Antoinet has been with our family for over 6 months. During this time she has cared for my 3 children, aged 5, 3 and 1 as well as providing extra care before and after school for my sons best friend. Despite having so many children to juggle, multiple school runs / preschool pick ups and a very annoying beagle to contend with she has never once been overwhelmed by what I know is sometimes a complete mad house! She is always calm, professional, fun and completely capable in any situation thrown at her. She immediately got to grips with our routines, the children's needs and differing personalities. She formed a close bond with them all exceptionally quickly and we immediately felt at ease knowing they were in her care. She made sure to always communicate even the smallest of details and would regularly tell me she had sorted the dates on the food in the fridge or remind me to pick up groceries I was running low on. Small things to some, but these little gestures meant a lot to us. I would not hesitate to recommend Antoinet to anyone, she has been fabulous and it is only due to a change in our financial circumstances that means we sadly have to end our time with her. She shall be missed greatly by us all.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this. I will pop over to see how everyone is in the new year. I will look after your children anytime x

I had met several nannies and childminders over the years, but none was like Antoinette. I met her online during the lockdown. She had daily virtual sessions over Skype with my daughter (4 years old) throughout the lockdown. She has been very persistent and patient with her especially given that my daughter was not used to teaching online and she had never met Antoin in person. She managed to engage her with a range of interesting, fun and educational learning activities. We would really love to have her again :) highly reccommended!

Thank you Thea, for taking the time to review the work I carried out with your gorgeous daughter. I have learnt so much and enjoyed my time with her. An hour is a long time to stay focused and she did extremely well X
I look forward to working for you again.

Antoinet supported our family for around seven months, I found her via childcare.co.uk and we met in person and then with the kids for a walk. From the start Antoinet was warm, caring, organised, practical and supportive. I am a stay at home mum with four children under seven (plus a dog!) and our house can be chaotic and loud - Antoinet was always a calm and fun presence and helped me spend time with the children in a way I couldn't manage on my own. She also offered a lot of practical help with washing, baking, organising kitchen cupboards and art supplies. She noticed the small things that would make a day to day difference in the house and I always appreciated that.

We only parted ways because the coronavirus has meant my husband is now working at home full time so our circumstances have changed significantly. If I ever need help with the kids again Antoinet will be the first person I call.

Thank you Antoinet!

Thanks Liz. The best review on the entire site! I enjoyed every minute of my time at yours, it was an amazing opportunity to work with you. I would come back in a heart beat x

The whole family calls her NetNet! She was a delight and we loved having her around when my boys were 1 and 5. She is the only person that I could be at peace leaving the kids with besides my own parents and my hubby.
The boys really enjoyed her company and doing things with her, and she was a great help to me as well during my return to work period after maternity leave.
We still keep in touch and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.

Thank you for leaving me a great review. I enjoyed my time in your home and always had fun with your gorgeous boys. I will visit soon X Antoinette

We employed Antionette to help us at a time of real family crisis...

She is the sweetest person and she is a ray of sunshine. I don’t know what we would have done without her. She is a joy to have around and we truly miss her. Unfortunately, she had to start a new job. We will miss her smiling face most! But wish her all the luck....
