About Me

Ofsted Good Provider Logo

Hello my name is Bal. I am a qualified and insured Ofsted registered childminder and I have over 20 years of childcare experience working in nurseries, private nurseries and as a special needs teaching assistant for 7 years.I am friendly, flexible and reliable. I am based in Stretford. I hold the following certificates in paediatric first aid, child protection, NVQ level 3 in childcare, Safeguarding and food and hygiene.

I am married and a mum of four children. 2 boys age 15 and 4 years old and 2 girls age 11 and 5.

I provide a smoke, pet free, warm caring and friendly environment for your child to learn and develop their skills using the 7 areas of learning as set out by Ofsted. my childminding business isn’t a nursery it is a home from home experience where your children will get to meet all their development milestones in a fun,caring and safe environment.

I have a fully enclosed back garden that is ideal for children to have lots of fun. I have a good sized play room that is stocked with lots of indoor resources e.g. games, books, musical toys,trains,dolls, puzzles and much more. I have a downstairs toilet and basin.

I will be attending lots of playgroups, play centres, parks and the library. Every day is different to give children the opportunity to meet other children of their age and develop their skills. I enjoy helping children to learn and develop and feel proud to be part of their lives even if it is for a short time. I believe children learn best through play so I like to make activities fun and focused around their interests.

All meals are freshly cooked to ensure your children are happy and healthy.

I also provide pick ups and drop offs to and from Moss Park school & other local schools.

If you would like any more information then please do not hesitate to contact me and I will answer any queries you may have.

Thank you.

My 2 year old girl and 4 year old boy have been looked after wonderfully well by Bal for a number of months now. They’ve flourished under her supervision, and never get upset when we drop them off.

Bal has also been flexible and supportive, especially during the stand times of the pandemic.

Can’t rate her service and business highly enough.

I left my 5 year old son with Bal for 1 day. It was the first time i have ever used a child minder so i was quite nervous with what to expect and how my son would settle. My son had been going to nursery since he was 2 years old, so was familiar with the routine of me going to work and him going to nursery, school, holiday clubs etc, however he had never experienced staying with a child minder. My son did get a bit teary and upset a couple of times, however Bal did really well with reassuring and entertaining him. Bal has a beautiful home and the downstairs has been converted into a child orientated and safe zone with a homely feel. I didn't get to have a physical tour due to covid, but i did get to have a virtual tour. Bal sent me pictures of my son during the day which was lovely. She also catered for my sons dietary requirements. She ensured he had no allergies and provided him with a vegetarian diet and snacks during the day. Bal is very warm and happy individual, she is always smiling!

As my maternity leave was coming to an end I was really struggling to find a suitable childminder for my 10 month old baby.
I came across Bal’s profile on childcare website and got in touch with her. Bal was very friendly, accommodating and helpful. I was a bit nervous because my daughter was born in the pandemic in the midst of 2020 lockdown and therefore had not mixed with any other people apart from my husband and older daughter. Bal reassured me that my daughter was in safe hands. During the settling-in weeks, she sent me lots of photos and videos throughout the day. This helped me calm down a bit and gain confidence in the whole setting.
Bal and Gee are fantastic with kids! They provide lots of activities throughout the day and I have definitely noticed a big difference in my little ones social skills after she joined their setting. At the end of each day, Bal shares detailed info of how the day went by including activities they did, meal menus, nap times and nappy changes. So glad to have found rainbow childminders!! I would definitely recommend them!

I first met Bal a few days before the 2 weeks holiday, she was so friendly and i knew that both of my children would be happy being looked after by her, Bal is a fantastic childminder and provides lots of activities for all children and me and my husband are so happy. Xx

Our daughter has been going to Bal and Gurdas since February 2021. They have worked hard to help her settle in and play more independently. Bal provides meals, snacks and refreshments and sends pictures of our daughter participating activities during the day, she will also send a schedule of when our daughter ate, napped, how many times she had her nappy changed and activities she engaged in as well as what our daughter ate. Bal follows the routines we have in place and will also take a responsive approach if our daughter's needs change. We are also really pleased with the efforts Bal and Gurdas take to ensure their home is as safe as possible in relation to COVID-19.
