Snippets from Wietske’s references
“We have absolutely loved our nanny, Wiets. She is the most beautiful and caring women and we will be so sad to say goodbye to her. We wish we could take her home with us! Oliver has had the best holiday thanks to her, she really exceeded our expectations”
” Our babysit Wietske took care of our children when they were 8 and 9 years old. Wietske is very reliable and communicative, also towards our girls. Mostly she came to our place in the evening hours. She used to play board games and make puzzles with our children. Most important is that we could count on her and that she is a very joyful, trustworthy and kind hearted person. ”
