I would highly recommend Karis for any nannying/babysitting work. She worked with my family over the Christmas/New Year period, was an absolute pleasure to deal with AND my daughters loved her. She took care of them both (a toddler and baby) with no fuss whatsoever...bringing them to various classes, playing with them, bathtime, potty trips, dinner, bedtime.. I don't think there's anything she can't do! She is clearly very experienced with a fun and thoughtful attitude. Thanks so much Karis for all your help and look forward to working with you again.
Karis babysat for our 7 and 9 year old one evening in December. The kids enjoyed her company very much. She clearly knows how to work with kids and is great at it. If I need a babysitter again I will definitely contact Karis.
My partner and I got in touch with Karis to look after our 8 nieces and nephews (ages 4 - 13) during our wedding reception, and they did an absolutely amazing job. All the kids adored both Karis and Margot, which meant they stayed with them happily in a separate room while we got on with speeches and drinking! I am so glad I was able to find Karis on here, she helped out so much and made a potentially stressful part of my wedding day go totally smoothly. My sister said "they are exactly the kind of people you want looking after your kids". Thank you so much Karis and Margot!
I found Karis on this site when I needed childcare for one afternoon/evening for my two year old whilst visiting London. Karis was responsive and really put me at ease. Despite my worries about leaving my child with someone unknown, he had a great time with Karis. Karis sent me updates of their adventures throughout the day and successfully navigated bedtime and my child slept through for the first time in ages and woke up calm and happy. Karis was relaxed, responsive and sensitive and immediately managed to draw my child out of their shell. I will definitely use Karis again and have already passed on their details to friends!
Karis has been taking care of our daughter E on a full time basis since May when my daughter was 11 months old. She has been fantastic. It's not just her experience - she's intelligent and good natured so very easy to work with and applies herself to the job. She's taken excellent care of E and we've made so much progress in these past few months across food, sleeping, transitioning from bottles to cups, etc. Karis initiated many of these changes and we could have open constructive conversations together on how to tackle them. My daughter was even a bit sick during this time and Karis could not have been more supportive during this. I honestly don't know how we would have managed without her since my husband and I both work. E will really miss her. I also think of her a someone who would be a good influence around my daughter. We highly recommend her and hope to keep working with her in the future.
