About Me



I will have 2 full-time spaces available from September 2019

I live in the PO13 0LQ area with my 9 year old son and I was Graded Outstanding from Ofsted in December 2017

I am also level 3 qualified and fully insured and DBS checked.

I have 2 separate playrooms , and 2 designated outdoor play areas for the children to play as well as an outdoor playroom with lots of resources for all ages and abilities to enjoy.

I am very flexible with opening / closing times to cover shift workers.

I offer a caring and warm home from home environment which will enable your child to feel safe and secure while you are at work with lots of fun thrown in ,including outings to the beach,farm,soft play ,Jiggy wrigglers and messy play to name but a few.

I will strive to work hard to accommodate all your child's needs ,working with you to meet the needs of your child and most of all let them have fun whilst learning in a loving and warm safe home enviroment .

Children are always made to feel part of our family and are treated in the same way as I treat my son to help them also feel part of my family same rules for everyone.

I believe children should be able to have fun to play and learn in a happy home enviroment but at the same time have consistency and boundaries in place.

Local authority 15 / 30 hours funding available for 2,3& 4 year olds.

Please feel free to contact me to arrange a visit and an informal chat to discuss your childcare requirements.

We used Andrina for a few months, mainly to cover inset days and school holidays without any 'fixed' care hours, her flexibility and can-do approach are a credit to her.

Since we moved house, Andrinas setting is too distant for the practical daily commute of our son to her and he was quite upset that he would not be going back.

Her setting is well equipped and extremely child-oriented, even down to age-restricted games for her games console!

I can't offer enough praise for her help and her flexibility.

Absolutely recommended!

Absolutely delighted with the care and attention given to our baby boy of 5 months. As a new mum, I was very anxious about leaving my child for the first time with anyone other than family. Andrina was very welcoming and caring. Our baby boy was well tended to and happy when we arrived! Andrina is reliable and we would certainly her care recommend to others.
Thank you :)

My 11mth old son has been attending Andrina's for nearly 3mths now. He settled instantly and is very happy. He always has a big smile when we arrive and reluctant to leave when I pick him up lol :))).

Andrina has been accomodating and flexible with regard to my early starts and late finishes, which is quite difficult to find in a childcare provider.

I have found Andrina to be a friendly, approachable person who is very passionate about her job. My son benefits immensely from Andrina's welcoming, purposeful, stimulating and encouraging home from home environment.

My son feels welcomed, is confident as a result of feeling safe and secure and is respected. He is deveolping and learning, interacting with the other children on differents levels.

I feel confident that his health and safety, physical, mental and emotional well-being needs are being met.

My son is very happy which makes me a very happy mummy! :).

Highly reccomended.

My little boy has been with Andrina for nearly 2months now my son absolutely loves it there he gets on well with her little boy Andrina has been more then accommodating to the needs of my child care as it changes weekly she is very reliable, i like most parents had reservations about a childminder but she is very professional and friendly and instantly makes you feel welcome, my son is 19 months old into everything as most toddlers are what I find most comforting in andrinas care I never worry about him I know he is in good hands. In the 2 months he's been there I have seen a vast improvement in his development his talking has come along so well and being a picky eater he's trying new foods and surprising me every day I couldn't be more happy I couldn't imagine him anywhere else highly recommend x

My 1st child Avantika who is now 10 month old has been going to Andrinas 4 days a week (Mon -Thur) 8am to 6.30pm for more than a month now. Like the above reviewer I am a first time mum too and was very apprehensive and worried about sending Avantika to childminders. However, with in the first few days Avantika settled down very well and seems to like her time spent with Andrina and her little boy.

I found Andrina very proactive, friendly and engaging. My little girl has cow milk allergy and Andrina has taken really good personalized care of her and keeps me updated all the time.

Andrina is very reliable and flexible. She engages the kids very well by involving them in lots of different activities which are stimulating. Avantika really enjoys her play time at Andrina's and some times refuses to come home with us which is a good sign.

We are extremely happy with Andrina and at peace as we feel our little one is in safe hands.
