About Me

I am an Undergraduate Law student based in Folkestone with nine years of experience as a prominent caregiver for my sibling, along with five years of experience working as a nanny and babysitter for babies and children in my hometown. I come from a large, tightly knit family and have been surrounded by young children throughout my teen years. I wish to work in Child Protection/ Social Work upon completion of my degree and feel that strengthening my experience with a variety of babies and children from different backgrounds will be beneficial for my career prospects. I am passionate about child development and value the importance of a safe and healthy upbringing in order for children to get the best start in life. I have extensive experience feeding, changing and bathing young babies in addition to babysitting and tutoring primary age children. I am happy to assist with general housework and duties also. I am musical and enjoy nature walks in the English countryside. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions!

My Experience


I have nine years of experience caring for children from birth to ten years. My care experience includes the children of family, family friends and neighbors in my hometown amongst a range of settings.

Responsibilities varied dependent on the age of the children; I am confident feeding young babies (preparing formula/ defrosting breast milk) and have experience weaning (baby led and spoon fed) and can adjust this suited to your needs, I am happy to change nappies and bathe children as part of their nighttime routine and can again adjust this dependent on your preference. I have a young brother who I helped raise from birth and I often cared for him independently when my Mother was on business trips. This included night feeding, day trips and caring for him when he was unwell. I also worked at Mothercare prior to it’s closing down and am an expert in feeding, developmental play, travel safety and products. I was trained in the development of babies and young children and this focused heavily on play and education.

I have primarily cared for babies and toddlers, therefore focusing on language and social development through play but am educated up to A Level standard and would be happy to act as a tutor for school aged children, for example SAT and 11+ preparation across all subjects.

I have a drivers licence but do not currently have a car, however I am happy to do drop offs/ pick ups if the school is walking distance. I can also assist with clubs that your child may attend or can take them on walks/ exercise at local parks.

My Qualifications

I am paediatric first aid trained and have also recently completed a Covid awareness course.

I am currently studying Law at University after completing my GCSE’s and A Levels (A’s and B’s). My module choices are based around child protection and family law due to career prospects. I am well educated and able to assist with homework/ tutoring of children.

Please contact me for more details. Available 1-3 days per week, with more availability in the summer.

Shannon is responsible. Has a great personality and is a great listener. Shannon arrived on time and it didn't take long at all for my 20 months old son to like her. I could here them playing and giggling while i did my studies in another room. Sounded like they were having fun!
