My name is Nicola and I am 40years old. I am an experienced Nanny who believes in having fun with children but at the same time ensuring that they are well mannered and well behaved. I am married and I don't have any children. I love listening to music, exercising and spending time with family and friends.
I have been looking after children since the age of 12 doing regular babysitting for neighbours. I worked in a school for a year and 8 months whilst I gained my NVQ 1 in childcare and for the past 22 years I have been working as a full time nanny for various families. I have looked after newborns right through to teenagers.
I have an NVQ 1 in childcare,I almost gained my NVQ 2 in childcare but couldn't complete the course due to the fact that I couldn't be assessed in my workplace. I have an enhanced DBS certificate which was done in December 2021.
I am a teaching assistant in a school. My availability will be in the evenings during the week and anytime at weekends. During the school holidays I am available in the week during the day.

- Babysitting from £8.00 per hour
- Nannying from £12.00 per hour (gross)
Day work is charged at £12 an hour. Babysitting in the evening is £8 an hour and then £10 an hour after midnight. The fees for overnight care can be discussed as this will depend on exact arrangements. I am also happy to help at children's birthday parties and also at weddings where I can keep groups of children entertained so the adults can have some time to enjoy themselves.. Rates are negotiable so please feel free to discuss your needs with me.

Nicola was employed with us on a temporary basis to help support me with my two children aged four and two. She worked for us for five weeks whilst I was recovering from major surgery. Nicola had a variety of duties and embraced all aspects of her work for us. She worked long days but always arrived on time, and would always see through all of her duties thoroughly. Nicola also showed a great deal of initiative during her time with us; she was able to recognise when I needed more or less support, and when things needed doing. She does not need reminding to do jobs; she is efficient and reliable and acts independently and on her own instinct. Nicola has a kind and caring manner but is able to remain firm but fair when dealing with behavioural matters. Nicola was also extremely sensitive to the fact that it was a difficult time for us as a family. I would not have any hesitation in recommending Nicola as a nanny.

When I started working for Mike and Melissa they were going through a tough time but despite this I found them to be very welcoming and easy to get along with. They were a lovely family to work for and I am glad that I was able to help them through their difficult time and I hope things continue to go well for them.
I met Nicola regarding a babysitting job for my 2 young children.
Nicola came across very professional, experienced with a kind and gentle manor. I look forward to seeing her very soon to look after my little ones.

When I met Nicola she was very friendly and easy going. Her two boys were adorable and I am looking forward to looking after them very soon.
