Debbie looked after my 9 month old son for a few months while I tried out going back to work.
She is a wonderfully caring person, and my son was always happy to be left with her. Among her other strengths was her punctuality – she is extremely reliable and always arrived early, taking the stress out of me getting out of the house in time. I recently made the difficult decision to stop working altogether so now can be home with my son and no longer require childcare – however, I’m sure we will be in contact with Debbie again for babysitting.
My son’s safety and care were always a priority for Debbie and he was very well looked after. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her as a nanny – I’m sure your child/children would love being around her too.
Debs looked after our Son from when he was 3 months old up until he was about 9 months on an adhoc basis as we have our own company and so work varied days and hours.
It was a real wrench for us leaving him when he was so young but both my husband and I felt really happy and totally at ease that we left him with Debs, we never worried about him as she just seemed to know what he wanted (just like a Mum would)
She is kind, caring and absolutely loves him and he loves her as well, (even now she still comes to visit him and he is always so happy to see her) as they formed such a strong bond, Debs has now become more like an Auntie than a Nanny, so she is more like one of the family which is a lovely feeling to have with someone like this that is looking after your little one!
Unfortunately my job meant that I am now working away for a few months and we have all moved away temporarily and we couldnt convince Debs to do a 200 mile round trip everyday to look after him! But as soon as I am back in the area I would have no hesitation using her again if she was avail ble.
She always arrived on time and took him out of loads of walks and kept him entertained, fed watered etc. I always felt that she did the job because she loves children not just for the money and that really showed in the caring of our little one.
I would have no hesitation in recommending her for any age group either.
