My one year old son has been cared for by Nickki for 5 months and the care he has at Two Shoes is fantastic. The settling in period Nickki provided was excellent and ensured that my son had no problem making the transition to day care.
My son looks forward to going to Nickki's and enjoys his days so much he wants to keep playing when I arrive to pick him up. This means I can be a working mum safe in the knowledge that my boy is receiving top class care from a nurturing, loving, caring person who does everything just as a mum would. Nickki is a true professional and her standards are second to none.
My little boy has a fun, safe, happy, stimulating environment and I believe he feels it is like another little family setting for him. He gets to do lots of outdoor and indoor activities which are fun, educational and enables him to learn lots, develop his skills and socialise with other children.
We are lucky to have Nickki and she is working hard always to meet the needs of all children in her care and gives 110% to them, whilst listening to parents and knowing what is right for the children just like Mum!
I would recommend Nickki's childminding service very much and say that children in her care are lucky to have such a wonderful caregiver.

Our son Peter has been with Twoshoes for just over a year a half now. Thanks to Nickki's calm and loving approach he took very little time to settle in and seems to continue to enjoy coming there every morning.
There is a wide range of activities and toysâ€“ both indoors and outdoors for kids to play. Outings are a regular thing too and Peter thoroughly enjoys going to soft plays, parks, museums, beaches, shows, play groups and many many more.
Nickki's professionalism is outstanding - she has built an excellent relationship with both children and parents and there is no doubt sheâ€™s giving 100% into her work. She always goes the extra mile to ensure that Peter is entertained, stimulated and above all well cared for.
Weâ€™re very pleased with the level of care and professionalism and would definitely recommend Twoshoes to anyone who is looking for safe, loving and stimulating environment for their children.
