Top notch childcare

Excellent childminder in a beautiful setting.
Everything you could want and more for your children of any age to develop in a very nurturing and home from home enviroment.
Holly instantly put us as a family at ease, meeting both our childrens individual needs to a T. We have been nothing but impressed with Hollys care provided, the children have fun filled yet educational days at Hollys.
No hesitation in highly recommending Holly to anyone seeking 5* childcare.
The children absolutely love a day at
"Hollys home."

good quality, flexible childcare

Lindsley helped me out when I needed childcare on a temporary basis when staying at my parents while moving back from abroad. She looked after my two sons aged 18 months and nearly 6. She is very kind and friendly and the kids were happy to go to her house, enjoying lots of activities, such as trips to the park, playing in the garden, in the swimming pool, sandpit, crafts and making slime, which was particularly popular!

She was flexible on timings and was able to add extra mornings in at short notice.

If I was going to highlight any areas for improvement it would probably be that she could be stricter with serving healthy food, she gave my elder son a choice of what to eat, so he of course, said he didn't eat fruit and vegetables, although he will eat them when not given any option!

Very good childminder

My son has been going to mo’s for a few months now and he has quickly adapted to mo and her family’s home. He loves going to mo’s every Saturday and can’t wait to go back.

Excellent care

I have been using Cotema’s childcare services since July and she offers excellent care to my baby girl. Cotema is extremely thorough, and ensures my little one is looked after well. Her setting is always tidy and my child’s safety is her priority. I feel comfortable leaving my little one there as Cotema would send updates to me from time to time. Overall a fantastic experience.

Excellent babysitter!

We approached Zoe whilst looking for a babysitter to look after our 5 children. We arranged in advance for the children to meet Zoe which enabled them to feel comfortable. I send a couple of messages giving a breakdown of the children's routine which helped the children stick to their bedtimes!

Zoe arrived on time, happy and prepared for the evening ahead! The children warmed instantly even went 'a little' hyper which Zoe was absolutely fine with!

I had a little message from Zoe during the evening to update me which put my mind at ease. When we returned home, Zoe gave us a quick breakdown of how the evening went which topped off a fantastic night!

Will certainly be contacting Zoe for our next evening out! Fantastic babysitter 😊

home from home environment x wonderful childminder

Kelly was wonderful, she even insisted on meeting me and my Son beforehand so he felt comfortable. What I liked was the space available for older children to relax and chill whilst the smaller children were happy playing. Kelly really has a lovely warm persona and would make any child feel comfortable and loved. She was always smiling every time she opened the door and was bubbly and always in control of the whole situation. I would recommend her services to anyone looking for a stable home from home.

Jazz is wonderful!

Jazz is absolutely wonderful. My little girl adores her and doesn’t stop talking about her time with her when she comes home. She is great with children and often takes them out for various activities and exploring fun ways to learn new things. I would totally recommend her and use her again.

Great with kids

Lubna has been my daughter's childminder for 6 months and i am happy with the care she has provided. My daughter enjoys going to Lubna's house and playing with Lubna's daughter, she's more confident, enjoys going to the park, painting, writing and learning numbers. Lubna is great with kids and provides activities to suit each child to help their development and keeps me updated of all her activities. I have peace of mind when my daughter is at Lubna's house and although we will be moving soon, she and her daughter will be missed.

Amazing childminder!!

We couldn’t be happier with Linda. She is super kind and thoughtful, and our daughter adored her from the very first moment. Linda has treated our daughter as one more member of her family, and that means a lot for us, making us feel super confident everyday. And, she always keeps us updated with the activities of the day ;)
Linda is starting a new project at home as a childminder, and has prepared a beautiful summer house in the garden, that provide a great environment for the kids. Honestly, we couldn’t recommend her enough!!

I absolutely love this nursery and can't thank the staff enough for the care they have provided to my son over the last 12 months. Since starting at the nursery at 12 months he has had the same caregiver assigned to him and excelled with his development and thrived in such a warm nurturing environment. Big shout out to Atlanta, Tina, Tara and the two Lisa's your doing an amazing job!

Fantastic Professional Childcare

My Daughter has been with Marianne and Michael's Babydoll childcare since she was 10mths old and she's now almost 5 and off to School in September.

