Helen has looked after my daughter since she was 9 months old, she will be 3 soon.
My daughter absolutely adores Helen and I believe that is because she is such a lovely caring person who genuinely loves what she does. I would recommend her to anyone & everyone in a heartbeat.

Helen has looked after both my children aged 2 & 3yrs. At her presant job. She always has a smile on her face and my children love seeing her. They talk about her when they are not with her. Helen is very down to earth and can turn her hand to anything. She is also not to bad at singing. ! She's is very creative. Your children will love being with her. ?
