"Charlotte has looked after our three children aged 0-12 several times. She always turns up happy and ready to play, create and care for. Nothing is too much trouble and we love that she uses her initiative with activities and we always come home to lovely stories from the children of what a great time they've had. Everyone needs a Charlotte! "

Reliable, fun, hard working
"I have been privileged enough to have used Fi for childcare for the past year, since my son started school. She is a loving and hard working nanny, and is like a member of the family to my son, Seb. Fi has a good understanding of the needs and abilities of children, and is warm, nuturing and responsive. Anytime I have been late off work, Fi has been understanding and has tucked Seb into bed, and has done it with enthusiasm. She goes above and beyond what most people would expect of a nanny, and is more a part of the family. Fi is a gifted nanny and person. She is loving, kind, warm and energetic. She connects with children in a very special way, and is fun, yet children respect and listen to her. As a single mum, I couldn't have wished for a better role model for my son than Fi, and I'm very sad that she won't be looking after him anymore. Every 'Fi' day, Seb goes running to her and is so happy to be left with her, and doesn't want her to leave at the end of the day, which speaks more than words can write. I wish Fi the very best in her next role. Any employer would be lucky to have her. "

Fi is a caring and responsible professional nanny who is passionate about childcare.
"Fi has been the nanny for my two children (now aged 3 years old and 5 years old) for nearly three years now. Fi lived with us for two and a half years as our live-in nanny and she now rents a flat with another lovely local nanny, and so lives out as our nanny. I am going onto maternity leave this summer and so it is with great sadness that come the September school term we will longer need Fi as our nanny. My two children absolutely adore Fi and have a lovely bond with her. I highly recommend Fi as a professional nanny for children. Fi is a very caring and kind individual who has a real passion for childcare. She is responsible and she acts calmly when the children are unwell or have an accident. She carries out the following responsibilities - • Promotes good behaviours by using the positive reinforcement method. • Maintains a safe and child-friendly environment with engaging activities and continuous access to the outdoors. • Sparks creativity and imagination by helping the children discover new things each day. • Schedules and attends doctor, dentist, hospital and school appointments. • Cooks healthy meals for the children and encourage them to try news foods. • Organises and runs play dates for the children every week, often hosting up to six children to help them both build friendships and social relationships. • Carries out homework duties with the now five year old - hand writing, reading, phonics and maths. • Supports the now three year old on his hand writing, phonics and numbers work. • Takes the children swimming and helps to progress their water skills. • Carries out domestic duties for the children including doing their washing and ironing, preparing packed lunches and getting their school and nursery bags packed. • Ensures the spaces that the children use in the house are all kept clean and tidy. • Gives us (as parents) any feedback about the children, their behaviour and activities.

Professional, calm, confident and happy!
"We first had the pleasure of finding Jess in Brooklyn, NY. From the moment I met her I knew I could trust her with my 2 year old daughter Karis. Her professionalism was obvious right from the beginning when she suggested a catch up prior to the first babysitting appointment to discuss Karis's likes/dislikes, do's/dont's and anything else relevant such as food allergies. Nothing is too hard or challenging for Jess. Her calm and confident demeanour is instantly reassuring. Jess will happily take Karis to the park for as long as she is happy to play and always finds fun indoor activities to play on rainy days. On one occasion we were in Times Square for lunch prior to seeing a show. We realised we wouldn't be able to get back in time to drop Karis off to Jess, so Jess came all the way to Times Square to pick Karis up and took her back home safely on the subway to Brooklyn - just AMAZING! We always come home to a happy little girl and a tidy house. Karis always cries when it is time to say goodbye. Whilst living in New York I once witnessed her in the neighbourhood successfully herding a group of four primary school aged boys with bags of shopping that the family had entrusted her to do. To say that Jess was in control of the situation is an understatement. I was in complete awe! When she moved to London we were constantly disappointed by the replacements so we just followed her! There is nothing more reassuring then moving to a new country and instantly having help at hand. We were so happy to be reunited with Jess and she has fast become a member of our little family here. Since then we have had a son and Jess has shown that she is completely capable of caring for a young infant (4 months old at the time). I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Jess and would be more than happy to be contacted by any potential family looking for more information."

"We loved having Georgia as a babysitter and our children still talk about her! She's very friendly and professional and knows what she's doing - a natural with children. We completely trusted her and felt very comfortable knowing we were leaving our children in very capable hands. She was eager to please and very willing to be flexible with our hectic lifestyle so we couldn't have asked for more. "
From Charlotte to Georgia , 25 May 2017
Kind, caring and professional
"Georgia helped us out with our two young boys on weekends and some evenings during the week and we found her very caring and kind and willing to go above and beyond for us. She's very confident and happy to accommodate needs that may change as she is very easy going. She prepared meals for the boys as well as normal babysitting duties of preparing for bed etc and she was happy to help out around the house with washing and cleaning if needed. Highly recommend as she's a lovely, warm and friendly girl who we miss (we moved away)."

"Sihan has worked with my son for so many years and we know her for almost 5 years. She has excellent child minding and child care skills. I would definitely recommend her. My kid doesn't need help anymore as he is grown now, so this is the reason we don't need her help now. Best regards Zac "

"Otilia looked after my two girls, then aged 3 and 6 for 3 years and practically became a member of our family. The children loved her, especially the youngest who built a very close bond with her. Otilia was always very respectful of our privacy, yet was available to give me advice when I requested it. The only reason why we had to let her go was because of us relocating. We hope she will soon find another family that will appreciate her as much as we do. "

Passionate, caring, reliable
"Anita worked at my home in this role for 1 month during last summer, in this period I had the satisfaction of seeing her dedication, care and professional approach to the job. I am confident that she is competent and experienced enough to fit in any child care capacity, as all our expectations were exceeded from day 1. She took care of my 4 years old nephew who has speech and language impairment and during this time I learnt of her passion and drive to help kids with disabilities since she was young, which led her to get a degree in ‘Special Needs and Disability Studies’ back in her country. She was very flexible and happy to work around our schedule, which was very appreciated! I can only wish her the best of luck in her future endeavours, we will definitely be in touch with her for future job opportunities. "

Lovely, Charming and Kind
" It is with great pleasure that I recommend Tosin as a babysitter. Tosin watched my now 5 year old daughter once every week for 3 years and it was a joy to have her. Tosin always came to our home on time, cheerful and ready to engage my daughter with enriching activities. She is intelligent, kind and a great listener. My daughter loves Tosin and looks forward to spending time with her. That said, she always followed our directions in regard to my daughter (bedtimes, food, etc.) and she respects her as an authority figure. We still engage her services about two evenings per month. She is very great with kids and my daughter simply adores her. She is very calm and patient with. She handles my daughter with great care and I'm always at peace when she watches her. Besides a natural affinity toward child care, Tosin has previously worked as a Kumon Teaching assistant. By hiring Tosin, you can be assured that you won't get a young person who lounges around watching TV while your kids fend for themselves. Tosin is fun,caring and a great person. Any family that hires her will be glad they did."
