About Me

My Name is Nicola, my husband Dave. We have five grown up daughter between us.

Firstly, we call our house The Mad House and we love it.
I provide a safe, secure, home from home environment for your child to feel happy in. Each child in my care will be treated as an individual and I encourage confidence in children. I have a large secure garden and encourage outdoor play in all weathers.
I will take children on outings in the school holidays and do lots of activities in the home, e.g baking, creative, music, games, small world play, mini beast learning, sand play, mud play and many more things. We even grow fruit and vegetables. Very wonky carrotts! Not mastered that one yet. I also take children to local toddler groups so they can have interaction with children. Great for 'Personal, social and emotional wellbeing, which a lot of children lost during Covid.

As a member of the PACEY I have a no smacking policy and no smoking policy. I also have public liability and employees insurance through PACEY.
I hold a clean driving licence. I have relevant business insurance on my 7 seater car, which is fully taxed and tested + I have a full service done every year.

I have helped run a toddler group for 22 years now (that makes me feel old!)
