Exceptional experienced and competent nanny

It is with much regret that Jackie will no longer be nanny to my daughter within the next few months, due to changes in my circumstances. Jackie will have been nannying for me for just under a year, she started when I returned to work after maternity leave. Given that I work full time, long hours and need to stay away every week for at least 1 night, I was quite anxious about leaving my daughter with anyone. I was amazed how my daughter took to Jackie from the start. Spending time with them both in the transition period filled me with confidence around Jackie's: ability, care, common sense, structure, cleanliness, cooking, honesty, reliability, experience, professionalism and personality that really, there need not have been much of a transition period at all. It's fair to say, as a 1st time mum, it was in fact me who needed the time to adjust. Jackie was particularly supportive and practical and I have always felt we are in very safe hands.
My daughter was 12months when Jackie started working with us. She looks after all her care needs during the day, takes her to a toddler group and a couple of different classes during the week, cooks all her meals, does the weekly shop, puts her to bed the nights I am not there (with absolutely no issues), goes for walks, various indoor and outdoor activities. Jackie is always very respectful of my priorities as the parent, however, she will make suggestions where she feels she has some value to add which has been useful.
I can honestly say, I have been 100% comfortable with Jackie looking after my daughter from the start. They adore each other and have a lovely relationship and bond I thought I could only wish for and did not think we would be luck enough to find. I really feel in this 1st year of going back to work, my daughter has had the best possible start.
Jackie is very much part of our family and has been a support to me in so many ways. It is important to me Jackie finds a great new position. If you would like any further information about the time Jackie has worked with me or require a further reference, please do not hesitate to contact me.
