My first nanny role was for twin girls who I looked after 4 days a week for just over a year, they were 5 months when I started.
One of my positions was with a family for nearly four years looking after three boys. (Ages 8 months 5 & 6 years old when I started) please look at my reviews for a reference from this position.
My last long term position which was in Cardiff, came to an end in July 2017.
I was with the family for Nearly 5 years, I looked after 3 children, when I started the children were 3 years and 13 months.
Mum then went on to have another baby and I stayed on as a mothers help to the baby and had sole charge of the other two children.
Mum then went back to work just after a year and I then became sole charge to all three children.
Please look at my reviews for a reference from this position.
Alongside this position I worked in a playgroup for just over a year, and in this time it enabled me to gain a vast amount of experience and knowledge on the foundation phase which I feel then benefited me in my nanny career.

Katie has looked after our two daughters aged 3 and 6 a few times and she is an utter delight to work with. She is punctual, reliable, and has a wonderful warmth combined with exceptional skill in childcare which makes the perfect combination of assets in choosing someone to entrust your children to. Our younger child has separation anxiety sometimes when we go out, and Katie knows exactly how to distract her and calm her down. She is so kind and reassuring, I always know my children are in the safest of hands when they are with Katie and I’d recommend her to anyone for any age child...she is a delight!
Katie has been our son's Nanny since August 2019, it was out first time hiring a Nanny and my first experience of returning to work when my son was 8 months old. Katie made the transition so much easier and she gave me every confidence my son would be so safe and well looked after, fast forward almost 1 year and that confidence has only grown stronger. Katie has an amazing relationship with my son, and I know when I leave him, he will be happy all day long. I see this in all the videos and photos I receive daily. Katie also has additional responsibilities managing a health condition our son has which she takes in her stride. Katie is excellent at ensuring his treatments are administered every day without fail and always has his health, safety, wellbeing and happiness at the heart of everything she does with and for him. Katie is very creative and will always find new things to engage our son with to promote his development and actively encourages his learning every day. Katie is enthusiastic, trustworthy, reliable and nurturing, for my son most importantly fun!
Katie was employed with us between Oct 2017 - Aug 2019. During this time she cared for our 3 children. Her duties involved school drop off / pick up, activities, days out, crafts, planning and preparing meals and snacks. There is no doubt that Katie cared and tended for the childrens' needs. She was punctual, reliable and approachable. The kids will miss their Katie days. We wish you the very best for your future.
We have two children and needed someone to care for them while we worked on weekends.
Our eldest is autistic so needed someone who would be able to care for him and our bubbly 5 year old daughter, and Katie has fitted right in.
We are so pleased we found her.
We feel incredibly lucky counting on Katie as a Nanny. We do not have any family around and when we needed to leave our baby for the first time it was really daunting as we are first time parents and were very nervous about leaving our son with someone who we barely knew but Katie was lovely since the very first second, she visited us before taking the job with her impressive curriculum in Childcare and she showed from the very beginning confidence, professional manners and knowledge about childcare.
When we go out, she is always updating us sending photos, videos. She is confident to take him for outdoors activities which we found really nice and give us reassurance that he’s having a wonderful time as well as us.
Katie is now part of our lives, anytime that we need to go out we feel so relieved knowing that our son will be safe and at the same time will have a good time.
She has that special magic with children, our little one connected with her instantly and we cannot be happier and more grateful.
I would highly recommend Katie to anyone. She is just brilliant.
