About Me


I am a fun, friendly and enthusiastic childminder who understands that leaving your child is one of the hardest things to do... 

I also understand that each child is unique and in order to grow and learn there needs to be a safe fun area to play!

I have a spacious house with a dedicated play room with many resources for a variety of ages and abilities.

A large secure, enclosed garden with vegetable plot, a sand pit, a water table, playhouse, mud kitchen and many other garden toys. I will provide many opportunities to play and learn from the world around us.

I love going on adventures with children and make good use of the local areas and facilities.

We have membership to The National Trust, The English Heritage, Jimmy's Farm and Marsh Farm.

I have a clear, enhanced DBS check which I update yearly.

As an ofsted registered childminder I follow the Early Years Framework.

Development through the seven areas of learning is encouraged using child led play and explorations.

"Play is the highest form of research" - Albert Einstein

Nicole has looked after my daughter since she was around 6 months old (she's now 2)! Everything is fantastic. My daughter has made a strong bond with the whole family and loves going everyday! It truely is home from home.

The care is second to none. The updates throughout each day make going to work a little easy. Nicole teaches my daughter on a daily basis and always comes home knowing something new!

I would highly recommend Nicole, the setting is second to none and there is always something for the children to learn/ play with - a full on day.

Nicole has been fabulous with my daughter, she has learned so much from Nicole. I know that she is well cared for, safe and most of all having fun. My daughter loved going to Nicoles house and made a great friend with her daughter.
I would highly recommend Nicole.
