Since Lilliana started at Angels Academy I have felt so grateful to have found Sophie and Hany and think that they are an outstanding childminders. They are absolutely everything I've hoped for when looking for someone to care for my daughter 1.5 year ago.
They work in very close partnership with us as parents. Every day they provide key information about how Lilly has been, what she has done, how she has slept and eaten etc
They are always kind, calm and patient with the children so the little ones are happy, well behaved and know what’s expected of them.
They have created an atmosphere in which friendship and cooperation flourish amongst the children.
Sophie and Hany are very creative in their approach and I have been amazed at the variety of activities they provide for the children. Excellent balance of time outdoors and indoors. Let's not forget the beautiful newly build play house and gorgeous garden where the children spend sunny days playing and learning new skills.
I also very much appreciate the focus on healthy, nutritious, freshly made meals. Whenever I arrive to collect Lilly I can smell the delicious food that Sophie cooks for them every day.
We have already decided that Lilliana will stay with Angels Academy until she goes to school rather than going to nursery or pre-school because I have no doubt that she is receiving excellent provision in this area as well as gaining the enormous benefits of their kind and nurturing approach.
Sophie and Hany really care about our daughter and us as a family and this feeling is reciprocated. Hand on heart I cannot imagine anyone else looking after my child.

So if you are trying to find someone who will love, support, teach and help your child grow, Sophie and Hany are your perfect match . A home from home.

Childcare choices are a big decision, and this was something I was initially quite anxious about when looking around for childminders and nurseries for my 18-month daughter. However, I knew straight away when I met Sophie and Hany that Angels Academy was the right decision. My daughter has absolutely thrived in their loving care - she really has had the best of both worlds, with Angels Academy being a small nursery-style setting within a homely family environment. The children are so lucky with the beautiful facilities: a gorgeous garden and summer house which is kitted out for the children to play in, and a designated playroom for the children within the home, all beautifully decorated and adorned with stimulating toys. Sophie and Hany’s experience as both carers and parents definitely shows - they know exactly what to do if my daughter is feeling unwell, or had an unsettled night, and this is a weight off my mind when leaving her to go to work. I love the exciting activities that they prepare for the children - my daughter often comes home with something creative that she’s made! I’m so thankful to Angels Academy for the exceptional care they’ve given to my daughter.

Austin has absolutely loved attending Angels Academy. Sophie and Hany were amazing right from the start, very understanding and made the transition for me having to go back to work after 1 1/2 yrs of being a full time mummy alot easier. Im so glad we found them ! The house is immaculate, the food is all home made and the garden is amazing. Online diarys were also available so i knew how hed been and regular pics of what hes been up too were a lovely touch.

I have no doubt they have played a massive part in how our little boy has flourished - they are a very lovely family :)
I would definitely recommend Angels Academy for anyone looking for an excellent childminder

Sophie & Hany are absolutely amazing! We found them after hunting high & low for a Childminder who could assist us during April holidays with very short notice.

Our son has loved going to Angel Academy and we will continue to use them when his usual school closes for 4 weeks throughout each year.

It's a daunting feeling for any parent leaving your child in someone else's care but Sophie & Hany have made us feel extremely comfortable with their care, education & love for our 15 month old boy and it says it all when you pick your son up who is happy & chatting away.

They have understood his dietary requirements (as he is dairy intolerant) and have catered for him with tasty meals that he has enjoyed.

I would and do highly recommend Angel Academy to any parent who is looking for child care.

Our daughter has spent two days a week at Angels Academy since she was 18 months old. They are simply wonderful. They don’t just mind your child - there’s a strong, well-thought-out educational element to the care they provide, with thoughtfully-designed activities and schedules planned out way in advance, and informed by Sophie’s several decades’ experience of working with this age group. Our daughter is very happy and settled there: she was shy when she first started, so Sophie had her in little groups to begin with, and focused on helping her form bonds with other children. Our daughter has grown in confidence and always talks about her friends at Sophie and Hany’s. She’s treated as an individual and given personalised care. The food S&H provide is really healthy and always smells delicious, and our daughter always eats really well there.
