Even after not having our beloved Shada around for 2 months, my daughter still looks at the letter S and says that it is “S for Shada”. It is so hard to trust someone but with Shada I had no difficulties in leaving my daughter from the minute I saw her. She is overly qualified but also very down to earth. We can’t wait to have her in our lives again. (2/2)
My 2 year old daughter grew a very strong relationship with Shada as soon as they met. The moment Shada introduced herself to us, we thought that she was going to be a perfect match to our very active and slightly naughty daughter. Shada has a lovely and bubbly personality, she not only happily and actively play with our little one but also did arts & crafts, alphabet, numbers and puzzles to encourage our daughter’s learning.

A massive thank you to the beacon of all knowledge that is Shada! I booked in for a one off call as I have a few kinks that need ironing out with my admin & business plans. Shada was calm & patient when listening to me, i’m an absolute flaffer! She gave me a range of advice from increasing my hourly rate, how to invoice, declining a parent when its clear we aren’t a match & improving my booking process. Shada has really calmed my mind & given me the confidence to move forward with ease, I will definitely be using her nanny consultancy services again in the future.
Shada took time to get to know the girls personalities and likes and dislikes prior to meeting them and I think this helped to ease them in because she knew exactly how to engage with them about the things they cared about the most. It was an absolute pleasure welcoming Shada into my home and into my children’s lives and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend or to have her back. The girls still ask about her now so she has definitely left a positive mark.
Straight after the first visit they were excited and asking when she will come again. I can only use this to say that is a testament to Shada’s character. She has a warm and welcoming nature. She has all the typical qualities that you would look for in a nanny, patient, kind, fun, responsible. But most importantly for me, trustworthy.
I wasn’t sure how to start my testimonial about our time with Shada so I thought I might as well ask the people she spent time with the most, the kids! So I did. My 7 year old instantly put two thumbs up ‘wait’ she said, then she put two toes up too! My youngest (2) is usually a shy child, taking time to get to know people and to even communicate with them but once she does you can’t get her to stop talking. So you can imagine my surprise when as soon as she met Shada she was chatting away, not just responding to questions but initiating them too!
I randomly came across Nanny Sharz when I was looking for a sleep consultant for my then 9-month-old son. Booking the in-house sleep consultancy package was the best decision I made! As soon as Shada walked through my front door, my son took to her almost immediately and climbed onto her lap. He was reliant on needing a bottle to fall asleep, incapable of self-soothing, up multiple times in the night, and nearly always needed to be rocked to sleep.Shada worked her magic, and there was a remarkable difference in my son's sleeping habits in just 24 hours.
Many thanks Shada for all your help in the last few weeks.As parents that usually send their kids to nursery, we didn't really know what to expect and your services and support during these challenging times excited our expectations. You are clearly very experienced and know how to read the children's needs. Your positive energy is contagious. I truly never heard of a nanny that brings activities with her just to make the day extra special for the children.Thank you again for everything with hopes that our paths cross again in the future.
Shada worked mainly on weekends. She thrived within weeks of starting the role, exceeding expectations from everyone. Shada showed excellent time keeping skills, leadership and teamwork during her time with us. She is able to adapt to her surroundings quickly and is always willing to learn new things and take on new advice. During her time here, it was clear that looking after children is a passion rather than a hobby. We were very sad to say goodbye to Shada, but glad she stayed in the child care sector as it is her calling.
The coaching session I had with Shada was worth everything. We zoomed in on the specific issues I wanted help with, she offered guidance, validation and valuable advice that I could incorporate. I took everything I needed from the session but the hour went by fast as Shada is delightful company and easy to talk to. I'm very pleased to have booked and will definitely book again in the future.
I have been an international nanny for 10 years and having Shada as my mentor has helped move my career up another level, I have been able to do things in the last few months that I’d never been able to do before because of my own insecurities and staying in my comfort zone. Shada was able to get me out of that and help me truly believe in myself. I still have a long way to go but am so excited to have Shada as part of my nanny journey, I honestly couldn’t do it without her.
Shada’s mentoring programme is amazing, her support and her professional insight is invaluable and has helped me so much in my career over a couple of months. Shada has helped me with a range of topics, such as social media, being more assertive in work, contracts, how to set your boundaries as well as boosting my own confidence and self-esteem as a professional nanny.
I’m so happy we had the experience. It allowed him to be active in his environment. It meant I was coming home to him after work and that made a great difference to both of us. He seemed happier and you can tell he appreciated seeing me leave and come home again. He couldn’t wait to show me what they had made that day and he still loves to watch videos of their outings. Shada really gave my son her time and attention, and it shows. Thank you Shada.
We had a video call with Nanny Sharz and my son was curious, but shy to meet her in person. I wasn’t sure how this was going to go. In a few days he was going to wake up to a stranger in his home as I had to leave for work by 3.30am. On the morning we met Nanny Sharz and my Son sat with her as if he'd known her forever!
I booked a consultation with Shada for a pep talk, as this past year has brought many challenges. Not only is she radiant and easy to talk to. She came up with a couple of comprehensive options I could potentially choose from and I'm looking forward to book her for a more tailored approach to my challenges. Highly recommend!
Shada is amazing, and so knowledgable. She gave me the tools I needed to correct the bad habits which my son had formed. From the third day Shada was in my home up until today, my son has slept through the night consistently for 12 hours straight. I would definitely recommend Shada to any family who need help with sleep training their babies. Thanks again Nanny Sharz
Shada Lambert has been simply amazing, megnetizing my daughter from the first minute, and proposing a lot of very nice, educational and engaging activities. My daughter was indeed very disappointed to hear when that the week was over and she'd be left with us instead for the weekend! Together, they've done amazing crafts and had a lot of fun! Shada has also always been super responsive, I couldn't recommend Shada more!
