“I have always wanted to look after children from the age of 11 years old. I am the youngest of 4 and started babysitting at the age of 14 and still do the occasional bit at 46! I started my childcare training at 17 years old at a local college and at 18 years old was fortunate enough to be accepted at the highly prestigious Norland College, Berkshire. 

It was and still is a comprehensive training programme of 3 years which I am proud to say produces the best nannies in the world, some of which to go on to work for royalty.

The training covers everything to do with caring and developing a child from 0-7 years old. We worked in schools, day nurseries and had children to stay with us so we could learn the principles of night nannying and maternity nursing.

Once qualified, at the age of 20, I moved to London to be a live in nanny and have nannied ever since for the last 26 years, in England, abroad and now in Wales.

I have gained a wealth of experience and a deep understanding of children, babies and families. My work has now evolved through my experience to work on specific challenges with families such as sleep training and guidance sessions.

Each child I meet has an essence of such beauty and wisdom in their own way and I feel so unbelievably lucky to be able to do the job that I do, for both my own enjoyment and for the difference I make to the lives of the families that I work with.

From a small village in Berkshire, I am a kind, compassionate person now living in Wales, and have a wonderful partner Gareth who is a primary school teacher. In my spare time I am a yoga practitioner. Whilst I don’t have any children of my own I feel very lucky to have looked after so many brilliant children throughout the last 25 years, and I look forward to meeting many more in the future.

ITV Wales Appearance

What a client said about Kate recently...

"Kate really is a magic Mary Poppins. She came to help me with my third child, she quickly analysed our routine and with a few small changes my daughter was instantly sleeping through the night with very little crying/resistance. Kate instantly had a solution to every little change or problem during the next week or two. My daughter is now sleeping for longer (6.30pm-7am every night) and is now very predictable with her daytime naps which makes it easier with my two slightly older children. I still cannot believe it was so easy- i wish i had contacted Kate months ago!!! I would highly recommend Kate, she has transformed our lives, for the better!"

Thanks so much Kate!
