20th Anniversary

Providing childcare to families across Aberdeen and Shire since 2000

Childcare in the home

Rebecca has made such an impact on our family. Our home is so much calmer as Rebecca is so organised and proactive. I don’t even have to ask her or remind her to do something, she just does it! She is really kind & caring with the children too who just love her! I would recommend to all working parents to contact Thank Evans.

Regular Client

The nanny Thank Evans provided had a lot of experience, has always been flexible with additional hours, professional, and keen on providing extra services like light housework and picking up food and prescriptions. The nanny is family to us and has been extremely caring to our two children. The office has always been very responsive to phone calls and emails. Overall I would greatly recommend using Thank Evans for childcare services.

Regular Client

May I just take the opportunity to thank you for all your assistance, and for the excellent service you provide. I also wish to emphasise how sad we are to have to say goodbye to our nanny. She’s been absolutely outstanding, and my children really adore her!

Holiday Cover

Excellent provision of school holiday cover for the fifth year now. Hayley was very tolerant of our busy family life. We would definitely use Thank Evans again as we have never had an issue with staff who care for our children.

Holiday Cover

Fantastic service! You’ve always managed to find us friendly and competent nannies, often at short notice, with whom we’ve felt no hesitation leaving our children. We feel the rates charged are reasonable given the quality of care provided. We would recommend you to other families.

Holiday Cover

Our nanny was excellent with our daughter and was always willing to do any of the child-related tasks asked of her. The overall Thank Evans experience has been a positive one and I wouldn’t hesitate to use again.

Thank Evans provides me with a flexible, dependable childcare service that works around my changing needs. The carers are friendly, professional, show a sincere interest in my children and have adapted well to my children’s changing needs as they mature.

Regular Client

Thank Evans supported us for six years and through lots of different phases of life — early mornings, late nights, overnights, after school — and I would recommend the service wholeheartedly. We now no longer require this service but our experience has been excellent throughout.

Regular Client

Jackie is very professional yet approachable and caring. Excellent service — reliable and comprehensive. Would recommend this company to all families looking for childcare. A very positive experience with Thank Evans.

Regular Client

Having used Thank Evans for 3 years I have been delighted with the professional, yet very personal & caring service we received. Thank Evans were so proactive in finding the right nanny for us - they set up interviews with a few nannies but we clicked with Jackie straight away! It was also fantastic to know that Jackie had been with Thank Evans for 10 years + this made us feel like Thank Evans was a well established business with a strong retention of staff., which speaks for itself! Having our nanny meant our younger children could be picked up from school & nursery & taken straight home to the comfort of their home, where the nanny then did homework, took them to clubs or played until she prepared their meal.
We were also impressed that the owner, Susan, stepped in to provide us with cover when needed - she is not afraid to roll up her sleeves & get involved, it is clear she loves working with children.

Childcare at events

Kayleigh-Anne did a great job of looking after our two children at a family wedding, helping settle our daughter who was not too keen to leave the party! Both kids immediately felt secure with her and gave us great peace of mind to leave them for the evening.

Pittodrie House wedding

We came to Aberdeen for a family funeral and used Thank Evans for childcare for our son. Great service and Debbie was very easy to chat to. 5/5 all round.

Funeral service user

I cannot recommend Thank Evans enough. They were absolutely fantastic from start to finish — we had a lot of children including our own daughter. The entertainment they provided was first class and we received so many compliments from all the parents. It made our day so much more relaxing and the children had the best time.

Coos Cathedral bride

Just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you very much to the ladies who came to look after the children at our wedding. All the feedback we’ve had from our guests has been very positive and the kids seemed to have a great time.

Ardoe House Hotel bride

Professional and caring individuals, who clearly take their role seriously. It was wonderful to see some of the parents at our wedding relaxed and enjoying themselves knowing that their children were safe and having fun. Great value for money, highly recommend!

Myers Castle bride

I’m so glad I booked thank Evans for our wedding! Wonderful communication and very professional staff. The kids all loved it! We had a crèche for during the meal and babysitting service in a couple of our rooms at night, including for our wee boy, allowing our family time to enjoy our evening entertainment. The pressure was lifted as soon as they arrived.

Pittodrie House Hotel bride

I did a brief handover with the nanny looking after my two daughters and she used her initiative for anything I did not tell her. The ladies were clearly very good with children and by all accounts, the kids had a brilliant time with them!

Meldrum House Hotel guest

All staff were very well organised, friendly, and caring. Excellent Service, first class staff in particular Amanda who stayed on to look after my granddaughter once she was settled for the night. Can’t recommend her enough.

