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.
Miriam took care of my 2 yo child for some months and we were super happy with her caring service. From the begging I felt I could trust her and knew she was going to take good care of the little one. She is very flexible with my working hours and always is willing to accommodate us in her space in case there's last minute changes. My child always wanted to come back to hers, she provided good food and snacks, and funny activities indoors and outdoors. I really appreciate her services and totally recommend her.
Laura was our Nanny for 6 years.
When she started we had 3 children, newborn, 16 month old & 3 year old.
Or middle child was born with limited vision and we spent a great deal of time in London hospitals including overnight stays. Laura was integral to stability with our other children and would amend or work extra hours whenever required. Even after surgery we were patching my sons eye up to 8 hours a day, which Laura took on board with great patience and determination.
We were so fortunate to have Laura through this period and indeed for the children's early years, i cannot recommend her highly enough, and would be a huge asset to any family.
My kids still speak of Laura and the memories they have with her, a wonderfull human being.

Casey has been my son's childminder for almost a year. My son settled with her instantly and I immediately felt at ease with leaving him with her. I am kept constantly updated with his daily activities, routine and general wellbeing. My daughter is also looked after by Casey during school holidays and neither of them can wait to go, as they are always guaranteed a great time! They both also love playing with Casey's children, who are all so attentive and loving towards them. I couldn't recomment Casey enough!
Rachelle is an exceptional nanny who really makes it a priority to understand each child and their needs. She goes above and beyond and puts in 100% to make sure they are fully supported, loved and that they thrive. She has an excellent work ethic, is proactive in creating activities and adventures and always generates a positive, upbeat atmosphere in the house. I can wholeheartedly recommend Rachelle in providing outstanding care for children.
Can't recommend Kiya enough - looked after two of our children at different ages and both couldn't wait to go to the setting! Kiya creates a calm and nurturing environment that helps every child in the setting feel secure. Both children always commented on how much fun they had in Kiya's care - there was always such a variety of indoor and outdoor activities, always creative and we always felt that the children were in amazing hands.

Julia has been our nanny since July 2018, when my daughter was 1. My daughter became comfortable (indeed happy!) being left with her new nanny very quickly, which was extremely reassuring as a first-time mum – this is testament to Julia’s skill in building rapport and trust with children, which naturally extends to the parent. My daughter is now nearly three and loves Julia very much. This is obvious to see. Julia has been an instrumental influence on my daughter and has supported me in promoting curiosity in the world, a love of reading, and good social behaviour. I will be forever grateful for the love, care and attention that Julia gave my daughter during these crucial years of development. Julia has a kind heart, an organised and professional approach, a love of children and a belief in gentle disciple that promotes good social behaviour. All these attributes make her an excellent nanny.
Vicky has an excellent setting with large and spacious areas both indoors and outdoor which provides children with lots of opportunities to play and learn! Vicky takes full advantage of being in the country and teaches children about road safety, how to behave around animals also the importance of protecting the world and how it can be done through recycling! Vicky herself as stated above is a wonder woman she's patient, kind, caring and treats each child equally and encourages the children to grow within themselves! If I could give more than 5 stars I would!
We found Charlotte after deciding to take our son (14 months) out of nursery. I was so used to the mainstream nursery experience that I had no idea what to expect from a childminder. Charlotte and her home setting made me regret ever sending my son into a nursery!
She’s warm, friendly and you can see she has a genuine love for what she is doing! Leaving my son at nursery with such a busy environment used to make me feel guilty and anxious but not once have I felt like that at drop offs at Charlotte’s. What she offers is literally a home from home experience and my son is thriving because of it.
I am happy with the progress of my 30-month son that I've been observing for the weeks he has spent with Fatima. He seemed to be rather anxious and shy when away from home (while being a happy and inquisitive little boy with the family) but now my son is much more at ease. I can see that his needs for communication and care are not overlooked hence there is a change in his behavior.
Fatima is a real professional; she is not only kind, caring, and responsible but very experienced. The house is spacious and tidy, it's well-packed with toys of all kinds and she has a big garden away from the street.
We are very pleased as a family with the services and flexibility she provides.
Highly recommend this beautiful person to look after your precious little people. She is the most kind natured, big hearted girl who makes every child she spends time with want to be in her company. Kiya has looked after my children on many occasions from small troublesome toddlers to now in their teens, her warmth and love towards every child she looks after is outstanding. She is professional and a great communicator and your children will love her.
Kiya cared for our children for many years and prior to that our niece. She has an excellent flare for caring for children. A very kind, calm and caring approach. Our children were always extremely well cared for, learnt so much and always happy at drop off and collection. To this day many years later they still refer to places they visited with Kiya and hold such fond memories of all the fun experiences that were provided. The setting was dedicated to the needs of the children with both inside and outside play areas, plenty of structure and routine and fair expectations with appropriate discipline. An amazing start to any child’s experience of a childcare setting.
Once met with Laura my husband and I felt she is the right person to look after our boys. Laura is kind, welcoming, caring, understanding and gets on with kids really well. Our oldest son enjoyed staying at her setting from day one. Youngest one can’t wait to start once school is over. We would definitely recommend Laura.
Louise have been looking after my 2.5 year old during the pandemic. She is professional, caring and great at coming up with ways to entreat and educate children. She is punctual, reliable and never let us down. My little girl is obsessed with her. I can highly recommend Louise.
Fatima is really welcoming and kind. The house is spotless and very safe. The children all seem so happy and relaxed. My daughter is her usual self when she goes there and gets along with everyone. She comes home excited and talking about the activities and the day she has had. Fatima is also really flexible with parents needs.
We have been lucky enough to have lisa care for both our children over the last 3 and a half years. It is so reassuring having our children attend a real home from home. Lisa is caring, supportive and very professional. Both children have thrived in her care and have loved being with her family and with the other children in lisa's care.
5+ stars go out to this lovely girl. She’s absolutely amazing at her job, and I couldn’t recommend her enough!
Ashleigh is a very confident, caring and loving person. Her passion towards caring and looking after children is incredible. After watching her play, look after and care for my little girl I knew I would never be able to trust anyone with my little girl other than Ashleigh. She’s not only just a baby sitter.. she’s a friend, a new family member.
If your looking for someone who has so much passion for children, to help watch them grow, learn and develop.. then she is your go to girl.
Absolutely amazing :)

Sab is currently babysitting for my twin sons aged 1.5yr for two mornings a week. She actively engages with the boys, bought colorful balloons and craft materials to teach them drawing from her own initiative, also took them to children's playground in the park. From time to time Sab brings along her son, who is chatty and plays with the babies which helps their language development as my sons love to watch and copy bigger kids - this is an absolute added bonus from my perspective especially at this strange time where all the playgroups and baby classes are closed.
Our 2 year old Daughter has been with Val for 4 days a week since she was 10 months old. From the moment we walked into Vals home we knew she was going to be the childminder for us.
Her home from home setting full of engaging educational activities is exactly what we wanted for our little girl.
Val’s garden is something else. Full of toys, activity areas and dens her outside space is used come rain or shine and our little one absolutely loves it.
Val has been brilliant at providing daily feedback and also feedback on the milestones our daughter achieves which has been so reassuring when leaving to return to work full time. We’re so glad we found Val and couldn’t wish for a better person to look after our little girl.
