Hi, my name is Sarah and I am 22 years old. I have completed two years of a Biomedical Science degree at Oxford Brookes and am currently studying Midwifery at the University of Cumbria. I have my own car and am willing to travel. I am sporty, reliable and enthusiastic.
I have worked as a babysitter for a number of families in my area and I have family members with young children, who I have looked after on occasion. Whilst at Oxford Brookes I worked as agency staff for a childcare company: Kangacrew. This involved being sent to different nurseries across Oxfordshire to act as relief staff. Working for Kangacrew gave me experience with children between the ages of 4 months and 5 years old.
In the summer of 2014 I was an au pair for a month with a family in Madrid. They had two lovely little boys aged 1.5 and 3 years. I had to do the school run, dress them, put them down for naps and entertain them. This gave me invaluable experience in caring for someone else's children and I really enjoyed this opportunity.
I have a CRB/DBS check and a lot of experience, but I do not have any formal childcare qualifications.
I work 30 hours a week in practice as part of my midwifery course but I am mostly free when I'm not on shift. My shifts vary from week to week so, unfortunately, I'm unable to commit to set days.

No recommendations yet, soon it will be your turn ?
I expect between £7-10 per hour for babysitting which I believe is a pretty standard rate.
For part-time care, depending on the length of care I would be happy with slightly less per hour as I understand that regular childcare is expensive for parents.
