We are a French family, for 2 weeks Mia has been taking care of our 2 year old son every morning. She is very kind and very attentive, we are very satisfied with her work.

Donna has been our childminder for 4 years now and both my girls really enjoy their time with her and all the adventures they go on while in her care. Communication is good, the setting is fun and warm and my daughters have made lovely friendships with the other children. I highly recommend Donna if you're looking for a childminder either all day or for wrap around school care.

We moved my 1 year old from a nursery setting to little feet big steps and it was the best decision we made. Since the move he has made so much progress with his speech, social skills and confidence.
Charlotte provides such a nurturing, fun, educational & homely setting. There isn't a day that the children are not doing something different. Weekly they go to either soft plays, sensory room or the farm to give them the extra experiences. Charlotte goes above and beyond for my little one. He rings the bell every morning (with a dance) and strolls straight in without hesitation.
We can't thank Little feet big steps enough. Highly recommend

Nhit Lin - London
Reviewed

Lin has looked after both of our daughters from age 1-3 and her care has always been excellent. She maintains the perfect balance of having clear routines for the children with attending to their individual needs. Both our daughters have always been happy with Lin. She is calm, gentle and warm. She t addles the children on trips out most mornings and regularly meets up with other childminders or to a playgroup so the children get the security of a small group (3 children) and home-based setting with opportunities to socialise with a wider group. My daughters have always slept well and eaten well with Lin and knowing they are well cared for and in a great setting has been wonderful in helping them develop and get ready for preschool. I would highly recommend Lin.

Simona began looking after our youngest daughter from 11months old, she is now 3 and attends nursery at a local school where Simona collects her from at 3.20 each day. We are incredibly lucky to have been recommended Simona and have seen the huge impact she has had on our daughters fundamental early years education. Méabh feels at home and safe with Simona and has built a wonderful relationship with her two daughters as well. Simona is highly organised, caring, patient and understanding, she gives regular updates throughout the day via WhatsApp and shares pictures of the wonderful activities they have been doing. Our second daughter has now also started with Simona and even though it can be difficult working full time, I feel like I am leaving my children with a family member and know they will receive the highest possible care.

Millie - Northampton
Reviewed

Millie has been looking after our little boy twice a week since he was just 3 months old. She is fun, gentle and incredibly caring - his little face lights up when she arrives in the morning! As anxious first time parents, Millie gives great advice & inspires confidence - we trust her 100%. We have worked together to create & adapt his routine, which Millie implements flawlessly alongside lots of games, songs & sensory play to help him hit all the usual milestones. I could not recommend Millie enough and would always be happy to provide a more detailed personal reference!

Both my children attended here for almost 3 years. Hannah and her girls hold a very special place in my little girls heart, and even after leaving a year ago does she still me how much they are missed by her. Hannah was absolutely amazing with both of them and had a great influence on my little boy. Both thoroughly enjoyed going to Hannahs, for the trips out she took them on, and the educational activities too. My eldest learnt so much from Hannah and I will be forever grateful for her help prepping my eldest for school. Her home was so welcoming and my children felt very secure and confident in Hannahs hands.
Definitely missed and totally the best in the area!
Thanks Hannah for all your hard work and dedication!

Cannot speak highly enough of Carla and Luiz. From the moment our sometimes difficult son started there they welcomed him as if he was one of their own. Nothing was ever too much trouble and they often accommodated us when we were unavoidably delayed due to work commitments, etc.

Always friendly and loving towards us and our son and even having left now he still speaks about Carla and Luiz lovingly which is testament to their qualities as both childminders and people in general.

They often added lovely personal touches to their service on occasions such as Christmas, Easter and Mother's day to name but a few. These extra bits and pieces make what they do even more special.

We cannot recommend them highly enough and you would have to go a long way to find a more lovingly wonderful pair to look after your children.

Sharon has been nanny to my two children (and 3 and 1) for the last year. She's so warm and loving and really got to know and love the kids. She brought our girl out of her shell and found so many lovely activities to do with her each day and she was amazing with our baby boy!! Sharon is reliable and trustworthy and she felt like part of the family.

Reka - Smethwick
Reviewed

I met Reka through Hungarian Community Group when I was pregnant with my second born, she is now nearly 4 years old and has been with Reka since she was 5 month old. Reka is absolutely amazing with the children, she does treat them as individuals. She is very friendly, reliable, trustworthy and transparent. Reka was very helpful throughout the years,especially through potty training. I do like that she takes the children out to local communities, so they can experience diversity. I cannot fault her in any way. My daughter and my whole family will miss her as unfortunately we are moving away in September.

I am delighted to write a review for Simona, who has been providing outstanding care for my child, Victoria. From the moment we started, Simona has shown incredible dedication, warmth, and professionalism.

She creates a loving and supportive atmosphere that makes my daughter feel comfortable and happy every day. Her nurturing approach helps her to thrive and feel at home.

Every day is filled with fun, educational, and age-appropriate activities that keep Victoria engaged and excited to learn. From arts and crafts to outdoor play, there is always something interesting planned.

Simona maintains excellent communication with us parents. I always receive updates about Victoria’s day, including her activities, meals, and any milestones.

