About Me

My name is Nathan; 42 years old. I would describe myself as a extremely caring, reliable, trustworthy, fun and creative, and find that I can more easily bond with children than I often can with adults. I am providing babysitting, childcare and a nanny service between Cardiff and Port Talbot.

I have completed my Level 3 certification in Childcare, and also in the process of adopting a child of my own. In the meantime, I find every opportunity to care for, and gain additional experience with working with children.

My Experience

I have been babysitting since I was 16, which included a large family of cousins, and in particular my younger step sister since the separation of parents. This meant that I needed to spend a lot of time looking after her from the age of 8, which has been the most special and rewarding experience of my life. We have participated in many day activities and adventures, helping with homework, picking up from school, cooking, cleaning and dealing with illness.

Friends often look to me for occasional babysitting duties from time to time. I have also entertained at many children's parties, worked as a Floating Support Worker, and well as volunteering for children's services at Shaw Trust, as well as Action for Children charity events such as "Sleepout"/"Byte Night". DBS/CRB checks for all job roles (since 2001) have been a requirement when working in classrooms or support offices.

Below are the latest reviews for Nathan. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk.

Nathan began nannying for my two aged 4 and 5 last year on a daily basis after school and evenings and very quickly became a trusted and loved member in their lives. There is no one I would prefer to watch them in my absence as I know they are guaranteed to have lots of fun, make up silly games and enjoy spending time with an adult who enjoys playing as much as they do. Nathan is punctual, reliable, kind, trustworthy, communicates any issues and not afraid to be involved in the practical sides such as cooking, cleaning, bed times etc. I cannot praise him highly enough and would definitely recommend his services 😊

I couldn't ask for better, our kids (9yo Jess, and 5yo Alex) took to him straight away, and often ask when he will be coming back. At first I was nervous to seek a carer online, but Nathan has been very professional from the start, as well as reliable even when I have called on him at the last moment a few times this month. He is very attentive with the kids and full of energy, as well as easy to approach and provided some great childcare advice. I wish we could afford to have him as a permanent Nanny (or Manny!).
