I am mother of three adult children and a friendly small dog.
I specialise in home Italian cooking, I also do school pick-ups and drop offs.
I am committed to providing a fun, friendly and safe environment for the children in my care. I endeavor to provide children with stimulating learning opportunities that reflect their age and stage of development through play and every day experiences.
I understand that each child is an individual and treat them with care, empathy and respect. I provide a nutritious and balanced diet, encouraging the children to make healthy food choices.
I follow the guidance of the Early Years Foundation Stage and make regular written observations of the children in my care in order to plan activities to support their individual development and needs.
I believe in working in partnership with parents; welcoming ideas and encouraging parents to provide me with comments and suggestions in their child’s development folder or when they have time to talk.
-I have a large garden with lots of different equipment, and the children have their own plot to grown plants and veg.
-I have a craft room where we do lots of messy play, model making etc.
-We attend stay and play sessions, library and local parks etc
There is plenty of parking by my house and I am local to bus and train stations for Croydon and London.

My son is 2 years old and has been going to CC's for nearly a year now. He was originally looked after during work hours by his Grandma so finding a suitable childminder that was very family orientated and felt like a home from home for him was crucial. We had visited many childminders beforehand and the minute we first visited CC's the energy, care and love was undeniable and immediately could feel my son at ease in her home and was content that this would be the perfect environment for him to laugh and learn in. Each child's developmental stage is individually tailored to, they eat home cooked food everyday, have a great outdoor play space and do engaging activities everyday. it is clear he is flourishing from being here. We love reading at the end of each day everything he's been up to in his little blue book and would highly recommend to anyone that is looking for the same things that I was!
Christine has been caring for our two girls since June 2018 and it’s safe to say they love her. Both have thrived in her care and it’s clear she has a very special bond with the children she looks after. The girls time with her is spent having fun which includes learning though play in a safe a homely environment. We would recommend Christine without hesitation.
My son has been with CC since Oct 2017, and we could not be happier with how he is progressing. Since day 1 she has shown how caring she is with all her children, and you can see they all feel very happy with her. My son is so confident and independent now, and is developing into a wonderful little boy with CC's help. All the meals are home made, and they get to spend lots of time outdoors as well which i think is really good for them. We will sadly be leaving soon as we are moving areas and we wish we could take CC with us.
All 3 of our children have been minded by Christine since 2008. She has been an amazing carer who has had a positive effect on all of our children. She provides a safe, happy and enriching learning environment, providing daily updates of the children's experiences. I would highly recommend Christine to anyone who is looking for an educational and nurturing environment for their children.
