Below are the latest reviews for Vanessa3. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk.

We started using Vanessa in January 2012 while we were waiting on placement at another facility. Our daughter is 9 months old and as many know it can be very hard for a little one to get settled in a new place with a new face but not with Vanessa. Payton settled right in very quickly and it only took a half a day. She was always very happy when I picked her up and after about a week was practically leaping out of my arms to greet Vanessa every morning. Vanessa is a lovely woman and very kind and I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone seeking a childminder they can trust and feel comfortabe leaving your child with to nurture and take care of in your absence.

Thank you for loving and caring for my little one when I couldn't be there to do so myself :)

My 5 year old son has been going to Vanessa's since September. He thoroughly enjoys his time there.
Vanessa is great with the children, she provides a stimulating and active, yet safe, environment for them.
Working hospital shifts, my life can become quite hectic but Vanessa is always flexible and willing to help at short notice.
I would recommend Vanessa to anyone if they want their child to become part of a fantastic little childminding 'family', where the children are always happy, fulfilled, valued and respected :-)
