About my home

I am a warm, friendly person with a down to earth approach to childcare. I'm calm and patient with a great level of literacy and communication skills. I have 3 older daughters who live with me and my husband. I have worked as a teaching assistant in mainstream schools for many years.

Working with children is what I love and enjoy the most and I feel privileged to offer quality care and high level education to every child. I live in a multicultural community and welcome families from all ethnicities, embracing diversity and inclusion.

Unique highlights


I love cooking and developing new, exciting recipes. This will be displayed in my service, as I will provide fresh and healthy home cooked (halal) meals. This will be catered around childrens specific needs and backgrounds. Children will enjoy getting involved in food preparation and baking, to develop new, easy cooking skills. They will also learn about the importance of nutrition and diet through practical and interactive activities in the kitchen.

Outdoor space

I live in a spacious 3 bedroom house with a large private garden. This garden has a grass area and a large patio space for children to run around and explore outdoor learning. The majority of activities will be set in this garden, such as outdoor sports games, creative art work and nature-based learning activities.


I have several years experience in teaching phonics to early years as a teaching assistant in primary schools. As a qualified teaching assistant, I have gained exemplorary knowledge and experience around the Read Write Inc. Phonics program. I have led groups of lower ability children in this programme and have seen their increased progression in reading and writing. I will, therefore, be implementing this teaching programme in my setting. I look forward to teaching phonics in a fun and interactive way at home. This will be done through singing and dancing to make phonics exciting.


I speak English as my first language, and I am fluent in Urdu and Punjabi.

What are others saying about Little Bluebirds tiney home nursery?


Hennah is a pleasure to work with and she goes above and beyond with every task! She has such a way with children. She takes time to get to know the child, their likes and dislikes and she incorporates this into her teaching. They respond well to her because she creates an environment in which they feel at ease and so they become excited and happy to learn. The children she works with make amazing progress, usually beyond expectations.

In the time I have known Hennah, she has shown nothing but an exemplary level of care to all of those in her life; whether previously as an SEN teaching assistant, as an upstanding and trustworthy individual in the community as a designated neighbourhood watch member, or as a mother. She has a proactive attitude which is both welcoming and engaging. This extends to her work with children; she is attentive to their needs, no matter how complex, including where children have come from difficult backgrounds or homes. Education is a high value to her, and this is reflected in the upbringing of her own children, who compose of students at leading London Universities entering modern professions, as well as the children she has and intends to work with. I believe that Hennah is equipped with all of the resources, knowledge, wisdom, and attitude to be the very best childminder she can be. I have no doubt in my mind that the children she works with will flourish in her partial care and under her watchful, maternal eye.
