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.
My daughter started going with Safina & baba (as we all call him ❤️) after I found her profile on his website. Me and my husband who’s in the military moved to Hounslow 2 years ago, I genuinely can’t praise these two enough! They would help me so much with my husband being away at times for 6months.
They helped my daughter come on with her speech, writing and counting. They are incredible, and very understanding when it comes to children as they have children themselves. They have some much care and dedication to everything they do always ensuring the best for all children. Thankyou so much for everything you both continue to do. Zendaya can’t wait to see you all again in the summer holidays all our love Shannon and joe x
My daughter has been in Kirsty's care since she was 10 months old and we'd be lost without her support.
Right from the first meeting my daughter took to Kirsty and has gone from strength to strength over the past 12 months.
The setting is safe and loving with play of paramount importance. The children are great friends and you can just tell they enjoy themselves by the chatter and smiles at drop off and pick up!
Kirsty is highly organised, professional, efficient, a pleasure to deal with and always keen to help whenever she can. Most important is her gift for working with children.
Looking for someone to care for your child is daunting on top of returning to work but when you find the right person and your child is happy - you couldn't ask for more! We're so very grateful to Kirsty.
Maya has looked after my little girl from the age of 1- nearly 4 and we are only leaving because it's time for pre school! Maya has provided amazing care in a home from home setting, and loves and cares for all the children as if they were her own. She provides a wide range of activities and outings and teaches lots of educational building blocks in her calm and loving way. The children in her care treat each other like a little mini family and are very close with each other, which is a lovely added bonus that I'm not sure you get in a nursery setting. We wouldn't hesitate to - and have done - recommend to friends looking for childcare, who have all been similarly happy.
Jayne has only been tutoring my 6 and 8 year old for a couple of weeks and you can already see positive results. Jayne is well organised, enthusiastic and passionate about tutoring my daughters. I was originally worried about online classes but Jayne has definitely changed my mind as I can see how she interacts with the children to make it fun and exciting about learning. Thank you for you efforts. We highly recommend you
Claire looked after my little girl 2 days a week for over a year before she started at preschool. Claire was incredibly welcoming and my little girl was so at home in Claire’s house. She loved all the exciting experiences offered to her and she had a wonderful relationship with Claire. Everything is super organised and Claire is very efficient. She went over and above to make things as easy for me as possible and gave me detailed feedback and photos of what my little girl got up to. I couldn’t recommend Claire more.
Birsel has looked after our two children from the ages of 1 and 3 (now 5 and 7), initially full-time and more recently with wrap around care. Our son has additional needs, which she was capable and accommodating of. She is reliable, flexible and kind. Our children have always loved their time with her. She makes an effort to follow the early years curriculum, ensures they get fresh air and exercise daily, and cooks home cooked food - they eat a greater variety with her than at home! My children have thrived under her care.
We are very happy to recommend Birsel to any parent.

Natalie of Nuturing Nest has been looking after my daughter since she was 10 months old and she is nearly 3 years old. As I was a first time mum I was apprehensive about leaving my daughter with anyone but Natalie made that transition easy and kept me informed of what she was doing on a daily basis. My daughter has learnt so much since she started with Natalie and got my daughter eating new foods that she would not accept from me. My daughter enjoys the trips out that Natalie takes them on and made some good friends along the way. When I go to pick her up, she doesn’t want to leave.
Natalie is such a caring and nuturing person, it truly is a home from home for my daughter. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a childminder.
Theresa is an amazing, kind, caring person. I couldn’t of even imagined of anyone being able to meet my expectations and standards of caring for my children (aged 1 and 4 when they started with Theresa) but Theresa went above and beyond caring and teaching my children and has such a lovely nature and nurture approach. I knew that they were in safe hands the moment I met her and her family. As all parents do, I was worried that the kids being so young would miss out on the home and mummy environment of things with me having to work full time (and daddy too). But it became a second home for my children and they love Theresa.
Theresa always had time for a good handover at pick up. Always at the end of a phone if I had any questions. Always gave nutritious food and drinks.