Emergency childcare

I would like to thank you for what the agency did for us when we needed a babysitter at night due to unplanned C-section. I can’t even imagine how I could go through the surgery with no one besides me, but you guys stepped up and supported me through the process. The twins were born at 35 weeks, so they had to stay in the neonatal care unit. I really liked the nannies you provided us with to care for our boys at home while I was in hospital

Emergency Client

Susan was an absolute godsend to us in the early days of having my son. We had trouble with him sleeping from the very beginning. By the time we enlisted Susan’s help I really was at my wits end, and embarrassingly a bit of an emotional wreck. Susan was absolutely lovely, and with no judgment whatsoever provided us with very positive and professional support to encourage a proper sleep routine for my son. Susan was also a great support to me, and I really do credit her with pretty much changing our lives for the better!

Emergency Client

Supporting nurseries

It has been stress-free and excellent. The staff you supplied were all warm and friendly and in a small nursery that is vital. Our small team all got on well with the ladies you sent. The ladies were all reliable and very knowledgeable and are a total credit to your company. Thank you we will definitely recommend your company and when the situation arises will use you again. Isabel was a lovely quiet lady who worked very hard during her two shifts with us. The children really liked her and warmed to her caring nature. Annie really fitted in with our small team. She was very hard-working and has a bubbly personality and a zest for life — great qualities in nursery life. Kaylea was reliable and hard-working during her shift with us. She ensured that the children were all familiar with her and made a special attempt to get to know all their names.

Queen’s Cross Nursery

Thank Evans provides a valuable service to the childcare sector. It is difficult to find ad-hoc staff and this gives us peace of mind that we can book qualified staff to come in and work. The communication between the services is excellent.

Flowerpots Nursery

Thank Evans have felt like part of our team when they have supported us. Over the past few months, they have provided reliable and enthusiastic staff. Our team have enjoyed working alongside Thank Evans and children have gone home telling their families about particular staff members they like spending time with. This is testament to the staff’s warm and friendly approach. During the pandemic Thank Evans have taken stress away from staffing challenges and are always willing to help wherever they can. We have recommended the service to others whether they are looking for care at an event or support in a setting.

Working with us

I enjoy working for Thank Evans as the company has the same values for helping parents and children as I do. Being able to work closely with families and have
a real impact on everyday life in a positive way is amazing. Thank Evans also allows flexibility for staff so we can arrange our own family life, personal hobbies or other commitments whilst working. They offer support and guidance not only to the families we care for but to the staff, arranging first aid courses, child protection courses and more. I chose to work for Thank Evans as it allowed me to dictate the hours I am available to work and be able to work around my own family life and also gives me the opportunity to add extra hours if I am available.
Why do I work with children? Well these little people are our future, giving a child the best start in life and helping them grow and develop into competent, caring, talented bigger people is the most rewarding position to be in. It is more than just a job it is being there as a role model for their future and also supporting parents who have daily challenges of family life and work. Being trusted with someone's child is an amazing position to be in.

I love working at Thank Evans as I enjoy looking after children and having fun with them. Also enjoy doing different events eg. Weddings as each one is different and fun.

Jackie CrockettJoined 2004

I work with Thank Evans on a part time basis, I love every minute of it as you are working around your own time and when you can work. Working with the children is the best its so rewarding and you see how much fun you give them and how much the families appreciate you.
Everyone at Thank Evans work as part of a team, no matter who you are. I like the fact that you could go into a nursery and work along Susan who is the owner of the business, she is so hands on.
Then Gillian knows everything that's going on so if your stuck she is always there on the end of the phone. No matter how big or small the problem is, or what time it is. They both are always free for the staff. It's just a good and rewarding job with great staff.

I love meeting new families and children within the events and weddings sector and it is great being back and able to provide these services again after Covid 19.

I moved to the UK from Italy, 3 years ago. In Aberdeen, Thank Evans has given me a great opportunity to continue working with children, which is the job I love. Furthermore, I am enjoying to work with an amazing team in a flexible way

Patrizia AmodioJoined 2021

I did not like retirement and age was against me so I joined Thank Evans Agency.
I enjoy meeting the nursery children and staff plus the freedom of choosing the shifts but happy to accommodate an emergency cover.
Friendly, approachable management.

Jean DuncanJoined 2019

Although I am reasonably new to the Thank Evans team I have found it to be a very positive experience. Thank Evans provide a flexible working environment and a variety of positions to suit your working needs. I work as a nanny rather than in a group setting yet I still feel part of the wider team due the great communication from management. Feedback and recognition is given often and when required and Thank Evans can also offer external training in order for me to gain more skills necessary in the childcare industry.

Carla MacGillJoined 2020

As a busy mum of 3 boys, I can work around my husbands offshore job so thank you both for having me on your fantastic team and allowing such flexibility. Without Thank Evans I wouldn’t be able to do what I love. Really Looking forward to the future with Thank Evans 😍

Hayleigh JohnstoneJoined 2019

Being a student who loves working with children, Thank Evans is the perfect fit. It really is the most rewarding role. With supportive families, management and colleagues, I have the flexibility to work around my studies at University. I thoroughly enjoy working for Thank Evans and knowing I am making a difference to the lives of children and families.
