About Me


Hello All,

My name is Timnit , I am originally from Eritrea, but I was born and grew up in Italy.
I am a Mum of three gorgeous girls .
I am 33years of age, responsible and mature especially when it comes to take care of vulnerable little and adults people.
i'm an experienced warm,nanny/carer who is firm but fair.
I have been looking after babies and children for more than 10years ..
I find looking after children quite rewarding, and I feel really privileged to have been involved in the education and development of the children I have worked with so far.
-I can follow the routine that has been set out from the family/and collaborate to create one.
-I cook to a reasonable standard for the child/children
-I am a person who enjoys being outdoors in all kinds of weather , doing different activities,
who is motivated
who can work under own initiative.

I am passionate about working with children, helping them develop and exploring their world through play. I have worked with children from early age to 10 years old for the past 10 years as a full/part-time nanny with own child, sole charge and mother's help.

I believe that it is important to implement the routine that each family prefers but I bring to that routine my own love of playing games and encouraging children to be imaginative and to have fun. I understand the need to be 100% reliable and punctual and of maintaining great communication with the parents whilst their children are in my care.

Therefore i have a CRB/DBS check and have had one since 2009.

NOT CURRENTLY OFSTED REGISTERED- HAppy to become if family requires/wishes

Below are the latest reviews for Timnit. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.

Timnit is a nanny with caring, trustworthy and professional sides. She would give care, interaction, as well as guidance to your babies and toddlers. She was a temporary nanny for our two-year daughter in May 2021. Timnit engaged with her from the first minute; she can focus amazingly with the needs of your toddler; her very good articulation (in both English and Italian) and her focus are impressive. In addition, she cooks very nice food; our daughter loved it. Timnit also can adapt to any baby and toddler due to her experience and expertise; she can make them comfortable and calm in the case of tantrum. In addition, she also makes sure our daughter have a similar routine as before; so she made sure she sleeps during her nap time. While she is a very good nanny, she is also experienced in teaching toddlers and babies new skills with different toys and activities (indoor and outdoor). I would like highly recommend Timnit as a nanny; you can trust in her and your precious one would have wonderful time with her.

Timnit has worked with our family as sole change nanny for 2 years from 2017. She looks after our 2 daughters who were 1 and 4 when she started with us. Like the other parents have written here, she is a wonderful nanny. There are many things I appreciate about Timnit, but what I value most is that she wholeheartedly looks after the whole family. She respects children and parents equally. She observes and takes her cue from my parenting style. That means we have a consistent approach to important things like boundaries and discipline which makes her the best kind of partner in supporting our family.

She is kind, considerate and, for me, strikes exactly the right balance between fun and firm. She puts children (and adults) at ease, while making sure they are safe and happy. She is extremely patient and never loses her temper. Timnit brings her daughter to work and this arrangement has worked brilliantly for us. The girls enjoy having another playmate and Timnit manages the 3 children with ease and is always professional and fair in resolving any minor conflicts. The girls have formed a truly special and lasting bond with her daughter and they continue to play together regularly, even while Timnit is on maternity leave.

It’s obvious not just to me, but other parents who’ve observed her looking after my daughters that Timnit loves what she does. That passion shows through in the high quality care she gives and in the types of relationships she forms with children and parents. She recognises how special each child is and what their qualities are. She looks for ways to nurture those qualities through activities they enjoy. She and her family will remain lifelong friends and I recommend her with confidence to any family.

I can't imagine trusting anyone more with my children. Timnit is reliable, very helpful and thoughtful.

Timnit has been working with us since April 2015 with our first son (at that time 16 months old) and from February this year she has also took great care of our second one. I cannot say enough about Timnit, she is trustworthy, motivated and able to make herself tune-up with the different requirements of my 2 boys (now 10 months old and almost 3 y-o) and my family. She is always on time but also flexible to stay longer in case we need her.

She is very good in planning the day and finding activities, taking the boys to playgrounds, courses or playing in the park. She prepares very nice and healthy Italian meals, and also tidy up afterwards and leave the kitchen clean.

Sometimes she does also some babysitting for us in the evening, this involves playing/reading with the kids, cooking them dinner, feeding, bathing and putting them in bed. Our boys enjoy her company very much and behave better with her than with us!

On a general note, I think she is genuinely interested in children’s development and presents new ways of learning that captured their attention. Timnit possess all qualities that make a nanny successful and she has become part of our family.

I do recommend her with no doubt.

Timnit is a wonderful nanny whom I trust completely and whom I cannot recommend more highly. Any family would be very lucky to have her indeed.

She is experienced, punctual, reliable, upbeat, confident, takes initiative and has fantastic intuition when it comes to my son. His little face lights up from the moment he hears her keys in the door. She is an excellent cook, with fantastic ideas and tips for getting my 12 month (when she started) son to try and enjoy different foods. She is very proactive and organised, so I knew that each day they were off on an exciting outing or going to a relevant class; from singing to baby theatre. She is also very experienced with administering a Salbutamol inhaler – no easy task with a young baby – which was a great help and reassurance, as my son needed this medication regularly whilst in her care.

Finally, Timnit’s genuine dedication and love for my son is very special; as well as the enthusiasm and support she demonstrates in his development and learning.

Timnit has been an indispensible part of our little family; as a devoted nanny to my son and a friend to myself. We are very sad to see her go but wish her every happiness as she starts her own family.

Timnit was wonderful: I needed a last minute sitter and she came to pick up my 7 and 13 year old and went on a day of activities with them. They were delighted. Thank you Timnit!
