About Me

Hello I am Anna, an Ofsted registered childminder, with bags of experience taking care of little ones.

(if during the day, I may be accompanied by my 16 month old!)

My career as a full-time nanny has spanned over 15 years and I absolutely love my work. I am confident that the children in my care are benefiting from an experienced, creative, loving and fun environment and I am committed to encouraging each child to make healthy and positive choices, be kind, polite and above all embrace life and have lots of fun!

My dream has always been to start my own little business and take care of children in my own home and in 2014 I opened the doors to Banana Bunch Childcare!

Employing a ‘carer’ for your child needn’t mean sacrificing the benefits of a loving and intimate family environment. By basing Banana Bunch in my own home in Queens Park/Hanover and limiting the number of children I care for to three, I’m able to provide the individual care and attention your little one needs to reach their full potential, within a safe and homely environment.

My home has a very positive and happy vibe, music always playing, a wide variety of fun, educational toys & activities and lots of giggles!

My Experience

15+ years as a full-time nanny, caring for children from newborn to 15 years old. I have also cared for mentally & physically challenged children. I am an experienced live-out nanny and also have live-in and proxy parenting experience (from overnight - 10 day periods).
I have been running my childminding business for 3 years.

Below are the latest reviews for Anna Lew. 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.

Anna has been our nanny for our 6 year old girl and 3 year old boy for the past six months and she is wonderful!

She is creative, imaginative and so motivated. She does such great things with my children and they are very fond of her. She clearly enjoys the company of children and treats them with respect and kindness. She is genuinely interested in their thoughts and opinions.

My son has speech and language problems and she works with him with his speech therapy practise and he has made fantastic progress. His lack of language means he is often frustrated and can misbehave but Anna is patient and understanding yet firm with him.

I work full time and often long hours and I have total piece of mind that my children are safe and happy. Anna is reliable and trustworthy. She has a wealth of experience and I often ask her for advice when it comes to dealing with tricky behaviour. We will miss her but hope that she will remain our friend.

I'm a mother of three children, aged 4, 2 and 2 weeks. Experiencing Anna's incredible way with children and parents alike is a genuine privilege; my partner and I feel utterly blessed to have her play such an important role in our children's lives. She was the first person we called to look after the older two when I went into labour two weeks ago as we trust her implicitly and knew she would handle the situation with sensitivity and care.

We share Anna with another family two days a week; she cares for the younger ones during the day, then collects the older two from school and cares for them all until bedtime. Obviously, I look after the baby at the moment, but Anna is fantastic with him and gets stuck in helping out when she senses I need a break, which is a complete Godsend.

Tailoring the afternoons to suit all of the children is something Anna does with ease. Her manner is upbeat and engaging, the activities she provides are creative and original, and she always provides a loving yet disciplined environment where the children are constantly surrounded by a sense of fun.

When Anna cares for my children, not only does she bring education and diversity to their day, she also always finds time to provide invaluable advice and support when I'm struggling as a parent. Having confidence in my children’s care and wellbeing is absolutely paramount, and when I leave my children in Anna’s charge I know that I can rest completely assured that they are safe, happy and intellectually engaged.

I am very pleased to be able to vouch for Anna as an incredible and outstanding nanny or childminder, and am happy to be contacted to verify this testimony or provide further information.
