My little boy started with Christine at a precious 7 months and we couldnt have asked for a better childminder. She reassured us in the early days sending lots of updates & photos. He has came on so much in such a short space of time. He is now a very content & happy little boy getting up to lots of mischief! Christine treats kids like her own and she has a heart of gold only towards the kids but also to parents. We will all miss her very much as we move back to Ireland💙

Thank you for the lovely review I will miss you all x

Christine has looked after my little girl for the last 2 years, she has provided top class care with state of the art facilities. She offers a real home from home environment for my little girl, settling in period was extremely smooth for not only my girl but for me as an anxious mummy!
She has taught my little girl FANTASTIC manners, how to share and most importantly to treat everyone with respect. Christine does not only have state of the art facilities at home but she provides healthy meals for the children, plans days out through half terms and is always out at the park or local playgroups.
Christine has helped me over the years with parenting advice and always provided a flexible service. She also has 2 excellent assists so each child gets a lot of 1-2-1 attention for learning and preparing for school.
Christine is more like a best friend to my 4 year old and its been an absolute pleasure sharing my duties as a mother with someone as lovely and caring as Christine.

Thank you for the lovely review we all miss her 😘

We’ve been with Christine for more than three years and really couldn’t imagine anyone else caring for our two children (aged four and 18 months).
We wanted a more homely environment than a nursery could offer that fitted around our working hours, and Christine’s is a real home from home for our boys.
Her facilities are great (she has a lovely big playroom and garden) and the boys have a variety of activities such as arts and crafts, free play and lots of trips to local groups, library and the park.
We get daily updates on what they’ve been doing and what they’ve eaten. Our eldest is shortly starting school and is happy, confident and has been well prepared for school in terms of literacy and numeracy. We’ve got a folder charting his progress in the last three years to show to his new teacher.
A balance of kindness, care and professionalism, our boys think the world of Christine and her lovely assistants- and so do we!

Thank you for the lovely review it’s a pleasure to look after the boys.

I have known Christine for nearly 7 years as she attended school whilst childminding a girl in my sons year. When I had my 3rd child I knew exactly who I wanted to childmind him however as Christine is so good she rarely had vacancies and was unable to take my son. Fate played a hand and a child left because grandparents were going to mind them and I took the vacancy. I never looked back as my son was always happy. Her house is immaculate and she spoils the children always making sure she has good condition toys for them and frequently buying new ones! My son has now started school and as I work school hours I no longer need her. She has played a big part in his life and we will continue to be friends and plan visits to see her. I would highly recommend Christine, not only from my personal perspective but she has an OFSTED outstanding review which is the second time she has managed this that I am aware of.

Christine has looked after my daughter from 6 months old to 10 years of age. For the last 9+ years I have been able to go to work without any worries in the knowledge that my daughter has the best possible care in a safe environment.
Christine caters for all ages of children and provides toys and activities for each stage of development, from outdoor play and day trips to arts and crafts etc
Once my daughter started school Christine was able to do the drop off and pick up and provided nutritious evening meals with snack/refreshments.
Christine has proved to be flexible and is always willing to work later or earlier should the need arise!
I saw quite a few childminders before I chose Christine to care for my daughter, and I know I made the right choice.
