Debbie has been looking after our 2 children (aged 4 and 2 years) for nearly a year now and we feel so lucky to have her.
Debbie is kind, caring and thoughtful. She is calm and patient despite some of the trying behaviour our 4 year old troubles us with. Our children always have fun with Debbie and there is never a dull moment. She does all sorts of activities at home including various games, craft, baking, writing, colouring and outdoor play. She manages to make learning fun and has an amazing ability to engage both children in educational activities. Debbie is full of energy, she regularly takes the children out to soft plays, playgroups, parks, gardens, nature centres or farms.
Debbie always ensures that our children eat a varied, balanced diet and cooks them nutritious meals which they seem to enjoy (more than our cooking!).
Our house is always clean and tidy after Debbie has been here and she even manages to find the time to do the washing and change bed sheets.
Debbie is reliable, punctual and has been flexible when we have needed her to be. We feel that she is totally committed and goes above and beyond to make our lives that bit easier. Overall she is an amazing nanny and a lovely person, and we would highly recommend her.
Debbie has been doing drop off for my eldest son (5) at school then looking after my youngest son (4) in the mornings before he goes to pre-school in the afternoon. She is brilliant, my boys are full of energy and can be a challenge - but she is fantastic at keeping them entertained and well behaved. She always takes the youngest to playgroups and to do various activities in the mornings, gets him to eat healthy food, and most importantly makes him feel special and loved. She does baking and drawing and crafts with them, and the boys often have something to bring home with them. It is obvious that Debbie loves children and has a natural affinity with them. I have no hesitation in recommending her as a nanny.
Debbie has been looking after my 2 children (1 and 5) for a little over a year now. She's an experienced child carer who is brilliant at talking to kids so they understand. I don't know how she does it, but she manages to play with both kids at once even if they're both doing different things. At the end of the day the kids are calm and peaceful. Debbie is quick to notice new things the kids do, whether they are unwell, what they are interested in. She keeps on top of school letters, dates, uniform and so on. Debbie is patient and kind, plays with the kids and is always thinking of new craft and cooking activities (including making cakes for when I get home from work!). She takes the kids to playgroup, the park, the nature centre etc. Debbie keeps the house clean and tidy and manages to find time to run small errands as needed. Debbie is amazingly reliable, punctual and committed. Most importantly she cares about the children and they are happy with her.
Debbie's been working part time for us for almost a year and we couldn't be happier with her. Most importantly, my two boys (2yr and 9months) adore her and my 2yo is always asking when Debbie will come! She's caring but firm, sticks carefully to our usual routine as well as fitting in lots of fun activities (often bringing new craft equipment/ games with her), and trips out (e.g., the library, soft play, parks). Debbie clearly loves working with children- she never runs out of energy or ideas, and it’s lovely to see my boys so calm and happy at the end of the day.
