Hello my name is Tricia, I am an Ofsted Registered Childminder in Isleworth area. I live with my husband Paul and our three daughters.
Full time places for under 4 will be available from September 2023 but can book your place for September intake from July 2023 , my 4 year olds will be joining full time at school.
And part time places for those starting Nursery soon and I can provide the extended 15 hours if child goes nursery and want extra hours with childminder till you return from work for parents who qualify for 30 hours funding partly in school and shared with Childminder.
I have 3 children if my own; Hope who is 15 years old heading to Yr 11 and Faith 14 years old soon be in Yr 10 and little sister Holly 8 years old soon in Yr 4 attending The Blue school in Isleworth. So any parents who would like support with school runs from Blue School or St Mary Primary school I can support where possible;
As a childminder, I also offer the 30 hours funding, so your child if can't attend Nursery setting for 15 hours and you would like a home -based setting like in our homes , ever since we experienced the challenging times of Covid-19 most parents would prefer us childminders as our ratios not such big hence great too for your little ones to continue to thrive in a warm and comfortable home environment as we all keep them safe and ensure their wellbeing / learning is progressing well as support their needs and interests !
My aim is to provide a warm, safe and caring environment for your child with lots of activities suitable for each child's age/stage of development. I offer a wide range of healthy meals and snacks. I make good use of the local play groups ( due to Covid-19 most play groups closed but it was my routine to take children to meet other children and interact, engage when visit play groups), libraries and parks where I take the children regularly for fun activity days which the children enjoy most.
At the moment, looking after 6 children with help of my assistant my Mum Sarah and great team to be able to meet all your children’s needs and interests!
Our youngest toddler is now 19 Months , rest as I was looking after them before turning 3, parents decided to forego nursery places in school due to our last few years of coming back to work in the “New Normal of being from Lockdown” and all been learning so well and progressing great in my setting due to the more one to one attention ; each child will get, in our smaller home environment which works so great for children experiencing separation anxiety from their parents!
During the month of July, we send off in style our graduates as my setting now been 2 years celebrating our leavers and makes them feel very special as family and friends join us in setting to say farewell to all transitioning to primary school to start Full time Reception class .
All will be so much missed as some of them been in my care when just 1; all adore me, calls me "Aunty Patri" or "Aunty Trisha " which I feel loved and attached to them all and value each one as an Individual. And all separate from their parents securely as they leave to go to work or study and all the children feel safe and ready to enjoy their daily routine in my provision.
Not only, seen children come/go and when ready to transit to primary school, all sadly live us and we still hold their great memories shared together, like one of my SEN child who is now in full time school, but was so attached to me while looking after her and all the special time all children enjoy while in my care as get to play with my own children ; Rowan soon 4, Oscar 4 and Eilana 4 going to miss them from September 2023 as graduating to big school !
All children been so adorable to look after and with Ro who came while 11 months now almost 4 and all with friends bonded with us and have achieved a lot during their precious time to accept to be taught and learnt through all our fun and educational play opportunities and enjoyed our happy moments as one family. Your always welcome to visit us back in setting, happy to come back in holidays as Aunty Trisha and Aunty Sarah will always open the door to welcome you back all our lovely children who ever used our Trisha’s Childcare!
Not only, we ensure that all children interests /needs are met as we work closely with the parents to gain knowledge of the child and their experiences and work together as a family, share activities, socialise with my children at other times of the day when all back from school or during half terms holidays when all off school.
Through being a mother of 3, have experienced not only how to always keep my children at all times safe, see them develop and learn through play as they go through the stages of development from birth till now as they grow so big .
In the past years as a childminder, been looking after precious Sarah who came in my care when almost 8 months seen her grow now precious 10 year old, but did enjoy every moment with her as came in my care as early as 5am and mom felt safe and her daughter being loved so much as she’s away to start her early shift at work, only now that I moved out from the Bedfont / Feltham area had to move on.
Many other children who enjoyed my care miss them all Tian 12 who came in my care while 8 months as well, Lizzie 12 was 2 when came in my care, Eva and Chloe 6, Aisha almost 6 was just 1 but all came enjoyed play and the love I showed them while parents are at work , Keisha and Toby now above 17 years old but were in my care for after school club when 7 and 9 but all added to my experience working with all age group 7months to 9years.
