I’ve known Nicky for over 6 years now
I first met Nicky in 2013 when I needed childcare for my 10 week old son. I knew as soon as I walked in her home i knew that she was by far better than the others I’d seen

I have 4 children that all come to Nicky and all love coming to Nicky. My 2 older children are now full time at school but still come to Nicky in holidays

Her home is lovely and clean there is plenty of space and good toys for the children inside and lots of outside toys as well

I couldn’t wish to have a better childminder

Thank you for your kind words

My son joined Nicky when he was only 10 months old, he has been with Nicky for over 6 years and with great sadness he has just finished due to my work commitments changing. My son had his last day with Nicky today and he was so sad to leave as he has become very attached to her.

Nicky has a really lovely manner with all the children in her care, she is always kind, calm and patient with them and all the children including my son are happy and well behaved and know whats expected of them. Nicky's facilities are excellent her home is very welcoming to both children and parents, her setting is exactly what i was looking for when i chose Nicky's, the play area, the table where arts and crafts are completed, and the garden is great. Its like home from home.

I was reassured with my choice when my son settled so quickly and was very happy there and really loved Nicky.

Nicky's toy and facilities are fantastic in that children dont play with just gender stereotype toys, my son's progress since joining Nicky's has been fantastic.

I feel i have been very lucky to have found Nicky i have had 6 years of unparalled childcare, a home from home setting has benefited my son enormously in terms of his developments, i cannot thank Nicky enough.

Nicky is very committed, professional and always gives the children her full attention, at the same time shes able to talk easily to parents and give help and advice where needed.

The cleanliness at Nicky's is outstanding, i remember going to some providers and was appalled at the cleanliness which was another big tick for me.

Thank you for such a lovely review. Xxx

Nicky is a fantastic child minder, she is brilliant with the children she has in her care and my daughter has developed massively since joining with Nicky. She is easy to get along with and is very down to earth. My daughter settled in straight away and loves going to nickys. Highly recommend her to anyone seeking a childminder. The children are well looked after and are 100% safe within her care. Always had piece of mind from day one of my daughter being with Nicky. Any child attending nickys services are very lucky and you will see a great development in your child with learning, speech, manners etc. Xx

My Daughter went to nickys for several years and she realy enjoyed it. she came home more or less every day with things she had made i.e crafts, paintings. Nicky took the children out on trips. I would highly recommend Nicky as a childminder i always felt that my daughter was safe and well looked after which gave me great peace of mind.x
