I'm Anita Boardman, OFSTED registered childminder in Droylsden 2 minutes from Manchester Rd Primary and Sun Shine pre school. I’m 50 years old with over 20+ years experience with children aged 0-16 some with special needs. I was graded 2 "good" which means Childminding practice is stong.
My husband Alan is a security advisor and is 58, I have one child Victoria who is 19, she’s always loved having other children around her and as made lots of great friends over the years.
As an OFSTED registered childminder I've looked after more than 50 children both long and short term over this period of time so far
I can offer your children a warm stimulating environment which is clean, safe and secure. I have a fully equipped play room with a wide selection of educational and recreational toys to suit all ages and a rear garden for out door activities with a trampoline, also securely fenced.
What I do
I always make sure the children are involved in daily group activities to stimulate their minds, such as painting and drawing, model making, role playing and they always seem to remember to make lots of special mementos to take home to their proud parents.
I attend various activity groups and where permitted take children on outings to different places like the local parks, indoor centres and soft play centres. Each child will have their own progress folder for parents to view and eventually take home.
Virtually all the children I’ve minded have been long term from a few months old to 14 years of age. I've many references from past and current parents whose children have attended my setting and are available to view on request. I and my family are all CRB Checked / Police Checked. I hold an up to date Public Liability insurance through the child minding insurance specialist Michael Morton Ltd.

Anita has been looking after my son for almost 2 months now and he has settled in very nicely. She's flexible, caring and sweet with my son. He has loved going in from Day 1 and still does.
He gets to do lots of activities with the kids, both indoors and outdoors and i get daily pictures of his activities. At the end of everyday, I can tell he's had a very nice time.
If I were a child, I'd want to go to her setting, too.

Aw thanku that's loverly I love looking after him he is a loverly little boy he is so good with loverly manners thanku so much.x
My son absolutely loves going to Anita she is such a kind and caring person who has very high standards as she is very experienced with children as she has done it for many many years. Anita looks after my 4 year old son in school holidays and for school drop offs and pick ups. Anita is very trustworthy, reliable and lots of fun, she has lots of activities planned for the children to keep them occupied, she takes them on lots of trips out durning school holidays and parks etc when she can. I feel that Anita goes above and beyond for all the children that are in her care and my mind is always at ease when I am at work because I know he is looked after amazingly and is very happy in her care.
