Fun, kind and reliable
"Anouska has worked part and full time as a nanny for us for more than 4 years (since January 2013). At the start I had an 8 month old, and then had another child, they are almost 3 and 5 years old now. She has been an absolutely fantastic nanny, and I highly recommend her. She is extremely hard working, with lots of energy and a good work ethic. She is very kind and caring to our children, and I trust her completely at all times. She is patient, and seems genuinely interested in the children’s development and presents new ways of capturing their attention. She is wonderfully reliable, I cannot remember her ever having a sick day, or cancelling on me for any reason. We are tremendously sad to see Anouska go, but as both children are now in full time childcare her services are no longer required. We feel blessed to have had her, and any employer will be very fortunate to have Anouska work for them in any capacity. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like to hear more about our experience with Anouska."

Friendly & kind
"Kareena has proven to be reliable and conscientious and is welcomed by my family as a valuable source of support when child care is required. Kareena is friendly and kind to the children, and always respectful and considerate of their individual needs. She communicates well with them and us, and has a clear, consistent firm and fair positive attitude. Kareena is resourceful and intuitive, and have the upmost confidence that my children are in safe and happy hands whilst they are with her. I wish Kareena well in finding work in London. I think she'll be an asset to any family that welcomes her."

"To whoever might be interested about this amazing person, My name is Giulia Stones, a mother of three children aged 3,5 and 8 years old. During the years 2015/2016 i had the amazing pleasure to have this talented young lady working for my children as their babysitter. Since the start Lina had a positive approached and always smiled no matter what was happening during the day. She is such a responsible young lady and not once i had problems with her. She had varies responsibilities such as dressing my children for school, picking them up, cooking for them, help them with homework and taking them to bed. Often during the weekend, when both me and my husband where busy, she took my children out to enjoy themselves. Lina has many qualities skills that makes her such a god candidate for a babysitting position.First of all, she speaks 4 languages (Italian, Spanish, English and Arabic). this helped me a lot as my children where half Italian and half English so she was able to communicate with my children with her Italian knowledge. Secondly, the fact that she used to look after her 6 younger brothers and sisters, that i believe have different ages makes her knowing so much about looking after young people as well as knowing how they behave thanks to her degree in psychology. Unfortunately, we had to give up this talented babysitter because me and my famly relocated in the stated and we couldn't bring her with her, as her life was here in the UK. I hope that my reference might help you into learning more about what kid of person Lina is. Thank You Giulia Stones "

Supportive, family oriented, caring, open-minded
"Having worked with Caroline in her previous role, I found her to be of a very supportive and sunny disposition and my three young boys absolutely adored Caroline. Nothing was ever too much trouble for Caroline; she injected so much warmth and assistance into our family environment and was a complete joy to be around. Whether it was helping with the children, being a calming influence, offering a listening ear or just showing a responsible awareness, Caroline always put my mind at ease. Caroline was always very flexible and was excellent with the children, engaging with them all in such a cheerful and creative manner, having three children under 4 at the time was oftentimes hectic and eventful, however, Caroline always took everything in her stride and conducted herself professionally and calmly, peppered with enthusiasm and humour which was exactly what we all needed. I will always be very grateful for Caroline's support and empathy and myself and my three young boys are very lucky to have had her in our lives for a period of three years. I would have no hesitation in recommending Caroline, she would be a complete and wonderful asset to any family. "

We will be using Emma for many years to come. "

He is happy to do whatever is needed to help the family out. Be it take them to violin, help teach them basketball, or emptying the dishwasher. I would recommend Paul to anyone looking for a kind, trustworthy and super fun nanny! "

Capable, calm and very kind!
"Bobby supported our family for nearly two years in an afternoon nanny role. Our boys were 9 and 11 at the time and attending two different schools. She collected our youngest from school and coordinated after school activities, afternoon snacks, homework and evening activities including meals and any washing for them. She also assisted the older one with his school needs too. Bobby remains a very close friend with our family some three years on and has looked after our boys in the evenings or on weekends and during school holidays. When the youngest went to secondary school too we no longer needed her afternoon assistance. Bobby was however quickly snapped up by another family at the same primary school and her next nanny role was exactly the same. She is very personable, engaging and caring and I never had any concerns at all whilst the boys were in her care nor did my sons friends mothers and fathers either. She is very loyal and confidential with all families she supports. She is committed to her own development and is pursuing Montessori studies whilst working in a Montessori based nursery in the mornings and as a nanny in the afternoons. She is a very capable young woman and I would highly recommend her to any nursery school, family looking for a nanny or babysitting support. She is very mature, diligent and strongly focussed on the care and development of children. Call her - you wont regret it!"

"Bethan has been caring for our children for 4 years. The children always look forward to seeing her because she is the type of babysitter who is down on the ground playing and pretending and making up games and seems to have as much fun as the kids. Bethan is incredibly responsible who keeps her commitments and keeps the kids safety in mind at all times. Bethan never lets anything ruffle her, she's always calm, and seems to know what to do. We now live in Switzerland but fly Bethan over to us when we need her and it's always a treat to have her visit. I do not hesitate to recommend her, and if you are lucky enough to have her you will quickly realize that you have a gem! "

"It is with great pleasure that I recommend Tremaine as a babysitter. She watched my 4-year-old daughter three times a week last year and it was a joy to have her. Tremaine is cheerful and was ready to engage our daughter with creative art, dramatic play and other enriching activities. She is intelligent, kind and a great listener. My daughter made lots of progress in English thanks to her and other moms from school were quite impressed and always gave me good feedbacks whenever they saw Tremaine. Our daughter loved her and liked spending time with her. Also, Tremaine always followed our directions with regards to bathtime, diner time etc... She is very punctual and reliable and any family that hires her has very fortunate children indeed. "
