Hi, I'm Claire and I live just outside Lincoln. I love working with children; seeing them grow and being able to support their development and enhance their learning. I find it so rewarding when I have been able to have a positive impact on a child, and their family's, life.
I have worked in a preschool, catering for children aged 2-5 years old, for the past 10 years. For the last 4.5 years, my role has been Deputy Manager. I have been babysitting for many years and have looked after children between 3 months and 15 years old. I have experience of working with children with English as an additional language, speech delays, autism, ADHD, diabetes, epilepsy, anaphylaxis, asthma, etc.

Level 3 Diploma for the Children and Young People's Workforce (Early Years)

I was quite nervous as I had never had a babysitter before Claire, and my daughter was about 11 months old. Claire was so great with her, and my little one enjoyed her thoroughly. Claire is also very flexible and she is just excellent. Highly recommended!!
Response by Claire on 27/02/2020:
Thank you so much, I had a lovely time looking after her 😊
We started using Claire as a babysitter, when our youngest was at pre-school. All 100% positive, we felt that our children were in the safest of possible hands with someone that was completely reliable, trustworthy, professional and knowledgeable.
My daughter has an Epipen and we also felt safe in Claire's knowledge of anaphylactic shock and treatment.
We have recently stopped using Claire as my children are now older. But I would not hesitate to recommend her to others, children love her. She has a gentle, calm manner, genuinely cares about the children and keeps them entertained, happy and learning.
Claire is absolutely brilliant with children, our son loves spending time with her and she really captures children’s attention. She’s taught him so much in a short time, building his confidence and his knowledge through play so that he hasn’t realised that he’s learning.
I would highly recommend Claire for any babysitting or Nannying work. She is absolutely fantastic with children and my girls always look forward to seeing her. Claire is also very professional, reliable, trustworthy and always has a smile on her face.
Highly recommend Claire she is a lovely caring person who has looked after my children and she is professional but gentle.. I would recommend Claire 100 % for Nanny or babysitting . My little girl Sofia loved her and could not wait to see her the following day..
