Hi , my name is Christy. I am a fun, caring, patient and flexible person who gets on well with everyone I meet. I am a non-smoker and will only consider working with a smoke free family.
I have been nannying for 11 years now. A mixture of sole charge nannying and nanny sharing. I used to run a Rainbows unit (a club within the guides for girls aged 5-7) in my local area - I was the leader in charge for three years, and was volunteering as an extra helper for seven years previous to this. Having moved areas I had to give this up.
I am also a babysitter for various families (references can be provided).
I have experience with all ages from newborns upwards.
I also have experience with twins.

Christie looked after my son, two days a week for a year, from when he was 7 months old when I returned to work. She has a lovely, warm and friendly character, is extremely capable and has extensive experience as a nanny. Looking after my son, she was always flexible and followed my instructions as requested.I never had any hesitation leaving my son in her care.
My son had a great time with Christie, she made sure he had a varied programme each day. They visited the Tall Ship and Transport Museum, still a favourite with my son, the Science Centre, Play Gym at Palace of Art and Kelvin Hall and a variety of local toddler groups. He also had lots of trips to the park, feeding the ducks, running around in the leaves and playing on the swings. It's a real bonus that Christie has her own car.
She was happy to baby-sit in the evenings, often at fairly short notice, and was flexible when I had to work late. I would not hesitate to recommend Christie as a nanny and would employ her again.
Asking Christy to be our nanny over 2 years ago was one of the best decisions we ever made. She has now become part of the family! I wanted a nanny who I could trust to nuture and guide our 1 year old daughter. Christy exceeded our expectations. She listened carefully to what was important to us as a family and has always put that first. Luckily we were on the same page about most things but she was always careful to listen to us and our daughter and we have had a very honest and comfortable relationship where we could discuss things as they came up.
She has always provided our daughter with stimulating, age-appropriate activities, been flexible and allowed us to share with other families creating a great social-circle for our wee one. She upholds healthy eating, good manners and clear boundaries, which she gently enforces. She has also successfully navigated us through multiple early hurdles including potty training!
She has always been incrediably reliable and has allowed us flexibility and patience with the challenge of coordinating 2 NHS doctors rotas. With maternity leave coming up and our professional arrangement changing, I am sure and hope we will continue to see Christy as we just really enjoy having her around!
Christy babysat for my two kids now aged 12 & 11 for many years. She's a great babysitter, always early, gets on well with the kids but also able to get them to brush their teeth and get to bed on time.
Many of my friends have also had her to babysit or be their nanny and all have got nothing but praise for her :-)
A really lovely person, I'd be happy to recommend her to you.
Christy has been nanny for my 5 and 7 year old girls for over a year now. The girls love being with her as she is always fun and does stuff like visits to parks/museums, baking and crafts. From a parents perspective she is very reliable and flexible (and has been invaluable recently due to a new job and demanding hours!). She is always accommodating as possible when need to change days and arrange last minute childcare. Very mature for her age and able to deal with tantrums etc no problem. We will miss Christy a great deal as my younger daughter is now starting school. I would have no hesitation in recommending Christy to any family.
We have used Christy for babysitting on several occasions and would recommend her to any family.
From our persoective she is prompt, professional and very reliable. Our 3 children aged 11, 8 and 6 love having her around as she is fun and makes them feel secure.
