Maria has been an absolutely amazing nanny to our one year old for the last eight months. She is kind, caring and genuinely loves our son, and she has become a member of our family! We are so sad to let her go as our son begins full time nursery.

Maria joined us when our son was only four months old, and both of us returned to full time work. Maria expertly managed our (sometimes demanding) requests to keep to a nap schedule, and helped us with weaning and sleep training. Without complaint she helped us introduce solids, washed re-useable nappies daily, took our son to a range of playgroups and classes, and kept the house clean and tidy. She is super diligent and communicative, extremely hardworking and flexible.

Maria spends her time with our son playing games, teaching him Spanish, reading him books and singing him songs. He lights up when she walks in the house each day.

Whichever family manages to snap Maria up will be lucky indeed - she is a real find!
