About Me

Hello! I have just relocated to Birmingham and will be starting a job as an SEN teaching assistant in September. In the mean time I would like to get as much childcare work as possible - maybe if you are in need of some holiday care or even just a baby sitter! I would be interested to hear if anyone is looking to secure a regular babysitter for evenings/weekends from September. I would say I am enthusiastic, patient, friendly and creative. I love working with children, playing games, telling stories and having lengthy conversations about pirates or fairies or anything else we can imagine!

My Experience

I spent two summers working on a special needs summer camp in America as a general counsellor. This involves full personal care of both adults and children with a range of developmental disabilities. It also means having the privilege of working with individuals to make their summer experience great fun with activities such as arts and crafts, campfire songs and swimming (what could be better right?!). Everyday was about having the most amount of fun possible, inventing new games and songs or coming up with stories and making everything into an adventure. I really enjoy encouraging children to be creative and think this experience helped teach me a thing or two about how to be engaging (as we were often tasked with looking after pretty big groups!).

In terms of baby sitting through this site I have looked after an absolutely adorable 9 month old several days a week for the duration of some of my degree. I have also done some work for an OFSTED registered childminder and in a nursery. I have lots of experience within my family as I have two cousins (aged 6 and 8) and a niece and nephew (aged 5 and 2) that I have looked after regularly since they were born. I also had a regular baby sitting job for two five year old twins every weekend for over a year.

My Qualifications

BSc in Neuropsychology (1:1), A levels - biology, chemistry and maths.
120 hour TEFL qualified.

My Availability

Currently available any time as I am just setting up. This may change in the coming months dependent on workload but I can discuss flexibility and can promise I will stick to any pre-agreed times for sure (no cancellations without warning I promise!).

Reviews

Below are the latest reviews for Kaitlin. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.

Kaitlin looked after our 9 month old baby for several days a week during the autumn of 2019, and from the moment we first met her, we knew our little one was in incredibly warm, capable, and caring hands. Kaitlin is everything you could ever want in a babysitter, exhibiting that perfect (but difficult to find!) mix of warmth and competence. Our only regret is that we aren't able to use her amazing services still, as we have moved abroad. If you are looking for incredibly wonderful childcare for your child or baby in North Wales, you can do no better than hiring Kaitlin!
