Below are the latest reviews for Alka. 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.

Alka looks after our daughter 4 days a week is absolutely amazing with her. We chose a childminder rather than nursery as we wanted a ‘home from home’ environment and Alka has exceeded our expectations. They have developed a very close bond and our daughter is so happy and content. Alka provides an excellent range of activities, including going to local playgroups, that keeps our child stimulated and aids her development. Alka provides a daily diary which gives us a great summary of the day’s activities and the key skills that had been worked on that day.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Alka to other parents and we feel very fortunate to have such a kind and caring individual looking after our daughter.

The lovely Alka looked after my LO previously when in London. He absolutely adored her. I was previously very nervous about leaving my only child with anyone but I can honestly say its been wonderful. My son has come on leaps and bounds and is a very happy and confident little boy which in part is due to the loving caring support that Alka provided. The peace of mind that it gave me to know that my child was in a happy safe environment, where he was constantly being stimulated and experiencing new fun challenges can not be underestimated. I would definitely recommended her as a great child-minder.
