Hello and welcome to my website, where you will find full information about my childcare services, myself and my family.
Hi my name is Nicky, I am an Ofsted registered funded childminder in Chivenor, Devon but can also cover Braunton and surrounding areas. I am fully insured through Morton Michel.
I have been a childminder since April 2001 caring for a wide age range of children from birth to 14 years.
I have two children of my own, a girl and a boy who make minded children feel very welcome. We have a pet cat called Tiggs, a cute little pomerainian dog called Oakley and two Leopard Gecko's called Freddie and Amy.
I believe in providing good quality care in a safe, loving and clean environment where children can play and develop essential life skills in order to thrive, we have a safe secure rear enclosed garden for children to play in and explore.
I can collect children to and from Southmead Pre-School, Southmead Primary School, Braunton Academy and Chivenor Bright Start nursery and pre-school. Other schools may be available please enquire as to availability. I provide healthy snacks to all children.
My home is gas safety checked every year and my car and home insurance are all relevant to my child minding, so I am fully insured in all areas to care for children.
My usual working hours are 8am to 6pm Monday to Friday but I am happy to work outside of these hours by special arrangement, I am also registered to provide over night care.
I can provide care over night, bank holidays, school holidays and term time. I can also do weekends via arrangement. The only days I can not provide care for are Christmas day, Boxing day and New years day. I am also able to offer emergency care if required, so if your current child minder is unwell I may be able to help.
I can provide meals at an additional cost, breakfast, lunch and tea is all available. Fresh fruit, milk, water or juice can be provided at snack time.
My fees include the following provisions:-
- 2 x healthy snacks (one in the morning and one in the afternoon)
- All drinks, water, juice, tea, coffee, hot chocolate (depending on the age of the child)
- Admission to any regular activities such as toddler groups
- All resources and activities
I can provide meals on request and at an additional cost but do encourage parents to bring children with a packed lunch as this way the parent knows what their child is eating and how much, it also makes things a little easier if we are out and about at lunch times.
