Looking after generations of Plymouth's children since 1989

Many of the families whose children I have cared for have been happy to provide a reference of my childcare. If you would like to speak to one of the parents who have given a reference I can arrange this for you.

I have had professional contact with Anne over many years and in more recent times she has cared for my grandson over the last two years. She worked closely with us to provide the highest standard of care for our grandson. She was always warm and caring whilst maintaining a consistent set of boundaries that enabled him to feel secure and well cared for. At the numerous different groups they attended he had lots of other children to interact with which helped develop his social skills.
The contribution that Anne has had in helping him to develop into a confident little man, ready to start school, can not be underestimated. She has been hugely influential and he loved going to Anne's but it is a testament to her hard work and patience that he was ready to manage the separation when he started school. Wendy October 2016
Anne cared for our first son for approximately 4 years, from when he was a baby right th rough to when he started school, throughout this time we saw a huge amount of positive development occur. We had no hesitation in utilising Anne when our second son came along and Sol struck up an immediate rapport with Anne which only affirms the total compete nce Anne has in her job.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Anne to anyone considering emp loying a highly professional childminder who is committed to providing a challenging yet rewarding and fun environment in which babies and children can thrive. Martin and Sophie September 2015
For 4½ years my daughter was looked after by Anne. Her professionalism and experience shows clearly through her annual reports and her final leaving journey of everything that she has done in her time spent with Anne. She is so much more than just a childminder. I would recommend her to anyone. Lauren 2009 — 2013
Throughout the time that Anne cared for my child she substantially contributed towards his development both physically and cognitively in such a hugely positive and professional environment. As a forces family we are often prone to last minute adjustments in our planning and Anne has been steadfast in her support to us and more importantly to our son. We cannot recommend nor advocate Anne as a childminder any more than to state that we are soon having our second child and would not hesitate to employ her as our childminder once more, aiding and nurturing our new child through the initial crucial years of their development.

Logan our eldest son attended Anne Riggs Childcare for over 3 years. When our second son was born he was very poorly and Anne was a constant source of support — not only for Logan but us as a whole family. Anne helped Logan to grow and develop and thanks to her help he started school in September 2011 as a happy and confident little boy with the correct foundations in place to help him succeed. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for Childcare and hope she will be able to childmind our youngest son when the time comes. Carrie 2008 — 2011
I can confirm I would highly recommend Anne Riggs as a childminder. Children in her care are always looked after to the highest degree whether they are babies — toddlers or primary school age children. She always has the children entertained and learning at the same time in a range of crafts — games or IT projects. She is unstinting in her support to you as a parent and no request seems too much for her to deal with. In short I cannot rate her highly enough as a childminder — and would never hesitate to place a child in her care again. Collette 1999 — 2009
Thank you for taking such good care of Megan. She came to you a baby and has developed into a confident — chatty and clever young lady and we feel your dedication to providing good — quality childcare has contributed greatly to this. You helped make the big step of going back to work easier for me — knowing that Megan was so happy and well cared for. Thank you for your support and flexibility. Tabitha 2004 — 2006
