About Me

I'm an Ofsted registered, accredited network childminder, rated "Good" by Ofsted in my last inspection. I am married and have two children. My husband is an IT consultant. We are both CRB checked. I hold a full UK driving licence and fully insured.

I provide high quality care and education for children in a caring family environment. I work in partnership with parents to help children to learn and develop. I offer children and their parents a service that promotes equality and values diversity.

Parents are regarded as members of our setting who have full participatory rights. These include a right to be:
- valued and respected;
- kept informed;
- consulted;
- involved and included at all levels.

I aim to ensure each child:
- is in a safe and stimulating environment;
- is given generous care and attention.
- has the chance to join in with other children and adults to live, play, work and learn together;
- is helped to take forward her/his learning and development by being helped to build on what she/he already knows and can do
- is in a setting that sees parents as partners in helping each child make satisfying progress;
- is in a setting in which parents help to shape the service I offer.

I provide a wide range of fun and stimulating toys, puzzles, books and equipment for all ages. I am qualified to provide nursery education for 2 to 4 year olds. I have an enclosed garden with lots of outdoor toys and activities. I provide healthy and nutritious home cooked meals and also cater for special dietary requirements. Some of the activities that i do with the children are cooking, gardening, arts and crafts and painting. I am also happy to assist school aged children with their homework.
I provide outings to the library, parks, lake, nature walk, farms and to various toddler groups and children centres, where they can engage in play and learn sessions.

I accept childcare vouchers, and government tax free childcare scheme.

Neelofer has looked after my daughter for over a year and she is a fantastic childminder. The activities planned for the children are fun and engaging and my daughter has learnt so much; her confidence has also improved. Neelofer’s setting is fantastic - lots of toys for the children to play with and excellent craft and cooking activities. I can not recommend Neelofer enough - a great childminder!

Neelofer is very professional and that means very kind and motherly with the children: security is key, learning is important with many many games. She looks after both our sons after school and they always go happily, playing very well, eating well and reading / counting / writing as needed. I highly recommend her!

The best I have found for my son who loves her so much. I have seen lot of improvement in my child especially his interest in reading and learning. Doing things independently. He loves books and library so much now. Very good teacher as well. She updates daily activities with the child. Cooks and serves all organic and healthy food. Does variety of activities for child development. Very flexible and accommodates as per our requirement. I have recommended her in the past and will highly recommend her if you are looking for a childminder.

My daughter has been cared for by Neelofer for more than a year and she's progressed very well. She is happy every time she goes to her childminder. Neelofer is committed to her job, she is caring and the children are involved in many different activities which they enjoy. Neelofer is flexible with her hours, which helps when i'm finishing late and overall i'm very pleased with her and i can recommend her to others.

Our daughter has been going to Neelofar since she was 2.5 years old. Neelofar was amazing in getting our daughter settled and also made time to reassure us that all was well. Neelofar provides a home away from home environment for the children and has a nurturing manner about her. Our daughter has progressed extremely well with Neelofar. Neelofar is extremely flexible and has been able to care for our daughter at short notice due to our work commitments. Neelofar strives to prepare our daughter academically so that she is ready for school. Neelofar is also happy to provide advice and guidance if you are experiencing any difficulties/changes that occur naturally with children. She is highly motivated and provides a consistent high level of care offering varied activities that are both interesting and educational for our daughter. We would not hesitate to recommend Neelofar as a child minder.
