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.
Khyati is an excellent childminder. She has a very friendly personality. She is always kind and cheerful. My little boy loved to stay with her and with her cute little daughter. Khyati is that awesome person who you always can count on when you need help! Her setting is well-equipped and safe. I can highly recommend Khyati!

Becca is great. Our daughter loves her. She's our first child so it was our first experience with a childminder and Becca made it a really lovely warm experience. We'd get lots of updates, and the updates were specific and personal and we really felt at ease. She was always on hand to answer questions, and our daughter has really thrived under Becca's care. Thank you Becca, we'll all miss you!
I worked with Chell at a nursery so was already fully aware of her professionalism and care she has for children. Her knowledge and focus on exploring and development lead activities is what also made Chell an easy choice to look after my daughter. Would highly recommend!!
My little boy has been with Kayleigh for 2 years now, and he has come on leaps and bounds since being with her.
The setting is lovely, homely but educational and everything is labelled. The children help make their own snacks which teaches them to be independent, and she has kept an amazing log book with photos of my son's achievements.
I considered a nursery at first, but now I have used Kayleigh I wouldn't use anyone else. She is absolutely fab.
She sends pictures during the day, and she is brilliant with the EY framework
I highly recommend her to anyone who wants their child to be in a safe, secure environment
Our son was due to be starting with Chell in October for school holidays only. However we received notification that seashells couldn’t do the October half term our sons first date. As service could not be started until the next holidays I asked for a amendment to the contract. Seashells were rude and responded with no and your place has been withdrawn a complete over reaction. The. She proceeded to block me on the childcare website. All we wanted was a minor amendment to the contract.
Totally unbelievable and complete overreaction to a perfectly fine question. DO NOT GO TO THIS CHILDCARE PROVIDER.
Bex is an absolute gem. She regularly helps me by looking after my 10 year old son with ASD and ADHD. My son is high maintenance and extremely bright and most people just don't cut it with him and he loses trust easily. Bex is different. He actually likes spending time with her which is amazing and so important to me. She never lets us down and is a true asset. Anyone would be lucky to have her as a baby/childsitter.
Nat and her team are so welcoming and friendly. My son william who is 11 month settled in striaght away and created a lovely friendship with Peter one of the assistants. They helped put my mind at ease when i went back to work by sending updates to say how he was doing etc. I had never left him with anyone before hand apart from his dad. Brilliant with the kids and provide a lovely time from home experince.
Lyn looked after our son Louie 2 days a week from just 10 months until he turned two. She was 100% reliable and we never had any worries or problems when he was there.
As well as caring for him beautifully Lyn took Louie on some amazing adventures out, got him involved in exciting crafts and contributed much towards his learning and development, noting his milestones with us.
I can’t really praise her more highly and was so pleased Louie spent some of this important time in his life with Lyn.
My daughter was with Diane and Jade from the age of one year old and absolutely loved her time with them! They settled her in quickly and she felt like part of a big family with them and the other children of all ages! She loved the cat and dog too!
We loved the homely environment provided with fun toys, craft activities and interesting activities out in the garden, as well as trips out too! Home-cooked meals were brilliant!
She was always excited to go there and we couldn’t have asked for a better childminder to look after our little one and help nurture her at such a young age.
We really appreciated great communication with us and all the love given to our daughter.
Our daughter misses them all now that she has moved on to pre-school.
Joanne looked after my 3 year old daughter for an academic year. My daughter loved being cared for by Joanne and was always excited to see her. Joanne is a fantastic childminder and goes above and beyond, taking my daughter to assemblies and schools activities so I could meet them there from work. She is always on top of what is happening within school which is very, very helpful. The facilities that Joanne has provided are so homely, educational and fun. I would highly recommend Joanne as a childminder.

Dorota has been childminding my son since 2015. I have been very happy with care my son received and the great progresses he has made whilst in Dorota's care. Dorota.'s house is always welcoming, clean and well organised .
My son has great fun playing there.
I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND DOROTA AS A GREAT AND RELIABLE CHILDMINDER!!!!!!
Motia has been looking after my 3 year old daughter since February 2019, and also her older sister during school holidays.
I don't have a single criticism regarding Motia or the care she has provided, everything had been brilliant. She provides such warm and loving care for the girls, and you can see that she genuinely loves children. My girls are always excited to go to her house. She makes a lot of effort doing things with them, such as little art projects and picking fruit in the garden. The girls are always coming home with things they've made and drawings etc. I feel so lucky that we found Motia when we did, and I would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone.

Chloe looked after my 2 children aged 8 & 4 the other evening. I felt relaxed leaving my children in her care as she is down to earth friendly and very professional. The kids loved her, which is an added bonus. chloe is very reliable and punctual. Will definitely be using her services again! Couldnt praise her enough. Thankyou so much. x
My daughter was at Watership Down Nursery from 10 months to 3.5yrs and my son was there from 9 months to 18 months. They absolutely loved it and skipped in each day. The staff are friendly, kind and loving to the children and it is great that it isn't too big. We have relocated and my daughter still talks about them all the time. I highly recommend this nursery.
I have two boys aged 6 and 2 ½. Joanne has cared for both since babies on a full-time basis and has not only provided fantastic childcare but goes above and beyond by making a loving, caring environment at a level that you would expect from family, it is truly a home from home.
Joanne provides a vast number of activities and caters to the interests and development of each child. Both my children love their time with Joanne, especially in the holidays.
Michelle and Akos have been looking after my 9 and 6 year old, before and after school since January when we returned to the UK from living overseas. My daughter had only ever known me to be at home so I was concerned about her settling. I need not have worried, on our initial visit Akos and Michelle were so warm and welcoming that she never once wobbled about bring left (although her instant love for Mabel the chihuahua helped!)
Michelle and Akos have been amazingly flexible around my anti social work start times and helped me so much with dropping the kids home when I injured my back in the summer. Nothing was ever too much trouble.
I’m gutted that they have now moved to Oakham but we wish them, Emily and the dogs/bunnies and ducks all the best in their new home. If you are looking for peace of mind with a childminding service I 100% recommend Rutland Rainbows!
