About Me

Hi, I am a mum to 2 grown up children & nan to 3 lovely granddaughters.
I look after children in their own home (Home Childcarer). I have been doing this since 2002.
I am a calm, caring nature but can be firm when required. Sensible and considerate. Very respectful of other peoples homes private lives.
I am a non-smoker.
I have been involved in caring since I was 20 due to my father needing care. This was followed by one of my children being mild special needs. I also spent 11 yrs caring for a previous partner.
So as you can imagine I have plenty of patience.
I'm very happy with my life & love my work.

Tina has been looking after my little girl, now aged 3, for over a year. She is very kind and caring and goes out of her way to be helpful. My daughter adores her and loves to be looked after by her - in fact she never wants to leave.
Tina has also on occasion looked after my other 2 children, who often ask if they can go to her.
Tina has not only looked after my daughter, but gone out of her way to familiarise herself with the rare condition my daughter has and to learn more about it,

I would have no hesitation in recommending tina to anyone

This lady has looked after my 2 children intermittently over the last 5 years .
She is extremely kind and patient. She certainly has an affinity for those children
who require more time to develop at their own pace.
She is also very honest ,reliable and trustworthy.
I highly recommend her.

Thank you for the review. It was my pleasure to help. Hope all is going well in your new home.

Tina has looked after my four children aged between 10 and 3 for the last five years. She is really kind and amazingly flexible. I have always felt really grateful that I am leaving my children in her capable hands.
