Hi all, my name is Alex and I am currently an early years practitioner working in a private nursery as a nursery room leader for toddlers/preschoolers however I also work with children aged 0-5 yrs. I have also had a lot of experience working with those 5 years and up. I generally work 40 hours a week which is why I am only able to provide childcare during weekday evenings (starting time depends on your location) and also on the weekends (Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday). I love working with children and always have, my passion grows stronger everyday as I am able to support their educational, social and emotional needs. I am able to provide care and attention to each unique child and also follow and practice The Early Years Foundation Stage Principles to support each child's learning and development. I believe in not only caring for the child but supporting their learning while in my care. I am trustworthy and reliable and would always provide notice in advance if I am not able to turn up to an agreed appointment (which is rare). I have a level 3 diploma in childcare along with other training and qualifications such as working with children who may have special educational needs, first aid, epi-pen training, phonics training, 11 GCSES and 3 A-Levels, and I am also the designated safeguarding lead for my setting. I have an up to date DBS and no criminal offences. I do not smoke or drink (also I do NOT drive unfortunately.)
Please feel free to contact me if you are in need of childcare on the weekends/weekday evenings. It would be my pleasure to assist you and your family.

- Woodberry Down Children’s Centre (all ages)

Alex has recently begun babysitting my 2 sons (8 months and 4 years) over an evening, on a fortnightly basis.
Alex cares for both of my boys sole charge including putting them to bed (which is no easy feat)! They both adore her with older boy always asking for Alex in the morning of the night she has babysat.
Alex is very reliable, caring, flexible, professional and experienced and is the right balance between being in charge and being very nurturing with my boys.
I would highly recommend her as a babysitter / carer for any child!
Alex has been with us as a part-time babysitter for over a year, and we highly recommend her. She keeps our 14 month-old daughter entertained and educates her. Alex is well aware of safety and also very helpful with regards to the "little things" that make our life easier.
Alex is so humble and professional , she has worked with us since my son was 10 months and is still working with us, she gets along with my son so well , that now my 1 year old sees her as auntie Alex , my family love her to bits and ive reccommended her to a few friends and family. If you are looking for a professional, friendly and very caring and tidy Baby sitter Alex is the best person.
I have a nine and a 13yo, so they are not easily won over buy people. They loved Alex, she’s just the right balance of in charge and engaging! The younger asked when she was coming again!
From my perspective, Alex was straight forward and easy to make arrangements with. She was here in plenty of time for me to get out. I felt totally at ease leaving the kids with her.
Alex is very caring, reliable and professional. My children took to her straight away and really enjoyed the time they spent with her. Alex took the time to travel to me for our first meeting and brought all her documentation..I felt at ease and trusted her instantly. Whilst my children were in her care I felt relaxed and she kept me updated which I appreciated. Cannot praise Alex enough, and would use her services again.
