Looking after generations of Plymouth's children since 1989

About Anne Riggs

A Little About Myself

I have been married for over 35 years and have three grown-up children. My eldest daughter is a primary school teacher and my youngest a doctor. My son works for a housing association whilst my husband operates his own painting and decorating business in Plymouth. We have a ten year old Springer Spaniel who is calm and friendly around children.

I became fully registered as a childminder in 1989, when my youngest child was still a baby, after working my way up to becoming a nursery childcare supervisor at my children's pre-school. In the years that have passed I have cared for over 40 children, ranging in age from 12 weeks, up to 13 years and including some children with special and complex needs.

I assist at my local Girl Guiding group in my spare time, something which I have done for over twenty years. When my children were younger I also helped out at their Red Cross youth group.

Qualifications & Training

I have an NVQ 3 in Childcare and Education, and a Certificate in Early Years Practice level 4. I regularly attend courses which enable me to keep my skills and knowledge current.

Some relevant childcare courses that I have attended are:
