gentle, imaginative, responsible
"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! "

playful with kids, calm, punctual, responsible
"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. "

"Ashley came to join our family last July (2016), she is in sole charge of my two boys from 7am to 7pm three days a week. Ash gets them up, drops son number one at the school, cares for son number two throughout the day and then collects eldest, feeds them both and gets them into bed. Everything I would do if I were not at work. Ash is great fun, really committed, deals with the teething, bugs, tantrums in my absence. Ash has NEVER let me down, not once. She is also pretty flexible and tries to accommodate any changes you may need to make. You can tell that she loves children, which is why I employed in the first instance. My boys love her and they have a great bond. She is great at organising activities and has Harry, her secret weapon, to get things going in the first instance (he's a tortoise). She is hugely knowledgeable about EY learning and no doubt can add value here. Due to a massive change of plans we are relocating down south, if she were single I would be taking her with me. I would not hesitate to recommend this very special lady. I am very very sad to be saying goodbye, as will be my boys. "

Committed Enthusiastic Friendly
"Magali has been a truly committed babysitter for our two kids ( nine and twelve) , she took great care of them and she helped our eldest with his homework in a very dedicated way. She did a lovely job and she do care for your kids. She was not just the babysitter for the month she worked here, she was Magali, a truly reliable and genuinely nice person.The kids warmed easily to her, she was friendly yet firm. Come back soon ... we miss you Magali! "

disappointed by last minute cancellation
"I was really looking forward to meeting Naomi, her personal statement on her CV felt like a breath of fresh air and married perfectly with my approach to childcare. Unfortunately, after some back and forth, Naomi suggested a meeting time but cancelled at the last minute, so I was left waiting to meet her and lost precious hours of my morning. Naomi explained that her circumstances have changed, which is fine and happens but I would have liked a little more notice or a phone call at the least. If Naomi's approach to childcare is true to her personal statement I feel she would make a fantastic nanny and if circumstances allow her to pursue this line of work I expect she is worth interviewing, I only feel a little disappointed by the last minute notice."
From Sarah to naomi , 09 February 2017
unreliable or perhaps a mistake
"Unfortunately I made an appointment to meet Elektra and after waiting 20mins I called her to discover that she had forgotten about the appointment, was working and no longer interested. It has certainly been a waste of my time, I would have appreciated her letting me know. Aside from that she seemed nice enough."
From Sarah to ela , 09 February 2017
"Sara has babysit-ted for me on one occasion. She was booked on the day and met my 5 month old baby for the first time. My daughter immediately took to her and was smiling from the beginning. She had her giggling and laughing and smiling and I was happy with the care and would book her again."

Energetic and reliable
"Chloe commenced working for us in June 2014. She was employed to pick our daughter Grace (8 years old) up from school, take her home and cook her dinner. Chloe and Grace developed a great bond really quickly. One of the strongest attributes of Chloe is her ability to play with children. She became like a big sister to Grace, which was lovely as she was an only child. Chloe was extremely responsible and could always be counted on to turn up to school on time and was also flexible in case we required changes to the schedule. I have no hesitation in recommending Chloe for any childcare role, especially with younger children where an element of play is required"

loyal, loving, caring
"I am writing this letter to recommend Diane Marie as a Babysitter. She worked at my home as a babysitter for 1 year. During this duration, we have been more than satisfied with her work. I know that she is competent and experienced enough to fit in any child care capacity. Diane took care of our four kids ages 3, 9, 12 and 14 during my absence. She competently prepared meals, and took them on outings and social gatherings. I have had the highest confidence in her trustworthiness, judgement and maturity, and always felt relaxed after leaving my kids in her supervision. In fact, she was more than a babysitter as she proved herself a member of our family. We have had a lot of different babysitters during the last 14 years so we have a lot to compare with and Diane is our best babysitter ever. My children are upset due to her absence and we miss her everyday but we know that she will always be welcome back if she comes to Stockholm again. I wish her best of luck in her future endeavours. In case you have any questions regarding her work, please feel free to contact me. Sincerely, Moa Alfven"

She was indispensable to our busy family life and gave my husband and I the opportunity to undertake social events and spend valuable time together.

Beth babysat for us overnight on a regular basis and was always able to help the children with their homework, music practice etc. she always managed to get them into bed on time and settled very quickly. the children felt safe and secure in her care. We miss her terribly and would not hesitate to recommend her services. Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can be of any further assistance."

Warm, Kind, Professional

Professional, Caring and always on tim, providing the best care possible to my kids
"Definitely hiring someone who has been a mother and has seen to the growth and education of her son for some 20+ years has its benefits over younger babysitters. Mariagrazia was able to not only solve problems but also foresee them and make sure that my kids were always safe. I also got Italian lessons for my kids, as Mariagrazia has a wealth of experience in working in Italian and teaching. I highly recommend her as a babysitter or nanny"
