I currently work in Cardiff and Newport so I’m used to travelling for work.

I have completed a foundation degree in childhood studies level 5.
I'm hard working, reliable, caring and honest.
I have worked as a sole charge nanny for over 13 years and in that time I have worked with 8 lovely families and built up bonds with both parents and children.
I like nothing more then to take the children I care for out to soft play centres, play groups, parks and long walks.

I have also completed a sleep training consultant course, which enables me to offer sleep training services to parents.

I have over 13 years of experience working as a sole charge nanny for children from newborn to sixteen years, twins and siblings.
My first nanny role was for twin girls who I looked after 4 days a week for just over a year, they were 5 months when I started.
One of my positions was with a family for nearly four years looking after three boys. (Ages 8 months five & six years old when I started) please look at my reviews for a reference from this position.
My last position which was in Cardiff, came to an end in July 2017, I was with the family for Nearly 5 years.
I looked after 3 children, when I started the children were three years and thirteen months.
Mum then went on to have another baby and I stayed on as a mothers help to the baby and had sole charge of the other two children
Mum then went back to work just after a year and I then became sole charge to all three children.

Alongside this position I worked in a playgroup for just over a year and in this time it enabled me to gain a vast amount of experience and knowledge on the foundation phase which I feel then benefited me in my nanny career.
I currently work for to different families one family in Newport I look after twin girls who are 4 (2 when I started) and their 2 year old brother (one when I started) my other family in Cardiff I look after a 4 and 2 year old.

We have two children and needed someone to care for them while we worked on weekends.
Our eldest is autistic so needed someone who would be able to care for him and our bubbly 5 year old daughter, and Katie has fitted right in.
We are so pleased we found her.
We feel incredibly lucky counting on Katie as a Nanny. We do not have any family around and when we needed to leave our baby for the first time it was really daunting as we are first time parents and were very nervous about leaving our son with someone who we barely knew but Katie was lovely since the very first second, she visited us before taking the job with her impressive curriculum in Childcare and she showed from the very beginning confidence, professional manners and knowledge about childcare.
When we go out, she is always updating us sending photos, videos. She is confident to take him for outdoors activities which we found really nice and give us reassurance that he’s having a wonderful time as well as us.
Katie is now part of our lives, anytime that we need to go out we feel so relieved knowing that our son will be safe and at the same time will have a good time.
She has that special magic with children, our little one connected with her instantly and we cannot be happier and more grateful.
I would highly recommend Katie to anyone. She is just brilliant.
Katie visited our house prior to babysitting to meet my two daughters aged 5 & 2 years which was lovely. They warmed to her straight away and were very comfortable in her company. She is a fantastic babysitter, very punctual, trustworthy, experienced, and we can relax and enjoy our evening knowing our children are in safe hands. Would highly recommend. Thank you!
We heard about Katie through a friend and hired her for babysitting when we needed to leave our 5 month old for the first time. We hadn’t met before but as soon as she arrived I felt comfortable with her. She was really reassuring and so knowledgeable on all aspects of childcare so she made me feel at ease. She knew I was nervous so kept me updated through the evening, sending photos of my baby on the monitor etc which allowed me to relax. We’ve used Katie several times since then and have found her brilliant. She coped really well with our baby even when he was having a difficult time sleeping and was able to comfort him back to sleep, which even we were struggling with at the time. She also gave loads of advice on how to improve his sleeping which was really beneficial. She’s warm, friendly and very easy to talk to. I trusted her instantly and would highly recommend her to anyone else looking for a babysitter.
After becoming unwell and in need of emergency childcare, we found Katie. She took sole charge of my two young daughters on a temporary basis while I was recovering.
It was an unsettling time for my children and I was anxious at the prospect at leaving my children with someone we were unfamiliar with. However, Katie was kind and thoughtful towards them, took them on some lovely days out and ensured they were well cared for and had a great time.
Katie was professional and punctual and always updated me throughout the day. I can highly recommend her based on our experiences.
