Here are some of the latest reviews that we have received from parents who have used childcare providers and tutors listed on Childcare.co.uk.
Little Foxes have looked after my children for over 8 years now and they have loved attending, infact it's going to be so sad for me when my eldest is too old to go for after school club as it's the end of a very happy era. The staff are so caring and respectful of the children and actively encourage them to explore through play, be kind to their peers and have fun. They spend most of their time outside enjoying the environment and having some epic adventures with the staff. The whole place just oozes caring and happy times. Thank you LF, you are amazing!
We had a lovely experience with Lovelylo and her wee one, who she gave us the option of her bringing along. We were really stuck for childcare one Friday, and she came along to our house and was so flexible. She has a very calm nature which is conveyed to little ones. She gained good rapport with our wee boy, and he was lucky to have a play friend for the day. I felt reassured knowing that she was a mother herself, in regards to keeping a busy toddler safe and happy! Overall a good experience.

We have been with Laura for over a year and she has gone above and beyond to look after our little boy.
He’s had the most amazing time with her, they go on many outings to the park, soft play, Willows Farm and even to the beach.
He has so many resources to help him develop and we are constantly kept updated with his progress. She provides home cooked meals and it’s all fragile prepared. The menu is excellent with plenty of choices and nutritional with different varieties.
I had 3 childminders since my daughter was born and since she is with Mamley I do not want to take to some else.
She cook nice meals, is a caring person and encouraging her to well behave.
She also make nice activities for the children's.
I couldn't be more happy.
My children were really happy to go to Komal. She does various activities to keep their minds busy. My 10 year old and 5 year old both enjoyed a lot. While she gives them opportunity to do free play, they are in a very disciplined environment where they follow a schedule. She does indoor and outdoor activities and sometimes includes local walks which is so refreshing for the kids.Though I had to send packed lunch, but she always warmed it and served them properly. Along with it she provided fruits and yoghurt to the kids which is included in her package as a bonus. She does lots of age related activities. She encouraged my 5 year old to do activities that included phonics.I feel completely at peace of mind when i am at work and my kids are with Komal. I know they are safe and sound. I am glad that she looks after my children during holidays.She is doing a great job!
My son has really settled well at TKs Klubhouse. He has bonded well with his minder and he enjoys exploring his environment. He feels relax and happy at TKs Klubhouse and enjoys going to the park and other exciting places with his Minder. All his needs are cared for and his well looked after. Would recommend TKs Klubhouse😘😘😘
Steph is awesome she looked after my little boy for a year. She always went above and beyond my expectations. It in not always easy to leave your child however with Steph’s friendliness and caring nature she always put my mind at ease. My son adored her. I would highly recommend her as a childminder.
The whole staff was so professional and confident that I didn't have to worry about my daughter's settling in in her new environment, although she was not speaking a word of English when she first started the Christchurch Montessori Preschool. She really enjoyed going to the Preschool, making new friends and learning so many new things - and a brand new language. Her teachers always encouraged her to be an "autonomous individual" and she became confident enough to do so many things by herself. The staff informed me about all stages of her development and I always felt welcome to discuss about my questions or worries. Whole team was always very open and helpful. I couldn't thank them more for all the love, care and effort they put for my daughter.
Nilam has been looking after my daughter after school for me for a few months now. It was my first time using a childminder and quite apprehensive but Nilam instantly put me at ease. My daughter has had a blast with Nilam and i highly recommend her to anyone. She takes my daughter out after nursery and provided other activities including water play, arts and crafts which my daughter loves! Thank you for everything, Nilam!
This lady is SO good with children. Shes looked after my daughter for a short while but in that short amount of time shes came on and developed so much. She takes the children on lovely days out and is always putting a smile on their little faces :) I couldn't recommend her enough to be honest shes one of a kind and if I ever have more children in the future shes definitely my number one childminder I'd go too.
Thank you so much carla for everything you've done for us you've been the BEST and we will miss you so much.
We will no doubt be popping in too see you when lucy has started school :)
My son came to Jane after being unhappy at a nursery. He settled quickly and really developed his speech and language quickly. He is now a confident and happy boy who has been challenged and taught well. Jane has a wealth of experience of caring for children with a wide range of needs and was really adaptable and caring towards my son. He really enjoyed their many outings and he made some great friends along the way. Jane has high expectations of the children and makes learning fun and tailored towards the children's interests. I would highly recommend Jane.

