Hi, my name is Chrissy and I live in the Taunton area. I am an easy going and calm person and am very devoted to giving children the very best start in life. I enjoy baking, crafting and being outdoors all of which are useful when it comes to thinking up activities do do with the children in my care. I love animals and am more than happy to work in a home with pets. I have a gorgeous spaniel puppy who comes to work with me and who the children adore.
I have my own car and a clean driving licence
I am also OFSTED registered, DBS checked and fully insured.
Since leaving college at 18 I have worked full time in nurseries, I started out working in a county council nursery for 4 years where I had experience of looking after children aged 3 months to 2 years
Currently I am working as a live out nanny for a family with a 5 year old boy with special needs and a 1 year old girl full time during term time. I have been with this family for 4 years now. In addition to this I care for another family with a 5 year old boy and 3 year old girl during the school holidays.
October 2014 to August 2015 I worked as a full time live out nanny for a two year old little girl in Tiverton. this post was maternity cover and has now ended
Previous to this I worked as a full time nanny to 3 girls aged 1, 3 and 9
I worked at my most recent nursery for nearly 6 years taking care of babies from as young as 3 months providing all their day to day care, and creating stimulating environments for them to play, learn and grow.
Over the years i have been fortunate enough to care for children of different ages and with various needs, although a large part of my experience is with children aged 3 months to 2 years.
In addition to this I have 2 nieces 2 years old, and 5 weeks old, with another niece due in December. I am lucky enough to be able to be able to spend lots of time caring for my nieces, including having the eldest to stay once a week and come to work with me on a Monday and Wednesday. All this meaning i have plenty of newborn experience.
10 GCSE's including English, Maths and Science
BTEC National diploma in Early years level three
I am potentially looking for a new full time roll with children aged 0-5 from July 2020 dependant on whether the youngest child I care for starts nursery when she turns 3. Please do send me a message for more information.

We had Chrissy as a Nanny for our 3 boys for a 6 week period and she was wonderful. The children really enjoyed their time with her. 3 boys can be a handful to say the least but she managed their care professionally, in a firm but fair manner. She is always on time and flexible when I've been late finishing work. She did a lot of cooking with the boys and the house was always left clean and tidy too. She was very good at communicating things, with a brief handover each day. Chrissy is highly recommended and would be welcomed back at any time! We will definitely be using her in the future if she can help cover for babysitting of an evening or in the school half terms!
I had Chrissy look after my 3 children (a daughter aged 4 and twin boys of 15 months), for an afternoon when I was in Taunton attending a local wedding.
She engaged easily with my children and is extremely competent and caring. I immediately felt we had made the right choice as we waved them off to the local playground, and the photos she sent me later were a lovely touch, showing me that my children had enjoyed themselves thoroughly in her company.
She is friendly, punctual and polite in her dealings online and in person.
I cannot recommend her highly enough, and only wish we lived nearer each other so I could employ her more.
