Hello, my name is Angela Gaskin and after almost 16 years as a Registered Childminder, I have recently gone back to being a children’s Nanny. I am registered with the Voluntary Childcare Approval Scheme (Care Inspectorate Wales) which enables me to accept Tax-free Childcare or Childcare Vouchers as payment. I was previously registered with Care Inspectorate Wales (CIW) as a Childminder (since December 2002) and at my last Inspection in May 2017 I was thrilled to be awarded a ‘silent grading’ of Excellent; not easy for Childminders in Wales! I loved being a Childminder and have been privileged to care for such lovely children and families - a number of whom I looked after for over 10 years, but with my own children now adults I no longer need to be at home for them, so decided to go back to Nannying and Babysitting.
I have an Enhanced DBS and live in Rhoose with my husband and two ‘grown-up’ children; I am a non-smoker. I have a 7 seater people carrier which is insured for business use.
I have over 30 years of childcare experience including being a Childminder for almost 16 of those years, working many years as a children's Nanny both in Wales and Switzerland and have experience of working at an excellent playgroup, both as a parent helper and as paid staff. I have cared for newborns and a couple of sets of baby twins and have the experience of being a mum for over 21 years!
We like to attend Toddler Groups and the library as well as outings to the beach, farms, parks, play centre’s etc - this provides children with many fun and educational opportunities and gives them the opportunity to socialise and enhance confidence and self-esteem. Whilst I do plan our days, I believe 'In the Moment' activities to be far more beneficial to children as this encourages creativity and problem solving as well as a sense of achievement.

Angela is an absolutely exceptional childcare professional who any family would be lucky to have care for their children.
Having done a stint of childminding myself years ago, I was very picky about who I was prepared to leave my baby with. I met Angela as she used to look after 2 children from my daughter's primary school. We tended to park in the same place, and I remember noticing the lovely way that she interacted with the children in her care. They would run out of class and give her an enormous hug and then on the walk back to the car she would talk to them about their days with genuine interest and love, they would chat about the things they could see in the hedgerows, or the clouds. I remember thinking then what a lovely childminder she was then, so when I became pregnant with my son, I knew that I would want Angela to look after him when I went back to work.
I feel privileged that my son had the opportunity to be cared for by Angela for 2 years when she was working as a Registered Childminder. In this time she was rated Excellent by the CSSIW which came as no surprise because she is just absolutely brilliant in every way.
Angela is so calm, so loving and so kind. She is incredibly intelligent and patient and truly loves children (and they love her). It is no surprise that her own children (both in their 20's) are two of the most delightful people you could ever meet.
