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.
Leila is really the best of the best. She is very professional, polite and has done a superb job at creating such a fun, homelike and child-friendly setting for all the children in her care. The service we received from Happy Feet has been impressive throughout - our two children absolutely loved it there and are going to miss Leila and the team so much!
My 2 year old girl and 4 year old boy have been looked after wonderfully well by Bal for a number of months now. They’ve flourished under her supervision, and never get upset when we drop them off.
Bal has also been flexible and supportive, especially during the stand times of the pandemic.
Can’t rate her service and business highly enough.
My son has been going to Yesim for more than year now. She has been absolutely brilliant with him, providing the best possible care as well as creative activities and makes him feel part of her family. He is very happy there and made lots of progress. She always keeps us updated as well as providing very useful advice (especially as we are first time parents).

First of all, Thank you Jo for everything you've done for Francesco and I! We love you!
Jo is the best childminder I met, she is friendly, empathic, caring and an amazing person. She looks after children with love and care, she always makes sure they are happy and most important they are safe. She has a lovely house with a great garden, equipped with everything kids need to keep entertained. If you are looking for a childminder don't hesitate to get in touch with Jo.
Natalie is caring and warm yet extremely professional. I was a bit nervous about sending my son to childcare as he was a lockdown baby, however has settled in so well and loves his days there! Natalie does lots of fun activities and gives those in her care a range of hands on learning experiences. I love getting photos and updates throughout the day!
Iva was my daughter's nanny from when she was 12 months old, as part of a nanny share. Iva was at all times highly professional and absolutely dedicated to the job. She got my daughter into a good sleep routine, and prepared nutritious and age-appropriate meals and snacks from scratch. She organised varied stimulating activities for my daughter both outside and inside the home, and ensured she got plenty of outdoor time at the park each day. Iva is organised, safety-conscious and thoughtful, regularly making suggestions and taking initiatives to further my daughter's development. Any family would be lucky to have Iva as their nanny.
I normally dont leave a review but this incident really disappointed me. Rebecca agreed to work for our family three days a week. At first she seemed very interested in the job and willing to compromise on the working days. i really appreciated that. However, on the first day of work she used flat tire as a reason to cancel on me, which soon sounded like an excuse. I called her several times to ask if this is a cancellation or if she is just going to be late since she left it very vague. She didn't call back and went MIA. She left me stranded with no help and I had an appointment at the hospital for my routine check up as I am currently pregnant. I understand some people on this site aren't professional nannies and just want the job as a part-time gig for extra pocket money. However, this type of behavior is extremely unprofessional and make other real nannies that take the job seriously look bad. There should be a system on this site where if they don't show up for work last minute , they are given a penalty that leads to banning of using the app.
Natalie looked after my 3 year old boy for the summer of 2021. He absolutely loved it and I knew he was well looked after. Natalie always sent over a well detailed account of where they had been and any learnings, with photos. She made my son fee like part of the family and her childcare style was exactly how it should be. Natalie has everything very well organised, the setting is perfect and the admin is up to date. We couldn’t have found anyone better to look after our some for the summer, thank you we miss you already.
As a parent I was concerned regarding the transition period with my little boy when I had to go back at work.I am so please that I had decided to send him to federica as he is always excited to go back. She sets up lovely activities and takes my boy regularly to the park. He is always excited and happy when I drop him off. He also enjoys learning new words in Italian. I would high recommend :)
Helen is amazing. From the first day we met she intuitively interacted with our then 11 month old and I knew right then she was for us. Helen not only provides an incredibly warm and nurturing environment for the children in her care she is also incredibly diligent and organised. I always knew our son would be exceptionally well cared for when with her, allowing us as parents to go to work without worry. Helen provides a very stimulating setting for the children with activities set up daily to aid their development and trips out to interesting places. Our son would often say 'go Helen's house' when at home which says it all. We will always be grateful for her care and time looking after our son. Thank you Helen!
