Below are the latest reviews for Bobby. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk.

Bobby has been extremely helpful to our family of 2 (a 9 year old boy with special needs and a 4 year old girl).

He is extremely patient, skilful, energetic and enthusiastic. He is very good at talking to children and directing them.

Both my children look forward to Bobby coming each week, and it is a real treat for them. He has tutored football to my boy (...and myself!) in both a very professional and natural manner.

Bobby is very easy going with all of the family and engages in many varied activities with efficiency and humour, whether children-led or adult-led, as appropriate. Our children are safe and happy. We could not be more satisfied with his work.

Thank you James and Elsa for your review,
Kind regards,

It is with great sadness that we will lose the services of Bobby who has worked for us for the last year and a half.

Bobby has provided care in our home for our son who is now 8 years old. Completing the school pick up, providing him with a meal after school and ensuring that he completed his homework assignments which included piano practice, monitored reading, spellings and timetables.
Also supervised drop off at Beavers prior to my son moving up to Cubs and supervised our sons attendance at his swimming lesson.
Provided full day care during the half term and summer holidays including days out and activities during the day. He would often bring games from his own home to play with our son as well as our sons own games.

He has shown such patience, understanding and care with our son He is an incredibly conscientious, honest, trustworthy and reliable individual.

He has never let us down or given us any reason for concern. We will all miss him terribly.

However we wish him every success with his new role in his chosen profession and whilst he may not be available to assist us with the care of our son, should we ever need him for babysitting or tutoring he would be the first person we contact, subject to him still being available to provide those services.

I am very happy to provide personal references for this wonderful individual.
