Audley House Childcare

Audley House Childcare is an Ofsted registered childcare setting in Broomfield. They run an After School Club with collection service from Broomfield Primary School. Based in a large family home just a few minutes walk from the school - with a spacious living room, separate playroom, kitchen/diner, downstairs bathroom and a secure lawned back garden. With a maximum of six children per day, they are able to provide a nurturing and homely environment where children feel cared for and safe.

Audley House Childcare is run by Nicole Mattinson who has a BA (Hons) Childhood Studies degree and eighteen years experience working in the childcare industry. She is first aid trained and police checked.

Nicole collects from Broomfield Primary School at 3.10pm and then walks the children the short distance back to her home. On the way they often stop at the playground or the library. Back at the house, there is a wide range of activities for children to choose from - arts & crafts, baking, toys, board games, drama, story telling, Lego, games in the garden, puppets, facepainting and much more. Children will be provided with a healthy after school snack and are able to help themselves to a drink at all times. The afterschool club is open until 6pm and parents are welcome to collect their children at any time until then.

"Nicole Mattinson is quite simply the best Nanny/Childminder you could ever hire. She has a very special bond with children and we know that we will never find another Carer who our children adore more. Anyone who hires Nicole has hit gold. No reference could do her skill justice. She loves her job - and it shows. We have hired a lot of nannies - but Nicole is in a league of her own. You would be lucky to have her!" (Natasha Kaplinsky, Newsreader and Television Presenter)

"Nicole is an absolutely amazing Childminder, I really couldn't have asked for any more for after school care for my son. She is calm, patient, incredibly kind and just has a natural way with children. I could not recommend her more highly." (Laura, Broomfield parent)

"Nicole is a wonderful childminder, she has a great attitude and is very friendly and warm to the children. My little one settled in straight away and played very nicely with Nicole's children. I was well informed about everything to do with safety and safeguarding procedures and had daily reports on their activities as well as food charts. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Audley House and will be using their childminding services again. Nicole is very professional and has a wealth of experience that shines through in her confident, competent manner." (Clare, Broomfield parent)

"I cannot recommend Nicole's care highly enough. There is a home from home approach and Nicole creates a fun, stimulating and safe environment which helped my child to thrive during her time at Audley House." (Sarah, Broomfield parent)
