Worked with children before, if yes what ages were they? Yes, 3 months old

Her story: Masleen is a Christian who worked for a family full time for two years. The family had 3 children aged 10, 4 and 2. Masleen looked after the little one and helped in the house with cleaning and laundry. Then the family no longer needed a full time domestic and now they still call her every now and then to clean their house. She has an Au Pair and CPR course and her two children are both grown up and living in Zimbabwe. She has one grandchild and was the first lady ever to bring a pen and paper to our course to make notes. One Stop Domestic found work for her looking after a 3 months old baby. Unfortunately the family had to move but gave her a very nice reference. Masleen currently works as a nurse but is off every Thursday and looking for Thursday work in the Cape Town area.

References: Yes, two

What the reference saidMasleen has been working for us for two years full time. She helped to look after our smallest one a lot but also played with the other two. She cleaned and took care of our laundry. For the children she prepared basic meals. Her ironing is very good. Then the children grew up and we now only call her to clean our house when we need her which is about once in two weeks. Masleen is always puctual and is a very happy person with a great attitude. She is absolutely honest and her English is fantastic. I can recommend her to anyone.

We got Masleen from One Stop Domestic. She was with us for about 6 months and cleaning our small flat as well as looking after my 3 year old baby boy 3 days/week. We were very fond of her. She was both committed and responsible as well as hard working. We had to move and that's the only reason she no longer works for us. I was often at home when she cared for the little one but at times out of the house as well. She was wonderful with him and followed all my instructions well. I can certainly recommend her for both cleaning and child minding.

My observationMasleen has experience with both children and elderly. Her own children are grown up. On weekends she plays the guitar at her church and describes herself as a friendly person who is passionate about children.

Her storyGenevieve worked for a family for 18 months. When she started to work for them their baby was 2 months old and she was in daytime alone with the baby at home. Both parents worked. When the boy went to a full time creche, they no longer needed Genevieve. She then worked for a family for 3 months until they could no longer afford her. Their baby was a newborn when Genevieve started to work there and she took care of the baby many mornings when the mother went to the gym or shops. We have placed her in the meantime and now she is still looking for the above day(s).

References: Yes, two

What the reference saidGenevieve worked for us for 18 months. I can strongly recommend her as a child minder. She looked after our boy from when he was 2 months old, cleaned our house and did the ironing. She was very trustworthy and loving towards our boy. She was always flexible if she needed to come in earlier or stay later. It was a privilege to have her as a part of our family. She had a positive influence on our son's development. She took instructions easily but also made good decisions on her own and I can recommend her to any family with children. Our boy now went to creche and we could no longer afford her.

Genevieve worked for us for 6 months. Our only child was a newborn then. She always watched the baby when I went out in the mornings to do shopping etc.. and was very good with our baby. We were also happy with her cleaning and ironing and had no problems with her whatsoever. I work from home and we could unfortunately no longer afford her, otherwise she would still be working for us.

Our observationGenevieve says she is passionate about children, she likes cleaning and on weekends she goes to church or to the beach with her husband and child.

Her story: Patricia is a Christian who worked for 4 years as a char for a family with two children. They were 7 and 2 years old when she started to work for them.  Then they moved to Australia and Patricia doesn’t have a reference from then.  She says if someone teaches her how to cook she is willing to cook for her new family. For the last 3 years she works for the same family every Tuesday but since one day is too little income she is looking for full time work.  That employer gave her a very nice testimonial. In the meantime we placed her during the week and now she is still looking for Saturday work.

References: Yes, two

What the reference said: Patricia has been working for me once a week for 3 years now. She is totally reliable and honest and every time locks up our house properly before she leaves.  She is intelligent, hard working and uses her initiative. Everyone in the family likes her, also our cat.  If she can’t come she let’s me know and always adds that little extra touch to my house.  In the 3 years she has also helped out my friends and neighbors and they were equally happy with her. I can recommend her to anyone.

Patricia was given to us by One Stop Domestic. She was our nanny for our daughter from when she was only 3 months old. She also cleaned the house sometimes and I must say she irons very well. We no longer need Patricia's service and hope One Stop Domestic will be able to find her a cleaning and nanny position soon.

Our observation: Patricia cleans thoroughly and uses her own initiative. Her favorite tasks are ironing and child minding. She immediately made contact with my toddler and started to play with him.  She is naturally good with children and has three children of her own who were born between 2000 and 2011.

References: Yes, two

What the reference said: Constance has been with us twice a week since 2012.  Her work includes cleaning as well as taking care of our laundry. She is absolutely trustworthy, you can give her your house keys or alarm code. I am also impressed by how hard working she is. Constance has the right attitude, her work is important to her. She is not demanding at all and would fit in anywhere.  I can truly recommend her and anyone can contact me about a reference for her.

Constance worked for us for about 8 days as a stand in domestic. She got on with the job and used her own initiative. She is hard working and reliable as well as honest.

Our observation: In her free time Constance likes to play with her children.  She says she likes a clean house and likes to communicate. She is an experienced cleaning lady who - after an initial introduction - will be able to go on without supervision.

They got along well and the way she treated our children was also nice to me.  She is a very good lady, kind and reliable and I can recommend her to anyone.

Nodia was a stand in domestic for 3 weeks for our lady on leave. After an initial introduction she went on herself and I was satisfied with her work.
