Aspasia is so lovely to work with. She is punctual, very communicative and reliable. My daughter, who has autism and doesn't always warm to people easily, immediately felt comfortable with her. Aspasia has a beautifully calm and reassuring nature which made my daughter relax easily. Her attentive and competent care is immediately apparent and gave me every confidence in her. It was lovely to have her at our home and I would not hesitate to recommend her very able care to others!
Aspasia looks after my 6 year old boy every Thursday afternoon and she is great with him. She also interacts very well with my 10 year old daughter. I also see how she does her every day nanny job with 3 young boys and she is great!!
Aspasia is calm, kind and very caring with the children but retaining total control on what is going on. I think her calm and pleasant persona is rather contagious to them.
She is also extremely punctual and has a very sunny disposition. Her attitude about everything is always very positive :-)
I have no reservations at all recommending her.
Aspasia is our 3 boys nanny and we feel very lucky to have her take care of our precious children. Aspasia has an exceptional contact with children from the beginning. She managed to build a trustworthy, caring and loving relationship with each of our children aged 7, 5 and 3, who love her. She can manage difficult situations (tantrums, children fight and challenging behaviours) with a calm and maternal authority. I would leave my children with Aspasia a whole weekend without hesitation, I recommend her without any hesitation. She is a wonderful person to have your children taken care of !
Aspasia is a trustworthy baby-sitter and my sons love her! She is very calm, kind and caring person and she answers very quickly to text message which is very helpful. She even sent me a picture of a game they were playing at. My boys keep asking when Aspasia will look after them next time! So I recommend Aspasia with "eyes closed"!!
We moved to the UK three months ago from the States, and needed to find an occasional babysitter to watch our 5 year old and 1 year old. We initially hired her due to her credentials (Ofsted, etc) and her great reviews from other parents. She's now watched our children a few times, and can confirm the sentiments in the reviews that prompted us to hire her. She is excellent. My children, even my one year old son who is still in the stranger-danger phase, were comfortable with her right away. My daughter enjoys playing with her, in particular card games and reading books. Besides her warm demeanor, she is great from a scheduling and reliability standpoint. She responds to messages right away and usually arrives a few minutes early. We are lucky to have found her and can recommend her wholeheartedly!