I wholeheartedly recommend her services to any parent looking for a trustworthy, caring, and professional childminder. Your child will be in excellent hands with Simona.

Both Carla and Luis are absolutely amazing. They have been looking after our daughter for over a year now and she loves spending time with them. Often asking about them even during weekends. They have a lovely set up in their home, huge variety of toys and games. They are often organising various activities such as painting, puzzles, singing, Christmas party and so much more. First weeks are always stressful for both kids and parents especially as our daughter was only one when started childcare, but Carla and Luis had a very personal approach to our daughter, allowing her as much time as she needed to settle down. Regular updates and pictures made it so much easier for us - parents. Communication is always on point and we are receiving daily updates on what our daughter had for lunch and dinner. I highly recommend CL Explorers, it’s a happy and safe place for kids! Carla and Luis - we can’t thank you enough <3

My daughter has been with Cassie and Siobhan since January 2022 and has been very happy ever since then. They offer lots of varied activities messy play, sensory play, crafts and activities. I really appreciate the extra effort that is made with Mothers/Fathers day, christmas etc when we receive hand made cards and gifts that have created wonderful memories over the years. They also go on various outings such as soft plays, toddler groups, library visits, parks and the farm. The communication is very good and we always receive pictures of what she has been upto each day, which gives a lovely snapshot into her day. Both Cassie and Siobhan are very reliable and accommodating which is so important as a working parent.
They have helped my daughter develop in all areas over the years and she is such a happy, sociable confident little girl and i know they have both contributed to this. I am so pleased to have found Cassie and Siobhan they have given my daughter the best start in life and i am forever grateful, i would highly recommend them both to everyone.

Our son started at Jackie's at 9 months old. I was absolutely dreading it but Jackie made it so easy. She listened to my concerns always. Helped if there was something troubling our son. Was a safe place for our son to go away from home. His confidence and learning with Jackie was incredible and I was sad to move on as Jackie and Neil felt like family. Our little boy still talks about Jackie. I wish I could have taken her to preschool with him! Thank you for everything Jackie!

Jade - Broxbourne

Jade is brilliant.
Jade looked after my 1yr old son and if we hadn't have been moving he would still be with her and my new baby would be going to her too.
Jade is an excellent childminder. She loves her job and it shows. The children are in a happy and positive home and they thrive in her care. When I first spoke to Jade I'd such a good feeling about her. I was right. Her house is fully set up for a child's development. I would get daily updates, texts and photos about their day.
I particularly loved the idea that Jade had always planned in an activity to get the little ones outside. A walk, play at the park, playgroups or even out in the garden. They weren't restricted to a 1 single room all day.
Jade took so much time to prepare and cook all their meals from scratch, which was always something different everyday. I often wanted to stay for something to eat.
Jade is naturally upbeat and genuinely down to earth. I had no worries when my son was in her care. In fact she made it all very easy for me and my son. It was a home away from home for him.
I really didn't want to leave her and did try to convince her to move too.
If you are searching for a childminder then look no further, I felt so lucky having found her, you will too.
All the Best Jade.
Thank you again

We found Ranj through a recommendation.. my previous CM was unexpectedly taken ill and Ranj took my son as an emergency.. We soon change to her permanently, my son doesn't take to new people well but with Ranj he was always smiling and genuinely loved going. We have been with her for over a year now and he has gained so much confidence and has learnt so much.

Ranj is great in supporting and trying to continue your home routine around naps and food ect and even supporting potty training.

I wish we found her sooner but I am glad we are there now.

Rebecca - Leigh on Sea

We can’t recommend Rebecca enough, it’s so lovely to hand our daughter over to her knowing that she will have a fantastic time and is with someone who really cares for her.

Rebecca has been looking after our daughter since January 2024, from when she was 4 months old, and is fantastic. Being conscious of how young my daughter was Rebecca worked with us to build up the time that she spent with her, going at my daughters pace. Initially having her for one afternoon a week we quickly increased this to two.

Rebecca is great at working on development and we can see the impact she has had on areas such as speech, fine motor skills and confidence in new surroundings. Rebecca is proactive in suggesting activities she can do with our daughter, both inside and outside the home.

Rebecca documents each session with a thread of photos and videos in WhatsApp, alongside updates on nappy, food etc… Not only is this great for keeping track of things, but it’s fabulous to see the fun they are having.

Rebecca has built a strong and lovely bond with my daughter, whose face lights up when Rebecca arrives. We have now started to have Rebecca look after her so we can have date nights and my daughter happily lets Rebecca put her to bed with no impact on her sleep, something which shows how comfortable she is with Rebecca.

Simona V - London Borough of Barnet

The title just says it all. Simona has looked after my boy since he was 11 months old until he turned 3. From the get go, we saw our boy coming home happy and developing so quickly all thanks to Simona. She is loving caring and knows the needs and wants from each child. I love how she has a lovely large garden with lots and lots of toys to play with. She sets up activities on a weekly basis and takes them to the local park. Every time I picked up my son, he just didn’t want to leave. I still paise her to this day, and now my daughter is attending her setting, we didn’t need to look else where, I was adamant she had to go with Simona. Both of my kids settled in really well. We adore you Simona, you’re just so loving and caring with my kids.
