I have worked as a nanny and babysitter for 6 years and have looked after children of both genders within the ages of 9 months up to 7 years, including twins. I am a trustworthy and active person and very interested in helping people. Which is why I am currently studying counselling. I love animals and am very comfortable having pets around as well.
I also have experience with twin girls as well as twin boys. I currently look after 2.5 year-old twin boys and have been looking after them since they were 9 months old.
Inese has worked for us as live-in nanny for the last 2 years. During that time her responsibilities were to care for our 3 girls who are currently aged 7, 4 and 4. Over this period she has proved to be punctual, dependable and reliable. Most importantly she has been an excellent guardian for the children.
She is able to impose discipline in a very measured and effective manner. At the same time she also stimulates the children during fun and playful activities. We think that handling 3 girls (including twins) between toddler and childhood is both physically and psychologically demanding. We have thus been very impressed with Inese's ability.
lnese has been the nanny to our 2 children, an 18 month girl and 3 year old boy, for the past 7 months. The children love her and always seem to have a good time when she is around. They are happy to see her when she walks in the door in the morning, and regularly ask if lnese is coming today, or invite her to stay to eat dinner with us at the end of the day. lnese regularly cooks lunch for both children, while taking into account that our son has an allergy to dairy. She cleans after herelf and regularly helps with making our small kitchen cleaner than the way it was left.
Her duties have been varied and informal: she often dresses both children, brushes hair and teeth, picks up from nursery, takes the children to the park, playground, libraries, or stay and play groups. lnese managed to potty train my older child, where both his nursery teacher and parents failed.
She takes the children out to various activities every day that she works. While our younger child has a nap, she works on writing letters and numbers with our son and has even supplied him with workbooks and learning tools.
"Inese was amazing, very professional and nuce to the kid. To repeat for sure"
"Inese was great. She did very well. I will surely use again in the future. "
"Last minute booking!! My mum couldn't come to babysit as planned and we couldn't cancel our meeting. So hard as our son isn't great with strangers. Kidsitters really respected my feelings and carefully selected Inese for my 3 year old. He took an hour to warm up to her (record breaking) all down to Inese's brilliant connection with kids and the fact that she was braced to take on the challenge. 6 hours later happy little bunny sound asleep. Thank you Kidsitters and Inese"
"Excellent service. Sitter was punctual and sent regular messages to reassure me"
"Inese was fantastic, extremely warm and professional. Very pleased with the Kidsitter service - thanks!"
"She was not at all experienced with babies and didn't know how to settle the baby. Did not have a proactive, helpful attitude. Made my night out very stressful. I would not recommend using her as a babysitter again.
-- Thank you so much for your review and feedback. We understand the importance of peace of mind when you request a babysitter. We take feedback very seriously and are addressing this with the babysitter. We have not charged you for the booking and sincerely hope you give us another try in the future. - the KidSitter Team"
"Evening booking so our baby was asleep but Inese was punctual and professional."
"Inese was great, she came well in advance, played with our son, fed him and put him to bed without any problem. She also texted me to let me know that everything was going well! Highly recommend her!"
"My son had a great afternoon with Inese when she watched him. She kept him busy with all his favourite games and toys and he sang her praises when I got home."
"Kind, conscientious and on time. Would definitely request again "
"Coped manfully with our two-year-old, who is mostly toilet trained but chose today to have a regression. He said that they had fun together and he would like her to come back."
"Inese is lovely and caring. My daughter and she got on really well together. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her."
"Inese was very pleasant girl texted me every now and then to update me on the boys which was nice and reassuring, when I arrived home both boys were sleeping had dry clean nappies and seemed very content overall I'd say she was absolutely great x thanks "
