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.
Carol's setting is spacious and well equipped. But more importantly, the level of care she gives is wonderful. I'm particularly happy knowing the learning and development needs of my daughter are taken care of.
I happily and highly recommend her to anyone who wants a caring and nurturing place for their little hunny!
Haja has been looking after my two boys for the last 8 months now, her professional service has help my boys to read , count and improve their educational skills , my boys are acting special now at school, everyweek they are having stickers for good behaviour from their school. Thanks to the special lady Haja with her great settling and learning skills. My kids will always remember you.
Thank you Haja.
Leanne is absolutely wonderful with my little girl (20 months), Millie always comes back home happy and chatting about her day with 'LeaLea'. I'm so glad we found each other on childcare.co.uk and I couldn't imagine having anyone else look after Millie. Leanne makes a point of sending lots of photos throughout the day too, which really helps us with knowing she's ok but also what she's gotten up to and learning about. An absolute superstar who goes above and beyond for all the children, who she clearly loves to bits.

Chrissie has looked after my daughter for the past 2 and a half years (since 10 months) and I cannot rate her highly enough. She always gives us a daily update and we get photo/video updates during the day. She always ensures that they spend time out of the house either outdoors at an activity or attending local preschool groups. We get regular updates on our child’s development via an online portal including the activities that are tailor made to support Early years education and development. Chrissie also minds our older school aged daughter and equally ensures activities that keep her entertained and challenged.
Very professional service from start to finish. Coutts daycare helped me at very short notice. Excellent communication with pics of the daily activities of your child. Her surroundings ate very clean , tidy and organised. Most importantly kids are happy there. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a great childminder
My son has been with Penny since just after he turned 1, he is now about to turn 4 and he absolutely loves being in her care. Every morning he asks “are we going to Penny’s house?” (Even on the weekend 🤣). He’s my only child so I was nervous when choosing childcare, but picking Penny was by far the best decision I could have made. He’s learned so much and everyday he comes home impressing me with something new Penny has taught him...He is so confident and such a character and Penny fully encourages him to be the free spirited child and embraces him expressing his personality. Penny has so much patience and love for all the children she cares for...we love her so much, when he starts school in September we will continue with after school care...she’s not just a childminder at this point, she like part of our family.
Emma is wonderful; my 20 month old daughter was always super happy to be going to her even though it was only sporadic visits while we settled into our new home. I loved that I knew my little one was always going to be doing different activities/toddler groups/going on walks and that I was always updated with photos of her adventures 😊 I couldn’t have made a better choice with Emma - highly recommend!
Sahar was highly recommended through several of my friends. As a first time mum, I was nervous leaving my daughter for the first time. However, Sahar made me feel comfortable with the process with her professional and caring manner. My daughter has been going for minimum once a week for over a year now. She’s very friendly and my daughter took to her straight away! She always provides several activities throughout the day including sandbox, walks to the park and a room full of toys and books. Sahar sends regular photos of laila playing happily throughout the day which kept me at ease. I can’t recommend her enough!
Kath is amazing, I finally had the courage to leave my 9 month old baby to go back to work, and I couldn’t of done it with Katherine, she really is amazing, she brought him on loads and learnt him a lot of things. Katherine was amazing with him and would highly recommend to anyone. They did lots of different activities on a daily basis and he loved going there.
Angela has been looking after my son 5 days a week since he was 7 months old. It was hard leaving him at such a young age but she is absolutely amazing.. Her house is really nice and always has a sense of calm with the children happy and playing. It's so clear that she cares highly for each of the children. My son is now 22 months and he has come on so much.. Angela guides his learning through play, crafts, counting, singing etc.. My son is always happy to be dropped off there and excitedly runs up the drive.
When my Daughter first started with Marina she was very shy and wouldn't interact with others very much which is why I chose a childminder rather than a nursery. However, whilst being with Marina her confidence to interact with others came on in leaps and bounds. She loved visiting local playgroups, forest schools and learning in a such fun environment. Marina's supportive and nurturing care has turned our little girl in to a much more independent child. my Daughter enjoyed the meals and snacks which were varied and healthy.
We enjoyed receiving the daily updates on Whats App as it really put our minds at ease as it can be daunting leaving your child in the care of someone else but knowing my daughter was in safe hands allowed me to go to work more at ease.
Avril was our first foray into childcare, and she is absolutely fantastic. After a short settling in period, my then 13 month old son was always bouncingly excited when he realized we were heading for her house, and also happy when I picked him up.
Avril is warm and caring and all of the children in her care are cheerful and playful. Her home is clean and set up well for the work, with lots of organized toys, music, and fun. She takes them to various outings like soft play on a regular basis as well. She keeps and eye on their development and both works with the children and gives feedback to the parents.
We were concerned about our clingy son moving into part time childcare, but we couldn’t have asked for a better first experience than with Avril. I would highly recommend her services.
Heidi is an amazing childminder, always does so many activities with the children and takes them to all different groups every week and for day trips in the holidays. Both my children absolutely loved going to her and I felt they really had a great time with her which is important as a parent. I always felt they were in safe hands and loved receiving photos and reading learning journeys. She treats all the children as her own and really cares for them as well as being a great teacher. My girls learnt alot with her and we were all very sad to leave. If our circumstances change I would definitely take my children back.
We used Monika for 2 days (half days) and in those 2 short days we found that she was very impatient and her behaviour was very surprising and alarming for a person who claims to have such a wealth of experience with all types of children. She even went on to tell me that my 10 month old baby daughter was DISRUPTIVE and stressing the other kids out! This was very concerning to me that a person who works with children would call a baby disruptive especially also because it was the 1st day she was caring for my daughter. We instantly made the decision that she was not the right match for us. I had to tell her to calm down over the phone because she sounded so flustered -which is not what you need as a parent returning to work.
I would not recommend this child minder to anyone and personally I don't think she has enough experience, if any at all.

Rosie looked after my daughter 5 and son 7. Rosie had such a great bond with them from the offset, fun, caring, responsible and reliable. Rosie was there from 7pm until 23:30 and during that time myself and my husband were so at ease knowing how well looked after they were. We would thoroughly recommend Rosie we couldn't have asked for more.
As a parent we always look for the best for our children.
I was worried about leaving my son for first time with a childminder...but I have to say that I am really happy with Mrs Ola and the most important my son also is . He always asks about her and when he will be coming back to her house. When we come back home he is always happy.
Mrs Ola is very professional in every single aspect. She is committed regarding my son's development. She is very caring, patient, punctual, organised and charming.
If you are looking for a great person to look after your child, this is your lady. I highly recommend her.
