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.

Katie visited our house prior to babysitting to meet my two daughters aged 5 & 2 years which was lovely. They warmed to her straight away and were very comfortable in her company. She is a fantastic babysitter, very punctual, trustworthy, experienced, and we can relax and enjoy our evening knowing our children are in safe hands. Would highly recommend. Thank you!

We heard about Katie through a friend and hired her for babysitting when we needed to leave our 5 month old for the first time. We hadn’t met before but as soon as she arrived I felt comfortable with her. She was really reassuring and so knowledgeable on all aspects of childcare so she made me feel at ease. She knew I was nervous so kept me updated through the evening, sending photos of my baby on the monitor etc which allowed me to relax. We’ve used Katie several times since then and have found her brilliant. She coped really well with our baby even when he was having a difficult time sleeping and was able to comfort him back to sleep, which even we were struggling with at the time. She also gave loads of advice on how to improve his sleeping which was really beneficial. She’s warm, friendly and very easy to talk to. I trusted her instantly and would highly recommend her to anyone else looking for a babysitter.

After becoming unwell and in need of emergency childcare, we found Katie. She took sole charge of my two young daughters on a temporary basis while I was recovering.
It was an unsettling time for my children and I was anxious at the prospect at leaving my children with someone we were unfamiliar with. However, Katie was kind and thoughtful towards them, took them on some lovely days out and ensured they were well cared for and had a great time.
Katie was professional and punctual and always updated me throughout the day. I can highly recommend her based on our experiences.

This was the very first time that we left our 3 months old baby with someone else that we haven't met before and only first parents will know how daunting it can be!! I was very anxious that evening. I remember that when we met Katie I instantly thought that she genuinely loves what she does, she is very gentle, caring, confident and very professional! We had a wonderful evening outside knowing that our boy was in very good hands! We're so grateful and we cannot recommend Katie enough. THANK YOU!

Having found Katie, I'm hoping she will stay around a lot longer! Both children (4 month old and nearly 3 year old) took to Katie instantly. Our toddler generally makes a fuss at bedtime, but Katie put her to bed happy with no trouble at all. The baby is still somewhat temperamental during the evening and Katie managed to calm and settle him for the night.
With Katie's experience and professional manner I had no concerns leaving the children with her for the evening. I feel relaxed that my partner and I can now Enjoy the odd evening together, knowing the children are in safe hands.

We are visitors to Cardiff and Katie looked after our kids at the last minute. Made it easy for us to relax and enjoy a night out. I can recommend her and will use her again if needed. Thanks Katie!

Katie has been our nanny since August 2012. She has been with us since our eldest two children were 3 and 1. We now have children of 8 (boy), 5 (girl) and 3 (girl).

Katie has been a highly professional and reliable nanny throughout that period. She has adapted well as the children have grown. She has enabled us to go to work confident that our children are happy, safe and secure.

She was also a tremendous asset during my final maternity leave. She was excellent with both the new baby and the eldest two during a time of change, and a pleasure to work alongside.

Our children took to Katie from the start. She is very child-focused in her approach and creates a calm, happy and fun environment.

Katie has been a key part of our lives for nearly five years. We are sad as our youngest prepares to go to school in September and Katie leaves us.

Katie worked for me for nearly four years. I have three very active boys. She was fabulous with my youngest who was only 8months old at the time. She was also excellent at looking after the two older boys from the ages of five and six up until they were nine and ten. She was fun , sensible and honest.
She was flexible and nothing was too much trouble. As the children grew older and started nursery, she adapted her role to help with other tasks around the home to make my life easier, for the few hours that she had until they needed collecting again. She enabled me to return to work and juggle a demanding job and a busy home life. I never worried about the boys from the moment I left the house in the morning. She only ever contacted me at work when it was truly necessary. In the holidays she entertained them with picnics and trips suitable for all three of them. They didn't ever remember a time when she hadn't been part of our family and we are still in touch now. She genuinely cares for the children she looks after. When my youngest started school I only needed a nanny for the school drop off and pick up and so sadly katie had to leave us. We all missed her when she left.
