About Me

I am a babysitter with a qualification in additional support needs which qualifies me to work with children and have specalised experience working with Additional Support Needs.
I am very passionate about working with children and have dedicated 3 years in college and/or working in nursery/primary schools with children. My experience is with children as young as 18 weeks to 12 years old.
Childcare has always been a passion of mine and it is a job that I feel happy, positive and enjoyable about during my time of childcare.
I am looking to take on a regular babysitting job after not having worked in a while due to health issues.
Outside of childcare, my hobbies include reading, arts and craft as well as yoga. I have a pet jack russell as well as a pet hedgehog.

My Experience

I have experience working in a school classroom with 4 to 6 year olds with additional support needs as well as occasional working across the school with age ranges from 6 years up to 12 year olds. I done this role as part of my college placement for 1 school year.
I also have experience working in various different nurseries with children whos ages ranged from 18 weeks to 5 years. I done this role as part of a bank staff team for a year before taking on a fulltime nursery job again aged ranges from 18 weeks to 5 years before I was unfortunately made redudant due to covid.

My Qualifications

HNC in Additional Support Needs in which I did units in communication difficulties, human development, protection of possible harm and abuse plus interpersonal skills.
I did a placement working with children who have additional support needs who ranged from 4 years old to 6 years old.

I have also completed a course in paedaitric first aid which is valid until January 2023.

I am also completing several courses through the childcare.co.uk online college and various webinars that childcare.co.uk offers to enhance my knowledge and improve my care to ensure I am offering the best care to you and your family that I can.

My Availability

I am currently fairly flexible within my hours so can often work on short notice as well as evenings and weekends.
I do not drive so would need appropiate notice for public transportation or arranging a taxi - this time will vary depending distance from me although a minimum 25 minutes is required regardless of distance.
I currently do not offer overnight sessions due to not being able to drive and getting public transport and taxis during this time is a lot harder. However, I would be willing to discuss this further if you think it is suitable for you.

My Fees

  • Babysitting from £8.00 per hour

I do aim to keep my prices low. I understand how expensive childcare can be so I am willing to discuss my prices even further with you and work out a price that is suitable for us both.
Prices depend on how many children I am looking after as well as if you require any housework or have any pets that I will also be looking after.
I do not offer discounts for full days although as mentioned I am willing to discuss prices, if necessary.
