About Me

I have been a childminder for over 25 years, and my current OFSTED rating is "GOOD" from an inspection in november 2017 ... I have maintained this grade for my entire career as a childminder.
I currently have children at Panshanger Primary School and can collect from many nurseries and schools.
I have full and part time spaces at the moment.
I started childminding so i could spend time with my son who is now 28 years old, i love working as a childminder and the relationship i develop with children and parents is special to me.
I live with my partner of nearly 40 years, Steve and our youngest daughter Katherine who is 13. We also have 3 grown up children Chris 29, Jen 27 & Stephanie 22. I have also recently become a Nanny to our grandson Joseph - 6 months xxx

We have a large garden with an aviary full of noisy and colorful birds and lots of outside toys including sandpit, ride on toys and even sometimes our very own bouncy castle :) We open our back gate and we are in the local park with swings, slides and climbing frames. In the summer we go swimming at the local pool and have picnics in the park! We are always accompanied by Oscar, our small dog, who loves children and the children love him xx

Inside i have a fully stocked art and craft area, reading area and 'free play' area with lots of toys to help with learning and social skills including dressing up, pretend play and small world toys.
I plan our activities and meals based around the childrens current favorites but i do encourage a healthy diet and politeness at meal times.

i am registered with welwyn garden city council as a small food business
i am also a qualified chef so all meals are homemade .In my home children are encouraged to sit and eat there meals together --- its a great opportunity for them to interact with each other and learn good table manners.

Please call me if i can help or to arrange a meeting. xxx

Our baby boy has been going to Ann’s for almost a year now. She made sure he felt safe and comfortable, he enjoys all the interactions with the many pets she has and understands how to look after them.
For his young age, he has developed quite an artistic skill since being with her. The mix of ages she has is something that our boy has benefit from as he looks after the older children to try and do everything they do (eat by himself, being polite, sharing, and dancing!...to mention some).
I can highly recommend Ann, she keeps you updated on your children’s development and milestones, on how the day went and you can see how happy each child is when being dropped off at hers.
She has been a great support to us, we have had a very difficult few months and she made sure our boy felt at home, she has always been very accommodating and supportive.

Our daughter has been going to Ann 3 full days a week since she was 1, and is now nearly 2 and a half. She’s developed really well during this time in her speech and social interactions, and particularly enjoys all the arts and crafts activities they do every week. Ann has also been a great support with potty training since she turned 2, supporting our same routine and approach from home to help her stay on track.

Ann has been looking after my 2 year old son for over a year now. We have been very happy with the home from home care she has provided. I found it so hard leaving him but have always felt he is so well looked after and cared for. It has been so good for him to spend time with other children who are a mix of ages, and to take part in the fun activities Ann does with them. She has been very reliable and also flexible as my working days have changed recently. I like that Ann has so many years of experience and can completely trust her with caring for my son.

Thankyou xxxxx

Ann is a fantastic childminder who has gone above and beyond with my son. We have been with Ann approx 6 months and i was very nervous about leaving my baby with anyone for the first time!
Ann was amazing and understood how i felt, we arranged 'settle visits' and Ann updated me regularly on how my son was doing, sending texts & photos 😊
I would 100% recommend Ann as a childminder and look forward to my sons years to come in her care 😊
