About Me

Hi, I’m Marinella - mum to a 10 year old and a 2 year old, we live in Battersea.

We home educate so neither of my boys goes to school or nursery. We follow a mindful, self-directed and consent-based approach to living and learning and I’d love to find someone who understands what that means or is open to learning about it.

I’ve just started a professional training course to become a doula and I will be starting my own business in the coming months so I will need some childcare here and there to cover times when I can’t be available for my children. I’d also like to cover an evening out once or twice a month. Once I start practicing as a doula I will be needing more childcare.

My Requirements


Occasional babysitting - a few daytime hours on weekdays and weekends, and one or two evenings a month.

Ideally I’d like to find a caring, easygoing, open-minded person who could be our regular babysitter so my children could build up a rapport with you. I do understand that this would be a side-hustle and you may not always be available when I need, but I’d still like to build a relationship where it felt like you were a part of our family.

My 10yo son is neurodivergent and very happy pursuing his own interests by himself, in fact he says he’d prefer not to be disturbed by a babysitter - hopefully you won’t be offended by that!

His 2yo brother needs someone who will play with him, read stories and generally have fun to distract him from mum being gone :)

I’m less concerned about your qualifications and more concerned that you and my children get on well, and that you can meet them where they’re at.
