My daughter settled in immediately, she has really enjoyed herself the last 8 months and is sad to leave, she comes home talking about her walks to school and she really has become so independent the past months which is all thanks to this wonderful setting.
Thank you for everything x

It has been my absolute pleasure , you have a wonderful , polite , happy daughter. I wish her every happiness at her new school .
Our loss will be another childminders gain , the other children will really miss her .
Hope you find somebody soon x x x

Our Daughter has been with Nicky for the last three years, right from the age of six months. During this time I cannot understate the amount of love, care and attention Nicky and her family have dedicated to our little girl. She has been treated as part of the family and we have never once had to worry about our Daughter, as it has always been clear that she is being well looked after and enjoying every moment . Nicky has always been reliable and it is clear to anyone that their home is a very happy one and an ideal place for your child to be cared for.
All of the children enjoy the varied days they all have together, with plenty of trips out and a constant variety of other activities. In the case of our Daughter, this has been great for her to learn and develop as well as becoming used to being around other children. Nicky has kept us informed with a daily diary and also numerous drawings, pictures and even scrapbooks of special moments.
Nicky’s home is a brilliant place for children, clean and safe with a great play room and large garden which all of the kids love to play in – particularly in the paddling pool when the suns out!
We cannot thank Nicky, Paul, Joe and Issy enough for everything they have done - we genuinely believe that we could not have asked for more. Our little girl has come on leaps and bounds in the last three years and we put a huge amount of this down to the time she has spent at Nicky’s. If you are looking for a trustworthy, friendly, reliable Childminder who will give them as much love and attention as you would yourself, then look no further.

Still crying now
Thank you for a lovely reference but the pleasure has been all mine.
You are a wonderful family and im going to miss you all.
(Well I won't because I know we will stay in touch)
New beginnings for your wonderful daughter and she is so ready to go and enjoy nursery.

I have been using Nicola for a couple of months now and what a fantastic childminder she is!
My daughter loves to go to Nicola's, she has made several friends there and also loves Nicola's children.
There is lots of back garden space with lots of activities for the children to do, I often have trouble getting my daughter to come home with me, she just loves playing in the garden!
Nicola often takes the children to playgroups, library and trips, it is great to see the children getting out and about.
Her family have always made my daughter and I very welcome, they are a great family unit.
Couldn't wish for better, highly recommended.

Aah Claire I've only just read this review - thank you so much.
You know how much we enjoyed having your daughter and she is welcome back when you get sorted.
Love my hugs on the playground from her when I see her after school

I have been using this childminder for approx 2 years+, my little girl loves going here. My little girl does have some special physical needs, and although Nicky is not registered for disaabled children, she has more then fulfilled every expectation and I can go to work feeling happy in the knowledge that my little girl is safe and well cared for. Nicky has two beautiful children with whom my daughter enjoys playing with. The environment is warm and homely and Nicky is always ready with a smile and warm welcome to both parents and children alike. The holidays are always planned with lots of exciting activities for the children to do and there is always a 'special outing' at least once during the big summer holidays, a day which all the children look forward to. Nicky utilises all the local amenities available such as libraries and child centres which gives the children a chance to mix with others and enjoy themselves whilst learning.
I would highly recommend this wonderful lady, who provides a safe, happy and warm family environment.

Lou , thank you so much.

Your lovely little girl may have some extra physical needs but she never lets anything hold her back and is happy to have a go at anything and with my help we manage most things - i love that about her.

She is loving , funny and very intelligent and fits in so well here with all the other children.

Lots of love x x x

I returned to work when my son was 9 months old. I was very nervous about leaving my son with anyone as im sure all first time parent are! Nicky immediatley made me feel at ease and i felt like Nickys house was a home from home. Matthew had breakfast, lunch and dinner with Nicky and he was made to feel like part of the Cramp family, with set routines of play groups, meal times and Nicky also took him to swimming lessons. Nicky was flexible with her working hours and always tried to accomodate any early starts and late finishes when i have been stuck in traffic. I would recommend Nicky to anyone who asks as i really feel she treats her childminded children the same as her own. I recieved numberous drawings etc every week and Nicky also completed a scrap book including photos of special moments i had missed. Matthew is now 4 and starting school in September and I truly believe that i could not have found a better childminder for Matthew to spend the past three years with and would highly recommend Nicky to all parents looking for a friendly, loving home for their child whilst at work....
