I have been using Sarah for a while now and it was running smoothly, until august this year my daughter attended the setting and I witnessed Sarah at the local park with all the children she had in that day however my daughter was absent. My daughter was left in the care of someone else who yet is still unknown. After addressing the situation with Sarah she acted in such an unprofessional manner, I’ve unfortunately had to take this matter further as it’s regarding a child! I really hope people approach this lady with care, please ensure you do your research when looking for a professional childminder.

Both of my girls attend Alexander House Nursery since April this year and they cannot be happier. Their English language and communication skills has improved so much. The best part of the day is home time when they reveal all of the exciting things they got up to during the day. They've got little friends and they absolutely love their teachers!
Caroline is amazing, she has had my daughter since she was 10 months old to 3 years old. She is so great with her it’s like leaving her with family.
Caroline is so kind, caring and really goes the extra mile to help in any way she can. It’s more than a job for her as she adores children and really treats each child as an individual and knows them inside out. She has such a welcoming home with all the toys and activities you can think of.
As a new mum she has supported me through every milestone from going back to work, to teething, toilet training, weening her off naps, she has done it all. I can’t thank her enough for all her kindness and hard work. If you meet with her it will alleviate any concerns you may have and it will make your decision so much easier as there is no faulting her.

Nadjia arrived on time and was able to jump in and look after my children on the spot. She has a very calming and warm personality. As a very experienced mother herself she is well organised and able to follow a routine we had in place. For emergency babysitting, she charged £14 per hour.
We have worked with Aimee for some time, initially in a nursery setting and lately as a private nanny in our home. She is highly attentive to the needs of the child, and the entire family. Her experience is wide and deep and we have benefited from her kind and supportive learning for our child for some years. The 121 attention our child has received in the home has been hugely beneficial to his development.
Aimee is highly organised, very trustworthy, always punctual and very accommodating to anything asked of her.
She has been brilliant in supporting our child’s development, even through the challenging lockdowns of late, and finds new and engaging ways of delivering learning through play, tasks and adventures inside and outside the home.
Aimee also takes the well-being of a child very seriously applying a holistic approach of learning, good nutrition and lots of outdoor play and activity (even in the rain!)
We hope to continue working with Aimee as our child transitions to school, and would highly recommend her to any family looking for a kind, attentive, and experienced nanny.
Paula is a great childminder, she provides excellent care for the children, her own daughters are lovely and caring towards the little ones, always happy and smiling.
We used Paula for wrap around care and my daughter loved going there as there were always lots of toys to play with, she was well looked after and I didn’t have to worry about anything.
There was always great communication from Paula, lots of pictures and the kids were always happy.
We highly recommend Paula to anyone

Our son was cared for by Karra 4 days a week for 2 years and we (him included) couldn’t have been happier. After only a short period of time he was fully settled to the point he would be asking in the morning to go to Karra’s house, walking in without looking back at drop off. Often out on adventures or doing a wide range of activities in the house, we were always updated with what they had been up to each day with plenty of photos provided so we could see how much he was enjoying himself. He developed so much through this time, thanks to the wonderful environment that Karra has created. Having now started pre-school, he still asks to go to Karra’s house! If you are looking for somewhere to send your child we would highly recommend Karra's Caterpillars!.
Our little boy was with Sam for 4 years from 10 months old.
Sam and her family provided such a caring and safe home from home. Our son was with Sam for three days a week and enjoyed every second of it.
Sam would keep us updated on a very regular basis on what our son had been upto. Sending him home every few months with a learning journal packed with photos of their adventures to a range of play groups, parks and even trips to the beach.
Sam provides a safe and caring environment where the children learn through play and even helped to prepare our son with what to expect when starting school.
Our little boy is a little fussy eater and Sam was very accommodating with his needs and would make sure that she prepared meals on his days that he would eat. He even preferred a number of meals that Sam cooked to ones I would cook at home.
I can’t thank Sam enough for the 4 years.
Amazing childminder 100%
Subha is a great childminder.
For us the best thing about her was that once we had dropped off our son, we were completely at ease knowing he was in safe hands and well cared for.
She has been the driving force behind his potty training and we were very reliant on her knowledge and experience.
We would strongly recommend Subha and her team as our youngest son was a happy boy with her.
Subha was also brilliant with our oldest school aged son who always looked forward to going to hers during holidays and we are very much looking forward to carrying this on going forward.
My son has been with Christine in her setting for the past 2 years and has thrived whilst there. He was always happy to go and Christine did/does so much with the children. He was always coming home with things that he had made that day and telling me about his visits to the park and soft play. Christine is absolutely lovely and has been invaluable to us, I will be forever grateful for the love and support she has shown my children and me over these last 2 years. My son has now started primary school but we miss Christine and will be sure to come back and visit through the holidays.
Paula is very welcoming and has made me feel at ease leaving my daughter in Paula's care. she provides many activities which my daughter loves, she takes my daughter out daily visiting the local area. Paula provides healthy home cooked meals and snacks, my daughter always looks forward visiting Paula's setting.
My little one loved her time with Ophelia, she always had great fun and did lots of different activities. The facilities are great, and Ophelia is warm and clearly cares for the children she looks after. Ophelia focuses on educational activities that are tailored for the developmental stage of each child. I would highly recommend!
Monique has worked for us until my baby started nursery. My baby was 4 months old when she started and we were looking for someone we could trust. She has been wonderful and our little Louise loves her. She is very knowledgeable and helped us understand babies and their routine a bit more. She has also helped us with a better sleep structure. She was always available, wether it was to go away or come and look after Louise on a last minute evening.

Sophia and Bella are wonderful and very professional at looking after babies and toddlers. Jasper was 15 months when he started here and he really grew and enjoyed each time he went. The only reason we had to leave is because we are moving to Essex. I highly recommend.

First time we had Chathu when my some was 11 month and she became a part of our family And my son loved to be with her the moment he met her.
And my little one knows his alphabets , can speak can sing can do everything which his aunt Chathu has thought him. He will wait for her every day . The day she is not in he will ask for her. He will do his craft work play games, sing , dance , go out for walk.
Navreet is the best gift I could give my son I believe . She will not hesitate helping me if I need help with some ironing and washing clothes she is perfect in everything she does.
Thankyou so much Chathu for all you have been to is and for my son. You are awesome .I don't think I would have found a better Nanny than you ever.
Lisa and her family have been an integral part of making our settlement into the UK a success! My daughter was not coping in a nursery school environment after the move and Lisa has managed to settle her in the very best way. She is a content and happy little girl again and is excited to go to Lisa each morning. Lisa exudes love and care for our whole family and goes above and beyond to make our lives easier. My daughter has learned so much in the past 3 months with Lisa and her development is noticeable each day. A wonderful and nourishing environment!
Sue has been tutoring my 7 year old grandson for the past 2 months and I can highly recommend her. He has had many difficulties learning at infant school. Sue was very quick to work out the best approach with him and as soon as she walks in the door he is very keen to learn. Whilst making learning fun she has also achieved very good progress with him and his confidence is much improved. Sue is a dedicated, caring teacher but is also firm with my grandson. I can highly recommend her as a tutor.
Zarina has been my daughter's nanny for a year now. When we first met her it was clear that she was the best person we could ask for: amazing experience both, professionaly and personaly (she is a mum of 5 herself!).
My daughter was not used to stay with other people as we are from abroad and with all the Pandemic she did not socialised much, but she has a connection with Zarina since the very first moment - I could not believe how happy she was without us around her.
She also knows all the parks and playgroups so they will be at a different one every day, making her routine very dinamic.
A lovely, reliable and responsible person to take care of your kids without a doubt!
