My husband and I wanted to have a date night once a week but with a 12 month old that can be difficult! We had searched high and low for someone we felt suitable. I came across Patti and instantly felt reassured. She met with my baby quite a few times before we first left him with her for the first time. I was quite nervous about leaving my little boy for the first time but she put me at ease instantly...Patti was so confident and loving with our son, she sent regular text updates and even leaves a diary of what has happened during her time with my son. I couldn’t recommend Patti enough I feel so confident in her caring for my baby she obviously has extensive experience and a calming effect on children (managing to get my baby to sleep who is rather particular with this!!!)
Thank you Patti

"Thank you".... for your kind words. Knowing Mummy and Daddy, are having some time together, in the knowledge that thier little "Son" is well and looked after, whilst they have some special time together, can make a huge difference and is so well deserved! See you all very soon.
Love and best wishes.
We live in an area away from both sets of family and therefore finding a good babysitter has always been important and yet has evaded us... until we were recommended Patti. From the first meeting I could tell she was perfect for us, we have three boys who are gorgeous but also full of energy and fun and included a young baby when Patti started coming to us. Patti took the time to get to know the children and they adore her coming & this was from the very first time we used her. The boys love having stories and bedtime with Patti and then reading the diary Patti writes about her visit in the morning. We are so confident leaving the children with Patti that it has made going out even more of a treat. Thank you Patti! (& for always giving me a compliment before I head out!)

To say I am "overwhelmed" is an understatement! What a compliment!! The pleasure is all mine. Seeing young, mum's and dad's having a date night (which they so deserve) makes it all worthwhile.
When my husband and I wanted a night out, (some time ago) without the help and not knowing, who to rely on, we declined? I know the importance of trust and reliability! I love being with little ones and seeing the parents enjoying themselves....makes it so worthwhile.
Thank you so much for you exemplary review. Your boys are refreshing, well behaved and a pleasure to look after.
With four children, aged 3-11, we have only left them with family until recently. A good friend recommend Patti. She really is such a delight for the children, and we trust her completely to look after them and make their time fun and exciting. She really is like a member of our family, without being intrusive. Our children have met her only four times, but each of them look forward to each occasion with genuine excitement. She is greeted by them as if she were a member of the family or a family friend. A real pro, able not only to do her job professionally, but to make it an enjoyable and exciting experience for all our children across a broad range of ages. On our return, we are left with detailed notes of an evening spent with our little ones and the following day we always get an enthusiastic report from them of what they have enjoyed doing with her. Can't recommend her enough... though we like to keep it to ourselves! Xx

Patti Poppins. AKA Patricia Lynch.
Patti has been supporting my family - 3 children aged 9,6 and 4 for nearly 2 years now. I first found out about Patti from childcare.co.uk. From the moment I met Patti on her first visit to my house and her meeting my children ,I knew that she was a natural cater and that my children were in safe hands. I remember first leaving my then 2 year old as I had a hospital appointment and Patti gladly took her to the park and walked around the area as I suggested..
Fast forward 2 years and Patti now feels like a family member!! My children love her company as much as I do too as well her ways: singing, dancing, laughing!! Patti goes that extra mile to assist you and your family. Such as washing up, tidying round, sweeping, cooking. Feeding, taking children to activities and watching them with enthusiasm like you would if it was your own child..
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Patti to any family although I would prefer she stayed anonymous so we didn’t have to share her!!

Natalie... what a glowing reference. I just wanted to "Thank you"
so much, for your wonderful and complimentary comments. I feel
very much at home, with your children and two dogs. Thank you
for your's and daddy's 100% trust. You have no idea, how much I
it means to me.
As a first timer employing a baby sitter for our 3 kids, my wife and I took it upon ourselves to find a baby sitter independently so that we could compare and discuss our findings. In the end, there was no discussion as we had both selected Patti! Her glowing reviews are entirely deserving as our kids absolutely adore her and always look forward to the next time they will see her. She is kind, courteous, adaptable, loving, reliable, trustworthy and a joy for our kids. Patti has sat for us on several occasions now, and she is an absolute gem. As a newbie, I would highly recommend her services. A real star!

