About Me

Preparing for SEPTEMBER intakes and places now.


Hi my name is Chris. I am an Ofsted Registered "Good" Childminder September 2019. I provide the 2, 3 & 4 year old free childcare hours. I provide a lovely 'home from home' environment for children. I understand the importance of forming a secure attachment with the key people in their lives. I pride myself on working closely with all my parents, to help provide the best care for their children.

I live with my wife and son. I am very active and am always busy going to local parks, farms, forests & anywhere that involves fun and activity. When we are at home we like baking, gardening, painting or making models from play dough or playing with the various toys that I have here in our home. I have ample room for a variety of play in a safe area throughout the whole year.

I live in a 3 bed house. We have a lovely garden that has a lawn, and large area for playing and enjoyment. We have plenty of outdoor educational toys, to learn and have hours of fun. I have a cat called Bella who spends her time outside. I have 2 small dogs called Honey & Teddy Bear. I have dedicated sleeping room upstairs with travel cots if required.

Both you and your child are welcome to come and visit my family and home to discuss your own personal needs, requirements and expectations, so I warmly look forward to hearing from you.

My Experience


***I collect from Christchurch Primary School in Hanham***. I also have my own son, and I believe this gives me a very good insight into children and their ways. I have a deep understanding of children who may have additional needs, as this comes from my son who has Asperges & Sensory Processing Disorder. I am able to deal with challenging situations with positive outcomes on a daily basis. All children are given the same opportunities regardless of any additional needs or requirements.

Collection and drop offs depending on locations and times.

I have regular contact with friends children who range in ages from 4 weeks to 16 years of age.

My son has been with Chris since he 11th months old and absolutely loves it there. He has a really good relationship with Chris and is excited to get there in the mornings. They spend lots of time outside which is great and doing lots of activities. He has a beautiful home/facilities and very friendly dogs & a cat! He has been really flexible and accommodating to my need for term-time only and drop off/pick up times. Would highly recommend!

I was in need of care for my 10 year old son and Chris was able to assist which was a great help, much liked by my son and very good at what he does. When I move down to the area I will be using him again. Thank you Chris

Our daughter Tabbie was looked after by Chris for the last three months, and our experience could not have been more positive. We hoped for a 'home from home' feel which is precisely what we got. Chris provided a safe, loving, fun and educational home for Tabbie whilst we worked.

Toys, activities, cooking, day trips.... everyday our Tabbie was up to something different. Chris kept us posted of what she was up to, and was always flexible (and willing) to help on those odd days when work runs late, or traffic catches you out.

I would not hesitate in recommending Chris.
