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.
Najma looked after our little boy for about two years before he went to school. He had a lovely time with her and we all remember her fondly. Her setting is thoughtfully set out and very clean with a lovely back garden. She provided lots of interesting activities for the children and updated us with some special photos! We were homeschooling our older daughter and she tried to be really accommodating of our changing schedules.
Thank you Najma!
Alex looked after my 2 boys (3&7). He’s been wonderful with them. Kind but authoritative. He was interested in playing with them and chatting to them. They really enjoyed having him round. He checked with me when unsure, and offered to tidy up the toys. Would definitely recommend him.
Elora is a very calm and caring childminder. She looked after our 2 children aged 3.5 and 1.5 for 1 afternoon for 5 weeks and other random times. She is very reliable and also very amenable when times or dates changed. She dealt with tears on my leaving very well. The children always enjoyed their time with her and were happy that she was looking after them. She took them out to the park and feed them and they had a lot of fun together. Have recommend her to others. And will be asking her again in future.
Very sad to be writing this goodbye to leap tonight. My second child just finished her time with Kim and the leap family. If we weren't moving from the area then my third child would be going there also. It's a wonderful setting where I always felt 100% confident that my children were in good hands, a priceless feeling.
Leap is more than just a childminder, they have a very good structure to the days and education is very much high on the list. Evidence of this is my first child has gone on to school and already knows lots of the things they are learning.
I highly recommend leap to anyone looking for a childminder.
Thankyou again to all the leap family, we will miss you all!
Fifi has been working with us now for over 9 months and she has become a hugely valued and loved part of our family. She regularly comes to help us in the mornings and occasional full days too, and our 2 boys aged 5 and 2 absolutely adore her as do our 2 Cane Corso dogs! When our boys are with Fifi they’re always so busy going for walks or going to the park or doing arts and crafts etc. She's incredibly proactive and efficient and always seems to know what jobs need doing before being asked. My work schedule can change at anytime and Fifi always tries to be as flexible as possible which is invaluable to us as we have no family to support us with childcare. I simply cannot put into words how lucky we are to have found her!
Tola is more like a family member now rather than my daughter’s childminder. She’s very passionate about looking after children and I saw this through my daughter because she’s always so happy when I drop her off and when I pick her up. My daughter really adores her and I cannot express through words how amazing Tola is. Thank you so much for being so wonderful.
I was so nervous about putting my little boy into childcare but as soon as I went to visit sues house I was instantly put at ease. Sue and the girls are amazing, they’re so welcoming and my little boy absolutely loves it.
His day is always full of fun and they send you lovely pictures of what they’ve been up to which is so nice to see. If you want your children to go to a caring, home from home this is definitely the place. My little boy has come on so much since starting sues house. Thank you for everything guys :) xxx
Linda’s had our little boy for nearly 3 years now, and he has had such a lovely experience! Linda really knows the children she looks after and she has supported with speech, reading, colours and so much more. Our child loves it there and is always so excited to be there since they do so many different activities in such a caring setting. She really takes the time to have conversations about progress, what is going well and the areas where more support would be helpful. We are moving away from the area but are so sad to be leaving and will definitely be staying in touch!
Well what can I say about sues House?
My oldest has attended, and now my middle child is attending.... and baby 3 will be attending! All from the age of 9months up to pre / school years. And all attend during the school holidays as well.
When the mum guilt hit in about returning to work and leaving my 9 month old in childcare, I knew I wanted a home from home, somewhere which could provide cuddles on the sofa when needed, structured and free play, cuddles with a book and more one to one care.... and that's what my children gets at sues.
As parents both our jobs are shift based / change in shift patterns / have to stay behind at work at short notice. Sue has always been understanding of this, and has always tried to accommodate our shift work.
Sue house provides my children with a warm, safe, caring and loving environment for them to grow, learn and to be cared in.
I know when my children are there, they are well cared for and having fun !
Always fed with lovely home cooked meals.
I have always been up dated regularly throughout the day of the kids actitives.
And regularly up dated with the kids key workers for developmental up dates as well. I feel like I could express any concerns to sue. Laura, lois, or nikki and these would be listened to and addressed straight away!
The kids often go on outings... examples include, jump, soft play, shopping, park, and to the cafe, etc. And they both love going in sues big van !
Sue and her team, nikki, Laura and lois, work hard to provide the children with different actitives each day, being it inside house, the summer house, and garden.
I can't thank sue and the girls enough for all their care that they have provided my children over the years !
