About Me

Ofsted Good Provider Logo

I have been a Registered Childminder (Ofsted Approved) for 24 years . My last Ofsted inspection was a strong good.
I love working with children of all ages. I live near the town centre of Ossett.
I offer a warm, caring and fun environment with lots of time for interaction, play, activities and being out and about at the park, local field, and library . We also enjoy many activities such as painting, mark making, crafts, sand / water, baking, books, dressing up, imaginary play, jigsaws, games and age appropriate toys of all kinds.
My approach is child-led and with lots of opportunity to use imagination and follow ideas and explore. There is a structure to the day too and we have a story and singing time in a specially created space , “the library” .
I have had AstroTurf with shock absorber underlay put down in the garden making it a safe and fun place to play. We have a playhouse, slide and sand/water table outside which are enjoyed on a regular basis.

My Childminding is on a small scale and I can offer lots of opportunities for individual preferences and interests.

I drop off and pick up at Dimplewell infant and nursery school and Southdale junior school.

Please send me a message / ring or text if interested. Thanks.
Covid - 19 : I am taking precautions with extra cleaning and hand washing. We go on nature walks , we go down the local greenway and see the farm animals . We also spend a lot of time with outdoor play in the garden which is like an outdoor playroom! Also the fields at the greenway and we do activities like our own sports day , play ball etc.

My little boy started with Anneli when he was 8 months old. He loved going everyday and always had a huge smile when dropping him off along with the other kids. The service Anneli provided was excellent and I would definitely recommend her as a childminder for your little ones.
