About Me

Hi

I have lived in Lyneham for 14 years and have 3 children who are 31, 28 and 22 Which has given me a whole world of experience. I have been childminding since 2004 and have passed my NVQ 3 amongst another lot of qualifications ie, food hygiene, health and safety, child development, first aid.

I had my inspection in 2019 and scored a good, which I was very happy with.

I am patient and understanding with the children, we have a lot of fun together, everyday is a new experience with them!!

We have a cats called Pig, Monkey, Panda bear.

Also I am an accredited childminder, which means I take the 15/30 hours funded childcare from the age of 3.

I am on good terms with the local childminders and will be able to recommend another childminder, if I am unable to help.

My Experience

I have had a variety of ages during my last 14 years.

I used to be a live in nanny for 2 years before I decided to have children of my own, so have been looking after children from about the age of 17.

We do a variety of activities in the house and garden, including, art, story's, free play, structured play, circle time, music, water and sand play, going to the park, local activities within the school and local amenities, trips out to the Zoo and mixing with other childminders and their children, so there is always lots to do.

We also have quiet time if needed for the younger children.

My 2 boys had been with Nikki for over 6 years and the only reason they are not in her setting anymore is due to having to relocate.
Nikki is fabulous and I will always be grateful for her full support and guidance through different stages of my children’s life while in her care.
Nikki also made accommodations for my youngest son who is dairy intolerant in the form of snacks, milk etc. Nikki was also extremely helpful in that area with advice & recipes she had seen or found online.
I also found during the time my children were with Nikki the daily diary extremely helpful with regards to communication between us and not just about what the children had being doing that day..
We unfortunately had to leave Nikki 6 months ago and my children still talk about her fondly and the other children in her setting... I will always, wholeheartedly, recommend Nikki to anyone who is requiring childcare.

Thank you Guys, It was definitely a sad day when you all left x

Nikki has been childminding our 22 month daughter for the past 8 months. My daughter settled very quickly and was made to feel part of the family. Nikki is very reliable, flexible and extremely supportive. She often takes the children on outings to the park, to feed the ducks, library, zoo etc... Nikki provides structured learning activities and always encourages the children to have lots of fun! She has supported our family through the uncertain times that come with my husband being in the armed forces and has always being extremely understanding. Nikki provides a safe, secure and loving home environment and I would highly recommend her to any parent.
