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.
We hired Emma to nanny our daughter who was 13 months at the time. We could not have been happier with our decision.
My daughter spent the majority of her life in lockdown and therefore was not used to new people.
Emma was very patient trying to bond with my daughter as well as taking on her particular requirements and soon enough they had a beautiful friendship.
I trusted and relied on Emma and still would consider her if I needed a nanny again.

If you’re looking to prepare for the ever demanding and challenging 11+ exams and want a personalised approach to supporting your child then I would highly recommend Eva.
These exams are very tough for young children. An enormous amount of preparation, dedication, commitment, perseverance, hard work and encouragement is required. Eva is not only able to support your child but also give you direction and advice on what you can do at home.
She is incredibly well organised and experienced. Her commitment and professionalism is remarkable. She works closely and communicates with you regularly which is great.
Eva puts in a huge amount of effort to prepare and support children. Above all, she makes the lessons fun and my child genuinely looks forward to seeing Eva.
As a parent I really admire Eva’s approach and empathy. She is so positive and absolutely lovely person.
Vicky has been the nanny of our little girl for almost two years. When she first started our daughter was 2 1/2. We would have never hoped for a better nanny. She helped our daughter learn English, increase her confidence and develop her skills. She is caring, enthusiastic and reliable and we consider her to be a member of our family. Our daughter loves her.
Hayley looks after our baby twins beautifully and is a wonderful person. She is one of just a few people (including my husband) who I would leave my children with and feel 100% comfortable and confident they would be as well looked after as if I was going it myself. 110% recommend.
We visit Twinkle Twinkle Montessori last week .I was impressed with all the safety measures: sanitizer machine, temperature taking , baby gates to all the doors.
The place was very clean, spacious, with lots of playing and learning resources.
We like MONTESSORI approach and we booked our place for summer holiday.
We are thrilled with the care that our 1 and 3 year old have received. Particularly our little one who suffered with real separation anxiety but settled in so quickly. They both run to the door which is testament to the fun they have. Communications are excellent and the activities are of great educational value. It’s a safe but loving environment that we are thrilled to have found. Highly recommend
Charlotte not only takes great care of our daughter, she takes care of us, as parents.
When my maternity was coming to an end my heart broke and my nerves were shot, the last couple of months of mat leave were agony. I was worried about leaving my baby, I thought nobody could understand how precious she was to me, but Charlotte did. Everyday my daughter was with her she would send me updates and photos, she reassured me and has been there for me when I’ve struggled with separation anxiety.
Throughout the pandemic Charlotte was still there for us, risking her family to take care of ours. She kept all her children and mindees safe and didn’t let them see that the world was crumbling. To them everything was normal. Charlotte took time and effort in every activity she planned, I even worried my daughter would be bored at home with me when she had so much fun with Charlotte.
Charlotte, I could never put into words how grateful I am for you and your family. You are one of a kind and we have been lucky to have you in our lives.
If anyone wants the best care for their little one, Charlotte is all you need.

Jenny currently looks after my daughter a day and a half a week. From the moment I messaged Jenny I knew she was the right person to care for my daughter. She was so professional and friendly.
My daughter settled in straight away and felt at ease being in Jenny’s lovely home. She looks forward to going to see her and her daughter every time.
Everyday my daughter comes home telling me about all the fun things she played and made. It’s so lovely to get all the pictures and creations she’s made with Jenny.
Communication is amazing. I get a weekly report from Jenny letting me know what my daughter has been up to and making, what she’s done that’s new, and any other information she thinks I might like to know. It’s always a highlight of my week.
I’m so pleased I found the perfect childminder for my daughter, I feel at ease leaving her there each time knowing she’ll have a great day and be so well cared for. Can’t recommend Jenny enough!
Marianne was my childminder when I was younger and when I had my own child I had no doubt in my mind who I wanted to look after him. As someone that has been in the care of Marianne and now as a parent who's child is cared for by Maz and Mike I can honestly say they are amazing. My little boy has been going for 2 years now and started at 9 months old and has grown into such a confident and clever boy and loves going every day.
bearing in mind that she could see where we live, after messaging back and forth, she then ended the conversation abruptly to say that she lives in Dunstable, thus disabling her to travel. It was disappointing because her profile mentioned that she also works for a family in London, therefore showing that she is infact capable of travelling for work. If you speak to this lady, please ask her immediately if she is able to travel, or your time will be wasted like mine.
I’ve used babydoll on and off for 15 years with my 3 children, I’ve got to say Maz and Mike are the best around, my kids like to throw a few spanner’s in the works occasionally but never fazes Maz or Mike, they just crack on!! Would 100% recommend these to anybody, you won’t be disappointed 👌👌

