Experienced babysitter, fun but firm student.
I'm an enthusiastic, hard-working person. I am passionate about the outdoors, music and the arts (I play both violin and viola to high standards), and am a lover of languages. I am now studying French and Philosophy at the University of Edinburgh.
I have always been sporty, and love encouraging young children to be active! Books have also always been extremely important to me - I enjoy sharing stories that were so important to me with younger ears. I spend a great deal of time reading to my nieces and nephews.
My parents foster children, and over the past five years I have shared my home with 8 different children under the age of 8. I have thoroughly enjoyed babysitting regularly, taking children on walks, and helping them to walk and play. I am naturally very patient, and enjoy communicating and spending time with children from different backgrounds to my own. Fun but firm, I have a great deal of experience caring for children, and would love to pursue this.
Over the past two years I have been babysitting for two Edinburgh families, with children ranging from 3-12 years old. I have found both positions extremely rewarding and am still in touch with one family, who has moved abroad. I am hard-working and always on time!
