Reviews

Below are the latest reviews for Lulu. 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 wife and I shared the same concerns all parents will have when searching for and selecting a suitable childminder. Will our child be safe, happy, nurtured etc. There is obviously no bigger decision or leap of faith than who to leave your child with. Luckily all concerns were soon alleviated when we first discovered Lu and Roy and since then, as we have watched our happy little girl grow. We cannot believe how lucky we have been to find such amazing childminders right on our doorstep.

Our daughter has flourished within their care and loves going there. She never cries when we drop her off, in fact quite the opposite. We have watched her develop in many ways and are so grateful that we can go to work knowing that she is happy, safe and extremely contented.

Ahead of making our choice we met with a few childminders, all of which were very nice. However, there was something special about the feeling we had when we met Lu and Roy, and our gut feeling was that this was the perfect fit for our daughter.

Unfortunately, our daughter has had some health issues meaning she requires both regular physio and exercises. Both of which have been no trouble to Lu who seems to have made it her personal goal to help our daughter in any way she can. Lu has been actively engaged in physio sessions and has helped our daughter no end through carrying out the regular exercises she requires to help her. Both her and Roy have gone well over and above the duty of care and we cannot thank them enough.

Some of the many benefits of Lu and Roy include:
-Great communication including regular updates on how your child is developing
-Regular activities - games, painting, trips etc
-A great mix of children of various ages and backgrounds
-Superb facilities
-Easy to get to location
-Great meals with lots of variety

We could not recommend or thank Lu and Roy enough. We have a very happy little girl and they are a huge factor in this.

I struggle to find the words to describe how wonderful Lulu is. My daughter started going to her around her first birthday and is now 28 months. She has never cried when I have dropped her off, not once. She absolutely loves it at Lulu’s which says it all. Lulu is so gentle and kind and treats my daughter like her own. I really value Lulu’s advice - she is understanding and flexible at all times.

I didn’t believe that I would ever find someone that I trusted so much to care for my daughter. It is such a relief to go to work without having to worry at all. I can’t recommend Lulu and Roy enough. We are moving away from the area soon and will be devastated to leave Lulu.

My 3 year old started going after our nanny had to leave suddenly. He settled in immediately and Lu was so flexible as we tried to manage a new routine. When nursery was closed for Chistmas school holidays we were able to up his hours, when I forgot to pick him up from nursery (baby brain) she went to get him from nursery and if I was delayed in getting back from London and was late, again no issue.
Jasper ate really well and was really happy there.

My two children have been going to Lou & Roy’s for a year now.
My little girl was only 9 months when she started going to Lous and my other child was 2. Both of them settled in straight away and Lou was great at keeping me updated all through the day while they were settling.
I was really stressing about going back to work and leaving the kids but with Lou and Roy I know I can go to work and don’t have any worries about my kids at all.
My children love going to Lou and Roy’s and are often so excited to go in and get their day started they don’t bother saying bye to me! There has never been a day that my kids haven’t wanted to go and they often ask me if they can go there at the weekend.
My kids have also learnt a lot since being with Lou and have plenty to do and tell me about.
I couldn’t ask for better support as the kids go through different milestones.
Lou and Roy are so friendly and easy to talk to that they feel like good friends and the kids absolutely adore them. I feel so lucky to have found them and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.

My daughter is nearly 2 and been at Lu’s since May 2017 . I couldn’t have found the perfect setting for my daughter she loves it and is coming on so well . My 8 year old son also attends LuLus after school and during school holidays , which he enjoys as he can play outside in the garden , play board games with the other children and can also sit in a quiet area and complete homework .

Lu & Roy are great with the children and provide a lovely warm , cosy home from home environment. With homemade meals daily that the children love.
The playroom has a great range of toys for all ages . My daughter enjoys arts & crafts , cooking and lots of learning through play . All the alcove has delveloped my daughter into a very confident young toddler . The garden is a fantastic space for the children especially in the summer months were the children spend time playing in water , sand , soft play area and with ride ons .

My daughter settled straight into Lus with no tears ever , which is great for a parent to see , she loves them and had a great bond with them just like a family member which they have become , they are always there to help out with any concerns . I am always kept up to date with what my daughter as eaten . Sleeps etc via the diary that is sent home after everyday . Which is great .

I highly recommend Lu & Roy .
