My Son has been minded by Nicole for the past 2years, since he was 17 month old.
Initially, I was a little nervous with leaving him with someone as he had always only been with me. All those hesitations vanished once a met with Nicole.
She is genuinely the nicest person, extremely attentive to my sons needs. Sweet, nurturing, welcoming and so approachable. My son has absolutely loved being in her care and I can honestly say that I couldn't fault her on anything or ask for anything more.
Her home is warm and inviting, with lots to do for the kids. She regularly takes her minded children out to groups, parks and places they enjoy.
She has a beautiful family, who my son also loves.
I feel extremely lucky to have found her and have told her so previously.

I’d been on maternity leave for 15 months and had never left our son with a stranger so was especially nervous about finding a childminder. Nicole invited us to her house and we had further getting to know each other sessions in the park and at her home again, the final times leaving our son alone. Our son adapted so quickly, I went back full time right away and it was as though he settled in overnight.

Nicole has always been very professional and friendly. Our son has always looked forward to spending the day with her, smiling when she collects him or he’s dropped off. She is never short of ideas, taking the kids to parks, soft play centres, play groups, animal centres, country estates, exhibitions, markets, swimming pools, town centres, Central London and cafes to name a few of the places she has mentioned they went to.

Nicole has always ensured our son is happy and has followed his needs, tailoring the day’s activities accordingly. She also ensures a high level of hygiene and cleanliness, sends photos and gives us a daily report. She ensures he has a varied and nutritious lunch and has followed our request to offer him halal food when available.

Nicole has always demonstrated extremely high levels of flexibility. In fact she was the only childminder flexible enough to accommodate our working patterns and when given enough notice she has been more than happy to keep my son for longer hours. Her family are all friendly and have become friends with our son. She has recently undertaken great upgrades in her house for her childminding services creating more child friendly space and has a lovely garden.

Please do not hesitate to consider Nicole. If we were Ofsted we would rate her outstanding and so would our son! Nicole, keep up your energy, enthusiasm and the great work!!! We are blessed to have found you and you were the perfect match for our son and have added so much to his development and so much joy to his life. You made it so easy for us to both work full time with peace of mind our son is in good hands.

My son was with Nicole between the ages of 3 and 4. She provided him with a loving, warm and fun home-away-from-home environment. He was always happy to be dropped off and came home telling stories of parks, farm trips and cake baking. I’d definitely recommend Nicole!

Nicole made me feel really at ease with leaving my son with her. Shes caring and has a really gentle approach with children. She is also calm and my son settled very quickly with her in her home. Would highly recommend her to anyone who needs childcare.
