About Me

UPDATED AVAILABILITY

I am fairly flexible recently for the next month but then I’ll be moving to Madrid for work.

I am a very reliable and responsible
individual, who works well with children of all ages. Although I am only 19 years old, I have had a lot of experience with looking after children, and I am very mature for my age. I ensure to speak to you, over the phone or in person, before any arrangements for babysitting are made, and preferably meet the children so they are comfortable and familiar of me before being left alone with me. I am able to engage well with children and have fun with them, whilst also managing well safe-keeping, and a healthy level of discipline.

I am more than happy to help with any schoolwork. I have tutored children for KS2 and KS3 previously.
I have attained 10 GCSEs A*-C and currently working towards my A-levels in the sciences.

I am comfortable with doing school pick-ups, I have my own car and have been driving for almost 2 years.

After school, evening babysitting usually involves bringing the children home and cooking for them, completing any homework that needs to be done. We will play a few games, I like to try and engage with the children as much as possible and keep sociable and do tend to limit how much time is spent watching TV and playing on tablets etc. You may like to explain your usual home routine to me, and I am more than happy to follow this.

Occasional evening babysitting I like to plan a few activities, especially times like now when we are nearing the festive period! I tend to bring things with me that are tailored to your child’s needs and preferences. This could be arts and crafts, games, indoor or outdoor activities. On the initial meeting I will get to know the child to suss out what I feel they would enjoy. (I will run any ideas past parents first to check they are suitable).

I offer all day babysitting over the holidays. I think it’s important to keep children engaged so we may plan days out if this is feasible! I work on a shopping complex that has a lovely little art and craft place where I am able to get a discount, and I also teach Taekwondo to children which is great fun for all ages and abilities, I have been able to persuade a handful of the children I have babysat to join!

I am more than happy, if your child is involved certain out of school clubs, to follow this and take them to and from these, I will try and keep a child’s routine as similar to normal as possible.

Prices vary depending on number of children, distance, and what is expected (eg. I have been asked to do cleaning/ housework previously, i am happy to do this but it will be at extra cost)

I usually charge between £8.50 - £9.50 an hour for 1-2 children.

Please note, if babysitting is later than 12am, there may be a price surge of £1 extra an hour, or if babysitting 3 children or more.

Babysitting dates booked further than 3 weeks in advance will have a £5 non-refundable deposit due to being cancelled last minute in the past and turning down others that have been booked on the same date. Sorry!

I think children are great and love being able to help out. I can guarantee your children will be in safe hands and will have a good time. I always make sure the child’s time with me has been enjoyable.

Please don’t hesitate to drop me a message if you are interested in my services.

My Experience

I have been a young leader at brownies girlguiding association for 5 years. This involves including the girls aged 5-10 in many different games, communicating and empathising with them, and widening their knowledge educationally and socially, and also advise them about the future and the outside world. I also had a Saturday job, where I helped teach art and design lessons to children aged 3-13. I understand the correct way to handle a wide range of behaviour by children from many different ages, as I realise the importance and Impact this has on a child, especially in their future.

My Qualifications

I have completed DBS Check and also am a girlguiding leader, which provides me with many attributes relating to appropriate childcare.
I also help to instruct Taekwondo to children aged 4-12 which I enjoy thoroughly.

My Availability

Since I have gone back to school to gain further A-levels, availability is somewhat limited on weekdays, my availability is as follows:
Monday evenings 5:30 onwards
Wednesday evenings 5:30 onwards
Thursday evenings 4:30 onwards
Friday evenings 4:30 onwards
Saturdays
Sunday evenings 6pm onwards

I work Sunday daytime, however if I have 2 weeks notice I may be able to swap shifts, so it’s worth asking a date and I will get back to you ASAP

Available full time throughout school holiday periods.

Molly is a very polite, professional and trustworthy babysitter. She has looked after our 1 and 4 year old daughters and is very good in adapting to kids needs as per their ages. My 4 yr old loves colouring and reading story books with Molly. I would highly recommend her.

Molly is a lovely, sweet and very polite young lady. She is reliable and trustworthy, she has looked after our two boys aged 1&4. Throughout the evening she kept in touch sending regular updates as to how things were at home. Both our boys are very fond of Molly and took to her quickly, our eldest even woke up the following day asking for her. We will definitely be using Molly again and highly recommend her services!

I hired Molly to watch my children, ages 8 and 11, on several occasions and we all have found her fun, fair and very capable. She pays attention to my schedule requests, and the kids enjoy playing games with her and having a good laugh. I highly recommend Molly!
