I have 2 children aged 8 and 6 who are usually looked after by my husband if I am babysitting. I may occasionally need to bring them with me to babysit, depending on the start time and day of the booking but do have family who are usually able to look after them with enough notice. I am available most evenings, some weekend daytimes and some school holidays. I may also be available during the day in the week if I am not working. As I have young children of my own I don't currently take booking which finish after midnight.
My additional details are on Profile Plus. Please get in touch if I can help with your childcare needs.

We have called on Laura a few times and always find her very reliable, punctual and friendly, and the kids are happy and comfortable with her being there, as are we at leaving them in her care. We have no hesitation at always making her our first choice when we are need of a baby sitter.
