Joanne has been outstanding with my newborn. She’s highly experienced and knows exactly what to do in every aspect. She was able to teach me things and that I didn’t know about newborns from the way they cry, to the way they feed etc. I felt so comfortable being around her, and leaving Joanne with my newborn over night.
Joanne was able to talk about sleep training in the future and ways to deal with colic and reflux which are so common in babies. I am so happy to have found Joanne as I feel that not just having her as a nanny but a guide to babyhood. I am able to text or phone her if I ever need help and she’s always there to help.
I could not recommend her more, she’s reliable, hardworking and my baby absolutely loved her. Will definitely be booking Joanne in again for any future babies.
Joanne was nanny to our almost 4 year old son and 2 year old daughter for 5 weeks (it was only a temporary role until both children started full time nursery). I cannot recommend Joanne more, she is very warm and loving towards the children (who adore her) but is still gently firm and in control (they listen to her) and extremely knowledgeable. We have had two previous nannies and what really puts Joanne in a class of her own how organised she is, pro-active and forward thinking. She made lovely nutritious meals for the children, took them on a variety of activities which she researched and organised herself both outside (the Zoo, Willows Farm, playdough, soft plays, music classes) and at home (baking, crafts, airplane runways out of masking tape on the floor and sofa caves!) etc. She is very health and safety conscious (from car seats to food preparation). Our house was always neat and tidy when we came home and she was more than happy to do light housework.
Joanne is one of the rare nannies that loves children and is also a true professional at what she does. As two busy working parents, it was great to have someone very organised who did a lot of the thinking for us. She was very attentive to what our parenting style is and respectful of that. She was also great at communicating to us – staying to tell us about the day in detail and sending us many photos and videos. Although she was only with us for such a short time, we will be staying in touch and I wish we’d had her for longer.
Joanne helped me for those first few initial weeks with my newborn, she is highly knowledgable and really knows what shes doing, i felt very comfortable for my baby to be in her care! Joanne is very calm and relaxed which helped my baby settle, couldnt recommend Joanne enough!
Joanne joined us in April 18 when our daughter was 6 weeks old and son nearly 3 years. In the last year and a half, Joanne has helped to implement a routine for our daughter and adjust accordingly as she grows and reaches each new milestone, she has also helped our son to learn and grow and get him ready to start school in September. Joanne brought with her a wealth of knowledge and experience for both our children, I’ve learnt a lot from Jo too! Joanne is thoughtful and trustworthy, we’ve never had any concerns and could not recommend her enough. We will all be very sad to see her go, but know the positive impact she will have on her next family!
Jo came to help me get back to work when my baby was 13 weeks. It was fantastic to have her around. She is knowledgeable and helped us implement some new routines with my baby girl but she also came ready to work with us in whatever way suited us best. She was calm, friendly and my little girl had a ball with her. I felt completely comfortable with Jo in my home and taking my baby out. It was such a positive experience I cannot recommend Jo highly enough.
