Below are the latest reviews for Sandie Bittle. 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.

Sandie and dan are simply amazing I didn't think there were such incredible child care providers out there. They have become like family my children love going there. They always come back smiling. They do so much with the children days out to woodlands, parks the list can go on forever. They are very flexible and provide an outstanding service. So look no further for the best childminders.

My children have recently started with Sandie and dan and I can honestly say this couple are probably the nicest couple I have ever met, so down to earth and clearly take pride in everything they do. My children love it, I was a bit skeptical of using a childminder as my children have been going to a nursery and I thought they wouldn’t adjust, well I was proved wrong. Never have I seen my kids smile so much when I’ve picked them up and my daughter will quite happily tell me what she’s been upto. Flexibility is amazing, and they accommodate my needs so well. I wouldn’t ever hesitate to recommend them to anyone as their care is literally second to none!!! If you want quality care then you need to get in contact with them!!! Thank you guys :)
