review of Peekay - Nanny in Fareham
What can I say about Penny? She is a fantastic nanny who has been a Godsend to me. Working as a Police officer, Penny has been brilliant at accommodating my awkward and unsociable duties, she is very flexible and has saved me at short notice, staying on well beyond her arranged hours when I was in desperate need of sleep!
Penny has looked after my children, aged 2 and 6 years since the Summer 2014 and she has become a part of the family. She is always cheerful and upbeat, keen to interact with the children and to take on board their needs. They love the fun craft activities she does with them, like making 'mummy hands' at Halloween!
Penny is a naturally very caring person and clearly loves caring for children. She is sensitive to their feelings, which is especially important to me as she has been nannying for me since I split up with my husband and I had to return to work full time. Although she is kind and caring she is also good at maintaining boundaries and discipline, very much adhering to the same ethos that I have.
Penny more often than not stays overnight and has had several broken nights sleep looking after my 2 year old. She is excellent at calming him down and the lack of sleep never interferes with her child caring. She also keeps me updated with any issues that arise and I have every confidence that my children are safe and well looked after, allowing me to concentrate at work. I really don't know where I would have been without Penny and would be gutted if she were poached!!
