Flexible childcare, day, night, weekend.


Registered Childminder in Queensbury, Bradford- Quality childcare in a caring home environment.
I am an Ofsted Registered Childminder, providing flexible childcare from birth upwards, in a caring home environment. My aim is to support parents to help their children become independent, happy, confident and well rounded individuals, to thrive & reach their full potential.
I work reliably, professionally, with high standards and in close partnership with parents. My home is very child oriented, welcoming & friendly and I am a warm, caring, calm, organised & safety conscious person; this helps babies and children to settle quickly and securely with me. I provide wrap around care for nursery and school; this will ensure the stability, familiarity and security of continuous care for your child throughout babyhood and their school life.
I have comprehensive plans, policies and procedures which I follow covering all aspects of my setting, providing important information and peace of mind for parents. I understand how difficult it can sometimes be for parents returning to work. I fully appreciate the responsibility involved when caring for someone’s child. Parents are central to their child’s life and the ones making decisions on their behalf. I therefore always do my best to be supportive and involve parents, to instil confidence, to meet their wishes and their child’s needs, working together for the benefit of their child.
Sharing information is made a high priority, allowing parents vital involvement in their child’s day and providing continuity of their child’s care.
My training is extensive and ongoing. It includes achieving my CACHE Level 3 Certificate in Childminding Practice in October 2011. I complete a 12 hour training course in Paediatric First Aid every 3 years. I also complete courses in Child Protection, Food Hygiene and Health & Safety every 3 years. I attend training offered to support the ‘Early Years Foundation Stage’ and ‘Every Child Matters’. I also attend courses on Equal Opportunities, Inclusion, Diversity and Partnership Working. I have attended many other training courses, workshops, support groups and information sessions and am committed to keeping abreast of relevant training in the future. This is all taken on outside my working hours.

Please contact me for information about my vacancies and current fees, or for any other information.

My Experience

I have been childminding for 8 years and I love it.
I have experience with twins and new born babies.
I go the extra mile at all times and will also help parents by tailoring childcare for your individual needs.
I am also first aid trained and also hold a food and hygiene certificate.
Meals are prepared on a daily basis.
Breakfast and lunch and dinner provided and inclusive of fees.
We provide Milk and water and smoothies too.
Plenty of fruit served each day and healthy snacks.
Children in my setting are also encouraged to be potty trained and I work in partnership with parents to reach this goal.
Before any child moves on they are potty trained and ready for primary school.

My little boy had been going to kristina a for a year or so. He absolutely loved being there and always asked about kristina and wanted to go see her, we never had any issues with him going as he loved to be there. Updates on my sons day were always detailed and on time, kristina made good healthy food and snacks which my son always enjoyed. His verbal and communication skills had come on so well since being with kristina along with his confidence.
I would 100 percent recommend kristina to anyone, she was always so helpful and very flexible which was perfect for us as I wasn’t always sure when I was going to be at work but kristina worked around us and was a massive help and support throughout my sons time with her. Thank you so much for everything you’ve done for Roman x

My daughter came to Kristina at the begining of lock down as i am a key worker and my daughter was welcomed with open arms at a short notice. She settled in fast and was soon coming home talking about her new friends. Since she has been going to kristinas she has learned how to talk more and use more words, also learned her alphabet from Kristinas setting. Im glad i found Kristina coz i dont think id be happy with her being else where. Kristina does alot with the children; learning, playing, and writting and drawing. Also has delicious healthy meals and the kids are always fully fed such as little snacks and main meals. Encourages them to ear fruits and veg. Kristina is just absolutely brilliant at her job and as a normal person. Will be with her for a long time x

Kristina started looking after Abou at the age of 8 months and he's now 14mths. Abou starts smiling and he's face brightens up when you call kristina's name. Kristina is very experienced, caring, professional and flexible. I have learned few tips from her about how cope with a clinging child. Abou is now more confident and independent because of Kristina. I am confident in leaving Abou under Kristina's care as she loves him like her own.

Kristina and her mum both look after my daughter Teresa. They are very flexible with the needs I require for the hours I work which is fantastic. Teresa loves being in Kristina's care. Teresa has made some fantastic friends, and her development has improved greatly since going to Kristina. She knows all of her colours ,can count, and helping with her development ready for school. I would definitely recommend Kristina for anyone looking for a childminder.
