About Me

Hi my name is Laura, I'm 21 years old and live in Lymm, Cheshire. I graduated university in June 2012 and am currently on a "gap year" spending some time exploring what I eventually want to pursue as my future career. I love spending time with children and have been babysitting for over 7 years. I would describe myself as a caring, kind, loving and energetic person who is versatile in whatever I choose to do. I am comfortable caring for young babies and toddlers as well as older children and have experience with both. I love spending time outdoors and have an active, healthy lifestyle. Finally, I genuinely enjoy looking after children and believe that it is incredibly important to have a passion for childcare as opposed to just doing it as a way of earning money.

I am currently a free member so cannot yet initiate messages with parents. Please message me if you are at all interested and I can respond. Thank you :)

My Experience

I began babysitting for family friends when I was around 14, for family friends who at the time had a two girls, aged 3 and 7 years. I loved spending time and getting to know the girls and had the perfect balance between responsibly but also acting as a friend who they could talk comfortably with and have some fun. I still babysit for this family now that the girls are 10 and 14 years old and maintain a close bond with them, picking up after school when needed, assisting with homework and preparing dinner etc. The oldest is profoundly deaf and so I have a lot of experience with how to communicate with her effectively and assist with her needs e.g. changing and checking hearing aids.
I also babysit for a family with a 2 year old boy and 3 year old girl so have experience dealing with multiple toddlers and how to divide my attention between them effectively. I have cared for them since the youngest was 5 months old so have experience with young babies, maintaining impeccable hygiene and safety standards and providing a fun and loving atmosphere when their parents are busy. I regularly babysit at night time and have plenty of experience with checking on and comforting babies and children when necessary.
I have my own car and a full driving license and have driven all the children I have babysat for in my car many times - references available if required.
Please ask me if you would like any more information.

My Qualifications

I have a bachelors degree from Warwick University - graduated June 2012. I have no formal childcare qualifications as it is not my chosen career but I enjoy caring for children immensely and have several reliable references on request.

My Availability

I am extremely available for daytime, evening or weekend babysit whether it be a regular commitment (specific days and times per week) or occasional babysitting.
I have a full drivers license and am available to pick children up from nursery/school or wherever needed.
I do have several babysitting jobs but only usually on occasional weekends and am looking for further opportunities in my local area.
