I welcome all children and recognize that they need time to settle into a new environment. I will consult with the parents or carers to accomodate their needs.

My son, who was only 6 months old when he first met Niki, immediately made a connection with her which I believe was primarily down to her warm, sincere and caring personality. He very quickly settled and he enjoys the â€˜home for homeâ€™ child care which Niki provides.
She has an encouraging yet no-nonsense approach with her children who seem to thrive and I have found my sonâ€™s development and wellbeing benefits greatly from this. She has a flexible approach and reliably provides feedback about my sonâ€™s daily routine.
I am reassured that my son is looked after in a safe and positive environment and enjoys an active and busy day when he is with his childminder.
