We love Mngaweya! She is amazing in many ways and outstanding as a childminder. She has looked after our two children at various times over the past 6 years, from babies until they started at the Infant school and they still love spending time with her. She ticks all boxes as an early years education provider, while also instilling confidence, independence and good manners. The children have lots of fun when they are in her care. They generally play outdoors and are given plenty of opportunities to jump in muddy puddles, bounce on the trampoline, mess around in toy cars or on trikes and play in a mud kitchen. They often visit the woods, playgrounds and have their picnic lunches out. I have studied and tried to copy the way Mngaweya talks to the children and manages their disputes and emotions, as she is skilled at creating an amazing calm and happy vibe around her. She has also been person I turn to for advice about parenting when I need a sounding board ... and finally, don't worry about saying 'Mngaweya' properly. My kids mastered it before me, and she also responds to Weya!

Our two children (now 4 and 7) have been attending Future Stars for 7 years. We like the setting because it's a home away from home, lots of emphasis on learning through child led play both indoors, in the garden and out and about. Mngaweya takes the children out to local play groups and childminding groups so they get both individual attention in her setting as well as the benefit of group settings, which helps them as they approach school age. Our children have both thrived with her and have excellent social skills and speech development. There are opportunities for arts and crafts, physical play on the trampoline or cars in the garden as well as quiet time reading. Mngaweya has also supported us through the milestones of parenting two boys, including potty training. With really good communication we've always been aligned in our approach. Even though Mngaweya hosts children of different ages at her setting, she has always catered to each of our boys' needs and they both come home raving about their day. She also keeps us well informed about their day with a daily diary and photographs of their activities. Since reopening, post-lockdown, the Covid protocols have been excellent and, despite the changes, the boys haven't been unsettled by it at all. We would be happy to recommend Mngaweya's childcare to anyone.
