review of christine sinclair - Childminder in Royston
Christine looked after my little boy for nearly 6 years. I was really apprehensive about using a childminder back then, but thinking back I have never worried about leaving him there as I instantly warmed to her and the environment she provides.
He absolutely loves her and almost became part of her family and would regularly talk about her children (teenagers) who also treated him really well. When he didn't need to go to her in the summer holidays, he would ask when he was seeing Christine again because he missed her.
Christine is naturally very caring attentive, understanding and supportive. She celebrates all the children's achievements, and tells you when something good has happened and If my boy had had a bad day at school she would happily cheer him up and fill me in at the end of the day.
She takes the children out regularly and gets them doing arts and crafts as well. She has a play room with lots of different toys and also gets them in the garden in the summer. I've also known her to do little parties for them too! I found she accommodates for both the younger ones and the school children well and is perfectly situated for Roman way first school and Roysia middle school.
The hours and days I needed and his childcare needs changed as he grew and the years went on and there where times I had to ask her to cover extra hours and change things - Christine was always very flexible, accommodating and again supportive I can't lie there were times I really couldn't have lived without her!
I'm almost glad that although I don't need regular childcare I know there will be times I will need a little extra help, otherwise I would also be saying we where really going to miss her!
I can't thank Christine enough for all her help and for looking after my now not so little boy as well as she has!
I highly recommend her! :-)
