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 attended Dottie Tots from the age of two up until starting school. The staff are amazing and go above and beyond to make sure the children have a lovely time and feel happy and settled. My daughters favourite experience was Pet week!
As a parent I always felt reassured that my daughter would be happy and looked after well. I feel like she has had the very best start, thank you.
Romina was our nanny for 9 years. She started working for us when our DS was 7months old and I would say that Romina is a fantastic, trustworthy, loving, caring nanny. She provided excellent care for our son also she’s very professional and passionate about her job. I truly highly recommend her to any future employers.
Millie (or Mimi as my two year old calls her) was a fantastic nanny for my for my two boys. She had amazing energy and a wonderful connection with them. She was great at planning activities in advance to ensure they developed well and had fun and did lots of home work with my 5 year old. Millie took time to plan and prepare meals. I can’t recommend Millie enough!
I visited Shibani whilst looking for a childminder for m 4 year old son, and I have to say I was blown away by her. She is so passionate about each and every child in her care. She has the most wonderful pure energy and zest for what she does. You can tell that she is definitely doing her dream job. Her house is immaculately clean! And every toy/equipment/activity carefully selected for it's fun and educational value. Any child would have the time of their life being minded by Shibani.
As a new mum and a full time worker I was anxious about leaving my 10month old for any childminder. However that changed the very moment i found Sima. She genuinely cares about children and my daughter was always excited to go there. I realised that from going to this childminder (‘home-nursery’) my daughter’s development was quick, she learnt words and songs and sociable skills. I call it a ‘home-nursery’ because the setup is brilliant. With books, activities embedded into the daily routine, well structured play area, my daughter was engaged and given the opportunity to explore and engage. I genuinely say that she’s the best childminder you could get for your child. My daughter is now 22 months and had I not moved to a different country, my daughter would still be with Sima. I now found myself looking for a childminder that would match up to the standards and care that was given by Sima
I found Yas through this site after viewing her profile. She messaged and we conversed in regards to my son and his specific needs being autistic.
She provided me with references and a DBS check Nothing was too much trouble. Due to my son being autistic she was happy for us to have some settling in sessions to see how he’d get on before commencing childminding. My son absolutely adores Yas and her daughter and it’s always a struggle trying to get him to leave!
Yas does our Monday & Tuesday pick up from Rusper Primary. I couldn’t ask for a more amazing person to be caring for my son whilst I’m at work.
She really is great and her playroom for the children is incredible. She caters for my sons individual needs and it shows by how happy he is when there.
I would be more than happy to give a reference for such a wonderful caregiver.

My little one, 16 months now, has been with Caz (Michie and Tamara) since he was 8 months. He arrives and leaves with a smile, every time. He loves them and he is loved too ;). And they keep doing fun stuff with all the kids which help him to learn and develop. The ladies are very responsible, caring, experienced and safety aware. Really recommended as Childminders. You won't regret it!
Olivia has babysat my two children on several occasions, including one overnight stay. She is very open to discussing arrangements and we have really appreciated her flexibility in helping us at short notice on occasions.
The kids really like her and she is very experienced with young children, having worked at a nursery. She has a good balance of fun and authority with the kids so we can trust that she’s in charge when we’re not around and that the kids enjoy her company.

Natasha and her family have been amazing to our family. They opened their home & cared for our little girl from around 9mnths till she turned 3. It’s been amazing watching our little girl progress with them. The whole family is lovely, kind and they went above and beyond for us. She supported us during the trying lock down period. This was important to us as key workers. Their home is clean and well looked after, has plenty of toys and space for the little ones. Little ones are taken for outdoors trips too. Home cooked Meals are provided.
Sandra helped my family out massively during the summer - child-minders were back at work but schools were still out and she took great care of our 10 year old daughter during the "summer term". It meant my wife and I could get back to work and our daughter had 2 days with someone other than mum & dad to talk to. Sandra was interested and interesting, very patient and formed a good bond with our girl. We stay in touch even though the assignment is over and we are very happy to do so! Thanks a million Sandra!

Nikki was looking after our little Brian for almost 1,5 years and he loved her! We felt sorry that he couldn`t go for more then once a week session due to financial situation. But if we would be able to afford we would definetly do this as Nikki is brilliant! If you are looking for responsible, kind and lovely person for your child this childminder is just the right person. many thanks for all of your hard work! xxx
Claire has been our childminder on and off for the last 7 years. She's absolutely wonderful, looks after our children like their her own and is very reliable.
They have home cooked meals, enjoy days out and trips to the park.
We would be lost without her and I feel very grateful that she continues to look after our children. She's become a good friend and we love her to bits.
She's also managed the current COVID-19 situation with calmness and professionalism. Ensuring regular hand washing and social distancing is followed where possible.
Alycia was reliable for the days of babysitting I needed. She immediately feel in love with the children and they in return. She read them stories and cared for their wellbeing.
Very pleased and happy with her and would use her again in a heartbeat.
She definitely comes highly recommended 👌

Gemma has been looking after my boys after school since the beginning of this year. She is knowledgeable with the early years and has a good trusting relationship with my 10 year old to. She is really good with my sons additional needs. She does their reading with them and ensures they have had a good day.
Trish looked after my daughter when I needed an overnight nanny at short notice. She was everything that I could have hoped for and more. My 2 year old adored her and spoke about her for days when she had left, I would recommend her to anyone.
Trish set my mind totally at ease, was in contact whenever I needed her to be and could not have been more professional.
