I am a married mother of 2. My daughter is 14 and my son is 11. My children both attend local Primary and Secondary schools in this area.
I have worked as a childminder for 8 years. I have two children of my own and work closely with another childminder. I used to help run a stay and play group for a few years before I moved away. I love the outside and incorporate this I’m my weekly planning for the children. I am a member of forest childcare Association and explore nature around us on a daily basis.
Childminding course completed summer 2012. Paediatric First aid completed May 2018 ( I renew this every 3 years) I also attend Childminding courses in the evenings when they are run to improve my knowledge and bring new experiences or do online courses . I have joined National Trust and English Heritage to further develop myself and the children in my care on our culture and history. I promote British values in my settings and offer a variety of activities to promote different cultures and religions. I had my OFSTED Inspection in 2018 and was again graded a solid good in ALL areas, I am happy with my inspection. I have great feedback from my current parents and we communicate on a daily basis.
March 2020. I have enrolled with Swindon College and have completed a distance learning course and am hoping to complete a number of more courses to help improve my knowledge and understanding of children and their behaviours. I have a very friendly 8 year old Labrador’s.
I love the outside and take the children out and about every day. I provide all waterproofs but do ask parents for wellies. I love the outside and have just joined the Forest school association to expand my outside learning.
I work closely with other local childminders and we often visit playgroups, local rivers, forests, quiet friendly beaches, The New Forest, soft plays and have day trips out together. I am a member of National Trust and English Heritage and most weeks are visiting historic places with the children and educate them on our local history. We love the outside and have found the children greatly benefit from our trips. I also have an annual membership to Cholderton Charlie Farm.
Because of COVID-19 I have amended where I go but do not feel the enjoyment of the children has not faltered.
I am currently looking at filling a full time space Monday to Thursday 08.00-16.00/16.30 and Friday 08.00-13.00. From July/September 2021.

My son has been with Chrissie for 12 months since he was 6 months old, starting from the beginning she put me at ease going back to work with such a young son. She sent me photos messages putting my mind at ease that he was having a brilliant time with out me there. As he has got older to the toddler stage she has continued to help him
Grow reach milestones above his age. She is always out and about no matter the weather from farms to playgroups also the library. If your looking for a family environment that no two days are the same then chrissie is one to consider.
Chrissie has looked after my daughter for the past 2 and a half years (since 10 months) and I cannot rate her highly enough. She always gives us a daily update and we get photo/video updates during the day. She always ensures that they spend time out of the house either outdoors at an activity or attending local preschool groups. We get regular updates on our child’s development via an online portal including the activities that are tailor made to support Early years education and development. Chrissie also minds our older school aged daughter and equally ensures activities that keep her entertained and challenged.
My sons 2 and has been with Chrissie now for 20 months. He loves every second he has with Chrissie and doesnt stop talking about his fab days he has with her. Hes learnt so much in 20 months and always comes back with lovely art work to show me and tell me about.
I couldnt fault chrissie as a childminder at all, shes a lovely caring lady with a lot of knowledge on children and there needs of all ages.
