Our family recently moved to the UK with 3 1/2 month-old twins. It was an overwhelming and stressful time made manageable by our lovely nanny, Katy! After speaking to several people, we chose Katy based on her professionalism, attention to detail, and experience. From the first day, she was unflappable. Dealing with twins is not easy and Katy handled the challenge beautifully. She was punctual, clean, and always pleasant. She worked with the twins, encouraging tummy time, reading to them, and making sure they got outside every day on walks through the village. She was knowledgable about the area and recommended parks, play groups, and activities. Both my son and daughter would light up when she came in the room. And when they got cranky, Katy remained calm and in control. Katy's experience was invaluable and she was able to provide insight about teething and developmental milestones that we, as new parents, lacked. When we had scheduling emergencies or needed to shift dates and times, Katy was flexible and extremely adaptable. I cannot recommend her enough! We moved from the area but would hire Katy again in a heartbeat. Trustworthy, warm, and very capable!
Katy started working for us in January 2015 and has been a valued member of our household for (18) months. At the time of starting, our daughter was 1 years old and our son was 3 years old.
Katy looked after both children, taking our son to and from Pre-School twice a week and ensuring our daughter was lovingly entertained throughout. She has actively sought out local groups and has proactively setup playdates with my children’s friends and family. Both my children have formed strong, loving bonds with her. Katy is calm and even-keeled even when confronted with the particularly challenging behaviour my son can exhibit at times. Her attitude to disciple and her engaging nature has endeared both of my children to her.
Overall, she has been a conscientious, calm and upbeat presence in our home.
Katy’s stable presence has allowed my husband and I to focus on our work, especially as she has been available to flex her days and/or hours according to our changing schedules.
Once again, I highly recommend Katy for a nanny position. In case of any queries regarding her qualifications and abilities, please feel free to contact me on my phone number or email address
Katy has been with us for the past year and in that time I have found her to be extremely helpful, always happy to muck in whatever the task.
She is kind and considerate and provides a stimulating and caring environment for my 3 and 9 year old girls.
She is with us full time from 7.30 – 6.30 and is always punctual. The girls adore her and she is very good at getting down to their level and playing, nurturing and learning with them whilst still letting them know who is in charge.
Unfortunately we have moved locations due to my husband’s work and therefore have not been able to continue her employment. We would love to have her coming with us!
I employed Katy for 2½ years as a sole charge nanny for my 2 children. She started when my daughter was just 9months old and took on the additional role of caring for my son from birth in December 2008.
Choosing childcare was extremely difficult and like any parents we wanted someone competent that we could trust fully and feel confortable leaving our child with. Katy proved to be the perfect choice. She has a great personality for the job, being well mannered with good common sense and morals but also fun loving, imaginative and encouraging to the children. She is very knowledgeable about all aspects of childcare across all age groups so not only was she able to provide an excellent standard of care but she could also put forward ideas and advice whenever I had any problems or questions as a new mum.
As the children grew and our needs changed, Katy was more than willing to adapt and take on new responsibilities. She helped with sleep routines, prepares meals, educational games, took them on outings, pre-school, often helped with cleaning/laundry and in general provided a varied, safe and stimulating environment for the children. She worked well to instruction and communicated with me on a daily basis. Her timekeeping was excellent and she was reliable even at short notice when needed.
Most importantly Katy has been like on of the family – my children love her and were excited to see her every morning so I was able to work full-time without worrying. Sadly our situation changed and we moved away from the area but we still keep in touch to this day and I am more than happy to recommend Katy to any parents.
Katy worked with us for about 3 years. She became an integral part of our family and worked wonders with our children. She is very personable and will love and care for your children as I they were her own. Katy managed to make even the most mundane of tasks fun for the children to do, including tidying up! We miss her very much and wish we were in a position to have her back. Any family is lucky to have her join their unit.
I am more than happy to offer references if anyone should need them.
