About Me

I am an early years teacher/nanny with a focus on gentle/attachment parenting.

I have 16 years experience working in the early years in various roles; as a nanny, head of baby room, deputy manager, manager of pre-school school and head of child and practitioner development.

I believe that adults are important role models for children and as such should treat them with respect, kindness, empathy and compassion. I am very used to tailoring teaching methods to meet a child's specific needs and interests and thoroughly enjoy watching them learn and develop. I also love the care and nurture that I am able to give them.

I know the Early Years Curriculum extremely well, having used it every day in the past few years, and previous curriculums prior to that. I am also well read in RIE parenting (Magda Gerber and Janet Lansbury), Attachment Parenting (I co-run a local parenting group), Montessori and Steiner education.

My Experience

I have worked with children (newborn to age 12) for 16 years; latterly as a private nanny, and before that as a SENCo and deputy and manager of a pre-school and formerly as a nanny for families and in private nursies.

I have also worked within Social Services (Child Protection and Children in Care) where I have run parenting programmes (teaching parents basic care of children, stimulation and emotional warmth, attachment, behaviour management and routines).

I have worked with children with allergies (including my own who have both begin life with CMPA) and am very experienced with children with additional needs.
