My name is Nicola and I am a childminder in the Broadstairs area. I care for children from 3 months old to 11 years old and able to offer a school run service within Broadstairs/Cliftonville area. I enjoy working with children and provide a fun caring environment. I am a qualified health professional and have cared for babies within the hospital setting for the last 8 years. My son and daughter work alongside me as registered childcare assistants; my daughter is trained in childcare and my son is a scout leader, both have experience of working with children, safeguarding training and paediatric first aid certificates. We have lots of resources to allow children to learn and play at their own pace. We have a friendly family dog and two rabbits. I am open from 7am to 6pm and can offer flexiblity if needed.
