“For over six years of working with “Hopes and Dreams” I cannot have asked for a more helpful team delivering the best babysitting services any of our guests could ever require whilst keeping the children safe, engaged and entertained. I am sure we will continue our relationship with Hopes and Dreams for many more years to come.”

Iain – Head Concierge at Dukes Hotels


“Over the past 3 years I have found the Hopes & Dreams babysitting service to be extremely efficient, flexible and easy to work with. Requests are confirmed swiftly and your babysitters are always greatly received and appreciated by our adult as well as our junior guests. Your service is seamless. Thank you very much ladies.”

Parents

“Our two year old daughter attends hopes and dreams and has been since she’s been 9 months old. She absolutely loves it there and the practitioners are very attentive to her changing needs and really help encourage her development. The curriculum is very dynamic and focuses on the individual needs to each child. They also offer a Babysitting service which is incredibly convenient and since they use the same staff as they have at the nursery they already know your child. It provides me and husband with additional peace of mind.“

“The nanny and babysitting agency has been a god send for our family. They are professional, timely and efficient. They vetted and found a night nanny to help during the first few months following the arrival of our son, which worked out extremely well. Over the years we have made lots of requests for babysitting help and they have always managed to provide a solution we can rely on. This service is excellent and has meant we have been able to enjoy living and working in London with a young family to the full. We can’t thank Hopes and Dreams enough for the quality of staff and the support provided.The nanny and babysitting agency has been a god send for our family.

“We have been signed up to the Hopes and Dreams Nanny and Babysitting Agency since we first registered our daughter at the Nursery school. Throughout the years we have been sent a number of sitters, all of which have been friendly, welcoming and professional. We have always felt extremely comfortable leaving our children with the Hopes and Dreams babysitters and know that they will always take the best care of them. There is the added benefit of our children recognising the sitters from the Nursery school, and it is lovely to form bonds with the sitters outside of this environment. We would highly recommend the agency and hope to use them for years to come!”

Miriam


“The babysitting service has been a great help as it gives us complete peace of mind that our daughter will be in good hands and with someone she is familiar with. The team are reliable and flexible and the service itself is very easy to use.”

Sarah


“The Hopes and Dreams Nanny and Babysitting Agency is a lifesaver. Without it, we just couldn’t function. Their flexibility and reliability is what we value the most. We know that our boy is in safe hands with them.”
