Nothing is too much for Nat and her team, they go above and beyond for all the children. My two children aged 11 and 5 settled immediately. I was a little worried when my son started school however Nat sent photos and updates when she picked him up. Can't recommend Nat and her team enough they all absolutely amazing!!
Precious used to look after my 3 childrens. She very generous childminder and caring. My daughter used spend most of her time in precious setting she has helped my daughter a lot because my daughter she is very shy girl difficult of making friends and communicating with others children of age but for the past 2 years precious help my daughter to build up her confidence she got a lot of friends and he writing skills is brilliant precious have done excellent work with my 3 children special my daughter.
Beautiful and friendly lady, my girl loves her. I couldn’t ask for more from her. Nimisha is nice and peaceful for me a mother to be able to get on with my day life knowing my baby is in safety and good hands. I recommend her to all who needs a good friendly responsible Childminder.we love you Dear Nimisha and we soo thankful for having you.
My son has been going to Nats since he was 11 month he is now 2.... he has came on leaps and bounds since going and has became alot more confident with other people looking after him. He looks forward to seeing nat and her team and always comes back happy. Nat keeps me updated on how he is doing when he is there. She is so flexiable with childcare compared to nurseries which suits our needs as a family as we both work shift work. Always willing to go that extra mile to help me out at the last minute if I need her. Brilliant team and services !!!!!!
My son has been going to Lisa every week for nearly four months and he absolutely loves it. She provides excellent care and are always taking the children out to do things even in the current circumstances. Lisa and Billie also do a lot of indoor activities too that really has bought my son out of his shell and he thoroughly enjoys being there. Lisa is always quick to contact me should there be any problems and my son being vegetarian, has provided great food alternatives for him. Would definitely recommend Lisa.

Justyna is absolutely brilliant with our little boy. She is really caring and approachable. She is also really flexible and helpful with any issues that come up. We feel really at ease sending out son to Justyna because we know that he being properly cared for as well as learning so much with every visit!
David has been an absolute blessing and such a massive help to us.
Both of my children (4 & 10) stay at David's from Tuesdays to Thursdays after school and full days during holidays.
My children school does not offer any after school provision and we luckily found David here.
My children enjoy their time with David, their stays are fun and educational, full of varieties, which they really really enjoy.
David is such a caring and reliable individual and I could not be more grateful for his support, commitment, care and compassion towards children and us as parents.
He is very keen on keeping record of my children progression and development and keeps me and my husband updated on a regular basis. I work long hours and I never had any worries or concerns as I know that my children are having a fantastic time in a safe and caring environment. They are always excited when it comes to Tuesday knowing that David is picking them up from school. I know we can always count on David if needed and if you want your children to learn and discover things that will help them in their development, I could not think of anyone better than David. He is just amazing, we are looking forward to many more years with David. Thank you David.
We have been recommended to use Just like Home Childcare owned and run by Katie Heal for our baby boy and we are so grateful for it.
The care, love and safe entertainment that has been provided there for Arthur has been no short than outstanding.
What Katie and her team have created is the perfect combo in between the warmth of a childminder's home and the structure and fun educational entertainment of a nursery.
Arthur loved going there. He felt safe and happy there. He enjoyed playing with his little friends, the delicious homemade meals, the fun activities and the outings in the van and so much more!
Without forgetting Teddie the dog who made Arthur feel home from day one.
As parents we loved receiving daily updates of what Arthur was up to, with detailed comments and photos. Just perfect.
It has been a real privilege for us to have Arthur at Just Like Home Childcare and we feel so lucky that Arthur started his social life under Katie's and Vicky's care.
Lisa is incredible! From the first day our daughter Rose was with her we never looked back. Not only is she wonderful with the babies/children, she is also a great support to the parents. I often asked her advice on things and with such a great wealth of experience she had great insight into basically everything! She has been doing childminding for so long that she has seen everything when it comes to babies/children.
Her home is the perfect setting for children; with a designated play area in the house with lots of toys and a really large garden for the children to run around, again with plenty of toys. It's a children's dream!
My daughter Rose started with Lisa when she was 11 months and so was in her care for nearly 2 years. Rose absolutely loved it and always said she loves Lisa (still does!) We have moved to Kent which is why we no longer are with Lisa and it was honestly one of the hardest things about the move; to stop Rose being in her care.
Lisa is extremely organised and provides updates throughout the day with pictures which is lovely. As well as this, she explains what they do in the day and what her actions will be in terms of the children's development. I had no idea there were 7 areas of development until Lisa shared this with me!
Lisa is very on top of keeping her home clean. Particularly this year with COVID-19 which has obviously required extra care in this area and takes a lot of time and energy to do so - it is something that I hugely appreciated.
In terms of food, I was always so impressed with what Lisa produced for the children. Always a nutritious meal with fruit and vegetables, as well as snacks mid morning and mid afternoon. At the end of the day, she would always let me know how much Rose ate which was always good to know and to be kept informed.
Overall, both me and my husband were utterly over the moon with Lisa as our daughter's childminder and would recommend her to anyone. She goes above and beyond for the children (and parents) and creates such a happy environment. She's a real gem. I couldn't have asked for more. Thank you Lisa for being the best!
