Hannah looked after our children for over two years (from when they were 1 and 4 until they were 3 and 6). We soon realised we'd struck gold. She is so kind and caring, so tuned-in to kids and so conscientious. She did fantastic activities with the kids and coped amazingly well with whatever was thrown at her. She is a thoroughly nice person and a lovely presence.
Hannah looked after my 2 kids as part of a nanny share from September 2016 to February 2017. She is very reliable, punctual and conscientious. She was flexible and thoughtful, and managed to make a very tricky job seem manageable. We had to leave the share as our needs changed, (we offered her increased hours but she was loyal to her other commitments!) I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Hannah to others and wish her luck. Try not to work too hard!

Thank you Rebecca, you were brilliant to work for and I wish you luck with the new nanny. We will have to arrange some playdates for the girls :)
Hannah took care of our baby son (aged 7 months) for about 2 months (four hours a day for three days each week). She played with him, took care of his needs, took him out on walks: to playgroups, to the museum, to the park, etc.
Our son loved being with her. We found her reliable, punctual, and trustworthy and she never gave us any cause to worry. She was also willing to help out with chores around the house and kitchen when we needed her to. At the end of each session, she would write a note informing us of how everything went on during the day, what and how much our son ate, details of nappy changes, activities, and so on.
In summary, Hannah was great and we highly recommend her!

Thanks very much for the review. I hope I see you all again at some point soon, would be lovely to see how much Ashy has grown in this time :)
We have been lucky to have Hannah as nanny for our two Children, even if it was short notice appointment, for two months. She was picking them from school and they had creative happy time home , waiting us to be back from our jobs.Every day she used to study with my 6 year old boy and had a day theme for creations and games. Both our Children enjoyed the time they spent with her!!!
