About Me

Hi, I'm Anna. I live in Park North Swindon with my husband and three sons in a three bedroom house with a good-sized secure garden. I have a full range of toys and equipment to suit all ages for both indoor and outdoor use.

We will attend various children’s groups weekly, where the children benefit greatly and have lots of fun. We will also go to soft play areas, the park, farms and various other outings. I can prepare fresh homemade cooked meals to provide a healthy balanced tasty diet for the children.

As a parent you can take comfort in the knowledge that every aspect of your child’s day and learning experiences are carefully considered to ensure they have the best opportunity to flourish. I place great emphasis on encouraging children to use their imagination, develop their social skills and a sense of community, helping them to grow in confidence and independence in readiness for the next big step in their lives.

I follow a structured program of learning, development and care, which has been created to enable children to learn through a range of activities. I ensure:
- Children learn through play.
- I work closely with parents.
- Parents are kept up to date on children’s progress.
- The welfare, learning and all-round development of children with different backgrounds and levels of ability, including those with special educational needs and disabilities.

I have lots more information to provide you, about myself and my setting. Please contact me on my email if you are interested.

My Experience

I have experience within childcare, I first began my career in childcare when I became a parent of three sons and understood the value of children.

I have experience within work at school providing children support for primary pupils at all areas of the curriculum and taking responsibility for the progress of the class. Later I began to work within the nursery environment, which motivated me to move towards childminding as I would like to be able to provide children with more individual care and attention which can sometimes be missed within a busy nursery.

I love caring for the children and I take great pride in being a Childminder.

My little boy has been going to Anna’s for a while now and he absolutely loves it. He is always so excited to go and see her and all the other children, talking about them when he comes home and what he’s been doing constantly 💜
She is fantastic at all aspects of what she does, from learning to activities and cute little nature walks. my son has learned so much from her and I will forever be grateful.
Her setting is amazing, every childs dream. Arthur will miss the dinosaurs 🦕 and animals and of course all of you.
She also gives us lovely pictures of what our little ones have been up to, which is my highlight of the week.
I recommend Anna to everyone and trust her with everything, so lucky we found you!!

My son has been with Anna since he was 8 months old, he is now 4 & a half & ready to start his journey at Primary School thanks to Anna. I honestly couldn’t of asked for a better childminder, he’s learnt so much & I’m extremely proud. Anna’s setting is fun & exciting. They learn new things constantly, go on adventures & she’s ever so friendly. So easy to talk to about any worries or concerns & will always help out when possible. I can’t recommend Anna enough - by far the best. Superstar.

Anna is a wonderful childminder. I had approached a number of childminders trying to find one I felt comfortable leaving my 14 month old daughter with. As soon as I met Anna an saw her set up my heart was set. She is a loving, warm and fun person, who my daughter just loves, she has wonderful and in door set up, with lots of toys, books and posters! She always has plenty of fun activities to entertain and teach the children, I'm always excited to see what creations my little girl brings home. Anna provides feed back every day regarding eating, sleeping, playing and how her day has been as well as send pictures of all the awesome things she has been up to. Anna also feeds my daughter delicious healthy dinners and sends me a monthly menu to keep me in the know. Very happy and grateful to have Anna look after my little girl, she is just amazing!

When we were looking for childcare for our 13 months old daughter when I was to return to work we were nervous and looked at several options. The moment we stepped into Anna's house we knew that she was the one. Anna has a bubbly and caring nature; a lovely family and a house with positive and warm atmosphere. She created a wonderful
play area at her house and garden, stocked with lots of toys. Kids are always engaged in different activities (including plenty of outdoor) and doing something creative. My little one is really happy there and has such a fun time. But the most important thing for me is that she feels safe, well looked after and I always go to work with piece of mind. I'm happy that we chose Anna as our childminder and I would highly recommend her!

Anna is a loving, caring and approachable person. She looks after our 2.5 yo son like she would look after her own child.
The variety of activities she provides for children is just amazing.
She is helpful, flexible and always willing to help and change agreed arrangements if needed with the short notice.
Our son is happy to be with Anna and he is learning new things each day. We are provided with daily feedback an photos of what he have done each day.
Dedication and care that Anna provides is beyond highest standards.
I wish every parent looking for a childminder to be able to find someone like Anna xxx