Just 3 hours before the time she needed to take care of our son, we received a message that she got migraine and is not able to come! It was my bestie birthday and her boyfriend was going to propose to her so we were organising and getting ready for it for days, there was no chance to find another babysitter In 3 hours, i ended up missing my friend’s best day and watching it from instagrams stories in tiers. I usually don’t give negative reviews but when parents get babysitter and leave their children at home definitely they got an important reason! irresponsible peoples cannot take care of our children!
Katrin is the kindest, calmest and most lovely lady and we feel so lucky to have found her to look after our little one (now 2.5 although been with her since 15months). Our daughter absolutely adores her, and her older children, and every morning asks if she’s going to ‘Kati’s house’ today! Knowing she is happy and well cared for makes having to leave and go to work work so much easier!
Katrin always makes sure their days are jam packed and full of fun. They spend as much time as possible out and about, leaning through play and lots of ‘real life skills’ which was really important to us and she puts so much thought and love into everything she plans, really taking into account the individual children and their likes etc. All meals are home cooked and fresh, communication is great and nothing is too much trouble or a problem - she is always on hand to help and support if and when needed and supports home routines etc.
Her love and knowledge of children is so clear. We honestly can’t recommend Katrin enough.
Our daughter has been going to Alicja's setting for almost 3 years - since she was only 8 month old! Alicja and her team provide with the best care a parent can possibly imagine, from a warm and cosy setting full of toys, to home-made food and most importantly, an environment full of love. Alicja has an impressive background in childcare and her expertise is manifested in the way she plans all the daily activities, her approach to stimulate learning through play and her genuine passion and dedication. We consider Alicja part of our family and we will always be grateful for her invaluable help with the development of our child.
Leonie is the best childminder we’ve seen. She looked after both of our kids and she is absolutely amazing. Of course, she has lots of experience on taking care of kids, also very helpful for parenting suggestions such as potty training. We can feel she sincerely loves all the kids from heart, she reads them lots of books, teaches them good manner, positive attitudes, she took them to many nice places during the day such as NT, botanic garden, local garden center and parks…. My kids had lots of fun with her, sometimes when we visit these places during the weekends, my kids always very excited to show us their secret routes, what did they play there… I still remember few years ago when she looked after my older son, there was an unplanned snowy day. And they made their own little “ski board” on that day; it was so much fun they had together. She had grown them so happy and confident about themselves. Both of my kids love her a lot!!!
It was so lucky to have her look after our kids. We would highly recommend to everyone who needs a childcare.
Sadly we have had to say goodbye to Charlotte due to her moving to Bournemouth but I’m just leaving this review as she has been hands down the best baby sitter we have had and has always been very punctual, polite and very nurturing to my 3 children (ages 2,6 and 10). Charlotte would even turn up with games and crafts to keep the children entertained which she didn’t have to do but was such a thoughtful gesture. My children would always look forward to seeing her as she was always so much fun and upbeat. I wish you all the best sweetie and thank you for everything! 💕
Cecily helped our family by looking after our 11 year old and 9 year old daughters while I adjusted to working to full time working. Cecily was extremely reliable and we felt very confident leaving our girls to be met by Cecily after school and I arrived back home. The girls enjoyed her company very much and she was a wonderful hand with keeping the house nice and clean, and making sure that the girls had snacks and dinner. I highly recommend Cecily and I would have no hesitation in contacting her for future help.
We're a little biased as Andrea is our daughter's caregiver at nursery, but we were still nervous about her first night away from us. We had nothing to worry about, she got to sleep really easily - a sure sign that she was comfortable with Andrea and the change of scene.
Andrea is very friendly and was happy for us to bring along our white noise and night light to keep our daughter's routine as normal as possible. She's got a great range of toys and books, and a big garden.
Our daughter has been comfortable with Andrea from the moment they met, and I would highly recommend her!