Emma was great from the start. My daughter immediately got comfortable in Emma's home. With our first meeting she was already playing with her daughter and Emma.
My daughter did two mornings a week. Her house was very spacious amd suitable for children. Her outdoor garden was great for the kids to play in.
We was always updated through out the day what she ate, how many nappies, what she had done and pictures.
Highly recommend Emma and hoping to go back there soon.
Wonderful childminder fun, reliable and caring
Betty has been the best thing to happen to us she taken care of our 2 year old daughter 3 days a week. She has spent full time with her during lockdown, keeping her active, preparing meals and improvising many creative activities. Taking her to parks and for walk and always play in garden. She cook amazing fresh and healthy food.
I strongly recommend her for any childcare responsibility. She is reliable, creative, warm and VERY FLEXIBLE.
I cannot recommend BETTY enough.

Caroline is everything you can wish for in a childminder. My son cant wait to get out of the house in the morning to go to "carol" i.e. Caroline. Caroline is a very loving and caring childminder. She is very attentive to my sons needs and she communicates with us very well. She offers a very warm and fun environment and I can not say enough how grateful we are that we have found her. I can't recommend her enough.
Chris is everything we had hoped for in childminder. She put us at ease immediately and we felt extremely confident in leaving our son for the first time and he absolutely loves it . Chris creates a fun and educational environment and is attentive to development opportunities and logs these in our sons own little diary , so we never feel we miss out on important milestones such as his first steps . We are always kept updated and received pictures of what our son has been up to, such as visiting the local park and feeding the ducks . Chris is a kind, patient person and fantastic childminder. I am very glad we found her!
Catherine looked after little boy and we can't recommend her highly enough. She was energetic, engaging and most importantly caring and patient with our 1 year old. She would take him out to places of interest and keep him fully engaged, as well as cooking home nutritious food for him.
Catherine was punctual and would listen to our concerns and requests for what we wanted for our son. She was easy to communicate with, a joy to talk to and we felt very comfortable letting her look after him.
We would not hesitate in recommending her and using her again.
Zoki is a fantastic Childminder. We are fortunate to have her caring for our 18 months daughter for the last six months.
She is vey organized, talented and attention to detail. She is caring, fun, and strict when she needs to. Our daughter is bilingual, Zoki is very patient in teaching her tones, pronunciation of English, and encouraging her to speak. Our daughter had learned a lot from Zoki.
Zoki is also excellent in habit formation for a child. Every little steps she suggested proved to work. In a short period of time, our daughter was able to make improvement on her eating and sleeping.
Zoki is very trustworthy. It feels like I leave my daughter to my Mom that I don’t need to worry about anything. It was a difficult decision to let Zoki go as our circumstances changed. I would never hesitate recommending Zoki to anyone who is looking for a trustworthy, caring, loving and responsible Childminder.
Our daughter has been with Charlotte for 1 year now and she is so happy and she will be very sad to leave, as will we (due to relocation)!
Charlotte has taken her from 8 months to 18 months and we could not recommend her highly enough. It has been a home from home for our wee one.
She has gained a structure in terms of her sleeping and a routine and sometimes seems genuinely unhappy on leaving at the end of the day! She seems to sleep better there than at home.
We had absolutely no concerns at any point in the last year, and the communication has always been excellent and clear.
Charlotte and her team genuinely care about the children. A kind and loving environment.
Our baby boy has been going to Nimisha since he was 12 months old. She has been extremely patient and kind with settling him in and very flexible with accommodating our preferences and schedules. This has resulted in our baby developing a strong and beautiful bond with her and he clearly enjoys his time in her care. He is benefiting from Nimisha’s full time care now and has developed so much socially and physically. Nimisha pays great attention to providing a calm, clean, happy and engaging environment for the children in her care and has enabled the children to also bond beautifully with each other. She provides daily reports detailing all the activities they’ve done, how these translate into developmental skills, their amount of sleep, number of nappy changes, the food they’ve had etc. In this regard we are also very grateful to her for managing our child’s food allergies with the outmost care and professionalism. She communicates everything with us and we feel we can talk to her easily about anything regarding our child. I love how much our child’s manners and ways of communication have developed and are becoming better and better each day under her care. Every day at her house is exciting for our child and full of festivities. I truly believe that our child is like family to her and I have the highest level of trust in her. Her skills in childminding and her kindness towards our child and us are second to none.
I took my children to Jenny after being upset with the poor care I felt she received at a local nursery. I was concerned about using a childminder initially and entrusting one person to look after my child alone. Jenny works with an assistant which settled my nerves in the first instance, however we had no need to worry. Ella was happy, she looked forward to going to see "my Jenny". She formed a bond with her and I believe it was reciprocated. The children play nicely and are played with rather than left to play independently as they were in nursery. I love how happy, well cared for, and loved Ella felt with Jenny.
Jenny has been professional throughout our time with her, she works hard to ensure her buisness is successful, but firstly that the children are happy and the parents are too. She communicates well, send photos throughout the day from time to time, and it really has been a home from home for Ella. I couldn't be happier with the care we received. We will remember her forever.
