Below are the latest reviews for ALEV. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk.

We consider ourselves very lucky to know Alev and absolutely adore her. She has looked after our now 19 month daughter as part of a nanny share with another family who have a lovely little boy of the same age. We are relocating internationally next month and are very sad to be parting ways. Alev has such a kind, nurturing and warm manner with the children and invests a lot of time and energy in creating and organising fun activities for them. She is very thoughtful and sensitive to their needs, and our daughter loves her and looks forward to seeing her. I had complete peace of mind returning to work knowing she was so well cared for, particularly as Alev is great at keeping both Mum's updated during the day. We have loved our nanny share arrangement and Alev's professionalism and lovely nature have helped to make it such a great experience. Alev is a very experienced nanny and we cannot recommend her highly enough. We will miss her terribly when we move.
I have asked Alev to help with my 10 year old daughter twice on short notice and she has been fantastic, I agree with everything the other reviews have said. She is a warm and kind person and completely reliable, I am very grateful for her help.
Alev has worked for my family for nearly 19 months and during that time has come to be an absolutely essential part of my family. She has sole charge 3 x days per week of my 3 year old son and he absolutely adores her. She is very energetic and proactive and takes him out to lots of local playgroups, swimming and arts and crafts lessons and she also is proactive about meeting other families in local groups and organising playdates with others. I trust her implicitly and she is also very helpful around the house and with any small jobs to make my life easier as a working mum. Above all, with her training and background in child psychology she is able to master those tantrums and she is endlessly patient, kind and gentle with my strong willled toddler! I am extremely disappointed that due to a new work circumstance I am unable to retain her. I cannot recommend Alev highly enough.
Alev looked after my then 16 months old daugther for 3 months every Thursday when I worked from home. I am a very protective mother, who doesn't trust other's looking after my daughter easily but with Alev I always had the peace of mind. She is very friendly, punctual and easy to get on with. She has also been very helpful trying to help my daughter eat, who is a very fussy eater. She can cook variety of healthy meals for children. My daughter really warmed up to her and even sometimes cried as she left. Unfortunately, I had to end my working from home arrangement and get back to working in the office but we are still using Alev for baby-sitting. I can highly recommend her for nanny and baby sitting positions.
Alev has been helping me for one month now with my 17month old daughter. I cannot recommend her highly enough. She is punctual and friendly, thoughtful and caring and really takes initiative in helping around the house with domestic things like washing up and unloading the dishwasher. She plays games and plans activities with my little girl that I am sure are aiding her development. Alev's past experience and studies means that she has a deep understanding of child psychology and this makes me feel that my baby is getting the best care emotionally when I am away from her. I wish I could afford to keep her to myself!
