About Me

I am available for day time care and Marshgate School collection and after school care. I became a childminder after the birth of my son twenty seven years ago, I literally fell into the profession after working at a creche as a favour for a friend. I love my job and feel very honoured to have the privilege of caring for children as my vocation. Since starting childminding I have had great experiences with family's and still stay in touch with most of the children I have cared for.

My Experience

As a mother of two and also over twenty five years of childminding experience I feel confident that I can offer a safe and happy environment for children, I believe children are all individual and learn from them daily, in order to meet their needs and those of their parents.

My Qualifications

I am fully qualified in first aid for the early years, a fully qualified childminder and am Ofsted registered

My Availability

I am available five days a week for day care and to collect and care for children from Marshgate Primary School

My daughters aged 6 and 8 went to Abi's for a year. She was so good with them, and initially shy, they grew really fond of her and her two lovely cats luna and bomber. they looked forward to their time there, and even now, they ask if they can go once again to Abi's house after school, although we have moved.
We miss you a lot Abi.

I miss them too! Call me anytime if you need me

My son was looked after by Abby for two years but we sadly had to stop using her services at the end of this school year as he was moving to a different school. He adored Abby (and her gorgeous and child-friendly cats). You will be missed. Thank you for two memorable years xxxx

I miss you too! An absolute pleasure.x

My son has been going to Abigail’s after school for three years. He loves it and asks to go on days I come to collect him from school! Abigail is caring and fun and the children love her.

Abi looked after my daughter after school for over 2 years when we moved in to the area. My daughter settled in quickly and made many friends. I’d highly recommend Abi as she has a wealth of experience and is extremely welcoming and warm

Abi has been looking after our 6 year old daughter for 3 year and our 2 year old son for a year. we had a bad a experience with our previous nanny and we were blessed to be introduced to Abi. From the moment both our kids met her they loved her, the settling in period from my daughter was just a minute. Abi is always smiley and natural with children. My son in the morning runs to her house and it is clear how much he loves his time there. Her house is full of toys for all ages and they are always busy with creative activities. My daughter loves their colouring and cooking sessions . My son loves playing in the garden and spending time with the older kids in the afternoon and Abi is always with him to guide him and provide him with educational toys and help him learn. Abi offers all the thing kids need to be happy ,safe and develop. We highly recommend Abi !
