We also have a very friendly cat called Mylo.

I have been Ofsted inspected and have been given a grading of "good" for my setting.

Before I had my children and trained as a childminder I was a chef for many years and still enjoy cooking healthy yummy meals for my family.

I enjoy exercise and love going for long walks by the sea and spending lots of time outdoors.

I decided to make a career change after the birth of my daughter and I embarked on a Home-based Childcare Course and a Paediatric First Aid Course.

My daughter (20 months old) has been with Vikki for just over three months now, we're sadly having to leave her as we are moving away from the area. Being a lockdown baby has made it more challenging for Emmy but Vikki has been brilliant, she is really patient and always makes you feel reassured, updating you with a picture or two throughout the day to let you know what they've been up to. They go on all sorts of outings which Emmy has loved, particularly the zoo! It's a lovely welcoming and homely environment with loads of activities and toys for the children. We are so sad to be leaving Vikki and would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for childcare locally.

I would recommend Vikki to anyone looking for childcare. My son loves going to her and is well looked after, happy and safe. They get out daily, rain or shine, and do lots of amazing trips and creative activities.

As a first time mum sending my daughter to a childminder Vikki really put me at ease. Explained everything in detail as I hadn't heard of the EYFS system that she followed and I was pretty clueless to be honest. I felt confident leaving my little girl in vikki's care she's a lovely lady and she has a really relaxed environment at her home. I especially loved to get a photo or two of my little girl having fun doing various things while I was away from her. It really reassured me.

My son loves Vikki! At the moment he is learning his first words, and I can say that it was with contact with this childminder I saw develop various skills. Super fun, always with different activities! Loved her work and highly recommend. Very responsible, positive, helpful and fun!

Vikki looked after my daughter full time for several months. She was always very happy and excited to go and play at Vikki's. Vikki organised lots of trips amd activities and completed her learning journey and journal so that I was able to see my daughter's progress. She provided her with healthy snacks and meals when required. I noticed that my daughter's speech improved whilst she was with Vikki and I would be very happy for Vikki to look after my daughter again in the future.
