I am a highly experienced childcare provider who has worked in London primary schools as a Special Needs Assistant for more than fifteen years.
I'm a mum of three children, who have all studied at and are Graduates from UCL. I have been a Primary School Governor for some years and understand the vital relationship between home and school. I engage with children about this in an exciting way; bringing to life numbers, words, and the World in which we live, releasing and encouraging their creativity.
I have vast experience supporting children - helping them to gain confidence and become independent learners; enabling them to reach their full potential whilst still experiencing their childhood. My most recent engagements have been with babies and toddlers.
I am highly motivated, reliable, creative and enthusiastic and would love to work with you and your children.
I'm based right on the edge of the City of London close to Tower Bridge and St Katharine's Dock and convenient for Canary Wharf and all City of London locations. I'm five minutes from Tower Gateway, Tower Hill, Aldgate and Aldgate East Tube stations and many local bus routes.

Eileen is incredible! I am a first time mum and my husband works long hours. Eileen started looking after my son when he was 12 weeks old. He’s now 5 months old and loves his time with Eileen. She takes him for a few hours a couple of times a week and in that time, I know he is 100% safe and happy. Eileen is constantly coming up with new and exciting ways to entertain him, keeps me completely up to date about what they’ve done and is entirely reliable. One of the best things about Eileen is that she is very flexible and never makes you feel disorganised or embarrassed if you have to change plans or forget something (this happens to me quite a lot!) I would recommend Eileen to anyone in need of a break from childcare! It’s also worth noting that my son has really developed since Eileen began working with us. He was premature and still very small when Eileen started to care for him. She gave me the confidence to try new things out with him and offers non-pushy guidance freely which I find invaluable.
When I was looking for someone to look after my toddler a few mornings a week a friend referred me to Eileen ... and we haven’t looked back. My daughter adores her. We have just moved out of London and miss Eileen so much. She is trustworthy, super organised (far better than me!), and a kind soul, she is an absolute natural with children and babies.
We loved her strong focus on good behaviour and teaching and were amazed at what she managed to do with our 2 year old who was always thrilled with all the organised activities and outings. She even turned up with a back pack full of awesome bits and pieces when we had a toddler sick at home and in need of some stay at home entertainment.
We really appreciated her flexibility and all the help and advice she offered.
She because a fabulous extension to our family and would thoroughly recommend her.
Eileen has been the most fantastic nanny for my daughter Noelle since she was about 9 months (now 14 months). We are sad to have to give her up now as we are moving.
She is very professional, flexible and always on time. Noelle was always happy when I told her Eileen was coming and they would play on the floor, do arts and crafts or go out to play groups or playgrounds. She does lots of singing and makes creative home-made games based on Noelle's interests and capabilities.
Eileen keeps up to date with current research and obtained information specific to issues we experienced with Noelle such as weaning and sleep training. She also provided great support and practical help with these issues in a calm and reassuring way.
She has been a huge help to us, Noelle loves her and so do I. I highly recommend Eileen!
Eileen looked after our adopted son (8 years old) for just under a year. First for foremost, our son thoroughly enjoyed his time with Eileen - he was safe, happy, clean and cared for outstandingly - and further Eileen was 100% reliable and always flexible/accommodating. Eileen’s responsibilities included school runs, homework and general child minding (dinner time, bath time etc.) three evenings per week. In addition Eileen often had our son for full days during parts of the school holidays and inset days.
Eileen really showed an interest in our son, and our family, and took every opportunity to support him and help him to grow academically and emotionally. Eileen arranged play dates with children in her wider family/network for him; would buy books and board games to broaden his interests; planned trips where he could have fun, play with others and learn; and worked very hard to bring his homework to life.
Eileen also supported us as a family, supporting our approach to parenting and championing our shared values.
Eileen is extremely capable, diligent, hard working, honest, caring and has great values. A change in our employment was the only reason that we parted ways. We would happily and confidently recommend Eileen to other families and miss her dearly.
Thank you Eileen!
I can not recommend Eileen more highly. As a first time mom I had the naive vision that mat leave would be a chance to tick off my to-do list while I watched my sleeping baby on the monitor. Ha! After six months of spending most of the day trying to get my daughter to take a nap with no time to so much as drink a hot tea I finally came to childcare.co.uk looking for help and thank god, we found Eileen. She came three days a week for 4-5 hours at a time and was the best part-time playmate, caregiver and teacher we could have ever hoped for. Not only was she responsibly and trustworthy, but she put a huge amount of thought and effort into activity planning (I would occasionally even get texts the night before she came asking if we had certain supplies or toys she could use). For my daughter, every day with Eileen meant fun trips to the park, visits to the library and even seasonal sensory play - she even brought her own pumpkin to our house after Halloween so that my daughter could experience a pumpkin carving! For me, every day with Eileen meant complete peace of mind that my daughter was safe, happy and learning. Eileen even did special projects with my daughter to make Thanksgiving and Christmas presents for us. When we first started looking for help I thought I would have to settle for someone who would keep my daughter safe and vaguely entertained. Instead we found Eileen, a brilliant parent and teacher who treated my daughter as her own, constantly thinking of new ways to help her reach her next developmental milestone and learn about the world. We loved our time with Eileen and know that she would be a wonderful support to any family.
