Part Time Nanny

About Me


I'm a 38yr old British nanny. I'm kind, caring and bubbly, and love looking after children. I have 20yrs of childcare experience with children ranging from newborn to 10yrs old. I'm also a qualified primary school teacher & mummy to a 7yr old girl who comes to work with me. I am ofsted registered & have an up to date first aid certificate. I hold a clean driving licence & own a car that's insured for work purposes. I am a non-smoker.

Aside from the usual nanny duties of cooking, doing laundry, keeping the toys organised etc, I take children to playgroups, classes, soft play, parks, museums, on play dates, day trips to the farm, seaside & so on. We would also spend time at home playing, doing arts and crafts, baking etc.

My Experience

I've been a nanny for 18yrs, looking after up to four children at a time, including experience with newborns & twins. And, I’ve been a babysitter for a few years before that. I also have now got 7yrs experience of being a mummy, which I believe is very valuable as I now see things from both the nanny's and the parents' perspective, and have experienced the many stages & phases that small children go through. I hold excellent, checkable references - a couple of my previous employers have written on here & my current employers would also be happy to provide a reference to anyone looking to use me as a babysitter.

My Qualifications

I've got:
A BAEd in Primary Education specialising in the early years.
Two A Levels & one AS Level.
Eleven GCSEs.
A current first aid certificate
A clean, British driving licence

My Availability

I'm looking for evening babysitting work. I'm available for evenings from 7pm & am happy to stay as late as you need me. I have a car so getting home is no problem.

I charge £10 per hour cash in hand for evening & weekend babysitting.

Kate looked after our boy from the age of 9 months to 2 years. Her care was impeccable, professional and warm. We were very happy with the caring environment she provided and would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone. Chris and Rosie

Kate will have looked after our daughters (now 2.5 and 6) for 2 years, while bringing her own daughter to work with her and we are very sad to see her go, but fully understand her decision to look for a position closer to her home.

Kate is a wonderful nanny to have had in our family, who has a great attitude, is hugely reliable and very much loved by our daughters.
Her organisational skills have proven to be an integral part of the functioning of our daily family life. She is very pro-active in arranging a varied schedule of daily activities, incl. playgroups, trips to the park, day trips to the farm/ sea side during school holidays.
She has a wide breadth of experience to draw on and has helped and supported us through various development stages incl. potty-training, sleep issues and introducing food variety.
Her open and chatty personality mixed with her professionalism make her a great nanny to welcome into any family and we are very sad to let her go and wish her all the best in her next role.
