  1. My husband and I are both shift workers and searching for the right kind of child care was proving to be a real issue. Thankfully a friend told me about Nicky and Paul (and family) and so I went to visit before Charlie was even born. They are such a lovely people and I could not have asked for a better family type environment for Charlie which is exactly what I wanted as he would only be 6 months when he started. In fact Nicky and Paul were so flexible I actually took him from 6 weeks so that he could adjust but also so I could have a few hours to myself. Having no family nearby and a husband who is often away with work this actually preserved my sanity! Whilst to some this could appear selfish I believe that Charlie gets to see and experience different things than being at home with me all day. Plus I'm a better mum as a result. They are totally supportive to me and amazing with Charlie. I couldn't recommend them enough!

  2. "Archie has been with Nicky and Paul since he was 11 weeks old. The level of care and support they have given to our son and to us has been second to none. Archie loves the time he spends there and his development has been way above expectation. Much of this is due to the nurture and individual care that they have given Archie. This ranges from simple values like good manners to the implementation of numerical awareness and speech development. Wonderful! "

  3. Nicky and Paul Burgess are exceptional childminders who have looked after all three of my children. I would highly recommend them. The resources are amazing and the children do not just benefit from a sound educational foundation, but they also develop a huge respect for adults and other children. Nicky and Paul are not just childminders but have become more like extended family. My children have a lot of fun and thoroughly enjoy the huge range of stimulating activities and trips out.

  4. My children have been coming to Paul & Nicky's over the last 14yrs and during this time i have seen how they have adapted to meet the needs of the children and to constantly strive to provide exceptional care and education for the children they look after. There resources are outstanding and rival even the larger nurseries in our area and outside. I am very happy to leave my children with Paul & Nicky and would'nt hesitate to reccommend them to any parent seeking childcare. They always go the extra mile and put the needs of the children at the heart of all they do. Thank you for all the care and support over the years.

  5. Nicky & Paul put heart and soul into caring and engaging all the children who are in their care, through the provision of clean, safe and stimulating facilties.
    Combining an extension to learning under the more formal educational curriculum, with fun activities, copious amounts of crafting (our fridge and flat surfaces are evidence of this), visits from external educational organisations, and trips to local atttractions. All of which are delivered in a way that the children themselves see as pure fun.
    Our daughter Charlotte has been attending daily term time since she commenced primary school 2 years ago, with the addition of ocassional days during holidays, and absolutely loves it! She loves the interaction with children of all ages (birth to pre secondary school), with many firm friends made, and the extended virtual family opened up, through the sense of belonging, community and responsibility engendered in being part of all group activities.
    We would not hesitate to recommend Nicky and Paul, for their friendly care, fantastic facilities, and family feel of the whole experience,

  6. My daughter Isabella has been looked after by Paul and Nicky for over 18 months now and Isabella has thrived under their care. She brings home lots of crafts, has a great time interacting with the other children and I know she thoroughly enjoys her trips out. The care she receives is outstanding and has aided her development in many ways. I could not praise Paul and Nicky enough for the consistent care, enthusiasm, committment and expertise provided.

  7. Our daughter absolutley loves her time at Nicky and Pauls. They do so much with the children including going out to the Zoo, park and crabbing on the seafront. She is always coming home with various items she has made; including lovely gifts for Mothers Day and Fathers Day. It is clear Nicky and Paul love their job and the children they look after, which makes the care my daughter receives exceptional!

  8. My son loves it with Nicky and Paul. Everytime I arrive he is doing something different. He has made friends and grown in confidence during his time here. Nicky and Paul have a welcome enviroment which is warm and friendly allowing all children to feel safe and secure. The resources are endless and toys are rotated often ensuring that there is plenty of variety. Their standards are high throughout teaching respect and manners within each child.

  9. Bobbie started at Nicky and Pauls at 18 months old and within a few weeks we noticed a massive change in her development, this, we put down to the fantastic care and attention show towards Bobbie. Bobbie is now 10 years old and the pre-school element of Nicky and Pauls gave Bobbie a major headstart to full time education, we would not hesitate in recomending Nicky and Paul to any other parent looking for quality care and pre-school education for there children. Many thanks Gavin and Sharon.

  10. Frankie loves his time with Nicky and Paul. Since being with them we have noticed his confidence growing, as well as a great change in his physical and verbal development. He really enjoys spending time with the other children and is learning to share and play with the others. We believe this is down to Nicky, Paul, Gemma and Nicky's time and attention. All the children always seem well looked after and to be having fun and enjoy a wonderful range of activities. We find the environment safe, homely, welcoming and fun.

  11. We just wanted to drop you a brief note to summarise how well Maiah (7) and Finbar (5) have been cared for by you over the years.
    Maiah and Fin both started coming to you when Emma’s maternity leave ended each time. You have been tremendously flexible, allowing Emma to work her variable shifts as a Staff Nurse. Maiah and Finbar have always thrived while in your care, and have developed all their skills. This has continued since they started school, coming to you before and after school as needed. They have been taught excellent manners and discipline and their social interaction has been allowed to flourish.
    Thank you for your excellent service over so many years!

  12. Nicky and Paul are fully committed to each and every child in their care with regard to both their physical and mental development, with safety always paramount. The range of resources they provide is astounding and they are extremely creative with the activities that they engage the children in. They give the children the very best start before they enter more formal education.

    We chose this particular setting for our children because it offered a friendly home from home atmosphere, with children of different age groups, which has given our own children the confidence to mix with others that they do not know. We have a constant dialogue with Nicky and Paul so that we are working in partnership to make sure there is continuity of care and so that our children are aware of our expectations with regard to their behaviour and manners.

    They look forward to going each morning and often do not wish to leave at the end of the day when they are collected.

    Surely the sign of somewhere they enjoy being!
