About Me

MY CURRENT AVAILABILITY (during school closure period):

* All day babysitting during term-time
* School holidays
* Ad-hoc babysitting in the evenings

* Afterschool care - Mon, Tue, Wed, Thurs
* School holidays - dates TBA
* Ad-hoc babysitting in the evenings

I have just finished working for a family where both parents (key workers) have started to work from home and the kids can go to school, so looking for a new family to help - hopefully long term but will consider short-term and ad-hoc.

Take care and keep safe!


I work as a private nanny not a childminder, references available.
I am an experienced and qualified teacher and LSA.
Mum of two beautiful girls who are happy and accomplished individuals.
I love working with and looking after children and will look after your children with care and diligence.
I know that trust is essential and will fully respect parents' directions.
I believe that communication is essential.
I am punctual and dependable and have never missed appointments.
I believe in children having fun while they grow and learn but also in setting good manners, routine and boundaries.
I am prepared to help with homework, practising for 11+, making meals and light chores around the house.
I have my own car and can drive your children home and to clubs, if needed.

As I work in school I have a valid Enhanced DBS, and am up-to-date with Safeguarding and academic curriculum, Prevent training, FGM and other policies.

We moved from London 3 years ago, and I absolutely love the outdoor life living in Tunbridge Wells.

Thank you for reading my profile:)

To Whom It May Concern:

It is my pleasure to recommend Lydia Fahey as a babysitter.

She watches our 5 y.o. daughter twice a week for several months. Our daughter loves her and is always excited to see her. On Fridays Lydia brings her two daughters Lily and Maisie. The girls are well behaved and love to play with our daughter. She often asks when they will come again.

I know Lydia since last year. She was working at Bishops Down primary school as TA, and in fact sometimes she was working in our daughter’s nursery class. Lydia was also in our son’s year 5 class. I was lucky to find Lydia for babysitting who is a professional and who l can trust.

Lydia is always on time, cheerful and ready to engage our daughter in crafts, drawing, reading books or other fun activities.

She always follows our guidelines in regard to our daughter.

We can’t recommend Lydia enough. She is responsible, professional and experienced.

Hi Aleks

Thanks so much for finding time to give me this positive review.

All the best for you and the family!


Very happy to leave our 19 month old son with Lydia. She is attentive and caring puts him totally at ease. Took him to the park and had a picnic😀The first time we left him there were no tears and he had a lovely happy day.
Will definitely use Lydia regularly for babysitting.
