Shona has provided my 3 children the most professional and quality childcare which provides a sense of reassurance every time. With experience, flexibility and reliability alongside, I would highly recommend Shona for childcare and will continue to value her service and support.

Thank you for your lovely feedback review of my services, it’s very much appreciated.
I have such fun time with the children it’s so nice to see children enjoying board games than having their heads stuck into a phone or computer. I will continue to provide care as and when you require me.
Shona looked after our 1 and 3 year old for an evening including bed time. It was the 1st time we left the boys with anyone and we felt confident in Shona's skills as a nanny. She got them both asleep and in their beds (almost a miracle 😆). Shona has a calm and nurturing approach and we will definitely use her again!

Thank you for the lovely feedback.
Look forward to seeing the boys again.
Shona has been the childminder for our two daughters over the past 8 years. She provides an excellent service, is kind, caring and organised. Importantly, both girls really enjoyed any time with Shona. I've no hesitation recommending Shona for any childcare duties.

Thank you for your review.
It was a joy to care for the girls I can’t believe it was 8 years, we had lots of fun together the girls especially enjoyed crafts and walking Alfie.
We miss the girls very much if you ever need help with babysitting or dog sitting you have my number.
Wishing the family all the best.
Shona took fantastic care of our 8 month old son recently, making our wedding day completely stress-free. He was a little tearful and out of sorts being away from his usual schedule/routine, however Shona had the patience of a saint, and nothing was too much trouble. She brought great toys and activities that he loved, and took him out for lots of walks around the venue to keep him happy. Thank you so much Shona! :)

Thank you again for choosing me to care for little Ted on your special day, he is such a wee cutie he did love the train set.
I would like to wish you all the very best wishes and happiness.
Shona looked after my grandson during my daughter’s wedding. This was obviously a very special occasion but the welfare of my grandson was of paramount importance so we were delighted to meet Shona and discover what a caring and capable person she was.
Nothing was too much bother and she followed the routine that my daughter asked her to do.
My grandson was very happy with Shona and we would definitely use Shona’s services again!
We would recommend Shona to anyone, thanks again very much for your help Shona, it was invaluable on my daughter’s big day!

It was a pleasure looking after your grandson, he was a wee bundle of fun and such a contented little boy.
He enjoyed building bricks with me and my story sack puppets.
If I can help in the future please don’t hesitate to contact me.
Wishing you and the family best wishes.
