Thought a babysitting job didn’t need background checks.
Whether it is a day or a month or a year. I expect a nanny, babysitter or childminder to want to have more care as I was trusting an individual with my child but you thought you didn’t have to show that.
Very unprofessional tone, wouldn’t recommend.

Sandra helped my family out massively during the summer - child-minders were back at work but schools were still out and she took great care of our 10 year old daughter during the "summer term". It meant my wife and I could get back to work and our daughter had 2 days with someone other than mum & dad to talk to. Sandra was interested and interesting, very patient and formed a good bond with our girl. We stay in touch even though the assignment is over and we are very happy to do so! Thanks a million Sandra!

Thank you so much Al for your kind words... I was thrilled when you chose me to keep your daughter company and guide her with her school work, I could not have imagined that I would have grown to love being at your home, feeling so comfortable in such a short space of time! As you say, we bonded very quickly and I could also never have imagined that testing spellings and times tables, or even cooking together could have been such fun! She is truly an adorable child. Tuesdays and Wednesdays became really important to me as we came out of lockdown - I looked forward to working with you all so much. It was an absolute pleasure. You are such a lovely family and I sincerely do hope that we can stay in touch in the future.
My very best wishes to you all.
Sandra.

It is my pleasure to recommend Sandra as a childcare provider. She has cared for my two children (aged 7 and 4) since January 2019. During this time, I have come to know Sandra quite well and she has always demonstrated patience and understanding. I trust her with my children completely. Some people just have a way with children and Sandra is definitely one of them!

Sandra has shown herself to be extremely reliable, punctual, experienced, and considerate. Perhaps even more importantly, she is also very thoughtful, kind, and genuinely invested in caring for the children. In her capacity as our nanny, Sandra helped care for the children during after-school hours, providing them with snacks, making dinners, and helping them with their homework, as well as playing all sorts of games and outdoor activities with them. She has shown a strong capacity for structuring time well, but also with flexibility. While our family circumstances changed and we no longer require a nanny, Sandra still babysits for the children on occasion and they are always excited to see her.

Sandra is a very friendly, patient, and trustworthy person. I feel fortunate to have met her and had her care for my children so well. I warmly recommend her to you.

Thank you so much Erin, such a lovely review, it always has been and still is my pleasure to know you all. I have extremely fond memories of your whole family.

Sandra has only worked for us for a short time but that was due to our family circumstances changing.
She spent a lot of time with my boys before starting and got to know them very well. My youngest has autism and he took to her straight away. She is firm but fair and her love for children shines through.
I would highly recommend her and if our circumstances change I wouldn't hesitate to contact her again.

Debbie, thank you so much for your lovely review, it was my pleasure to get to know you all and I am always happy to step in anytime you may need me for anything! Take care, Sandra.

Sandra is a very experienced kind and sensitive nanny. She began caring for my daughter this year, when she was 10 months old and has completely transformed our lives. When we met her our little girl was not sleeping and was very difficult to settle. We had no routine because no two days had ever been the same and she had never slept in a predictable way. She had had a history of reflux and had never slept more than two hours at a time at night. I was exhausted and desperate and in 4 weeks our daughter began sleeping through the night!

Sandra established a daytime routine and analysed the situation explaining that Avani was overtired and needed to catch up on her sleep before she could rest easily. She helped her get comfortable in her cot and never let her cry. She is knowledgeable about all aspects of childcare including menu preparation, routine establishment and educational and psychological development. My little girl also genuinely loves this woman and has bonded to her like a member of the family. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Feel free to contact me for any more details!
Nicole
