Debbie has been looking after my little one (started at 5 months) for two days a week during my phased return to work. She has been absolutely wonderful. Very careful and caring, patient and calm. Always punctual and extremely reliable. She has remarkable energy and skill with a small baby. I cannot recommend her enough.

I have a daughter with special needs who has been out of education up until very recently. I employed Debbie for approximately two months prior to the summer holidays in 2021 to enable me to secure employment before my daughter re-engaged with education this autumn. Debbie was amazing. She was sensitive toward my daughter who has become increasingly reclusive due to her anxiety associated with her autism. She made pancakes for my daughter for breakfast and even treated her to McDonalds on their last day together. Debbie was extremely helpful around the home including washing and ironing and she even mowed the lawn. It was a pleasure to come home. Debbie was really like our very own Mary Poppins!

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.
