About Me

Hi I'm Louisa and have found my Unicorn (nanny) family 3-6pm Mon-Fri and available for mornings until 2pm and babysitting evenings/weekends.

I have a fun, bubbly personality and am a natural with children, I get down to children's levels to really inspire and help them to express themselves. I'm a mature (40) professional who is looking to change career and get onto a level 3 childcare course so that I can care and grow little hearts and minds like my own children, who are 11 (girl), 17 and 18 (boys), I really miss them being young. They are looked after by my partner full-time as he works from home so I will be completely reliable. I have been self-employed over the last 18 years so that I could be there for my children.

I have the full use of my car which is fully insured to take children.

I have full public liability nanny insurance, paediatric first aid and an enhanced DBS certificate.

I have a love of all things craft, so I can make jewellery, cards, dolls furniture and also enjoy playing and creating age-appropriate games including, singing, music and dancing.

I am proficient in computers and can design graphics and websites. I've run my own businesses for so long, I could help with administration etc. if need be!

I love helping out at birthday parties. Children and pets flock to me because I really get in on the action with playing and starting games but they do just seem to warm to me.

We have 2 cats and have also had dogs in the past, so I am comfortable with most animals.

I have years of experience with cloth nappies, severe allergies and children who experience some communication problems.

My own children are well-rounded, loving, kind and intelligent. I have always shared my love of books with them.

I have an interest in health, homoeopathy, osteopathy and natural alternatives and supplements.

I love going to the park and on days out. I also like to keep the house tidy and in order. I had a domestic and commercial cleaning company so I know how to get down to things!

My Experience

I am currently nannying for a family 3-6pm Mon-Fri, with 2 children aged 4 and 10.

I have been babysitting a 5-year-old girl who usually is quite a handful for her mum but never plays up for me, she's good as gold!

I have been a nanny for a 3-year-old girl part-time, she was a joy to look after and I discovered my inner child!

Occasionally, I babysit 2 and 8-year-old girls who are very active and into playing indoors and out for a number of years.

I have minded a girl of 8 over a period of a year for before and after school, many years ago, when my children were young.

I have always helped out at the children's schools, pre-schools, fairs and PTA's.

I am the eldest sister of 6 brothers and sisters so I'm at natural mummy figure.
