Caroline looked after our two children (5&7) for two days while we’re were on holidays in the Dordogne. She was extremely competent and knowledgeable, and was also really friendly. Our kids loved having her over to our holiday house while we went for two adult day trips. She brought along plenty of age appropriate games and crafts, and the children were delighted to have something new to do.
Overall I think Caroline was lovely and perfect for the job. I would highly recommend her to families needing childminding in the Dordogne!
Thank you Caroline!
Caroline has babysat and proxy parented for us countless times over the last 11 years. She was also maternity nanny to our youngest (now aged 10). She is incredibly professional and loving at the same time and the children (even though we now have a teenager) love nothing more than spending time with her. She has been a constant in our lives and anyone else who is able to make her a constant in theirs is incredibly lucky.
Caroline watched our little boy for the day while my wife and I attended a wedding and she was fantastic. As we were on holiday and didn’t have much in the way of toys she came with a box full for Henry to play with, she also brought her son along and for the remainder of our holiday he kept asking when he was going to see them again. She was very flexible and was happy to stay longer than we had originally planned and kept Henry busy with a trip to the park, swimming and painting. We would highly recommend Caroline and will use her again if we are ever back in the area.
As a working single mum I needed someone to help with childcare and Caroline was contacted. Caroline had my son from15 months – 4 1/2yrs..
my son loves going to Caroline’s he is always kept busy with activities and is always given wonderful home cooked food. Also Caroline speaks French with him which has given him an advantage when he started school and did understand what he was being asked. Caroline is a very loyal, understanding, helpful, compassionate, great listener and advice giver. Caroline helped me with my sons potty training and helped me to work out he had a dairy allergy which now he has no dairy he is really happy. nothing is ever too much trouble for Caroline.
I would have no hesitation is recommending Caroline to anyone.
I have been using Caroline for many years now and wouldn’t change a thing. Caroline has been marvelous with all my 3 children, very reliable and always so much understanding. The children always came back with something that they created, made or invented. They absolutely love going and having fun. Caroline is fair and her precious experience and support with our Children is priceless.
Caroline’s breastfeeding advice was invaluable to me and without it I may have stopped altogether. Caroline is professional, caring, understanding and experienced.
Caroline has looked after my 4yr old and 10 month old without issue, the 4 year old enjoyed it so much he asked when he could go again! Am sure my 10 month old would have no trouble going again either.
