......"I love going to Nicky and Pauls house, they are the best. I have been to a few places before and didnt like it, but its really fun here.
They have a book which we can write down what we would like to play with, then Nicky will buy some of them for us. At Christmas she always buys presents for the playroom. ".

About us

We are registered childminders operating from a secure home environment in Teignmouth, Devon. Nicky has been registered since Nov 1999, Paul has been registered since Apr 2004 and we also employ an assistant, Nicky Ford. Our daughter Gemma is also registered to help out as and when required.

We have a spacious house that includes two dedicated large rooms for childminding, which means the children have lots of space to play and have fun! Our main toy room is equipped with a variety of toys, arts & crafts and education materials and the second room is mainly used for quiet activities such as reading, board games and resting. We have a large outdoor play area where children can run around, play on cars, make dens and have lots of fun etc. This area is mainly decked with a smaller grass area. The children also have access to outdoor activities all year round as we have a purpose built area for children to use whatever the weather, this houses a large professional ball pit and a soft play area. We continually update/renew our resources and always look at the individual interests of the children when buying new toys. We operate a "wish list" for the children to record their up to date interests so we can always be sure that we are buying something they will like.

We cater for children from birth - 14 years and offer childcare from Monday to Friday 7.00 am - 7.00 pm all year round. Weekends, Bank Holidays and hours outside our normal working hours are available upon request. We also offer local school drop off's and pick ups where necessary, as well as full time childcare within the school holidays.

We are both specialist childminders in early years and can offer the 15 hours Devon Early Years Education Funding for 3 & 4 year olds and also the 2gether funding for 2 year olds.

We have received favourable reports from Social Services and Ofsted and we received Outstanding in all 17 areas during our Ofsted inspection in October 2010 and during our recent inspection in July 2014 we received an outstanding in contributing to the well-being of children with an overall grading of good.

We have a solid reputation for providing a caring, safe and fun environment for children in a home surrounding, offering children of all ages a variety of activities to educate, stimulate and have fun!
