Ann started looking after my daughter in 2014 as soon as we met Ann we clicked and knew she was the person to take care of our daughter while we was working. And a couple of years after my daughter started my son started with Ann. The kids loved going and even told me my snacks werent like anns snacks! They settled in so well and i felt at ease knowing my children were being cared for by someone who had the same murals as we do. They did so many activities when they were there from halloween parties to egg hunts around the garden with the real easter bunny! I used to be at work and my phone would ping with pictures of the kids having fun and smiling their heads off i loved seeing how much fun they were having. Ann looks after the children asif they were her own and creates a home from home environment! I can not recommend Ann enough and when my children left i was so upset and i have kept in touch with Ann sending her regular updates of the kids. My children would still be there if it wasn't a change in my work circumstances where i could pick my children up myself we miss Ann.

Excellent child minder , my six year old has never been to a childminder due to grandparents helping out. She has made him feel at home and he loves going there . I would highly recommend Ann for anyone who needs childcare assistance in Middleton/Chadderton area. She is also very flexible too :-)

Ann has looked after my little boy since he was 6 months old and he is still with her now. I've been really impressed. Ann has a lovely homely environment, with plenty of things both educational and fun to keep him busy. She also regularly takes him out and about to play groups, sensory sessions and has even taken him swimming! He is always tired out when he comes home and looks forward to seeing Ann and being in her care. Ann records exactly what they have done throughout the day, what he has eaten and even when she changes his nappy. Ann also sends me picture messages of him, which is really nice when I'm stuck at work : ) . She really has put my mind at ease with having to return to work. She's caring, and very experienced in childcare. So glad I found her! Thank you Ann

Aww that is so thoughtful, Thank you so much xx

Ann is an excellant child minder, she has looked after my little daughter Isabelle since she was 6 weeks old due to me having my own business at home. She was a massive help to us all and has really given us some sound advice thoughout the past 20 months.
Ann has been looking after Isabelle 3-4 days up to the present time.
Isabelle really enjoys her company and has come on really well with all her mile stones. The care and attention that Ann has given Isabelle has been invaluable.
