"Trustworthy and Enthusiastic"
review of AmySpend - Nanny in Molesey
Trustworthy and Enthusiastic
I employed Amy Spender over a two month period from mid November 2018through to the end of January 2019 to support me in the immediate
period after the birth of our second daughter.
We interviewed a number of candidates and were impressed by Amy who exhibited good organisational skills and a real passion and enthusiasm for the job. Right from the first interview she showed interest in our older daughter and she quickly built a good rapport with her. This was really important to us as we knew our daughter would find the transition from being the sole centre of attention to having to suddenly adapt to having a sister taking her mum's attention difficult.
Over the two months she provided valuable support to my husband and I, helping to look after the new-born and our two and a half year old
daughter. Amy was punctual, well organised, always keen to help and
asking if there was more she could do.
Amy has been a trusted and valued member of the family, driving our
oldest to and from nursery every day. She also took her on a number of
excursions and activities over the Christmas period, and was thoughtful in recommending various paints,play dough etc. She bought Christmas presents for the children, and thoughtfully gave us pottery
with our childrens' hand and foot prints - a lovely and very thoughtful gift which we really appreciated. Critically she bonded well with oldest daughter who liked being with her.
Amy is incredibly flexible and accommodating; at thirty minutes
notice, and prior to us having a contract in place, she was able to
pick up our daughter from nursery, feed her dinner, bath and put her
to bed and give up her evening to babysit. Without this my husband
would have not have been able to attend the birth of our second
daughter which was a week earlier than anticipated. For that and the
rest of Amy's efforts we will always be grateful.
I wish Amy every success in her future career and would have no
hesitation in recommending her.
