I am a 30 year old experienced babysitter. Although I do not have Childcare Qualifications (I had to give up the course I was on to care for a relative) I think my experience makes up for it as my knowledge comes from practical experience rather than a textbook.
I am looking for parents who need irregular childcare or part time childcare. For example mum's who are on Maternity Leave and want join an exercise class or have a rest, parents who work freelance, parents whose childcare needs change regularly, parents that work from home, parents that want to attend evening classes. As well as that the usual evening babysitting so that you can enjoy a social life.
I like to keep my time with your children focused on them so light household tasks will be carried out only when your child/children are sleeping.
I have worked with babies from 20 days old on both a sole charge and shared care basis. I have experience of looking after more than one child at a time, Autism, additional needs and English As A Second language.
I can support your child's learning and development including keeping a Learning Journal for younger children.
I have no Childcare Qualifications. It is something I am looking in to gaining. I have found a series of Continuing Professional Development courses which are a better option, financially, for me at the moment. The first that I am completing is a "Nursery Nurse" course. In time I will also take "Safeguarding Children" and "Nutrition" courses.
I have been First Aid trained but let my last certificate lapse.
Due to the way I work my availability changes. Please contact me with the days and times you need your child/children looked after.

Kate had been babysitting for our 2 boys for a few months now and have absolutely no complaints at all. She's excellent with the boys; caring and attentive and lots of fun too. Kate has a great attitude to everything and is our first port of call if we need a night out.
If you are needing a professional, reliable and caring person to look after your children then look no further. ?
Kate is very professional and reliable while friendly and incredibly patient with the kids. She has been looking after my twins for 5 months now in our home. Both children very much look forward to seeing her every week. Communication with Kate is easy, and I feel well-informed about what has been going on while I am away; - I have always trusted her completely with the care of my children (who can be difficult due to additional needs).
Happy and caring nanny who always makes my child smile. Professional and personable. Has taken the time to get to know all of us. Looks after my little one in my own home.
Kate has been fantastic while caring for our 8 months old daughter for nearly a month before she goes to her nursery. My daughter is a handful baby and yet Kate has been really patient with her and provide excellent care for her. Nothing is too much trouble for her when it comes to caring for our daughter. Without being asked, during my daughter naps, Kate would do chores around the house (washing up baby bottles etc and even our dirty dishes from the night before, doing laundry, folding my daughters' clothes, etc.). She has also done the same when we asked her to babysit in the evening.
I was initially worried getting back to work full time. Fortunately, Kate made the transition really easy. My daughter loves her and gives her the biggest smile whenever she arrived in the morning and was happy and content when we got back from work. Her punctuality and time keeping are superb.
We really enjoyed having Kate as our nanny/babysitter and would definitely ask her again in the future.
Thanks for everything Kate!!
We have known Kate for 3 month. She looks after our 16 months old son. He really likes her!
She is really professional, she completes a paper detailing what they have done each afternoon. From this I have a complete picture of his whole afternoon including what he has eaten, how long he has slept and all his activities.
She is ponctual, and a great communicator. She always seems kind, patiente with him and well behaved and know what's expected of him.
We highly recommend Kate !
