Sara worked for our family over the Christmas period, the entire family was down with a cold & even though Sara was travelling a considerable distance she was always on time or very early. Sara was totally reliable, very caring and kind and the children quickly adapted to her caring for them. I have a boy 2.5 and girl 1.5, I couldn’t have asked for better care. Sara was very very competent and knowledgable was happy to help with any task. My children are Muslim and Asian and Sara was very respectful of our traditions and faith and worked very well with my mother who also likes to help.
Thank you so much we will definitely call on you again.

Thank you so much I’m sure I will see you all again very soon.

My wife had been unwell over the weekend and, at short notice, Sara came to our home to help with childcare of my 5-month old son as an emergency nanny. She was fantastic, immediately taking over care of my son from my wife and allowing her to rest. She got up to speed with his daily routine (naps, feeds) very quickly. She played with him and engaged him throughout the day and I think my son really enjoyed the time he spent with her.

My wife and I felt very comfortable with Sara in the house. She was professional and punctual, despite having to drive a considerable distance to reach us. She is very experienced and knowledgeable about child care. She did an outstanding job and we would not hesitate to recommend her and book her again.

Thank you for the lovely review it was a pleasure

Sara looked after my 14 month old son for 2 months over the summer. He can be a little shy at times but Sara bonded with him immediately, and he was instantly happy, comfortable and relaxed with her.  She was very attentive with him, and was great at taking him to local activities and play-dates and keeping him occupied. I felt very happy going to work knowing he was going to have a fun day ahead of him and also be in safe hands. She kept him to his schedule very well and even got him to eat a good lunch, which is never easy! She sent me wonderful text messages and photos every day letting him know what they had been up to, which very much put my mind at rest.

I thoroughly recommend Sara and hope to use her again when we are next back in the UK

Thank you so much for your detailed review, I would love to be asked again so hurry back soon .

Sara looked after our 1 year old in a temporary 6 week placement, while I was in the home, and he completely adored her. Sara is extremely professional and made sure our son's days were filled with all sorts of enriching activities. Sara is a fantastic teacher and was constantly finding new ways to convey information to our son. She was always willing to lend a helping hand by helping me with ad hoc chores/projects and staying late even if it meant changing her own plans:) We highly recommend sara and if we needed a full-time nanny, would hire her in a heartbeat!!

Thank you so much for your kind review.

Sara is a fantastic nanny! My daughter took to Sara straight away and they have built an amazing connection with one another. Phoebee felt safe and happy and Sara took amazing care of my child. They had lots of fun with the activities that were undertook. Overnight stays were brilliant too and my daughter was so settled and felt like she was at home. We have stayed in touch since and in the future I will continue to use Sara's services if I need too. She's not just a nanny but an amazing woman who does the best for the children in her care.
