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.
Zana has worked as full time nanny to my now 2.5 years old daughter for the past 10 months.
Apart from lovingly caring for my daughter, Zana cooked her fresh meals every day, arranged her play dates, took her to different activities, including music classes, cooking classes or bouncy castle. Zana also took her out into the park for walks or played at home when the weather didn’t permit being outside. Zana ensured that she was always nicely dressed and clean. In short, Zana was always a great support to me.
Zana quickly gained my daughter’s trust and affection and they have been able to form a very close bond with each other. Zana is very trustworthy, always on time and very reliable.
We cannot recommend Zana highly enough. We miss Zana dearly and wish her all the very best for the future.
Caitlyn looked after my eldest son from 3 months old until he started nursery at 3 years. He loved going to her house and was always happy and comfortable there. She now looks after my youngest and he is absolutely thriving there. He has learnt so much and is so happy there. He is always happy to go to her place in the mornings and loves her very much. Caitlyn is very good with teaching the children boundaries and working with them on their motor skills.
My daughter was with Caitlyn from 7 months old until she was 3 1/2 years old! Caitlyn was very good with boundaries and routine which my daughter loved! The house was always very clean and safe. My daughter loved going there and still talks about Cait’s house even though she is 6 now!
My daughter has been with Soraia since 10 months old, and I could not be happier with the care that she has received. The setting is very much a home from home atmosphere, and Soraia’s attitude is always positive and caring. Soraia has always been so considerate to our daughters and our needs, including ‘thinking our of the box’ for solutions when nap times have been very difficult! Plus using cloth nappies, as we do at home, has not been a problem. We communicate via text and also have a communications diary for daily reports. Soraia and her daughter feel like part of our family- and as first time parents we have often turned to her for her experience and advice! She has made my return to work a lot less stressful. I would never hesitate to recommend Soraia as a childminder, we are so sad to leave her this year as we move out of the city.
My little girl has been going to Cherie since September and is always in such a good mood when I pick her up. Cherie always has a variety of toys out for her to play with when we arrive and keeps me updated with photos throughout the day. I would definitely recommend Cherie to anyone.

We struck gold when we found Hayley. She looks after my 2 boys before and after school and they always look forward to their "Hayley days". Hayley is very calm, kind and caring person who made my boys feel at home on day 1. There are lots of things to do at Hayley's house, and when my boys are not outside playing I often find them in a den in the corner of the lounge. They never want to leave!
During her time with us, Jay proved herself to be a very reliable, organised and caring nanny to our two boys. She arranged interesting and varied activities for my youngest to take part in whilst the older boy was at pre-school. She cooked tasty and nutritious food for them to eat and was always very organised with varied menus so that it was easy for me to have the right ingredients in the house. She kept the play areas and the children’s bedrooms tidy and organised. She was always very prompt to respond to any messages and was a good communicator.
My boys have been with Nikki on and off for close to 7 years. Nikki has been absolutely amazing with both my boys and they absolutely adore her.
Her home away from home setting is perfect, jam packed with fun and so inviting for the little ones.
Nikki takes the children out and about on educational and fun visits and she always offers different fun activities for the children at home.
I for one have put my complete trust into Nikki caring for both my sons and she has honoured that trust above and beyond!
I can’t recommend Nikki enough! You will feel at ease immediately because her way with children is so natural.
Thank you Nikki for the respect, admiration and love you have shown to my boys, we will always be grateful!xx
We rate Julie so highly as a childminder. She looked after our daughter for nearly four years and now looks after our three year old. She has looked after both of our children from the age of 10 months old.
Julie provides a home from home service and wonderful learning opportunities. Both of our children love Julie and class her as a member of the family. We also class her as a friend. I cannot recommend her enough. Such a friendly, caring and child centred lady. We love you Julie! Xxxx
From the moment that we all met Gemma, we knew that she would be the perfect fit for our little boy who was 10 months old at the time. We knew that we chose well when we dropped him off for his first session and there were no tears or looking back to us. From that day to this, 10 months later, he has loved going to see Gemma and we know that he will be happy and well looked after. Every week we pick him up, he’s happy and smiling with something that he has made for us. We love getting pictures and updates as the day goes on, seeing what adventures he’s having. We enjoy looking at the books that have been chosen for him to read at home. It’s really clear that Gemma knows my little boy well, what interests him, what makes him excited and she can get him to do things that no one else in our family can. She is just fabulous, and I could never recommend her highly enough.

We have started working with Alex when my son was 1 year old. She handled him with great confidence and care from the beginning. Alex is a very tustworthy, responsible and dedicated babysitter, flexible as well. We really hope she will keep sitting for us in the future.
My daughter has been at Scribbles ELC for more than 6 months now. Ishma cares, nourishes and nurtures her to become more confident and social among her peers. She engages my daughter with creative arts and crafts, educational tools, counting, singing, playing in the outdoor garden, role modelling and imaginative play and school outings. She provides healthy snacks and meals and accommodates changes to our schedules, wherever she can. Her home is very safe, tidy and friendly and it gives me peace of mind. My daughter feels happy under her care.
My daughter has been going to Joannes for 2 months now and I really feel at ease whilst she is there. She comes home happy and enjoys going. Joanne goes above and beyond what I would expected for the price. She is really organised and Iove receiving pictures of my daughter's activities through the day.

just 2 days in nursery after settling in and my baby has shown great improvements. crawling n eating some food as well. my wife was happy on picking up our son and said he was humming along with her on the way home even with the rain.
1st birthday in 3 months time will hopefully be with a walking baby.
My boy started with Gemma when he had just turned 1 and now, a year later, he has blossomed into the happiest little toddler in town!
He is only leaving her care because we are emigrating, and one of the hardest things we will have to do is find new childcare as wonderful as Gemma.
Our son has come on leaps and bounds, and runs into her house every day with happiness and excitement. I have absolute peace of mind when I leave him there.
We will all miss her loads, cannot recommend her highly enough.
Tigger has been looking after my two primary school aged children regularly for over two years now, and they always look forward to seeing her. She is reliable, organised, caring, and (most importantly for the children) great fun. I would highly recommend Tigger to anyone looking for childcare.
Avni and Ameet are such wonderful people. They are absolutely fantastic with kids, my 2 year old little girl loved them the very first day we met for settling in sessions. Both Ameet and Avni are hands on with the children and looks after them just like her own. They were very helpful in time of crisis and went out of there way to make sure the kids are safe. Pixie's is one of the best childminding place, where you can be assured you children are in safe hands and they will get the absolute best care . Which leaves you in peace while at work. It was sad that we couldn't continue for longer due to my work commitments . I would highly recommend Avni and Ameet anyday for the best childcare service .
Nicci has looked after my daughter since she turned one for two days a week. Three months on she can't wait to be dropped off there. Nicci's place is a home from home. Nicci does so many different activities with the children she looks after- takes them to local toddler groups, reading, singing, playing, arts and crafts, cooking, walks outside- that my daughter has come such a long way in her development, especially her communication and fine motor skills. Nicci has so much experience looking after all ages and is a mum of three herself that I actually think my daughter is in safer hands with her than when she is with me! Nicci is calm, kind, organised and very caring, with good morals, behaviour management and a real sense of family values- I can't recommend her highly enough.
