Below are the latest reviews for Grafton. 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 daughter has been going to Grafton house since she was 9 months old and is now 2. She has loved it from the beginning and will be sad when she eventually has to leave. Sarah was our first choice of childminder due to her warm and inviting nature and we felt comfortable leaving our daughter at Grafton House straight away.
I'm always interested to see what they've been up to and impressed with how varied and educational the day to day activities are from museum trips to library sessions and playgroups. We couldn't be happier with our daughters development and know her childcare plays a large part in that.
I would recommend Grafton House to anyone with young children.

Thank you so much for this lovely review x

I can not express how much I love sending my daughter to Grafton House. It is the best decision I have made. My daughter has been going three days a week for a year now. She gets excited every morning and even asks to go on a weekend. As a parent I know that my child is being looked after and have no worries at all.

She does a range of activities and topics and comes home and tells me about it. I receive updates to tell me how she is getting on. I highly recommend Grafton House.