Prior to sending her to Babydoll, myself and my wife met with multiple providers in the area and though all were very good ultimately it was the setting and professionalism of Marianne and Michael which made us opt for them and I'm glad we did as our daughter has now been with them for over 4 years and absolutely loves both the setting and all the friends she has there.

One thing that stood out from the offset was that all the children were well behaved and well mannered which is down to Marianne and Michael running a tight ship and expecting no nonsense and it was these traits that were important to myself and my wife..... and the children having fun as well.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend both Marianne and Michael and I will be continuing to use their childcare services for the foreseeable future.

Au Pair Feedback

When Teresa responded to our posting for an Aupair, it was clear she had limited experience but we took a chance on her as she seemed quite motivated. However, she demonstrated difficulty in following simple instructions, house rules, maintaining personal hygiene and basic hygiene standards in the care of a toddler and a five year old. She is quite determined but has a lot to learn for the future especially when it comes to understanding how to interact with children, using appropriate language and influencing them. We wish her good luck in her future endeavours.

Highly recommended

We were searching for full time childcare for our 9 month old son. We met with Alison and thought she was truly excellent. We ended up selecting nursery care but purely due to our own schedules. Our preference would have been to go with Alison, for the following reasons:

- she is clearly incredibly experienced and loves kids. There was no question that our son would be safe and looked after with Alison and her husband
- her Ofsted rating speaks for itself
- her house exudes love, and is clearly well maintained - her toy shed is epic and packed full of creative and learning toys
- she grows her own veg and gets her kids to help.

All in all it felt like we’d be leaving Jasper with the best grandma ever, who would ensure he was learning every day.

We’re a bit gutted that it didn’t work out and I still hope in the future we may be able to work with Alison, if our own commitments ease up. Highly recommended.

Best childminder !!

Marie is such a warm and welcoming lady, her home is beautiful too. My child is well cared for and I feel 100% comfortable that my child will be well looked after here. Marie's home is very child friendly with home cooked meals daily to ensure the children are well fed with nutritious foods. I highly recommend Marie and her family - peace of mind every time. Thank you for providing a dedicated service. You and your team work very hard and we are blessed to have found you. God bless xx

You won’t find anyone better!

Sandy was quite simply born to look after children. It’s her calling. She has looked after my two children for two and a half years since my youngest was 6 months old. She’s been intrinsic in their development and helped shape them into confident, emotionally intelligent and caring little people. She always puts their needs first and will think of the most creative ways of keeping them entertained and happy. She’s flexible, supportive and helpful with bags full of energy. I honestly don’t know how she gets what she does done in a day. My children love her. She and her son are part of their family. We’ll be heartbroken to see her go. And the next family who is lucky enough to have her won’t regret it. If you want someone to love, nurture, support and care for your kids when you aren’t able to - then you could find no one better.

I can’t recommend highly enough

I can’t recommend Farhiya highly enough , she looked after my son since he was 7months old till he was 2years. From the bottom of my heart I really appreciated her service, especially the times I would leave my son when he wasn’t feeling well, she took amicable care of him , your children will be in good hands with her, very reliable and a genuine love for children. Thank you again.

Finding sarah has been a God send to our little boy. Sarah is not a nanny sarah is auntie sarah.
Sarah treats our baby boy just like he is her nephew. Our boy took to sarah straight away from the moment they met. Sarah took our toddler under her wing took him for long walks different places were they had so much fun and excitement . Sarah made sure our boy was clean tidy well fed and had the best time in the world.
Sarah has been amazing even with short notice it is not a problem ,easy to talk to and always there to when even we have needed. if you are looking for the right nanny look no further you don't need to look for any one else. Sarah is not just a nanny sarah is family.. thank you so much sarah for everything you have done

Poor communication

I had the misfortune of dealing with this nursery,
It started with a lack of being able to pass on information, not been given information about your child despite asking on numerous occasions. Not kept in the loop about activities and events because I was not on the app that the nursery used, again, despite informing them of this. Waiting for my child to be collected and brought to the front door where I had been waiting 15 minutes, lost his property even though their names should have been written on as part of their policies and procedures. Was never offered a tour of the nursery. Not invited to the graduation and wouldnt have been aware of this had we not heard another parent talking about it. The list is far too long for a nursery that's suppose to have a good Ofsted report. Words fail me, I was made to feel intimidated and that they were in charge of my son while he was there. Not a nice nursery with some rude staff!!
