About Me

**Thank you for reading through my page! Due to the current pandemic and personal reasons, I have decided to close for the time being. I will hopefully be reopening August/September 2021 for Ad Hoc, overnight, weekend and evenings/babysitting**.

** COVID19**
I offer a very small setting, caring for no more than 4 children , also full time in a cabin in an area of garden exclusively for childminding, all Government guidelines are being followed and implemented. My husband also works from home**

Hello,
My name is Linda and I am a mum to 4 fantastic children aged 19,18,15 and 9 years of age. I am also married and live in the outskirts of Oxford. I have previously worked as a TA in a local Foundation stage class within a local semi rural primary school. I have extensive experience in caring for children of all ages and enjoy their company. I have a large garden, with lots of outdoor play equipment which is very safe and private.

I also have some dogs called cavachons (very small breed of King charles spaniel/bichon), they are extremely friendly and love nothing more than giving and receiving hugs and kisses-although they will be kept away from the children in an enclosed area (outhouse buildings) during opening hours.

I enjoy the theatre and everything associated with the arts, so lots of singing and dancing and being silly with the children :)

Please enquire for childminding rates!

Babysitting rates £12phr

I am also registered to care for children overnight, so you can have that night or weekend away.

Thanks for reading!!

We couldn’t be happier with Linda. She is super kind and thoughtful, and our daughter adored her from the very first moment. Linda has treated our daughter as one more member of her family, and that means a lot for us, making us feel super confident everyday. And, she always keeps us updated with the activities of the day ;)
Linda is starting a new project at home as a childminder, and has prepared a beautiful summer house in the garden, that provide a great environment for the kids. Honestly, we couldn’t recommend her enough!!

Linda was great, arrived on time, and was very calm and kind around our baby. She made sure our baby was well looked after and messaged us to let us know she was asleep and all was well which was great for reassurance. I would certainly use Linda again and recommend to our friends. Thanks Linda

Linda was fantastic with our two little ones (aged 3 and 1) - arrived punctually and has a very natural and kind way with children - already in the first few minutes she had smoothed over a little thing that my 3yo was upset about, and I felt very confident leaving them with her. The next day they were telling me all the fun things they had been doing! Would definitely recommend her as a wonderful babysitter.

Linda has been babysitting for us for nearly a year now with our 2 and a half year old daughter. As a first time Mum I was quite nervous at the prospect of having an evening out, but Linda clearly has extensive experience with children and put me at ease straightaway. She’s very friendly, reliable and she feels like a friend to us now. She was also great at keeping me up to date with regular texts the first few times! Linda has also been great with our dog, Nancy, and kept her company in the evenings when we’ve been out. Thanks Linda and see you soon!

If you’re looking for a reliable babysitter or childminder that’s great with children - look no further, you’ve found her!
