****I am available in the Christmas holidays from Dec 27th to January 5th,
for nanny work or we no babysitting****
Hello, I am a bubbly energetic 53 year old "Mary Poppins", or so my friends call me.
I love children, love life and being a part of a growing family. I have worked in a boarding school for over 10 years and been around children all my life. I am a qualified DPNC. (Distinction in Post Natal Carer) see my documents attached. have a gorgeous golden retriever who adores children and often comes out for long walks and a play in the park with the children I care for. He is so kind, full of love and very obedient.
Many people and children who have been scared of dogs soon have their hearts melted and trust regained when they meet my gorgeous boy Ollie.
Ollie is a "Pets as Therapy" Dog. We are able to go into hospices, schools, hospitals, care homes etc to share some Ollie love, calmness and cuddles. And for his reward he gets endless tummy rubs.
Children really bond to me. I am able to meet them at their individual level of age and ability, bring the best out of their precious little characters. I bring calmness, stability and lead by example to the whole family.
I overflow with life childcare experience and all children warm to me as I am loving, fun, friendly, cuddly and nurturing. I am paediatric first aid trained.
I am currently available Thursday mornings, Friday & Saturday all day.
I am also free Friday,Saturday,Sunday evenings, and some half term and holidays to babysit.

I came across Linda on childcare.co.uk and she messaged me to offer her help with adhoc babysitting so my husband and I could have the odd night out! 😊 it was no problem at all to meet up and have a chat before hand and I had no issue booking straight away. So far Linda has babysat my two just once but I would love to book again when we need. Linda is extremely warm, caring and wonderfully experienced in all ages. She is very accommodating and professional. We are very happy to leave our two in her care. She is the first person other than family to look after them. I know it can be a daunting idea but be rest assured with Linda, I wouldn’t hesitate to book again 😍 a special lady xxx

Bless you and Thank you Emma for your beautiful words.
I am very blessed to know you all.
You are amazing parents.
From a grateful ❤.
Linda has been baby sitting for us since my son was 6 weeks old.
From day 1 she gave us peace of mind leaving him. She genuinely loves looking after him, she’s so patient with him, even when he was going through his colic phase she was calm and loving and was able to keep the crying to a minimum. She provides very detailed write ups after each baby sitting session, and she accommodates any requests we have eg following a strict routine. She reads to him, plays with him, talks to him, takes him for walks etc).
It’s a pleasure having her in my home. Mom guilt is a real thing but I’ve never felt judged or uncomfortable having her around.
She’s flexible around times and days she can babysit (assuming she’s not already booked elsewhere) and she accommodates last minute changes when we’ve asked.
We’re very grateful to have had her help over the last few months and would be very happy recommending her to other new mums.

Thank you Samantha for your very kind and thoughtful trusting review.
I feel very blessed to be your Son's babysitter, he is a gorgeous bundle of joy to care for.
Bless you all.🌺
We are so lucky to have Lin in our lives!
She has been caring for my two children for the last few years as both an after school nanny and evening babysitter.
The house is calm when I arrive home - children fed and focused on activities. They really enjoy her company and I know they are safe with her either at home or out and about.
Lin seems to really know each of my children well and responds to their needs. She plans activities and meals accordingly. She is easy to communicate with, so I know all her plans too. The kitchen is clean and tidy after she's cooked.

Thank you so much Caro for your heart felt words.
Thank you for trusting me with your beautiful girls.
I am richly blessed to be in your lives.
Linda has been fantastic. I have a 12 year old and a now 10 month old, she has babysat for me since our youngest was 3 months old. Both of the boys love her and I feel extremely happy and confident leaving her in charge.
With no extended family to lean on Lin has been my go to person for help with the baby. There is no one else I trust to feed him, put him to bed and to care for him. I can actually relax and not worry when she is with both boys. Lin is extremely reliable, friendly, warm and caring.
Lin has also made a real friend in my 12 year old and often has movie night with him. At 12 he feels he doesn’t need a sitter, Lin makes the evening fun and he really enjoys himself. I highly recommend Linda to any family wanting childcare for young or older children.

Thank you so much Natasha for the beautiful heart felt review.
I am truly blessed to be trusted by you both in sharing in both your boys lives.
I am looking forward to many more bubba cuddles and movie nights.I
Linda has been a wonderful nanny to my family over the last eight months and a great support to me in the home.
She has a calm yet fun loving temperament, manages to keep the children in line without ever raising her voice but through gentle explanation and distraction, and has a great sense of humour with an infectious laugh. My children adore her, and her dog Ollie, who they often take for walks.
From a personal perspective, Linda has been incredibly proactive in helping me run the house and keep on top of the children’s activities, meals and washing.
Linda has become a great friend to us all, and will be very missed. I would highly recommend her.
