Dear Parents,

My name is Caoimhe Lonergan and I am a 23 year old medical student in Cork with vast experience looking after children of both genders and all ages. I have a genuine love for children and hope to become a paediatrician once I obtain my medical degree.

I am a conscientious, punctual, sociable person. I am a non-smoker and also have my own car. I have had my full driving licence for almost 5.5 years and have never had any reprimands, warnings or penalty points, and am willing to do drop offs and collections whenever required.


I have been a childminder for a lovely family since May 2014. When the summer was coming to an end, the family asked me to remain as their childminder, thus extending what was only supposed to be a fulltime summer job. I remain with them to this day as a homework tutor and the family have asked me to look after the children again this summer.

Since September 2014 I have also been minding twins three mornings a week, preparing them for preschool and all that it entails, as well as having ´morning storytime´ before dropping them off at 8:30am. My time with them came to an end in May due to the fact that the parents finished work for the summer and the twins will be starting primary school in September.

For the month of June I looked after two children at their home while their parents were working, until they left to go on holiday for the remainder of the summer. When they return at the end of August I have been asked to recommence minding them.


The aforementioned are only some of my most recent childminding jobs. I also do occasional babysitting for other families who have remained in contact with me over the years since the time I babysat for them. It is lovely to see how the children have grown up and I remain close to many of my previous charges. This includes regularly skyping two lovely girls and their family who moved to Iceland last Christmas.


I am certified in CPR and have completed the ‘Adult and Pediatric AED and CPR’ curriculum of the ‘Irish Heart Foundation’. As a medical student I am very aware of how to treat the signs and symptoms that children frequently portray when ill, having seen many cases in various Cork hospitals and General Practice clinics while on placement.


From July onwards I am available for all evening and weekend work, as well as any morning time childminding until 9am.

I would like to thank you for taking the time to read my profile. Should you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact me. Excellent references can be provided on request.

Kindest regards,
Caoimhe Lonergan
