I'm very pleased with 365 childminding.Hetal and Hardik are really supporting in all the needs, always responding on all my enquries and they are very flexible with the hours which I couldn't find anywhere else. They are doing amazing job with my son, monitoring his development and write everything in diaries where you can track how your child is doing. My child is happy, always asking if he can go to play with his friends which is a huge response from his side that he is enjoying his time there with all the activities.

365 Childminding has been the best move we made for our 2 year old daughter! The staff are kind and nurturing and treat our daughter like their own child. They have always ensured she is properly cared for from the settling in sessions when it was challenging and emotional to her now routine daily attendance.

When she has been sick, unlike other childcare settings which would call and request that the child is picked up dirty, they made sure she was given a warm bath, cleaned properly and dressed with fresh clothes. We have never seen a childminder care for a child the way they do. Their love for the children is second to none and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone who is looking for a childminder.

As we are Gujarati, they also try to speak to our daughter in our mother tongue to make her feel comfortable in the childcare setting, so it feels homely and she does not feel like she is away from her family.

We can say with confidence that when we drop my daughter to 365 Childminding my mind is at ease and without the slightest of worry. The staff are exemplary and have always gone beyond our expectations to ensure our daughter is fed, educated and had a restful nap.

Our daughter loves going to nursery and always comes home Happy and asks for the staff even on weekends!!

My daughter Just turned 3 and has been attending 365 childminding since the age of 1. They provide an amazing service, with smiling faces. I can see how hard work they do.

My daughter comes home and tells me what she has done at the setting all day activity.
365 childminding provided all training which I was thinking how will we managed with both of us working everyday, like using cutlery, potty, etc. biggest challenging trainings. I am really very happy to say that she refuse to were Nappies in age of 2 years 7 months and she don't wear in nights also.

This place is very safe, have friendly culture and environment. Other good things like they are celebrating the birthdays of kids. Celebrating the all festivals which helps kids to interact and know more about all culture.

I am really happy to have this nursery for my daughter. I can see growth, development and improvement in my daughter.

To keep my child at 365childminding is the best decision ever I have done. They are so lovely people, taking care of food, playing and learning activities for all kids.
They helped our child to learn British language, culture, rules. I always felt happy with my child's growth and learnings from them. They are concentrating on all kind of activities which are benificial to kids. I would say they are making more effort for Child's growth than the School Teachers. Highly appreciated.
