Here are some of the latest references we have received from parents about carers on Findababysitter.com
"Geraldine has cared for my children (ages 7 and 9) several times. She is very responsive, arrives on time, and enjoys talking and playing with my kids. She often handled bedtime and had no trouble helping my kids wind down and get to sleep at the appropriate time. Most importantly, my kids were always happy to see her."

"I met Jola through local playgroups in Tooting and became friends so she has now also been to my house on several occasions. She is lovely and takes good care of her own little boy, who as she says is also very gentle. She is sweet with my kids too and I would be very comfortable leaving them with her if we needed someone to look after them. I hope this site helps link her up with some lovely families to get her back into childcare work."

Reliable, imaginative, fun!
"Rachel worked with us as live-in nanny/carer during the summer of 2012. She came into a home with two young children with additional needs and a very poorly Mum, and quickly picked up the routines of the home and children, allowing Dad to return to work. She worked alongside nurses to care for Mum, managed the day-to-day running of the home, chased after our lively toddler and helped our seven-year-old son to have a fun summer in difficult circumstances. Rachel can plan suitable, fun activities for children, and adapt quickly to changing circumstances. She is trustworthy and reliable."

Reliable Caring Outgoing
"Latoya worked for me over the summer holidays last year and still helps out when myself and the husband need a break. I can be overbearing and welcomed her ability to keep comms open with my kids when I had to work overtime. She is very reliable I highly recommend her. "

Reliable enthusiastic caring
"Our kids love Rachel! We have used her as a babysitter and school holiday nanny over the past 5 years. My kids aged 10, 7 and 4 are always asking when they are going to get to see her again. She is reliable, flexible and very patient with my 3 high energy boys. I would highly recommend her. "
From Jenny to Rachel , 15 January 2017
Kind, caring, patient and LOVES kids!
"We've used Rachel to babysit for our four children for 2 years now. She's lovely, personable and completely trustworthy. She has a positive attitude and our children adore her!"
From Cait to Rachel , 14 January 2017
Versatile and patient and very affectionate.
"Rubid has been taking care of our two small boys on average a few days a week since our youngest was 7 months old. They are now 2.5 and 1 and both adore her! Typically in a day Rubid will play with them in fun focused activities, sing songs and read books to them (which they enjoy). Looking after two so young can be very difficult especially as they both still have specific needs, but she handles them brilliantly. We have a routine which she follows to the letter, and she prepares meals and snacks throughout the day (from breakfast through to dinner), and always following our instructions. Sometimes she will also make suggestions for meals and we welcome that (as do the boys!) She is fluent in Spanish so we have asked her to begin teaching our eldest some Spanish and he now counts to 10 and can name a few objects in both languages! Our boys are always very relaxed by the end of a stimulating and fun day with her, Rubid will help with bath times too and is flexible to stay later when we need an extra hand. She is a great help to have around (even cleans the living room and kitchen area for us!) and is always extremely reliable and is always on time. She is a great nanny and (as a mother herself) comes with many years of experience. Highly recommend her services, if we could offer her more hours a week we would!"
From Dev to RUBID , 08 January 2017
"I cannot possibly express what an absolute delight it was to have Nadine as not only a nanny, but a part of our family. My children adored this wonderful young lady, and we have remained close friends. She is mature, warm, very compassionate and patient. Myself and my husband work away frequently, so a large majority of the time Nadine was in sole charge with a lot of responsibility, for my 3 children. This included my newborn baby, a toddler and a young child. No easy task - but she coped perfectly, and we had never seen the children so content and happy! I would highly recommend Nadine to anyone looking for childcare. "
From Wendy to Nadine , 06 January 2017
Outstanding and reliable
"Our little boy has SEN and can be a handful, we was really worried about getting a nanny for him as he does not take to new people well. When we joined this site will emailed a few nannies we had three but all quit within the week due to our boys demands. We was worried and concerned because we both work. We emailed Sarah gave her a small interview and her first impressions where fantastic, she came all prepared showed us activities and all her certificates. We agreed on a two week trial, at first our boy refused to go near sarah, but she put all the hard work , even when he was very challenging and would not use his words, sarah would still not give up. Not only has Thomas development come on leaps and bounds I have never seen him open up and trust someone the way he has with sarah. He does not shy away anymore he runs to the door and cant wait to see what new activity she has in store today. I want to thank Sarah for all her hard work and Thomas will never forget everything you have done for him and the family. I will be contacting you soon for babysitting. I recommend sarah to anybody with children. A+ Nanny"