I honestly could not recommend her enough. With Theresa as your child’s childminder, you can go to work with peace of mind knowing they are in the best Kind hands.

My son has been with Meriem since he was 11 months old (he is now 4) and I cannot recommend her enough. She is loving, kind and patient and her house has become a second home for him. Meriem has always been so flexible around my working arrangements such as if the trains have been cancelled and I’ve been late back from work and she never complains about it. She is very nurturing and that is exactly what my son needed and he has benefitted so much by being with her. She also does lots of fun activities with the children and has a great selection of toys and games for them to play with and a lovely outside space. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
I had met several nannies and childminders over the years, but none was like Antoinette. I met her online during the lockdown. She had daily virtual sessions over Skype with my daughter (4 years old) throughout the lockdown. She has been very persistent and patient with her especially given that my daughter was not used to teaching online and she had never met Antoin in person. She managed to engage her with a range of interesting, fun and educational learning activities. We would really love to have her again :) highly reccommended!
i can highly recommend sarah she is fantastic value for money, the premises are incredibly clean and welcoming.
my daughter had issues with strangers but she settled in very quickly and is very happy to see sarah every day. Sarah has a very lovely personality and is very loving and bubbly and i felt at ease within 5 minutes of meeting her.
if you are looking for a reliable, trustworthy, dedicated childminder sarah goes above and beyond to make life easier she has amazing flexibility.
My children have now been in Dawns care for nearly three years and we’re set to stay!
Having two children who couldn’t be more different - one prefers outdoors adventure and the other quieter play - they both instantly settled at Dawns and we have never looked back. Dawn provides a nurturing, caring home that is always full of fun and laughter.
Sorry to mimic other reviews but it really is home from home and I imagine in my children’s eyes probably the better home!
London Borough of Havering
Having been a childminder myself for over 14 years I was looking for the perfect match for my children when I returned to a job where I would need before and after school help and also the odd days in the holidays !
Well Dawn has done all this and more, she has cared for my boys like I would and given them such a great experience with learning,
From Pick up and drop off of my youngest to helping the transition of one of my elder ones with secondary who has Autism.
I have used Dawn for over 4 years now and sometimes even when I least expect it she still surprises my boys with fun days out and she’s always equipped for any eventuality.
I seriously don’t think I could do the job I do if I didn’t have her in our life’s
100% recommend Dawn as you get that real professional relationship alongside your children getting the caring and nurturing side Of a home from home environment.
Theresa cared for our youngest for three years, and I mean just that. Her kindness, patience and all round understanding of child development knows no bounds and our son thrived under her care. The space that she has for children is so thought out, providing children with age appropriate, stimulating yet fun activities. She taught my son so many key skills which have given him such a good grounding for starting school. We are so grateful that Theresa was a part of my son's life (and ours) for those three years and we miss her dearly. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her. Thank you so, so much Theresa for everything you have done for our family xxx
Madelyn worked with us as nanny for 4 years. She always demonstrated amazing capabilities as a guardian to our Child. She is very responsible and performs her tasks really well. Madelyn is very reliable and effectively managed appointments as well as extra-curricular activities for our child in Junior school. One of her qualities that I admired is her ability to effectively juggle multiple tasks at once. She is reliable , punctual and it is so assuring to have a nanny such as Madelyn. I am confident that choosing Madelyn for your childcare needs will provide you the much needed assurance . The demands may be different in your household, but I assure you that Madelyn is more than ready for any challenge and just has a way with children that works. Please feel free to contact me if you'd like me to elaborate on anything I've written for her or if you have any specific questions about Madelyn, I would be happy to discuss Madelyn's excellent work at length.
Leah was with our family for 6 months and she was brilliant. We first hired her as a night nanny and then subsequently as a day nanny for our second child. She helped establish a routine very quickly and he was sleeping through the night by 5 months. She also helped us wean him which was of great help and our son loves food! Leah is professional, caring and brings a wealth of knowledge! Thank you Leah!
