Here are some of the latest reviews that we have received from parents who have used childcare providers listed on our website.
Charlene from London Borough of Waltham Forest on Julie, 26 Feb 2017
Julie is absolutely fantastic! I reached out last minute for help with our son for a few hours..Julie was great. True professional and our little one felt very secure. If we are ever in harrogate again we will 100% use her services again.
Charlene from London Borough of Waltham Forest on rosinha, 26 Feb 2017
Rose responded promptly at very short notice to look after our 3 year son. Rose also sent letters or recommendation to put our mind at ease, taking it into account it was the first time we were using her services. Rose Arrived just before our requested time, extremely nice and came across very professional. I would highly recommend rose for babysitting and definitely will have her number on speed dial for future work.
JVSH153 from London Borough of Croydon on Julie Nangle, 26 Feb 2017
Julie has been having my son 2 days a week now since January 2017. I love her as does my 14 month old son.
Julie communicates well on all matters and is professional in her paperwork. Julie is very creative with the activities She leads at her home with my son. And the are very appropriate to what's going on that week etc... (Fab picture received for Chinese New Year and my valentines card made me cry it was so lovely). She also takes my son to various groups, which he now loves (he is a shy boy, so took him a while)
I am thrilled how well the arrangement is going. And couldn't wish for a better childminder.
He adores smokey (Julie's cat) who is ever so good with children and allows my son to play and stoke him (and even follow him around).
Can't recommend Julie enough.
HappyMum from South Oxfordshire on Linda Stanley, 26 Feb 2017
Fantastic with children who have disabilities. (ADHD and ASD) Linda will bend over backwards to try to meet the needs of parents as well as the child. Promotes independence in little ones, encouragement and praise ensures children are reaching their full potential. Outings are regular, and the children have great social skills and confidence. Brilliant rates. I have known a few childminders through the years, and Linda has definately been the best by far.
Jemma from Eastbourne on Summerdo, 25 Feb 2017
As a first time mum and leaving my daughter at only 6 months, with a complete stranger, to say I was nervous was an understatement! However, Naomi made me so relaxed, never judged me when I asked questions and is always so easy to talk to. My daughter loves Naomi and the environment at Summerdowns. I have no reservations in recommending Summerdown Childminding and can not speak highly enough of Naomi. From the first contact to the continued support, Naomi gives a first class service.
Cheryl from Harborough on Kirsty W, 25 Feb 2017
Kirsty's is like a home from home. All of the children under Kirsty's care are treated as part of the family. My daughter has been on so many adventures with Kirsty from local farm visits to visiting attractions in central London. I cannot recommend Kirsty highly enough. She is an outstanding childminder and all of the children in her care are very lucky.
Sarah from Watford on mum6, 25 Feb 2017
Niki has looked after our son Flynn since he was less than one year old. He settled in really quickly and I knew we'd made the right decision. Niki has treated Flynn like one of her own children, she takes him to various playgroups and messy-play groups and he has thrived under her care. She has been incredibly flexible in regard to our working hours even at short notice. She was also very accommodating of his infant milk allergy. I can honestly say that I found going back to work a lot easier knowing that I knew Flynn was in great hands. Flynn is always so happy to go to Niki's house in the mornings and barely says goodbye as he is so excited to go inside and play! We are so sad that we are moving away but I can't hesitate to recommend Niki enough - she's a star and any child (and mum) is very privileged to have her as their childminder.
Holmes from Leeds on Danielle, 25 Feb 2017
My 3 and 5 year old very crazy boys absolutely loved it with Danielle. She made them feel so welcome and like an extension of her own family.
She was happy to support with completing reading and homework and this was made into something the boys wanted to do rather than a battle!!
She even managed to fill them up (no small feet!) and provided a wide range of healthy and satisfying home cooked treats.
I will be using her again and couldn't recommend her more highly. She genuinely cares and is great with kids.
Amelia from Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames on Paula McMillan, 25 Feb 2017
Cameron has been with Paula since December 2016 and we are very happy with the care she is providing. From the start, leaving Cameron with Paula was like leaving him with family. She sends us regular updates and photos throughout the day, and does a range of activities with the children indoors and outside. Since Cameron has been with Paula I have seen him flourish under her care, and he is learning new skills quickly. Paula and her family have a close relationship with all the children and Cameron is always happy to see them all when we drop him off. I would absolutely recommend Paula as a childminder.
Tahmina from Manchester on Tarinzzz, 25 Feb 2017
I needed childcare for my 20 month old daughter who i had never left with anyone before. I was very apprehensive as to how my daughter would respond with a childminder, however, Tarin made me feel very welcome and relaxed from the first meeting onwards and i am so happy to say that my daughter settled in really well there. I would definitely recommend Tarin as a childminder who knows what she's doing.
