Nicola Flood

Home Childcarer

Hi, my name is Nikki, I am 47, I have a large house with a play room and large garden very near the park. I have 29 years experience in childcare, as a nanny (with full 2yr qualification) , working in schools or nurseries and as a mother of two myself, both quite grown up now at 23 and 20 years, my daughter graduated university and now working as a fashion designer and my son studing English at Exeter Universety. Now over 5 years into childminding in my own home, I have renewed my  First Aid training, Food Hygiene course, Child Protection course and EYFS training, as well as up-dating my training by taking The level 3 diploma for the children and young peoples workforce (QCF) and special educational needs training.

When OFSTED came out to see me and my home, they were very pleased with what they saw. I was given a 'Good' by Ofsted 4 months into childminding, and more recentlyI was given 'Outstanding Quality of Care' by Waltham Forest.  I am fully registered by ofsted as a childminder and am currently looking after various children of different ages, now over 5 years into this career I love it even more than when I started.

I took on an assistant 2 years ago, to help with the school run's, alowing me to stay here with the little ones while she carries out the school runs. As this has been such a success and due to her deciding to go part time, I have now taken on a second assistant, creating a few more spaces for a few more little one's, although I still wish to keep numbers down so that I can spend one to one time with each of the children in my care. Each day is different and I love that.
