We made a profile on childcare.co.uk to find a babysitter for our 1 year old girl and had many childminders and nannies message us with offers and details, however no one “clicked” for us.
I came across Annmarie’s page and liked everything I’ve read so we decided to invite her to our home to meet her and see how our girl will react around her.
She was so lovely from the moment she stepped in the house and we both had a very good feeling about her. She babysat for us a few times now, mainly in the evenings when our little one is asleep.
She always kept me updated with texts and photos and was very kind from the beginning.
We will 100% keep her as our occasional babysitter x
100% recommend her and would give her more than 5 stars.
First time I have ever left my kids with a babysitter. I have a 6yr old and 16month old
AnneMarie was loves by them and me! from the minute she walked through the door! Very kind and gentle, helped my 6yr old with her homework, kids were at ease with her, after I left Annemarie got my 16month old down for a nap no problems, no tears then sent me a text which totally relaxed me and put me to ease.
Annemarie was absolutely lovely and biggest thing of all my kids adored her and my oldest told me she didn’t even want to leave her side and go to her room for even a second!
Totally recommend to absolutely everyone out there needing a babysitter.
Ann has been working with us since June 2015 and looked after my 2 little girls. She easily adapted to fit to the needs our family and I was not worried at work when the girls were with Ann. She would regularly update me with the activities of my little one and made sure she had something to eat as my little one has been fussy eater at times. She also does the school runs for my 6 yr old girl and facilitated activities like tennis. Girls also enjoyed the occasional company of Ann's little son who I think has helped them to bond more with Ann.
After I got a higher training job, I started doing on calls for which Ann has been able to provide cover. She also did occasional night babysitting for my girls when I did night oncalls. She would also help to pick up girls from school and nursery when I was stuck at work.
Unfortunately, we need to let go Ann due to our change in circumstances. I know for sure that my girls would terribly miss her and I'm not sure whether I could find someone else equivalent to Ann with any ease!
Annmarie has been with us since February 2015. She has fitted in well with our family right from the start. We have found her to be trustworthy, reliable, endlessly patient with our three-year-old daughter and a calming, positive influence on us all! We also have a three-month-old son - Annmarie is more than competent at dealing with all aspects of his care and engages with him in an affectionate and gentle way. She is extremely well organised and adept at multitasking, so has no trouble taking care of both children at the same time, despite their often competing needs and demands.
The fact that Annmarie's son is of a similar age to our daughter is a bonus, as she is used to interacting with toddlers and understands the challenges they present. She deals with our daughter's negative behaviour calmly but firmly, and uses mainly positive reinforcement.
Annmarie is most sensitive to our needs and wishes as a family and is able to act on her own initiative where appropriate. Our daughter loves spending time with her and looks forward to seeing her every week.
We hope Annmarie will stay with our family for a long time to come!

Thank you so much for this fabulous review. I hope to be with you for a long time. Your such a lovely family and so thankful you found me.
Lots of love
This nanny is one not to be missed. as soon as she walked up our garden path we had a positive feeling about her. She has a very warm personality, engaged immediately with our sometimes shy and awkward boys and has great experience professionally and via family of looking after children and developing a positive and nurturing relationship with them. I would have no hesitation in highly recommending her.