Choosing Nawal and team to look after our daughter was an easy decision, and the best we ever made! She’s been with Nawal for almost 2 years, and loves her and the team as family. She runs in with a smile, eats well, does lots of engaging activities and has made amazing friends. She’s flourished under wonderful care and the whole environment is homely and full of love. This made returning to work much easier for me, and it’s lovely to see the bond our daughter has with Nawal.
My daughter has been at TW kids for nearly a year, and I can't recommend them enough. Susanna takes all the children's health and safety very seriously, while still remaining very warm, approachable and nurturing.
Susanna has hired some really wonderful caregivers who I have complete confidence in. I think there is a good balance of structured play and free chilled play. It's a cosy home away from home vibe, and we love it!
Lucia has cared for our son for 10 months as part of his Childminder’s team but has also cared for him at our home in the evenings. Lucia is calm and caring and we have felt completely comfortable leaving our son with her. He often talks about her and I know will miss her as we move house.
My daughter started going to Murdina’s at the beginning of 2022. From day one she loved it! We increased her from one day a week to two days a week.
Murdina sent photos daily, took them on outings, lots of sensory and arts and crafts along with details of her development and milestones. Hollie came on leaps and bounds with the help of Murdina. It was like a second home for her. She’s made lots of friends big and small and always left with a smile on her face.
I couldn’t fault Murdina in the slightest. She is an absolute dream and I would trust her with Hollie no matter what!
If your looking for a childminder then look no further!!! If I could give more than 5 stars I would!
Absolute amazing service and women.
Thank you so much!!!!
My little one has been with Tara since he was 10 months old. He is now 2 and a half. She has been so caring and loving to him and she’s bought him out of his shell by encouraging and motivating him. I couldn’t ask for a better carer for my little one. Tara is very kind, flexible and understanding and all the kids she looks after are delightful. We will definitely miss you 💜
We think ourselves extremely lucky to have found Sam almost 7 years ago. She has looked after both of our children from babies up until recently when they have both flown her nest to primary school.
Sam is simply amazing, our little ones adore her (as do we) and they developed extremely well, both mentally and emotionally in her care. Sam manages to find enough love for every little one she has and works with each child’s individual needs.
Our children had the best experience with Sam and a great start to life in her care!
Thank you Sam.
My little boy (20 months) has been with Lynne for 6 weeks now & the boost in his confidence in such a short space of time is amazing! He can’t talk yet & Lynne is working with me to help his speech which i’m so thankful for. He just loves going to Lynne & enjoys all the days out she takes them on! So much love, care & thought goes into her activities both inside & outside her setting & I’m so lucky i managed to secure my boy a place with Lynne ❤️
We are delighted to share our experience with the childcare provided by Kirsty. As parents, finding reliable and nurturing care for our son has been a top priority, and we couldn't be happier with the outstanding level of care and attention he has received. He has been at Kirsty's for over a year now and he loves going there.
Our son has seamlessly settled into Kirsty's setting, and it's clear that he genuinely enjoys the time spent with her and his friends.
The overall atmosphere created by Kirsty is warm and nurturing. It's evident that the caregiver's dedication goes beyond mere professionalism; there is a genuine passion for fostering the well-being and growth of the children in her care. Her home is always clean and tidy and she provides a great range of toys and activities. The children spend a lot of time outdoors and in her lovely garden, which was very important for us. He loves showing us new things he made at Kirsty's.
We cannot recommend Kirsty enough and are happy that our son will be with her for the foreseeable future.
My son has been with Sarah since September, because I’m a shift worker, he’s with her a few times a month as he goes to nursery as well. But we are not leaving her !
Despite this he has really settled with her and he loves and has the best time ever at Sarah’s house (his words not mine). She makes learning a fun and enjoyable process, not just learning about the ABC’s, but social and life skills, the importance of being a good human being, kindness and friendship. They are always out and about busying themselves with lots of activities which he absolutely loves. Sarah is genuine, kind, helpful, flexible and is always keeping me up to date! I love that she uses the childminding app as I feel a part of his day.
So even though I miss him I know he’s in safe hands, so I don’t worry.
Sarah also has an amazing daughter who has such a sweet nature. I could not recommend her enough. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
My little boy has been going for around 7 months I think, and he’s come on leaps & bounds!
He really struggled to go when he first started as he’s only been used to me, and seeing him start to get comfortable and walk in with no issues was just fabulous! His speech has come on so much, and he loves his time at Sue’s house! I love seeing updates in the private WhatsApp group parents are in, it’s so nice knowing when I’m at work he’s having such a good time! 🏼
