Lucy has looked after our 11 month old daughter on a couple of occasions, for day time and bedtimes, and we can't recommend her highly enough! Lucy is warm, personable, punctual and professional and we have complete trust and confidence when leaving our daughter with her. Lucy sends us updates whilst looking after our girl and has been fantastic at keeping in touch throughout the whole process. We feel extremely lucky to have found a nanny like Lucy!

Lucy was an absolute star. We had a wedding to attend and needed an afternoon/evening babysitter for my 11 month old (who has never been looked after by anyone else), and Lucy was brilliant. She was punctual, professional and kept me updated throughout the day. My daughter was happy & settled when I got home and seemed to have had a lovely time! Highly recommend.

When I first met Lucy I knew she would be a great person to care for my daughter. My daughter of 3 years old always comes back from her time with Lucy with a fun memory made and beaming with a smile. She is also flexible when plans change.I highly recommend her.

I have known Lucy for a while now as doing add-hoc days and overnight. To sum up, very disappointing eventually and I will never recommend her to anyone. Extremely money and self-oriented rather than child-centred. Be careful

Response by Avatar for lucy lucy on 11/11/2022:

I’m beyond disappointed to read this review after it was 5 star last week. The only negative review I have received in all my years.
Totally the opposite to what other clients have experienced.
I am so sorry you feel like this.
I really enjoyed looking after your children for a couple of months.

Lucy has come in to our lives and has been totally brilliant in every way. My two girls (aged 2 and 5) have bonded quickly and enjoy their time with her. She is utterly reliable and punctual and a great person too. She is empathetic to our needs and does all she can to help. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
