Anoushka looked after our son for 8 years both during term time and out school hours. He loved it there and still goes on occasion now, to socialize with Anoushkas own child. The setting is clean, safe and tidy. Anoushka is very inclusive with all her children and fair. The activities were varied and our son who had special needs, learned an awful lot during his time there. Anoushka always ensured the children were kept busy and myself updated accordingly. Once hit by the pandemic, Anoushka was extremely cautious and adhered to all rules laid out by the government. After leaving her care, our son was given a journal with pictures and memories from his wonderful time with Anoushka. Without a doubt, a reliable, caring and fun loving lady with so much experience and our child's best interests at heart.
My son started with Anoushka in November 2019 when he was 11 months old and from the get go we have had nothing but an amazing experience with her. We had our settling in sessions and never looked back. She has been a real support, not just to my son but to me as a first time mum getting back into work.
She has been flexible when I have needed and always communicated everything with me clearly and in good time.
In regards to my sons development she has always encouraged him, supported his learning and also allowed him the freedom to do the things he enjoys doing. A couple of examples of this are, he is a big lover of music and so they will have disco time and on another occasion she knew of his love of Toy Story and so they used craft time to make Forky.
He really has come on in leaps and bounds since being with Anoushka and I feel she really goes above and beyond in her work to make her setting a safe, welcoming and loving place where little ones can thrive.
I will always recommend her to anyone and I just hope she has space for baby number 2 when the time comes!!
Anoushka was recommended to me by the local nursery, along with many other parents; she is the loveliest lady I have met. Anoushka has looked after my child for the past 18 months, usually 2 days per week. He truly loves attending her setting; he is incredibly fond of her and will leap into her arms with a smile.
During my sons settling in sessions, I was provided with many updates and photos of how my child was feeling and what activities he was doing (he was always happy)! I always feel at ease around Anoushka and as though I can ask any questions regarding my child’s development, she is consistently supportive and understanding.
The children often do a variety of different activities such as attending play groups, soft play, and arts and crafts. Anoushka has a wonderful garden which my son loves playing in, her house is spacious, safe and full of educational and fun toys!
Anoushka is very accommodating, flexible and relaxed, whilst still maintaining a well organised, clean, desirable setting. Anoushka is honestly one of the kindest, softest, loveliest ladies I have ever met, and I’m incredibly grateful my son is spending part of his early years with her; I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.
I moved my daughter to Anoushka after she had been tearful upon drop off every day at her previous childminder; she had just never settled in. I shared this with Anoushka who did everything she could to help my 2 year old feel happy, safe and settled. Her settling in sessions were well thought through and child focused so I knew my daughter would feel happy there. From day one my daughter never ever cried when I dropped her off and was always smiling when I collected her. Anoushka filled me in every day on what my daughter had been doing so we could chat about it and I felt as though Anoushka really got to know her, what she liked, disliked and enjoyed spending her time doing. It was a real home from home where my daughter could go and receive the love and attention every child needs when with someone who isn't their parent. Anoushka encouraged friendships between the children and my daughter's best friend is now a child she met at Anoushka's. Anoushka modelled positive traits such as sharing and turn taking and dealt with hurtful behaviour as a learning opportunity. My daughter even learnt how to use a knife and fork with Anoushka in a way she never wanted to learn from us! When my daughter left to go to school, Anoushka gave her a book of her time with her and we read it often. I can see how happy my daughter was and my daughter can remember the happy times. I would not hesitate to recommend Anoushka to a friend - and in fact I have done several times already!
Has looked after both my girls over a number of years. They love her to bits. She is honest, reliable and trustworthy with a great work ethic. She provides a variety of different activities to stimulate learning. Communication is fantastic including thorough learning journals which have been great to look back on. Would highly recommend her.
