Hi there, I am a Christchurch local with seven plus years babysitting/ nannying experience. I have worked with families with a variety of needs including live in support, enabling children with disabilities to participate in daily activities and causal babysitting. In my spare time I love to be outdoors and I’m a keen white water kayaker. I am happy to provide assistance with household tasks, cooking and animal care. I have my full license and a car suitable for transporting children and car seats.
5 families in your area recommended Madi...
"I found Madi, via JS, at pretty short notice having lucked out with our regular babysitters. I could not have been been happier with Madi, she has plenty of caring experience, is very easy to communicate with, and has a relaxed manner with put the children and us very quickly at ease. I would recommend Madi for anyone who is looking for a reliable, competent and mature person to help with their childcare duties, whatever they might be."
