"Claire is wonderful with our 3 children aged 6, 4 and 2. She has a calm manner but is very engaging. She always arrives armed with toys and activities suitable for different ages which keeps the children happy all day. She has successfully navigated our kids to and from ski school, on and off buses and has kept them warm, dry, happy and well fed throughout :)"

"Claire looked after our 2 x 2.5 year olds over Feb half term. She is brilliant. Totally unflappable and they loved her. Claire was immensely easy to deal with. We had various older children in need of a day off during the week and Claire was more than happy to take them under her wing too. Happy to be contacted if needed. "

"We hired Claire for a few days during our summer holiday. She always arrived on time, with a day of activities planned for the kids and a huge smile. The children loved spending their day with Claire and enjoyed all the activities including learning a bit of the local language. Claire was always flexible and happy to accommodate days and times depending on weather etc. I would happily recommend Claire for her child care services and would definitely contact her again if we were in the area.

Many thanks
