My eldest son was with nicola from 1 yr until he started preschool. Nicola is warm, caring and professional, tristan loved going to her house. She takes them out to local playgroup and on outings to places such as godstone farm. My youngest is going to her in september at 9 months. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
As young working parents we are very happy with Nicola's service. Nicola has a very nice setting and takes great care of our little one, always making sure he is entertained (both at her home and on short trips out) and well cared for in every way. Our little one loves her cooking and Nicola is just such a pleasure to deal with and well organised in all her dealings. We would recommend her very highly.
