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.
Lynda looked after my LG full time from 6 months old when I returned to work and had her for 4 years until she started statutory school. We we're always made to feel like part of the family and my LG loved her time with Lynda. The care was always child centred and I was made to feel at ease returning to work knowing that my LG was happy and cared for daily.

I have known Laetitia and her family for a number of years and I was delighted to learn that she was a childminder when I had my daughter.
I am a nursery manager and so finding a suitable childcare provider was very important to me. Laetitia is so warming towards my little girl and all of the other children within her setting. She provides a home from home experience to the children in her care and my little girl loves going there. Laetitia is always going on outings with the children and goes to a selection of playgroups. She has lovely space for the children to play in her home and the garden is incredible. Her safety standards with the children allows me to know my child is safe and well looked after in her care. Knowing how happy my child is when in Laetitias care is priceless, and I struggle getting my child wanting to come home! An excellent setting and all round care.
I moved my daughter from a nursery to Debbie when she was around 15 months old and its the best thing I have done. Since she has been with Debbie she has come on massively and Debbie is always helping us with ideas to help her learn further. My daughter is really comfortable with Debbie and is always happy to go. Debbie does lots of activities with my daughter and goes out to play group which I get regular updates and pictures of. On several occasions Debbie has also been flexible with me due to my shift patterns which has helped me out a lot. I'm so happy to have Debbie and I can leave my daughter with her and not worry because I know how well Debbie takes care of her!

Claire is lovely my youngest has been with Claire for almost 2 years now and I couldn't fault her.
She is caring loving treats the children like her own, she does so much with the children lots of fun things and even when they stay at home for the day my daughter still comes out telling me lots of stuff she does.
I like the fact Claire provides a setting that is home from home I could not recommend Claire enough.

Our daughter has been going to Ann 3 full days a week since she was 1, and is now nearly 2 and a half. She’s developed really well during this time in her speech and social interactions, and particularly enjoys all the arts and crafts activities they do every week. Ann has also been a great support with potty training since she turned 2, supporting our same routine and approach from home to help her stay on track.

Leigh is really child focused, incorporating the childrens wishes and feelings by maintaining structure but offering the children choice.
The children have great outdoor time and positive friendships are encouraged.
The friendly nature is second to none. I would use Leigh everytime to look after my son who is 7. It's hard to find a facility that puts you at ease as a parent and where your child's needs are fully focused on. Don't know how she manages to understand the children individually while making them feel equal as a group. But she does!

I have two little girls aged 5 and 18 months and both have been cared for by casey since newborn they get so excited when they know they are going to her as it’s guaranteed fun be it craft and messy play, organised games or trips to museums or parks casey makes it fun for all the kids, she spends her own time researching fun and new things to do and learn with them, and her own kids couldn’t be better examples of polite,helpful generally lovely children. My girls love her and I feel so confident and relaxed leaving them in her care it’s like leaving them with a family member. We’re so lucky we have her around.
I have been taking my baby boy to Sharon since September for a couple of days a week and she has been fantastic. Very friendly and welcoming and easy to talk to. She's been great with getting know my baby and adapting to his needs, you can see she's really keen to get to know the children. Her own boys are lovely as well and are also great with my little one. Highly recommended by me and my baby.
I have girls, one is 8yo and the other is 3yo. My 3yo is really a very difficult one as she's really really shy despite that, Tara has been very accomodating and patient with her. With that, when my kids got home, they couldn't stop telling stories how much they enjoyed their day in Tara's place. Thank you very much for looking after my kids. 😊

I was so lucky to be introduced to Casey.
My 11 month old has been looked after by Casey for several months now and the excitement when she sees her is incredible. What mum wouldn't be happy to know their child loves their childminder this much? My daughter comes home well fed and worn out. It's so reassuring knowing I am leaving her in capable hands.
Casey's other children are all lovely, very polite and so attentive with my daughter. As my daughter is an only child I am so thankful for this additional socialising and attention. I feel as though islt has helped with her development so much too.
I really couldn't recommend Casey enough, I feel very thankful my daughter gets to be looked after by her.
Our daughter has been with Sheron since she was 8 months old, she is now 4 and adores her. Sheron always has days planned and always something new and fun for the kids to do. There are plenty of toys, games, and educational things also in her home which is comforting. Sheron has helped us with potty training, eating habits, social skills as well as a huge input in who our daughter is today. I highly recommend sheron to anyone who is looking for a childminder. Thank you for everything sheron. X
Sheri is a fantastic nanny. She has been looking after our son (now 3 years old) for 2 days a week for just over 18 months. She is warm, patient, and caring and our son is always very excited when she arrives at the house. Sheri does a wide variety of activities with our son, and regularly takes him to the park, the library, swimming pool and playgroups. She is very reliable, always on time, and really tidy. We are so pleased to have her as our son's nanny, he really loves spending time with her and is always calm and relaxed when we get home.
Veronique, or Neek, as she became affectionately known to our son, is an exceptional childminder. Not only did she entertain, amuse and nurture our son, Rabbie, from the age on 11 months, but she also helped to teach him valuable lessons. For example, he is extremely safety conscious on busy roads and understands sharing really nicely.
Veronique also gave valuable advice and often we worked together on behaviour issues, new phases or difficult times. My son saw Neeks as a home from home, which was really important to me as I was returning to work. Another amazing thing is that you get photos and texts all throughout the day to keep you updated on progress.. Sometimes, Rabbie would be upset when I left him and Veronique would send a happy picture of him 10 mins after I left, which was in my phone by time I got to work, which was hugely appreciated as a first time mum.
I have to say that we all had a great relationship and couldn't recommend her highly enough.
Sarah has been providing childcare for us at our house for our 22 month old son, and at times our 3 year old daughter as well. Sarah is very friendly, helpful, and approachable. She takes great interest in the kids, and does a lot of varied activities with them, including inventive arts and crafts! She was keen to understand our approach with the kids and to tailor her approach to fit. Sarah has also been very thoughtful in helping us out with housework, and involving the kids in cooking things for us, which they really enjoy!
Michelle has looked after our son since he was 7 months old, he is now nearly 2 and a half. She has been there at every corner offering advice and keeping track of his development. She always let's us know what he has been up too throughout the day. Michelle is always out and about doing different activities. She does learning activities and has helped get our son ready for nursery/preschool next year. I would strongly recommend Michelle as a child minder.
Sharon, Where to start, there are no words to describe the love and care this lady gives. Just all round genuinely fantastic. From been a 2nd Mum to my children, to a councillor, and mentor for me. You can always speak to Sharon in confidence about any worries you have. All 3 of my children have been with Sharon over the years my eldest now been 8, they have all come on leaps and bounds and it amazes me what they learn on a day to day basis. Defiantly a A*.
Literally the best! Dani really is everything you could wish for in a childminder and more. From days out to activities, baby sign and personalised books to help with language amongst many,many other things she really does have everything covered. My son has learnt so much whilst in Dani's care whilst I am safe in the knowledge that she treats him like one of her own providing a safe, comforting, clean and stimulating environment for him to learn and grow. Couldn't recommend anyone more!
