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 ‘home for home’ 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 son’s development and wellbeing benefits greatly from this. She has a flexible approach and reliably provides feedback about my son’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.