Enthusiastic, Loving, Happy
"Sherayne has been babysitting my 5 year old son and 7 year old daughter for over a year now. We are very impressed with her and how she keeps the children attentive for long periods of time. She is very reliable and allways try to accommodate for us even if we call her last minute. Very happy. Big thumbs up. "
From Sarah to Sherayne , 24 December 2016
Smart, Fun, Responsible
"Sherayne is a smart young lady who has a lot of experience babysitting the children in our neighborhood. Not only does she keep the children engaged, she has tutored many and built a long-standing relationship with the parents including myself. I have great confidence in Sherayne's ability to babysit and her reliability as it is amazing."
From Cher to Sherayne , 24 December 2016
"Unfortunately, on the day of the agreed interview day - only when I messaged her to confirm - Lea did tell me that she was not coming."
From Saba to Lea , 19 December 2016
Positive Trustworthy Multi-skilled
"We considered Noemi to be part of our family rather than just a babysitter. It is rare to find an individual with such integrity, humility and warmth. Noemi always went above and beyond on a consistent basis with genuine care for us and our child. She was able to coach and tutor seamlessly alongside her regular duties. If my wife had not returned to full time motherhood, Noemi would still be an integral part of our household. I would have no hesitation in recommending Noemi to any parent who wants the best care for their child/children. "
From M to Noemi , 14 December 2016
competent, experienced and responsible.
" To whom it may concern: I am writing this referece to recommend Marcia as I believe that she is competent and experienced enough to fit in any child care capacity and she is also certified in First AID. She worked at my home on casual hours for the past 2 years since I arrive in Exeter. Marcia took care of my 3 children, boys aged 12 and 2 and a girl aged 8 during my absence. Her roles have included delivering and collecting the children from school, competently prepared formulas, made nutritious meals, and took them on outings and social gatherings. She is exceptionally good at occupying the children and takes the initiative to prepare new activities for them. My youngest son always has incredible fun with her. Also her ironing is second to none! Anytime I am in need of a childcare provider, I think of her. I have had the highest confidence in her trustworthiness, judgement and maturity, and always felt relaxed after leaving my kids in her supervision. Please feel free to contact me if you need any further information. "
From Galina to Marcia , 13 December 2016
Willing, enthusiastic, reliable
"I knew Anuska Lago Rey many years ago, during the 1990s, when she stayed with me as an au pair in London, helping to look after my two boys, aged approximately 4 and 9 at the time. As I recall, she was with us for approximately six months. Ana was always an extremely willing, lively and pleasant person to be around. I cannot ever recall her doing less than she was required to do – quite the opposite in fact. Nothing was too much trouble and she performed all her duties willingly and promptly. She was excellent with the boys, took the initiative on both play and school-related activities and engaged very well with them, whilst also maintaining firm control. She was extremely tidy and good at helping around the house. I would be happy to recommend Anuska as a nanny."
From Jenny to Ana , 11 December 2016
Reliable honest trustworthy
"Ana is so great with children-she looked after my 3 children for 2 years! Helpfulalways seeing when something needed to be done, clean, tidy, respectful of other people and their wishes and my children adored her! 109% recommend her!"
From Clare to Ana , 10 December 2016
best nanny ever
"I work nights and my husband travels for business. We hire Jo to care for our two special needs children for seven overnights at a time. Jo is by far the absolute best nanny we have ever had. She always arrives promptly and always shows up with a new project or game for the children to work on while. When I arrive home in the morning, my children are fed and beautifully dressed, ready for school. They love Jo and miss her when she is gone. We are lucky to have found her, and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a nanny."
From Tracy to Jo , 10 December 2016
Joyful, responsible, confident
"This is my personal recommendation for Csilla Jager who worked as an Au Pair for my family over one scholar year (9 months). There is no better way to describe her than being indispensible and I am very sad to see her leave us. Csilla has been nothing less than our family member during last year. She possess a good attitude and calm nature. She looked after my son and became his best friend, Curro enjoyed a lot the time with Csilla as well as he learned English. Csilla used to play with curro, teach him English and help him with his homework, she was very good helping music and arts. Moreover Csilla was an excellent cooker and a genius making crafts that was an asset. Csilla will be an absolute asset to whichever family that she works for and I recommend her fully. "
From Marina to Csilla , 05 December 2016
very hard working
"Kindly permit me to recommend Damilola to you for the post of babysitter. Damilola was my babysitter for months before she stopped working for my family because she wants to prepare for her A/Level examination in which she did very well and this will show the kind of person who she is. Myself and my family were devastated when she wants to stop working for us but there is little we can do because this has to do with her future and for the betterment of her life. She has First Aid Certificate. Damilola do follow instructions into detail. If you employed Damilola you won't have any regret whatsoever.Regards Williams Ogunleye "
