I´m passionate about childcare and vocationally motivated, I absolutely love my job!!!
I believe in creating a positive, happy environment for children, one in which they feel protected and can thrive.
I´m a friendly, patient and easy-going person who is hard-working and takes the responsibilities that go with childcare seriously.
Very kind hearted & calm but firm & pro-active when I need to be.
I am a very outdoors person and love to get the children outside anytime possible. I think it´s really important for children to socialise with others. I also love to get messy and creative with messy play/art.
Really inspired by the Montessori approach.
I believe every child is an individual and needs to be treated that way and to get out of the way of their development as much as is possible/responsible. Learning from natural consequences and taking risks within a safe environment, encouraging lots of independence. On my experience it works amazingly and we will have a Happy confident child.
I find my job very rewarding. I love watching and helping the children in my care grow and develop. Knowing I have been a part of that is the best of the feelings!
I have over eight years of experience working with children and their families.
My experience is with children of a variety of ages from birth to ten. I have plenty of baby experience (including new borns) and i specially enjoy them!
I have Excellent and checkable References.

Vicky has been looking after our 2 girls (4 and 2 1/2) since October 2014 and we couldn’t have managed without her. You can tell she really loves her job.
I work from home which isn't the easiest set up for Vicky, but she just gets on with it. The girls absolutely love her and when Vicky looks after them, they never get upset, which is pretty amazing, especially for a toddler who is constantly testing boundaries. They listen to her straight away (I wish they did that with me) - She is a toddler whisperer!
When she started, our youngest was only a few weeks old and Vicky showed excellent skills caring for a small baby, whilst keeping our toddler safe, happy and entertained.
She clearly loves children and has both a natural ability with them and extensive knowledge and experience. She understands the different stages of child development and adapts activities so that the girls have fun learning. She is extremely patient and always has a positive approach. Vicky interacts constantly with both children, talking and singing with them. This impacted very positively on their language skills. She is super proactive, suggesting activities within the home or researching local playgroups and activities. She sends us lots of photos of what they are up to during the day which is really lovely, especially as she’s an amazing photographer.
A few months ago, with our eldest in preschool, we decided to nanny-share with another family. Vicky took on the responsibility of an extra child, who was 10 months at the time. Again, she manages brilliantly, especially during the school holidays when she has 3 under 5s in her care and still manages to plan lots of outdoor activities with them. I’m not sure where she finds all that energy, but she is a godsend!
All in all, Vicky is extremely professional, reliable and trustworthy. But more than that, she is part of our family. She has stood by us through thick and thin and we are so grateful to have her in our life.
A true child care professional. She spent just one morning with my 2 year old daughter (so far) and my little girl was giving her cuddles before she left. I felt truely at ease leaving my daughter with her. Couldn't have gone better. Plus she sent me lovely pictures of all the fun they were having. Thank you Vicky :)

Thanks a million Catz!
What an artistic morning we had. Anytime , it was my pleasure!
I can highly recommend Vicky. Excellent communication prior to the day we needed her. Gave us text and photo updates on our children and let us know when they were asleep. Vicky was really friendly and our 9 and 6 year old boys thought she was great. Thanks Vicky, we'll definitely see if you're available next time we're in Manchester.
Response by Vicky on 26/02/2017:
Thank you very much guys ! I appreciate it. See you next time!
My two kids (8 and 5 yo) were a bit nervous only having being babysat by family before but Vicky put them straight at ease. Both warmed to her quickly and are looking forward to seeing her again. Thanks again, we will definately be in touch soon.

Despite the keys incident, I had a great evening with them and I will see you guys, again , in April , thank you very much for the review.
Vicky looked after our 11 weeks old son while my partner and I went out for a tea. From the first time we exchanged our messages Vicky was very informative, accommodating and most importantly patient. She provided me with all requested paperwork and impressed me with quick response time and text message confirmation once everything was set up.
Vicky was great with Julien from the moment she stepped into our house. What I appreciated the most was several text messages with the pictures sent to us during our time away, which put my mind at ease. She clearly understood my anticipation of being away from my baby and was happy to help as much as she could.
When we came back our baby was changed, fed, napped and looked very content.
We will be definitely asking Vicky to look after Julien again!
