Katie nannies for my three boys for 5 years. She started when my youngest was 10 months old, until when my oldest was 12. Katie is very well-organised and is good at encouraging the children to be, too. She is great at coming up with new and fun ideas either for school holiday outings or for wet-weather play at home.
The children very much enjoyed having Katie as their Nanny. She was proactive in finding activities and classes for them and adaptable to changing home tasks and situations. She tidied up with them which is always a bonus and walked the dog when I was away. She is good at the pretending games they like to play. I had complete confidence when leaving the children for the day, that they would be well looked after and occupied with interesting activities.
Although I havnt actually used Katie to officially babysit for my children, I personally know Katie and my children never leave her alone! She’s fantastic with all 5 of them, I have a child with disabilities and Katie offered some restbite over night to give me a break, I don’t normally like to leave him with many people but I knew my son would be well cared for with Katie. I can’t recommend katie highly enough.
I was so incredibly lucky to find Katie; within minutes of her arrival to meet me and my little girl (then 4) I knew she was precisely what I needed to help with my long days at work. She has fitted seamlessly into our household and I trust her implicitly. She is wonderful with my little girl and does precisely as I ask every day; I often come home to a gorgeously organised playroom, a well fed, bathed and happy little girl ready for bed. I honestly don't know what I would do without her. She's dealt with many things I've overlooked (forgetting project day), bought shopping for me if I had nothing in, driving my little girl to her Granny's house, and basically been an immense help for a single working mother. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.
I found Katie through Childcare, and after an initial meeting we knew Katie would be the perfect babysitter to look after our little 6 month old girl. She is extremely friendly, always arrives on time and was immediately confident with our daughter. We wanted someone who we not only trusted explicitly but someone we also got on with, we have definitely found this with Katie!
Could not recommend her highly enough, she always responds to my late night texts asking for a babysitter the next night, constantly puts me at ease when my daughter is left with her with message updates and I'm beginning to question whether my daughter actually prefers her to me!
I have a three year old, Toby, and needed a babysitter over the weekend. Katie was very helpful and flexible as i wasnt sure how long i would be gone for. She initially came around to meet Toby and they got on great.Katie was very pleasant and friendly, and arrived in good time. Toby really enjoyed Katie looking after him, and any time i need a babysitter in the future I will definitely being using Katie. Fantastic.
We found Katie at short notice through this site. One visit to meet the kids and us beforehand and we knew Katie would be a great solution to our child minding needs over the summer. Both kids have a great rapport with Katie and she has been flexible in her hours and also what she does with them every day. We have no qualms when Katie takes them on trips out and she finds something different every day to occupy them. Whenever she leaves the seven year old is always asking when Katie is coming back again.
We thoroughly recommend Katie to provide child care.

Thank you =)
It is with great pleasure that I recommend Katie as a babysitter/ nanny. She watched our 2 boys (ages 3 and 7) regularly every week for nearly a year and it was a joy to have her.
Katie always came to our home on time, cheerful and ready to engage the children with play, reading and enriching activities. She also supervised our older son's homework. She is intelligent, kind and a great listener. We have moved house to Wiltshire and really miss her. Our kids loved Katie and always looked forward to spending time with her. That said, she always followed our directions in regard to the children (bedtimes, food, etc.) and they respected her as an authority figure.
Besides a natural affinity toward child care, Katie holds BTEC qualifications in child care and is a certified First Aider. By hiring Katie, you can be assured that you won't get a youngster who lounges around watching TV while your kids fend for themselves. She is fun and really lovely, and any family that hires her has very fortunate children indeed.
