About me:

As the daughter of a single mum, I grew up with babysitters and nannies, (both good and bad!) and I still remember the kinds of qualities that made me feel the most safe and happy as a child (and those that did not!). I have always had an affinity to children, even as a child myself I was obsessed with my dolls! I volunteered with children any chance I got at secondary school which included being a teaching assistant at a primary school with year 3s, and from then I knew I wanted to work in childcare as a career. Last summer I worked as a daycare assistant at a nursery and developed useful skills and experience that definitely prepared me to work with young children in the future. I understand that children need lots of patience and empathy and I have both of those traits. I also understand how hard it is for a parent to trust someone else with their child and want to reassure you that I genuinely care about children's wellbeing and happiness. I am a University student studying French, Spanish and Italian and I spent a year abroad in Paris and Madrid! My most recent role was a 6 month nanny role abroad caring for a 3 year old. Planning age appropriate activities and keeping their daily routine. Languages and cultural studies are a great passion of mine and I would be happy to offer some help in languages to your children if that is something you would want! Available for immediate start and flexible hours.

What do you enjoy most about working with children?

Children have such wild imaginations and I enjoy engaging with them in make believe games and fun activities.
