Emma - Bournemouth
Reviewed

Emma is an amazing and trustworthy babysitter.
My child isn't small, so I didn't have any high expectations regarding engagement vs screen time while we were out.
To my astonishment my son chose to spend the 9 hours they had together interacting and playing board games over PlayStation with his friends (this never happens).
This illustrates that he felt extremely comfortable with Emma, even though it was their first time together.

Sarah cared for my 3 year old and one year old for an entire day and did an excellent job. They were well cared for, fed, they played outside, and did crafts too! They had such fun. Sarah kept us updated throughout and was great with communications. Highly recommend!

There are not enough stars to rate Sarah highly enough!

Our now three year old has gone to Sarah for almost a year now, and I couldn’t be more happy with the care she provides. Our son absolutely loves spending the day with her, and she offers such a wide range of activities for the children. Every day, the children are taken out to a group, activity, or class. They frequently have picnics or lunch out, and when at home, Sarah cooks a meal for them.
Her house is perfectly set for little ones, as is her car for transporting them from place to place, providing all the carseats needed for travel so that parents don't need to.

Sarah really settled my nerves when leaving my child for the first time with her, by providing frequent check-ins throughout the day, letting me know what they were doing, nap times, what he’d been given for lunch, and any other details that she thought we’d like to know. She has continued to do this every day since, and it really makes a huge difference, knowing that he is happy, enjoying his day, and eating well. I love getting pictures of my child seeing him having an amazing day with his friends and with her.

Thank you Sarah for the significant part you have played in our son’s toddler years so far. We have loved having you look after O.

Sarah’s flexibility has also helped us out a number of times, when needing last minute childcare on days we wouldn't normally need, changing hours, or childcare over the school holidays. She really goes above and beyond to help where she can, and we are so grateful to have this.

There is no doubt. She is absolutely fabulous.

Karen - Aberdeen

Karen has looked after my daughter since she was 18months old, now 5 and a half and away to start school, I can honestly say Karen has been an absolute gem! Her home is fantastic, such a beautiful setting with plenty of educational toys, arts and crafts, a huge garden with so much to do and she is always keeping the kids busy with weekly activities. Encourages new eating habits, manners and looks at all the children as if they are her own. Adapting to new and challenging behaviours and discussing ways in which could benefit us all.

My daughter and I have developed an amazing relationship with Karen, and we see her as family and I cannot thank her enough for her endless support to both Raeya and I. With our recent ASD diagnosis, it has been a pleasure having her be apart of our journey. I am so thankful to have such an amazing childminder who has put things at ease for me, all these years throughout my daughter’s time in her care. She truly has gone above and beyond to help, learn and support us. Thank you again Karen, hope to stay in touch. We will both miss you incredibly!!

Noor has been an amazing childminder for our baby, taking care of him from ~6 months old, she has seen him grow and helped him develop! He absolutely adores Noor! :) Her setting is great, there is outdoor space, indoor play area where they play together (including water play and painting!), sing and read, and she’ll take them out to parks if weather permits! We have had a great experience with Noor - she will always hold a dear spot in our hearts!

Claire came to help us for my brothers wedding in Tenby and she was absolutely incredible! She was great with my 8 month old twins and kept to our routine amazingly and also brought a huge box of activities for our 2.5 year old and my nieces staying in the same house :) she was super calm and relaxed and it made us feel so at ease as we had never used childcare.com before! I would 100% recommend her to friends and family and we will always be in contact for future holidays up to wales :)

We have loved having our daughter in Dionne's care. Dionne and her team are all so brilliant and loving to the children. The range of activities they offer and the effort they put in is so impressive. We've never had to raise a single concern in our time with Dionne. We're so grateful for how happy she has made our daughter and sad that it's time for our daughter to move on.

Lisa looked after my little boy from 10 months up until he started school. I’m so glad I made the choice in trusting her with him. My little one loved his days at cheeky chops and they love care and attention he received from Lisa was outstanding, no two days was the same as Lisa was always out and about with the children taking them on different adventures and experiences. I would highly recommend cheeky chops too anyone and if asked my first response is 100% Lisa.

LRS1987 - Norwich
Reviewed

On 28th of June she has confirmed her weekend hours and dates with me to start work. She asked for my address few times. I sent her my address, on 13th of July, just before the school holidays and 2 weeks after our agreement of work she sent me a text that she can not commit to work on weekends. She just wasted my 2 weeks and just before school holiday, its totally unfair and unacceptable behavior. I could have got other Nannies had she said that earlier on. Very dodgy and unreliable Nanny. I'd ask childcare.co.uk to look into this person's unprofessional attitude.

Helen - Hereford
Reviewed

We had the pleasure of having Helen as our wonderful babysitter during our recent trip to the UK for a wedding. She was an absolute lifesaver for us and went above and beyond in every possible way to help us with our 6-month-old baby. She even spent hours cuddling our sleeping infant in her arms so that we (in particular, Mum!) could attend the wedding without having to leave early.

