Christie looked after my son, two days a week for a year, from when he was 7 months old when I returned to work. She has a lovely, warm and friendly character, is extremely capable and has extensive experience as a nanny. Looking after my son, she was always flexible and followed my instructions as requested.I never had any hesitation leaving my son in her care.

My son had a great time with Christie, she made sure he had a varied programme each day. They visited the Tall Ship and Transport Museum, still a favourite with my son, the Science Centre, Play Gym at Palace of Art and Kelvin Hall and a variety of local toddler groups. He also had lots of trips to the park, feeding the ducks, running around in the leaves and playing on the swings. It's a real bonus that Christie has her own car.

She was happy to baby-sit in the evenings, often at fairly short notice, and was flexible when I had to work late. I would not hesitate to recommend Christie as a nanny and would employ her again.

Asking Christy to be our nanny over 2 years ago was one of the best decisions we ever made. She has now become part of the family! I wanted a nanny who I could trust to nuture and guide our 1 year old daughter. Christy exceeded our expectations. She listened carefully to what was important to us as a family and has always put that first. Luckily we were on the same page about most things but she was always careful to listen to us and our daughter and we have had a very honest and comfortable relationship where we could discuss things as they came up.

She has always provided our daughter with stimulating, age-appropriate activities, been flexible and allowed us to share with other families creating a great social-circle for our wee one. She upholds healthy eating, good manners and clear boundaries, which she gently enforces. She has also successfully navigated us through multiple early hurdles including potty training!

She has always been incrediably reliable and has allowed us flexibility and patience with the challenge of coordinating 2 NHS doctors rotas. With maternity leave coming up and our professional arrangement changing, I am sure and hope we will continue to see Christy as we just really enjoy having her around!

Christy babysat for my two kids now aged 12 & 11 for many years. She's a great babysitter, always early, gets on well with the kids but also able to get them to brush their teeth and get to bed on time.
Many of my friends have also had her to babysit or be their nanny and all have got nothing but praise for her :-)
A really lovely person, I'd be happy to recommend her to you.

Christy has been nanny for my 5 and 7 year old girls for over a year now. The girls love being with her as she is always fun and does stuff like visits to parks/museums, baking and crafts. From a parents perspective she is very reliable and flexible (and has been invaluable recently due to a new job and demanding hours!). She is always accommodating as possible when need to change days and arrange last minute childcare. Very mature for her age and able to deal with tantrums etc no problem. We will miss Christy a great deal as my younger daughter is now starting school. I would have no hesitation in recommending Christy to any family.

We have used Christy for babysitting on several occasions and would recommend her to any family.

From our persoective she is prompt, professional and very reliable. Our 3 children aged 11, 8 and 6 love having her around as she is fun and makes them feel secure.

Christy looked after my daughter one afternoon a week for 18 months and was consistently reliable, punctual and very sensitive to my daughter's personality. She did a great job of entertaining her, either through play or outings and I always felt confident that she was being very well looked after. My daughter broke her leg in the summer and had to spend a week in Yorkhill hospital and
Christy came to visit her which was very kind of her. Overall it was an absolute pleasure to have her working for us.

Christy is caring, reliable and felt like a member of the family. My boys (4 and 2years old) are going to miss her terribly now they are both at nursery. Christy is completely trustworthy and responsible and I would have no hesitation to recommend her. She has been very flexible in arrangements and works very hard. She has fun with the boys but at the same time doesn't let them misbehave. Thanks Christy x

Christy has been looking after our children part time for 18 months. Our 2 girls 4/5yrs adore her. She is flexible and reliable and has a real affinity for children and is very resourceful keeping them constructively entertained - Our children always miss her when she is not looking after them. She has a car and will bend over backwards to accommodate our needs. Highly recommended.

Christy, has assisted me for over 10 months now, and has been a great support too both myself and my son.

She is always on time and is flexible as my works can change at the last minute.

She is professional, polite and alway lets me know how my son has been in my absence.

She has developed a good relationship with my son.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Christy to other parents.
