Hello I'm Krissy, I am 34 and married with 2 children born in 2011 and 2013, I also have a step daughter born 2004. I also have 1 dog, 1 cat, 3 chickens, some fish and a Giant African land snail. I decided to start up as a childminder as it allows me to work in a field I am passionate about. I have grown up in a large family and I enjoy the hustle and bustle children add to a home.
I am very friendly and reliable, I provide a home from home setting where children are able to feel comfortable. I encourage and promote every child to thrive and gain confidence / experiences to develop to their full potential. All children get the attention and care that they require.
My mum has been a childminder since I was 12 and from the age of 16 I have been her childminding assistant. I have experience in care homes. After having my own children, it has made me want to start my own childminding business.

Krissy is a wonderful, caring childminder who takes great pride in getting to know children as individuals and working out how to encourage the best from them. She has been amazing with my 6 year old son and he is always excited to see her - he loves her almost as a family member rather than his childminder.
There are always games and crafts and fun things to get excited about when Krissy is around, and she has a great sense of humour and fun. I was delighted that she has such a love of animals and likes to share this with the children she looks after. She is extremely experienced and good natured and knows exactly how to deal with any situation that could arise when childminding. I would definitely recommend Krissy and thank her for all her hard work with my son.
Our son has been with Krissy for over 7 months now and I could not be happier with the service she provides.
Krissy absolutely adores children and in my opinion goes above and beyond to provide us with the best possible care for our child. I work in the NHS and Krissy has been brilliant at providing a flexible service to fit in around my work schedule. As well as this, Krissy is always happy to provide advice and information regarding your childs development. The environment that the children are cared for is best described as a "home away from home" and our son absolutely loves going there and spending time with her and the other children. The app that Krissy uses is brilliant for keeping us updated on how our little one is getting on not only throughout the day but also in terms of developmental milestones. I could not recommend Krissy enough, she really is a fantastic childminder and our son absolutely adores her.
Krissy was pleasant to deal with, however in my opinion she is not a professional carer, she let's personal feeling getting in the way of caring for other people's children.
There was an incident between my son and her son at school, which we discussed and thought everything was resolved, but out of the blue I was the only parent to have their sons care terminated.
Krissy's actions have emotionally traumatised my 7yr old son. Krissy's reasons were misleading.
Please don't be fooled by this lady's smile.
Response by Krissy on 23/10/2019:
I can assure you this decision was in no way personal or in anyway a reflection on my working relationship with you or your son. Due to confidentiality laws I am unable to provide you with the details of anyone else affected by changes I am making within my setting however you can rest assured it was a difficult decision to make and one I didn't take lightly.
I’m saddened that you have taken the notice I gave you this morning as a personal attack on your son, in no way was that my intention. The incident you mention in your review happened 5 months ago and as you rightly state was handled swiftly and in no way has or would influence my decision in this case.
I sincerely wish you would have stayed to talk more or come and spoken to me so we could of discussed this properly, rather than leaving abruptly and leaving this review. I have built an excellent reputation for myself over the last 7 years of hard work, dedication and at the fore front of everything I do, are the best interests of the children in my care. Please also note this is the first time I’ve ever had cause to give any of my parents notice and whilst I appreciate this may have come as a shock, please be assured I did so after careful consideration and in accordance with all regulatory and contractual requirements. I’m disappointed by your comments but wish you and your family the best going forward for the future.
