Trish babysat our 6m old son in a hotel while we were at a wedding.
She was brilliant - making us feel instantly totally comfortable upon arrival, communicating clearly throughout (over text and with detailed notes), was proactive in her care (taking him for a long walk & washing all bottles used) and flexible & good natured when we had a slight issue with our taxi coming home.
We couldn't recommend her highly enough and would definitely use her again if circumstances permit.
Trish is everything you could possibly ask for and more. Not only is she very experienced she also obviously loves children. Both these attributes come across in her care of children. She has looked after my baby boy twice and I have felt very comforted knowing that my son is in her care. She is punctual and communicative also. She obviously really enjoys what she does and I wouldn't think twice to work with Trish again.
Trish was super punctual and very swift and pleasant to communicate with. We only had one night in Cheltenham and didn't hang about once she arrived. But I'd very happily work with her again and recommend her.
We’ve had the pleasure of having Tricia care for our kids for the last 12 months. They are 6,4, and 20 month old twins. I can go and never worry about a thing. She can handle any situation with calm and experience! She is completely reliable and her communication is crystal clear. She even keeps me in organised!
We are moving home to the States end of August and I wish I could pack her up and take her with us. She’s so much more than a nanny. She has become a support to me and a dear friend. I am immensely sad to say goodbye to her. So are my kids. You would be lucky to have her in your home!
Trish came to help us beginning last August. We have 4 children under 5 (2 being 14 month old twins). From the moment we met Trish, it was obvious that her expertise and knowledge regarding children is exemplary. She is amazing with all ages and a joy to have in our home. Having found her has literally saved me.
We moved here from the US with 4 small children and no family support, I was drowning. Enter Trish - she is a treasure!! Anyone would be lucky to have her care for their children. My babies adore her. She always goes above and beyond my expectations.
I found Patricia via the childcare.co.uk website and she has been helping me with my two boys (6 months & 3 years) for the last few months. Tricia is always punctual, happy to roll with as much or as little as I want to do with the boys. Either being my parental side-kick on a farm or playground trip or taking the lead whilst I take a afternoon nap in preparation for the night ahead. She's been happy to help prep meals, iron, tidy-up etc without prompting, and has been wonderful flexible to my husband's shift pattern, helping me with bath/bedtime on occasions and an occasion weekend date. Tricia has been the first person I've felt able to leave my youngest with, giving me and hubby some valuable time out together in an evening. Although I've never used a nanny or similar service before, I've been very happy and impressed with Tricia and hope that she will be able to continue to part of my family for many years to come.
Trish has been such a great 'find' in terms of her devotion to the babies. She has a balanced approach, on the one hand being deeply professional aswell as having such a loving manner with our five months old twins. She easily juggles the task of simultaneously caring for two needy babies and they clearly enjoy her calm, secure approach. She is a joy to be around and we feel very lucky to have her in our lives as new parents.
Trish has been with us 2 days a week since I had to return to work when our daughter was 3 months old. She has been a real rock to the whole family, and with her extensive experience an ideal person to bounce ideas and questions off when we are lacking in certainty. She has helped with starting solids, and kept up the routine we were putting in place, whilst gently giving advice and guidance during various transition phases as our daughter has grown.
She is now 10 months and is visibly excited (and vocal!) when Trish arrives. They obviously have a great time together and a wonderful bond. Various activities include walks, popping to the shops, attending monkey music classes and swimming together. A real benefit for us is how Trish also takes great care of our dog when she is here, who also loves their days together.
Trish is now starting to help with some increasingly required discipline as our daughter cheekily is feeling out boundaries. Whilst being utterly professional and trustworthy, Trish clearly also cares deeply about our little girl, her happiness and welfare. We could not ask for more.
Trish worked for us for four weeks in February and March 2017, since our nanny was recovering from an operation. From the first conversation with Trish, we were confident to leave the children in her care, and she met our expectations. We were absolutely delighted.
Trish was looking after our two children; a 3.5yr old with some additional needs and a 2yr old. She was willing to both fit in to the children’s existing routine of pre-school, groups and swimming etc, and to lead in drawing and craft activities.
The children took to Trish immediately, indeed the youngest now calls me Trish sometimes; I’m delighted, it’s a sign that Trish was immediately part of the family! Trish was a very calm presence; she took interest in both children and steered their learning of new skills. For example, the oldest is now experimenting with colouring in drawings a lot more.
Trish has a practical, can do attitude, she’s punctual, gives feedback and is completely trustworthy. She is also very flexible, for example – she was able to do some babysitting for us too. We would recommend her!
Patrica looked after my 9month old baby while I attended a job interview. I was extremely apprehensive about leaving my baby with anyone other than my family. As soon as I meet patrica I felt at ease and comfortable with her caring for my daughter, patrica has a natural calm caring way about her that is very transparent upon meeting her and my daughter warmed to having patrica care for her straight away, she wasn't fased by my 8month old puppy in tow either and even brought treats for him! . I have since used patrica again and would not use anyone else. If you want a competent caring kind person who is reliable and supportive then look no further. I moved to Cheltenham not knowing anyone and patrica has been a God send I know I can call her anytime and she will be able to help if she can even at short notice. Highly recommended
