About Me

My name is Angela and I live in Royston and have done for the last 31 years.

I have 4 children aged between 30 and 21. I have 4 grandchildren aged between 10 and newborn.

I have my own 7 seater car and a full and clean driving license.

I am Ofsted registered and also a member of Pacey.

I have been in childcare now for a number of years. After bringing up my own children I went to Hertford College and achieved my level 3 nvq in childcare. I started work at a preschool as a deputy supervisor whilst I completed my level 3 in 2007 and in 2009 I became supervisor and ran the preschool for just over 8 years. I have gained a lot of qualifications along my way both by attending face to face and online training. I then became a nanny before completing training with Ofsted to become a registered childminder. I have lots of experience with children from birth upwards. I also have experience looking after twins.

I enjoy being out and about and have a clear insight into the early years foundation stages and what is expected and when.

At my setting i welcome parents to view before deciding. I know how difficult a decision is to send your child to childcare. I have references from past and present children I have looked after. I have a separate room for children to sleep in away from other children playing. My setting is very much home from home.

I have an up to date paediatric first aid and safeguarding.

I am registered to take the 2 year old funding and the 15 and 30 hrs funding.

I am also registered with a range of different childcare voucher schemes.

Below are the latest reviews for angie 67. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.

Our twin boys started at Angie’s when they turned one and they have been under Angie’s great care for the last 2 years. Their big sister has been with Angie for a few years before that and our wish came true and we have been so lucky to have been able to return to Angie’s also with the boys. 

Angie is truly an amazing person and she takes such wonderful care of all our children. Without her, we are not sure how we would have coped over the last few years. She is very experienced with children and on top of that, she is super-organised and incredibly patient.  It is just so impressive how she manages so well with the tricky twin dynamics, as well as other children of different ages.   Her family is so very caring and wonderful too and I know my children love to seeing them.

The children are so lucky to be able to go to outings to the parks and places like Wimpole Hall and meet other children from other settings. It has been lovely especially with decreased social mixing due to Covid, as Angie has a lovely childminder friend the children get to meet a wider circle of friends when it's safe to do so. The boys seem to really enjoy story time together where we all bring in our favourite book each week, which has been fun and also great for listening, social and literacy skills.

We feel so lucky to be able to fully trust that the children are happy and safe with Angie and we do not worry about them when we are at work. Thankfully, they have also have learnt good road safety during park outings and school runs, where Angie often very patiently holds hands to walk with them to and from school. The boys are now very good walkers. It is a bonus that Angie is a wonderful cook and the children always have delicious fresh food.

We really appreciate all updates and pictures sent to us throughout the day and hearing what they have been up to at the end of the day. Angie also makes a wonderful learning journal with the children's pictures.  They are so beautifully done and we treasure them. 

The toys and resources are constantly being updated and they are encouraged to tidy up before moving on to another activity  - I’m sure that is helpful for their organisation skills and concentration, and they do generally help tidy up at home now too.

Angie is also extremely supportive towards us, the parents and we feel so lucky to receive all the advice when we need them.  As she is so experienced, any health concerns are noticed early and we were so glad to have taken the children to the GP following her advice.  Whenever we are unsure about the children's development/health, we say ‘let’s ask Angie’. We've also had many additional days we had to work unexpectedly and when there were enough spaces, Angie kindly looked after our children and we’ve been saved by her flexibility.

We just cannot thank Angie enough for everything she has done, so patiently and with amazing care. You have been such a big part of our lives and…. truly saved us all! We are so happy that our children had the best start in their learning journey we could have ever asked for!

When my two toddlers started with Angie, she straight away put me at ease and they settled in very quickly and I completely trusted her.
Angie does so much with the children and I always know they are going to have a lovely day with her.
She is very professional, kind and extremely reliable, I would recommend Angie to everyone 😊

Angie has looked after our first born daughter for 3 years, since she was 10 months old. We have had a wonderful experience and our daughter has always enjoyed spending time with Angie and the other children she looks after. Watching our daughter grow during Angie's care has been great and we have loved all the amazing handmade gifts our daughter has brought home during this time.

Angie provides a kind and nurturing environment, something we particularly wanted for our baby girl when we were first looking for a childminder. Angie regularly sets up different activities to support and enhance our daughters learning and development, she has lots of great toys and resources, which are refreshed often. She encourages varied play, arts and crafts, messy play, role play and also does lots outdoor activities including regular trips the the parks.

Angie pays close attention to what our child's interests are and will set up an activity the following week to suit, which is amazing to see and really comforting for our daughter. Angie has been very understanding and flexible when we have had issues at collection/drop-off times and is always happy to discuss and provide advice on things.

We would absolutely recommend Angie's safe and caring childminding services.

Angie has had been our childminder for over 4 years now? I’ve lost count!

Angie has looked after our two sons, now aged 6yrs and 4 yrs. We have come to the end of an era where we will no longer require a childminder because my youngest will be starting school in Sept ’21.Both my sons have flourished in the care of Angie. Learning is encouraged through play and an ever changing plan of daily activities. The orderly play room is organized with fun and stimulating toys which are kept updated and refreshed. Angie does lots of arts and crafts. Occasions such as Mother’sDay, Father’s Day, Easter are celebrated and the boys have always come home with a beautiful homemade gift.

The garden is a safe place for the children to play also. A massive tray the children congregate around can be filled with anything from water and sand to bright pink gloop.

The boys have also enjoyed the social aspect of being with a childminder – developing friendships with other children their age and especially for my youngest as he has grown a love for the toddlers. He has learnt how to be so caring and patient.

They have both been nurtured to learn at a pace which suits them as individuals. Potty training was welcomed, and her calm and experienced approach was so helpful.

Despite my sons childcare being predominately from Angie rather than preschool, this has not hindered their ability to be prepared in going to “big school”. In fact, I could confidently say that it has been an advantage with regards to their learning and development. Angie closely tracked their progress and has been meticulous in recording each achievement. She has been proactive in teaching them, and makes it part of everyday life e.g. looking out for letters whilst out and about on a walk.

Angie’s approach towards the boys has been wonderful. It feels as though she also sees them as part of her family. We have been pleased that Angie has shown the boys boundaries when required so that the boys have felt safe and contained. I love that neither of them look(ed) back, not even to say goodbye, when I drop them off. It says it all.

The support Angie has shown us as parents has not gone unnoticed either. Working irregular shift patterns has meant that at times we have needed Angie to have my son for longer on some days. She has been accommodating, flexible and understanding.

I cannot express how pleased we are to have had Angie as our childminder. She has been an extension to our family and we are incredibly grateful for all the love and commitment she given our sons.

Angie cared for my daughter and then my son. We are moving away and will miss her a lot! We don't have family locally so finding a dependable caring childcare provider was really important to me when I went back to work. Angie has been brilliant. So kind and loving to the children, making sure there are toys they like to help them settle, getting to know what makes them smile and providing different activities both at home and on trips. Angie has always gone above and beyond to be flexible and help out with extra hours wherever she can. This has been such a big help! Both children have food intolerances and I have been able to feel confident and happy that Angie knows what they can and can't eat. Angie is really good at providing development updates and always happy to chat through these or anything else related to their time in her setting. I am so grateful I came across Angies profile a few years ago and for all the care she has shown our family since!
