Below are the latest reviews for Nesh1. 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.

Nesh & her whole family have been incredible in their care for our little boy for over a year - and we've only left to move to another area. We'd highly recommend her to anyone that asked.
He started from when he was about to turn one and immediately the transition was made easy by settling in sessions and quick distractions at the door on drop off. From that point on he's been far less nervous of new settings, and Nesh has really helped us to shape him into a happy confident little boy. He always came home happy, well fed on nutritious and varied food, and often having had a change of clothes from playing outside in the garden which he loves! He adored Nesh, their dog and most of the family too who have all gotten to know him over the year. Nesh uses the babysdays app which is also really useful for updates / pictures and a daily diary. Pre-COVID, Nesh took the kids out a lot to soft play, the farm, and playgroups which was a huge added bonus for us.
Nesh has a beautiful, clean, dedicated setting for the kids with lots of new & well cared for toys and a huge variety of activities.

From the moment I met nesh i was very impressed by her home and the time she took to explain how child minding worked as a first time mum I was very reassured by her. When we decided to use Nesh, drop off day one with my 14 month old was easy as Nesh took charge and distracted my little one with activities. The daily updates on what she had been doing, eating and pictures on a mobile app really worked for me. My daughter was there for 8months and we only moved as she was going to nursery but my daughter really really enjoyed going and I know was stimulated, safe and happy.

We couldn't recommend Nesh and Laura anymore than we do!

Our son was with them for just under a year terribly sad he couldn't stay due to myself having another baby, they are very passionate about the children they look after and always go out of their way to accommodate parents and children as much as they can.

The children were never bored and always seemed to be busy everyday, whether that being home activities or out in the community.

Our son was always happy to go each morning and still smiling when we collected him. They are missed terribly by our son and us!

My daughter has been with Nesh and Laura since she was 8 months old and from the first day I handed her over (crying my eyes out!) she has been happy there. I also got over it! She is now 3½. She comes home exhausted and happy after all the many exciting things she has done that day. Whether that is visits to the local farm, museum, park, soft play or play group as well as plenty of activities in the garden and fields around her house.

Nesh and Laura have created a very safe, happy family oriented environment that clearly the children flourish in. My daughter is so confident these days particularly in new environments and around new people and I absolutely put that confidence down to Nesh and Laura encouraging her the way they do.

Nesh uses an online diary to share stories, photos (nappies and naps when it was relevant) and daily food which is helpful to know. My daughter eats very well there and the cost of this is included in the hourly price.

I agree with other reviews here – both Nesh and Laura seem to make looking after children so easy – they are caring, confident and patient and I feel very fortunate to have them looking after my daughter while I go out to work. Thank you both!

Nesh looked after both of my daughters (3yrs and 1.5 yrs) two days a week earlier in the year and I can honestly say we were extremely happy with the service provided throughout the whole time she had the girls. It was clear from the day we went to meet Nesh that the girls felt comfortable in the lovely environment that is her home, and with Nesh herself, who is experienced, down to earth, friendly, Knowledgeable and just lovely. The girls got taken out every day to different places, got plenty of fresh air and exercise (always went to sleep very well the nights after they'd been there!), and never made a fuss when we dropped them off which for our girls is a big deal! I would happily recommend her to anyone looking for a childminder. Although the girls were only with her for a fairly short time I can say with confidence that you will be making a very good decision in picking her to look after your little ones :-)
