I hired Antoinet for mothers help. I have a 3 year old and two one year old twins now. Antoinet came to help us from March this year and has been an absolute star. The boys loved her straight away and still do 😊 Whenever she walks in they all crowd her to say hello. She is such a warm and lovely lady and ever so helpful. I would recommend her to any mum who may feel they need a little support/mothers help and any nanny work too. She is just fabulous. She has helped during the weekend for family events too when she can and has gone out of her way lots of times to help me. She is full of knowledge and advice. We just love her

Thank you so much for your kind words. I love helping you out and will continue to do so for as long as I can. Your boys are pretty amazing too!

We found Antionet through this website. She and our daughter bonded instantly, and had tremendous fun together. As new first time parents, she was also an invaluable help to us, with lots of helpful tips and advice. Not sure how we would have survived without her. She is very punctual, a good cook and most importantly fantastic with kids. Our little one never had a dull moment, and we were always glad to know she was in safe hands.

Thank you very much for your kind words. I love spending time with young children - they keep us young! I am sure we will remain friends for a long time B-)

We have two year old twins and Antoinette parachuted in to help us whilst our nanny was on maternity leave. She has so much experience in childcare that nothing fazes her. She is fair, fun and loves the kids. She is very proactive, always looking for new ways to entertain them and has a natural ability to calm down any tantrums. They love her and I would recommend her highly.

Thank you Jowas xx I love your babies too.

Antoinet was recommended to us by a friend and helped us out at short notice for several days last week. She did an amazing job. She has a great rapport with little ones - our daughter was instantly at ease with her and seemed very calm and happy each evening when we got home from work. Antoinet has lots of experience but was happy to follow our regular routine. Plus she even managed to find time to cook some lovely soup whilst baby was napping!
