Fully trained, Ofsted registered Nanny with over 16 years experience working with children from babyhood- secondary school age. During the lockdown I was awarded a Certificate of Excellence by Childcare.co.uk.
Reliable, responsible, caring and loving. I adore the children I work with and am passionate about nurturing their growth and development. I create an environment in which children can be themselves and thrive.
I love what I do and each day is an adventure. I always spend the morning at singing groups, playgrounds, parks, bubble clubs, local activities. We have fun playing games and we walk, scooter, bike everywhere at the children’s pace taking in the environment and learning opportunities around us.
I believe that routine helps create a sense of security and comfort. We have a set routine which may include school drop off for older siblings followed by an activity which is both stimulating and educational. You will often find us in the park or playground and we might even stay for a picnic lunch before heading home to prepare the supper and have a bit of quiet time, drawing, reading, napping, singing, talking depending on the child’s needs, before heading out for school pick up. Once all the children are together, I take pride in creating a family environment where their emotional and social needs are met. Both the older and younger children in a nanny-share learn a lot from being with a mix of ages.
I prepare and cook healthy, nutritious and tasty food. The kids love my homecooked meals and dinnertime is an opportunity to come together, chat, have fun and learn polite manners and helpful behaviours naturally.
I am extremely safety conscious. I am very protective of the children I work with and their health and safety is of paramount importance, especially during these unusual times. I have my Paediatric First Aid Certificates and Child Safeguarding Level 3 Certificate. Children’s happiness and wellbeing is very dear to me, and I always try to achieve it.
I am hardworking, committed and loyal. My qualities are reflected in my work, in which I put absolutely 100%. I have excellent communication skills and enjoy very good working relationships with both parents and children.
I have been involved in childcare since my teens. I have about 16yrs of experience, and all my previous and current families to whom all tjose review come from are very willing to give me references.I have nurtured so many children, most of them am still in touch with. I worked for African Child Charity during my teens for 2 Saturdays a month from 2004-2008 where I helped in their Somali refugees' homework and play groups. I have got experience with TWINS CARE and NANNYSHARE

Cathy is an exceptional nanny who goes above and beyond the duties of the role providing a truly caring and loving environment in which children can be themselves and develop naturally. Cathy strikes the right balance between meeting the children's needs (including educational and social), encouraging good manners and having lots of fun! Our sons (1-2yrs and 5-6yrs at the time) have benefited tremendously from their time with Cathy (and they loved her amazing cooking too!). We were fortunate enough to have Cathy as our nanny for the Wed- Fri share and cannot recommend her or this share more highly.

Thanks so much Sarah for you kind and sweet words am greatly humbled. I always try to do my best, its a great pleasure that you trusted me with your boys precious and that I made an impact on their lives thats why I do this lovely job.
I love and will missed my boys but will keep in touch as much as possible.
Many many thanks again! Xxx
As part of a nanny share with 3 other children, Cathy has been looking after our 2 year old all day and our 4 year old after school 3 days per week for almost a year. She has a very kind and loving relationship with the children, she treats them all as individuals and helps them to develop in a way appropriate to their age and personality. She keeps the youngsters busy with plenty of fun activities and copes effortlessly with the crowd of five after school and in the holidays. A really lovely and reliable lady. Very happy to have found her.

Thanks so much Alice for your kind words, and thanks so much for sharing your beautiful daughters with me. We will miss them so much but as you already know we are looking forward to the lots of playdates to come.
Many many thanks!
Cathy has been our sole charge nanny for 2 days per week for our twin daughters for the past year.
Cathy is a tremendous nanny and I trust her completely. She is organised, reliable and makes looking after twins easy! My daughters absolutely love her. Cathy is genuinely interested in their development and manages to balance teaching 'right from wrong' with lots of warmth, positivity, fun and activities. She also has some great techniques for feeding on those difficult days. I have observed Cathy is always prepared, always on time and never takes the 'easy option' when managing the girls (like mum might every so often!).
I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Cathy to future employers.

Wow! I am absolutely emotional and speechless Toni! Thanks so much for your sweet review. I am glad that my work is tremendous to you and I promise to keep up the standards. Many thanks for giving me the chance to looking after your gorgeous girls! Its was a challenge worth taking. Am happy to work for your great family!
Cathy looks after our two kids with another family (total of four kids!) and is fantastic at it. She is totally reliable, dedicated, loving, conscientious, fun and committed. She takes them out every day without fail and has a brilliant grip on the local activities. She makes nutritious lunches and dinners every day and always has a smile. The kids adore her and we really cannot recommend her highly enough.

Many thanks Hannah for your kind words!!
Cathy has been looking after my 2 and a half year old daughter since mid January and we've been really pleased with her. She's a very warm person and has been kind and gentle with our daughter. She cooks her tasty lunches, that are healthy and include lots of vegetables, and as we have asked, only gives her limited snacks involving fruit.
We live in a flat so it's important that our daughter goes outside - and Cathy is fantastic at taking her to local parks, playgrounds, libraries and our leisure centre to do soft play. She also took her to a local farm to look at the animals.
Cathy always tidies up and washes things after lunch, so I get home to a clean and tidy flat. It's been a great help having Cathy with us - we've been so lucky to have found her.

Many thanks Nicky!
