Below are the latest reviews for Sangeeta. 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.

Our son was with Sangeeta and Vijai for 18mths. We moved him as we moved home out of the area. They cared and developed our son better than we could have! They're understanding, patient and provide a happy, spotless, calm home. They are flexible, kind and great at developing children. Every other child was always so happy too. No shouting, raised voices, just firm affirmations from both Sangeeta and Vijai. They were more than just childminders, they cared for our son as one of their own and I know they do that with all the children. Our son has life threatening allergies and never once had a severe reaction due to their understanding and vigilance. We are eternally grateful and genuinely gutted we are moving him. They provide a home from home (with better toys and more activities).

We were so fortunate to find such a lovely setting with a caring and very professional childminder.
My children loved their time here, they were very well looked after. The setting is clean and very hygienic, the food is freshly prepared.
The activities are excellent and varied, my children would not stop talking about their daily experiences.I was kept informed daily on every aspect of my children's care.
I highly recommend Sangeeta and her setting, all you requirements under one roof.

I highly recommend Sangeeta as a childminder. She works with her assistant, Vijai, that is her husband. Their childcare, so, is offered in a very warm, loving and fun family environment where, sometimes, also their 3 children are involved nicely, interacting with the other children. Definitely, my children love to spend time with all of them. When they started their growing experience with Sangeeta as their childminder, 3 years ago, Oisin was 3 years old and Tobia was only 7 months old. I definitively can say that Sangeeta is also reliable and a very experienced childminder. With the help of her husband she organises art and craft projects, learning activities, going out for a walk or play groups. Their house and garden are also very well resourced with interesting games for the children to do, focused on different area of learning. They are also very good to encourage the children to interact with each other and with adults so Oisin and Tobia were ready to go when they had to start the Pre-School and then the School.

I’ve recommended these childminders to several people who have now used Sangeeta and Vijai. They do so many activities with the children so when my sons are with them they do much more creative learning than when they are at home with me! They take their roles very seriously and are very organised and keep you updated with progress sheets on a weekly basis. My youngest always talks about the different groups he goes to and the activities he's done with Sangeeta. It was Sangeeta who persuaded my youngest son to eat his greens.
