My son has been with Safina with Safina since 2016. As a single mum it was difficult for me to go to work until I met Safina and Faisal who are the most warmest and great people I have ever met. I wanted my kids to be in a homely environment where the could learn and develop with other kids. Safina and her husband is like a family to me. As a single mum they have given more support They are flexible , they are so helpful and understanding , they even offer to pick and drop my kids for free.
My kids adore both of them, even to the extend when they are on holiday all my son can say when I am go8k to see uncle. Faisal have heart of gold , he always have this smile that put you to ease. My son love Faisal so.much that whenever he see him , you can see the joy and happiness on his face
Safina childminder is similar to a nursery but with a warm and personal touch, which is why we chose her.
When I first when to see Safina I felt like I knew her forever , because of her kindness , I felt in love with her and her family..
Thanks you you both so much for everything. Words alone can not tell you how much I grateful and appreciate you noth for all you done for me and my kids.
My son has been with Safina since he was 10months old and he is now about to start school soon.
I wanted my son to be in a homely environment where he could learn and develop with other kids but also where he was not just another child to be taken care of. Safina and her husband treat each child an individual and look after them as per the child's needs. Safina is always happy to give you advice on anything regarding your child. There have been times when we are not sure about how to handle our sons moods and her advice has helped so much. They are flexible on times as well in case we need to leave our son early or get a bit delayed to pick him up.
Safina runs the childminder setting similar to a nursery but with a personal touch, which is why we chose her. She does all the activities which the a standard nursery would do with the children and more... My son is 4.5yrs old and can count 1-100 numbers, knows how to use phonics and write alphabets already. He has turned into a very happy and confident child growing up with Safina.
Would definitely recommend Safina!!
Met Safina for the child-minding services for my 21 month son . It was delightful to see how passionate , knowledgeable and committed she is towards her profession. I have been a teacher my self in the past and being a mother I truly believe, anything you do that involves children has to be done with nobility in your heart and can't be done with just materialist goals and Thankfully she did come across as a child minder who takes genuine interest in the childs well being.
I would definitely be taking her services in he future and higly recommend her based on my interactions which were brief but very satisfactory
I wish you all the best Safina...
Safina and Faizal have both been the best childcare provider I could have asked for. When we first came in this country it was very difficult to work with the kid. We went through various childminder but when we spoke to them and saw the environment and the way they interact with the kid we joined them. Safina and Faizal has an amazing ability to put children at ease. Since we came from India our son used to not able to speak or recognize the phonic sound. Safina used to devote her with him and also suggested(Phonics video and play serials) to us how to improve him through home.They were very professional with us and also very caring for my son. They have so much energy it is infectious and my son has grown to love and look forward to spend time with them. For our son that was like second home where he used to play, learn and have fun. They kept us up to date on how my son is doing through observations, and daily updates of how is he had done throughout the day. My son never wanted to leave their place. Even now when he has started schooling every morning he still ask whether he is going to his old school or new one.
I have seen my son develop so much since he started going to them. Safina and Faizal have shape my son not only in personality but also in his behaviour. They taught him to share, respect and love. There was time as a parent we used to not know if our son is facing difficulty in talking. I remember Faizal had pointed out that he do not spell some word properly and we should take guidance from professional.
They both have taught him so much that he did not face any difficulty in his reception year. I would strongly recommend the couple for any parents as they are the best.
Safina and Faizal you both are amazing thank you so much :)
Safina and Faisal offer a wonderful, caring environment which allows your child to feel comfortable and loved.
My son joined these guys when he was 10 and a half months old, and for any parent, this was an extremely daunting time. Safina was so good at ensuring that my son was comfortable in her surroundings before he went for his full days. Although this was nearly 3 years ago, we have had so many positive experiences that I can’t recommend these guys enough.
Home from Home surroundings to superb communications via texts, newsletters through emails and generally, communication has always been on point.
Safina has always shown to be supportive of my needs but is equally good at giving advice. Things like encouraging my boy to eat well (which he was and is still very good at) which I must say again, is something we are very passionate about at home. Good food equals healthy mind.
After having our second son, we had to unfortunately send our first son to a nursery closer to home whilst i am on maternity leave, however, intend to send my second son back to Safina and Faisal soon as I go back to work, as I simply couldn’t imagine anyone else bringing up my boys at a very special and influential time in their lives.
Thank you to you both - you’re both truly amazing at what you do 😀
