About Me

I am a qualified OFSTED registered Childcare Provider with nearly 10 years of childcare experience. I am on two Registers under Ofsted as a Childcare Provider and Early Years Provider. I am a member of PACEY and fully insured. I hold Level 3 Diploma in Children & Young People’s Workforce (CYPOP5) with Paediatric First Aid and Safeguarding Children Level 2 qualification and many more (Please see under My Qualifications section below).

My Childcare setting is called Little Explorers. We are based in Harrow - couple of minutes drive or about 15 mins walk from Harrow town centre.
At my home, I want your precious little child (‘my children’ as I call them) to feel it is their ‘Home away from Home’ and grow up as a part a family. While their Exploration continues, I am passionate and enthusiastic about providing an outstanding level of care and education for them. I help them develop in number of key learning areas. They will learn not only to love, respect, share and communicate, explore and express, but also to build self confidence, be focused, disciplined, pay attention, listen, concentrate, love the nature, enjoy music & arts, and at the same time play and have fun.

My home is a semi-detached house with no pets and smokers, and with a stimulating environment. There is a ‘play while you learn’ nursery room with many activities and also a good size garden. I organise free workshops for my children such as Phonics, Mathematics, Writing, Reading, Music, Dancing, Creative Arts, Games/activities which help their sensory and motor development.

With the parents’ permission, I get the children involved in gardening, going to children's parks, walking to local shops, visiting the library and Harrow Museum, etc. such that they will understand and mix with the outside world.

A well-balanced healthy diet is extremely important to the child’s physical and mental growth. I cook and provide freshly made vegie and non-vegie food, fruits, home-made juices, milk, yogurt and snacks every day.

I am a mother of two beautiful children (a daughter and a son). Before becoming a childminder, I used to work at St Mark’s Hospital at Northwick Park NHS in Harrow. I was graduated at Queen Mary University of London with a BSc(Hons) degree. My husband, who is also very supportive towards my Childcare setting, is an Engineering Project Manager graduated at Kingston University and has been checked with Enhanced DBS and approved by OFSTED.

In order to fulfil my passion in working with children and having my own daycare centre, I became a qualified OFSTED registered Childminder.

Above all, your child will receive personal one to one care, love and attention he/she needs.

My Experience

I am registered with Harrow Council as a Childcare provider which has allowed me to deliver Early Years Education. I am fully qualified and passionate to be with children with nearly 10 years of childcare experience. I am a mother of two gorgeous children.

Caring is something that I have experienced in offering from a very young age since being the only child born to deaf and mute parents.

I also provide tutoring for children from Reception to year 3 in Phonics, Writing, Reading and Mathematics.

My boys attended Little explorers which is a home based setting; they immediatly felt comfortable with Thushani and they where in a relaxed enviroment. They had plenty of activites to do, Thushani kept me updated and was very proffesional in her approach. I highly reccomend Little explores.
