About Me

I’m Greta 23 years old . I’ve been living in the UK for the past 1 and a half year . I’m a university student currently on a gap year . I’m studying Business Management . I have pre settlement status.

My Experience

Here is some information you might need to know .
I’ve got quite a wide experience in childcare. I started minding children at the age of 14 when my sister was born . From that time on I did babysat numerous kids (newborns to teenagers) in Greece till I started travelling at the age of 19. Where the first kid I looked after abroad was in Switzerland for a short time . I’ve also been an Au pair 3 times in Ireland, UK and Spain . In Ireland I was taking care of a 9year old girl , a newborn baby and mainly a 12 month old boy for 1 year(2019/2020) . In Spain I was a summertime Au pair / sitter watching over a 5 year old girl and her 14 year old sister (2020) . And finally in the UK I have been the au pair/nanny of two girls age 3&8. All of those families have been the best people I could ever imagine living with . (References available)

While getting that experience, I was also able to improve my approach and general knowledge on how to handle and deal with kids . I learned how to do certain stuff such as ways of entertainment ,activities which can help in their mental and physical development, be patient enough to teach them different things and help with homework & or fulfil their every day practical needs such as bathing, putting to bed , feeding etc . I used to love reading books regarding kids but I soon realised that practical engagement with them will always be the best way to help you understand their needs .

Some of the things I loved to do with the kids was arts and crafts, go for swimming with them , ride our bikes and go on long walks , play board games but generally it was always preferred from all parts including me , to try to do as much outdoor activities and sports as possible.

Useful information
•Non smoker
•No driving license
•Paediatric first aid completed

My Qualifications

My studies were not related to children however I’ve attended two seminars where we were informed about the kids psychology and how it can be affected and treated in case I has been damaged . The other one was related to bullying and how we should act when we detect it among young kids .I can speak English , Greek , Albanian and Italian .

Greta cared for our 10 month old daughter part time and was great from the start. Took to caring for our daughter like a duck to water, always on time and required very little supervision.
Sadly the bus journeys to ours from the wrong side of Birmingham took its toll and ended our care prematurely. If it wasn’t for the tiring distance needed to travel Greta would have stayed longer term.
Nevertheless Greta was kind, confident, reassuring and just awesome.

Thank you both for your kind words . It has been my pleasure to look after your gorgeous girl !

This was the first time we have used a baby sitter for our little girl and Great was great. We were nervous before but Greta ensured us that all would be ok and that she would keep us regularly updated. Greta arrived well on time and was great with our baby, she looked after her very well, gave her lots of attention and sent us lots of pics and vids to help us to feel at ease.

Thank you ! I enjoyed spending time with your little girl 😊

Greta had great communication prior to babysitting and arrived at our house in a timely manner. When she arrived my 10 month old daughter immediately warmed to her and she was loving a caring towards my daughter straight away which put me at ease.
Greta was kind, responsible and great with my child.
She responded to my messages and had good communication throughout the day while I was away from my daughter and made sure I wasn't feeling anxious. She looked after my daughter the way I asked her to, and I will be contacting her again in future for babysitting if she is available. Thank you Greta.

Thank you Lauren . I’ll be happy to look after your baby again ! :))

Greta was great with our 21 month old on quite short notice and was very flexible. We would not hesitate to use her again the next time we are in the city. Trustworthy, friendly and our son had a lovely time!

Thank you 😊

Greta was brilliant with my daughter, and l found that my baby took an instant likeing to her. When l left her she didn't cry as l was leaving which was my main concern , and when l got back she was relaxed and happy. Highly recommended
