About Me

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.

My Experience

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

My Environment
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.

My Qualifications

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.

Below are the latest reviews for Anita Boardman. 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.

Anita had my two Grandchildren all through the six weeks holidays. They had a great time with her she took them out to the parks and walks 3 times a day. She had so many different activities catering for both boys and girls. The children absolutely love Anita now they think of her more of a family member than their childminder. Anita keeps you updated on daily activities and sends pictures of the children she goes out of her way to accommodate you even picking my Granddaughter up when my Grandson was not feeling too good. We had such a good experience with Anita we decided to stay with her when I returned to work full time they are now in Breakfast and Evening club Anita takes them and collects them from school. I highly recommended anyone looking for a childminder to look up Anita she’s fantastic and all her kids love her and a big thank you to Alan her husband he is a lovely helpful man.

Thanku ann for a loverly review I have loved looking after them an goin on our adventures everyday they are active children so have to have things to stimulate their minds an age appropriate activities an I think of them as my family as I have them throughout the day in school hols.thanku for trusting me with them. Anita.x

Anita is such an experienced childminder. She is more like a teacher as well as a friend for my 2 years old son. When my son visited Anita he nearly turned to be 2, Anita brought my son a peppa pig piano, she is so considerate! My son's mother language is Chinese, till now more than 2 months past, he can speak more and more English, and he can count numbers from1 to 10, the most important is my son become to be more open for the other people, he started to say hello and smile to the unfamiliar people positively, thats a big change. Anita always encourage him with her professional way, also with lots of love and passion. She gives children a perfect plan everyday, they will hang out to the park catching some rays and fresh air, they also do handwork and learning after they back from outside. Every time my son would bring me a creative handwork, we have got a collection! haha we all love Anita!

Thanku larissa for my loverly review its obvious that me an nathan have a bond as I do with all the children from early on I love looking after him he is a pleasure to look after an I hope I will be looking after him for a long while yet. Anita

At the end of our first week with Anita and we absolutely love her. We dont have family near and my baby has never been away from us at all so I was so worried about him leaving us especially due to lockdown as he started to get scared of outside people but has taken to Anita like a family member! He's still scared of outside people but you can tell he feels safe around Anita and, also importantly, he's happy and smiles every time he sees her. We've had minimal tears in the transition. I'm so happy we've found someone who truly cares as much as we do, if I could give more stars I would!
