About Me

I am a confident, nurturing and bubbly person and i'm very approachable and easy to talk to.

I am a qualified primary school teacher, with qualified teacher status. My previous work includes two ski seasons in the French Alps, the first as a Nanny in a nursery in Belle Plagne, the second as Head Nanny managing a nursery in Courchevel. In addition to this I have a few families which I babysit for fairly regularly and they are all very happy with the service I provide, some of which I have babysat for several years now and have therefore formed close attachments with the children I look after.

I've had lots of previous experience in the babysitting field, caring for a variety of different aged children and I am very keen to provide my services to parents and families looking for an experienced childcare worker. I have also provided my babysitting services overnight on several occasions so this is something I would be comfortable to provide if needed also.

In addition to babysitting, I am willing to provide tutoring experience if needed to primary age children (I can present my Qualified Teacher Status certificate on request to support this), I just ask for notice for me to plan and gather resources to meet the criteria needed.

Thank you for taking the time to view my profile, If you require any more information or would just like to chat, please don't hesitate to contact me.

I have also had experience of two ski seasons in the French Alps, working with children aged 4 months to 12 years old whilst overseeing a strong team of Nannies to ensure that 100% guest happiness was achieved.

Lydia babysat for my two boys (5 and 2 yo) at the last minute.
Lydia was super quick at responding to my message and very communicative to sort out the logistics.
She babysat for the evening at a hotel while we enjoyed a family celebration.
She messaged me during the evening to reassure everything was fine with the boys.
She was extremely personable and reliable.
Highly recommend Lydia as a babysitter!

Lydia was amazing with our boys! While we were out, she checked in and let us know how the night was going. She made us feel so comfortable while watching our boys. Our boys gave her a 10.5 out of 10!
