After finding Ashley on here, we “used” her one day per week through the summer holidays and she’s now our choice babysitter.

On first meeting Ashley, my husband and I had a good feeling. She’s friendly and child-orientated and, what we loved most, honest!

She’s developed a bond with our little man, he always has a fantastic time with her, he asks about her when she’s not around, she sends great picture updates and - most importantly - it’s clear she puts the kids first.

Whilst it’s scary leaving your child with someone who isn’t family - Ashley made us feel totally at ease and confident in her abilities. We’ll continue to choose Ashley - if she’s not available, we’re not going out. Ha!

What can I say! Ashley feels more like an extended part of the family. Nothing is ever too much trouble for her, she goes above and beyond and most of all she puts me at ease and gives peace of mind leaving my son. I feel as though I’ve left him with a member of the family. She is absolutely amazing with him. He comes home with a big smile on his face and absolutely loves spending time with Aunty Ashley, the animals and the other kids. As well as having fun, she covers all the learning topics that a nursery would, in a fun, safe & stimulating environment. She is naturally a caring, fun, warm ( crazy, in a good way) person with a tremendous amount of energy which she gives out, hence why any child in her care will flourish. She genuinely cares and does her upmost best to make sure my son is happy. She really is a gem. Very lucky to have found her.

Ashley is the best thing that ever happened to our family!! Due to my work situation I have had to be temporarily separated from living with my husband (for one year )who I only see on weekends.

I would not have coped with this situation without Ashley. She always gives more than 100% and within days of being employed became family to both myself and my baby.

My baby is safe and happy and really loves Ashley. They go off each day to have an “adventure” as she calls it and sends me photographs on wattsapp. I see my baby smiling and laughing and clearly enjoying himself.

Ashley brings her knowledge and experiences to share with me but also respects my preferences in what my baby eats and how long he sleeps etc.

It’s so wonderful to see my baby thriving and loving life wether they are at a soft play place, or a playgroup, the library, swimming, going for walks at Apedale nature reserve or the monkey Forrest. He is sometimes covered in paint or mud just the way little children enjoying life should be ❤️

I can not recommend Ashley more highly than to say when my child is in her care I know without a doubt that she is giving him as much love and care as is possible.

I must just add it’s amazing the way she treats even a 12 month old baby with such respect and dignity.

Thank you Ashley for everything that do for my precious baby and for my family.

Ashley is so creative and imaginative. She has a thorough knowledge of the Early Years Foundation Stage which is the development and education guidelines Ofsted have written. So she is always assessing my toddler and my baby and then doing things to challenge them and their learning in such fun ways.
Ashley takes them to great groups. My children have been to messy play group and my daughter will now play with anything (4 months ago she would scream if she got anything on her hands. Now she has fun developing her senses!
She takes them to music groups and swimming and to the park, museum, soft play, sand and water play, to see animals, to the library etc.

Both my children have become more adventurous and now are willing to try so many things thanks to Ashley.

We would highly recommend Ashley!

Ashley looked after my children from aged 4 & 8 at a local nursery. She quickly became the kid's favourite and the only reason they wanted to go!
The kids were very attached to her, she's very nurturing, senstive and caring but also knows how to deal with undesirable behaviour in a positive way.
She also babysat from me many times in my home and at her own home, I never worried about them when they were with her, she is fantastic with kids, very gifted. Ashley is a gift to any family in need of childcare.

Ashley worked for me in my own home caring for my son who absolutely adored her. She was professional but personal. She was always flexible and would always help out when ever she could. As a single parent she was extremely valuable to both of us, I don't know how I would have managed without her. I only wish she could have moved with us!

Ashley has looked after my three children at a nursery and they all love her and miss her lots!
Ashley is lots of fun my children loved going to nursery, she kept us informed of everything that the children had taken part in daily, what they had eaten and how they had been through the day.
Ashley is a lovely very caring person and nothing is ever too much for her.
I would definitely recommend Ashley to be a Nanny for your children :-).

Ashley looked after my children for a couple of years. Ashley always informed me of my children's activities and what they had ate. She was so much fun to be around and at the same time very professional. I find Ashley to be a great influence on children and always puts there needs first. She is reliable and a lovely person. My children certainly miss her especially my youngest who mentions her regularly. Nothing was ever too much trouble and she always had a smile for you. I would not hesitate to recommend Ashley as a nanny.

I am a registered childminder and I first met Ashley last year when she took over caring for two children whom I could not meet care requirements for. Ashley made a great impression on the mum of the boys, whereby Ashley’s experience in nannying and nursery work was spoken about, however it was Ashley’s caring, kind and genuine personality and her love for nature that shone through.

Ashley would occasionally bring the boys to ours for play dates, whereby the close attachment she had formed with them was evident. It was also great to see that she valued the opinions of other professionals and was helping the older child in an area that had been recommended by the nursery.

During this time I have got to know Ashley and can honestly say that she is more than just kind and caring, she is passionate and dedicated to the children in her care. I would highly recommend Ashley, knowing that she offers a high quality service.
