What Parents Think


"My daughter has been attending Maryland for the last 4 years and adores Mary and Nando even asks to go there at the weekend. They have a fantastic family atmosphere and have cared for Millie as if she was one of the family. Highly recommended"


"Mary and Nando have been looking after Riyan for almost a year now and have been absolutely amazing! Every day looks so fun and and and he loves it. I feel confident sending him to Maryland as they look after him like he is part of the family. The best childcare around!"


We loving our little 8 month old Son at Maryland. It is a true home to home environment, very caring and I get kept up to date by pictures all day long so I know what my child is up to. We adore the fact they have such a big open garden for the children to play and speak Spanish to them too! Brilliant in every way! Also I never worry with my Sons allergy as they are experienced.

"Mary and Nando have looked after my eldest daughter Maria from 18months and my second, Eli from 10 months. Both girls absolutely loved it! As soon as I'd dropped them off I knew they were in safe hands and were going to have a ball! Mary is a great at using her experience to monitor their development and to ensure that they are on track. After a bad experience with Maria's previous childminder I was apprehensive to go with another one but once I found Maryland I never looked back. Would thoroughly recommend them!"

Rob Frost

"Maryland has been an absolute blessing for us, we always heard good things about them and our 3 year old absolutely loves going there. We couldn’t be happier with how much she has learnt and developed - not only in her academic skills but also in her social development and she even picked up some Spanish. We really appreciate the homemade wholesome food which has encourage our daughter to try new things such as bulgar wheat and goulash. I love how happy my daughter is when I collect her each day and highly recommend Maryland. They were a big shining light during the pandemic, in a nice exclusive location and at that time what they did for our daughter gave us all so much. Finally Mary and Nando are wonderful people, it’s been a joy to have them helping raise our daughter"

Helen Rutt

"Mary and Nando are just incredible. My son is about to turn 3 and has been with them since 9 months. I wouldn’t have anyone else help me raise him. He speaks Spanish, can count to 20, and can recognise letters and numbers. Mary and Nando feed him very nourishing food, structures his day, communicates constantly and effectively with me and fills his day with exploring, experience and education. He is social, caring and confident. And that all comes from Maryland. I can and will always recommend Mary and Nando as childcare that is as close to family as can be."

Charlotte B

"My child has been attending Maryland for the past month, I can honestly say Jax is so happy to be there. He loves Mary and Nando and really feels at home, they have an amazing facility that allows him to explore and learn new things every day. Highly recommend to any parent!"


"Our son Elias has been at Maryland for a year now and has loved every day there. The range of educational and fun activities, the outdoor play, the home cooking, and the warm and welcoming environment have all been factors in his development - coming along leaps and bounds. Couldn’t recommend this place enough."

Don Porter

"My wife originally organised the taster session with Mary and Nando for our 7 month old, Duke. Duke absolutely loved his first session with Mary and Nando. At collection he came out very happy and buzzing which was great to see. The space, equipment and location is great. It is child friendly, safe and well run. As parents, my wife and I are very pleased and look forward to continuing our journey with Mary and Nando."
