About Me

No longer offering the Government funded aspect of Early Years education.

Launching the Adventure Bus - a converted mini-bus, now a fully enclosed mobile classroom! Taking all that we need for a day's adventure - crafty stuff, books to back up what we see, toys and games to help us explore what we see, and food for the day's journey - and travelling in style.

I believe with passion that children should be able to learn by experiencing what goes on in the world and from watching how the world works, rather than being location based. Whether we're stalking the postman to see where our letters go, following the rubbish lorry, exploring the river from source to mouth, running through flying buttresses, visiting different churches and seeing what we can find, shooting water pistols around ruins, exploring nature and learning the names of our wild flowers, following the journey from grain to bread and so MUCH MORE, it's holistic learning in a fun-filled day! The learning experience can be adapted to suit children of all ages and inclinations.
Inspiration, exploration, enthusiasm.

Childminding option for school holidays and after school provision.

Individual attention, guidance and encouragement;

GREAT FUN HAD BY ALL!

Kind, caring, enthusiastic, creative, imaginative, organised!
I've worked with children for over 20 years, in a number of different roles and still maintain that each child is different.
Children respond well to my fun, fair, firm and consistent approach, feeling secure, appreciated, challenged and fulfilled.
I am outdoorsy and have a love of nature which I pass on to the children in my care and equally enjoy developing awareness of history and the arts, bringing our suroundings to life.

My Experience

I have worked with children of all ages (including twins) from birth to teens, including maternity nursing, sleep training, weening, providing preschool education and after school and holiday clubs.

Annie is a fantastic nanny. She is wonderful with children and has patience and enthusiasm in equal measure. Annie works with parents to ensure that she is taking children in the right direction - ie she will work to curb negative behaviours and encourage positive ones.

Annie's years of experience mean she's seen it all, and is a wealth of knowledge and advice. She can help with nutrition, sleeping, education and behaviour issues. Annie is fun but firm - not a formal, stuffy nanny. Her influence puts children on the right course for healthy and successful adulthood.

Annie's boundless energy means she will always take children out and about to learn about nature and the world around them. She makes an enormous effort to give her all to every family she works with.

I recommend her highly!