Kayleigh is looking after my 1,5 year old daughter ones or twice a week and I feel very lucky I found her. As I work in the evenings Alma is staying in Kayleigh's house for the afternoon until my partner (her dad) can pick her up after his work. It works perfectly - it's great there are two other children in the house so Alma has got fun and company all the time and plays in full swing from the start to the end. There is not much fuss when I drop her there - last time a little protesting whimper then sticked arms up to Kayleigh for a cuddle, got her attention grabbed by water bottle on the mantelpiece and I was forgotten. And when picking her up it's more like 'well I'm glad you are here but I'm bit busy at the moment '
Communication is quick and easy and I got immediate updates when something is happening. Very happy parent and baby too :)
Both my little boys have been with Tracy and Christine since they were nine months. Making a decision to choose your childcare is massive and choosing these two was the best decision we’ve ever made! They love their children like their own and create a real home from home atmosphere:) I leave the boys everyday knowing they are going to have an amazing time and are given the best opportunities which some other childcare providers wouldn’t be able to offer! They go the extra mile to support their families and the flexibility they have given us has been above and beyond:) children thrive developmentally when they are happy and in the right care and these two certainly provide that:) what more could you ask for we just don’t want them to leave!
My 3 year old started Gants Hill playschool In jan 2019.i was very concerned as he was very clingy and had never stayed with anyone other than me or his father.But as many of my friends and family had recommend this play school after sending their own children, I decided to go ahead and give it a go.WELL! With the help of the lovely Nihan and her gentle approach he settled in after a short time and loved it From then on.The staff are approachable and caring.the recommendation was so strong that I traveled from another borough, but it was sooo worth it.Im sad he no longer goes there, but I know he has benefited and will have an easier time adapting to school nursery in sept.It almost felt as if I was dropping him off to a family member, I felt so confident and comfortable that he was in the greatest hands.Dawn was also so very attentive and caring she will be missed too.We have nothing but positive thoughts about this setting and all the staff in it.

We have always felt happy and secure leaving our 1 year old son in Mandy's care this year. Her wealth of experience and sense of humour and fun have really allowed him to thrive. He has always been cheerful, well-fed and well-rested after a day will Mandy and has really developed in confidence as a result of his time with her. We have been so impressed by the different experiences Mandy has been able to offer - trips to the park and zoo, art and cooking activities to name a few. Thank you Mandy for looking after our son with so much love and kindness, he will really miss you!
Teri is absolutely brilliant with children!
She has a natural ability to connect to children and join in their play instantly, she even won our shy 2.5 year old over right away. He has had so much fun with her, he even asked for her every weekend.
Our 10 year old often joined in the play, as well as our 6 month old, who lit up every time she came to our house. She has an amazing ability to engage all ages at the same time, and brought so many fun activities we wouldn't have thought of ourselves. We've always felt safe leaving our children with her as well as letting her take them out of the house.
If you are looking for a nanny I can't recommend Teri enough.

When I first brought my son to this nursery, I wasn’t really sure as it is a new nursery and there’s no word of mouth as usual. I decided to try it and see how it goes but since we’ve been going, I’ve never looked back. He’s been able to make friends and always looking forward to going. This nursery is very secured with 24 hours CCTV camera at every angle. Very clearly spoken and communicative staff member and very spacious. My son is happy there and cos of that I am too.
I am a single parent of 4 gorgeous boys and I returned to work when my fourth was 6 month old and contacted sara and arranged a meeting. Everything is professional up to date protocols, safeguarding/health and safety is to the highest standards/priority. My 8 yr old and baby now 2 love Sara Rachael Sophie Emma Spence toby.
I know my children are looked after and kept safe and that means the world to me and my boys, they are monitored and encouraged to be independent, work as a team and 100% playing kind.
Great location easy to find and can access via local bus or car. Newsletters and weekly rotas updated via WhatsApp of events/educational learning tools that all children learn through play.
Can’t thank everyone enough !! We love you all and a massive thank you for your continued support !!
