All praise for for superstar nanny

We are delighted to provide a reference for Charlotte

Charlotte worked as a nanny for our two-year-old daughter for 9 months. In that time she became a much-loved and indispensable part of our family. It is with deep regret and sadness, that a sudden family illness and the necessity of returning to Australia for an extended period, means that our time with Charlotte is abbreviated.

We have experience of other nannies, but Charlotte in her professionalism, experience and poise, is exemplary. She brings decades of experience to the role, which means she is focused and in control at all times.

Charlotte was inventive and productive with our daughter. She organised activities that were entertaining and stimulating. She turned cardboard boxes into dolls-houses and toy kitchens; she found imagination, play and possibilities for learning in the everyday. Equally, she was keen for our daughter to discover new places and organised frequent trips to museums, parks, playgrounds. Charlotte was proactive in this; we really appreciated the close observation of our daughter and consequent recommendation of developmental activities, learning-toys, etc. that gave new skills and fed burgeoning interests. There is no question that our daughter’s development came on in leaps and bounds in her company.

The two of them are great friends, nevertheless, Charlotte is able to assert gentle discipline when necessary. But more than this, there was a real sense of love between Charlotte and our daughter, creating a caring and loving environment in our absence during the day. (A nice touch in relation to this: Charlotte would keep us posted on their adventures via photographs on WhatsApp, which were certainly the highlights of our own day!)

Charlotte was also exemplary in daily practicalities. From the moment she entered the house every day she tidied and cleaned to create an optimum atmosphere, always leaving the place tidier than when she arrived. This is all the more notable because it is not something we asked Charlotte to do; nor was it our expectation. She exceeded our expectations and gave us more than we asked for.

We have deep affection for Charlotte. She is intelligent, creative, caring and thoughtful. It is perhaps worth reiterating that we have considered her very much part of our family and will miss her hugely; it is only our personal circumstances, and no action on Charlotte’s part, that necessitates this break.

We recommend her without hesitation and would be happy to be contacted for verbal support of this reference
