Anna Gammage

My name is Anna and would like to introduce you to my childminding business, Almost like Home. As the name suggests, I provide childminding services from our family home and offer a setting that is a home from home for your special young ones.


I have a wealth of experience gained over 18 years working within childcareworking as a Nanny, preschool worker, after school carer and now as a registered Childminder. My last OFSTED Inspection was in March 2011, where I was awarded OUTSTANDING for the second time running in all categories of the Care and Education that I provide.


We are based in the beautiful village of Brafield on he Green, Northamptonshire where I live with my two boys their Daddy. We share our house with lots of friendly loving animals including dogs, fish, a parrot a budgie.


I have achieved a cache level 3 NVQ in children's care, learning and development and hold a up to date British Red Cross first aid certificate for child carers. I believe strongly in keeping my childcare knowledge up to date and attend courses throughout each year to keep myself updated with new OFSTED standards and practices.
