Amazing childminder, do not think twice!

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.
