We've used Inesa's childminding services for 5 years. She's looked after both of my children from approx 11months to starting school and nursery. My children have been well cared for, played with, entertained and educated all within a loving home environment. And I like that she has cats and a garden - we live in a fourth floor flat and have neither of these so it's nice for the children to experience a different type of home. The childminding set up is great, with a large room with lots of toys and access to the garden. Ultimately you don't leave your children with someone for 5 years unless you completely trust them and are happy with the service they provide.

We initially used a popular nursery (based in Stoke Newington) for our daughter and although the care provided was great, with a large number of other children for her to play with… we found the hours of operation to be very restrictive for our needs (which is true for most nurseries TBH). Both my wife and I work outside of London and therefore are dependent on trains and public transport running effectively for our transport needs. This means that if a train is cancelled or a road accident occurs, neither of us could guarantee to get back to the nursery on time to collect our daughter (which was very stressful for us both).

A friend recommended N16Childminder and although we were initially apprehensive whether the level of childcare would comparable with the nursery, switch to N16Childminder was probably the best decision we made.
We were really impressed with N16Childminder childcare knowledge, professionalism and attitude. She regularly provided us with detailed reports on our daughter progress and supported us helping to weaning our daughter from milk to solid foods and toilet training.

Her childcare setting was also impressive, providing a large play area, filled with toys and activities with additional outdoor greenspace (including a slide – which our daughter loves!). We found our daughter was also never lonely and we generally have at least 2-3 other children of similar age to play with daily.
Finally, we really appreciated Inesa’s flexibility to meet our childcare needs, always happy to extend our childcare service hours adhoc if we were running behind (which meant we did not need to feel so stressed out rushing back).

Thank you N16Childminder!

Inesa (N16Childminder) provided childcare services to both our children from ages of 6 months until they both entered full-time reception.

Both my wife and I (as well as our children) really appreciated the level of service and support Inesa provided us with during our time with her. Her childcare setting is impressive with large open spaces for the children to play in and our children were always excited to return again.

We were also very impressed with the level of early education she provided and are especially appreciative of the basic French and Urdu she imparted to both our children (and us!).

We highly recommend her services and will definitely use her service again in the future.

I have had a fantastic experience from the moment I met Inesa. She is very kind and flexible her home is spacious and comfortable. My daughter has been going to Inesa so I am able to work full time since she was 6 months old she's turning 2 in September. I appreciate her personal and working experience and the advice to incorporate in my own parenting. I am provided with daily updates and information regularly and pictures plus things that she has done over the day to put on the fridge. My daughter comes home singing rhymes and all the movements to go with them. Sometimes cries when its time to leave her home. I am very happy and wont be changing childcare options until pre school. I would like to say I am a very hard woman to please and I have no complaints. Would and have recommended to family and friends. It's difficult to leave your child to work but I know shes in safe hands.

Our daughter started going to Inesa when she was a year old, her first time in childcare, which went very well. She went full time to Inesa for a while and then transitioned over to nursery but carried on going to Inesa a day a week for a few months. We still go back to Inesa whenever we need extra childcare. Inesa is welcoming, cheerful, full of warmth with all the children and clearly very experienced. She's super flexible about days and hours which is absolutely brilliant given life in general. We also really appreciate the home cooking, and as a bilingual home we love that Inesa can also speak in either English or French with our daughter. Definitely recommend!
