Sylvia started taking care of our little boy when he was 3 months old. We were originally only looking for short-term nanny before he could start nursery, but Sylvia was so wonderful that she stayed with us much longer. We felt really blessed to have found her: Sylvia is a sweet, caring, experienced and super qualified nanny. She is always mindful of our boy's development, thinks of new places he could explore, new things he could learn, new activities he could try or foods he could taste. She is very creative and always comes up with new activities for him: they go to playgroups, libraries, city farms, messy play and museums together, and thanks to Sylvia, our boy is now a big fan of music and books. Moreover, she treats our boy as if he was her own and we trust her completely, he couldn't be in a sweeter, safer pair of hands. I can't recommend her highly enough!

Thank you Marie. It's been a pleasure to see Nael's development and progress he made during his first year which is such a crucial time for a baby. I hope he enjoyed all our experiences and outings. I wish him a wonderful time, teachers and friends in a nursery :)

Sylvia was our nanny for after we moved back from some time abroad. It was quite a big transition for our 4 year old daughter but Sylvia was lovely, she took care of our daughter really well. Our daughter always felt happy and comfortable with her and that was really important to us.

Sylvia is excellent at creative play and it was always quite fun to come home to see what craft they had been up to. Sylvia is a parent herself and clearly likes children a lot and she was able to engage with our daughter and keep her busy. It was fantastic to see that our daughter genuinely was learning from what they were doing together. Sylvia is proactive in finding local things that are going on in the area for kids. She was confident and capable in taking our daughter out and she kept us updated on their adventures with some great pictures.

Sylvia is a lovely person and easy to communicate with. Our daughter is heading off to school this autumn but we will stay in touch with Sylvia and we would happily use her as an occasional babysitter. All in all we can definitely recommend Sylvia as a fantastic nanny!

Thank you so much. It was great to do crafts, baking, gardening, to sing, dance, even do zumba for children together, go to libraries, museums, parks, playgroups and playgrounds, play games, do picnics and puzzles, involve in imaginary play, build dens and trains, explore and observe nature and enjoy activities with your daughter. She's a sensitive, articulate girl with attention to detail who loves reading books and grew in confidence of doing crafts, colouring and writing on her own. I wish her to have loving, caring teachers and friends at her new school.

Sylvia was our regular part-time nanny for the last year. She is a lovely, warm, dependable person who is great at creative play. She regularly took our son to nearby green spaces, the library and classes, and constantly sang and read to him. I was particularly impressed with her ability to create interesting new activities and imaginary play with our toys or existing household items, stimulating and entertaining our son. Most of all, we felt she treated our son as it he were her own. We reluctantly parted ways with her recently to send our son to nursery but wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to another family.
