About Me

I have been an Ofsted registered childminder since April 2011, previously having spent 7 years working as a teaching assistant.

I live with my husband, Neil, who works with me as my assistant, and 2 children aged 24 and 22 (all family members are DBS checked). The childcare setting is our family home which is a detached four bedroom house with a secure, spacious rear garden, only a couple of minutes walk from Oxley Park Academy.

We have a separate playroom and fantastic facilities that provide fun-filled days in a caring, nurturing, home-from-home environment.

We provide the children with healthy, nourishing, tasty meals and we will always try to maintain their home routine.

Each child will have the opportunity to experience and take part in fun-filled activities that stimulate their personal development as well as their social skills, tailored to suit their age and personal characteristics.

I provide fun filled trips to Stockgrove Park and Rushmere Park as well as visits to community centres and local parks, as well as providing indoor activities such as baking, arts and crafts, and sensory play.

My Experience

Having previously worked in school environments throughout my career, both as a teaching assistant in a primary school and key worker in a pre-school, a long with being a parent, I have plenty of experience working with different aged children, supporting them to personally develop and grow.

I have been a childminder for close to 7 years now, and fully understand the importance of finding the right care for your child so that you can get on with your working day, knowing your child is safe and having tonnes of fun.

Angie and Neil (not forgetting the gorgeous dogs) have not only been beyond wonderful but also life savers. We returned from Switzerland and needed childcare asap to aid working in a hospital during the covid pandemic. They couldn't have been anymore accomdatating and flexible to arrange a place for my 18month old son. Even though I was a high risk worker, they knew how important it was for me to work and fully accepted that and the risks it came with it. When so many other childminders closed during covid, they kept their doors open, being flexible, thus allowing myself to work.

As soon as my boy started, they put me at total ease, that he would be fine, and he was. They are the warmest people and from day 1 my little boy loved going there often asking to go back when I picked him up. I never have worried about him for one minute whlist he has been in their care.

Angie and Neil have brought him on leaps and bounds, improving his communication, social skills, and the best thing is that they have embrassed his energy and wildness and let it flourish.

On many occasions Angie and Neil have bent over backwards to help us, being flexible whenever they possibly can.

Louis would come home so happy after days baking, playing in the garden, playing in the water on hot days, painting, singing, reading and
eating delicious home cooked meals (and the odd biscuit from Neil 😉). It always felt they were going above and beyond to make children happy and thrive and make it fun.

We leave Angie and Neil with a heavy heart, but the Yorkshire hills are calling us now! All we hope is that we manage to stay in contact. We feel the luckiest people to have met you both and have you care for out little wild boy for the last 18 months.

Our daughter was with Angela and Neil since she was 6 months old. We recently moved abroad and the thought of my child no longer going to Angela’s setting gave me sleepless nights. I’ve always imagined my girl would keep them in a way, more like family than anything else. They raised her beautifully, in a caring, safe and fun environment. She developed quickly, she’s smart, polite and with great sense of humour. She grew up around their lovely dogs and has no fear of them. I am now in that brand new country and regret I couldn’t bring Angela and Neil with us; they are amazing and we are all missing them very much. The best childcare we could ever ask for. Love you guys, thank you!

My boy absolutely loved going to Angela's and it was very clear that Angela and her whole family developed a strong bond with him. I could clearly see him develop and come out of his shell over the time he was with them (1 year 3 months). Angela has built a safe environment where all the kids she looks after appear to get along very well. Angela was very generous with her time and considerate of my circumstances, always going above and beyond. We have left MK otherwise we would have continued to use her services. I would highly recommend Angela to anyone who is looking for someone they can truly trust to look after their children.

My son went to Angela from approx 6 months old until he was 4 years old. Angela and their whole family made him feel part of the family. The wisdom and guidance that Angela gave to not only my son but myself as a first time mother was absolutely priceless. Angela has most definitely played a pivotal role in my son settling into primary school with the skills he has learnt with Angela over the years.

Angela and her family looked after my daughter from when she was 10months old and I returned to work. She made the experience of going back to work so much easier knowing my daughter was well cared for and I didn’t have to worry.

My daughter stayed with Angela until she was ready for preschool in a new area and she has had the best start. Angela has provided a loving and nurturing environment for her to learn and develop and she has made sure my daughter is ready for her new adventure at preschool with lots of skills.

Angela is flexible and positive and always updated me with all of my daughters progress. She provided lots of stimulating activities, plenty of time outside and most important, lots of fun! My daughter will have very fond memories of her time there and I couldn’t recommend Angela enough.
