About Me

Hello, I'm Nicola

I've worked in childcare since obtaining my NNEB (childcare level 3) certificate in 1996. So for over 25 years I've been working as a daily nanny looking after children/families in their own homes. I hung up my nannying reins after the birth of my second child. Now I'm an Ofsted registered Childminder.

I live in Addlestone (bordering Weybridge) with my husband and two children who were born in 2014 and 2016 and our dog. From Sept 2020 both my children will be in school in Weybridge.

Our road is lovely and quiet with some great neighbours.
We have just finished extending our house giving me a wonderful open playroom that leads onto our large secure garden.

I have filled all spaces.

My Experience

Since 1996 I have nannied for eight families.
Those families consisted of between one and four children, that I had sole charge/care off between the hours of 7am - 7pm.
The ages of the children ranged from birth to 10 years old.
Throughout working with these families I have experienced caring for children with varying special need and dietary requirements. Such as, a child needing hearing aids due to severe glue ear, eczema, ADHD, Dyslexia, severe multi nut and egg allergies requiring Epi-Pens, Coeliacs disease and dairy free diets.
I've had to work very closely with the parents in following strick routines and procedures to help the children in my care.

I have written references from my previous nanny employers that id be happy to share with you and i know i have some reviews on here from current/previous familes.

I started my childminding business in 2018 and have loved the children and their families i have cared for.
I gained a grading of GOOD in my first Ofsted inspection in October of 2021.

I am always up to date with my training, be if safeguarding children and their families and my first aid. I enjoy keeping up to date and expanding my knowledge where possible.

Our little boy has been with Nicola for 2 years and we couldn’t wish for better childcare.
He visits so many nice places and does lots of different activities each week, he loves it. We love receiving updates from Nicola with pictures of their day.
When he is at Nicolas I think he feels like part of their family.
His speech and counting is really good for his age which is a testament to Nicola.

My little girl (20 months) absolutely loves going to Nicola's house.They have so much fun every day!

She is fab in so many respects, but some particular favourites of ours include: the tonnes of themed activities that she puts together based on the children's interests; the range of exciting and well-thought-out arts and crafts that she organises; and her amazingly well-kitted-out garden.

I look forward to the daily photo updates that Nicola sends. Not only do these brighten my day, but they really help me to talk to Hollie about what she's been up to when I collect her, which she absolutely loves.

Both cognitively and socially, Hollie has developed so much since being in Nicola's care, and I am so pleased we found her - I'd highly recommend her as a childminder.

Nicola is an outstanding childminder, who I would 100% recommend. My 17 month daughter absolutely loves going and is always very happy to be dropped off.
My partner and I have been so impressed with how much she has developed since attending; her confidence has grown so much!
Nicola communicates through the day with updates of naps, food and activities, which is great for us to see while at work.
Overall, a really great childminder!
