What others are saying about this home...

Mariyah Mansha

Shastra(mum) has created a beautiful environment. My 11 month olds progress and development has been more than we could have imagined. He is reaching over on all his milestones. He is happy, content and well looked after. The excitement on his face when he realises where he is, is all the reassurance we need to know that he's in the right place.

Zavi & Friends Tiney home nursery, under the care of Shastra, has been a wonderful place for our 2-year-old son. He eagerly looks forward to each morning there and is consistently excited to go. We've witn essed remarkable growth and development in him during his time there. Shastra has truly created a nurturing and enriching environment for our little one, and we feel fortunate to have found her. Sharon


I 💯 recommend this childminder, she is more than you could expect, she is great, care, we are very happy to have her in our lives ❤️ my girls can't wait to come to her house 🏡 Oksana.


My son has only been at Zavi and Friends Childminders a few weeks, he loves going, enjoys the activities and most importantly has excelled within a few weeks of attending. Zavi and Friends Childminders offers a stimulating environment with a childminder who goes above and beyond childcare. Kirren.


My daughters attends Zavi and Friends, and she thoroughly enjoys it. Shastra makes a big effort in making the children feel comfortable and aid in their learning. She works around your availability which makes life much more easier. I really recommend this nursery, as there is so much play, fun and learning for your child. Shahreen
