We have found Mary Poppins :-)!

Our Daughter Marianne who is now 6 has been looked after by Karen for 2 years now. Karen has become an integral part of our family. She has a genuine passion for children. She is caring, loving, patient, full of attention and also has a natural authority. Marianne loves staying at Karen's every day.

As working parents we had to rely heavily on Karen's support and often with last minute changes. Karen has always been extremely accommodating, flexible and 100% reliable. She goes above and beyond her duties as childminder. She is truly a superstar, always attentive, smiling. Just a joy!

She is fun, loving, creative and will always look for different activities to support children's development.
She takes them out to the farm or to the park or library and the children always get along well and have become true friends.

Karen provides a home and Marianne has been adopted by the entire family... including Bella, Karen's lovely and gentle dog :-).

I feel so grateful to Karen for her amazing warmth, generosity, love and attention towards our family. Living far from France and the family Karen has been a stable force helping us create a loving, caring, stable and fun environment for Marianne.

Karen is the real Mary Poppins and we can't thank her and her family enough for all they have done for Marianne and us.
She is one in a million!!! Thank you Karen.
