Karen immediately made us feel relaxed as she is clearly very confident with young children. Both of my boys can be very energetic and Karen was brilliant in helping them to enjoy playtime whilst also being able to calm them down ready for dinner and bed time.
She is really reliable, my boys love her and we couldn't ask for better.

The title says it all really!

We have had Karen helping our family regularly for almost 2 years now. She helps look after my 2 young children while I am at work as my wife has some health issues and can finds things difficult. With this in mind, not only does Karen look after and help the children but she also assists my wife with anything she may need around the house such as making cups of tea or hanging washing up.

Karen is very friendly and her experience in childcare is evident. Our children love her and treat her as part of the family. She is always punctual and very responsive to any communications or requests. We feel lucky to have found her :-)

Thank you Kevin, it is a pleasure to help you all.
You have made me feel very welcome and appreciated..

Karen provided us with 3 1/2 days of nanny cover whilst we were visiting her area. On the lead up, she was very conscientious, providing us will all her papers, certificates and a number of different references: who all spoke so highly of her. We arranged a video-call so we could meet face-to-face and we were really struck by how much effort she put into making it so easy and smooth and we really established a trusting relationship before we even met in person.
On the first day, we couldn’t get over how quickly our 20 month old took to Karen. She came to where we were staying/working and he was happy to go outside and play and be in her company. We often spotted them smelling the flowers, throwing sticks in the stream, wondering around the grounds - really happily and easily.
Hudson got sick and Karen was so helpful in advising us about where to go for treatment and medicine as well as willingly adjusting her time to come and help.
We will be using Karen for sure next time we are in the area! I only wish we lived closer so we could use her more often. I highly recommend and trust Karen with our little boy who adored her.

Karen comes to our house and helps us in the morning by preparing our children for school and taking them there. She does an excellent job extremely reliably. She's very willing to adapt when our arrangements demand it. She is caring and patient and has established a great rapport with us.
