Chelsie has looked after our first little girl whose now 4, for about 2 years now. I admit I am a nervous, first time parent and leaving R with someone I didn’t know terrified me!

I’ve always felt at ease with Chelsie, she’s more like family than a childcarer to us now and has made a potentially difficult time for us much easier. We are lucky enough to have her helping with our new addition in the summer too! I don’t know how she does it but I hope to have her in our lives for the foreseeable future!

100% recommendation from us!

We simply love Chelsie and we think you will, too, I found Chelsie here on Childcare.co.uk, she was one of a few professionals I messaged on the site and she really stood out from the rest.

Chelsie visited us, free of charge, for an informal meet and greet, and she met our two-year-old girl. They immediately hit it off. And we felt extremely comfortable having grilled her with a few tough questions. The truth is, though, we knew within a few minutes that she was perfect for us.

She’s experinced, friendly, confident and extremely competent. We can’t recommend her highky enough.

Chelsie comes to our house to play with our daughter and sorts bed time for us, too.

Now we get a date night each month - some really important time together - and are happy knowing the little one is safe and sound.

If you’re looking for childcare, look no further than Chelsie. She is amazing,

Chelsie babysits for our 2 year old son, she is always on time and very polite. We feel very comfortable and can relax on an evening out knowing Chelsie is looking after our son. Recently our son had been playing up at bedtime, Chelsie very kindly gave us tips on how to manage the bedtime routine (and it worked!) miracle worker! I can’t recommend her enough, we will continue to use Chelsie’s babysitting service.

Chelsie is very serious a baby-sitter and very professional in childminding. She really makes parent feel confident and safe when they leave the baby with her. I recommend her and my baby also ! Thank you Chelsie for what you've done for us.

Thank you so much Chelsie, you have given us the boost we needed to get our family back on track! Your advice was so helpful in understanding Alice's communication.

p.s. The girls loved Chelsie, so we had to steal her for babysitting too!
