Giovanna is a gem! She's been looking after our 2 younger kids (3 yo and 10 month old) since January, and we couldn't be happier.
The kids enjoy plenty of play time, indoor and outdoor, combined with developmental activities. They are happy and relaxed around her and we are very confident leaving the kids with her.
Additional bonus, she makes amazing hand made food!

Giovanna looked after our youngest two children for 6 months.
She is such a loving person! My kids absolutely adored her and still asks for Giovanna.

Our little girl suffers from severe Eczema with an endless list of food allergies. I was so worried about leaving her with someone when I went back to work full time. But there was no need. Giovanna welcomed the kids into her home and she kept them busy all day. Playgroups, libraries, parks. She has two boys same age as my eldest and second so they got on really well and her boys adored my baby girl.

The change I saw in my kids - they grew whilst in Giovanna's care.
It was wonderful to see the change in them and they learnt a couple of Italian words!

Giovanna is reliable, punctual, flexible, loving, caring - you couldn't ask for more to look after your children.

If only our kids went to the same school we would have definitely stayed with Giovanna! it's such a shame. They miss her!
