Jackie has been looking after our daughter for a few weeks now. I can echo other reviews and without a doubt say we are very lucky to have her. From the initial communication, to getting to know my daughter and us, Jackie has been wonderful. Our daughter loves her and looks forward to seeing her. It is lovely that Jackie keeps us updated with pictures and texts.
With a child who may need an epipen, we found her level of professionalism and attention to detail very reassuring. She has helped us out with additional hours during an emergency as well. I trust Jackie and would like to thank her for going above and beyond

Thankyou so much for this lovely review. I look forward to minding such a lovely little girl.

Jackie is so proffessional and organised. As soon as I met her I felt at ease and knew I could trust her to babysit whilst I go to work. My girls really enjoy spending time with her and speak very highly of their time together.

Thankyou Jackie for all your help and everything you do for the girls xx

I absolutely enjoy my time with the girls. Thanks so much for this review ☺️

We enlisted the help of Jackie a few months ago and we have very little family to help us with childcare and we needed somebody we could trust to help us out. I was a little nervous at first but I really didn’t need to be as Jackie is amazing.
From our first meeting she was straight in interacting with our son as if she had known him all his life. She had a calm presence and puts you and the baby at ease. She keeps us up to date with messages and pictures when she is looking after our son and follows our routine to ensure our is settled and happy. Jackie has been a god send to us to enable us to have some time away and I would recommend her to anyone.

Thankyou so much for this. Lovely children and I enjoy my time with them.

Jackie is a fantastic babysitter and she helped me out last minute and was so nice and my kids enjoyed spending time with her. And they actually asked to see her again 🙂 I felt comfortable leaving her with my kids.
