Happy Parents & Nurseries



Pamela was really helpful and present for us, we only had one week to find someone and even on short notice, she managed to find us a babysitter. Our daughter had a really great time with Gillian and we felt really at ease leaving her for the first time. I would really recommend Lothian Childcare Solutions to anyone.


Pamela was so helpful, talking me through my options, and being very honest and supportive about the best childcare solutions for us as a family. I would highly recommend!


During our recent holiday to Edinburgh from the US, we had an excellent sitter from Lothian Childcare Solutions. Pamela was great to work with from a distance and my daughters had a great time with their caregiver while we had a much needed night out. Easy to work with, honest, professional - highly recommend!


I needed a babysitter very last minute, Lothian childcare solutions were able to match a suitable babysitter at short notice. Laura arrived bang on time and was excellent with my 2 boys. She had excellent communication and let me know how the boys were doing. Thank you, Laura and Lothian childcare solutions.


Thank you very much for the fantastic support. It was a pleasure working with you. You provided an excellent and very professional services. I will be definitely recommending your agency.


My children have only ever been looked after by family members so using a sitter service was really nerve wracking. Pamela is so professional and great yo deal with and she found us the perfect sitter in Carol. My children had a fantastic time with her and were both happily tucked up in bed for us coming home. I couldn't reccomend Lothian Childcare Solutions more highly. Thank you

We called Pamela again as we had an evening planned out again and once again she didn't fail on sending us the amazing Ellie! My daughter thoroughly enjoyed having Ellie sit and I even got a message while we were out from my daughter to say they had been busy doing things and making cookies even including my 2 1/2 year old son. We kept in contact during the evening and felt our kids were in safe hands, we would love to have Ellie back to sit again she was fantastic. Thanks to Pamela for a great service once again


Mother's helper service: we used this service for a few months when I was unwell. Our mother's helper came for 3 hours every week and played with my three children while I rested or got a job done. She was excellent with my girls, and it was wonderful having someone I knew I could trust take them out to the park and do things with them that I was unable to do at that time. She helped me recover more quickly than I would have done without her help. Pamela is very thoughtful in matching you up with a helper and chose the perfect person for us. She is so willing to help and will do whatever she can. I highly recommend the Mother's Helper service.


Thank you so much for your wonderful service. I have been extremely impressed from start to finish with the efficiency and organisation of getting the childcare in place so easily even though it wasn’t a regular booking and finding a perfect match based upon my requirements. Ellie was absolutely fantastic today with my boys she was extremely professional and reliable but also warm, kind, and had a fabulous way with them. She showed a keen interest in them as individuals which was really nice given their ages (11 and 9). She got in touch in advance and checked important information too such as allergies and contact details and likes/ dislikes which was very thoughtful. A great service and I would not hesitate to use you again or recommend you or Ellie in particular. Thank you so much

The wedding was great thanks, and Aimee was fantastic! She put me completely at ease as soon as she arrived, and also kept me updated with how things were going which was massively appreciated. A slept through the night and seemed very happy the next morning so I am confident she did an excellent job of looking after him! Would definitely recommend her to anybody looking for a babysitter in the Edinburgh area. Thanks so much for setting it all up.


Thank you so much Pam for everything you have done and are doing for us. We are very glad Christy has agreed to come on board with us Thanks again

Jane was fantastic, we couldn’t have asked for anymore! C was still awake both nights as he was so excited, but Jane settled him and got him to bed without any trouble. She really did go above and beyond we will definitely recommend to friends and family in the future and of course we will defo use again when needed Thank you again x


Cameron was fantastic! The boys had a great time. Thank you!

Hi Pamela I was going to send you a message tomorrow to say thank you for all your help from start to finish.

Hi Pam I would really like to pass on some positive feedback regarding Tom. Tom got on extremely well in the nursery with the staff and children. The children warmed to him very quickly and he engaged well with them, often hiding inside a box or going to him for a cuddle and reassurance. Tom's nature was calm and the children appeared very relaxed around him. It was lovely to see how easily the children responded to him, especially allowing him to be involved in their play. Thanks

Oh Pam, I can’t tell you what this morning has meant to me. Holly was absolutely brilliant. I spent the whole morning listening to S giggling away. I felt Holly was completely unphased by the fact that S only slept for 20 mins and it was raining all morning. S obviously loved his time with Holly. But for me personally I was able to spend a morning completely focused on work without any worries or concerns and knowing that S was not only in good hands but also having a great time. That means so much for me. Thank you for finding Holly and matching us up.

Ruth was amazing with the children, and so kind & thoughtful with them all. She was super organised and professional. Huge thanks to you Pam for your super efficient and professional service as ever Thank you again x


Hi Pamela Just wanted to say a huge thanks for putting us in touch with Jess. She was amazing with the kids and fitted in really well in the house, especially as it was our first nanny experience. We have said we would definitely use again and have said the same to her so will be in touch.

It was a pleasure to have Louise in playgroup .....she was lovely with the children and happy to just muck in through the morning. Exactly what I needed.
