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.
Lucia and her assistants Shauna and Anna are such wonderful carers! My boys went to Lucia's for almost 5 years between them, and I couldn't have wished for a better childminder. Lucia's was the perfect blend of a mini nursery (with a variety of children to socialise with, and lots of activities scheduled) and a home caring environment where they had consistency of care with the same people over a number of years. My youngest son started there when he was 7 months old and it was such a relief to find somewhere that I knew could give him the individual care he needed in a home environment. Lucia was thoughtful about accommodating his food and play preferences and caring about easing him into a routine. We got regular feedback on how my sons were progressing and very detailed reports on their Early Years progress. My boys were very happy there for a number of years and we still keep in touch as they are part of our family!

Karen has been minding my two daughters for the last 5 years, starting as babies and now doing the school drop off and pick up. My children love going to Karen’s, and I am able to go to work knowing the are always happy, safe and having fun. Karen’s home is well set up for the children, clean, safe and with lots of educational materials. We are so lucky to have karen as she is a reliable, kind and compassionate person and I fully trust my children in her care. They also get fed far better at Karen’s than they do at home 😆
Eda is respectful of the parents and the children's needs. She is easy to contact and responds quickly. She focuses on the children when she is with them. The children instantly take to her because she is really approachable and nice. If you are thinking about booking her to look after your children, you will not be disappointed. Just make sure you don't try and book her for the same night as me!!!! All I can say is she is highly recommended by me.
100% recommend Sam. Honestly can say she’s a delight to have around our kids. She interacted with them constantly and played games and on a plus side totally wore them out for us. We enjoyed a lovely evening out and came home to 3 very sleepy kids. Thank you so much and we can’t wait to use you again.
Our little boy has been with Bonnie since September, since he has attended he has come on leaps and bounds starting walking, started to say words and happily interacts with other children. Every time our boy gets out of the car he becomes super excited and starts going crazy to get inside. Her house is extremely clean and tidy, our little boy is cared for By Bonnie like he was her own. Our little boy loves her son and constantly gives kisses and cuddles.
I am extremely happy with Bonnie care for our son, her communication and paperwork is very efficient, always keeps us up to date with our sons progress. Bonnie always send photos of our son. She goes beyond with communicating with us.
Would definitely recommend.
Hi my daughter alexia started with Samantha when she was around 9 months old, alexia did 3 full days with Sam a week, she was with Sam until she started school this September, I was very sad for alexia to leave Sam as alexia had the biggest bond with Sam, sam always went that extra mile for alexia, alexia had lots of challenges whilst with Sam and she went beyond and above to help us as a family anyway she could and was very happy there, Sam cared so much for all the children and always had a fun filled packed week of activities on for the children to do, we will miss inquisitive kids very much and all alexia friends and most of all Sam xxxx
Our daughter has been with Diane for a few months now, she had only just turned 1 when we found Diane and she was hard work for Diane as she had always been so clingy to me. Diane invested SO much time and effort into getting our daughter settled and we can not thank Diane enough. Our daughter now loves going and is more confident being with other people. It’s a lovely friendly home environment with all the toys children could wish to play with. Can not recommend her enough.
The ladies in this nursery are wonderful! i have only got positive things to say regarding the quality of care and education this wonderful people provide. As a teacher, I was very particular about the things I was looking for in a setting. As soon as I stepped foot into Limetree and met the staff I just knew. The fact that they have an open door policy filled me with confidence. They told me just to pop down whenever was convenient on any day to look - I didnt have to book an appointment. The app is brilliant for keeping track on your little one and I love to steal activity ideas from this to do at home.The relationship they have with my little one is amazing: they treat her as their own and she loves them all immensely. The only thing I would say (which is more for head office) is that the invoicing system can sometimes go wrong however on the occasions when this has happened they are quick to resolve it. I couldn't recommend this place enough!
Stacey has been extremely kind and flexible with my little girl over the last few weeks.
She helped her settle in with plenty of toys and activities to keep her entertained during the day.
Stacey is very patient with my 10 month old who is a very “clingy” baby needing loads of attention.
Very nice home environment.
I highly recommend Stacey for her professionalism and kindness.
My son joined Rob and Jo 1 year and half ago in 2018 and since then I'm very pleased with the care they provide.
Any time we were forced to change the start times or the days when our son needed care because work changing shifts, Jo and Rob were very open to negotiation and flexible,always find the best solution. The cabain is spacious and full of toys suitable for all ages, children have a spacious yard to consume energy.Also love to receive updates during day (pics or message ) about my son activity. My son is very happy and learning new things every day. Thank you For 5 * care!

Leigh is experienced, professional, patient and has a genuine love for children. Leigh has been our childminder for nearly 2 years and I highly recommend Leigh. Not only is Leigh an OFSTED registered childminder, she also goes over and above to get to know the children she looks after and offers a tailored approach working with the parents/guardians which is always helpful. My son often praises Leigh (firstly for her cooking skills!) and also for creating fun and exciting activities that the children can do. She also encourages the children when she can to travel to school by other means for exercise such as walking, bikes or scooters which again is very good for the children.
Netherfield Kindergarden provides a fantastic program, going above and beyond on all areas and truly caring for each child.
N.K. offers lots of envichment activities, story tome and field trips.
Jolanta has provided a safe, professional and loving environment for children. The routine and consistency was a blessing. A.K.
My daughter has been with Lisa since September this year and her progress and development since has been amazing. My daughters 15 months and loves going to see Lisa and always has a great time when she’s there, I always have regular updates throughout the day which was great for me as it put my mind at rest while I was at work.
Amazing service and would highly reccomend to anyone looking for a childminder, very reasonable and affordable prices too.

I highly recommend Tracey as a carer. Tracey started by looking after my daughter nights at 5 weeks old and this led to a regular day for almost a year now. My little girl is now almost 1 and loves her days with Tracey. I can go out and enjoy my day / evening at ease knowing Tracey is home. At times I feel she is better with her than I am! :) Never any problems putting her down for her naps, feeding her etc.
Tracey takes my little one to play groups, walks, playgrounds, animal farms etc. and is pro active in suggesting activities and keeping busy at home with books, singing etc.
