Great childminder

My son (5) and daughter (2) have been in Claire’s childcare for the past year. Claire has provided a warm and caring environment for my children and is very flexible when extra care is required. Claire has a wonderful, clean playroom for the children to play and do activities and a fun garden with lots of things for the children to do. My children really enjoy being looked after by Claire, and enjoy the many things they do outside of the playroom, such as local playgroups, parks and trips to nearby soft plays. Claire was flexible with school pick up when my son’s school finished before the other one, however it is much easier now all the schools finish at the same time. Claire also drops the children off at home when I am home from work which makes it easier at the end of the day. My son also loves going to Claire’s after school and playing with all the amazing toys! Claire also provides a snack after school. When my daughter goes to nursery, Claire has been flexible with the changed hours. My daughter loves Claire and she has become an important part of my daughter’s life.

Couldn’t find anyone better!

This is the second time round now that Reena is looking after my child.
5 years ago my oldest son went to her and now my youngest son also does and that is because I know I couldn’t find anyone better than her.

Her setting is well equipped and the children do a variety of activities on a daily basis but are also very fortunate to be taken on lots of outings to the park, soft play and even to museums. Whether it be indoors or out Reena ensures that the children have a fun filled day every day.

My son wakes up on a morning and begs to go to Reena’s house and for a mother that just shows how happy the children are with her. They are fed home cooked meals and she caters to any dietary requirements.

Reena is so passionate about what she does and this shows day in day out. She truly cares for each and every child that comes to her and treats them as her own.
I certainly could not imagine my life without her and I know both my sons would say exactly the same!

Above and beyond

Helen had looked after my son for the last 6-7 months. Helen is really excellent at ensuring the kids are not only having fun but also ensuring they are always actively learning and developing through play. The activities she comes up with look so much fun and my son is always really happy to run through the door when he arrives. They all go on regular outings and I love getting updates of where they have been and what they’ve been up to. Helen has a great range of toys, games and books which have been chosen to help the kids learn through play and develop new skills. Helen is always keeping a close eye on each child’s development and raises any concerns and puts plans in place to help where necessary which I believe to be above and beyond what I’d expect from Childminder. I’d definitely recommend to anyone looking for a childminder!

Great, Friendly & Caring Childminder

Sheila is a very warm, caring and friendly childminder who treated our daughter as one of her own. Sheila looked after our daughter from the age of 1. Our daughter really loved the time she spent with Nanny Sheila and she often asks of her even now that she has left. Sheila took her to weekly softplay sessions and also on visits to the local library and had a number of indoor activities set up for the kids. We were happy with the care provided and would recommend her childcare services to anyone enquiring.

Night nanny

I hired Maria to look after our 4 1/2 months old baby in the evening & at night when my husband was abroad. I was very satisfied with her work. I have noticed that she was very dedicated to the wellbeing of my child and she came over to me as very experienced with babies. She is respectful to different family systems and cultures. For me as a parent she was lovely to have around and silent at night. I will definitely hire her again next time.

Amazing and trustworthy.

Patricia is an incredible and trustworthy.
She is taking care of my little girl and I will always prefer her to look after my child.
She has become a part of my family now.
I love her care for child and how she makes you feel comfortable. I really appreciate when She helps with little household work and try to keep things tidy whenever gets time. She always keep me updated if I am away from my little one by sending photos and videos which is very satisfying.
PS.She never stops helping you in any ways she can.

Fantastic sitter, highly recommended

We used Aimee to babysit our two (5 and 9) year olds for a Saturday night and she was great - communicated really well before the evening and the kids loved playing with her. She even brought activities for them which was amazing! Would definitely contact her again and highly recommend her services :-)

Amazing childminder

My daughter recently started with Rowina and she has been amazing in helping my daughter settle in, this is the first time I have left my daughter and she has attended to her every need my daughter is very particular with things and nothing has been too much, I am kept up too date with everything and even pictures throughout the day especially if she’s had a rocky start, I was nervous about letting someone else watch her but they have put me at ease I would highly recommend her to anyone needing a childminder also the perfect setup you can see every child adores them - Briony

Kind, caring and responsible nanny

Maria has cared for my firstborn daughter from the age of 3 months through to 7 months. I have nothing but positive views on her - she is responsible, professional and reliable, but more importantly she genuinely cared deeply for my daughter and I fully trusted Maria's care in my absence (both myself and my husband work long hours). I always felt comfortable that Maria had my daughters best interest at heart and that my daughter would always be safe in her care. Would highly recommend Maria, especially for younger babies.

Passionate about teaching but unreasonable & rude

I’ve described my experience below; using factual evidence (i.e. from emails/texts/WhatsApps) should it be denied or disputed.

The trial lesson went well, she was passionate about teaching and I was keen to proceed.

My profile/advert/message had said that I was looking for a tutor for Tuesday and Friday evenings although alternative times could be discussed. Based on her availability, we agreed on Tuesdays and Saturdays. She offered to discount her fees, I took her up on her offer and suggested 20%, and she agreed.

Her Ts&Cs said lessons were to be paid for a minimum of 24 hours in advance. I said I wasn’t OK with the advanced payment and could pay immediately after each lesson by online transfer and she agreed. Her Ts&Cs also said that cancelled/missed sessions are non-refundable. Her Ts&Cs also said that she had a grace period of 15 minutes, that if the student did not show up after 15 minutes then it would count as a missed session and would be charged in full and no refund would be offered.

I said I was ready to commit to the discussed hours until further notice and had no intention of cancelling any lessons; that I never did with our previous tutor whom we worked with for 15 months. I said that however, life happens and her terms needed to accommodate situations where the client had no choice but to cancel a lesson. I said I could agree to the following “Each party agrees to give the other party 30 days' notice of the cancellation of a lesson. The parties shall collaborate to reschedule the lesson for a date and time that is suitable for both parties. In the event that a suitable date and time is not agreed upon, the lesson shall be deemed as permanently cancelled and will not be charged for. Should the student be late for a lesson, the lesson shall proceed from the time that the student is available to join. The tutor shall not be obliged to extend the lesson to make up for the lost time.”

Her reply? “If you cannot agree to my terms as they are, then you are more than welcome to find another tutor. I have already lowered my weekly pricing significantly and made amendments to my schedule to accommodate your needs. Please let me know how you would like to proceed.”

Just amazing!

Amelia came to help out at my brothers wedding as we had a 3mth old and a 17mth old and wanted some peace whilst we had dinner. We decided to book her for the whole day in the end and what a treat!
She met our eldest the day before and he loved her straight away! She was great with distracting him so as we could have space and really engaged with him all day. Not to mention looking after and feeding our smallest as well as getting both of them to nap on such a busy day! Miracle!!
I would recommend her highly! Super flexible and way to talk too.
