I am an active, mature Mum to two, successful, young adults. I have cared for children of all ages, both in private and professional roles, as a Nanny in Italy, a Registered Nurse and a Teacher's Assistant making me confident in my abilities to care for children from babies to teenagers.
Originally from the UK I've lived in Australia for many years. I understand how difficult it can be having a young family with no support and I understand that your children are your absolute world. I have a WWCC and a police clearance (Sept. 2020). I am safety and security conscious, flexible, honest, kind and firm when needed. I am also an experienced house/pet sitter with great reviews on other websites. I look forward to meeting you and your children. 😀
7 families in your area recommended Gillian...
"Gill babysat for my son, Timmy (21 months).We really appreciated that she took the time to meet with us and play with Timmy before the job. Gill's gentle and warm nature won over my son who is normally quite shy and reluctant with unknown people but he was happy to have a cuddle in her lap in no time. Gill was also on time and communicated excellently with us. I felt very confident that she understood the very serious nature of my son's peanut allergy and we couldn't ask for more than a qualified nurse to look after him! Thank-you Gill, we hope to have you babysit again for us very soon!"
