About Me

I am a Christian aged 22. I have lots of experience working with children and love to do it. Very active person with a large variety of hobbies.

My Experience

I regularly babysit for many families in Poole and surrounding areas. References can be arranged.

Have experience with many different families with ages from 2 years up to 18.

I help run a church youth group and also volunteer with the Lilliput Sea Scouts.

As a male babysitter, finding jobs can be harder due to gender stereotypes.

However, after meeting with parents, I find many like the idea of having a male role model.

I am experienced teaching children up to 12 in many subjects and up to 16 in maths.

My Qualifications

I have completed a 1st response first aid course as a Sea Scouts Leader.

Hold 2 valid DBS checks with my local church as I help to run a youth group and Lilliput Sea Scouts. I also have high level security clearance/checks from my job.

A* GCSE Maths

Have always enjoyed maths and am sure that I can pass on my knowledge and love of it onto others if tutoring is required.

I have experience tutoring Maths.

Below are the latest reviews for Michael. 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.

Michael has looked after my children on numerous occasions and if anyone has reservations about hiring a male sitter, its time for a dramatic re-think! I would hire Michael over any female child carer I've ever used before. His level of professionalism (sadly lacking in so many others) truly has to be experienced. He's always polite and punctual and quick to respond to messages but his real charm is his interaction with the children. The children have so much fun with him, they're stood by the door waiting for him to arrive! He dedicates every bit of his boundless energy into entertaining them, playing games, making them laugh.
For a young guy, he has beautiful old school values and manners. No sitting in front of the television with the kids. He'll have them outside in the garden in the fresh air or playing fun games in the lounge.
Another bonus, when I got home once, he'd unloaded the dishwasher and put it all away! Amazing.
Truly the best child minder I've ever hired (and I've hired a lot).

Michael has just started taking my daughter to school of a morning and it has worked out very well. He is punctual, professional and friendly. He always replies to messages quickly. I really feel as though I can rely on him.

Michael was organised, arrived in good time for the handover and was willing to step in if bedtime didn’t go to plan. He was professional and even unloaded the dishwasher for us - which definitely earned him brownie points! Highly recommend his babysitting services, thanks Michael!
