Hi! I'm Sophie and I am a 27-year-old Registered Paediatric Nurse. I have grown up around children of all ages and absolutely love kids, hence my career in paediatric nursing. I have been nursing children of all ages and with a wide range of medical conditions for 5 years. I have looked after premature newborns up to adolescents with a wide variety of medical issues. I babysat all through high school and university. I am currently off work due to a broken ankle- but am very mobile in a moon boot am still very mobile/able to drive and everything! My youngest brother was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in 2006 and I have also cared for him in terms of insulin dosing, blood sugar tests etc for many years. I have put that down specifically as I know my Mum really wanted to get some help with childcare when my brother was diagnosed but was concerned that the nannies would not be able to manage his diabetes- if your child is diabetic, I can be of help! I am comfortable with children of all ages, I have cared extensively for newborns in my work and am happy with feeding/burping/bathing etc. I, of course, have full first aid and CPR training as part of my nursing registration. I have also in my work cared for special needs children extensively so if your child has special needs and you need that extra assistance, please get in touch! I am energetic and enthusiastic and love to play with the children I babysit. I am also more than happy to assist with homework and reading. I love arts and crafts and am always keen to get kids involved in those kinds of activities. I am also quite an active person and like to take the kids to the park or on little outings if that is okay with you. I play piano and orchestral percussion and can read music so I am also happy to help teach a little music or just have the kids get involved in music of some kind! I am always happy to work around your needs! I can also do late nights and overnights if required. I have a full license and I own my own car (5 seater) and can do school pick ups/drop offs as needed! Contact me if you are interested!
I have been babysitting since I was 13 years old, and have nannied several families (happy to provide references!) I have been a registered nurse in paediatrics for 5 years and have cared for children of all ages, including premature babies and newborns. The families I have nannied for had children aged 0-15 and I have had extensive experience with nannying newborns. I have experience with all manner of illnesses and conditions as well as differing abilities. Happy to babysit any age!
