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 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 daughter delilah has been going to kristina for 5 months, she has always been very funny around other people/ children, so i was very dubious about sending her, but i knew she needed it to bring her along, i did my research and came across kristina, she is amazing, very friendly and her personality is so warming and you can tell ahe genuinelly loves her job. Delilah now walks in happily. She is changing so much and learning lots whilst with kristina. I would highly recommend kristina, she cares about you and your childs needs! X

My little boy has been going to Kristina since he was 12+ months. I was bit apprehensive initially since he was too young but Kristina always clarified my doubts and assured me he will be taken care exactly as I do it at home. It is almost 10 months and he absolutely loves being there now. Kristina always shares daily updates on what he did and ate at her place. She makes good food and snacks which my son always enjoys. His verbal and communication skills is also improving along with his confidence. I would 100 percent recommend Kristina as she is very flexible and helpful. Thank you so much.

My daughter really enjoys coming to Kristina. My daughter will run to her front door when dropping her off because of her excitement, as a parent this is very comforting knowing she’s in an environment she really loves. My daughters confidence has rocketed since attending, the balance between play and learning is perfect. Kristina is always very informative on the activities from the day and gives a great homemade food which is really important to me. Kristina really is super and I don’t know how we’ll ever leave. Thank you Kristina for all you do.

My son has been going to Kristinas child care for nearly 2 years now. He learns a lot and always comes home in a great mood telling me what he's been doing that day. I really struggled finding a childminder that would work with my flexible working pattern but this was no problem for Kristina and I'm grateful she can cater to our needs. Highly recommended!
