I can't recommend Caroline highly enough. She's been absolutely perfect for my daughter Rowan. We feel like we struck gold in finding her. She's empathetic, kind, diligent and such a hard worker. She's got neverending ideas in how to entertain the children with her. Rowan adores her. I was always anxious about leaving my children in childcare, but Caroline was so reassuring and kind and gentle with Rowan that it was seemless. I felt like such a weight was lifted off my shoulders when I returned to work. Her playroom is such a lovely, safe space for little ones. I found nurseries too busy and chaotic for a baby/toddler. Caroline has been perfect, she's in regular contact keeping you included in what activities they're doing, she adapted to every ask we had such as sling wearing, was unbelievably patient with my nervousness at leaving and we've never looked back. She's an absolute joy.
