Hello my name is Tahira, I am a professional, qualified nanny with 16 years childcare experience.
I am married and have three daughters of my own.
I have a driving license so would be willing to travel if need be.
I am a non-smoker.
I am a hard working, honest, reliable, organised individual who is passionate about working with young children. Children respond well to my warm hearted, caring, nurturing approach.
Being a parent myself, I understand that your children are your world and you only want the very best individual to care for them.
An individual you can place your trust in and to:
care for your child
keep your child safe
play with your child and have lots of fun!
Help your child learn and develop
provide balanced meals for your child
Build a good relationship with your family
Follow your rules and routines
I love what I do and believe that I am that person who would care for your children the way I would want my own children to be cared for.
I have been involved in the education and childcare industry for 16 years.
As well as my experience as a nanny, I am also a trained primary school teacher and have had experience in many other areas of the education sector such as key worker, nursery assistant and classroom assistant.
I also have three children of my own so have lots of mummy experience!
I have worked with many families looking after children of all ages and we have built good relationships. This has been both full time and part time roles on long and short term contracts. Experience can be discussed further at interview and
references are available upon request.
I enjoy working as a nanny and adore the children in my care. I love to find familes that I can build close working relationships with.
I feel that my teaching experience is a bonus as I have a lot of subject knowledge and understand exactly how to help children learn and achieve to the very best of their ability. I understand that all children are different and develop at different stages to one another.
I also have experience working with children who have EAL (English as an Additional Language) and SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disability).
Ba(Hons) degree in 'Early Years Education'
PGCE (specialising in Early Years)
A* Child Development
BEd in Early Years
First Aid Trained (specialising in babies and young children)
Trained in Safe-Guarding young children.
I am currently available for work so please get in touch if interested!
I currently have my two year old daughter who I bring to work with me on occasional days. She is left with my husband when he is not working. He works early mornings and is often home early so dependant on days and hours needed she may not be with me at all so please get in touch to discuss this further.
Please refer to my reviews on this profile page or references (upon request) to see the great friendships that have been built over many years between my own children and the families I work with.
I can provide references upon request.
Please do get in touch and we can discuss any of your requirements in further detail!

We have been very lucky to find Tahira, she has been looking after our 3 years old child. From day 1 our kid was extremely happy with her. Tahira is reliable, super kind, friendly and responsible. She has deep knowledge and experience with kids which converts Tahira in an extremely reliable person.
One thing we noticed from the very beginning, is that she motivates key habits like hygiene for instance and routines that the kid has established already.
Due to our jobs, we could't commit to be at home every day at the same time so she showed flexibility to facilitate pick ups and remove stress from our side.
We can not recommend more Tahira to anyone looking for a nanny.
We are very lucky to have found Tahira to meet our childcare needs as she is reliable, friendly, and thoughtful in the way that she makes the most of the time with the children. She has many years of experience of looking after children, has excellent communication skills and she brings an element of fun to her work. I would highly recommend Tahira to anyone who is looking for a nanny.
I would highly recommend Tahira’s services as a nanny. She has been very caring and a great asset in helping us as new parents who were both work full time. Tahira worked for us for four days a week, four hours a day from October 2020 to May 2021 and started by looking after our six month old baby.
She had sole charge during her hours. Her responsibilities included changing nappies, taking her on walks, giving snacks and making lunches. Her knowledge and practical experience with kids makes her very qualified. She helped us with weaning our baby as well as with sleep routines. Besides this, Tahira also completed light household duties.
Tahira’s manner is wonderful, she is dependable and flexible and adapts to the families needs where possible. When she has brought her children with her, they have been very well behaved and had lovely interactions with our child.
I couldn’t recommend Tahira more to anyone looking for a nanny due to her professionalism, capabilities and her kind nature. We will miss her greatly.
Her employment with us ended as we moved out of the area.
We were absolutely thrilled to have Tahira as our nanny for several months this year. We could not have asked for a more perfect nanny. She was extremely conscientious, very reliable and completely trustworthy from our point of view and very pro-active. From our children's point of view she was loving, kind and lots and lots of fun.
Although she occasionally brought along her two utterly adorable young daughters, this never caused any problems at all. We had three children for her to look after (including one with ASD) and she was completely unflappable even with all five in her care. How she does it, I do not know, but she does. Especially as ours are not exactly relaxed children! Our children really loved her two as well.
She got on very well with the other parents in the playground at school and several of them have since told me they miss her and she was lovely. She was more than happy to organise playdates in either direction and pick up etc.
She was fabulous helping the children with their homework (her teaching qualification coming in very handy there!), making them practice their instruments, taking them to their numerous clubs, and keeping them entertained with exciting things to do in the holidays. She always left the house tidy and I cannot emphasise enough how wonderful she kept the children's rooms and their laundry, it was such a treat for us!
She was always gentle and patient with the children, but if they pushed too far she was quick to set firm boundaries which was exactly what we needed.
We were so sad when she gave her notice as she was relocating, as we'd all got very attached to her and she was very fond of us too. She is going to be a very hard act to follow and anybody who employs Tahira is extremely lucky!
