Lovely lady, my little one felt at ease with her from the offset and seemed to really enjoy her company. Provided with short notice and even ran over slightly and she was very understanding. 100% would recommend.

I have had Jeanette to sit for my children on several occasions.
They love it when she comes over and actually look forward to me going out so they get to have her come and sit for them - they say she is great fun!

I like having Jeanette sit for my kids as I have 100% peace of mind when she is looking after them. She has a lot of experience of looking after children of all ages and taught preschool children for over 10 years as well as having 4 children of her own. I can go out knowing someone who is great with kids and could cope in the awful event of an emergency is taking care of them.

She is always reliable, on time, friendly and flexible. I trust her totally with my little ones and it is always a pleasure to see her. A really lovely lady.
