Below are the latest reviews for Maria Cl. 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 am writing in regard to Maria whom I believe is the best choice for your childcare needs.

I have known her four months, during which I have gotten to know her quite well. My child, and all other children who spend time around Maria, have a great deal of fun and are never bored. Her activities for the children are a good mix of educational and fun.

But that is not the quality that makes for a good childcare provider. I feel that Maria is able to walk that fine line between "the fun one" and "the disciplinarian." That is not an easy task, but she manages it with ease, and as such is able to retain the children's respect. Maria’s ability to gain a child's respect convinces me that she is destined to be in this line of work. I trust her implicitly.

Please feel free to contact me if you'd like me to elaborate on anything I have written concerning her, or if you have any specific questions about Maria, I would be happy to discuss her excellent qualifications at length.

My daughter has been going to marias for 9 months now, and she loves it.
She walks in every morning without a glance back at me. Maria really made me and my daughter feel at ease when she first started attending as my daughter hadnt been left with any one else before so I was very nervous.
Maria has helped my daughter through the weaning process by offering her different types of food and also has supported her in her walking. She has great fun with the children and insures they have things to do and takes them out to toddler groups and parks/farms.
Maria is extremley reliable and flexable and most of all enjoys looking after the children. I can relax whilst at work knowing that she is well looked after.
