About Me

Edit 2- I will not be available for the next few months as I am expecting a baby in November 2021.

Edit 1- I work as an early years TA in the afternoons and early evenings during term time. Full availability during school holidays so I'm looking for a holiday care role ideally, and I'm also available for occasional babysitting.

Hi, I'm Eliza! I'm a level 3 qualified, OFSTED registered nanny and babysitter with a fun, gentle approach that respects children as individuals. I'm originally from Warwickshire but now live in York with my boyfriend and our labrador retriever Rufus. I am responsible, caring and creative with a silly sense of humour, a lot of patience, and a genuine love for children. In my spare time I do lots of knitting and sewing, and I also enjoy painting, hiking, baking, and all things outdoors!

Just like the children I care for, I have a lot of energy and I don't like to sit in front of screens all day, I would much rather be playing, making things together, going for walks, playing music together, building things or doing any other sort of fun activity that follows the interests of your children as they learn and develop!

I have extensive experience working as a nursery nurse, teaching assistant and a nanny with children from birth to 11 years, and I love working with children of all age groups. I have worked with English as an additional language, and also with a wide variety of complex special educational needs, disabilities, behavioral problems and learning difficulties through jobs and volunteering and have particular experience with children on the autistic spectrum. I love cooking and baking and would be happy to prepare age-appropriate meals for children, and to help keep your home clean and tidy- I know most of the time parents are trying to do a hundred different jobs at once so I'm happy to muck in and help however I can! I would also be more than happy to work in homes with pets.

My Experience

I am currently working as a TA, and have previously been a sole charge and shared care nanny for infant twins, and a nursery nurse for children between 3 months and 5 years old. I am also a regular babysitter for many children ranging from less than a year old, to preschool and primary aged children. I have volunteered for over 300 hours at two different primary schools one of which was a special school for children with complex SEND. (I loved it there!)

My Qualifications

Level 3 Childcare certificate (Early Years Educator) attained whilst working as a nursery nurse.

Currently studying in the 3rd year of a degree in Children's Education and Development on Tuesday evenings.

Certificate of Higher Education in English in Education from the University of York.

Up to date paediatric first aid certificate.

Safeguarding awareness training certificate.

Various CPD achievements including knowledge of empathic childcare techniques and behaviour management, phonics teaching, outdoor education, and promoting wellbeing, bodily autonomy and consent for young children.

My Availability

Free during all school holidays for holiday care and babysitting.
Babysitting availablity during term time on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays after 6.30 pm, and all hours during Saturdays and Sundays.

My Fees

  • Babysitting from £10.00 per hour
  • Nannying from £11.00 per hour (gross)

My fees are flexible depending on the kind of care required/ age and number of children/ time of day or night. I would tend to charge £10 per hour in most cases but this would depend on individual situations.

Eliza has been looking after our (currently 9 month old) twins for the past couple of months, both shared charge and sole charge. The twins really like her and she's a very calm and gentle presence even when one (or both!!) twins are in need of attention! The twins have enjoyed days out with her, and she has been very accommodating working to their/our routine and trying to keep the twins as in sync as possible! I would happily recommend her to anyone looking for a caring nanny for their little one(s).
