"One of the family!"
review of Vicky - Babysitter in Preston
One of the family!
Vicky has been nannying for my daughter for just under a year, as well as occasional babysitting. She is truly one of the family and we feel so lucky to have found her.
My daughter absolutely loves her and is so excited when she arrives in the morning. They have built a lovely bond and trusting relationship, which is so nice to see. She is very active which I love - they go out twice a day on adventures and they are always smiling and laughing. Sometimes I wonder who is having more fun - my daughter or Vicky :)...she genuinely enjoys the company of children and watching them develop. I really like the way she treats my daughter, as a friend but with clear behavioural boundaries and my daughter has obviously flourished in her company. Vicky sends photos throughout the day which is really lovely and so nice to receive at work. I have 100% confidence in her and trust that my daughter is safe, happy and having fun when they are together.
My partner and/or I often work at home and she has always been very flexible with this, which has been great as it can't always be easy. She is very respectful and has a clear routine so we all know where we stand. She has really taken an interest in my daughter. For example, she's not the best sleeper and Vicky always tries to support and come up with new ideas. Likewise, she is keen to try new foods out on my daughter, who has been having some dietary issues.
Vicky also babysits for us (and will always try to accomodate us at short notice which is amazing) and everything always goes to plan. She copes fine with bedtime and if my daughter wakes, and the house is always left super clean.
