I'm a 24 year old childcarer with 8 years worth of first hand experience and many interests.
I am a keen musician; I sing mostly as I am signed to a record label and was the alto leader of the Manchester United Foundation Choir, but I also play guitar, piano, drums and the ukulele. Other interests include football, acting, dancing, gym, basketball, traveling and skydiving!
My passion for working with children has increased hugely over the years; 1 reason being that my mum has been a registered childminder for 12 years, allowing me to be alongside her whilst working and learning more and more as time went on.
I have completed the Prince’s Trust business course and am now on the road of opening up my own nursery, giving me more of a strive to do well in the jobs I have now.
In terms of my personality, I would say I am very easy to get along with, highly punctual and extremely patient! (This has been tested many times, I'm sure you can all relate)
I have always been mature and level-headed for my age but when it comes to caring for children I have the ability to turn into any princess, Jedi, unicorn, paw patrol character, ninja or even a professional firefighter. (These and more have ALL been tested. Multiple times)
I was a volunteer with the organisation Jigsaw, where I worked with others assisting young adults with disabilities on days out with this group. I was a volunteer there for 4 years.
This profile has allowed me to be a babysitter for over 8 years now, in which time I have babysat for children from newborn age (3 weeks old) to children who are 14 years old and all ages in between.
Over this time, I have also cared for children with autism, seizures, mental health issues and ADHD, as well as having experience with twins.
My first full time nannying job (2016) required me to care for 3 children from the ages of 4 months, 2 years and 4 years. I was with this lovely family for 10 months and gained plenty of new experience as a nanny and caring full time for younger children.
Alongside the usual cleaning, preparing food and homework tasks, other personal tasks included:
•educational games suited to each child's age and personal development
•motor, educational and speech development
•Finding any areas in need of improvement and encouraging this through creative play, outdoor fun and more (pictures can be provided)
I believe that a happy household is very important especially from such young ages, so I did my best to ensure the happiness of the children was at the forefront of anything I did.
In July 2018, I stayed in Ashton for a week whilst the 4 year old, 9 year old and 10 year old’s mum went on holiday. This was a completely new experience of caring for children on a full time live-in basis and we had a fun packed week filled with picnics, roller skating, zip wire fun, pizza making and more!
I have had 2 year’s worth of nursery experience including working in an ‘outstanding’ rated nursery & during lockdown I have been nannying for 3 children and taking online courses, building on my experience and knowledge every day.
My last nannying job required me to care for 5 amazing children between the ages of 6 months - 6 years, so I learned new things everyday as well as building up my experience, knowledge, patience and creativity.

Tameka has been the perfect fit for our family. She is incredibly flexible with dates and times and it's really put us at ease, we don't have to worry about our working hours. From the get go the children loved her and she really engaged with them and they have so much fun. They love the science experiments Tameka sets up for them and love to tell me about what they've been up to. She even takes both our children to their after school clubs which I was worried they would have to give up when I started back at work. I also love that Tameka sends a run down of the children's day and lots of pictures at the end of the day. Definitely one of the best decisions we've made!
Tameka has been looking after our 16 month old son for several weekends now and has really impressed us. This is the first time we had hired a nanny and so we were a little apprehensive but she put all of our worries to rest after the first meeting. She clearly has a lot of experience with children and knows exactly how to entertain and look after them. We can see our son's enjoyment every time she is here and it has been a pleasure to know our son is in such trusted hands when we need it
She went above and beyond our expectations, creating all sorts of new activities for our son to enjoy. In addition she has always been punctual and very polite which we have really appreciated
Unfortunately let us down at the last minute. Very disappointing.
Tameka is an incredibly warm and caring person. She has a lovely way of interacting and bonding with little children and the thought and knowledge she puts into this is evident. From an adult perspective I found her open and honest communication very helpful. She is reliable and I always felt my little one was very safe with her. She comes highly recommended and I look forward to working with her again in the future.
Couldn’t ask for a nicer person to look after my son! Tameka is such a lovely warm and welcoming person and I feel very comfortable with leaving my son with her! She is very flexible and will always try to cater to when you need her help!
