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.

I have found Anna to be an extremely capable individual. She has a wide breadth of experience in looking after children and always made us feel confident in her ability to look after and care for our sons. This was important to me because I have two under two and Anna was our first experience of child care. Anna is excellent at planning activities for the children, with daily activities such as playgroups and crafts. She also takes the children on a wide range of activities and visits throughout the day.I cannot thank you enough for all your support.I could not have wished for a more professional, caring and dedicated childminder. I will miss you and your family as much as the boys will.

I know Anna since March 2019. I feel really lucky to have Anna as my son's childminder. She is very friendly, loving and the most caring person I have met. My son who is only 3 years old feel really safe in her care. She does lots of activities and also updates me about my son's progress. She helped me potty train my son as well. I would highly recommend her.

Anna is absolutely amazing & I would 10/10 recommend to anyone & everyone.

My son has been with Anna in her setting for a year now. He was 8 months when I first went back to work & I was so worried because he was so little but Anna made all my doubts & worries go away within weeks of him being with her. Anna records absolutely everything to do with your child, with photos, a diary & verbally.

My son is now 19 months & he say a lot of words, some sentences, he can count to three & he knows how to sing ‘twinkle twinkle little star’ thanks to Anna. All the photos I see of my child week by week whilst I’ve been at work makes my heart burst with joy. He is extremely happy with Anna and the day to day activities he does.

Anna is an absolute star.

My son has been going to Anna for 2 years. He started out a very shy and timid boy but has come on leaps and bounds with Anna working with him, he is now a very confident social child with impeccable manors and knowledge of numeracy, letters and the safety of the outside world. We will be very sorry to have to leave Anna in September when he starts school full time, he has grown very close to Anna and is always excited and happy when he knows he is going to her for the day. Thank you so much Anna for all your hard work with him, you are truly amazing with the patience of a saint! We would recommend any parent to choose you for your professionalism and your care and all your hard work with the children. Thanks to you our son is starting school with a wider knowledge and above target standards for all his age requirements.
