My Summary

Ofsted Registered

About Me

My name is Annette. I am a happily married mother to three older girls (33, 22 and 21), two of which now work in childcare as well. I live in the Cowley area.

I have been an OFSTED registered childminder for 24 years. I started to childmind so I could be a stay at home mum with my oldest child, whilst also creating a loving and welcoming environment for other children.

I’ve gone on to become friends with a lot of the families of the children I’ve childminded for. I am also Godmother to several of the children who I’ve childminded. I still see a lot of the children I’ve looked after to this day. I still keep in contact with the families who have moved away, one moved to Ireland and one moved to Sweden.

I have had quite a few siblings from the same families due to having a good relationship with the parents. I have experience with working with Social Services for emergency childcare. I have worked with children who are on the autistic spectrum, young children with eating issues (refusing to eat at all) and bilingual children.

I am also trained in:
- Paediatric first aid
- British Values
- Prevent Duty
- Safeguarding
- Food Hygiene
- Cultural

I run a toddler group three mornings a week. I do not have a garden, as I live upstairs, but in the summer months, we occasionally play downstairs on the grassed area with some toys that I keep in the shed. I also have access to my husband’s allotment where we plant vegetables.

My Experience

I have been around and helping children for 47 years, as I’m the oldest girl in a family of 6. I essentially brought up my little sister as my mum and dad had to work.

Annette has been looking after my daughter for nearly two years now and my daughter loves going to Annette's. When my daughter first started she would not eat a single thing all day but Annette was very patient and encouraging with my daughter and now she will eat anything, she even helps herself to Annette's lunch 😁
My daughter has learned a lot from Annette, from nursery rhymes to counting Annette always makes learning fun for the kids.
I would highly recommend Annette she is caring, thoughtful, reliable, is always willing to try an accomodate late changes to childcare days if possible an all round great childminder.