I would class myself as an experienced career nanny. I called Shada when I didn’t know how to handle a situation at work. Shada, you’re amazing and one in a million. You have not only helped me with work situations but helped me with my start-up business and plan. You’re so knowledgeable, professional and the kindest heart.
My consultation with Shada was amazing and made me feel really confident again. She made me remember why I’m doing what I do and the reasons why I love being a nanny. It felt like I was having a conversation with my sister, just felt relaxed. Just amazing to see a black woman doing something so rewarding!! It’s inspiring. I can’t wait to start mentoring with her.
Shada was very helpful in our consultation regarding becoming a successful nanny. I find Shada has the RIGHT attitude for working in the childcare industry with lots of enthusiasm, knowledge & abundance! - My Little Diamonds
Shada worked with us in November of 2020 and looked after our 13 month old boy. My husband and I were very impressed by Shada’s breadth of knowledge and enthusiasm. She provided guidance regarding meal times and information on sign language for babies, which was so helpful. Our son was unsettled due to his full time nanny being unexpectedly absent and Shada took his tantrums in her stride and kept calm and open. We would heartily recommend her as a wonderful addition to any family.

"I came to Shada for some advice regarding night time potty training and I am so glad that I did! Shada advised that I stop putting alarms on and taking my son toilet before I go bed and when I naturally wake up. In my opinion night time training is harder but with Shada’s extra tips, it has really helped us to get to the stage of having a whole week dry in row! Which has never happened and my son is 5!! The writing down the times really allowed me to gage when my son needed to use the toilet! Thanks once again Shada"️
Thank you so much for the advice @nannysharz was so so helpful and professional my son now has the perfect routine and is thriving..xxx
"She is extremely knowledgeable about children and has a wonderful rapport with them. She is a professional who is punctual and hard-working, she is also a very warm and loving person. I know they are safe and cared for very well. Both of my children love her, and I hold her in the highest regard.”
“Shada’s passion and enthusiasm from the first time we met her shone through and my husband and I knew, from a few minutes meeting her that she was going to be the sole nanny to our boys.”
“Shada is very professional, reliable, punctual, kind, energetic, loving and trustworthy individual and for a family that had never employed a sole nanny in the past, she made the transition to this for us extremely easy.”
“We cannot stress how much of a positive impact she has made on our boys and on our family as a whole. She is exceptionally hardworking, organised, punctual, nurturing, bubbly and passionate about being a good Nanny and we highly recommend her as a nanny for any family.”
“The loving, nurturing approach she showed towards our boys is like no other and they always loved having her around. We never had to worry about our boys being looked after well because it was clear from their behaviour and attitude towards her that they genuinely cared for her as she did for them”
“As parents, we thoroughly valued and appreciated Shada’s opinion and suggestions when it came to matters relating to the boys – e.g. development plans. She always gave logical ideas as to her suggestions and true to word, we would see the positive impact on our boys”
“Shada has made the last year of motherhood a lot easier and manageable for me. She is a very professional, reliable, punctual, kind, energetic, loving and trustworthy individual”
“When Shada started working for us, we were going through a rough patch with my older son (he was about 2 years and 4 months at the time) in terms of his feeding and independence. Upon starting, we can say that we saw a clear positive difference in his attitude, particularly towards these two areas of his life”
“Shada was very professional in her approach, from our initial telephone conversation to the several meetings we had with me prior to her employment with her”
“Besides being a great nanny, she is also a really nice person who genuinely loves working with children. Even for me as a parent, there are times when it gets stressful, but Shada really helped to ease that stress for me, I would highly recommend her services.”
“I have found Shada to be a reliable, trustworthy and honest person who I trust wholeheartedly with my daughter. She is a lovely person who loves children and also has their best interests at heart.”
“She is exceptionally hardworking, organised, punctual, nurturing, bubbly and passionate about being a Nanny. She is very reliable especially at the last minute she would always try her best to accommodate me and the boys.”
“During my time getting to know Shada she has always been very professional, kind, energetic, loving and trustworthy. She was very attentive to my boys' needs and went overboard and beyond to keep them happy. Shada looked after the boys from they were 5 and 1 and potty trained my youngest child. She always used to play with them make up little dance routines, she is very playful and the boys loved it”
“We were going through a rough patch with my older son (he was about 2 years and 4 months at the time) in terms of his feeding and independence. Months down the line, he was a lot more confident and independent and feeding him at meals times at the table became a thing of the past. Concurrently, Shada took on the task of potty training our older son, something we hadn’t attempted to do before she started. Within a week, our son was out of diapers and 6 months down the line, is now a fully potty trained toddler”
“I had a phone interview today with a family and I asked most of the questions you provided on the document, the mother said of wow you’re asking very good questions haha. It also helped me to get to know the family so much in order to make my decision to move further or not too. I would have never thought of these if it wasn’t for you. Thank you so much, Shada, honestly! You’re a lifesaver”
“Omg thank you so much I really appreciate your feedback and it helps so much. Thank you again. Seems like a lot to take in but one step at a time I guess. I will defo take your advice and will keep in touch with my progress if there’s anything more I need to know I will be in touch. Lockdown delaying things but as soon as I can start making some steps.”
“Hi Shada, Thank you so so much for following my page and your support - I wouldn’t be at 1000 followers if it weren’t for you! Thank you once again and I am looking forward to posting more recipes. Love peace and happiness”
