About Me

My name is Ryan Simms, I’ve nearly finished an EYITT (Early Years Initial Teacher Training) course after I previously completed my Level 3 Early Years Educator. I also hold a paediatric first aid certificate and I am safeguarding trained. I originally had thought about having a career in computing, hence the IT courses I took at college and university, but I'm now interesting in teaching or childcare.

• Nursery Practitioner - Kids Planet Davenport. I also babysit for a few families in Stockport and Greater Manchester.

I also recently received a Certificate of Excellence from Childcare.co.uk for having an average rating of 5 stars from parents.

• Supply Practitioner - Cheadle Royal Day Nursery. I often worked part time while at university and full time while I had time off. I helped to provide care for children from birth up to age 5.

• I have babysat for many different families within the Stockport / Greater Manchester area. Again, I have looked after children from as young as 2 months all the way up to 13 years of age. I have had excellent feedback from all parents and even had some leave feedback on this website - all rated 5 star.

• Camp America - in the summer of 2017 and 2018 I worked on a summer camp in Washington DC teaching children, ages 7 - 15, on programming, circuitry and other various aspects of IT. I had great feedback from parents, and the family I stayed with enjoyed having me. I often looked after their two children.

I have a clean DBS check. Below, you can also see my full driving licence, which is clean. I also have my CV, qualifications and various other documents. You can request to see them if you want and I will also be happy to bring them with me to a face-to-face interview.

I adore working with children, seeing them learn, grow and develop it makes me so happy! I am a fun and loving person that many children enjoy being around. In this day and age, more and more males are working in childcare which I love and I want to show people that men and women are equal.

Although I’m not fluent in other languages, I have a GCSE in German and Spanish and have been studying French if you want your children to learn a second language. I also enjoy learning new languages and have some knowledge in various other languages.

My fiancée and I went out for a meal, he was on time and friendly. He made sure both babies were okay and did a great job of watching over them whilst we were out. Definitely will be using his services again, no complaints :)

Ryan looked after our 4 and 2 year old last night and not only did he get them both to bed in record time, but they both really liked him; my daughter warming to him surprisingly quickly for her.

We will definitely be booking him again.
