About Me

Ofsted-Registered Nanny offering Babysitting, English & Drama Tuition and Pet-Sitting & Dog-Walking

My Experience

I am looking to help out any individual or family with children and/or pets in Kirklees.

Currently training in BA Musical Theatre at Chester’s Hammond School, I will be returning to Holmfirth for Easter, June to August and weekends (I tutor Saturday afternoons).

I am DBS-checked with a 12 Hour Paediatric First Aid. And with a Music Theatre ALCM, Grade 5 in Piano and 8 in Singing and Acting and 'A's in A-Level Drama and English Literature, I love working with arts and crafts, telling stories and making music and drama. I would love to be given the opportunity to inspire your children's imaginations!

I am fully equipped to provide tuition in English and/or Drama up to GCSE level and Acting for any audition, exam or performance. I also have A*s in GCSE French, Maths and English Language so can work on any of these with your child if you wish during childcare or tuition!

I have worked with a range of children both from the Huddersfield area and asylum-seeking families through our Junior Church program as Messy Church Co-ordinator. My work has taught me how to care for and play with non-English-speaking toddlers and how to teach and support a group of 5-7 year-olds, some with ADHD and autistic tendencies.

My holiday club work with up to 40 children aged 4-14 resulted in employment by a busy working mother to look after her three home-schooled children aged 5-9 each week. Since then my experience has come from regular nannying, nursery and ad hoc babysitting settings.

Most recently, I have begun tutoring 3 children in Primary English and Maths for SATS and am offering pet-sitting and dog-walking in addition. I have loved and lost my golden retriever of 12 years, much to the disappointment of our two cats, and enjoy how providing childcare has often involved the pets too!

Interested or have questions?
Please message me and I look forward to hearing from you!

Below are the latest reviews for Miss Ruth. 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.

Ruth is a nanny for my two young girls age 6 and 8, on a sporadic basis.
My two daughters' were very hesitant about being looked after someone they did not know, however, Ruth has really tried hard to build a rapport with my daughters and she has quickly become well-loved. They are forever telling me about the stories Ruth has told them, and how funny she is - they really look forward to the days she comes!
Ruth is always punctual even though I often require her to arrive before 7am (and she doesn't drive!), and always has the girls to school/breakfast club on time.
I'd have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Ruth to future employers.