Helen instantly made us feel comfortable and was kind, knowledgeable, and competent. Her experience and confidence with infants was evident, and we felt completely comfortable leaving our little one in her capable hands. Her level of communication was incredibly reassuring and we can't thank Helen enough for her outstanding service. She made our trip so much more enjoyable and stress-free. If you're looking for a reliable, considerate, and experienced babysitter, we highly recommend Helen. She is simply the best! I wish she lived nearer so I could employ her services permanently!

I am writing to express my gratitude and positive feedback for the exceptional care provided to my daughter at your daycare. She is always well-cared for and well-fed, consistently returning home happy and eager to go back. Zafreen and Yasmim are always affectionate and welcoming towards her. Knowing she is in such good hands allows me to work or handle other matters with peace of mind. I am truly grateful to have you all taking care of my most precious treasure while I need to work. Thank you! I highly recommend your services.

Carman is a really lovely, kind person and we were lucky to have her as our son’s Cantonese teacher and babysitter for a few months. She has background in teaching children with special needs and is very experienced with children and very reliable and also safety conscious. She was great at keeping our son extremely engaged and also got him excited about learning Cantonese which was great. She also taught him about tidying up which was amazing 😊 we really look forward to seeing her again and fully recommend her as a babysitter.

Tadiwa - Manchester
Reviewed

Tadiwa was our nanny for a few months when we moved to Manchester earlier this year. She is a gentle soul and was very kind and patient and good humoured with our son. She was extremely reliable and responsible and very flexible, always putting our needs first. We really appreciated having her as part of the family and are so so grateful that we met her when we did. We really look forward to seeing her again soon and really recommend her as a nanny or babysitter 😊

My son started just before his 2nd bday and I was terrified of going back to work and had the mum guilt, Reg was like a Velcro toddler and wouldn’t leave my side but since starting with Keeley he has come along leaps and bounds in every aspect. Speech, behaviour, learning, everything. Within minutes of meeting Keeley all of my worries disappeared and I knew she was ‘the one’ it’s such a beautiful setting at Love 2 grow and it’s a genuinely loving happy environment for children of all ages. My son now aged 2 and a half now looks forward to going for the day and runs in without even a goodbye. The woman deserves a medal!!

Tinas Childminding - Great Wyrley
Reviewed

My son has just left Tina’s due to starting school in September and I am so confident that he is school ready due to his time spent with Tina, Eloise and Carol. The structure in the day means they have provided the perfect mix of playing and education. I have only been with Tina for 5 months due to moving my son from another setting and the progress he has made in such a short space of time is amazing. He has made lots of friends, worked on his eating by trying lots of new foods and his concentration and perseverance with trying new challenges has improved. He comes home with activities he has done throughout the day which he is always proud to show off! He also brings home activities to complete over the weekend which he loves. The thought that Tina puts into preparing the older children for school is brilliant. I have recently had a baby who will be with Tina as of next year when I return to work and I am confident she will be cared for as well as my son has! If i could rate more than 5 stars I would!

I wanted to take a moment to express my heartfelt appreciation for the outstanding care and support provided by Squirrels Day Nursery, particularly in nurturing my 4-year-old daughter.
The staff at nursery have been incredibly supportive, understanding, and patient with my daughter's needs. They have taken the time to build a strong rapport with her, making her feel safe, valued, and included in every aspect of nursery life.
I am truly grateful for the attention and care that my daughter receives at Squirrels Day Nursery. The staff go above and beyond to ensure that she feels comfortable and happy, and their dedication to her well-being is evident in everything they do.
Please extend my sincere gratitude to the entire team for their exceptional work. I am incredibly thankful to have found such a wonderful nursery for my daughter, and I would wholeheartedly recommend Squirrels Day Nursery to any parent seeking a supportive and enriching early childhood experience for their child.

It is not easy to leave our children with a stranger, but it might be necessary sometimes.

When I met Joanne, I had so many doubts, not because of her specifically, but for all situation. Leaving my baby boy with someone I had no idea who was it was hard.

Gradually I started trust in her and I could see António was feeling happier to go to the nursery. After almost 3 months, my son is more independent and he can express himself better even with some difficulties he has for now.

I am glad and thankful.

Shannon - Bassetlaw
Reviewed

Shannon has been a Godsend to our family and a wonderful childcare provider to our nearly 3 year old son who absolutely adores her and calls her 'my Shannon"! She has literally catered to our every need regarding childcare, and her ability to be flexible even at the last minute has been truly a blessing. She has helped with feeding, bedtime routine, trips out and much more. We are moving to another place, which is why we don't need her services anymore, but would absolutely recommend her to anyone who needs childcare for their little ones, as she is fun, she is responsive and she educates. I cannot recommend her enough! Thanks 'my Shannon'!

Aliza is an absolute treasure!
Aliza looked after my 4 year old son for 4 days a week for a little under a year and we have nothing but the best to say about her. He can be a very challenging little boy, but she always looked after him like he was her own and we felt very comfortable and safe knowing that he was in good hands. I would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat. She's an absolute blessing.
