About Me

I previously worked for a large corporation within thier HR and Management Team. After having my two children, I decided it was time for a career change. I wanted a career which was fulfilling, something I enjoyed and would give me the flexibilty to spend more time with my children.

I started training within the childcare sector around 5 years ago. I have always had an interest in childcare and early years development. Initially I assisted in an after school club and volunteered with Homestart an organisation which assists families who have young children and require assistance establishing a routine with the child.

I completed my EYFS level 3 qualifications 4 years ago and became an Ofsted registered childminder just over two years ago. I have fast become a popular option for childcare in the Colnbrook /Datchet/Windsor and adjacent areas. My local school is Pippins Primary School & C of E Colnbrook school.

The children, the parents and friends would describe me as a happy, fun and approachable person. I am constantly striving to provide the best service I can for the families I work with, as you can see from my reviews, the families I work with have provided wonderful feedback, so please feel free to get in contact if you have any quieries.

My Experience

I have experience working with children of all ages, from diverse backgrounds and with different abilities. I continue to work with a charitable company in Slough (Homestart) which I have volunteered with, for 3 years. I have also gained experience working at an after school club in Whitton.

Over the past five years I have had the opportunity to work with many talented and wonderful children, watching them progress and learn, both through education and play, has been a great experience.

A great aspect of my role as child carer is that I am constantly learning and adapting to meet the needs of the children. I ensure the activities, outings and sports keep the children stimulated and entertained, this is achieved by varying the schedules throughout the term. It is also important for me to understand each childs preferences as no two children will enjoy the same activities.

My Qualifications

I have a degree from Coventry University In Business & Human Resources.

I have recently achieved my NVQ level 3 in childcare. I have completed all of the necessary first aid qualifications and am registered with Ofsted.

My last Ofsted inspection was on the 18th of June 2019 where I achieved a Good.

My Availability

Im available from 7am-7pm Monday-Thursday and 7am-6pm on a Friday. I am flexible with parents working shifts or those who need to drop the child before school to complete a commute into work.

Preet and her team are amazing. Our daughter has been going regularly to Little Simba’s for almost 10 months now.

Initially we were looking for somewhere that could look after our daughter for 12 hours a day so we could both work in London with minimal expense. We didn’t realise how lucky we were when we found Preet. Both her and her team are excellent.

Our daughter has come on leaps and bounds since going to Little Simba’s. She is more engaging, learns new words daily and communicates much better with us. Little Simba’s are very friendly, professional and provide a full educational package.

We highly recommend Little Simba’s.

My daughter started here in January 2019. It is hard to leave your child to someone you just met. However Preet made me feel comfortable quite easily. Now my daughter happily goes to her and says goodbye to me. She has grown to be a confident child. Preet takes great care of my daughter in every aspect ( food, hygiene, learning,etc) which is what you want from a childminder. I recommend her to everyone without any hesitation. 🙂

Going back to work after 13months at home with my little girl was the most frightening thing i have ever experienced! No one was going to be able to look after my baby the way i do! Preet made life so easy! She has helped with my baby’s development and she comes home having learnt something new everyday! She is happy and looks forward to going to Preet’s house everyday! I cant thank her enough for looking after my baby & giving me the piece of mind i need! We love you!

My daughter started going to Preet when she was 10 months and barely crawling. She's 16 months now, running around, laughing, smiling and dancing! Preet has been so wonderful in looking after my daughter and aiding with her development. Preet has given my daughter a safe and secure home environment around other children and this has helped her become very confident, sociable and independent. I have a daily journal of what my child has been doing, what she's eaten and how long she has slept so I know how she has been through the day. I also receive pictures which brighten up my day. Highly recommended.

Sadly I need to leave Preet,
My daughter and son went to Little Simba for almost 2years. When my daughter started she was 2 didn't talk as a mother I was worried but Preet always reassured me to give it time..now my daughter is 4 she is talking like chatter box! My children loves going to Preet, she provide a very safe, clean and family environment, I never worried! Children are in good hands with Preet, her mum and the assistance! My children will miss her!
