Suzie babysat my son who is 7 and daughter 3 . They straight away warmed up to her to my surprise .Even my daughter who is usually quite shy and takes a while before warming up to people . We had a nice chat and I felt at easy straight away with her . I will definitely book Suzie again .

Linda is wonderful. She looks after my son for whole days on a regular basis- he loves her and really looks forward to it. When he hears her car on the drive he runs down to meet her which is testimony enough! She does all sorts of lovely things with him, can be firm with him when needed and takes a genuine interest in him. Linda has been totally reliable and has been flexible when I have been less organised than her! I would thoroughly recommend her to any family.

Suzie was great - she rang beforehand just to check timings etc still as planned. She arrived exactly on time. As it was her first time child sitting for me, I had allowed an extra few minutes to go through everything with her - she made me feel very at ease and just completely got on with things in a cheery and positive manner. I would definitely recommend Suzie and book her again.
