Below are the reviews that Christel has written.
Alison worked for us for 1.5 months, from February 20th 2020 to April 15th 2020. Unfortunately we had to terminate her contract because of the COVID-19 circumstances.
She looked after our three children aged 13, 11 and 5. She was looking after them the morning before school. She would take them to school afterwards. She would then come back in the afternoon to pick them from school. She would finally stay with them at home after school during term time until we get home. She also looked after them during February half-term holidays.
We find Alison, reliable, honest, friendly and affectionate to the children. My children really like her and were really happy to be looked after by her.
We had a previous experience with a nanny that did not go well. So we were a little bit apprehensive of hiring a new nanny. Alison swept our fear way.
She is well-organised, a keen worker - She offered to help us with house cleaning and ironing while she was looking after the kids, and she did it very well – and more importantly, our 3 children love her. She has only been 1.5 months with us but still nowdays, my youngest tell me, he wish Alison was still here.
My second child can be "moody and "emotional". Alison dealt with him calmly and firmly setting a trusted relationship with him.
When we returned from work, our children had their homework done, had dinned and the living-room and the kitchen were tidied. It allowed us to have very enjoyable week days evening.
Icing on the cake, she has her own car which made our life so much easier.
On top of all the above. Alison is trust worthy and flexible. We definitely recommend Alison. Her past experience, her well-organised approach and her care for our children made her a great nanny.
