Below are the latest reviews for MARISA. 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.

I can't rate Marissa highly enough and the development our beautiful daughter has made speaks volumes. She has been extremely helpful when we have been in difficult situations, always going above and beyond what is required.

I understand what it's like to try and chose the right childminder and there are always worries associated, understandably.

I can see that someone has left Marissa a terrible review that has clearly been fabricated to fit their agenda, without realising the damage it can cause to Marissas livelihood. I couldn't disagree with the accusations any more if I tried. She has always been caring and attentive whenever I have turned up early and walked through to the back garden, which I often do.

Our daughter gets excited to go to Marissas and spend time with her daughters and the other children. She loves it there and feels safe, as do I sending her.

Marisa has cared for my 2.5 year old since she was 10 months old and we have seen her develop and grow continously. Both myself and my husband work full time with unexpected time away and she always remains flexible and supportive. My daughter has had several occasions when she has been unwell and Marisa has always taken extra care with her. She has worked safely throughout the pandemic and continued to provide up to date information and advice. My girl adores her children and will be sad to move onto Preschool next year.

My mother went earlier than normal pick up times and she found my son crying in the middle of her garden as Marisa was walking away to attend to children that where happy on a swing. She didn’t even realise that my mum walked up to my son and held him that’s how much she had her back to him. Then after she used a wipe from her pocket that was dry we are in the middle of a pedemic. Then to say to my mum he has had a terrible day but he was calm when he was with her and even when I then saw him later. For that reason l cancelled my sons registration effective immediately. I sent Marisa a message detailing my concerns she only responded 26 hours after which showed me there was no care and GOD knows what was happening before this incident.

I am completely shocked at this review. It is all incorrect information. I was aware of your mother arriving as I receive alerts to my phone anytime some body opens my entrance gate from my ring door , I saw your mum entering the gate on my phone. Your son unfortunately was upset at the time of collection. Which I had 3 other children I was looking after at the same time and your son did not want me to comfort him closely, so he was standing away from me in full view, whilst I put another child into the swing. I had a clean packet of tissues in my pocket specifically for your sons use only. I wanted your mum to be aware that your son, was upset during the day. As I always give an honest update to all parents of how there child has been. My delayed reply to your comment was due to being in complete shock at what you had said. I did not know how to respond to your comment. I feel it is very covenant that you removed your son with immediate effect, the same time your mother has taken over care and stated it is to far to travel for her to bring him to my setting,

Ben, my 1 year old enjoyed having Marisa as his childminder and will miss her. She took care of my son in a very caring and professional manner.
Great enviroment for children to play in. Definitly recommend Marisa.

Thank you so much for your review it was a pleasure to look after your son. He will be truly missed.

We had Marisa looking after our 2 boys for over a year and sadly due to relocation we have to let go of her. My boys absolutely adore her, she's been fantastic in her role, made them happy, created lots of various activities, always out and about. Lots of arts and crafts, fun play, homely & safe environment. Outdoor garden has everything a child could wish for (even own bouncy castle). She's been so caring & accommodating. We highly recommend her to anyone.
