About Me

My name is Nelly Eluwa , I have recently been inspected by OFSTED with rating as “GOOD”.
I have a natural aura that endears children to me and I understand how Parents wish to have a motherly care provided for their little ones whilst at work because i have been in a similar situation . For this reason , i look after children with a motherly touch ,updating parents with their child's 'wao' moments during our day. I also love listening to, encouraging, enabling, engaging and motivating children to learn. I have an 11 year old son who loves babies & also loves to teach the children how to colour too.

My Experience

I have a wealth of knowledge from successfully organised summer camps for children age 1-13.

I have worked as a backup childminder too.

I have also worked in a Nursery with an OFSTED inspection as outstanding

I speak English & French & Igbo

I was a little nervous of how my then 18 months old daughter would settle with a childminder in a new environment as we just relocated to Dartford. We spoke to a few childminders in the neighbourhood before signing up. After we met Nelly, my little girl made the decision herself, she was drawn to Nelly from the very first day.
The very clean environment and nursery setup made it quiet easy for us to decide as well. A decision we are very happy with.

She has learnt a lot in the last 7-8 months and there has been very noticeable improvement in her development. Nelly sends videos and pictures to track her learning and activities.

My daughter loves and enjoys her day so much, especially the outdoor activities, sometimes she doesn't want to leave. I can also drop off my daughter and go to work with a peace of mind that she would be well looked after.

Nell Cuddies tot is highly recommended

My two children started with Nelly 2 months ago. I was very anxious about leaving my children but Nelly has made the transition easier by first introducing settling in days for my children which they both enjoyed. Throughout the day I would get pictures of my children and communicate what they are up to which put my mind at ease. Nelly has a diary of each child which you take home which shows you the develop your child is making. I would highly recommend her. Nelly is extremely flexible which fits in with my shift work pattern.
My son & daughter settled in from the start. My son has developed a lot since he has been with Nelly. I have notice a big development in his communication. Nelly educates the children while they are having fun learning. My children enjoy trips out with Nelly such as going to the park. My children are always clean and happy at the end of the day. Nelly's home is always clean and very welcoming.

Nelly has been looking after my Triciea now for 11 months, and I would highly recommend her. Nelly is extremely flexible which fits in with my work. My daughter used to go to a nursery before and I would dropped her off crying and picked her up crying and it used to break my heart. When I found Nelly it’s like God send her to us.
My daughter settled in from the start and is now a confident and happy 3 years old child. She has developed a lot since she’s been with Nelly, the care and attention she gives to these kids are fantastic. Nelly and Triciea has formed a close bond. Nelly is trustworthy, considerate and overall fantastic with kids, she educates children while they are having fun learning. I could go on and on all day but for anyone looking for a childminder I would recommend Nelly cuddly totts to you. The house is always clean and you will never picked up your child and they are dirty and looking scruffy, they are always clean and happy.

My son has been going to Nells Cuddly Totts for well over 6 months now and Nelly is a amazing childminder. My son goes with her in the week whilst I am at work and has also had overnight stays. My son loves going there and sometimes doesnt want to leave with me when I go to pick him up. Nelly has taught my 2 year old son lots of new things such as taking off and putting on shoes, drinking from a normal cup as opposed to a bottle, sitting and staying around the table for lunch and much more. He has made lot's of new friends with her and i am always confident and happy to leave him with her. Nelly is also quite flexible to meet your demands if you have a busy schedule :-)

Nelly provides excellent care to my 1 year old daughter who she has cared for, for approximately 8 months now. My daughter thrives in her care and has formed a close bond to both her and her son. I am particularly impressed with the fact that Nelly engages well with all of the children in her care and exposes them to various stimulating activities tailored to their needs. Nelly is also very flexible and has been able to support my son (aged 4) when he is not at school. Her property is clean and child friendly, with various toys for different children. I would highly recommend her.
