Hi, my name is Christine and I am an Ofsted registered childminder in Rose Green, i live with my partner, my daughters, 4 and 19 months, my mum (my assistant and has also completed paediatric first aid) my boxer dogs and some ducks.
It was when i had my first daughter that i decided to go in to childcare, like many mum's i was worried about returning to work so i made the decision to do my training as a childminder whilst on maternity leave with the aim to provide the kind of care/environment i would expect for my daughters.
We live in a large family home offering a safe, secure and fun environment. We have a large lounge/playroom with plenty of exciting things to do including toys, messy play and arts and crafts. The lounge area leads to a secure covered outside play area containing more exciting things with a mud kitchen, sand pit and water play.
We spend a lot of time in our large private garden which is split in to sections, the covered play area as an extension of the lounge/playroom with games and toys, a large grassed area for all kinds of activities, a vegetable patch for growing (and eating) our own and a large play area surrounded by trees with a climbing frame, trampoline, swings and a fairy garden. In this area we also go looking for wildlife we have bug houses, a pond, a hedgehog hotel and lots of bird nesting boxes. We also have ducks which children love to feed and help care for.
We have an ideal location with 3 playgrounds and a library within walking distance, Hotham Park, Bognor and Pagham beach only a short drive away. Home cooked meals and healthy snacks can be provided. Reductions are available for long term contracts.
Vacancies available, please contact me for further details.
I have previously worked in a playschool but my main experience with children is my daughters, first hand experience of a newborn through to toddler, my nieces and nephew and friends little ones who i look after regularly with the oldest now 8 and at school.

Below are the latest reviews for Christine. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.
Christine has been looking after my son and daughter for 5 months now and we could not be happier with her childminding services. More importantly; our children love going to her and often complain when we pick them up, because they want to play at her house longer 😁
It’s made my transition in returning to work so much easier; knowing that they are in safe hands and enjoying their time with Christine so much!
Christine is very kind and caring and offers a broad range of activities both inside and outside her home.
I would highly recommend Christine to anyone looking for a childminder.
