First time we left our 9 month old with a babysitter and couldn’t be happier, Laura was brilliant and let us know that she was okay whilst we were out. 10/10.

Thank you

Laura came to our rescue when our regular nanny had to take time off sick.
She immediately bonded with our boys and they are very happy in her company (age 4 and 2). She is fantastic at following their lead with play and is always developing new games and activities to keep them busy. Laura has really taken the time to get to know the boys and takes their safety as paramount. Her motto of fair, firm and fun certainly brings the best out of our little ones and they are always delighted to see her. Overall, we highly recommend Laura.

We found Laura in a crisis when our permanent nanny unexpectedly went off sick. She has been an absolute wonder. From the moment she met our children, aged 4.5 years and 19 months it was clear how natural a bond she has with children. She is extremely experienced, professional and respectful of parent's wishes and parenting styles. Laura does all sorts with the children, believing that every activity has some potential for learning. Both of the kids have a real sparkle in their eye at the end of the day. They are growing in confidence and ability after just a short time with her and we are immensely grateful. Any employer would struggle not to be wowed.

Thank you for the review , much appreciated

Laura has been a godsend to us this last few weeks as she has helped us at short notice. She threw herself straight in with our lego obsessed 4 year old, playing with him and creating new and educational games for him. He absolutely loves her. Laura has also cared for our 8 year old and set up craft activities and games completely using her own initiative which let myself and my husband able to work uninterrupted! Thank you Laura!

Thankyou

Laura came to help us look after our 12 month old at very short notice but she has been incredible. She bonded with him quickly, followed his daily routine with no issues, and has taught him lots of new skills. He loves playing with her and always smiles when she walks through the door in the morning. Brilliant helper!
