About Me

Hello! My name is Alice and I am 22 years old. I set up my own babysitting business in September 2020 whilst in my final year studying Early Years and Special and Inclusive Education at Nottingham Trent University. I am passionate about providing a caring and nurturing service for children.

I am DBS checked, first aid trained and fully insured.

I live in Shepshed but I am happy to drive to surrounding areas. I offer a free "meet the family" session to meet children and their families as it is important for children to know who may be taking care of them in the future. It is also imperative that parents feel comfortable with me taking care of their children and feel able to ask any questions!

* I am not currently taking on new families *

My Experience

* Learning Support Assistant (August 2021 - current)
I am currently working in a secondary school with key stage 3 children.

* Volunteered overseas in India (January 2020 - February 2020)
I spent 6 weeks working in Delhi with children aged 2 - 16. I supported practitioners in a physiotherapy clinic for young children with physical disabilities and special educational needs. I also taught English and Maths to a class of thirteen children in a slum school on a daily basis. In the orphanage, I taught children personal hygiene routines and practices to promote good health and prevent illness.

* Assistant Early Years Educator (June 2019 - October 2019)
I also have experience working in an “Outstanding” forest school. I am enthusiastic about outdoor learning and giving children opportunities to play outside in all weathers. I have a very good understanding of the benefits of outdoor play experiences for children and the theories that support it. This is something I would be happy to implement during babysitting hours if this is something you would like for your child.

* Student volunteer at Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People (December 2018)
I built a professional relationship with staff members, children and young people. I gained experience in a range of areas, including daycare team, play team, physiotherapy team and health care team. I observed various areas of palliative care and supported health care assistant’s in gastrostomy and jejunostomy feeds, cough assist to detach secretions and position changes.

I have excellent knowledge of child development, the Early Years Statutory Framework (EYFS) and Development Matters.

Early years theories that I am passionate about:
- Maria Montessori
- Margaret McMillan
- Magda Gerber
- Dr Ferre Laevers
