About Me

Hi, I'm Brinda, nice to meet you!

As a mother of two (7 year old and 2 year old), I personally know the challenge faced when it comes to ensuring your children are looked after in a safe, secure and nurturing environment.

Combine with my years of experience in childcare, Woodway Kids offers a personalised service as each child is unique.
My years of experience as a childminder has enabled me to build lasting relationships with parents and families of the children I cared for.

Caring for children of different ages (0 yrs - 11 yrs) has allowed me to expand my knowledge of the very diverse stages of development, this experience enabled me to enhance my ability to care for each child individually, whilst also being vigilant of the needs of the groups as a whole. I have strong ethos towards my profession; making me committed to providing a safe, nurturing environment for the children in my care.

coming from a diverse background I am able to communicate in four different languages: English, French, Creole and Hindi. This affinity for languages has allowed me to support children from families where English is not their first language, e.g Polish and Greek.

I take the safety of the children extremely seriously. I am a Paediatric first-aider and am trained in CPR. I also regularly take part in both on-line and group forums regarding child development and nurturing, as to keep in touch with any changes or new methods that could be useful.


I look forward to hearing from you!

My Experience

After 13 years of working and caring for the elderly and those with learning disabilities, moving to childcare seemed like a natural next step; with a friend we created the successful Little Willows Childcare in Enfield, London.

As a working parent of two young children (7 years old & 2 years old) I have first hand experience of the challenges working parents face on a day to day basis, this enables me to deliver a service truly tailored to hectic family life.

Starting work from 7.30am to 6.30pm, Little Willows Childcare quickly became my second home.
As time went on I discovered and developed my ability and capability of understanding and working with children.
Being caring, understanding and compassionate throughout my career has helped me to teach and support the children in my care to reach their full potential. I encourage purposeful play, meaning the children learn through play. It is truly amazing how children are able to learn and pick things up so quickly. I am constantly creating activities that motivate and fully engage the children.

Having moved to Erdington in Birmingham, I have decided to go solo with Woodway Kids.

At Woodway Kids, we follow The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and encourage learning through play.
I tailor my care and teaching according to the each child's unique needs, through real life learning such as baking, shopping, gardening, outings, cooking and cleaning to name a few.

Woodway Kids offers unique, affordable and flexible childcare in a registered home-base setting. We're family friendly and siblings can be cared for together, regardless of age, stage or ability. We provide One to One care focusing on each child's individual requirements, learning and personality, this is rarely matched in centre based care where children are not usually seen as the individuals that they are.

Brinda is such an amazing childminder and my daughter adored her. Nela joined the house where Brinda worked with her business partner when she was just about to turn 2 yo. She developed so much in her care and was always very excited to join Brinda in the mornings. I was confident about the quality of care that my daughter received during the day, so my partner and I could go on with our day without having to worry. Moreover, we were absolutely confident that she was safe and nurtured.

Brinda made sure kids were engaged with an array of activities that developed different sets of skills and ensured that they were tailored to the children's age. She would also provide feedback on my daughter's day on a daily basis. Throughout almost 2 years that Brinda looked after her, Nela developed new skills and I could see amazing progress in her social and emotional development. She is a confident and happy little girl and I know how important Brinda's role was in fostering that- she spent 9 hours, 5 days a week with my child. I could tell that Brinda gave her absolute 100% when looking after my child - she was engaged and one of things Nela dearly misses are the signing sessions with Brinda.

Nela and Brinda's daughter developed sister-like bond and it was such a pleasure and joy to watch them two interact, communicating beautifully, reminding each other of the rules and clearly having a great time together. We miss Brinda very much and I know that if we could keep her in our area, Nela would get the best care my partner and I could wish for!

Kassia you brought tears to my eyes. This is such a mirror of myself. It's such a pleasure to realise that you appreciate my hard work. You make me love my job more and more. It is such a rewarding job. Nela is an adorable and clever little girl. It was my privileged to be part of her childhood life. Misses you guys so much.

My intial contact with Brinda was when she was working alongside her business partner at Little Williows Childcare in Enfield. My twin Daughters started when they were 9 months old. I was nervous as a first time mum, but we was made to feel at home on our first day.

Brinda has been a fantastic childminder, as she went above and beyond for my children as I have a child with a disability. Brinda was willing to learn and I noticed she would always ask for updates in regarding to my my daughter with disability so she can continue to work alongside her to assist her in her development which was a bonus.

Over time Brinda developed a relationship with both girls and I can honestly say she cared for them as they were her own which made me feel at ease.

Brinda is an excellent Childminder, someone I would definalty recommend to anyone. You would not be disappointed at all!!!!!!

Thank you for your support Brinda!!!!

My daughter started with Brinda at 18 months old, which I was extremely anxious about as a previous childminder couldnt cope with her crying (!). Brinda got to know my daughter and her quirks and took care of her as her own. My daughter is very picky about who she cuddles but Brinda always got a lot of cuddles from her! She is kind, warm and nurturing. I was completely reassured when leaving her, even when I dropped her and she was upset, Brinda would message me and send a pic of her happy a short time later which was reassuring.
Brinda cares about the child's holistic well-being, not just the educational aspect. An all round excellent childminder who my daughter adores!
