About Me

Hi :) I am a professional, trustworthy, caring, friendly and experienced babysitter and registered childminder with a Bachelors Degree in Education,DBS check & first aid certified. I have created a safe,learning-rich environment for children to have fun,feel comfortable,and well cared for while learning new skills and developing their understanding of the world.

My Experience

I have been teaching for 5 years in Mainstream school and 1 year in SEND (class teacher in SLD and MLD class). I have been a school run driver, aupair and nanny in South Africa, looked after my 7 younger siblings (ages ranging from newborn to teenager) and I have 2 of my own children.
I offer babysitting services and am a local registered childminder with a love for children and passion for helping them develop and learn whilst exploring and having fun, especially outdoors.
I set up play areas, Arts and crafts table, train sets and car mats. I also do movement and action songs and the the children get to explore musical instruments. Something different every time depending on your child's age, developmental levels and interests.
Home-based care in a safe, comfortable and learning-rich environment in Stoughton during the week
Weekday evenings and weekends I am available for babysitting at the child's home
Best wishes

Monique has been looking after our daughter for 2 days a week, she absolutely loves Monique, as do we. She is so sweet, kind and caring. Our daughter has progressed so much since being with her, with counting, puzzles, colours and her speech. I couldn’t recommend Monique more xx

Our current childminder was going on leave for 5 weeks so we needed to find a temporary childminder for our 3 year old. As soon as we met Monique we knew she was going to be wonderful with our daughter. She immediately bonded with her and played with her. She had so many fun toys and activities for our daughter to do.

During the time our daughter has been with Monique she has absolutely thrived. Her confidence has improved, her communication skills have flourished, her logic and art skills have gotten so much better, her concentration, and she's just so happy at the end of every day there. Monique does lots of practical and hands on activities with the children so whilst they're learning they're also having so much fun. Our daughter brings home numerous arts and crafts projects that they've worked on and shes so proud, its lovely to see. They play games, do puzzles, dress up, paint, go to the park and splash pool, go for walks - and so much more!

One key thing I love about Monique is the affection she shows for the children in her care. Shes so loving and she has treated our daughter like one of her own which is priceless for us. Our daughter absolutely loves her to bits.

Monique has always been really open and honest with us about our daughters progression and has highlighted to us any challenges that have arisen. We also receive a progress report at the end of each day which is such a nice touch. We also receive photos throughout the day which is so lovely as its nice to see what they are up to.

I really couldn't recommend Monique enough, she is an absolute Godsend.

We had a fantastic experience with Monique!
She made us feel incredibly comfortable leaving our 5-month-old for the first time with someone outside of the family while we attended a wedding. Monique is professional, knowledgable, kind and empathetic. She kept us up to date during the evening as to how our daughter was which was very reassuring. We had such a great experience with Monique that we plan to use her as much as we can in future and would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a reliable, trustworthy and knowledgable babysitter.

Our nursery had to shut for two weeks due to staffing issues so I contacted Monique to see if she could look after my two year old in an ad hoc basis for these weeks. Monique was quick to respond and when I first met her was instantly reassured and happy to leave my son with her. For the second week she also looked after my eldest child (5 years old) who had a fab time. She keeps you updated throughout the day with lovely photos showing the kids having lots of fun. I would highly recommend Monique.
