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 6 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 am raising own 2 children.
I babysit for clients and friends in the area and the children enjoy coming over as I always offer fun activities to do, resources and games to play.
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 is everything you wish for a baby sitter. She is a lovely caring person, with a great personality, both my daughter and son loved her straight away.
I was a bit anxious about leaving my kids for the first time in 2 years with a total stranger but she was fantastic, kids were happy, so much that my daughter wanted her to stay overnight. She was communicating with us through messages so we knew how the kids were doing, if they ate their dinner and went to bed fine, which was of course the case. She is also very professional and trustworthy.
Since we found her we booked her twice already, she is definitely our first call when in need.

We are so happy to have found Monique to babysit our two children. Monique is a very warm person with a calming energy. Our children are very drawn to her, she is engaging, attentive and fun! Just amazing, thank you so much Monique!

Monique is honestly like a fairy godmother, I can't believe how lucky I am to have found her. Our son is currently being diagnosed with ASD, we live in Spain but needed to come back to the UK for a few days to work and needed someone to look after our 3.5yr old. I was so worried about leaving him with a stranger but oh my goodness, our gorgeous boy loved every second of his time with Monique, in fact I think he prefers being with her more than us now, it's nowhere near as much fun with us. She's like a magician too because he slept better each night after being with her and I am sure he learnt a lot with her which is so encouraging for his development. I need Monique in my life and if I could just get her to move to Spain I completely would. I would happily recommend her to anyone, especially if you have a child that may have some special needs, she is gentle, quiet and kind and your precious ones will be completely safe and happy.

Monique babysat for us for the first time last week. It was also the first time we had left the girls with anyone other than family and she made me/us feel very at ease and happy to take on anything that fitted in with our usual routine. Monique updated me through the evening which was calming as I didn’t want to constantly be texting asking if everything was ok. I arrived home to a lovely canvas that they had all done together and a hungry Monique as the girls had stolen her sandwich and snacks lol (all healthy though may I add). Can’t wait to have her back xx
