Nikki Wells (Down the Lane)

My name is Nikki, I live in Billingham with my husband, two daughters; and several pets. I have worked with children for 19 years in Schools and private nurseries, gaining experience of working with children aged from new born to 10 years old. At one point during my career in Childcare I took a break and went to work in a Solicitors as a Conveyancing Secretary, I only lasted 4 months because it was there that I really knew that Childcare was my calling.

I went back to work in a private nursery where I stayed for 10 years, only leaving when I was pregnant with my second daughter and I decided to be a stay-at-home Mam so I could raise my children. When they both started full time school, I went back to work in a private nursery close to home and found that although I enjoyed working with the children still, I was no longer happy in this type of setting so I made the big decision to set up a home from home environment and become a Childminder; I have never been happier.

I hold qualifications in; level 2 Teaching assistant, Level 3 – Nursery Nurse, Level 4 – Advanced Practice in Working with Children and Families and I also hold a Child Psychology Diploma.

After working with so many families, and being a parent myself, I understand how difficult it can be leaving your little ones (and big ones) in a childcare setting, it is my aim to help make this easier. I am a firm believer in working in partnership with parents.

Please feel free to get in touch to discuss your childcare needs.
