My house is well equipped and I have a large enclosed garden with play equipment offering children the access to be outdoors as much as possible.

Christine is an excellent childminder! My daughter has been cared for by Christine for 9 months so far and she has settled in and absolutely loves being with Christine, she even calls her mama. Christines house is like a home from home, so warm and friendly and Phoebe settled in straight away. Christine is so helpful and accomodating, nothing is too much trouble :) I am really grateful as she has allowed me peace of mind knowing that my daughter is in safe, caring hands whilst I am working. Thank you so much Christine xxx

My little boy Finian loves going to rarras. She is more like a grandma than a child minder. Finian settled in straight away, if I'm
Honest, he doesn't want to come home!! I would have no hesitation in recommending Christine. She is very loving and caring with all the children in her care, she treats them as she soul her own. Christine is very flexible which is important for working parents. 110%
