We found Nicola on here when we were looking for overnight care so we could have some quality time as a couple as well as a family. Nicola made us feel very comfortable and kept us up to date during the first night we left our daughter overnight with photos and messages. Nicola provided a hot meal, bathed and managed to settle Amber down very easily considering we have not left her with anyone before due to no family close by. we have also taken the advantage of weekend care with Nicola which gave us the opportunity for a weekend away for the first time in 2 years. Nicola provides all fresh meals, lots of fun activities and the knowledge your child is in a safe, nurturing loving environment. we can not thank Nicola enough and would recommend Nicola to anyone.

I really struggled with the thought of going back to work after having my first daughter McKenna. But the moment I met Nicola I felt so relaxed and confident i was doing the right thing. Nicola is very caring and passionate about the children and her work. it is clear their happiness and well being is the most important thing. Nicola has a very loving home with a large variety of toys and equipment to keep them entertained. The sleeproom just for the childminding children is something I had not seen on any other visits and the garden is a lovely safe area with lots to keep them busy. Nicola looked after McKenna for just over a year until I went on maternity leave and I can not thank her enough for the love and care she provided. I highly recommend Nicola if you are looking for childcare 5* from me xx

I was recommended by a friend who had a child already with a mr and mrs childminders she said they had a vacancy coming up and she could not sing their praises high enough.
After my first meeting i felt so happy and confident i had found the best place for Rosie to be when i could not have her and Rosie started the following month. Rosie has grown from a 4 month old baby into a happy confident and sociable little girl. Nicola and Steven are amazing with the children they are like a big happy family and most days Rosie did not want to come home! if any one is looking for a home from home environment where they can rest assure their child will get the time,love and attention they need i highly recommend you contact Mr and Mrs Childminders.
