About Me

I am a full time student of Literature at the University of Edinburgh, currently based in Edinburgh but originally from the Czech Republic. I first found my way to children through a youth theatre society and have enjoyed working with them ever since. I find their creative energy inspiring and enjoy encouraging their curiosity and development. In my spare time I like to deepen my interest in the performing arts and I love hiking or camping in nature.

My Experience

I have been working at the British Council Summer Camp in Prague for 4 years now, taking care of children aged 5-15. My experience included supervising children for much of the day, leading sports and games activities, and working with children with special needs and/or autism. I have also done weekly volunteering at a children's drama club organized by Prague Youth Theatre between 2015 and 2017. There I assisted with children aged 4-9, overseeing interactive games and helping them stage a theatre production.

My Qualifications

Completed the IB diploma at the English College in Prague in 2020. Started a four-year undergraduate degree programme in English and Scottish Literature (MA Hons) at the University of Edinburgh in 2020. Completed a first-aid training course with the Czech Red Cross in 2021.

My Availability

I am looking to do part-time babysitting 1-2 times per week. My availability is flexible and upon agreement.

Fran worked for us looking after 1 year old Viola just for 3 days in 1 week to help me settle into my new remote job. Fran hadn't worked with children of violas age for a while but she got the hang of nappy changes, feeding solids, holding and comforting Viola very quickly and beautifully.

I loved how gentle and calm her voice was in communicating and playing with my baby, especially as she got to use her native Czech language as Viola is part Czech. She had a natural way of communicating respectfully with Viola, not talking down to her or trying to dominate her. If Fran wanted to work with this age again, I would recommend her.

Fran worked as a nanny in our home, not a childminder so setting and food are illrelevent but I couldn't leave them blank.
