'Nona's Nest Childminding'

Hello, my name is Fiona and I run 'Nona's Nest' Childminding in Guildford.

I am DBS checked , first aid trained and have undertaken a course for childminding and safeguarding. I have also been an Ofsted Registered Nanny for over 12 years, and in childcare employment since leaving school.

A little bit about me. I live with my husband Kieran (DBS Checked) in Bellfields, Guildford. We have been married since 2014. We have two sons born April 2016 and August 2019.

In the week we enjoy visiting play groups, parks, softplays and other activities around the local area and further afield, but also providing a home from home environment. I have membership for Wisley, National Trust and Merlin attractions so we love adventures!

All snacks and meals are included in the hourly rate.

I received a GOOD grading in my latest Ofsted Inspection (March 2022)

We love Fiona, she is so bubbly and caring. We started when Ethan was only 6 month old and after the first week we felt really comfortable and safe to leave Ethan with her, she have made him from crying every time when we drop him off to cuddling her after few weeks. Ethan is always so happy when we picked him up and seems like he have had an amazing day. The most important thing is that he is a messing baby when feeding, but he was always so clean and tidy when we picked him up. Never had nappy rash too which we know how common it is with baby at this age. Ethan is with her 2 days a week and every time she plans something interesting for the day, lots of activities and definitely much more fun being home with me.

Fiona has really taken care of my little boy like her own and we feel so sad that now he is going to nursery. We would definitely recommended Fiona to all the moms and knowingly that your child will be in safe hands.

We are so lucky to have found Fiona. Currently she is looking after both my children twice a week who absolutely adore her. My youngest, aged 1, had never left my side even for a few hours before I had to go back to work but Fiona welcomed her into her home and she is so happy there - after a few visits no tears at the door just handed over and waved off. She does amazing daily activities to fit a weekly theme - which is very popular with my pre-schooler, they both love playing in the garden and really enjoy all the lovely food she makes for them. We would recommend Fiona highly, her years of experience really shine through.

Fiona has been looking after my son for a while now and I have alot to thank her for. She has welcomed him into her home and made him so at ease from the start. He was 2 months early and was a little behind when he started with her but now he is thriving. Her food menus are amazing and very healthy. He spends his days playing, learning and having so much fun. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

My child has been attending Nonas Nest since Fiona opened her doors after maternity leave. He is always participating in lovely activities to enhance his development and enjoys the company of the other children. I feel very lucky to have found Fiona 🤩🤩🤩
