I am a young 54 year old who loves caring for children of all ages, I have been doing this work for a long time yet it still feels fresh and exciting with each new child and family. I still feel as enthusiastic as I ever have and can still be found rolling on the floor or jumping in muddy puddles with my charges! I love to walk and be in the outdoors yet like the one to one play like craft (messy ones are my favourite),reading, jigsaws,lego...the list is endless really. I am patient and kind yet encourage good behaviour and manners.
I have been a nanny for 37 years and am now lucky enough to have a fourteen year old girl of my own. I have now decided to become a childminder and work from my own home.I love children of all ages and have been lucky to look after newborn babies right up to teenagers! I have had all long term jobs in my working life and am happy to say am still in contact with all my ex charges - lots of birthdays to remember!
I have 37years experience looking after children and am a mother too, to become Ofsted registered I did a childcare course recommended by them and passed with 98% . I passed my safeguarding with 100%. I have completed all pre registration course work for childminding. I also have a first aid certificate in paediatrics and d.b.s. checks in place.
Now available from October 2021 for caring for children in the Meersbrook area.

Siobhan has been nanny to our 3 boys (now aged 10, 8 and 4) for the last three and a half years. She's been a fabulous addition to the family and has been happy to muck in with family life. The boys love having her around and are very relaxed in her company. Siobhan is incredibly flexible and unflappable and manages to get children ready and off to school in the morning with minimal fuss whilst also dealing with the carnage left in the kitchen after breakfast! She spends a full day with our youngest son taking him to toddler groups, parks, libraries and play dates or entertaining him at home with craft or baking. She is also great at cooking meals for the children out of whatever is in the fridge whilst also managing to leave plenty of leftovers for mum and dad! I have no hesitation in recommending Siobhan for any family seeking a nanny - in fact, I have had numerous parents approach me in the school playground over the last few years to ask if Siobhan has any availability.
Siobhan has been a nanny for our daughter age 2 for the last 9months. I can say she truly cares for her as if she were her own daughter. Her own daughter who is 9 has a great relationship with our daughter as they often spend evenings together if we are working late. Siobhan is trustworthy, honest and extremely caring. As well as taking our daughter to any activities we have chosen Siobhan makes sure to fill her days with fun interactive activates: parks, church groups, singing, arts and crafts, messy play, books and generally ensures she gets out daily even in welly weather.
Siobhan also has a supportive network of nannies and utilises playgroups to enable interaction with a variety of other children. Siobhan is able to be flexible to accommodate early starts and late finishes, although we have never needed her overnight she has made this option available to us. When we return from work the house is tidy, the kitchen surfaces clean and our daughter happy playing. She is able to whip up a meal for our daughter from seemingly nothing in the fridge and often runs errands for us during the day.
Siobhan has been able to keep to our daughters routines, is consistent with discipline and above all listens to the rules we have in our house and has followed them with our daughter.
Our daughter enjoys spending her days with Siobhan, she has made our working lives easily manageable and worry free. I would highly recommend her services.
We had the exceptional good fortune to have this lady look after our two children for the last three years. She has been warm, cheerful and firm to them since our son was 1 and before our daughter was born. I was able to leave my 3 month old daughter with her without a moment's hesitation. She continues to be incredibly responsive to and consistent with them. Her patience is admirable! She is not only a highly professional person who maintains the balance within our home effortlessly, she is also creative, warm and funny. Our children adore her and we are truly devastated to be losing her from our family. I cannot recommend this lady enough.