All the above, ever used my childminding setting and gained experience since 2011 when registered and recently working with after school children 5 to 8 being collected from school and parents collect after work all added to working with children whose age band ranges from 8 months to 8 years !
And also by attending my course in Home based childminding wanted to work from home as I take care of my children at the same time taking care of other children in a healthy, safe and caring environment which requires a Daily routine and a Rhythm to their day, this will help them be comfortable when they know what to expect each day and if they know whats next, they are free to explore and most of all, understand the different cultures we all come from with respect hence I promote British values in my setting children from a young age need to respect each other from all the little things they experience in play as they learn and develop.

Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.
I would like to share our feelings and opinion on Trisha’s nursery. I can clearly say that it was the best decision ever, we did not expect anyone to give so much love to our son as Trisha gives. Meeting her was a miracle, was something of this world. This is not just a normal nursery, this is love and develop home fulfilled with positive energy and right manners.
Our son Oscar joined the setting and only speaking polish as we are Polish family; English was second language and Oscar didn’t know any English word at all but within 5 months in settling in so well, he was able to speak fluently and make three word or more in a sentence.
He enjoyed play in a rich environment where all children are welcomed and involved in lots of different fun and educational activities both indoors and outdoors; all favourite place is the trampoline , and other activities enabled him to learn and develop his language better around his friends in all areas of learning.
Proud parents as Oscar is more ready for reception full time in school from September after achieving a lot during the 1 year like writing his name Oscar , other names of his favourite heroes like Sonic, Mario, Luigi, learnt to count and identify his numbers 1-10 , know some letters in alphabet, messy play with dough, paint , foam and rhythms / songs he learnt through music and dance sessions / learnt days of the week a song all enjoyed singing at circle time with friends at Trisha’s Childcare and his teachers aunties Tricia and Sarah.
We are very proud of him and how he looks forward each day to go to the setting to learn and have fun games with all friends and teachers.
Response by Trisha on 22/11/2023:
Jerzy and Klaudia, so humbled for your amazing review about our Trisha’s Childcare. We surely miss our active, talkative, dedicated to accomplish his goals/ work, so neat, friendly and humbled Oscar.
Your son Oscar indeed was an angel! Good listener, cooperated very well with his peers as always solved problems for friends being every one loved being around him. His imagination was incredible when begun to incorporate his language skills using favourite super heroes like Mario, Sonic, Luigi which helped him to even become more popular around his friends being he could recite the whole story/ movie speaking more fluently about all characters in any movie and his communication became outstanding.
Your son indeed made us very proud within the 5 months after settling in, he could write his name so well, he listened with attention to our morning session; reading or special time when all children after being dropped off and settled in, we followed a special routine simple pedagogy but really made all enjoy our morning sessions as it’s adult-led before snack time and all learnt and developed in both prime and specific areas of learning using friendly games like what’s in my bag or bucket , learnt days of the week using songs, learnt about the weather and months of the year and hygiene to wash hands before eating , using the toilet as got to understand simple rules which all is required to know as prepared him and friends for reception class.
Oscar and friends all loved our outdoors environment where they played in areas like tree house then slide, trampoline time was their favourite; always made their day, sand area, messy or sensory play on the tuff tray with different resources and all was freely in reach / initiated well and child-led which enabled them to explore, collaborate and interact with one another as studying outdoor thinking and have gained more knowledge / understanding why it’s very important children to use natural resources or enjoy the nature as know better the world around them and that gave Oscar the freedom to enjoy play time throughout the long day at Trisha’s Childcare!
As dad mentioned only knew polish, didn’t know any word in English and within 5 months was fluently speaking so well in three or more word sentences; learnt his numbers well while counted 1- 20 or more , learnt his alphabets, new nursery rhymes such as; ‘going in a bear hunt, loved follow the leader song, Waka waka dance moves as we used these songs to exercise in the trampoline and all children loved these happy moments’ that was incredible to watch Oscar develop very quickly with our pedagogy and how we engaged and supported all children despite their age, race, religion, colour or gender / disability, Oscar felt always so welcomed and bonded with us adults very well to separate from parents when dropped off happily compared when he started and he made a good relationship and felt comfortable and secure throughout the 1 year he was with us to get him ready for school.
We are very grateful to have worked with such a wonderful, humbled Polish family and very blessed being all my 12 years of service got experienced with many children from polish families and all come when only know their polish language, English is second language but with my miracle touch thankful to God for using me and my mum (Aunty Sarah children call her) and guiding us do our job so well with Love to all the children in our care / setting.
