We initially utilised Karen’s services for casual babysitting, that has expanded into a part time nannying role over the summer. She has been fabulous in keeping our 4 yr old stimulated and entertained (and of course very well cared for) during this time when she has been unable to attend nursery. She always comes back from her time with Karen bubbling with conversation and confidence. Karen’s communication, adaptability and reliability have been hugely reassuring for us, we will continue to use her services and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to other families.

How lovely to receive such an amazing review Micaela. Thankyou so much!

It has been been a pleasure to care for Anushka and spend time doing all the things we have both enjoyed over the summer, and will continue to do so until September, like exploring woods and beach days and meeting new friends along the way.

She is a lovely, confident and inquisitive little girl and we both love learning new things so I try to encompass that into our days as well as having lots of fun together. Infact I've learnt so much from Anushka I didnt know before!)

If our time together has contributed to her increased confidence and she has loved every minute, then that's mission accomplished!

Thankyou again
