Hello there, thank you for looking at my profile. My name is Max Kalogirou and I am a 26 year old freelance male nanny and I also work part time at a local nursery. I am also a Dad to my daughter, Nova. I am currently looking for more ad hoc work in the daytimes and also babysitting work on weekday evenings and also in the daytime and at the evening at the weekends which would be for families looking for a consistent babysitter for the future (I have a vast amount of babysitting experience.) I am also OFSTED registered so can accept childcare vouchers. I am based in Molesey but I am able to travel to all surrounding areas in Surrey and also in Middlesex.
I have currently worked with children for 10 years since I was 16 and have done previous babysitting for numerous families at the nursery I currently work at as well as a number of families in the Surrey/Middlesex area.
I am a confident, trustworthy, outgoing and reliable young individual, who wants to offer the highest level of childcare and I also have a driving enthusiasm for working with children. I absolutely love my job and the rewards it gives me every day. I am incredibly passionate about the way I carry out my role also.
I am here to offer a completely different experience as well as a male babysitter who has a wealth of experience in the industry, I am very sporty and outdoorsy and love the job that I do. I have just recently undertaken a level 2 forest school course to enhance my understanding and experience of outdoor activities. I love organising different activities as well - I feel I’m a very creative person and different in the way I approach activities.
I have had senco experience, completing senco courses through my current employer as well as working with and for families of children who have SENCO needs, autism, ASD.
I currently work flexible hours at nursery meaning I choose my current hours. I do not drive but have my own means of getting to and from destinations.
I would always like to meet a family first and have a chat so you can get to know me a lot better also.

Before I worked in a nursery i did children's parties at Sandown ski centre for around a year from the age of 16. (November 2011 till October 2012.)
I have a vast amount of babysitting experience, which began in January 2013 when I was 18 and would now love to further the amount of babysitting I currently do.
In our most recent OFSTED report at my nursery we recieved a level 1 (outstanding) from OFSTED from January 2018 my room, preschool, achieved outstanding as well.
I have also coached Little lions rugby on a Sunday morning in Esher - this consists of teaching 20 2-4 year olds basic rugby skills as well as gross motor skills and enhancing their physical development.
In November 2017 I completed my Level 2 Forest school assistant course as I absolutely love working in the outdoors also.
I have been trained in speech and language also and have helped a few children at the nursery I currently work in with their speech delay.

Max was very flexible in coming to help look after my daughters who are 4.5yrs and 1.5yrs. He bonded with both of them quickly and was very helpful with home schooling. He fitted in quickly and had planned lots of fun activities for them. They absolutely loved him and asked when he could come again. I would definitely recommend him. Thank you Max!
Max has been manny to our two boys (5 and 3) and the boys absolutely love him! He has helped us out so much whilst both working and been so friendly, flexible and accommodating. We cannot recommend Max highly enough!
My daughter went to the nursery/preschool that Max works at. She is now 9 years old and I have found him again through this site. My daughter absolutely loves him! When we received a message from Max her eyes lit up. She remembers how attentive, fun and friendly he is. An absolute star and a pleasure to know. He always fully reported my daughter's day at the nursery and he helped her out greatly with her confidence.
Max looked after our daughter (6) and son (4) for ~6 weeks when they returned to school and nursery after lockdown.
Max was friendly and flexible from the start, he made such an effort with the children including doing crafts and taking them on day trips. He was reliable and prevented any childcare worries for us.
The kids loved having him around and we were really pleased too, we’d definitely recommend him.