And different cultures/ religions have enjoyed our services and very proud of all our efforts while working with all different families who feel welcomed and their children after a long day in setting, when picked up will cry out loud still want to play !
Always come to visit Jerzy and Klaudia, Oscar welcome anytime he feels want to comeback say hello to friends and his teachers! We are very proud of him and I know in his new reception class / primary school, his teachers very proud of him!
Blessings and Good luck for Oscar’s future!

Thank you Rick for uploading again my feedback reply to the parents.(Jerzy and Klaudia).
Also, one more question are you able to change my username from Trishpol to Trisha’s Childcare? As noticed parents struggle to find me ! Thank you Rick. Bless you !
Our son, Azlan, has been attending Trisha's childminding service for the last six months, and our experience has been nothing short of exceptional.
After a difficult start with a previous provider, we're pleased to say that Azlan grew fond of Trisha very quickly.
Trisha's superb organisational skills stand out immediately. Her constant updates, furnished with photos and videos, are a source of immense relief, ensuring that we are always aware of Azlan's progress. It is a heartening sight to see him cheerful and engaged in her care. We would also like to call out the valuable contribution Aunty Sarah makes to Azlan’s childcare.
The activities Trisha provides are varied and engaging, offering a good balance of fun and learning. Azlan seems to be enjoying them, which is a positive sign. The outdoor space with the slide, water play, painting, and trampoline, offers plenty of enjoyment. Indoors, there's a good variety of toys and other activities that keep the children occupied.
Azlan seems to be quite content under Trisha's care, and we've noticed that he's happy to attend each day. Trisha's childminding service offers a safe and stimulating environment that we believe is beneficial for Azlan's development.
Overall, we're very pleased with the services provided at Trisha's childminding and would definitely recommend it to parents who are looking for a reliable and well-rounded childminding service.

Aunty Sarah and Trisha.
Thank you Aunty Trisha for looking after my 2.5 year daughter Maja old for a week when I came to London to stay with friends and needed some space for work and errands. You were so welcoming and she had a much nicer time and productive time with you and her new friends. Trisha has a fantastic set up with activities, slide, trampoline etc in garden and fantastic room for activities, learning and play. I noticed real progress and change in Maja within a week, so anyone there longer will be well taken care of. It was lovely to have photos and video from day and little personal report on activities that I could send back to her Daddy. We loved your flexible, thoughtful, warm approach and miss you all. If I lived permanently in Iselworth we would definitely look no further than Aunty Trisha and Aunty Sarah! It’s brilliant. Thank you. Hopefully we’ll be back again soon.
Response by Trisha on 22/10/2022:
Wow! Thank you Aunty Minna for your outstanding feedback about the great services and care Angel Maja experienced from our Trisha’s Childcare ! We dearly missed her after her great special moments she had shared with us mostly her new friends each day when she had left , could ask if she’s coming today ? And had to convince them she will come back again when return back to London since she has gone back to Sweden bless you both !
It was short time but we loved every day/ moment that Maja came to play and engage with her new precious friends in our setting and whenever you return to London , there’s always a place for Maja ready to come join us for play dates Aunty Minna ; We are so humbled for having met you such a blessed family and down to earth to meet new friends, always here for you and Maja welcome anytime you return to Isleworth.

Aunty Sarah and Aunty Trisha ❤️⭐️
Tricia is the best childminder I could possibly wish. My daughter is now 4 and has been with Tricia since just turning 2. She absolutely loves Aunty Tricia, as she calls her. She asks me every day , even on weekends if she is going to Aunty today. But I am not jealous because I can see how happy and well cared for my child is while I am at work. She thrived while in Tricia’s care and she is so well prepared for learning in school in September. She did not miss on Nursery provision because Tricia had everything and more that every Nursery has in terms of resources and planning plus an amazing outdoor space where children play together having fresh air and plenty of physical activities. It is obvious that this is Tricia’s passion not just a job, that she really cares for the children and their families. She helped many times when I needed as a working parent of 3 children. Also when I had to go to hospital for an operationTricia stepped in with her support and understanding! I am for ever grateful. Thank you Tricia. My girl developed amazing friendships at Tricia’s, she knows various nursery rhymes and songs and books and stories she recites , of by heart. She participated in many beautiful events for Christmas, Ester and Birthdays and just recently an amazing Graduation organised by Tricia! My daughter is so rich in amazing experiences! Tricia puts her heart into her job and she understands child’s stages of development and needs, so they are safe well cared for and thrive! Thank you Tricia . We will miss you so much and all these blissful times in your lovely, sunny garden! You are so kind and loving and patient and we wish you all the happiness in the World. Anna and family ❤️
Response by Trisha on 02/08/2021:
Wow! Bless you Anna for such an Amazing feedback about my service and how proudly your daughter truly enjoyed my time in my care.
