About Me

My name is Sasha and I’m a qualified holistic babysitter.
My approach is child-led and gentle;
I let children take the lead in activities and encourage them to express themselves through every step of the way so they can lead their own learning and play.
Whether your wee ones do it through drawing, singing, dancing, painting, role playing, dressing up, exploring - I’m here to make sure they have the most fun!

I’m a big advocate for mental health and I believe it is vital to build a healthy self-image from an early age. I practise simple mindfulness techniques which are accessible for young children and help them learn to regulate emotions, which is an important skill for resilience later in life.

I am also a home school helper and will be happy to help with homework, particularly English and Maths. I speak English and Russian fluently and I’m interested in supporting bilingual families in the area.

My Experience

After working in private nurseries for 2 years, I decided my approach is best suited to working with families directly and spending quality time with children on a one-to-one basis.
