About Me

Hi, I'm Cathryn...Cate or Cath to others!

I am a fun-loving Australian, having moved to Edinburgh from Sydney over 20 years ago with my young family.

I am an active parent of two well-adjusted adult children who are married and have now left home. I have many years of nursing experience, since qualifying in 1994 in North Yorkshire. I worked for Tumble Tots for nearly five years, part-time, and in 2014 I completed an HNC in Early Education and Childcare at Edinburgh College (Midlothian).

Since summer 2014 I have been privileged to work alongside two busy working families, as a Children's Nanny, both in East Lothian and Edinburgh.

I a warm personality with very good communication skills. I like those around me to be themselves. I can offer indoor and outdoor play experiences, and can influence a healthy, happy lifestyle. I am comfortable and empathetic to a wide variety of family and individual situations.

A non-smoking environment would be highly sought after. I own my own car, but charge for mileage..

I have a current PVG certificate and a permanent UK resident's visa.

My Experience

* Presently I work as a children's Nanny for two young children in Edinburgh, covering an extended maternity leave (now 18 months with them). I have also been working for a young family in East Lothian for nearly five years, They were 2.5yrs and 5 months when I started.

* I completed my HNC in Early Education and Childcare at Edinburgh College (Midlothian) in 2014.

* I've had five years experience of working with pre-schoolers in a fun and active environment, as a play leader for Tumble Tots, Edinburgh East (part-time).

* Registered nurse since 1994, and enjoyed working in both children and adult services. Now not nursing, and registration lapsed.

* I was a regular babysitter for a young family who I met through this site, and am currently providing before and after school care with another family, to cover a student placement. Both experiences enjoyed.

I enjoy my work, and can provide references and documents for all training.

I'd love to meet you! :))
