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 two 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 hve completed all of the necessary first aid qualifications and am registered with Ofsted.

My Availability

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

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!

We have been with little simbas for the last 2 years and continue to do so. Currently she looks after my 4 year daughter who attends nursery and is with Preet during the afternoon (preet does the nursery pick up), in addition Preet also picks up my son from school when needed. Having moved in to the area a few years ago and having to transistion the kids to a new childminder, I was naturally very nervous. Preet did an exceptional job in getting to know he kids, building a relationship them and really creating that safe, family friendly environment for them to feel comfortable in. Preets flexibility when it comes to the kids has just been amazing- no problem is ever too big and rarely have I ever heard Preet say she is unable to do anything- it’s a very rare trait that you find in Childminder’s these days. Both kids are very happy, they have made many friendship, and even developed close relationship with her family. Highly recommended.

Preet is such a lovely person and she has really great manner with all the children in her care. Since my daughter Emma has been going to Preet I've been reassured that I made absolutly the right choice. I've seen daughters progress, she has learned more words, started to draw even she learned to use toilet instead of potty.
Me and my husband both working fulltime and Preet help us with our different shifts as she is very flexible.
As I am pregnant now and going for maternity leave we can just recommend Preet as she is providing extremely great care and Emma will miss her.
Thank you To you Preet and your family

As a mom it's always difficult to leave your child with a stranger you know nothing about. My husband and I visited Preet with our toddler, and immediately she went to Preet. We could see from first reaction that She was a very caring fun loving person and that her area was a very clean and child friendly environment. We haven't regretted putting our daughter in her more than capable hands. Our daughter just loves staying with her and we know that she is being well looked after. I would recommend Preet to all who is looking for their child to feel at home away from home.

Perfect childminder!!!
Preet was amazing. Eliza, my 4yr old girl absolutely loves going to her. Eliza really looks forward to going to her and I get to hear from eliza's nursery teachers too that how good she feels about preet.
Preet creates a perfect bond with children. she gets to know about your child and reacts accordingly. very flexible. very patient, safe and friendly.
as a mum I always worry about the kind of care my child receives and now I am perfectly happy to leave Eliza at preet's as
I knew she was safe and enjoying the stay at hers.
Thank you preet for all the loving care that you gave Eliza as you would give to your own child.

I would definitely highly recommend her to anyone whos looking for the best care for their children.
