Below are the latest reviews for Samantha. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.

Our two children (2 and 4.5) have been going to Sam’s for just over a year and there aren’t enough positive things we can say. She plans amazing days for the kids combining education and fun, she looks after them as if they were her own. They love her (we only have to mention it’s a ‘Sam day’ to our youngest and she gets her shoes out and can’t wait to go). We are going to be very sad to not send the kids to Sam anymore as we are moving to another county, but we haven’t yet given up hope of persuading her to move too! Be in no doubt, if your children are minded by Sam they will have a very happy and educational time.

My son loves going to Samantha's. He feels very comfortable with her. I would highly recommend her. She is a nice reliable person.

My 3 year old son has been attending childcare with Samantha since September 5 days a week after nursery in the afternoons. He has loved every moment and can't wait to go the following day. Samantha has been reliable and offers a great service where I have seen great progress in my son's special needs. The environment offers great opportunities for growth and development not only academically but socially too.
I would highly recommend her to everyone as a reliable, professional organisation who will go beyond 'the norm'.

My 3 year old son has been going to Samantha since September to be dropped off at nursery 3 times a week. He loves going in the mornings and is always telling me the things he’s got up to even in the short amount of time he is there. Couldn’t have asked for anyone better.

My son attends Samantha's childcare on iset days ect.... He suffered from a young age with stranger and separation anxiety but you would never think this when he's at Sam's.
Sam always promotes independence in a caring environment, my son has blossomed and now attends nursery with great confidence due to His experience here with Sam.
