About Me

I am Niki Emmerson, an Ofsted registered childminder living near Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge. I live with my husband and son aged 23. I have 2 dog's (who have no contact with the children), 2 cat’s and 3 rabbit's. I provide a friendly atmosphere where children can experience fun and learning through many different forms of play.
I have a enclosed garden with AstroTurf and lots of outdoor equipment and ride-on's.

My Experience

Not only have I had experience of raising my own 2 boy's, but I also worked for 6 years in a primary school . I was a lunch-time assistant working with the reception class and helping the children to settle in during the hard transition to full-time school.
During my 2 years at college I had varied work experience placements in nursery schools, children's hospice, schools for children with special needs, playgroups and primary schools and during the summer holidays was a nanny for 4 children.
I am also registered with the council to provide respite care.
I accept childcare vouchers.

Having known Nikki for many years it was a very easy decision to send my then 8 month old daughter to spend my working hours at Nikki's, knowing that Nikki would do a brilliant job with our little girl so well. My daughter loved going and made new friends with the children who already attended. Nikki was very flexible around mine and my husbands working hours. She has lots of different toys and activities for the children to keep them busy and a designated play area for the children outside. I personally loved the crafts that was sent home.
Nikki is a very caring and understanding lady, i would 100% recommend sending your children. Knowing that they will be having a grand time while learning, having fun and being cared for to a top standard.
Was a shame we moved as I would have sent my son too when I returned to work after maternity leave.
I can't thank Nikki enough for the great service.

Very good with babies and following their routines. She uses her instinct when it comes to kids and deals with issues accordingly (e.g when they are not themselves (teething)). Gives kids lots of cuddles and reassurance. Very good at teaching babies to talk and be polite. When it comes to doing things for the kids nothing is too much for this childminder. Very good at settling babies/toddlers that are finding it hard to be away from parents for whatever reason. Both of my children suffer/suffered with silent reflux and childminder is comfortable to give medication and deal with babies when they are in pain. I have known this childminder for 2 years now and she truly is amazing! She looked after my 2 year old daughter (for a couple of days and 1 night) when I was having my son so that is how much I trust her and feel reassured that my daughter would be taken care of and be happy. Childminders family are also lovely and my daughter likes them all including the animals. My baby son (9 months) has just started going there too and he loves it!
