About Me

I have loved childminding for five years now, seeing and supporting the children I care for grow and develop. I have lived with my husband and twin boys (now young adults) on Stukeley Meadows since March 2000. As well as my background in education, I was a governor for the local primary school for 7 years and am now the Chairperson for the local pre-school. I am an extremely organised person and work in partnership with parents in order to help children learn and flourish in their own unique way. I was rated ‘outstanding’ at my first Ofsted inspection in October 2018.

My Experience

My background is in education - I was a secondary school teacher of French and German and Head of Year 7 for 10 years before having twin boys. I then continued in the world of education at a younger level - becoming involved with the local pre-school as a parent helper and committee member and being a Tumble Tots leader for 4 years. Once my children started school, I qualified as a pre-school assistant and worked at the local pre-school, as well as teaching English to Japanese students in Cambridge.

My Qualifications

BA(Hons) in French and German; PGCE (Secondary); Level 3 Diploma for the Children and Young People's Workforce; Paediatric First Aid; Level 2 Food Safety and Hygiene

My Availability

Best to contact me direct. As well as looking after younger babies/children during the day, I can do pre-school and primary school drop-offs and pick-ups for Little Acorns Pre-School and Stukeley Meadows Primary School.

The thought of hiring a childminder for my daughter was quite daunting for my wife and I. Nicola has made this a positive experience. We live on the same estate which is very handy. The attention to detail and the professiolism provided, I feel is is excellent. We met her family and saw her home before we made a decsion and after that it was a no brainer really. I am pleased to say that my daughter is in the best hands when with Nicola. I look forward to reading the daily diary at the end of the day. Nicola tracks progress from mobility to general life skills like listening and hand eye coordination. We also receive a scrap book updated with adorable pics of our likkle pickle. Happy Dad.
