My Summary

Ofsted Registered

About Me

My name is Corinne and I am a registered OFSTED childminder with a Good (level 2) rating as of May 2018.

I live a short five minute walk from the centre of Chichester and about the same distance to St Richards Hospital. I live with my partner, nine year old daughter and two friendly pedigree house cats.

My passion is cooking from fresh ingredients and think it is extremely important to pass this onto children and teach them how to make healthy food choices. I do love being outside and keeping active so you can be sure no day is the same with your little one!

In between taking my daughter to and from school I attend toddler groups daily and then create an activity in the afternoon such as the park, a lovely walk or simply free play with the toys in my setting.

As of October 2016 I was granted a Level 5 Hygiene Rating.

My Experience

I have new born experience, toddler experience and pre school experience. I used to co run a toddler group on a Wednesday morning at The Prebendal School along West Street.

I also have experience with children who have physical disabilities, my nephew has CP and have cared for him on numerous occasions.

My Fees

  • Childminding from £8.00 per hour

I only care for two minded children at a time so I can create a secure bond with the children and give them the care and attention they need in order to thrive in all aspects of their development. My hourly rate is slightly higher than other childminders because of this.

Included in my hourly rate is freshly cooked and prepared meals together with refreshments. Activities such as toddler groups, baby gym, soft play and swimming will be included too.

If any specific diet requirements are needed the price per hour may be increased or reduced accordingly. Any siblings will be offered a reduced rate.

I do accept childcare vouchers, tax free childcare and tax credits as payment towards my fees, however, I do not accept 15 or 30 hour funding for 2,3 & 4 year olds.

Below are the latest reviews for Corinne. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk.

I found Corinne on childcare.co.uk whilst looking for ad hoc care for my then 15 month old daughter. I am a musician so my hours were sporadic, and it was increasingly difficult to find someone that could provide this sort of care for my child.

From the first telephone contact with Corinne I found her warm, empathetic and understanding; the first meeting with her just confirmed what I already knew; that my daughter was in the safest of hands. My daughter adored Corinne immediately and I was astonished at how quickly she suddenly learnt new words/actions and her level of expressing herself shot up within a week! As I was working away a lot, Corinne would regularly update me with photos and details of what they were doing, and it made me incredibly happy to see my daughter having such a wonderful time.

I trust Corinne so much that she is still my first port of call for advice when my daughter reaches a new milestone or if she doesn’t seem herself!

I was devastated that I had to move away from the West Sussex area, and one of my main reasons for trying to stay was that my daughter was so happy with Corinne.

I can only wholeheartedly recommend her as a childminder; Corinne is the most wonderful and caring individual and I feel incredibly lucky that she came into our lives!

Corrine has been looking after my 13 month old little boy for 4 months and I can honestly say I am so glad that we found her! My child has been relaxed and happy from his first day with Corrine which makes the hard task of leaving him just that little bit easier.
I particularly like the fact that no two days are the same, there are lots of activities and interactions without it being overwhelming for my little boy. Corrine also provides excellent updates through the day and a summary of all activities and observations at the end of the day so I know exactly what he has been up to.
