About Me

Fun loving nanny with 11 yrs experience 0-12years old kids

I am CURRENTLY working full time during the week and is looking for part time weekend babysittings.

I have been working full time as a nanny, and ad-hoc babysitter for the past 11 years. I have experience looking after children from 0 to 12 years. I work with children between 7 months and school age, and have been lucky enough to stay with all the families I have worked with for a long time which means I get to enjoy being part of helping babies grow into confident little people.
For me, I enjoy the special privilege of being a part of a family for this time, and am looking forward to meeting a new family to work with.
I am a hard-working,honest and reliable individual who enjoys looking after children of all ages. I am also trustworthy , approachable and easy to get on with.I love having so much fun with children and doing lots of different activities with them, arranging a playdate,like playing, singing,face painting, going to the park, playgroups, softplay, monkey music, etc.
I am an OFSTED registered, Maternity Nurse Level 3 OCN accredited, have paediatric First AID, nanny insurance and DBS-checked with up-to-date references.
I live in Kidlington, Oxfordshire

I highly recommend Kate!
Kate worked for us for 2 years, looking after my son (he was 7 months old when we started) as well as another baby girl (same age) who we did a nanny share with.
Kate was the first nanny we ever hired and we couldn't have asked for more!
Just after a few days with Kate, I felt completely relaxed to go back to work and leave my baby boy home, I knew he was in good hands! I totally trust her (she had my home keys).
She was loving, caring, fun, structured, well organised, a good cook, punctual, flexible. She was really good at keeping the kids busy and at finding new activities to do for the kids in our area. Kate was instrumental in the development of my boy and I can't thank her enough for the work she did.
When my son was age 2.5 years old we decided that it was time for him to go to nursery and were heart broken to let her go. We still see her frequently and my son is always super happy to see her when she comes to babysit him!

Kate has babysit for my two year old several times. She is extremely active and caring with him and he always enjoys their time together. She also is trustworthy and has no problem putting him to sleep.

I highly recommend Kate as a nanny for all ages (including from newborn). Kate worked for me full time for almost 2 years as part of a nanny-share, which is coming to a natural conclusion in mid-Sept 2017. She cared for my daughter from approx. age 11-34 months, together with another boy (from 7 months). I also have a new baby girl and I do not hesitate to leave her in Kate's care as well.

Kate has been excellent. She is sweet, reliable, a good communicator, great cook and generally fantastic with kids. They love her and she loves them. She is great at keeping the kids busy all day long. She is energetic and patient, and has been a real asset for the kids' development. She was our first ever nanny and we couldn't have hoped for a better experience and fit. She also worked well as part of a nanny-share (dealing with 2 parents/2 locations etc.), being flexible and accommodating of our different needs. I have never felt worried with my daughter in her care, and trust her completely.
