I contacted Emma in desperation with 4 month old twins who wouldn't nap and woke up up to 10 times a night. She came for 3 days and at the end of that they were napping brilliantly in their cots and one was sleeping through the night (the other was unwell but was only waking for calpol!). She made such a difference and we haven't looked back. All the time she was lovely with the babies - they adored her and were very happy in her company - and I enjoyed her company too. If you are thinking about hiring a maternity nurse you couldn't do better - I wish I'd had her when the babies were born!
Emma is working for us at the moment looking after our twins who are 3.5 and our 18 month old toddler. She is a fantastic nanny, and the only reason she is leaving us is because we are moving - otherwise we would have tried to keep her until the kids left home! I feel like she has become part of our family and the kids adore her.
She is kind and gentle, but sets boundaries and sticks to them. She has a lot of childcare experience and it shows in how she manages to ensure their behaviour is good with positive cues and reinforcement. She thinks of fun things to do with the kids and is happy to take them to all sorts of activities. She is great at doing arts and crafts, baking, puzzles....and she is an amazing cook! She is also very tidy and organised.
Emma is extremely reliable and always punctual. She has also been very flexible with unexpected delays and problems.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Emma - she is ta perfect nanny!
Emma came back to work with us for a year when we came back from overseas. She was just as perfect as before, and we have loved having her back in our lives. She is completely reliable, responsible and mature, and the children adore her. She's a great cook and keeps the house tidy and clean, and although some excellent craft projects are undertaken she always makes sure that every trace of it is tidied up afterwards.
