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.

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.
I cannot recommend Chandrika and Vijay enough. Our daughters attend their setting before and after school and they both feel like part of the family. Chandrika and her husband Vijay have a natural way of making children feel comfortable and cared for. Their home is spotless and their purpose built nursery is a dream play den for our girls. On the days when our girls have been there for the whole day, Chandrika has taken them to parks and playgrounds, fed them a healthy lunch and filled their days with fun activities. Nothing is ever too much trouble for Chandrika and she keeps us updated with photos and feedback. We are so grateful to her and her family for giving us peace of mind while we are at work and highly recommend her.
I have been updated on a daily basis on how my child’s day has been. Being a first time parent has been difficult and leaving my baby in the childminder has been very helpful for me to have a time for myself and for work. Playing with other kids help my child develop her interpersonal skills. She does not want to go home each time I pick her up. Safe to say that she is truly enjoying her stay. My baby and I are leaving with a heavy heart due to relocation. She will truly miss her friends and her other family.
I was looking for a good Chilminder for almost a month before I found Chandrika. I liked her from the first time I stepped into her house. I liked how clean her house was, how the playing area was organised and how you could see from the way she was talking that she really loves children and she really loves her job. My son is so happy with her. He’s development it’s amazing. I couldn’t ask for a better Chilminder. Her everyday commitment to this children and the memories they make in her settlement will be forever.
I can’t praise enough all her hard work.
