About Me

I am an experienced and qualified childcare practitioner. I was registered with Ofsted to provide childcare services from home as a childminder for last 14 years. However after changing my location I don't wish to provide childcare service from home anymore. Instead I am more than happy to travel to places to provide the same level of service as a babysitter.

I am bilingual and so can also cater the need of those children who have English as a second language as I am fluent in Hindi, Urdu and Punjabi.

As a person, I am freindly, approachable and sensitive to others needs. I believe in equal opportunities for all children regardless of their race and religion and inclusive practise for every child to achieve their full potential. I also beleive that every child is unique and don't just need a safe and secure environment but also enabling environment to flourish fully to the best of their ability.

I am fully aware of childrens' learning requirement by Govenment and Ofsted and follow the EYFS frame work for Early Years children in any setting.

I have done extensive training on all Areas of Childrens' Learning for example Primary Areas and Specific Areas and always put my knowledge into practice by following the requirement of keeping a profile & record of achievement for each EYFS child to track their learning and development. I provide children with lots of playing opportunities indoor and outdoor, keeping them stimulated and active as well as providing school age children some help & support with their home work.

I take preschool children to Stay and Play session and Childminders Network Groups at the local Children Centres where they have the opportunity to mix and socialise with other children, have a go at messy play or be creative with art and craft activities.

I take children to local libraries in addition to regular reading time at home to develop the love of books in their heart and instil the interest of reading from the start.

I operate a healthy eating policy and only provide children with healthy home made meals and snacks.

I am willing to support parents with potty training their children and getting their babies off dummy etc.

My Experience

I have done a Home Based Childcare Diploma, BTEC and NVQ level 3 in Childcare Learning and Development and have been privileged to receive a 'High Performance Childminder Award in Newham' in the year 2011.

I also worked in the nursery and school to gain work experience before becoming a childminder and now have several years of experience with children of all abilities and ages including special need children.

What I have learnt through my experience that Not one child is the same as the other and that an adult needs to find a way to teach the child as Plato said " Do not train children to learning by force and harshness, but direct them to it by what amuses their minds, so that you may be better able to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius of each".

Childminding children is an art and requires a lot of love and patience. I take my profession seriously and genuinely have the love of children at my heart.

I think it is rewarding to contribute in children's learning and development and seeing them grow in maturity.

I am very happy to have found the perfect childminder for my son. Kishwer has been minding my son for more than a year now. He feels totally at home in her set up.
She and her family is taking great care of him.the timings are flexible which helps me a lot as Iam working in various shifts. I am grateful to her as she accommodates vegetarian diet especially for him.
She enthusiastically manages my high energy son.
I get regular feedbacks including the new things he learns.
She also shares videos which I forward to my family members which makes them happy.
I will confidently recommend her childminding services.

Thank you so much for your positive and lovely feedback.

Siddharth has become like a family member, a little chap who amuses the whole family and keep us on our toes at the same time.

It is exciting for me to see him grow and develop and learn new skills.

Hope to continue minding him for as long as you need me.

Once again thank you for your trust. X

Kishwer and her family provided care for our 3 year ol before and after nursery for a term. Providing snacks and meals, Kishwer ensured Bella was very well looked after and provided a range with f activities within a very clean and safe setting.

She regularly sent videos of Bella which put us at ease knowing she was safe and happy.

We would definitely recommend Kishwer to families in the area.

Thank you so much Paul for your positive feed back on my setting and provision. It was a pleasure to look after Bella. Hope she is doing well. Tell her I miss her a lot. X

My son has been coming to Kishwer (Activekids Childcare) for two years now.

I had never used a childminder for my son before. I knew he would be quite challenging for any setting as I had been informed by his school and other play schemes that he had attended. My personal circumstances were affecting his behaviour. However now that i needed a home based childcare setting for him because of my work requirement (kishwer provides flexibility perfect for shift work), I found Kishwer through a friend.

I am amazed at how Kishwer has managed him despite his unruly or demanding behaviour time to time that now he follows my instructions more attentively as well as his general attitude has become much better towards others too.

Kishwer has very effective behaviour management policy (because it's worked for my son). She is consistent in her practice too.

She is loving and caring as well as fair and just. she strikes the right balance and is not prejudiced when it comes to dealing with children day to day matters. Her house is clean and welcoming. I have noticed kids love her setting routine and look forward to their snack time most as she always prepare fresh healthy snacks and meal for them.

Finally I don't need to look for another childcare provider anymore at least until I am in employment. Thanks Kishwer !
