About Me

My name is Nicola Maynard.

I am a fully qualified Nursery nurse and Ofsted registered childminder.

Based within the CV6 postcode on the North side of Coventry in the Bell green, Courthouse green area.

I have always been passionate about children.

Our home has been renovated to include a playroom solely for the children to access both fun and educational resources. I can provide a safe and child friendly rear garden which boasts among other things, a playhouse, mud kitchen, tractor tyre sandpit and our friendly pet rabbit " Oreo "

I promote a natural environment for the childern to learn and play in. Our days will be spent between both indoor and outdoor fun, with regular visits to stay n play sessions, soft play areas, farms, parks,museums etc..

Nickys little owls is a place where children can feel safe, and they will grow and learn in a loving, stimulating, home from home environment.

My Daughter started September 2019 and settled in great, was so worried as the childminder I use to have for my son didnt have spaces available. Soon as I met Nicky I knew she was perfect too look after my daughter who was just 1 at the time. Nicky has a lovely homely spacious home with all the kids needs catered for a lovely back garden and play room.
Theres always lots of learning messy play and fun for my daughter she loves going. Highly recommend Nicky to anyone looking for childcare for there children.
