Lovely reviews from current families.

You will notice some of the reviews are about a year old, this is due to us working with the same families still, which we are very lucky to do, we don’t often get an opening and this only really happens if the child or children start school etc..

Children are my passion. I Love watching them blossom and grow... I treat all children as thou they are one of my own. Plenty of play and cuddles.
I have a few lovely families now that I do babysitting for, as well as nannying.

We do collect from Nursery and supply the car seats..
We provide you with a childcare Daily Diary which we fill in with details of food eaten, nappies changed, sleep times and activities done.
There is a section in the book for you to jot down notes for me and vice versa ( our families love them!)

I can also work Saturdays,( I try to do farm visits, soft play and parks)
Sunday’s catered for if an emergency

Newborn experience ( we have recently finished overnights which we started with a two week old to give mum 2 nights rest a week) we did this for a few months.

Get in touch with your requirements...Happy to accommodate if I can..
I’m not currently registered with Ofsted as nannies don't have to be so unfortunately cannot take childcare vouchers..).
We are in the process of getting registered and should be able to accept vouchers by October/ November.

Feel free to give me a message or a text...
Happy to meet for an informal coffee and chat, to meet you and the children..
(Also please note I am NOT a cleaner so I don’t do housework/ ironing etc...Just childcare.)
Obviously I don’t mind clearing up child’s mess etc ..

Thanks for reading..

Thank you Andy.
Your children are a pleasure to look after 😊

Since returning to work about a month ago, Lorraine and her daughter Sammy have been looking after my 3 little children once a week. It’s a great help knowing they are coming to the house, as I have to leave early for work. They are very good with the children who look forward to them coming. They have been to the park and enjoyed doing baking. They have also been a great help doing occasional work when I needed cover for some training mornings. Sammy has sent me photos on WhatsApp which I love. Highly recommended.

Thank you for your review Caroline.
Sammy and I are enjoying our time with the children and helping them grow.

Loraine and her daughter Sammy have been looking after my newborn baby girl for a few weeks now. They already feel like part of our family. Both are friendly, caring and very supportive. My wife, as a first time Mum, highly values all the advice, help and kind words Loraine always offers. Our baby girl loves all the cuddles and attention she receives from Loraine and Sammy and we feel happy and relaxed about leaving her in such capable hands.

Thank you so much for your review Alastair.
Sammy and I are enjoying helping your little girl grow..
She’s a joy to have.

Loraine has been helping me out regularly with my two babies for a few months and I now honestly don’t know what I would do without her! She is really warm and natural with the twins and I feel very comfortable leaving them with her while I get things done. She is brilliant!