Surely, E has progressed so brilliantly in my care as mum mentioned and to add on, I aimed to ensure all my toddlers by the time they transit to full-time, must know how to hold their pens /crayons using tripod grip and able to write their first names, very impressed that your daughter E is now able to write her name, recite numbers 1 to 20 or even more, alphabet letters can write out some letters using upper or lower case. Very proud of her progress by the end of our summer term and I know at her new full-time school, her teacher will be very impressed with her.
Physically, she's active and with support to ensure all receive enough exercises during the day than sitting down, we have a massive trampoline which can accommodate all my little ones during any session either morning or afternoon and this is favourite place as soon as all arrive, request aunty Trisha can we go jump but we have our morning routine which all follow, E and friends all gained great setting values which was to help them to get ready for school and all learnt to be good Listeners, show respect and kindness to friends and adults around them, learnt to share as also wait to take turns, all been well behaved respond well to set up setting boundaries which your daughter E has cooperated so well even support her friends in case they break them, she will remind peers as was like a mediator/ solves well problems if friends not getting on well as all wanted to be the ones playing with her hence being in the middle to tell them ideas which they would follow and carry on playing nicely after great negotiation.
I will surely miss your daughter E, adorable, great helper, polite, friendly, intelligent, great imagination she had to express herself through drawings or images which she can identify what she write on paper a great skill she had to be creative in her meaningful drawings!
Pray for more Wisdom and Happiness upon her and a Bright future Awaits her after thriving higher in her preschooler Early years, So humbled to see them all Happy as Awarded them Graduation certificate to send them off in Style with other friends being my 1st graduates in my setting to be celebrated.
Thank you too for all your support as working parents for having allowed me to work with you both in partnership to benefit your daughter's needs and interests.

I anxiously placed my Son with Trisha when he was 11 months old. I was so apprehensive as he was a very attached baby however I can only say that it was the best decision I have ever made! He is almost 2 now and absolutely loves his Aunty Trisha (thank god I’m not a jealous person) 😅. Trisha truly loves her job and always always puts the needs of the children first. She goes above and beyond and understands the pressures of being a full time working parent. When my son started with Trisha he was non verbal and now at almost 2 he is using 7 word sentences, counting, identifying letters of the alphabet and is meeting every single milestone early. Thank you Aunty Trisha 🥰
Response by Trisha on 26/07/2021:
Wow Yasmine✨🤗💞 Humbled for such a detailed review and how truly you feel about my Trisha's Childcare.
So Blessed for having taken on Baby Rowan in my care during such challenging times of Covid of the new normal of working, Mum Ro was so anxious I remember the first week of Ro separating from her, but with my magic touch and much Assurance, I ensured she got WhatsApp message every hour to see how Baby Ro was enjoying and that supported both Mum and Dad to feel more secure and relaxed about Ro settling in that same week in my care.
Time flies so quick now almost 2 years, and as Mum testified how much Ro has developed in all areas of learning, he's so active boy and I love working myself to the very best to ensure I am meeting all Children needs and interests! Hence, so so grateful for my baby Ro the youngest in all my minded children to be not yet 2 but speaking and understanding language with 6 to 7 words in his sentence as mum mentioned. So Proud of him, he had interests in dinosaurs, planets, mud play and reading lots of books and supported him with activities that's meet his interests and this has truly enabled him flourish and thrive well in most areas of learning.
Thank you Mum Ro and Dad for entrusting me with your precious Son Ro! We all Adore him mostly my girls who too been so part of his talking more as all been his playmates. Looking forward for his 2nd birthday and how much more adventures we hold for his future as support him to achieve the very best in his Early Years before join big school. ❤️💖🎉🎉🎉.
Much Love to your family💕💖✨
Aunty Trisha💖💝. (Preferred Name from the Children in Setting)
