I can not tell you how anxious I was leaving my child for the first time but I should never have worried, he was is the safest of hands with Nikki and Ash.
Because of lockdown and the lack of socialization my son struggled with settling in but they were so patient with him and now he walks in himself without looking back at me.

A very relaxed couple and nothing is any bother.
I love that it is a home from home environment and you can genuinely feel that they care for your child. My son Rory has developed lots of skills and independence from being at the setting.

Updates and pictures throughout the day, especially at the start, are greatly appreciated.


Thanks Nikki and Ash, we are forever thankful.

Theo first started going to Nikki and Ash when he was 5 months old, work commitments meant I needed to leave him earlier than I wanted to but he settled in straight away and we have never looked back. He is now 20 months old and every time I drop him off, he is more than happy to go in and leave me behind! That to me is everything I could have wanted, after all; a happy baby is a happy parent!
Being an only child, I love the fact Theo gets to interact with other children but in a homely environment. The crafts, baking and days out are all things I wanted him to be doing. We are not a stay indoors family so it was important for me to find someone that would take Theo out and be active with him. He is also lactose intolerant, nothing has ever been too much trouble to provide him with nutritious, home cooked food.
Its just so heartwarming to see how happy he is here and I have never had a day of regret for leaving my child with Nikki and Ash.

Nikki has looked after my two children (8 & 6 years) for the last 5½ years and over those years the kids have made so many memories... As a full time working mum there is allot of mummy guilt, but the pictures & updates I get sent when there out and about or crafting just makes the guilt feel slightly less because I know they are in safe hands and having huge amounts of fun. The days out over half terms are always a highlight but the kids are also content with doing fun crafts, baking, playing out door games or going exploring in the woods! No matter what the age of the child they all play so nicely together...
When choosing a childcare provider I knew I wanted the kids to be in a homely setting, Nikki & Ash certainly deliver on this and always go above and beyond for which I am very grateful for.
Following a recent parents evening with my youngest's class teacher, she also commented on how both Nikki & Ash treat there child-minded children like their own and how happy my youngest looks at drop off and pick up... "Money well spent" was the teachers closing statement.
I can not recommend Nikki & Ash enough....

My wife and I are ever so delighted and grateful for Nikki and Ash for taking such splendid care of our son. Their setting is lovely, clean, friendly, fun, flexible, and trustable. We have been kept informed about the progress and how the day is running. Our son is progressing and developing very well in the setting. Honestly, we could not have been any more fortunate and relax-minded as we are now that we know how our son is receiving the utmost care.

I recommend it, unreservedly, to anyone looking for a perfect childcare setting.

Thank you for all your care and kindness, absolutely impressive!!
