To who it may concern,

Adri has worked as a live out nanny for our family from August 2001 untill October 2003 looking after our daughter Carly since she was 3months old up until she was 2 1/2 years old. Adri's reason for leaving was due to her visa expiring and returning to South Africa.

We were very anxious to find someone we could trust implicitly, who would listen to our needs for our daughter and respect our home and belongings. She delivered all of our needs and more, fully respecting the professional position of being a nanny and our specific wish of providing our daughter with a loving, caring nanny when her parents were not there.

Our daughter loved and adored Adri and through Adri's patience and teaching skills has developed to be a very bright, confident, creative and chatty little girl. Adri structured her days to have a balance of physical, mental and creative activities and provided healthy cooking and a balanced diet.

As Carly was our first child both my husband and I were slightly anxious of how we would cope having someone in our house everyday, arriving while we were preparing for work etc. Adri became a member of the family very quickly and respected our home.

I have no hesitation in recommending her and would specifically recommend her for first time parents who need to build confidence quickly with a nanny through the learning curve they are going through.

Kindest regards

Adri has worked for me as a nanny from 24th March 2004 to 19th August 2005. She has had sole charge of my little boy from when he was aged 6 months to nearly 2 years.

Adri has always been punctual, courteous and well presented. She is totally trustworthy and has had control of expenditure relating to my son. She is extremely creative, has encouraged my son to learn to draw and paint and helped him with imaginative play.She has studied psychology and child development, which means that she has an extremely intelligent approach to the child development process.

I work from an office and also from home and Adri has always been flexible with me coming in and out of the house as well as totally capable of sole charge. She is warm and caring and has developed an incredible bond with my son who absolutely adores her.

Adri has a sunny disposition and is always cheerful. She always encouraged and stimulated my son whilst always maintaining boundaries and teaching him wonderful manners. She accompanied him to many playgroups and encouraged social connections with other children. She speaks several languages fluently and I do think that her linguistic skills and attention to language has enabled my son to have a wonderful vocabulary.

Adri is the most exceptional person and we are desolate that she will no longer be with our family. She had to leave due to circumstances outside of our control. However we are very happy that we always remain in contact with her and she will always remain in touch with our son.

We wish Adri every success in her life and are sure that she will have a wonderful career. We have no hesitation in recommending her to any family.

Yours faithfully

Felicia and Houston Morris.


We have known Adri Tempest since April 2007.  Initially Adri looked after our youngest daughter Agnes (from age 14 months), together with a boy of similar age in a nanny share arrangement with another family.  Subsequent to the birth of her own daughter, she looked after Agnes together with her own daughter on a part-time basis.  Adri was at all times caring, efficient, reliable and professional in all aspects of her work.  We have no doubt that Adri will run a caring and fun-to-be-at nursery, adhering to high standards at all times, and encourage you to meet Adri and see for yourself!
