Below are the latest reviews for Sheila77. 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.

My son was 11 months when he started with Nanny Sheila. He was initially in a local nursery and hadn’t settled after many weeks but in Sheila ‘s warm and loving care, he settled quickly and has been very happy there for the past 14 months.

Sheila provides a warm, welcoming clean environment with lots of well maintained educational and fun toys to play with. As well as free play, she provides structured activities such as drawing and play dough as well as phonics and reading. She takes the children out regularly to the library, parks and soft play as well as having lots of fun in the garden when weather permits.

My son has become a confident, independent, well mannered little boy under Sheila’s care.

Sheila is very flexible and reliable, allowing us to change our days regularly as well as adding extra days and has not had a day off sick in the whole 14 months. She has a very calm nature and is very easy to talk to, accommodating our changing needs with ease.

I cannot recommend Sheila highly enough. I just wish I had found her sooner.

We found Nanny Sheila on this website and were initially impressed by the reviews, and so we got in touch. We met with Sheila and a few other childminders to decide who to go with for our son’s childcare. It was easy to see how caring Sheila is and she was very understanding of our needs and preferences - particularly not knowing initially exactly how many days we would be leaving our son with her. Sheila has been extremely flexible and has allowed us change the days at short notice and to add extra days when needed - dependent of course on the other kids she looks after.

Our son started at Sheila's when he was 7.5 months and has thrived under her care. Sheila is very patient, compassionate and enthusiastic. Our little boy loves going to Nanny Sheila’s and is extremely excited to see her and her sons. There is routine to the day at Sheila’s but she also accommodates moods and our son’s changing sleeping patterns.

We had originally planned to transfer our son to a nursery after he turned one but we have been so pleased with the care that he receives at Sheila’s that we have changed our minds, and our son’s now been going to Sheila’s for over 8 months.

I chose Shelia to be my childminder for my daughter. After looking on this website. She first became my childminder when my daughter was 3yrs old now she is 51/2. I felt immediately at ease having seen how well my daughter took to her. She is always happy to go and never in a hurry to leave. That’s how comfortable and a great relationship she is with Shelia. Shelia has a really lovely, child friendly approach manner with all the children in her care. She is kind, calm and patient. She has taken my daughter on numerous trips and days out. She provides a wide, fun range of activities including plenty of outdoor exercise.

Shelias home is always welcoming, clean and well organised and my daughter has great fun playing with all the toys available and with the other children in her care.

We have moved out the area however Shelia is still my first choice for childcare during the hoildays. I know I made absolutely the right choice because my daughter is so happy there and really loves Shelia.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Shelia to look after your children. I am more than satisfied with everything she does with my daughter and that she is providing a safe environment.

My son has been looked after by Sheila since he was about two years old. He settled in very quickly thanks to her warm character and expertise in caring for children. Her own three boys have always been lovely role models for my son, and he considers them as family now. Sheila is extremely flexible and understanding of the challenges for working parents. I've swapped days on a monthly basis, as well as timings, and she has always been incredibly accommodating. My son is very active and thus enjoys being with Sheila, as she is always on the move, bouncing from one activity to another, visiting the local libraries, soft play, parks and other childminders. Being a single child, my son's social skills have developed immensely in the last year, and I feel that he is now equipped to start school with strong foundations, thanks to his wonderful childminder. My son will still be partly looked after by Sheila next year, as she agreed to drop him to school in the moorings and pick him up at the end of the day. I truly wish I had found her earlier, and I would recommend her warmly to any parent looking for one of the best childminder in the area.

When I found Miss Sheila (lucky she had a opening) I was extremely happy. My final test was whether my baby would feel comfortable. And he did instantly.

Sheila (Nanny) is the best childminder I have had. I have used a few over the years but none compare to Sheila. She is very friendly and personable, professional and reliable. I've never known her to stay in like some minders too. She is always out and about with the children she looks after which I think is amazing as she continues to provide the activities that us parents would love to during the day while you're at work.

My son has matured and learnt so much thanks to sheila, he's at the age where he picks up everything and he has grown into the intelligent young man I knew he would be, thanks to Miss Sheila of course.

I'm devastated that I am taking a break from using her services but as soon as my circumstances change I will quickly get my son wit Sheila again.

Get in touch. You won't regret the decision. X
