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.
Both my children cared for by Tamara, We only left her care because we moved out of the area and we all miss her very much. Tamara provides a home from home for the children that lovely hot meals and varied activities, including the Forest School which is an added bonus.
I would highly recommend Tamara
Angela is lovely and has played a huge part in helping my son settle into a new routine and make new friends, when we moved to the area. She is by nature a very warm and welcoming person and genuinely cares about the families she works with. Her home is a lovely family setting and my son can choose to relax or play and he really enjoys going. There are a variety of activities and outings during the holidays and I have peace of mind that my son is happy and well cared for when I am at work. Absolutely fantastic.
My daughter has been with mahera since she was 10 months old and I couldn’t ask for a better person to look after her. I felt at ease leaving my daughter with mahera and my daughter is now 2 and gets so excited when we tell her she’s going. Mahera takes great care of our daughter and we love the set up of her home. It’s clean and the best thing is she has a lovely garden. Great for our little one because she loves being out doors.
All that being said I would highly recommended mahera. 🙂🙂

I can say only good things about Catherine. All the kids love her and they get very attached to her. My daughter Emily (17 months) has been there since she was 11 months old. Catherine is so dedicated, she even bought for Emily a walker to help her in the early steps. She always eats better there than she does at home what makes me even more happy to see that she feels there like in a big familly. We hope our journey will continue long time for now on. ❤
This is a wonderful lady, a blessing and heaven's sent angel who currently looks after my son and daughter.
She has been able to provide the peace of mind I have been looking for in a childminder as a parent. Now I am not even worried for a second when my children are in her care.
She has also shown more than understanding towards my family, especially when I am stuck in traffic coming back to Birmingham and I really appreciate it.
Among childminders in the West Midlands, she is at the top level, the creme de la creme, in providing care, attention, kindness, protection, nurturing and even beyond.
With fullness of gratitude and respect I have written this review.

We so happy that our daughter (aged 2) goes to Munchkinz Nursery! The whole team is fabulous and their caring attitudes made it possible for our daughter to feel safe to explore without us constantly by her side! They made us feel welcome from the first day and really took time to listen to our needs and concerns as we have never left her anywhere before and this was very comforting for us as parents.
Within a few weeks we noticed she was talking more, singing nursery songs, sharing her day with us and even teaching us! She has learnt so many new things that we feel we would not have been able to teach her. To see her building her confidence day by day and excited to go to her 'school' makes us feel happy and has put our minds to rest about leaving her.
We feel blessed to have chosen this nursery and we highly recommend Munchkinz Nursery to any parent!
She is kind and caring. She did some babysitting for me while I was on holiday. My husband and I were so pleased with her service. She looked after my newborn very professionally. I found her proactive and energetic. Her positive energy made us all happy.
I highly recommend her.

Claudia has been our childminder for 3.5 years, first looking after our daughter and currently our son. She has been a wonderful carer and very reliable. Our children have loved playing in the fabulous garden with Wendy House, mixing with Claudia’s children and other kids in her care, and definitely eating her delicious home cooked food!! We can highly recommend her.
As a first time mother I was very skeptical about childcare and where I can leave my son so I can go back to work with a peaceful mind. But when I met Rebecca all my anxiety and worries came to an end.
Rebecca is such a caring, loving and passionate child minder who is very conscientious when it comes to my child's developmental needs.
Sending me pictures of what my little boy is doing in the day, puts my mind to rest knowing my son is having fun whilst learning.
All these she does at a very affordable rate... How awesome!
Zuzana stayed with our family as an au pair looking after our 3 children for 18 months. Her love for children meant it wasn’t too much effort for her to get on well with them. She was always doing activities with them, take them out, feed them and pick them up from school. She has become a part of our family to the extent that the children see her as their big sister. Even after she moved away she still comes round to look after the children. She always has presents for birthdays and Christmas. We will never forget the holiday we went with her to meet her family and the lovely reception they gave us. She is an amazing person and I highly recommend her.
Simone looked after our son once a week from when he was around 18 months to just recently when he started school- and our daughter for about 9 months- they loved going to her. She took them to a local playgroup which they adored, as well as on various outings. Simone is a vary caring person, who clearly loves the children. I knew they would always be safe and happy in her care. She kept us updated about their progress- with a folder including photos of their development- but also a diary we took home each day letting us know key things about their day- and would send us photos and videos of them too. They also came home with some really beautiful pictures/arts and crafts at times that she had helped them with, which was very sweet! Simone was also very flexible working around my unpredictable work hours, which was much valued. We have had to stop going regularly due to my son beginning school and the logistics being too tricky, but hope to come again during school holidays.

