Shirley took care of 4 toddlers 1-3 at my brother-in-law’s wedding. She was great with the kids, super attentive and played with them. Put them all to bed and stayed with them until the reception was over. I would highly recommend her.

Many thanks for your review, it was a pleasure to meet you all on such as special day

Very lovely lady, highly professional in what she is doing. At first meeting brought all the certificates and documents to evidence her capabilities and background. Easy going, bright minded, highly intelligent. Our son loved her at first sight. We used Shirley for few times when going out with partner, evenings. Would use her service again when needed, would recommend to all parents.
