About Me 

My name is Nicola, I am an Ofsted registered childminder. I live in East Ardsley, Wakefield (also covering the areas of Tingley and Thorpe) with my lovely husband of 20 years Simon and our two children Georgia and Liam. We are an active family and enjoy an outdoor lifestyle.

I live in a lovely 3 storey 4 bedroomed house with a secure garden to the rear. I use the whole ground floor space for the children to play which consists of a large kitchen dinner, a play room, a large hallway and for those children that are toilet trained there is a downstairs w/c. I have a quiet bedroom on the first floor for the children that still have nap times.

I offer parents a reliable, flexible service and provide a loving, caring and stimulating environment where you can leave your children knowing they feel happy, safe and secure.


I care for children from birth to teens. Your children will be encouraged to explore in lots of different activities as well as having the choice of

free play. I have a wide range of toys and resources available.
