Vikki was amazing with my 7 month old, 4, 6 and 9 year old children. She made effort with the children making sure they were comfortable with her also which I liked. Was very short notice as I got let down by someone else and she was happy to meet to arrange. Will be using Vikki 100% again. Such a enthusiastic and happy person 🤗

Thank you Ash looming forward to seeing the children again especially when I have the registration term time go ahead after September
Many thanks vikki

We've never had anyone help take care of the children, so this is our first time in trying it out, I must say we certainly hit the jackpot with Vikki.
She has an incredible manner with children, she's an absolute natural which ensures they're at ease in her company immediately. It's a joy to see the boys so relaxed and enjoying themselves with her, and she gets 100% involved in every activity they do.
Vikki was certainly born to do this job and I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending her.

Thank you Safa your children are so good. So helpful and respectful. im really looking forward to looking after them again next time. Kind Regards Vikki

Vikki is fantastic with children. I have four kids ranging from 12 to 3 and she is phenomenal with them. I have two with ADHD and one with ASD and she has been patient, caring and understanding with them all. She has mounds of special needs experience and make every interaction unique and special for them all. I was so nervous having to leave them for first time but they had a ball. Vikki arranged to meet them with me before her first sitting so they knew what and who to expect. She makes everything fun for the kids but also respected all the boundaries that I set. She is fast becoming a member of the family.

Words can't explain how this review makes me feel. I absolutely love your little tribe. All I do is laugh when I have them. They are a credit to you Shona. I happy to be apart of there lives for a long time coming. ❤❤❤

Vikki is such a lovely person! I’ve been stressed about our first day but my kids just loved her straight away! They usually kinda shy with strangers but they’ve opened to her so easily. She’s funny, confident and caring so kids really like it :) happy I’ve found her. Definitely recommend!

Thank you Vikki and see you soon x
