Maya helps look after my baby boy in the afternoon.She has really developed a good connect with him over a few weeks.She is very punctual and proactively does tasks when baby is sleeping.I feel relaxed owing my little one is safe with her.Keep up the great work !!
Zehra is truly amazing. My daughter was with her for few months and we have decided to move abroad. We are really sad as we had found the perfect place for her. It is a friendly and spacious environment, the garden is also quite big, with lots of toys. She plans lots of activities during the day.
I was always really confident when leaving my baby there as I know she would be well looked after. The food is homemade and my daughter felt like at home. She is also very accommodating and helpful.
I Highly recommend Zehra as she ticks all boxes!!! That is a shame we had to move abroad :-(
I highly recommend Lynn, shes a lovely lady with a big heart, not to mention how great she is with children, extremely dedicated patient and caring. My daughter went to Lynn not talking much and very shy. Now she is talking and not shy. Her motor skills and language have well improved. My daughter is always happy to see her and so am I. She comes home clean and fed and is well looked after. Lynn is very flexible and worked with me on what was best for Sofia and was very supportive. I go to work with my mind at ease. she is the right choice for your kids. I am so pleased that my daughter has her as a carer.

Daisy has looked after our little girl who is 3.5 for about a year now and she is part of the family. She’s great at organising play dates with other kids, takes her to local parks/stay and plays or local libraries, goes swimming. Over the summer she went out strawberry picking and also popped over to London zoo a couple of times. She’s also helped out with countless nights of babysitting etc. She helps get her ready for bedtime with bathtime, preps dinner for her and is never late. I’d recommend!
Steph looked after our two young daughters (ages 3 and 1) this year alongside her young son. She is honestly one of the best childcare providers I’ve ever met. She’s sensible, grounded, so very kind and caring whilst being a fun and creative person for children to be around. The thought that goes into holiday activities or rainy day activities is amazing as well as healthy meals & snacks. She’s organised and meticulous and very professional. Thoroughly recommend her!
My son has been going to Sherita for over a year now. She’s been absolutely great with him and making him feel comfortable in her home. He is my first so leaving him with anyone was scary.
My son is a little delayed in some areas and sherita has been really good at understanding and working with me together as a team! I would recommend sherita to everyone as she’s really open to how you’d like to try things with your child but also has great suggestions too. Thank you sherita for all your support x
Where would we be without Tamsin and Chris. Nothing is too much trouble for them! They have made going back to work so seamless after extended paternity leave. Our daughter not only settled in very quickly, she is thriving in their care.
Tamsin is not ‘just a childminder’ she is a childcare specialist who is extremely passionate about what she does and delivers high quality care. Her continual professional development portfolio is very impressive and demonstrates her willingness to learn about new practices. We wouldn’t want our daughter to go to anyone else!
From the very beginning Katie has been brilliant. Not only has she provided a setting that my children feel comfortable in, she has put me at ease as a first time childminding service user. She is very knowledgeable and has an abundance of experience of working with children, which really shines through in the way in which she interacts with the children. She keeps updated daily with photos and information about my child's day (including when he uses the toilet!) Her setting is homely, helping my children feel safe and comfortable, so much so they ask me if Katie can take them to school every day! I couldn't reccomend Katie enough she provides an excellent service and is an amazing childminder.

Rosemary came the day after we returned from the hospital and spent several days with us in the first couple of weeks teaching the basics from breastfeeding to bathing.
She helped not only to set routine for baby but also to build my confidence as a new mom.
She is trustworthy, very experienced and approachable. Every baby is different. We very much appreciate her support from the beginning.
my daughter holly is very fond of sarah, she is an outstanding childminder, took my daughter out on plenty of day out to the park and lot of fun and learning new thing my 4 year old came on leap and bounds with Sarah.
I would happily leave my 7month old in her care as she is a fab childminder and looked after the children extremely well.
my daughter love spending the 2 days a week with Sarah playing colouring and she love Sarah cooking.
i would highly recommend sarah
Julie has been providing excellent child care for me for some years for both of my children. My son (youngest) has recently flown her nest, which has been somewhat of an odd experience for him.
I can say that without the superb provision of Julie's care, management, patience (bailed me out more times than I care to mention) and organisation, my two would be very different people.
I can recommend Julie, and her colleague Gemma, to the highest level, providing first class care and support for your children comes as a basic for them. You, or more precisely, your children would be in safe and experienced hands.

My Daughter has been with Gem & Jade for nearly two years now she loves going to them. They go above and beyond for her providing lots of activities throughout her day with regular updates on how she is doing in regards to her development she has come on massivley since being with them! There setting is lovely with lots of toys and a huge garden its like a mini nursery. They have also been very flexible to accommodate my shifts each week.
I honestly cannot reccommend them enough I felt as ease straight away with them.
Thank you so much for everything x
Choosing somebody to care for the most precious thing in your world is almost impossible however leaving our son with Ronay was an easy decision. Ronay & her home is so welcoming that you instantly feel at ease & therefore so does your child.
Our son was with Ronay 2 days a week from when he was 6 months old until he started school in September. Ronay has helped ensure that our son was ready for the biggest change in his life. She has helped him develop all the skills he needs for the next stage in his development including basic numeracy & literacy including appreciation of stories, knowing letters, basic writing skills & possible even more importantly helped him become a confident, social & well rounded little person. We never had any tears at drop off on Ronay days.
I guess the only downside to your child being with Ronay is your child will idolise her almost as much as they idolise you!

We had Lorraine to help us during summer time for childcare and pick ups. She was reliable, trustworthy and cared for the kids well. My son can be quite a handful and she's managed to get him to follow orders. I would recommend to anyone considering her for a nanny / babysitting job. Shame we couldn't have her for longer but would take her back if she needed extra job!

Her profile and the initial communication was great! She seemed to be the perfect nanny! Scheduled to meet last Saturday - just went silent - not read any of my messages nor returned my phone call. Strange we thought! Next day got a text message explaining what happened to her Saturday, asked to re-arrange for an interview, we said yes. thought give her the benefit of the doubt. She proposed Sunday morning or Sunday early afternoon (basically that same day), we replied morning is better for us. Not replied after that nor read the message. Chased her again, but nothing. Don't waste your time or breath on this one. Will just keep your hopes up and then let you down.

I am very please with the childcare Zoe provides to my son. Zoe made the transition very easy for both my son and myself. Unlike nursery, Zoe will implement any strategy that you do with your child at home in her home which is very helpful as it provides consistency. Zoe’s set up is amazing, it’s very clean and her garden is amazing. Lots of resources for kids to open up their imagination to get a understanding of the world. Zoe is also very active she takes the kids playgroup and swimming on a Friday Her home is very inviting and homely. If your looking for a child-minder then look no further you won’t be disappointed
We couldn’t recommend Lisa enough. Her warm and welcoming nature and her love for her job makes for a wonderfully positive environment for kids. She loves the kids in her care like her own and is so accommodating of each of their needs.
She puts a lot of effort into age appropriate activities that are not only fun but also educational and we have seen how much our son has learnt in just 4 short months.
Lisa is also great at keeping us updated on both the good and the bad so we always feel confident we know how each day has gone. We particularly love receiving a daily update pic and looking through his quarterly learning journal.
It is a joy to see how excited our son is to see Lisa every morning and we couldn’t imagine him in anyone else’s care.
