I live in Banbury with my partner Andy. We have two little girls, aged 7 and 8. I am a qualified Nursery Nurse, and Ofsted registered childminder. I have a pediatric first aid certificate and a good knowledge of allergies due to my own children having multiple allergies (now outgrown) and additional needs.
I also have a full clean drivers licence . My car is fitted with appropriate car seats. I have vacancies from 8-6 However i understand that juggling childcare and work can be difficult so these hours are flexible
I am based in Cherwell Heights,Banbury and happy to do school/nursery drop offs/collections, in and around Banbury.
A typical day would be a structured activity in the morning, either one of the many toddler groups or music groups. Back for lunch, then sleep time for those that need it.Free play ( or outdoor play, chalking , drawing or arts in the garden if it is nice weather ) in the afternoon.Snack, play, school pick up in the afternoon if needed , or a walk to the park.Dinner around 4:30 /5:00 for those that need it. This can either be brought by yourself or provided for additional cost. Healthy snacks will be offered throughout the day. ( fruit, breadsticks, yoghurt etc ).
I understand that as parents you want to be involved in all aspects of your child's care, so throughout the day, i will keep a diary of your child's day.
I was a nanny for 15 yrs, starting off by going to France at 17 to nanny for 2 girls 10 months and 11 years.,Where i got great experience and was able to learn the language..After returning back to the Uk, I left Yorkshire to move to Oxford (as the family i was working for at the time were relocating to Oxford) and have been here since i have nannied for children aged from 1 day to 11 yrs. and done both proxy parent and shared care.

Nikki has been amazing since the moment we met her and she got down on the floor to play with the kids. She initially looked after my 3yo daughter for 6 months before she officially started preschool in September and now looks after my 1yo son. Both of my kids absolutely adore Nikki as do we! She is calm, caring and firm but fun. She goes above and beyond to help where she can and I don’t know what we’d do without her! She’s a brilliant childminder and there’s no one I could trust more with my kids. She’s become a firm part of our funny family and we thing she’s amazing!
Nikki started looking after our two girls in November. I am so pleased to have found her. She plans so many activities for them, based around their individual interests, and they love their time with her. She really helped the girls to settle in and is very relaxed and patient. She is flexible, reliable, professional and very good at communicating with me and with my children. I am very happy to recommend her.
Nikki's currently looking after my 5 months old son. The first time she had him I was extremely anxious about my little boy being looked after by someone else than me or his daddy, but Nikki turned it into a lovely, as stress-free as possible experience. Every day she's sending me pictures of what they're doing and sends me updates of how their day is going, so even though my son's with her I'm included in everything they do. Nikki works with me on maintaining our breastfeeding routine too, which is very important to me and even though it's a hassle for her to convince my son to take a bottle, she never complaines! If anything, she's being very inventive at encouraging him and making sure he's comfortable and happy.
Another thing I love is that she does lots of crafty-arty things with him, which leaves us with beautiful souvenirs.
She's very flexible and professional. We've never had any problems and have always been encouraged to let her know if we wanted her to do anything differently.
On top of that she's a wonderful person and I can honestly say that I trust her with my little baby boy.
Both my daughter and son go to Nikki and have gained so much from their time with her, it has been a wonderful experience for them.
My daughter was one when she started going to Nikki's and on the first day she had settled in so well that she did not want to come home! My son started with her at 5 months and settled well.
Nikki has provides many exciting activities for my daughter, has made some lovely gifts for special days and has also taken her to groups to help her socialise. There is always something going on and lots of different play experiences, both inside and outside, during the day. My daughter's language skills have increased dramatically with Nikki and she talks non-stop. Her motor skills have also improved due to all the activities that Nikki offers
My daughter has a fairly strict diet and Nikki has maintained this and also checks with us if there is something that she would like to offer her or the playgroup is offering. When my daughter has eaten at Nikki's she has always enjoyed the healthy food provided. My son has been weaning with Nikki and she again checks with us when there is something she is unsure of.
I have been very happy with everything Nikki has done for both my children and I cannot praise her enough for all she has done to make their experiences so joyful. I have no hesitation in recommending Nikki.
My daughter attended for about 2 years. She thoroughly enjoyed her time there and learned a lot. I was always happy with the care an attention she received. I would highly recommend.
