as a first time mum choosing a child minder to look after my daughter was very scary for me, when I met reeta I fell in love with her child-friendly home, not to mention she really put my mind at ease about how the whole childcare process works. we have had reeta for half a year and noticed our daughter blossom in her development, her family are also very welcoming and amazing with kids- they practically treated my daughter (who can be very demanding at times) as part of there family! whenever I picked up or dropped off hallie, she would be delighted to see reeta.. As reeta is also a mother as well as an amazing child minder I would highly recommend to all mums- rest assured your children will eat well, be loved and looked after and develop beyond there milestones.. we are gutted to be loosing reeta due to having to move- if she has any openings in the future (if I move back to wallington) I will definitely ask for her back x

Hi Alice,
Many thanks for the review for choosing me your Childminder. So far children who have left me with very good memory and I miss them a lot. We will miss Hallie a lot. But I will definitely phone you sometime to talk and see Hallie on watsapp.

My daughter Zara has been going to the lovely Reeta since she was 18 months old and she settled in very quickly with her in her home setting. I work full time 5 days a week and can go to work worry free leaving Zara in Reeta's care.
Reeta prepares yummy hot food fresh everyday for the kids and ensures that they are properly fed. She even packs the dinner if Zara has not finished her food so I can feed her later when she feels hungry. Reeta caters for all dietary requirements. Children are provided snacks and juices and water throughout the day in addition to breakfast, lunch and dinner. Zara loves her food lovingly prepared by Reeta.
Zara is 3 years old now and I am very happy with her progress as Reeta provides great learning opportunities for the kids. She has lots of great toys and activities in her setting and even does cooking and baking with the kids.
She takes the kids out to the playground, park, library, animal farm and museums and so the kids learn and enjoy a lot with Reeta. She also teaches them according to their age so that they progress well.
She has a very helping nature and she even drops off my daughter in the evening as I don't drive.
She is an understanding and wonderful person and I'm glad I made the right choice in choosing her to look after my daughter.

Hi Sana,
Many Thanks.

I have known Reeta to be a very loving and caring person. When you see her with kids you can tell straightaway that she really enjoys her time looking after them. She always strives to give her best. Very honest and humble. Time and again I have recommended to my friends purely because I have 100% confidence in her ability. She understands every child's needs. Very thorough and very tidy in what she does. She has been a great person and I wish there are 100 more Reetas like her for parents like us.

Many thanks for your review.

Reeta looked after my baby daughter, 6 months. I recommend Reeta to all parents as she made me feel that my baby was safe, secure and well looked after in her house. There is a lovely garden at the back of Reeta's house that children can play in. She also took her to a local playgroup where she spent time with other children. I don't have a car so was walking to Reeta's house. She was flexible in that my partner dropped my baby off earlier when it rained. Also as she was close to my house, she dropped her off to me a few times which really helped. When it rained once she actually drove me home! Which was a nice touch! Reeta genuinely likes children and that's why she is in this area of work. She gave me advice on weaning and sleeping as that's part of her childminding qualifications, plus she has 2 daughters of her own, so plenty of experience. Reeta also kept daily progress sheets filled in and advised me of developmental progresses of my daughter. My baby seemed happy and smily whenever I picked her up as Reeta took her time to give her attention and I could tell she was pleased to see my baby each day! She also goes to childminders network meetings to keep her knowledge up to date. So, all in all, I would not hesitate to recommend Reeta to look after your most precious possession!

My son started with Reeta when he is 8 months old. He settled over there very quickly and he enjoyed over there. Reeta cooked fresh meals for my son and he loves the foods. Reeta 's home is clean and more spaces for kids to play. She is caring & kind. Highly recommended.
