I’m Greta 24 years old . I’ve been living in the UK for the past 2 years . I’m a university student ( Business Management - Greece ) currently on a gap year.
I’ve got quite a wide experience in childcare. I started looking after children at the age of 14 when my sister was born . Since then I’ve been doing mainly part time babysitting/nannying to numerous kids of different ages . 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)
Whilst gaining all of that valuable experience, I got the chance to learn how to actively and effectively care for infants, toddlers and young kids without necessarily studying it .
Due to dealing with different ages I have been able to learn what each one of the individuals I look after need . Generally engaging with each child and giving them attention and time is my primary responsibility. Other additional duties depending on age mainly include organising/supervising indoor and outdoor activities which can help in their physical and mental development (playing, reading books , walking , cycling, singing etc ) , assisting with homework, meal preparation, bathing , getting them ready for naps/bedtime and generally maintain their daily routine.
•Have the right to work in the UK .
•Paediatric first aid completed (I was not provided a certificate but I’m willing to get one if required) .
•NOT a childminder/registered with ofsted.
•DO NOT OFFER SCHOOL RUNS.
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 I partially speak &understand Italian .
•I do 3 hours minimum babysitting.
•Available on Mondays/Tuesdays/Fridays from 9:30am-3pm.
•Happy to do late evenings/overnights but only at my place.

- Babysitting from £12.00 per hour
- Nannying from £12.00 per hour (net)
The rates might differ( 12£-15£ ) depending on the location of the family , number&age of the kids, hours , requirements etc. Considering that the minimum LEGAL hourly rate is 10,42£ (for 23+) I don’t charge below that amount in any circumstances . Depending on the hours of childcare required I’m happy to negotiate the fees .

Thank you Tahani , it’s been my pleasure!
I have had Greta take care of my little girl 3 different times and I had no issues at all each time. She kept the environment neat, followed instructions and communicated well with me throughout the period. I liked that she also engaged her through play activities and not only with the television.

Thank you Joan ! Appreciate the feedback!
Greta has been great with my twin boys. She is punctual, friendly, energetic and trustworthy. She interacted well with the twins and was caring towards them. I was very nervous about letting somebody else look after my babies but Greta put my mind at ease with her easy going and pleasant nature

Thank you Anam , it was a pleasure to look after your babies !
Greta was a nanny to our 6 month old child before she started nursery at 10 months. Greta is engaging and very reliable, she was never late. Greta is very comfortable with young babies and our daughter was always very excited and happy to see Greta.
