Tashande Powell (Gentle Hands)

I an Ofsted registered childminder based in Tooting Bec. 

As a working mother of 3 wonderful children, childcare has been a major aspect of mine and my children’s lives for the past 14 years. As you may be aware, childcare is quite expensive and doesn’t always fit the needs of some families working pattern. Being a key worker in the NHS, my working hours didn’t always fit the typical Monday-Friday 9am-5pm; therefore finding suitable childcare came with its challenges. My experiences of leaving my children in the care of others has not always been satisfying which is why I aspire to make a change. This desire for change has birthed our newly opened Gentle Hands Childminding Services. 
I understand the need for good balance, and I believe parents should be happy with the care their children receive from childcare providers, knowing high quality is at the heart of the service delivered.

Please see link to Facebook page for more details of my setting and some of the resources available!

The setting opens Monday - Friday from 7am - 7pm. I also provide overnight childcare for those who would benefit from this service, T&C’s apply. 

In an attempt to make childcare affordable and flexible for the parents within the community, I am also offering key workers a 20% discount, T&Cs apply. 

Viewings welcome to prospective parents and any questions you may have. A family-centred approach is at the heart of this service and the aim is to work alongside parents to provide the best possible outcome.
