With over 20 years experience in the childcare & Education sector,I have worked with children from newborn - 18 years old, inc special needs & multiples ( 5 sets of twins & 1 set of triplets )

I have worked in a variety of settings inc Primary school,playgroup,and private homecare settings

I have been sole charge Nannying since 2007 ( after relocating from West Wales, where I was Assistant Supervisor of a very popular/ busy Preschool )

I have especially had a lot of experience as a Maternity Nanny ( daily & overnight) including 3 sets of twins & 1 set of triplets
I am also a trained Breastfeeding peer supporter.

A non smoker,I have my own car with business class insurance.

I have full Paediatric First Aid training & Nanny insurance .

I'm not currently registered with the CSSIW ,as my current families don't require me to be, although if needed, I'm willing to re register.

I live in the Bridgend area, but am willing to travel. I have my own car

I'm an animal lover, so pets are no problem

I love the outdoors and going on outings / days out no matter what the weather!

Rachel is an absolutely fantastic Nanny. We employed her for 2 days a week for a year during January - December 2012. She looked after our daughter who was 6 months (now 18 months) and our son, who was three (now 4). Rachel settled in straight away and soon became part of the family. She bonded with the children very quickly as she has a very warm approach and is lots of fun. The children adored her and it was never a problem handing over - they were always happy to spend time with her. Everything she did for us was to an exceptional standard. She was always punctual and highly flexible if we needed to change days or for her to work the occasional extra hours.

I found Rachel lovely to deal with on a personal basis, she was easy to approach with matters regarding the children, gave fantastic advice on any childcare matters and was generally a lovely person to have around. I would highly recommend Rachel to anyone looking for a Nanny - snap her up if you get the chance!! We employed her to help us through a house refurbishment project which came to an end after a year but will keep in touch.

Rachel was our Nanny for some 18 months in 2010 - 2011. Her relationship with our three children was nothing short of amazing. The level of care she provided them was way over and above our expectations.

In particular her ability to deal with a young baby and two others under 6 was fantastic, and her flexibility to assist us during a difficult and pressurised period of our lives was fantastic.
My only wish is that we could have kept Rachel on longer. She will be an asset to any family and I wish her all the best in the future.

Thanks Rachel!

I would tell anyone who needs a nanny/babysitter to contact rachel ,
Rachel has been helping me with my 5 children (aged 11,9,2 and twin 1year olds) since march 2012 ,
i was nerves at first as i have never needed child care before but the moment i first meet her i knew i made the right chose ,she is so warm and friendly that me children took to her straight away .
Rachel has not only helped take the presser off have a large family she has also become a fab friend to me and the children .
i only wish that i could have her every day not just once a week but unfoutantly are budget dose not allow that, me and my husband said the first thing we would do if we won the lotto is to hire rachel full tiime lol
