About Me

Hello i am Samantha
Here is a little about me....
I love to be outside and enjoy walking especially on the beach, collect shells and interesting treasures to use for my art ( another of my hobbies) I enjoy spending time continuing my studies into art therapy. I am very creative which is a plus as I love working with children.

Having spent most of my career looking after poorly children as a Paediatric nurse, I have now decided to leave nursing.
I would still love to work with families just in a different way. My experience extends from newborn upwards.

I have 3 children who have flown the nest and 3 grandchildren so plenty of experience in all areas of a child’s life from being poorly to being well and mischievous totalling over 30 years experience/

*** Please note although I do not have childcare certification as part of my nursing degree child development is covered as standard in the first year of study.
There is not an option for a Paediatric trained nurse certification on this site.

My Experience

I am a trained Paediatric nurse of 12 years, with experience working and supporting all ages from birth on a general Paediatric Ward, A&E, community and as a nurse specialist with CAMHS.

I am more than happy to care for children who are unwell and not able to go to their regular child minder or nannie as this is something I am trained in. This means you do not have to use your holiday allowance or take sick days from work.

Paediatric nursing Degree
Enhanced first aid.

Enhanced DBS.
Over 30 years experience with children and families.

We were very lucky to find Samantha when we needed last minute childcare. Samantha made fast friends with our two small children, and she's done a fantastic job with them during her last two visits. Would highly recommend her if you're looking for an experienced and friendly babysitter.

Samantha was brilliant with my 15 month old. My daughter warmed to her straight away and I felt completely confident leaving her in Samantha’s care. I would recommend her to anyone!
