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.
Jaime was supposed to be at my home for an interview on Saturday morning, but didn't show up. I did send an email to see if she was still coming, but she never replied.
I had changed my plans of the day to accommodate this interview, with 2 children and close to Christmas - this was an effort in itself, a little courteous message to cancel would have sufficed.
Aferdita helped look after my son right from birth. She was absolutely perfect, looking after him with love and care and attentiveness. I found it easy leaving him with her from the start. She is incredibly hard-working, reliable and trustworthy; always keeping herself busy doing really useful chores around the house. It has been an absolute lifesaver having her help. My son absolutely adores her and his face always lights up when he sees her. Would highly recommend.

I can't recommend this nursery enough! They have been brilliant with my little girl, she's come on leaps and bounds since she started a few months ago. She never wants to leave when I go to collect her! She is doing something different every day. Always different crafts and messy play. I love getting the photo updates on the app. Fab! The nursery staff are lovely and I trust them 100% to look after my precious girl.
My boys (age 8 and 6) go to before and after school care and holiday time care. They look forward to drop off each day and are full of beans when they get home to tell us about the activities they have done with their friends at Amanda’s. They feel so at home, relaxed and secure and will talk to Amanda about anything and everything. She is like one of the family, an extra parent and having her excellent childcare Helps my family unit to function.
I was returning to work full time when my daughter was 7 months old and was very nervous about her childcare. Kirsten put me at ease straight away and I can honestly say having her take care of our daughter was the best decision we could have made. You can see the love and dedication Kirsten has for the children in her care. My daughter has progressed so well in the time she’s been with her and she absolutely loves going to see her, my daughter always has a big smile for Kirsten when I drop her off. I would whole heartedly recommend this lovely lady to anyone looking for trustworthy, caring and professional childcare.
We came from Asia with concerns over our new life in London with our two-year-old boy. Barbara and her team gave us full of relief and released ourselves from our anxiety through her full of love at her home. Our boy cannot speak English at all but Barbara and her team welcome him and has been supporting him to develop his senses/abilities from various perspectives. Our boy goes to the nursery with full of smile every day and we cannot thank enough to Barbara for her passion and love to children. Barbara nursery is truly the second home for our boy.
Austin has absolutely loved attending Angels Academy. Sophie and Hany were amazing right from the start, very understanding and made the transition for me having to go back to work after 1 1/2 yrs of being a full time mummy alot easier. Im so glad we found them ! The house is immaculate, the food is all home made and the garden is amazing. Online diarys were also available so i knew how hed been and regular pics of what hes been up too were a lovely touch.
I have no doubt they have played a massive part in how our little boy has flourished - they are a very lovely family :)
I would definitely recommend Angels Academy for anyone looking for an excellent childminder
Jan’s personality is so soothing and calming, it shines through even when she is dealing with my boisterous 3 year old. She is very experienced and polite and yet still firm and patient.
I have no worries whenever my son is with her, I just do check-ins, just so I don’t seem unconcerned about my little one. She is really God sent...she is one of those few people who go out of their way to cater to the needs of my toddler (makes sure she engages him in both indoor and outdoor activities). She also takes them for extra curricular activities like Halloween parties, Christmas parties, toddler group, etc.
I believe the singular words that qualify Jan are nice, kind, sweet, loving, calming. I will use Jan’s services, even when I don’t need it, just for the sake of the mental stimulation she provides my son.
God bless you Jan. Myself and Hakeem, bless the day we found you.
After moving back to Swindon from Portsmouth I did struggle to find a childminder that had space for two children under 3. I found Nat but I was a bit apprehensive as my son always cried when dropping him off to his previous childminder in Portsmouth. After his first session I couldn’t even get a goodbye from him as he would run straight in and was so settled!!
Nat has been absolutely amazing with both my children but I had to put my son into preschool and will be taking my daughter to the nursery where he goes from January which we’re all really sad about, both kids love Nat to pieces and my son was gutted when he realised he wasn’t going to her anymore.
I honestly can’t recommend her enough, she always done either days out or some sort of activities which they didn’t get with their previous childminder so thank you so much for all you’ve done with my two, they really will/do miss you.
I take off my hat to Kim for the high quality care that she showed to my little angel Evelyn. From the first meeting, Kim was so lovely woman. Additionally, she is very experienced childminder and the play ground was full with toys that any child will definitely like.
My 6months daughter was not used to adapt on new person. However, she liked Kim from the first day.
We are so grateful to her and she is a childminder who hard to find these days.
I contacted this member via the site and then text and agreed upon date, time, location and price of job which was in a weeks time. The day before I texted her again to confirm details and received no response. The day of the job I again texted and left a voicemail all which were unanswered. No apology or communication has been made since the initial agreement. Of course this was an extremely difficult position to be put in as I was 2hours from home and left without childcare. I would not recommend this member at all as I find her to be unreliable and not trustworthy.
It was very difficult for my wife and parents-in-law to make my son to sit and read etc. As a professional, she was able to mould my son and he seems to be much better. Unfortunately, we had to say thank you to Charmaine as he has moved to a different continent. We would have continued using her services provided my son would have remained in the UK.
She's helped him with listening , reading, writing, story telling etc,
I only hope we will be able to get somebody with her caliber. Thank you Charmaine for the all efforts.
She was supposed to come to my house to meet me and my daughter at 9 am 3 Dec but she delayed the time for 30 minutes due to her dentist appointment so I said that is fine. I was expecting her to come at 9:30. She didn't turn up. I sent her message at 10:00 saying 'Are you coming?'. No answer and whatsoever afterwards. She could at least text me saying she is no longer interested in the job. That is what normal people would do I think. It takes 10 seconds of your time.
