About Me

Hi, I'm Heather. I'm looking for evening babysitting and occasional weekend work. I am a 23 year-old Medical Student at Cardiff University and have lived here now for 5+ years. I am looking for babysitting work to fit around my studies.

My Experience

I have over 7 years of experience as a regular babysitter and as a holiday and temporary nanny during university holidays.

I have experience looking after children aged 6 months - 11 years, both boys and girls. I have worked for a family after the tragic death of a parent left them needing childcare some evenings. I have 3 summer's worth of experience as a full-time nanny during various family holidays abroad. I have also provided daytime childcare for a local family during Summer holidays.

Additionally, I have some experience looking after children with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

I can provide excellent checkable references!

My Qualifications

I have a full clean CRB/DBS check (dated June 2017) as well as certificates in "Emergency First Aid at Work" dated June 2015, "Management of Choking, Spinal Injuries and Medical Emergencies" dated January 2018, as well as regular Basic First Aid training with the Medical School.

My Availability

I am available for evenings (after 6pm), or occasional weekend babysitting/nannying.

Unfortunately due to my studies I cannot do daytimes during the week.

Heather babysits for my daughters (5&7) one night a week for a couple of hours while I escape to yoga class.
The girls love her and can’t wait to get rid of me on a Thursday!
Heather rustles up supper, does homework with the 7 year old, reads bedtime stories, washes faces, cleans teeth and - by some act of god - has them both settled and fast asleep by the time I get in!!
She is trustworthy, punctual and my daughters think she is infinitely cooler than me (I’d have to agree 😂). We are thrilled we found her and I would highly recommend her services - but no you can’t have her on a Thursday 😂😬

Heather has been minding our 4 and 7 year olds regularly for a few months now and we have found her reliable, caring and very competent. Heather has a lovely way with the children and they both look forward to the evenings that she comes. Our youngest is often very shy with new people but she took to Heather right away. I would not hesitate to recommend her to others as she has done a fantastic job for us to date.

Heather was great with our two girls (age 2 and 4). She’s lovely and the girls loved playing with her. It’s the first time we’ve gone out and left them with anyone other than family and we had no concerns at all leaving Heather in charge of them.

Heather was fabulous from the outset. She is reliable, punctual, kind and intuitive with our boys. She embraced our busy schedules and always tried to help out even at last minute. I would not hesitate to recommend her and happy to chat if you wanted a verbal reference.