Marzena is amazing at what she does. She accommodates for all your needs no matter what. She is very flexible and my child absolutely loves going to her house. She makes the days/evening interesting with lots of different activities, she made my child feel comfortable and provides food too. Her house is very clean and tidy, garden is lovely. I can't thank you enough Marzena, you're an absolute star!!
We have been with Michelle and Ray for just over 6 months but due to a house move we have had to leave, they are outstanding childminders, we came to them with 3 children and they happily took them on. They have supported and cared for my children through their developments and I couldn't be happier.
My oldest comes home singing songs from what they have learnt, tells me about all the fantastic walks he's been on and what he's done that day.
They will miss seeing you both, thank you for all your support!!
Our daughter joined Charlotte's when she was 15 months old. She immediately loved the team and always left home in the morning with a smile on her face. I can't recommend Charlotte and her team enough. They really care about the children and make great effort to create a special bond with them which is so important when they are little. It is rare to find a place like this. Unfortunately we moved out of London and it broke my heart having to take our daughter away from this setting. I would have taken Charlotte with me if I could have.
Very professional and well organised. Gurpreet was able to provide her Ofsted registration, and provided a comprehensive list of Policies. Secure environment, with cctv, children are not able to leave the premises as it's secure. I was anxious about leaving my two year daughter with a childminder for the first time, however Gurpreet made me feel comfortable. I arrive to collect her after her settling in session and she was having such a lovely time, she did not want to leave.

Absolutely outstanding forest school, carlton loves coming here to play with his friends and get very muddy. The staff are very nurturing and totally understand the children's needs and listen to them and follow their interests. Carlton always comes back exhausted with a massive smile on his face. When asked what he has done he always tells me everything. They also offer a weekly story time via zoom which as become a weekly stable in our home and missed when it's not on during the half terms. Carltons confidence has been developed massively and his love of the outdoors strengthen. Its a shame he going to school in September as he will miss his outdoor adventures with Lisa, matt and vicky. If you are looking for your child to learn and be nurtured whilst being in the great outdoors then look no further Highly recommend
Nicci looked after my little boy from months old til he was 3 when we moved out of the area , she was an amazing help throughout his early years as I had gone back to work pretty soon , as a young first time mom it was great to have someone with years of experience looking after him , he loved being there and learned so much from her .. I definitely recommend her service
Our children were lucky enough to have this lovely lady as their reception teacher, this was one of the biggest milestones in the lives. From the moment we first met her she put our minds at ease with her kind, caring and professional manner. Our children always enjoyed going to school and told us all about the fun activities that they had done, she always takes the time to create a fun and educational environment for the children. We were always kept informed of our children's progress through her fantastic learning logs and she always took the time to listen to our worries and concerns.
We could not have asked for a more kind, patient or caring person to take care of our children.
My little girl has been with Cheryl & the girls since she was 9 months old (she's now 2) and she absolutely loves it. She is so content and settled and they treat her as if she was their own. The girls are always friendly, welcoming and always smiling. They genuinly love their job and do so much for their children its always a wonderful atmosphere. My little one always comes home happy and cant wait to go again 😊 they are all amazing xxx
You'll be hard pushed to find a childminder like Kerreyanne. She cared for my child for 2.5 years providing outstanding care.
Kerreyanne's setting became my daughter's second home where she felt loved and cared for. My child enjoyed every minute of her time there enjoying a wide range of activities and days out.
Kerreyanne regularly updates parents on where their child is at and her day to day communication is outstanding.
I could not recommend Kerreyanne enough.
