Hello, My name is Wayne and I use the name treasure the moments childcare to provide services to families in the local community.
Doula / Birthing Partner / Maternity
Sleep Consultant / training
To me, having someone look after your children isn’t simply being in the house while parents are out. It’s about providing childcare! Which is all about trust, safety and sticking to the family’s routine and rules.
I promote healthy eating through fun snacks and meals. I am confident in the kitchen and more than happy to prepare food for the children if you require it as part of the duties. I am experienced when it comes to "fussy" eaters and can change that fairly quickly if you wish. No more preparing 3 different meals! :-)
I encourage children to be as independent as possible by allowing them to do as much as they can themselves while being supervised so they are safe. It is hard to give an example because all children are different and it depends on age etc. Even babies at the age 9+ months can hold things so whether its a tube of cream at nappy changing time or a 3 year old tidying up their plate after food time by putting in the sink/kitchen side.
I’m all about the outdoors! There are learning opportunities everywhere and I use these to nourish, encourage and aid in your child’s development.
I feel it is important to constantly provide environments where children can thrive and exceed all their milestones.
Children tend to warm to me instantly as I have worked with them in one way or another for over 15 years.
I have worked with children of all ages but the bulk of my experience is with newborns to 4 years old.
So yeah, I have a lot of experience, Not including my own two children; my son who is 8 years old and my daughter who was born September 2022.
I have worked in maternity in hospitals as well as paediatric wards and still do the occasional shift in the local hospitals.
I am still subscribed to the DBS Update Service and have full DBS clearance.
I chose to rework my career choice during the pandemic and combined the two things I love! Photography and Working with Children, so now I do both!
I resigned from my registration with Ofsted in 2015.
Instead of providing childcare at my own premises (like I did previously) I now work where the parents need me on a adhoc arrangement around when I am not doing my photography commitments.
I live close to Castlepoint in Bournemouth with my wife Fiona and we have two small dogs. I have a 7 seater vehicle with appropriate business insurance and a clean driving licence.
I remain self employed and you do not need to worry about "employing me" as I sort out my own tax and national insurance at the end of each financial year. I issue an invoice and you pay it by bank transfer or PayPal. It is as easy as that!
I have over 15 years experience with children of all ages and references can by provided from past customers.
I have worked in the NHS.
I am a trained Associate Practitioner healthcare professional.
My main areas of interest are:
Accident & Emergency
As you may already know, I am also a Photographer!
Parents often comment that they knew they’d receive photos, but didn’t realise they would be getting free professional standard photographs alongside their child spending time with me.
You also get a healthcare professional and a Published Photographer!
I was previously registered with ofsted as a childminder but resigned when I started photography as I no longer offer childminding and therefore do not care for children at my own premises.
I provide care in the child’s home, hotel, days out etc.
I hold a full and enhanced DBS clearance which is subscribed with the update service.
Thank you for reading and if you would like to make a booking please don’t hesitate in contacting me!

Wayne did some sleep training when my children were younger. I was struggling so much with exhaustion and tiredness it was an absolute godsend when he started his sleep program with my family. We went from having the children in our bed to them being in their own bed AND SLEEPING THROUGH THE NIGHT within a few days!
He really is as good as the other reviews say. I completely trusted him and very happy he is still working with children. If you are considering someone for childcare, Wayne is the obvious choice. With his experience in the medical scene as well you know the precious bubas are in great hands.
Response by Treasure on 07/08/2023:
Thank you! I’m so pleased that it helped. Hope the girls are still behaving themselves! Teenage years on the way….! Hehe
Wayne is a treasure! super cool, hard working and dependable! He was an amazing male role model for my daughter back when he was a childminder!
He is comical, trustworthy and very good at his job! He takes the safety and wellbeing so super seriously but with a laid back attitude. To him, safeguarding children is paramount. Do not worry about him being a male. I was initially, but honestly, he is better with children than most of the mums I know! He had to take my daughter to A&E because she wouldn't stop being sick and he was worried about her fluids/hydration. He acted in a calm and speedy way that she was cared for expertly. the nurse told me I'm really lucky to have a childminder with such knowledge because she could have Ben
come very unwell if left to it.
Although this was many years ago, having just seen his profile I had to leave a review for him!
Lizzy will be needing a babysitter soon and I'm delighted to see that Wayne is still in childcare!
Wayne is incredible with my two boys. He is punctual, reliable, kind, engaging and supportive! I appreciate not having to worry about my boys whilst I’m at work, and I know that they’re being very well taken care of. My two love him picking them up from school and enjoy their time with him. Thank you for everything Wayne, you’re a superstar ⭐️
Wayne is very trustworthy. He looked after our little one as we had Something come up unexpectedly. From the moment we got in contact, Wayne was professional and friendly.
We were unsure what to do as never had to use childcare before.
I certainly didn’t think of a male to care for my child by default but he really is SO GOOD with children.
Don’t let the fact his is a man put you off. When you meet him you will see how approachable and kind he is.
When we first spoke he wasn’t at all pushy and actively made sure to not pressure any decisions by insisting we contact him again after we had time to digest the information he gave us. That was a nice touch because it was very appreciated.
Choosing childcare is so hard but honestly, if you have read his profile, make sure you message him. He will be your godsend. When we met him for the first time he got down to our son’s level and you could tell there was a bond. He loved Wayne playing and spending time with him. His focus was completely on our child.
He is competent and trustworthy. He provided copies of his driving licence and passport and had his DBS with him which we checked online and showed as valid and current and showed us the originals (which was excellent as we know that everything is in order).
Nothing is too much trouble for Wayne and he will do everything to ensure anyone in his care is safe and having a blast.
He accepted bank transfer and invoiced us for the service.
Thanks for making the process effortless and not time consuming as time is so important to us.
10/10 would recommend to anyone looking for childcare.
Wayne isn’t just a nanny.. he is a cook, a photographer, a nurse, a playmate, someone that children LOVE! a responsible person, trustworthy, an entertainer, a gifted person, very likeable, tidy, a big kid(hehe) and very dependable.
Wayne really helped me out earlier on in the year and I don’t know what I would have done without him. Thanks Wayne. The Super Manny!
