About Me

I currently work as a teaching assistant so therefore I am now only available for after school work, occasional weekends and school holiday work in the Salcombe/South Hams area. I am also highly experienced in wedding nannying after doing this for several years back in Surrey where I have recently moved from. I have great experience with providing an excellent service, taking care of new child/ren so you can completely relax when needing cover. I really enjoy taking care of new little ones whilst using my extensive experience to quickly relax both parents and child! I also have a passion for travel and readily adapt to new surroundings. I can offer weekend babysitting and proxy parenting so you can go away for the night, knowing your children are in the most capable hands and your home/pets will be well looked after!
As a babysitter/nanny, I have excellent toys and resources which I bring along to engage children immediately including my amazing puppet song bag, treasure basket, storybooks and relax kids resources and books if children need extra help at bedtime, all geared towards the age and stage of development of your child. I worked as a nanny, registered childminder and babysitter for 18 years and worked as a relax kids coach for 18 months. I am also a mum to my two daughters aged 20 and 23 and I’m married. I am energetic, fun, trustworthy, love nature and the outdoors, enjoy running and the gym, have a bubbly personality, am reliable and have a calm and positive vibe, loving babies and children of all ages with toddlers and preschoolers my favourite age. My first nanny job was working with a family who had newborn to 8 month twins, and two children under 4. My previous permanent nanny jobs include working for a professional family, looking after 3 boys and a family dog, in a housekeeper/nanny role and as a nanny in Farnham looking after two girls aged 2 and 5. I worked as a forest school teaching assistant with children aged 4-8 last year and am now working full time in a local primary school as a teaching assistant. I spent last summer working on a cruise ship with families. I enjoy cooking nutritious family meals and can offer light housekeeping duties/ dog walking, shopping, and homework assistance.

My Experience

I worked as a registered childminder for 12 years, gaining Outstanding in my inspections covering the last 8 years. I started daytime nannying for families in January 2017 after closing my childminding business because my own family had grown up! I qualified as a relax kids coach in 2020 and ran relaxation and meditation classes for children in schools, the community and private homes, helping them build resilience and confidence. I have been babysitting in hotels/private houses and in the past 18 months working as a wedding/event/temporary nanny and holiday nanny, with the ability of using my extensive skills to create quick bonds with the children in my care and the parents. My passion and experience of working with children ensures your child will get the highest quality care at all times. I have an excellent knowledge of the early years foundation stage and can plan and deliver age appropriate activities for babies and toddlers. I am Montessori qualified and can help your children with school work, especially with younger children’s reading and writing skills. I also speak French and am happy to teach children French if required.

I can provide excellent references from previous parents I have worked for.

My Qualifications

I have a BA (Hons) degree, 3 A levels and 10 GCSEs grades A-C. During my childcare career I have gained numerous qualifications including the Diploma in home based childcare (Level 3) Mental Health in Children (level 2) the Early Years Professional Status (Level 6), and the Montessori teaching diploma, (Level 4).

Faye was prompt, had great communication and most of all cared for the boys very well. She really engaged with them at all times, singing nursery rhymes with puppets and observing the nature around them on walks. She had a lovely approach with the boys and I quickly felt very confident that she was extremely capable.

Faye has been with us now for a few months and our daughter already enjoys the days they spend together hugely. Faye has years of experience and this really stands out, she has great knowledge around food and behaviours to.

Bluebelle loves the games and puppets Faye brings and the calming techniques Faye is teaching Bluebelle are great skills for life!

Faye is easy to get on with, practical and patient. We are really pleased we have crossed paths.

Faye has had many hats with us - Nanny, Babysitter and Mothers Help. Faye had come highly recommended to me by a friend of mine whose three children had all been cared for by Faye in their younger years, so I knew we were in good hands.

Faye knew how to generate an instant bond with my then 10 month old daughter when she first started babysitting for us. Her "song bag" was an absolute hit and continued to be so all the months she nannied for us.

She was a life saver coming on to help me look after my then 5 month and 22 month old daughters two afternoons a week, for four months over the Winter while I struggled with PND. My toddler always looked forward to the afternoons Faye was coming and even still asks about Faye, months after she finished working for us. We wanted to take Faye on in a more full-time capacity, but unfortunately she had commitments elsewhere which didn't permit her to do so.

Faye's genuine love and interest in children is abundantly clear, and the children sense this. Her manner, experience, understanding, enthusiasm and flexibility all make for a wonderful childcare experience giving the parents complete peace of mind. I wouldn't hesitate recommending Faye to anyone!

Faye looked after our eldest child (girl, born Sept 2011) from Sept 2012 to Oct 2015 and our youngest child (boy, born May 2013) from Oct 2014 to Oct 2015. Faye made us feel very at ease and we knew when our daughter started with Faye that she would be well cared for and stimulated brilliantly.

We felt that Faye balanced with ease the needs of our children, combining trips out most mornings (to parks, play centres, gyms, Legoland!) to burn off their excess energy, with interactive and creative home play in the afternoon. We thought it was important for our children to experience the world around them and Faye always came up trumps in this regard.

Faye provided healthy home-cooked evening meals which our daughter usually wolfed down and she managed to persuade our son (who is a VERY fussy eater) to eventually get onboard with eating them too.

We and our children were very sad to say goodbye to Faye in October due to a house move and the children are constantly asking to go back to Faye's house! Her energy and enthusiasm for children to learn and develop is infectious and we are so very lucky that our children have been exposed to Faye's care. We would without hesitation recommend her care to others.

Faye was my child minder for 14months. My son absolutely enjoyed going to her house and being cared for. She is an extra special child minder because she is really pays attention to detail on child development and gets to understand each child. My son enjoyed trips to LEGOLAND, gardens and parks. Even the activities she did meant my child was developing his skills.
You get updates on trips with photos and progress on how your child done for the day. Faye operates like a nursery but with a one to one personal care you get from a child minder. If you are a first time mum and concerned if your child would be cared for without any worries then Faye is the child minder you would want your child to be looked after by. My son still talks about Faye and how much he misses her. Faye is the best child minder you could ever find.
