Myself and Professional Context
Experience is life’s greatest teacher. For the past 17 years, I have mothered 2 wonderful children. My experience as a mother, as well as the significant role I played in raising my nieces and nephews, sparked within me a love for children. This spark resulted in me developing my knowledge base through formal training so that I was able to establish Nana’s Buzzy Bees. This child care business derived its name from my name, Nana Serwah Isliker, and was founded in 2006.
Since the company’s inception, I have earned several certifications and attended a variety of childcare workshops. I am an accredited child minder and a member of the Professional association for Childcare and Early Years (PACEY). I am also a member of the Brent children Come First Network. Each member of this organisation is assigned a network coordinator. This coordinator is responsible for observing the child care facility’s practices and support the facility’s owner’s professional development. My coordinator has been visiting my facility regularly and contributing to my professional development. Some of these visits have been unannounced.
Nana’s Buzzy Bees is based in my home in Kingsbury, London. I specialise in child care for children ranging from 0 to 4 years of age. I also pick up and drop off children between the ages of 5 and 12 who attend school or nursery. My commitment to you is providing a fun, engaging, and safe environment for your children to learn through play.
