About Me

Loving, caring, happy, reliable, responsive, resourceful, intelligent, organised, fun, fit, outdoorsy, patient, vigilant, flexible, mature person. I am open, authentic and utterly trustworthy. Full clean driving licence, keen competent cyclist (trained cycle ride leader), strong swimmer and qualified pool lifeguard, keen interest in nutrition/healthy eating, happy with arty/messy play, keen linguist. I love singing/dancing with and reading to children. A naturally nurturing and protective person. A champion of equality of opportunity and cultural inclusivity, mutual respect, fairness and common sense. I am striving to live sustainably, working hard towards zero-waste and eliminating single use plastics from my daily life. I’m not put off taking children outdoors by adverse weather as long as we’re all cosily dressed! Very keen on minimising screen-time and optimising opportunities for outdoor social play, adventures and cuddles with books. I’m also very compassionate around any parent struggling with the demands of parenthood and am happy to offer support. I have a huge number of interests from Hebridean history to chart music, philosophy to cycling, crosswords to travelling and will respond to and help cultivate your child’s interests no matter what they are. I will learn about, respect and uphold your family faith and dietary choices with your children, whatever they are.

My Experience

33 years childcare including raising own 3 children (now happy, healthy, loving, successful adults). Previously registered childminder (have not renewed registration since moving house), former nanny and babysitter. Experienced with newborns/tiny babies, toddlers, children and teens. Used to working with food allergies/intolerances/sensitivities, selective eaters and cultural dietary preferences. 13 years as a classroom assistant and school chaperone.

My Qualifications

Long term (currently inactive) childminding registration. Qualified experienced EFL Teacher. Certificate in Nutrition and Public Health. Lapsed Full First Aid Certificate - willing to update. Self-bestowed knighthood for boundless love, patience and tenacity in all parenting and childcare rôles over 30+ years

My Availability

I am now looking for a live-in position. I’m flexible about working days/evenings now, as long as I am able to have two full consecutive days off per week to spend with my family. Weekends are no problem, with the above caveat. I would also be able to be flexible and cover extra ad hoc hours by arrangement with reasonable notice. Evening babysitting, overnights and school holidays are all possible as part of the right live-in position.

My Fees

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

Negotiable. However, I know how valuable my experience and service will be to parents and the children, so I would expect a salary at the upper end of normal market rates. For a live-in position I would ask only for a private room (happy to share everything else) with board included, the reasonable cost of which I would expect you to deduct from my salary. When living in, I would expect to do my reasonable share of the routine cleaning on top of my paid rôle duties.
