In March my husband and I went on holiday without our children for the first time in a long time. Lucy was so helpful the whole time, an absolute professional and the children adore her. With plenty of activities planned and organised by Lucy the children were happy and entertained which made it so much easier for us to be away from them. Lucy was also wonderful in providing updates whenever we wanted to know how the children were doing and organising phone calls with them to suit our timings.
I couldn’t recommend Lucy highly enough, we will definitely be working with her for a long time to come. The entire time we felt confident that our children were safe and well looked after.

We have three handfuls aged 4, 6 and 8. Lucy has been an absolute natural and a pro in every way - the children love her and look forward to seeing her. Everything you could ask for in a nanny. Recommended without reservation!

Lucy has babysat for our 4 month old twins twice and I can’t recommend her highly enough! I was a little nervous leaving them but Lucy put me at ease and I came back to two happy contented babies. She got on really well with our 8 year old daughter too :-)

Lucy is everything you want and more in terms of childcare. She is not only thorough and highly professional but she is also charismatically engaging around the children who are instantly captivated by her presence. She has a “spark” about her that cannot be found just anywhere… it’s special.
She instantly makes you feel at ease and slots into your family as if she was always there.

We had Lucy come in at short notice to help with our 3 year old who had broken his leg. She she so good, I cannot recommend enough! My son had a lovely time, painting, playing games and having stories read to him. I was upstairs working and I could hear him laughing and enjoying himself. Lucy is professional, capable and highly recommended.
