A few words from parents and carers

Testimonials - Emma Durrant - Childminder - Benfleet - Essex

We often get asked if we have any good recommendations from other parents and/or carers so below are a few of our latest ones. As we get more the ones at the top will eventually get replaced by the newer ones. Thank you to those parents who wrote them too, we appreciate your kind words :)

A Fantastic Team!

Sophie, Hany and their children are a very welcoming family. My son is with them five days a week. Although he has only been with them for a couple of months so far he has settled in very quickly and has grown very fond of them.

I was concerned about the transition with having to move my son from a nursery where he had plenty of room to burn off his surplus energy. However, my son took to them instantly and Sophie and Hany have proven that he can thrive just as well in a smaller childminding setting; In fact, I feel he benefits more from the attention and development opportunities of the more intimate environment. Hany's influence is perfect to keep my son balanced as he does not have the benefit of a male role model at home every day.

Their own children are a superb reflection of them, and I feel comfortable in the knowledge that their children are a great example to my son when they come home from school. They are always incredibly polite, calm and well mannered.

My son thoroughly enjoys the home cooked food which Sophie and Hany provide, and he often goes back for more! His general behaviour has also improved at home since he has been with them.

They are a fantastic team and I would highly recommend their services!

Excellent Childminder!

Sophie and Hany are excellent childminders and I would be happy to recommend them to any one.

I was so worried when I had to go back to work but my 10 month old son adjusted very well in their care. They have a warm welcoming home and a lot of activities for the children. He picked up so many new things in their care. Sophie is a very loving lady and Hany is equally enthusiastic with kids.

I was really happy with the care my little one got in Angels academy and am happy that I chose them.

This is the best decision we ever made about our son's childcare! Sophier and Hany are a great team and are brilliant carers for children. You feel at home as soon as you step in their house. Their own children are very polite and play with the little ones which I think is very important. Our son enjoys it there every time and when I come to pick him up he is always happy.

Would highly recommend!

The Perfect Choice.

I would recommend Angels Academy to any Parent who is looking for an excellent level of childcare in the Reading Area. Sophie is a genuinely kind woman who has an affinity for children. She has a fun, happy, calm and friendly character. She is also very well informed of current positive approaches to childcare. Being a registered childminer she maintains a welcome and homely environment combined with the professionalism of having all the relevant safety precautions in place and corresponding paperwork.

Her husband Hany (who is CRB checked) is an absolute bonus to the package of childcare being offered by Academy Angels. He has a warm and loving character, he provides a positive male approach and undoubtedly an unspoken additional level of authority and safety to the overall childcare provided. My 18month Son took very quickly to both Sophie and Hany, reaching out to Hany for comfort when sleepy soon after he began being cared for at Angels Academy. The home is welcoming and has a large garden for lots of messy play, its situated close to the woods which offers ample opportunity for walks and exploring (Supervised of course).

I couldn't be happier with the reception received by the couple or with the care they provide. A 100% recommendation from me.

Sophier and Hany are fantastic. I was very nervous of leaving my daughter at 7 months to go back to work, but they put me right at ease. She has been there 2 months now and I could not be happier she is in a caring educational environment. Sophie and Hany have such a passion about childcare and entertaining the children. The home is a loving place and their children are so polite and welcoming and play happily with my daughter when they are home. Dropping my daughter off is relaxing due to the warmth you feel when you walk in the door.

My daughter loves it there and as soon as Sophie opens the door she give a huge smile showing me she is so happy and relaxed making it so much easier to go onto work. I would recommend Sophie and Hany to anyone looking for childcare you will not find better we love them.

Brilliant Childminder!

We have been so pleased with Sophie and Hany. I was very nervous about leaving my daughter for the first time at 9 months old but she is really happy there and I feel completely comfortable knowing that she is well looked after.

The whole family are always so welcoming and my daughter loves them. Sophie plans lots of activities for the children, indoors and outdoors, and my little one often brings home something she has made during the day. Sophie does lots of little extra things like taping episodes of my daughter's favourite TV programme so it is always there to watch.

Sohier has been really flexible with my changing work pattern and also done extra days at short notice.

I would definitely recommend her to any parent.

I have my two children currently with sohier, my daughter aged 2 an half and my son aged 6 months. I was very nervous about this whole childminding thing anyway but I beleive me an my partner have made the right choice with sohier, she is just fantastic with the children. They have been with her for about amonth now, and have settled in very well. She has 3 very polite and well mannered children which my daughter loves. Even when I drop and pick the children up I feel so relaxed in her home, its very family friendly! When I drop the children off I feel confident that they are in safe hands. I would easily recommend her to any parent looking for childcare as she is just great at her job!

Sophie & Hany have been taking care of my 2 year old daughter for past six months now. My daughter had been going to nursery for quite some time but never had an experience of childminder. I am grateful to Sophie and Hany for giving their time in our first meeting and providing me assurance. Also, my daughter felt quite happy in their company, right from the beginning. She goes to them five days a week and quite looks forward to go to their house and have fun.

Their home is very welcoming and both of them do an excellent job in keeping the kids engaged in various activities. Both Sophie and Hany appreciate the importance of fun with learning and help kids develop. Their own children are equally wonderful and great with little toddlers in their home. My daughter keeps telling me how much fun she has with Sophie's daughter!

Also, I would like to thank Sophie for the wonderful food that she makes for the kids. She magics up great tasting nutritious food that my fussy eater loves.

I would like to strongly recommend them to anybody who wants a loving and caring childminder for their child.

Everyday, my daughter fills with delight when she meets Sophie and Hany and happily waves my bye-bye. There is nothing more re-assuring than watching my daughter happy with them. Thank you Sophie, Hany! You and your children indeed make to great team!
