About Me

My name is Chloe Ridden, and my setting is called Little Green Shoots. I am an Ofsted registered Childminder, with an up to date Paediatric First Aid certificate, and an Enhanced DBS. I am also a member of Pacey.
I am based in North Kingston, and I have 2 children who attend Latchmere Primary School. I can offer drop off or pick up from Latchmere if needed.
I provide a ‘home from home’ childcare service, based in my light and airy flat. We have a playroom with a range of toys for different age groups. We do lots of activities – craft and junk modelling, nature walks, pottering in the garden, and cookery and baking to name a few. We have easy access to the beautiful Richmond Park, riverside walks, and many local playgrounds. We also make use of the excellent local playgroups, including North Kingston Children’s centre.
Most mornings we are out and about making use of all the fantastic local amenities, getting lots of fresh air and learning about the world around us. After lunch your child will have the opportunity to nap at home if needed, or take part in an activity or free play.
I follow the EYFS learning and development requirements, and help your child to learn through play in a caring and stimulating environment.
I provide healthy and nutritious meals and snacks, and a home cooked meal if your child is with me until 5 pm.
I am open from 8:00 am to 5:30 pm term time.

My Availability

We are currently looking to sell our house, so I won't be available for a permanent childminding role. However I am available for ad hoc care, daytime and evening babysitting, and emergency cover. The children I currently care for are growing up, and moving on to schools and nurseries, so I can be flexible during school hours to suit your needs.
