Hello my name is Anna and I have a cosy childminding setting which is a 2 minute walk from Finchley road tube station. I would describe my setting as a mini nursery full of love and fun.
I am a very enthusiastic person and adore babies and children. I am reliable, friendly, caring and passionate about the work I do. I follow the EYFS with children and cover the five areas of learning and development. I normally create a strong bond with the children I look after and I am still in touch with a few of them. I am punctual and respect parents wishes regarding what structure they would like me to follow for their babies and toddlers.
I work with a wonderful lady called Hanna who has several years of experience working with children. We work very well as a team as we have known each other for many years.
Children are taken out on a daily basis to different parks, libraries and playgrounds. We believe through play, encouragement and using a range of activities children will learn to develop the skills that is important throughout their lives.
All meals are prepared fresh on a daily basis.
I have 2 children of my own, a 21 year old daughter and a 9 year old son. I have enjoyed every minute of being being a mum which inspired me to have my own provision. Also I worked for 4 wonderful families before opening up my setting which upon request will give you their contact numbers as my references.

Our son has been with Anna and the team for more than a year now, and it's been amazing to see how well they're looking after him.
As parents we could not be happier with the way they are supporting his development through a diversity of activities (singing, storytelling, dancing, painting, drawing just to name a few).
Anna has also managed to build a real family spirit with all the kids and our little one always heads there with excitement and a big smile.
We feel very lucky to have Anna looking after him and cannot recommend her enough.
Anna and her wonderful team started looking after our son in February 2019 when he was 12 months old. Anna is such a genuinely warm and caring person and the setting is very social and child-orientated so we instantly felt at ease and our son settled well and has since thrived with Anna.
We are constantly taken back with how much our son is learning at Anna’s - he knows a wide range of songs and actions, the alphabet and numbers and is able to communicate well.
He loves mixing with the other children at Anna’s and is excited to go there each morning.
All meals are home cooked and delicious - he eats so well there and has been able to try out lots of new food. Anna’s place is kept very clean and tidy. Anna is always punctual and reliable.
We feel very grateful to Anna for looking after our son with such care and love. We can not recommend her highly enough.
Response by Anna on 02/12/2019:
Thank you so much Lucie! Thomas is a lovely boy and we love having him!
My 15 months old boy was in Anna's care in the last 8 months (we left the UK and that's the reason we left Anna's childminder).
My son was very happy with Anna! It isn't easy for him to feel comfortable with strangers and Anna made an amazing effort to make him feel safe and to trust her. She is wonderful, makes healthy food for the children and takes care that every child will get what he needs. The other carers are wonderful as well, lovely and love the children with all their hearts (Lina, Hanna and Nahid)!
If I had to choose again a place for my little one, I would definitely choose Anna again!!
Thank you, Anna, for everything you have done for us.
Anna has been looking after our daughter for 3 days a week since August 2018.
It was immediately apparent upon first meeting Anna that she's a natural and deeply cares for all the babies and children she looks after. Her enthusiasm and energy shine through and her genuine affection made my return to work a thousand times easier. I feel safe in the knowledge that my baby is not only safe but being loved, nurtured and played with.
Anna really is a natural- our (previously) very attached daughter went straight to her on just their first meeting! The difference in our daughter in just 1-2 months is also astounding- she's learned to share, is happier to spend time without her parents and she's learned some fabulous gestures and words. She gets ever so excited when we arrive at Anna's which I think says it all.
I think it's also worth noting that my daughter had been about to start at a very prestigious nursery nearby. I pulled her out after just one settling in session because the nursery lacked genuine care and affection for the babies. Anna is the absolute opposite- she positively oozes love and warmth for all the children she works with. I can't recommend her highly enough - we feel very lucky to have found her.
My daughter Ines was in Anna’s care for a year since she was 6 months old and Anna has been fantastic. Ines has received so much love while being there that I could not have wished for a better carer for her. Anna provides a warm, safe and nurturing environment for the children which includes a variety of activities and trips out to the park. She is also providing them with excellent fresh food cooked from scratch on daily basis and has been willing to adapt to each child and their specific eating and sleeping patterns .
Anna loves those kids and it shows, my daughter has been growing in a loving environment and has made lots of little friends while being there. Anna is brilliant and we felt very confident in the high quality of care she provided.
We will miss you Anna, especially Ines! Thank you again.
