Chris is everything we had hoped for in childminder. She put us at ease immediately and we felt extremely confident in leaving our son for the first time and he absolutely loves it . Chris creates a fun and educational environment and is attentive to development opportunities and logs these in our sons own little diary , so we never feel we miss out on important milestones such as his first steps . We are always kept updated and received pictures of what our son has been up to, such as visiting the local park and feeding the ducks . Chris is a kind, patient person and fantastic childminder. I am very glad we found her!

Chris had looked after my daughter since she was 13months old when I went back to work. She was a clingy baby and I was nervous about leaving her. M settled in really well and I felt secure in leaving her. M has been with Chris since Nov 2012 and leaves July 2015 as she will be going to school. Chris is an active childminder and has a well planned out week. Typically falmer palmers, the library (weekly group which M had received certificates and books), parks and groups. She has a dedicated "main" room in her bungalow with lots of bright colourings, games, weather charts and topics. Secure garden with outdoor games also. I feel Chris also offers value for money as she provides snacks and lunch. She's also worked with M preschool to keep information consistent and up to date. M had made some lovely friends whilst being with Chris and built up a good relationship with her too that I'm sure it's going to hard to leave next month. I would fully recommend Chris in an instant.

I have used Chris for many months and I can highly recommend her. My children have loved going to her. She does lots of activities with them and takes them out daily to different places like Farmer Palmers and the beach. I can leave them knowing they are happy and in safe hands.
