Just over three years ago I started my own business Little Care with Lilly
I am a hard working, experienced, enthusiastic, nature loving person who is dedicated to helping others and I feel my true calling is working with children. I'd love the opportunity to provide a safe, warm and educational environment catering to the needs of your unique little one.
I have over 13 years experience in Childcare working in nurseries and with individual families. I first started working in a nursery aged 17 and studied along side full-time work for my qualifications.
I have 7 years experience with both baby and toddler unit aged children (0-3yrs) and regularly babysat for the parents in the nursery.
Aside full-time employment I volunteered in my local youth club were I worked with young adults between the ages of 14-20yrs and started a regular dance workshop for the youths.
I've also worked one-to-one with various aged children and a 28 year old adult with specific needs.
My last role as supervisor for Foundation Phase aged children (3-8yrs) was a nursery in Cardiff where I worked nearly 2 years.
When I first started my business I had a number of different clients where I provided various hours required for the families, such as 5am start before school with school drop offs and after school care.
I worked one year for my first full time family with their three children ages 1, 3 and 7. The youngest was 6 months when I began so I assisted him through weaning onto solid foods, gradually cut down nap time and daytime bottles and encouraged his gross motor skills (crawling to walking).
The middle child was 2 when I began so I encouraged her speech and language development, potty training and beginning nursery school. The eldest was 6 when I began and has autism so I assisted him with his homework, encouraged his socialising with his siblings and encouraged him to become independent as much as possible.
My duties required were before school assistance, caring for the youngest two children while the eldest child was attending school and after school care until the parents would come home in the evening. These full days would require house work, laundry, cooking, preparing and providing all of the children's meals including school lunches, organising their toys and bedrooms to make regular activity changes throughout the day including any craft activities and organising walks and trips out with the children to develop every area of learning.
As well as providing any actual care the children needed such as if they required medicine, keeping on top of their hygiene (bathing, nail clipping, tooth brushing, skincare, etc.) and getting them ready for each day and evening ready for bedtime.
Please feel free to read the review (on my profile) from this family.
Currently I work for a family with two girls and have been with them nearly two years.
My duties include the same as written above for the first full time family. As well as taking the children to all their extra activities; dancing, swimming, piano lessons, playgroups, etc. Also walking the their dog.

Lilly has been with us 4 days a week for the last 12 months and we honestly would not have coped with out her.
Lilly joined our family as our live out Nanny when our youngest was only 6 months old. We were very reluctant to leave him with anyone at such a young age but as soon as we met Lilly we knew she was the perfect match for our family.
Lilly looks after all 3 of our children, our 2 youngest full time and our eldest before and after school. Our eldest child has additional needs but this has never been an issue for Lilly and we are always confident and happy leaving the 3 of them in her capable and loving care.
Lilly has helped wean our youngest from breast milk on to solids, potty train our middle child ready for pre-school (which Lilly now takes her to and picks her up from) and has stayed with us long enough to see our youngest start walking.
Lilly always goes up and beyond what we have ever asked of her, helping with washing, emptying the dishwasher, changing the children’s bedding and keeping the house clean and tidy.
She truly is a star and our children could not have been in better hands, she will be truely missed by all of us when she relocates. The Griffiths family.
