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

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.
