5 stars

Pamela is wonderful with our children (we have three, 5,8 & 14).
She has a great rapport with them, they have an enormous amount of respect for her and she acheives the perfect balance between warmth and authority. Pamela bakes, cooks and does arty stuff with the children and miraculously can get them to eat all sorts of veg and wholesome food that I cannot get them to even look at! She is extraordinary!
