*I WILL BE MOVING TO HONITON DEVON DURING AUGUST 2018 AND WILL BE AVAILABLE AS A NANNY OR FOR BABYSITTING*
I live with my 2 sons and our small dog. We have a loving, caring home and enjoy many activities together.
I offer a friendly 'home from home' warm atmosphere, which encourages children to feel happy, cared for and secure whilst learning and developing. Babies and children develop in individual ways and at varying rates, I believe that all children are entitled to enjoy a full life in a loving nurturing environment enabling them to develop as individuals, take part in society and grow up as nurturing adults.
I am Ofsted registered, CRB checked and have completed a 2-day Paediatric First Aid, Level 3 NVQ in childcare and various other childcare courses to enhance the care I provide. My last inspection was November 2016 and I was graded Good. I have references available from both previous families and families with children currently in my care.
With 2 of my own children and experience of babysitting for friends since I was in my teens, I feel I have a wealth of knowledge in order to create a 'home from home' setting in which to care for children in a stimulating and caring environment.
I enjoy interacting with children of all ages and helping them progress and develop through learning and play.
I am energetic, organised, reliable, responsible and fun! I always look to enhance my skills to enable children to develop to the best of their ability through quality childcare and supporting each child's individual needs.
I have completed Surrey County Councils Childminding Introduction Programme (ChIP) which includes how to implement and meet the requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage as set out in the Childcare Act 2006.
I have also completed a 2-day Paediatric First Aid course, in addition to a Safeguarding Children Course both of which are renewed every three years.
In 2016 I completed my Level 3 NVQ in Childcare.
Certificate in Food Hygiene Summer 2011
Various other childcare courses to enhance the care I provide including Communication & Language

Below are the latest reviews for Duckling. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk.

My Daughter was at Ducklings for 3 years, she had no problem settling and she loved it from day one! Both myself and my daughter had a brilliant relationship with Nicola she was always very helpful and kind. My daughter is so sad to leave to go to school if she could she would stay with Nicola.
My 5 year old absolutely loves going to Duckings. Nicola has been absolutely superb. I receive a daily diary every day so I know all about what food he has had and the fun activities which seem endless! I fully trust her with my son and have complete peace of mind whilst I'm at work that my son is safe and happy. I would not hesitate to recommend her.
My three year old daughter went to Duckling for a year and half, we were very pleased with the child care provided. From the first day we felt relaxed and happy knowing our daughter was happy and safe in a very caring home. They keep you updated on how your child is settling in and throughout the duration you are updated. They always do fun activities linked with the seasons and festivals and often go out to the park, Brooklands museum, Virgina water lake, Wisley Gardens, swimming and much more. When I had my second child Nicola was very good at looking after our daughter for extra sessions eg early in the morning and after 6pm. The cost is reasonable and I would highly recommend Ducklings.
