Lucy was our our Nanny for our wedding day, she was absolutely fantastic taking the pressure off us and our family and allowing us all to really enjoy the day knowing that our daughter was safe and happy with Lucy. Nothing was too much trouble and she happily did a 12 hour day. Can’t recommend her enough whatever your childcare needs.

Lucy is really lovely and got on really well with both my daughters straight away. Really trustworthy and reliable, so easy to talk to and get on with. felt comfortable leaving my girls with her without a worry and she kept in contact with me through the evening reassuring me that my girls are settled and being good and as a mum that goes a long way and is always lovely to hear. I would definitely let her have my girls again if and when I go out again. It was also lovely that Lucy told me when I got back that my girls were so good and they are a credit to me which was lovely to hear :)

Lucy has been great - I was very happy to leave my son with her. She was very good at communicating and was happy to come and meet us at our house before the day too. Would highly recommend her.

I'd recommend Lucy to any one interested in using a caring, reliable professional who is fun to be around fits in to your home environment/personal circumstances with ease and adaptability. She fitted in to our world with sensitivity and aplomb and has been a great support ever since Hire her or miss out.

Extremely happy with Lucy's service, my daughter adored her and I felt comfortable and confident to have her child mind.
Unfortunately I was let down last minute as the babysitter was ill however Lucy stepped in and was here within a few hours!
Lucy kept in touch throughout the night (but without a bother) and was happy to stay till rather late without a time set as I was attending a charity event and didn't know what time it would be finished.
Overall Lucy is fantastic with children (and pets!) she is friendly, reliable and enthusiastic! I will be using Lucy's services in the future and would highly recommend her to everyone! 😊
