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.

I found Kristina on here, after visiting a few different childminders in the area we decided to go with Kristina because our little girl instantly took a liking to Kristina.. My daughter is 2.5 years old and has never been away from me or my husband as we have always managed the childcare between us. We now have another baby on the way and our little girl will be due to start nursery next year so we thought it was time for her to start having some playtime with other children. Our little girl settled in to Kristinas house very quickly and has grown to trust Kristina very quickly. Kristina shows our little girl care and love when we are not there and comforts her if she is having a little wobble about being away from us. She always bounces out at the end of the day with endless tales of what her and the other children have been up to during the day. Kristina also provides us with a summary at the end of each day to let us know how she has got on. I am very happy that we found Kristina and I hope for our little girl to keep being with Kristina until she joins full time school/ nursery. Hopefully even start our next child with her when the time comes. Thank you Kristina you have really helped our little girl (and mummy) cope with this new part of life.
