About Me

Hello my name is Tahira, I am a professional, qualified nanny with 15 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
Be responsible
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.

My Experience

I have been involved in the childcare industry for 15 years.
I have been a nanny, teacher, key worker, nursery assistant, classroom assistant and babysitter.

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).

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!
