About Me

The service i'm offering is for the back pocket or to give you more time to find the right nanny.

A step-in service for when your nanny housekeeper or carer needs time off or your let down at the last minute? Just need a few hours each week nothing regualr. then a step in service may help.
My business was registered in April 2017 ,how it works I come along have a meetings with you and the family. This gives you the opportunity to engage and run through what May be required, it also allows the children not to see me as a stranger should I be called at the last minute.

A few clients have arranged that out with an ad-hock situation arising they engage once a month to keep me connected with the children. (this suit some families)
If this is something which could be useful or you would just simple like further information, then give me a call for a chat or visit my website.

Fully insured, PVG checked dbs have my own vehicle, which is also insured to take passengers.
Regards Heather Dodds

Heather looked after our two kids (6yo boy and 2yo girl) for two weeks while we attended a conference in Edinburgh. The moment we met her we knew we were in luck! She did her best to accomodate our needs. She picked the kids up and took them by car to various child friendly attractions in the city, including the swimming pool and the cimbing centre. There was never a dull day for them. She provided their food, she put them to sleep when we were late and she even washed their clothes :) She was independent, professional and reliable and we felt confident to leave the kids in her care. I have met my full share of babysitters and nannies during my parenting years and Heather tops this list!

Thank you for taking time out to send a review, very much appreciated and hope we will catch up again say hi to the kids for me missing them both Heather

Heather is an incredibly warm and generous carer, lively and bubbly enough to always enthral and light up my daughter's eyes. She is also very experienced so you feel relaxed and confident that she can take care of any issues that arise in your absence. A gem to know and work with. I would love to keep working with Heather when ever I come for work to Edinburgh, subject to her availability. I can so understand why she is in such high demand!

Hi Tasneem, thank you for taken time out to write a re-view very much appreciated. Hope to catch up soon Heather

We just wanted to thank you for the great help you have been since our return from Singapore. We have not had a nanny before in the UK, and the demands of our relocation were considerable. We needed someone flexible, organised, reliable and kind who was able to adapt to various situations as we were trying to settle with a 5 year old and a newborn baby. You not only met the challenge but proved yourself to be inventive in finding exciting and fun things to do with our 2 children over the past 5 months.
We are wholeheartedly happy to recommend you to any family looking for an ad hoc nanny and we wish we could take you with us to our new destination!
Wish you all the best!

we can definitely recommend Heather for babysitting; my 8 month old son and 3 years old daughter loved her and were well cared for. Very relaxed and excellent with babies - certainly knows what she's doing as our little boy and girl can be a handful! Thanks again and will be needing you again I'm sure!

I know we posted a review months ago but sure enough Heather came to our rescue again. The kids adore her and she's been such a support for the whole family through stressful times! Thank you so much Heather!