Sana cane to help me with my three daughters aged 1,2 and 3. Straight away she got to know the kids and played with them, she really tried to understand them, their personalities and their needs- they are all very different! She has a gentle, calm and caring approach. She has a loveable nature and is keen to help with anything she can. You can tell she really loves being around children. My girls bonded with her immediately and they are always looking forward to seeing her again. Ill be going back to work soon and I feel happy in my heart knowing that I can leave my children to be looked after by Sana.
I’m impressed how she loves my son and how she cares about him and the other children as well . She was the one I choose from many others and I’m so happy I made the right decision. My son is very shy boy , he hardly accepts new people, but only after few visits to Jen he stopped crying when I was leaving him , it was a very pleasant surprise to me .He is always happy when I’m leaving him there , it is such a peace of mind to every parent , because you know you are leaving your child in to loving hands . Jen was always with my son , they had many activities together , was going to the parks , walking with the dog , exploring the world together, playing , talking- my son was never left behind or alone , he was always with Jen doing something interesting.
I can say a huge THANK YOU
to Jen and I can HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER to everyone!
Our little girl Grace was looked after by Lorraine, Denise and Alfie from age 9 months to 2 years and 3 months. To say we were sad to leave is an understatement! From day one Grace LOVED going to Lorraine's house. I have watched her develop from a baby to a toddler and come home singing new songs and saying new words that clearly she has learned from the amazing team. We started on 4 days a week and increased to 5 days a week full time and I honestly could not have picked a better childminding team. I definitely think they are the best choice for younger babies and toddlers as it is a true home from home environment with set routines for playtime, meals and naps. I will be keeping in touch with Lorraine, Denise and Alfie for babysitting requests and just generally because they felt like an extended family. Thank you Lorraine for all these months together!
My eldest son attended tiny treasures 2 years ago he thrived in the setting. Last week my yongest son has started and i have seen such a big diffence in him and his learning already teachers have helped him engage more with activities he enjoys or would'nt normally try to do at home. The staff are so welcoming and friendly ensuring each child has a happy experience. The setting is laid out to give children lots of opportunities to learn from using child ignitiated activities.
Kelly made my child feel at home and relaxed, she sent regular updates to let me know how my child was doing throughout the day. The policies and procedures and permission slips were given to me to complete before first day. She also took the time to do a all about me booklet which is a way of her getting to know the child likes, dislikes and enjoyments. One happy momma and happy child definitely recommend.

Annabel looked after my two sons aged six and three. They both felt comfortable with her very quickly and were always keen to return to her home where there’s lots of space and various toys and crafts to try. Annabel is loving, patient and very engaging with children. She also sends regular update and photos throughout the day, which is a lovely touch. I highly recommend her!
My daughter joined the preschool when she was 2 years old. She was shy and lacked confidence. She refused to take coat and bag off at first but With help from the lovely staff she settled in nicely. The staff are warm and friendly and happy to tell you how you child day been and how there progressing. My daughter is now gone on to reception class full of confidence no longer shy and loves to make new friends.
Our daughter attended Little Robins from August 2017 until recently in July 2019. I have to say Marion has been amazing with our girl, she has been loving, caring and encouraging her to grow and develop positively. Marion is always doing something creative with the children and very thoughtful in those creations when it comes to special events. Marion has always been very reliable and flexible when needed, her environmen has always been very safe and her family/children are so lovely and helpful too. Marion made sure things were in line with the EYFS as much possible and her efforts went beyond our expectations of a childminder which is amazing. We were very sad when our daughter had her last day but definitely a childcare journey to be cherished, and we will certainly without any doubts, register with Little Robins again if we have another child in the future.