"Thank you" for your kind and overwhelming review.. Your children are wonderful, Exemplary manners, well behaved and .I absolutely love being with them. They are fun, energetic, well behaved and a pleasure to be with. I "Thank you" for your 100% trust.
Patti is the most warm, kind and generous lady. She responded almost immediately to my request for help and we were able to set up an initial meeting very quickly. Any family whom Patti helps out can't fail to benefit from her cheerful and experienced approach. The children warmed to her immediately and in fact were so keen to play with her that Patti was kept very busy! It was clear to see how much she enjoyed every moment of her time playing! Children are quite clearly her passion and any family would be lucky to have her helping them.

Hello Helen, I am overwhelmed, at your wonderful "Review"!!
Many thanks and looking forward, to seeing you all again... soon.
It's always a worry when you move to a new area and have to find childcare & to find one that has the whole package. But we have found that in Patricia. She came and met us before having the children and it felt like we had known her for years.
When it came to sit out two boys she walked in and high fived both the boys & they were at ease from then on whizzing around showing her their toys, puzzles and books etc.
Nothing is ever too much and will play hide and seek, read books and play lots of games. She does love a tidy up as well which my husband appreciates (a lot) thank you for everything & the beautiful diary you leave us with stickers the boys are very proud to tell us about the next day! Highly Recommended x

Hello and "Thank You" for your review! The "pleasure" is most certainly all mine! Your boys are adorable to look after and such great fun. I appreciate you taking the time, to provide me with such an excellent review!!
Patti looked after our 4 children recently on the day of our wedding & we couldn't recommend her more highly! From the minute we met her the children adored her & having her with us for our special day she felt more like a very helpful family member than our nanny! She took great care of our children & kept them all happy & very entertained throughout the day. Without Patti there we know for certain that we wouldn't have been able to relax or enjoy the day as much as we did. We wouldn't hesitate to use Patti again & myself & the children would look forward to seeing her should we need to!
She most certainly is Patti Poppins ?.
Mr & Mrs Young xx

Hi and "Thank you" for your exemplary review! I enjoyed being part of your day and seeing you both get married, it has to be the icing on the cake....(excuse the pun)! Your children were adorable and an absolute pleasure to look after. Lots of love to you all.
Many thanks....Pattipoppins. x x x
What a fabulous, caring, lovely lady! Patti has looked after my two children (currently 9 and 11 years old) for over 3 years. She has built up such an amazing relationship with them and they regard her a grandmother rather than a babysitter. She is kind, genuine, fun, and very dependable. My daughter says, 'She is the best babysitter ever'. She is always very interested in my kids' activities and welfare, how their week has been etc and has listened to my little girl playing french horn for hours and been very encouraging. She genuinely loves children and I can't think of a job that she would enjoy more than being a child care provider.
Patti has never let me down. I have been able to work in the evenings knowing that when I get home my kids will be happy and have been cared for like I care for them. She always arrives ahead of time and I know that if I'm delayed returning home there will be no problem, she'll always stay as long as necessary and is happy to do so.
If you're reading Patti's profile I would not hesitate in contacting her for babysitting. There really is no better person to do it.

Wow... what a compliment Amanda. I have enjoyed every moment, of being with your absolute "treasures"! Excellent manners, caring and so loving, they have been a delight to look after and I am sure you and daddy are extremely proud.... as I most certainly am! I am sure we will keep in touch as you will all be very much missed. Lots of love. Patti xx
Patti is fabulous. She's a lovely, friendly, caring, genuine, trustworthy & reliable lady. My 3.5 year old son loves her to bits, as do we. She always arrives on time & loves to see & play with him, before putting him to bed. She's got heaps of experience & is first aid qualified, so we can go out & have a lovely time knowing that he's in safe hands. We would highly recommend her.
Response by Patricia on 05/02/2016:
Just to say a huge "Thank you" for you lovely compliment! You have no idea, of how much I enjoy, spending time, with your "special little boy"!! He is so loving and adorable and how lucky do I feel, that I get to look after your most "treasured possession"! I look forward to seeing you again very soon.
