My name is Christine and I have been an Ofsted approved registered childminder since 2008. I live in the Kings Acre area with my husband, my children are adults with families of their own. We live in a detached bungalow with enclosed back garden and have a no smoking policy in our home. My last Ofsted inspection was in December 2018 and my provision was graded as 'GOOD'. I maintain a warm, welcoming and safe environment where children can feel secure, valued and respected. Somewhere they can play, discover, learn and relax. I provide a wide variety of resources and activities to engage children's interests and further their development.
Our garden area has a 'Wendy' house with children's play kitchen etc. to promote pretend play, a music wall, mud kitchen, water play, little tikes jungle climbing frame and various ride on equipment. There are a few woodlands and parks nearby where I take children for walks and to play on bigger equipment.
I have relevant business insurance on the car to enable me to take children on visits to farm parks and other places of interest.
I am able to offer school drop off and collection from Trinity Primary School

My daughter joined Chris and her family in 2011, when she was around 7 months old. Beth became part of the family and was well looked after. Chris takes the children to Play Groups and does so many activities at home. At one point the children were into Frozen and she made this fantastic Frozen play area, which included a Ice Castle and she had used a sand bucket to get the castle shape, so simple and the children loved it.
Chris is a very caring lady and loves children. Great Childminder
Response by Chris 57 on 05/08/2017:
Thank you Julia for your valued and lovely comments. One of my commitments is to feed the children's interests to encourage their learning and development. The 'Frozen' sensory tray was a huge success and it was a lot of fun setting it up and seeing the delight on the little ones' faces. Beth is still talked about and we remember with fondness her wonderful sense of humour and the lovely 'tales' she would tell us.
