I am an Ofsted registered and first aid trained childminder based in Hackney, London. I am also a member of the childminding network. I provide high quality childcare in which children develop and learn a variety of skills set in a safe and caring environment. I live right opposite London Fields park and have a shared communal garden and an outdoor terrace.
I believe in stimulating and nurturing children so they can develop into curious, confident and independent individuals. My ratios are low, which enables me to cater to every child's individual needs.
Hackney has good transport links, including Hackney Central, Dalston Junction and London Fields as well as many local buses.

I have been a childminder for the past 4 years, working with children from 6 months to 8 years. I have 2 children of my own and our home is very much a home away from home for the children in my care. I provide a warm, relaxed, comfortable and safe environment where children develop and enjoy educational activities. I routinely take the children to various children centers, soft play, parks, toy libraries and museums etc.
I am able to to provide a fun and safe environment to meet children's individual needs to the best of my ability, providing the children with a range of fun , creative and educational activities indoor and outdoors.

Below are the latest reviews for Syeda. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.
Our daughter has been going to Syeda's since she was 11 months old. She is now about to turn 3 years. From the start Syeda's loving and fun environment has been a place where she is happy. She has always been excited to go to Syeda's home and for me as a parent I feel so lucky I have never had to worry about her whilst I have been at work.
Syeda is so knowledgeable about childcare but the attention she provides is individual and loving.
I have no idea how she manages it but our daughter will only nap with her and from the very start she was sleeping happily with syeda ( whilst we were struggling!).
We have noticed her develop in her language and confidence and I believe a large part of this comes from Syeda.
We recently had another baby and Syeda supported our daughter with the emotions of becoming a big sister.
Syeda has provided support to us as parents negotiating milestones through her advice and experience. She is always calm and thoughtful.
Our daughter has made great friends at Syeda's who she talks about all the time. She is independent and confident in social situations. I believe that this is great preperation for starting school or nursery.
I can't recommend Syeda enough!
We adore Syeda. Our son has been with her since September 2020, when he was 2 1/2. He was previously at a nursery but left there in March 2020 when London went in to lockdown and we were happy to have an excuse to leave. We were delighted to find Syeda and only wish we'd found her sooner, but he's now 3 1/2 and about to start pre-school so very sadly it's time to move on. Syeda provides such a warm and loving environment. When she greets the children it's so warm and heartfelt, and if they need comforting she gives them proper cuddles! She really treats them all as individuals - makes such an effort to understand their likes and dislikes, and when she communicates their needs to us as parents you can feel how much she cares. Our son loves the activities they do together - it's a lovely creative mix of play and learning - and he really enjoys going over to the playground in London Fields with his friends. Syeda is so generous and patient, whilst setting all the right boundaries. Our son loves going there and has developed hugely. Potty training was a breeze because Syeda was so gentle and encouraging with him. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Syeda - we will miss her greatly.
My overall experience with Syeda was very good. I started to look for a childminder when my daughter was around 9months old. Looking for a childminder as a first time mom was a stressful experience as I wanted to make sure my daughter was in good care. I was very worried that I wasn’t going to find a good carer after interviewing a few until I meant Syeda.
Right away I was impressed when I stepped into her house. Her setting felt very safe for my daughter to play in and Syeda showed me her portfolio of fun activities she does with children. She seemed very organized and structured and well-experienced. I was so happy she had availability.
It didn’t take long for my daughter to like Syeda as well. During her settling in, she did cry but she was well settled in with Syeda in no time and got comfortable being with her. Honestly every time and till this day when I bring her to Syeda’s house in the morning, her face lit up and a huge smile is on her face when she see her door. It’s like it is one of her favourite places to go to.
As a first time mom going back to work, I’m grateful Syeda became my daughter’s childminder. I know she is in good hands. I’m very happy she does daily activities with my daughter, such as playing in the park, go the library children’s museum and visit the children centre.
Sending our son to Syeda was the best decision we could have made . When I first went to meet Syeda , she was so warm and listened to my needs . As a first time mum I was so nervous to leave my child with someone, but I knew from meeting Syeda that she would care for him the way my family would . He met so many wonderful friends and each day he would be entertained and encouraged . His interacting and social skills and his confidence soared in her care.
Syeda and her team have become our second family in London. Max, my son, adored his time with Syeda, Angema and Irene . They are wonderful with the children and Syeda's house is full of colour , laughter and love . If you are looking for a childminder who nurtures , cares and encourages your child then Syeda and her team are the best .
I have up until very recently used Syeda’s childcare service for my son.
Syeda is an absolutely amazing, caring and thoughtful childminder and her team are very supportive and nice. Although my son was attending childcare only twice a week for a period of 10 months, the development of different skills was noticeable every time he came back home. The variety of creative and educational activities included outdoor games, different painting techniques (we have lots of drawings hanging on the wall now), role play, crafts, singing and many more..
My son is very attached to me so I had fear in the beginning with regards to childminding, but Syeda managed to find a way to calm his stress and also comforted me.
Also, the connection between parents and the team was excellent. We received daily feedback on our son’s achievements. We absolutely enjoy the photo book that was personally made for every child. Syeda is tracking child’s progress and suggests suitable activity to develop more and more skills. During special occasions e.g Christmas, Birthday, she made an extra effort to do some really sweet presents.
We trust Syeda, since she is very experienced and reliable and would definitely recommend her to others.
