Nicky has looked after 3 of my children in the past 5 years. My eldest 2 are now teenagers so she currently still has my 6yr old son. I have always been made very welcome in her home and she alwats lends me a friendly ear if i need help with something. All my children have loved coming to nicks and Aj never wants to come home. There is always fun activities going on and when the sun is shining alot of out door adventures. I can not fault the care given to the children. Very friendly lady and loving family who welcome you into their home.

Nicky has worked incredibly hard over the last year she has looked after my daughter to ensure she is happy and settled with her.

Nicky and her family are very welcoming and there is a wonderful warmth about their house. Nicky provides excellent communication between herself and parents, daily updates are recorded in the diary and the termly learning journals are teaming with information and wonderful moments from my daughter's time with Nicky.

I would highly recommend Nicky to anyone. She is flexible, seeks advice from parents if needed and very much sees her work as a partnership with parents. The children spend lots of time outside, visiting local parks and playgrounds. Nicky organises lots of different activities each day for the children to participate in.

We are only moving on as my daughter will now start attending nursery. Thank you Nicky.

Everyone is a little nervous about returning to work after having a child but Nicky has been outstanding and ever since our child joined her at just under a year old he has grown in confidence, skills, social skills and so much more. She plans great days for the children and does as much as she can outside with nature. His academic skills such as speaking, numbers, colours etc improve every week due to the activities that Nicky sets for him. He loves his days with her and has so much fun! We love the daily diary we receive and always look forward to his ‘learning journals’ which she makes each term as this allows us to be a part of it. We are so thankful that we found her (via a recommendation) as its a great setting and our son loves her!
