What our clients are saying

Having seen Alex interacting with young children (aged 3 and 4) in a school setting it is obvious she loves her work and is fabulous with them. It's clearly something she is passionate about. Would highly recommend her.

Alex has regularly cared for my baby boy Riley. She is simply amazing! Riley is always so excited to see her, he goes to her without hesitation and is always laughing with her. Alex clearly has such a passion and joy when working with children, she makes them feel so special and loved. She is very knowledgeable and creates routine, structure and discipline, which is important to make small kids feel safe and secure. I would not hesitate to recommend Alex to anyone.

Alex lived with us for circa 6 months in Australia. She did a great job with our daughter and will be missed by both our daughter and us. She is able to establish great routines, discipline in a firm but fair way, come up with some really creative ways to entertain toddlers and create a sense of fun.

Alex is absolutely amazing. She has looked after all three of my children ages ranging from ages 9 1/2 months to 7 years old. She was fantastic with my 9 1/2-month-old. Kept him entertained and extremely happy.
She had my 6-year-old daughter laughing like the mad hatter and teaching her yoga moves which my daughter thought was incredible and can't stop talking about it!
Next brings me to my son. He has autism low functioning and does not take to new people lightly. He took to Alex straight away. Held her hand, he has never let a new person touch him let alone touch them. Alex was very gentle with him and was able to pick his interests and get him talking as best of his ability about those things. He was very calm and happy and enjoyed Alex's company.
She kept my children happy and entertained, she made sure that they felt safe and comfortable with her. Thank you, Alex, for everything you have done for myself and my children. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED she is amazing!!!!

Alex helped care for our young daughter for 6 months. We live in Qatar and Alex was happy to fly out and look after our daughter whilst mummy and daddy went back to work. We found Alex to be professional, extremely caring and passionate about her job. It gave us peace of mind that Alex is a trained maternity nurse and since Alex - who is a trained sleep trainer - has also given us advice about how best our little one can gain more sleep. Thank you for all your help Alex and good luck with the future

My one year old son Alfie was extremely comfortable with Alex when she babysat for us. She was confident, happy, sociable and took into account everything I asked of her when it came to taking care of him. I will use her services again in the future for sure!

I met Alex in 2012 and she was already heavily involved in nannying. As a previous nanny myself, I have followed her journey of creating and growing The Mothership and I cannot express how proud and amazed I am at what she has achieved.

Her hard work, passion, and dreamer nature helped her become the businesswoman she is today.
