About Me

Hello! My name is Rukhaiya and I am a fully qualified Speech and Language Therapist.

I am available to provide childcare and private speech and language therapy sessions.

I am a very warm, friendly and carying person and really enjoy getting to know and spending time with all the children and their families that I have work with.

I grew up in Hong Kong and attended an international primary and secondary school. I then completed my tertiary education at University College London where I obtained a BSc in Speech Sciences.

I am a native speaker of English. I am also proficient in Gujarati and have a high-level reading/writing proficiency in Arabic.

My Experience

I have had experience looking after children of varying ages. In my role as a Speech and Language Therapist I have worked with children from 11 months to 16 years. As a babysitter and nanny, my experience has predominantly been with children between 12 months and 4 years.

My previous responsibilities as a babysitter and nanny has included caring for children in all aspects whilst in their own homes, such as following bedtime routines, cooking simple meals, going to the park and generally entertaining and playing with the children. I have also been involved in after-school pick ups.

As a Speech and Language Therapist I have had countless experience working with children in a variety of settings (e.g. schools, after-school/summer clubs, in clinic and in their own homes). I believe that my skills and experience as a Speech and Language Therapist place me in a good position to create a language enriching and stimulating environment for your child.

I am very creative and enjoy planning and doing arts and craft activities with children. I also like to be outdoors and take children to the park.

Please feel free to get in touch if you would like to find out more, require more specific information or references.

We had Rukaiyah look after our daughter after school. She was wonderful and always on time. She is honest, very loving and caring. Our daughter took to her straight away and they regularly read books, did arts and crafts and went on play dates on the days she didn't have any classes. I would recommend her 100% - our daughter still talks about and we will still use her.

Rukhaiya has been looking after my two year old daughter on a regular ad-hoc basis for a year. She is very reliable and my daughter loves to spend time with her. My daughter is always excited to see Rukhaiya which makes leaving her in her care so much easier. Rukhaiya often takes my daughter out as well as doing activities with her at our home. She also gives her meals and snacks when needed and has looked after her in the evenings for us as well. I highly recommend Rukhaiya as a nanny, she is kind, patient and is a very lovely person.

Rukhaiya is a very warm and caring person and my 4 year old daughter loved her. She is also very reliable and organised which made my life a lot easier. She is completely dependable and honest. Rukhaiya picked up our 4 year old daughter from school once a week, every week for over 6 months in 2014/15. Her job with us involved picking up our daughter, bringing her home on the bus, making her dinner, playing and reading with her. I would recommend Rukhaiya without hesitation.
