About Me

I am a nanny with lots if experience i am curgently nannying for a famity wit a 2 year old daughter, she starts scool part time in septembet and the full time come december. I am looking for another family to share my services as a nanny share with my current family we enjoy lots of activities together including, ballet, sport club, drama club, gymnastics, and toddler groups. When we are not doing an arranged club we go to the farm, park, swimming or cinema. Aswell as doing crafts and baking indoors. We also have a good network of nanny friends and go on play dates

I am very flexible and happy to do either a nanny share or sole charge nanny.

I love looking after children, taking them out on trips to different places and enjoy creative activities, I am a very easy going person and enjoy going to new places with children. Often i volunteer to have friends children to give them some free time.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any queries.

My Experience

I have experience of working with children from the age of 3 months onwards, in a nursery setting and from 10 months as a sole charge nanny. I am also a mum of two so have experience with my own children who are both now adults.

I have worked previously as a nanny for a family who have 3 children, they 2, 3 and 5. And worked with them for around 2 years . Duties include Taking them to activities tumble tots, football, toddler groups, trips to the park, library, museums, aswell as arranging play dates for them. I am going to miss them all.

Previously I have worked with 4 year old twins for almost 2 years . When I left, they were both settled at school full time and I needed more hours. I still babysit for these children.

I ran my own craft club for children last year and enjoyed meeting up with new mums and their children.

I can provide references from parents of children whom I have looked after during the last few years.

I have taken a first aid course

I got along with Diane very quickly and most importantly Diane was lovely towards the kids and they enjoyed her company too. I will be using Diane more often as a babysitter.

Thankyou for the review fatima.. love children a pleasure to babysit for


Diane has been looking after my three children (now 6, 4 & 3), three days a week for over a year. She is extremely reliable, instinctive and trustworthy. I can leave the house in the morning knowing that the children will be safe, well looked after and entertained appropriately. I arrive home to happy children, a tidy house and a variety of creations that have been made. Plus she makes a great spag bol!

Diane is easy-going and flexible and has made busy family life much easier. Her doing the odd babysitting has been great too.

If you have met Diane and are considering her to look after your children, I am very happy to give a reference over the phone - just ask her for my details.

Diane has looked after my 20 months old daughter. She has been great with her and my daughter loves Diane equally.
I have had to find someone to live-in, otherwise I would have continued with Diane.

Thankyou . It was lovely to spend time with you all such a lovely family


Diane looked after our 8 year old son and 7-month old daughter. She was great with the kids and nothing was too much trouble. I would definitely recommend her.
