About Me

My name is Komal Patel. I am an OFSTED registered childminder. I live with my husband and a daughter (11 years old). My setting (Silver Spoon Day Care)/home is based in Rayners Lane, Harrow.

I emphasize in outstanding, professional and quality childcare facilities within the comfort of my home. I offer places from 6 months plus to eight years and over. I also provide breakfast mornings, school runs and after school care, making it a complete wrap around care for you child.

I have a child friendly, well planned and dedicated playroom offering a wide selection of educational and fun toys. All the adult led and child initiated activities will be age appropriate. I am committed to promote the prime and specific areas of Learning and Development within the EYFS guidelines, to help your child reach their full potential.

There is a safe and clear garden with easy excess from the play room, to ensure children can enjoy the outdoor space at all times. I welcome the children’s input and ideas with a mix of adult/child lead activities like role play, messy play, ICT, music, going to the local park, etc., ensuring your child has a fun filled, educational, active and a stimulating day.

I encourage healthy eating and provide healthy snacks, milk and water through the day. If your child has any special dietary needs I will be happy to discuss it further and do the needful.

I have got Public Liability Insurance in place and am a member of the Professional Association for Childcare and Early Years (PACEY).

We have our first child and came to London a few years ago. We do not know much about the culture and everything here. Komal was the first child minder I found and after meeting with her for the first time I felt comfortable and I could trust her and so I made the decision to send my son at 16 months old to be with her. I feel very safe leaving my son with her from 8:30am to 5:30pm on weekdays. Komal is very patient and pays a lot of attention to detail. My son learnt a lot of new things from her, he has had a lot of activities indoors as well as outdoors to play and learn everyday. He enjoys the practical activities such as painting, playing with toys, cars etc. Every morning he looks happy and looking forward to getting ready to go to the child minder. She has been excellent in teaching my son to read books, he now shows interest whenever he sees a book and is happy to try and read it or accounting numbers, which makes me really proud. I am very glad that she looks after my son and overall she is doing a really great job.

Thank you so much for such encouraging words. It means a lot to me and further motivates me to continue providing excellent care to the children. Kind regards, Komal

I have recently returned back to work and was looking for someone to provide childcare for my three year old son during the school holidays. Initially I was a little nervous as I was unsure how well my son would adapt to this new environment, however he settled very quickly thanks to Komal's warm and friendly manner. Her premises are very safe and clean with a wonderful outdoor space which my son absolutely loves. Komal always has fun educational activities for my son to get involved with as well as quiet times to relax and read story books. Her pastoral care is excellent and my son always looks forward to seeing her.

i start to put my daughter to daycare when she was 16 months as i am going to have the second baby and she was very attached to me. Aslo i want her to be independence and I can have sometime for myself.
The first week was very difficult, my daughter cried after i left but KOMAL is very kind and patient, she helped my daughter got used with new environment quickly with love and caring. the kids have a lot of activities there to play and learn. Also KOMAL and me have good contact so i don’t worry about my daughter. after 2 weeks, my daughter came back home happily. she learnt a lot of new things and be independent. i have more time for myself to rest. every morning she wake up and gets ready to go to daycare, she loves her teacher a lot. i can see a lot improvement from my daughter.

My children were really happy to go to Komal. She does various activities to keep their minds busy. My 10 year old and 5 year old both enjoyed a lot. While she gives them opportunity to do free play, they are in a very disciplined environment where they follow a schedule. She does indoor and outdoor activities and sometimes includes local walks which is so refreshing for the kids.Though I had to send packed lunch, but she always warmed it and served them properly. Along with it she provided fruits and yoghurt to the kids which is included in her package as a bonus. She does lots of age related activities. She encouraged my 5 year old to do activities that included phonics.I feel completely at peace of mind when i am at work and my kids are with Komal. I know they are safe and sound. I am glad that she looks after my children during holidays.She is doing a great job!
