Hello, my name is Chandrika. I am Ofsted registered childminder who loves working and enlightening their future to help them become the best they can be. I look forward to meeting you soon!
I have voluntarily worked with children for over 15+ years. I thrive to provide an outstanding service that meets the needs of parents as well as setting out a safe, caring and loving learning environment for the children.
I plan activities based on each child's individual needs and age and abilities. I understand child development is extremely important and therefore all of my day to day activities are based on the main learning areas,
-social and emotional development
-speech and language development
-fine motor skill development
-gross motor skill development
I have a well set up nursery transformed from my garage capable of holding up to 20 children as well as a separate play area in the center of my home. They are both stimulating areas with various activities for different children along with a local park minutes away from my home. I regularly explore new areas and parks with the children in my care for them to expand their imagination. Other activities include:
Arts & craft
and many more
I take pride in following the guidelines set out by OFSTED and EYFS for a safe and flourishing environment. I am insured by PACEY.
I have 26 years of experience working with children. I have 3 children of my own, whom I have raised into wonderfully independent and kind adults.
I have worked with kids ranging from 3 months- 15 years.
From having lived in this area from 26 years, I know where the local parks are and what time is the best time to take the children. I know which routes are best to pick up the children from their respective schools and I know the people who live in this area very well so I can say it is a safe neighborhood.

I'm so glad we found Chandrika when we were looking for childcare for our son (age3). Chandrika is caring, friendly and has made sure our son is happy and settled every time we dropped him off. Chandrika she has a lovely space for children to play and learn in. Our son really enjoys his time and comes home with lots to talk about. He especially enjoys playing with other children in Chandrika’s care.I very much recommend her to anyone looking for childcare.
Absolutely best place I could imagine for my son. He loves to be there and because me and my husband works a lot Chandrika’s nursery is my son’s second home and definitely Chandrika and her family is an extension of our little family.
She cares a lot of every aspect of taking care of all children.
I’m very happy I decided to give my son under such a good care.

Thank you so much for your beautiful words! Kubas family is our family too xox
Trying to find the perfect childminder is really hard and we seen a couple of distressing settings before finding Chandrika.
Her house was immaculate, so clean and everything perfectly organized. She made me feel welcome straight away and had a binder full of legal documents ready for me. I could tell she knew exactly what she was taking about being an educator myself.
Our baby girl is going to the care of Chandrika and her family since she is 4 months and a half, and they did everything they could to help her settle during those particular Covid times. We feel part of the family and that was very important for us to find a warm and loving environment for our baby. Our baby is growing in a nurturing environment where she is thriving, thanks to all the activities she is doing during the day. She is surrounded by friends and family, and is learning so fast being with older children. She is smiling every morning and we know she will be well taken care of.
We couldn't have dreamt of a better place for our baby to be !
Chandrika is very good and family oriented. She has been a lovely childminder to my daughter who used to attend in her early years. We find her to be very supportive, caring and flexible to our needs. My daughter had a lovely time going to Chandrika. She also used to provide good healthy home made food so there was no worry in terms of providing packed food.
Our two children (5yr old and 20 months old) have been going to Chandrika and Vijay’s childminding provision for 7 months and we couldn’t recommend them high enough. The children are stimulated, have lots of fun and always look forward to their time with Chandrika and Vijay. We are thrilled to have found such wonderful childminders.
