About Me

Hello, Im looking for a family to care for 1-2 days a week. I have 25 years experience and hold a current DBS certificate.

I am 43 years old, married and have a 7 year old and 15 month old twins. Im looking for a part time position after returning from maternity leave.

I have over 25 years of experience working as a nanny mostly in a sharing capacity for families in the Brentwood and Shenfield area, I have gained an extensive range of skills and knowledge over the years.

My ability to organise and multi-task would ensure the smooth running of your home creating a happy and stress free environment for children. My nature would be described as loving and caring and my strengths would be organisational and attention to detail.

I own my own car and have been driving for 25 years.

Hobbies & Interests

Swimming, book club, walking, socialising

My Experience

I have been a nanny since I was 18 years old, after finishing 1 year at college attending a business administration course. Then I worked at Chelmsford College in the Administration Department, where I heard of an opportunity to work with children. For two years I did part time childcare assisting a registered childminder, and then moved to fulltime child minding.

I started nannying full time in parents' houses in 1998. My first family was with 2 boys (2 and 6). I continued with this family until 2003, by which time the children were older and the family did not require me.

Holidays: design activities to meet the needs of all the children.

In the holidays, I would also supervise their friends coming over to play.
