. Safina goes above and beyond to celebrate important events and occasions, such as Eid, Christmas, Easter, World Book Day and even the Queen's Jubilee and King's Coronation. These festivities create a sense of joy and excitement for the children, making their time with Safina truly memorable as you can see from the pictures I shared.
Overall, I cannot recommend Safina & her husband Faisal highly enough as a childminder. If you are looking for a childminder who treats your child like family, provides a clean and beautiful setting, and organizes enriching activities, Safina is the perfect choice. Noor's growth and attachment to Safina are a testament to the exceptional care she provides.
Two of my children have been going to Safina’s for over 2 years. The eldest of the 2 started Reception last September and her teachers said that she is so advanced that she was ready for Year 1 even maybe year 2 by March of this year. This is all down to the time and dedication Safina put in to her learning. My youngest is on the same track and far more advanced than most children her age. Both children love going there and learn so much whilst having lots of fun. Thank you for you hard work and dedication to my children. Would definitely recommend to anyone.
We probably should tell you that more often, as your childcare service are excellent.
When we were looking for a setting for our son around six months ago, Safina's appeared as the best option for us. After contacting her and seeing the location, she managed to arrange to set up our son in just two weeks, as I was starting work. The baby was only one year old and, at that point, wasn't walking correctly on its own, wasn't sleeping alone and was breastfed. With your help and advice, our little started walking, sleeping and drinking milk from the bottle, which he didn't want before. We have seen changes in our little one's behaviour, which shows the care and the hard work you both do every day. We can see you do a lot of activities for all the kids because our little, when he is home with us, is starting to do new things that we are sure he learned from your settling. We have been a few times in the setting, and every time was spotless. The communication with us, the parents, is on an everyday basis.
We know our little loves your daughter, and we are grateful for all the care.
