Caring, warm and invaluable support for our family

Louisa was our nanny for six months from August '21 to March '22. During this time she looked after our three children; two boys age 8 and 10 years, and our daughter age 19 months at the time of leaving. She is very loving, warm and affectionate and our children became close to her while she was with us.

Lou had most contact with our baby daughter as the boys were at school and after school clubs a lot of the time. Lou was very competent and was able to settle her to sleep and built a close relationship with her. Lots of people would come up to me and comment on how great she was with our baby when they saw Louisa out with her.

Lou would arrange playdates, baby groups and outings and made friends with local nannies who would sometimes come to our house or go out on trips together. Even our boys, who are at the age where they don’t want babysitters or childminders and were initially reluctant to have any kind of childcare, warmed to her once she had settled in and they still ask after her now.

On a personal level, she is very friendly and sweet and I enjoyed having her in the house even when myself and my husband were working from home. She was very adaptable to us working from home more after Covid and we were a good team unit, sometimes sharing roles when we were both in the house. We never felt awkward when we were all home together and Lou became like a member of our family.

Louisa is also a fantastic and enthusiastic cook and took over batch cooking nutritious meals for the family and healthy snacks for the kids, making things a lot easier for us to manage when I was working. She planned and cooked a variety of dishes. When our children had Covid and she couldn't look after them, she cooked from her house and dropped supplies off to help out.

She was very trustworthy and honest about spending etc. I would trust her with our shopping and managing expenses.

I would be happy to recommend her!
