Thank you. So glad your happy.

Tracy has been taking care of my son on a Tuesday for over a year now. Unfortunately this will soon come to an end because he will be starting school in September. He enjoys his time with Tracy enormously. She takes him to farms, day trips, shopping, music clubs, soft play areas, and all manner of out door activities. She has broadened the scope of his activities and he has benefited enormously from this.

From my point of view Tracy is always reliable, punctual and flexible.

We wish her luck with her future positions.

Thank you for leaving a review. I enjoyed my time so much with your sweet child. He will always have a special place in my heart. Quickest 18 months ever. Hope he's settling into school like.

Tracy has been with us since the new year and it couldn't have worked out better. The boys (age 9 and 5) adore her she is great with both of them. My little girl (8 months) is completely thriving and that is a lot thanks to Tracy. Tracy is brilliant with all three, I know when I go off to work they are undoubtedly in safe hands. All three of mine have very different needs and she takes it all in her stride. They are always out and about doing fun things. I would definitely recommend Tracy, we feel very lucky to have found her.

Tracy has been absolutely amazing with my 15 month old.
He has never been happy around other people unless I'm there, but he took to tracy straight away and he really came out of his shell with her.
I believe she has given him a confidence to be around others, and helped him develop and learn songs, numbers and colours.
She always takes him out on interesting trips, and if they are in the house she plays with him and gives him 110% attention, love and care.
She has also filled a diary out every day of his day which has been a pleasure to read, and been a comfort to me to know what he's been doing, eating and his mood etc.
Not only is she loving and compassionate but also very professional and goes the extra mile to be the best nanny possible.

Thank you so much. You've a special little man there. So sorry we didn't have longer together.

Really happy with the service provided by Tracy and the kids love her. She makes sure they get out on a daily basis and encourages them to develop, teaching them but in an enjoyable creative way. She had been a life saver in terms of having my sons bottles sterilised and ready for when we get home as well as both children bathed and ready for bed, making getting home from work far less stressful, not to mention the children's ironing and all our washing sorted. Would definitely recommend.
