About Me

1st July to the 19th July - Available for any hours

22nd to the 16th of August - Any hours on Mon,
Thurs and Friday and on Wed and Thurs evenings.

I'm Claire a 27-year-old qualified Early Years Childhood Practitioner and I have recently completed a BA in Childhood and Youth Studies through the Open University.

I am available for babysitting (evening or daytime).

I've got a lot of experience working with children (and two much younger brothers) so I've got lots of tricks up my sleeve for keeping them entertained. I genuinely enjoy being around children and playing games, crafts, singing, cooking, exploring outside and generally having lots of fun. I believe in listening to children, offering them choices and the opportunity to make their own decisions (within reason) and enabling them to feel in control of their own lives. I believe in being consistent so I suppose it's a firm but fair approach with me whilst having lots of fun and I find this approach works well.

I can provide copies of CV, qualifications, most recent PVG and references.

I just love Claire. She arrived on time and took straight to my son and was a natural. She even did my dishes :) I wouldn't hesitate to use again, Knowing my son was in very safe hands.
