Angela Nobles

My name is Angela and I live in Wokingham. I first thought about becoming a childminder after I had my son in 2004.

Young children need caring adults to form an emotional attachment to help them feel secure.

Here we love the great outdoors. I have chickens, ducks, 2 very child friendly dogs & a pony. The children love to help care for animals & playing on the wide variety of outdoor toys. In the summer we have a vegetable patch & the children love to see things grow. We eat; make jam or cakes from the things we harvest. The playroom is designated to the young children. Art, cooking, singing, music, puzzles, reading area, are just a few of the things we offer here. Visiting parks & farms to venturing into nearby woodland are on offer most days.

I have a diploma, NNEB and 14 years of experience as a registered child-minder. I was also a private nanny for 10 years and have references.  I've Completed many courses offered by pacey to help further knowledge in caring young children. 

As a registered childminder I will provide your child with a safe, caring, and most of all fun environment, meeting the requirements set out in the Department for Education’s Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework. The EYFS sets the standards that all early years providers must meet to ensure that children learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe. It promotes teaching and learning to ensure children’s ‘school readiness’ and gives children the broad range of knowledge and skills that provide the right foundation for good future progress through school and life.

I will provide your child with activities both indoors and outdoors that support the key learning areas. These are; personal, social and emotional development, physical development, communication and language, literacy, mathematics, understanding of the world and expressive arts and design. These will be met through both routine and spontaneous activities.

Most importantly I would like your child to feel at home whilst in my care, and I will do everything possible to make them feel at ease and happy.

I work with Alexandra Carrilho in my home, who is also a fully registered childminder. This offers much more flexibility & means younger ones do not need to go in school runs.
