Life is better with Charlie Around

Charlie has worked with us for 4 years now and we are very sad to see her go. She has integrated into our family incredibly well and the kids are settled and happy with her.

She is very proactive and takes the children to all sorts of activities that they enjoy as well as encouraging them to bake and do crafts at home. She is also adaptable and open to particular things the children would like to do and any suggestions I may have.

She is extremely accessible and very quick to respond to any questions I have during the day.

When I come home from work the house is calm and quiet with the children happily munching their dinner.

Anyone would be very lucky to have Charlie as their nanny.

Response from Charlie

Over the past 4 years Ruth has been an amazing employer, she has gone above and beyond to make me feel a part of the family. I have always felt appreciated and comfortable in her home. I feel both parents have put all faith into trusting me and my judgements with both children and their home. I have been given more than a reasonable amount of time for any upcoming holidays etc to enable me to make plans of my own. I have enjoyed working with this family so much that Ruth has had to remind me i have holiday of my own to take. Whoever fills this position is an extremely lucky candidate!

Ruth and Ian have two beautiful children Thomas (5) and Anna (almost 3). These children have extremely great characters and have lovely manners. They love to laugh, be cheeky, look to you as role model whilst in your care but are great at knowing when to respect boundaries and calm down for a cuddle with some popcorn and Disney movies before bed! I have been extremely lucky to have had the freedom to explore and experience a variety of places with the children over this time.

This family has grown to be great friends and a part of my own family. It will be very hard to move on from this position. A great opportunity for any nanny to be a part of.
