About Me

I am a registered childminder located in Letchworth near Highfield school.

I have been registered since 2010 and at my last inspection in May 2015 I was graded Good.

I am a PACEY member with public liability insurance and a current First Aid certificate.

I am a single mother of two children who are both in Secondary school.



My setting is a welcoming place where your child will feel cosy and well looked after. I have a conservatory dedicated to children, filled with many kid's toys. I can speak fluent French, and I am happy to introduce this language to your child through a variety of ways including singing, dancing and reading.

I have a clean and healthy cat who is adorable and very gentle with children. All vaccinations are up to date and I don't have an indoor litter tray.

As a family, we enjoy cooking healthy meals on a daily basis . Italian cuisine and French are my favourite and I think most children like this kind of food.

Please talk to me if your child has any special dietary requirements.

We go out and about most days to the local park located a few minutes away. I try to go to childminding drop-ins, playgroups, and the Children's Centres for arts & crafts and also to interact with other children and their carers.

In my setting I provide a safe, clean and friendly environment with resources that the children can easily access, including picture and worded books, toys & games.

We have a large and secure garden where children can play.

If you are looking for childcare, I would be delighted to meet you and your child.

Amal has looked after my daughter on a part time basis for the last year from the age of 10 months. Amal truly provides a home from home environment and my daughter has always been more than happy to walk in through the door in the morning without looking back! Amal takes the children to parks and playgroups regularly and their development is always the at the forefront of what they do during the day.

Her home is clean and her own children are very polite and well behaved, and they play with my daughter as if they were her brothers. It is a comfort to me knowing that my daughter is being cared for in such a loving, safe and child friendly environment. I would recommend her to anyone looking for childcare.

My 11 month old daughter is currently with Amal two days a week. Amal comes across as a very warm and caring person. My daughter appears very settled and happy with her.

I greatly value that Amal is so flexible and willing to help in encouraging my daughter to develop. They go out to childrens' activity groups on both days my daughter is at child care. Amal is very happy to work with me to help my daughter to learn specific skills. Having a diary book which we both fill in helps this process. Amal also sends a text or two to let me know what my daughter is up to during the day, which means so much to me.

I think it is a great added asset that Amal has a delightful, very friendly cat - who likes to make friends and be involved with the children. It is very important to me that my daughter learns to care and respect for animals and other people, from an early age.

I also appreciate the fact that Amal is able to introduce my daughter to french.

I think that Amal has a wealth of skills and experience, along with providing a safe, caring and loving environment. I feel lucky to have found her and thoroughly recommend her to other parents.

Amal has looked after my boys when she lived in London and was great in many aspects: mu boys loved her as she is very warm. She also loves entertaining kids with reading, craft, music... She is also a great cook and I knew my boys would get healthy fresh food. Finallt she is very keen on hygiene and always keep her place tidy. So she strives to create a healthy environment. I recommend her vividly and hope she will find nice families to work with.

My son has been with Amal 4 days a week since he was 9 months old. I am very happy with the childcare Amal provides and my son is settled and happy. Amal is very accommodating and understanding if I am running late from work or need to change arrangements at short notice.

My son gets on well with Amal's two sons and loves to be around them. My son is well fed and is kept stimulated with trips out, singing and dance and cookery.

I would recommend Amal as a childminder. We are only leaving Amal because she is moving out of the area which was really disappointing when we found out. We will all miss her and her family.
