About Me

After 17 years of London life, I relocated from London to the sunny North East.

I am a highly motivated, enthusiastic and optimistic nanny, with over fifteen years of child care experience, including caring for babies,twins, toddlers and young children, adapting quickly to the specific needs of different households. This is due to the fact that I have worked for both mono-cultural (English) and multi-cultural (Russian, French, Greek, American and Hungarian) households.

I am Ofsted registered and have worked both as a live-in and as a day nanny.

Over the last 15 years I have built on my passion for child care by exploring different approaches to children's education. I qualified as a Primary teacher in my native Hungary.

I firmly believe that the first five years of a child's life are absolutely vital, in terms of developing their future health, happiness, personal growth and learning achievements.

I love preparing fresh and nutritious meals from scratch, organising play dates and other social activities for the children in my charge. I am physically fit (a keen swimmer and practise yoga), a pianist who idolises Chopin and Mozart, as well as an art lover. I relish taking children into the fresh air, making music with them and face-painting. Even more beautiful than any composer's music is the laughter of happy children!

I would describe myself as patient, understanding, tolerant and extremely passionate about my work.

I was so nervous having to leave my daughter with a nanny before and after school while i was at work but with Sophies glowing references i gave it a try. I was put at ease almost instantly, regular picture updates and information throughout the day. Both my girls absolutely love her and can't thank her enough for everything she has done and is doing for us.

Zsofia watched my twin babies for nearly a year. She was a brilliant nanny and the children love her dearly. She's very skilled in her job. She was kind, fair, and very nurturing to their needs. She also watched my toddler daughter when needed.

Myself and my husband met Sophie at a few local parent/toddler groups. Our daughter (2yrs) was drawn to her fun, friendly, bubbly personality straight away and they became firm friends. We have used Sophie to nanny and babysit for a few months now and couldn't be happier with her. She has a great view and philosophy when it comes to kids which fits very well with us. We would thoroughly recommend her for any nannying position.

Zsofie is energetic, passionate about children and childcare, reliable and a great cook. Sociable and always enthusiastic, my children love her and she engages with little ones really well. Her English is perfect and so would be able to support children learning to read and write. She is very experienced. I would recommend her as a nanny.

Dear parents! I would recommend Sophie as a trustworthy nanny for your kids. She looked after my two very active and demanding boys. She organized their daily routine; including playtime, meals, outside walks. She took them to various playgroups and activities; picked up the eldest from the part time nursery; followed their sleeping routine; cooked great meals and overall entertained them. My kids loved spending time with her and let me go to work without crying :) Meet her!
