Our daughter aged 3.5 has just spent the last 18 months with Tricia and Nicci and we are so sad to be moving on.
From day one, it really felt like we were leaving her with family. Perfect home from home setting, warm and welcoming and honestly our daughter never had one bad day.

Tricia and Nicci work tirelessly to give the children and fun and varied days with everything from crafts and games at home, to trips out and everything in between. Providing healthy meals and snacks all the while being fully focused on teaching and the children's development in all areas. Our daughter came on leaps and bounds over the 18 months and it wasn't uncommon for us to say 'she must have learnt that with Tricia' when she surprised us with something new.

Each day we were provided with a full run down of everything from activities to feeding and toileting etc in her handover book and we were sent lots of photos after each day. Excellent communication!

Everything from safeguarding, teaching, adhering to all the various policies, are taken very seriously and we never had any doubt that we were leaving her in the very best of care and would not hesitate to recommend Tricias Childcare. If your child were to receive half the love, care, teaching, fun and attention that our little girl has, then they will be very lucky indeed.
Honest and reliable, if we ever need a Childminder in the future we will not look anywhere else.

Thank you Tricia and Nicci. W, M and B

Being a social worker in a child protection team makes me cautious (and anxious) about who cares for my daughter, however I do not believe I would trust anyone more than I trust Tricia & Nicci to provide the care my daughter deserves within such a setting.

My daughter is 9 now, she has been with Tricia & Nicci for over two years, she has flourished in their care. Tricia & Nicci are able to anticipate & meet the entirety of her holistic needs on a consistent basis. They are transparent in their caregiving & implement fair guidance & boundaries which results in the children getting along with each other well.

We really cannot rate Tricia & Nicci highly enough, if like myself you are anxious about who cares for your child when you are not around then I would encourage you to explore Tricia & Nicci as childminders; they are nurturing, professional & child focused.

My daughter has been attending Tricias since she was 8 months old (shes 4 now!) and I couldnt wish or hope for anyone better to look after my little girl.

Tricia has always offered the perfect home setting. She is ALWAYS doing something with the children, play groups most days, farm trips, autumn walks, summer picnics, cinemas, crafting, fairs etc. Knowing my little girl is having lots of fun and learning all the time has definitely eased the working mummy guilt.

I cannot recommend Tricia enough and im truely gutted my little girl wont be attending as of Sept 2017! Thank you for everything you have done xxx

P.s. The food Tricia cooks/provides is so varied and brilliant- my daughter definitely eats better than me!

I cannot recommend Trisha enough! Her & her daughter Nicci are great. They are both so fun & loving. They spend so much time with each individual child teaching them new things, my daughter (2) has already learnt so much from these guys. They are very reliable, in just over a year that my daughter has been with Trisha's childcare there has never been a day that i have had to find alternate childcare, as she has a back up childminder ready to stand in as and when needed :)
My daughter always looks forward to going in the mornings and actually most evenings crys because she doesn't want to come home. That must count for something, right?
They take the children out everyday to somewhere different, no matter what the weather. They turn negatives into positives. They work hard to make sure each individual child is catered for, whether it be a certain activity your child prefers down to the food they like.
They are the best!! I could sit here all day talking about how fantastic they are. If you want good childcare and your child/children to be happy, then you know what to do CHOOSE TRISHA :) you WONT be disappointed!

My daughter has been looked after by Tricia since March 2014. I could not wish for better care for my child, she's beyond a regular childminder, more like a family member. Extremely thoughtful and warm but educational at the same time, full of ideas for every day including lots of trips outside, for example softplay with always healthy lunch, farms, different parks, shopping, cinema, library, local fairs, sea life in Trafford Centre to name a few. My daughter loves spending time there and I would change Tricia even for a million pounds :)
