Issy looked after our 5 year old for a year as our after school nanny . She was excellent . She had our very reluctant 5 year old reading and engaging with numbers and phonics using a host of fun games so he didn't even realise he was learning. When looked after him for whole days she would take him on day trips and frequently took him out to parks , libraries and museums . She also did lots of creative play with him - including making salt dough animals, baking and making things out of egg boxes and cardboard!
Aside from looking after our son her duties with us included picking him up from school, preparing healthy meals, light housework (she is immaculately clean), giving him his bath and getting him ready for bed. She was very flexible and always willing to help us out , sometimes at very short notice .
She is extremely experienced, having also worked with scouts as well as a nanny for many years. She recently got a first in her childcare degree from a great university - and this all comes across in the way she approaches her role as a nanny.
Her creative energy and inventiveness will be missed - any family who employs her will be lucky to have her !
Izzy was after-school nanny to our 3 children, aged 4, 9 and 11 for a year. She was fantastic - our kids loved her and 2 years later they still ask about her. She engaged them in fun activities after school, played games, read with them - the TV was never on and they really flourished in her care. She is very competent, mature and completely trustworthy. She communicates well and is a pleasure to have around. I would not hesitate to reemploy her and anyone who does employ her will have found a treasure. We have worked with 8 after-school nannies over the years and Izzy was outstanding at her job.
