I am a fully qualified and extremely experienced childcarer. I have looked after children aged newborn-10 years old for around 20 years. I have worked in a variety of settings, in teams and on my own. I take my ongoing professional development very seriously and am always training and doing courses to keep my current skills up to date and learn new ones. There is no aspect of looking after children, or the challenges this can sometimes bring that phases me, as I am confident in my skills and abilities to work with parents and children alike.

My Experience

In my 20+ years of working with children, I have gained a varied and comprehensive range of experience with children from birth - 10 years old. I have worked in private nursery's, schools, and creche's, so am familiar with early learning and education including providing and teaching activities in line with the EYFS. I have had sole (proxy parent) care of children through day/night while parents were away. I was also a family support team manager for 7 years where I visited families in their homes to help with common issues such as toileting, feeding, sleep routines, bonding and attachment, and behaviour management. I also delivered parenting and behaviour management classes to groups of parents. My colleagues affectionately called me 'the supernanny of the town'! In this role, I was the named child protection officer, so am very well aware of safeguarding children. I am also qualified and have taught baby massage, baby yoga, and baby sign language classes (I am fluent in Sign Language). I have worked with children with additional learning and physical needs (Autism, ADHD, Down's Syndrome, Physical Disabilities), and am confident with these also.

In recent years I have done ad-hoc nanny work/proxy parenting for a few families. The children have been 3 years old, 1 year old twins, a 7 year old (proxy parent), and some have had learning difficulties and/or speech and language delay. I provide suitable activities for the children, carry out their basic care, changing, feeding, bathing, school runs, laundry, cooking etc. I have also managed to support the parents to get their little ones into a bedtime routine and sleeping through the night in their own beds. For the last 4 years I have been a nanny for 4 lovely children (now 8,5, 4 year old twins!) who I continue to look after. I have recently been doing more night nanny/maternity nurse work (nights) for babies from newborn up. I carry out sleep coaching consultaions and general advice visits for a variety of families.

Michelle is seriously the gold star of all nannies. She looked after our son during the summer who was just under a year and not only did she introduce me as a new mum to lots of local activities, but she also helped us greatly with sleep training our boy. She is enthusiastic, active and everything a child would want in a nanny. Everything in her profile is 100% true! For us as parents she was patient, understanding and totally empowering. She really is the best and worth her weight in gold.
