"We have now arrived back from holiday and had a wonderful time. Josephine was brilliant, it was the first time we'd ever used a nanny or left Dalton (2 months old) with anyone other than family and she was great. She made notes on what she had done with him during the day regarding how much he'd eaten or slept and was very quick to pick up on his likes and dislikes. He had previously been diagnosed with clicky hips and is currently in a harness we emailed her before arriving explaining it all to her and she took it upon herself to read up about his condition.

If we returned to alpe d'huez we would without doubt use her again and will gladly write her a reference for anyone else wishing to use her services.

Thank you for all your help finding childcare and making our holiday possible.

Kind regards
