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 is very passionate about the kids with her. I have no doubts or worries about my daughters wellbeing when she is with Anita. Our experience with Anita was love at first sight. I strongly recommend Anita as she is very passionate, attentive and efficient. Thanks Anita for all you are doing for Made.

Thankyou so much for my lovely review I'm so happy that you trust me with made she is a she a little pleasure and settling in nicely.anita.x
Anita has been a flexible and lovely childminder for our son for a few weeks now and provides a wonderfully caring service. She sends frequent updates to us and has worked hard to assuage any anxieties new parents have!
Regrettably due to personal circumstances our son will be leaving her but we highly recommend her to anyone looking for a highly experienced childmonder providing a personal,loving environment for their child.

Thankyou Joe an Amanda for the lovely review. .I became fond of David very early on in our child minding relationship an I am sorry to be losing him after such a little time together ..thankyou for putting your trust in me an if your circumstances change and you need a childminder again ii would not hesitate to take David back on again if I have availabillity anita.
So our daughter Ella had been with Anita for well over a year and in that time me and Ella’s mum have been more than happy with the overall experience we’ve had with Anita minding our daughter. Anita had Ella from when she was a baby and helped her developed into a well rounded little girl.
Children will be treated to a family home environment where they can improve socially and educationally with the experience Anita offers.
Ella found plenty of friends from her time here and still repeats there names daily!
All in all, if we ever needed another childminder, Anita would be the first person I would ring.

Thank you for the lovely review an if Ella's nana hadn't of retired I'm sure I would still be looking after her I still miss u all an wish you good luck for the future thank you for putting your trust in me to look after her I have loved every min of looking after her the bond we had together was just out of this world.anita.xx
I was in Manchester for a short period and due to work commitments needed a childminder for my 1 year plus son Max. I reached out to Anita due to the reviews I had read about her. I was not disappointed. From our introductory meeting until we left, Anita was very warm and easy to get along with which made it more reassuring to leave my son in her care. She was transparent about the care she provides and kept me updated about Max every day. She always made sure all the kids interacted well together and made friends of one another. This was my first experience using a childminder service and I would consider having Anita care for my son again should the need arise. Thank you Anita. from Max, Mum and Dad.
