I'm loving, nurturing and patient person with great work ethics. I'm extremely reliable, so much fun and I do believe in manners. I can easily adapt to any kind of situation. I believe I'm capable of working with children of any ages thanks to my KNOWLEDGE, EXPERIENCE and LOVING APPROACH.
Ever since I was a child, I’ve loved taking care of children, they inspire me, teach me, make me happy and I love watching them grow and become people with their own personalities. I truly enjoy working with children and cannot imagine doing anything else for living.
I've worked as a nanny for the last 16 years - UK, Switzerland, Australia. I have a current First Aid Certificate, DBS, Diploma of Children's Services, I hold many certificates such as Maternity Nurse, Child Psychology, Infant Allergies, Reflux & Colic, Writing Children’s Stories, Sleep Well, etc. also a Nanny Insurance and the most glowing checkable references. Previously I've also worked in a couple of child care centres in Australia.
I’ve become a maternity nurse during the lockdown and therefore would love to gain more experience in this field.

It was our first experience with a nanny and Kate has proven absolutely fantastic. The energy she brings every day into work is contagious. She is affectionate, full of ideas and resources. She prepares food daily for the little one and she encourages him and cheers him when he learns something new. She is also a master in teaching "thank you" and "please" and other little polite things which do not go unnoticed. She managed to establish some really good routines with our 10 month old boy (sleeping, eating and using the potty) and she is really amazing. Kate is not just "a" nanny, she will become a member of your family. She is always cheerful and enjoys singing lots of songs and reading book to our child.
She is also very careful because of Covid and makes sure to wash her hands and takes all the possible precautions against the virus.
It has been delightful having her with us and we will definitely ask her for help again in the future.
Thank you soooo much Kate!
Kate was with us as a night nurse every night for our firstborn for two weeks when he was just 3 weeks old. She was truly fantastic, she looked after him excellently. She was happy to offer advice and make suggestions whilst at the same time allowing me to find what I was comfortable with. She is an absolute pleasure to have in our home. I feel very confident when leaving our son in her care.
She has continued with us ad hoc and we love having her.
We have been using Kate for the occasional babysitting over the last few years. She has always been reliable, punctual and very friendly and our daughter has grown very fond of her. Kate has a very good way with children and our daughter now loves playing with her for a bit before going to bed, not really caring that mummy and daddy are going out.
We would highly recommend Kate to anyone looking for a babysitter.
Kate has babysat our son from when he was 3 months old. Kate was excellent in doing the complete bedtime routine including bath, bottles, dressing and putting to sleep. She has also babysat during the day, taking him out and about in the stroller.
Kate has an excellent way with children - from the moment she walks through the door she has a smile on her face. She engages with our baby playing with him, singing songs etc. He is never bored!
With a calm, patient manner, Kate has soothed our baby to sleep / back to sleep when he wakes up.
We were so nervous getting a sitter for our son when he was so young but are pleased to have found Kate as all our worries are gone with her.
