I hold a childcare level 3 qualification and I am ofsted registered as a Nanny. I have over 8 years of childcare experience with ages 4 months - 13 years of age. I have also previously worked within 2 nurseries, as a special needs teaching assistant in a primary school and I have worked for 6 private families as a nanny/housekeeper.
I am looking for an after school pick up babysitting role. I have availability on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Fridays. I’m also happy to babysit/work weekends if required.
I have the ability to multitask and manage every role that comes my way, managing school drop off/ pickups as well as outings with the children. I enjoy cooking and catering for the children in my care, I believe it is vital for children to have a healthy balanced diet to encourage their growth and development.
I've always wanted to work with children ever since I can remember, and feel I have found my vocation in life. I have gained important skills and knowledge since working with children and young people which I feel can benefit other families. I enjoy planning activities which are exciting and stimulating. I believe children should experience different outings to experience nature and the world around them and most importantly have fun whilst learning. I look forward to hearing from you soon :)

Managing time keepings to ensure all three children's unique routines were followed this included managing nap times, meals, personal care, bath and bedtime. Planning age appropriate activities for all three children that were fun, stimulating and varied was important to work towards their development goals. I also created an EYFS learning journal for all three children that consisted of pictures and observations of the children carrying out activities that I had done with them for their parents to keep. Taking the children on daily outings to the park, library, swimming, toddler groups and to soft play areas to enable the children to gain confidence and learn new skills.
Private Nanny – June 2016- June 2017
I have experience of working as a full-time nanny to two children aged 2 and 4 years old. It was an essential part of my role that I was organised in order to manage time keepings of any events and pre-organised activities such as swimming and gymnastics that the girls both attended. Taking the children on appropriate outings and being responsible for the children’s safety and welfare was of my highest priority. My other duties included managing school drop offs and pick up’s, planning and preparing healthy meals for the children, carrying out household chores including ironing, laundry and general household chores. Planning fun and exciting age appropriate activities for both children on a day to day basis was important to aid their development and prepare them for school. Working in partnership with both parents to incorporate their individual routines and standards of behaviour, this also included communicating with the school teachers to monitor progress and being able to effectively feedback any information to parents. Supporting the children with any transitions for example I supported the youngest with toilet training, positively providing rewards and giving praise was essential. My job role required me to be very flexible as I was often called upon at short notice due to the parent’s careers this included working on weekends and staying overnight when needed.
March 2016 – October 2016 - Manor Green Primary School
My role as a special support assistant in early years was to meet the care and learning needs of all the children within the classroom, by planning specific activities which challenged each child yet ensuring that these were appropriate for their age levels. I was a key person to 4 children and an important part of my role was to collect observations and plan next steps to continue to support the children’s development. Being able to adapt activities was important as some children were not meeting expected milestones in the curriculum and needed extra support and 1:1 sessions to help them achieve their potential. Working in partnership with multi-professionals is vital as often physiotherapists, speech and language therapists as well as other professionals required meetings to review children's development. Being able to communicate with a large number of children who were non-verbal was important, using sign language, PEC symbols, ALDS, objects of reference and other forms of communication meant that children were able to communicate with peers and teachers in their own way.
June 2014 – March 2016 ST.Margarets Nursery
I worked in a nursery setting with children aged 2-5 years old. I was a key worker to 10 children of all different developmental needs, planning specific activities to meet their ‘next steps’ was a very important part of my role to ensure the children were given opportunities to achieve their potential before leaving for school. Working well as a team and good organisation were essential to ensure the day to day routine of the nursery ran smoothly. Within my role I often had to work in partnership with other multi-professionals as some children within my key worker group required extra support this required excellent communication to liaise with other professionals. Being able to adapt the EYFS learning goals is essential to ensure every child is given opportunities to learn and develop. I was responsible for carrying out parent’s evenings with my key children’s parent’s twice a year, excellent communication is important to give opportunities to discuss children’s learning and development to enable to work in partnership with parents.
September 2012- 2013 – Personal Care Assistant
My role was to look after 2 children aged 5 and 7 years of age with Autism Spectrum Syndrome and global development delay. Working closely with the children’s parents to provide support and working in partnership with the children’s school was important to be able to relay information regarding the children’s targets, this enabled me to be able to plan effective activities to support their learning. Meeting the children’s care needs and supporting them with toileting. Managing the children’s behaviour by having a clear yet calm approach was paramount as they often became upset and angry. Good organisation and planning was crucial as the children are non-verbal and communicate using PEC symbols and by using ‘now and next’ symbols to help with transitions throughout the day. Good adaptability and the ability to work well under pressure are required as no two days were ever the same. Building a trusting relationship with both the children and their parents was of high importance as the children thrived on feeling safe and secure. I also experienced taking both children on outings, ensuring the children were kept safe was vital and so a risk assessment was carried out along with other precautions.

Jade started out really nice with the children and was on time and our kids loved her but unfortunately she turned out to be a nightmare to communicate with , she was meant to be babysitting on a particular day when my wife and I were working and we’d agreed with her to look after the kids on that day but she failed to turn up, didn’t call us to let us know or send any texts, we tried to call her , left a voicemail and text messages but she just didn’t get in touch with us. Then a few days later I saw her and her boyfriend at the ASDA supermarket and approached her to say hello but she completely ignored me and walked right past me as if she’d never seen me before. This is the same woman I allowed close to my kids and trusted her with their lives only to treat me in this way. I would let you be the judge. I’m sure I’m not the first. An explanation as to why she didn’t turn up would have been acceptable but in her case there was no communication. This is wrong on all levels. I don’t trust her to look after other people’s kids if this is her attitude.
Conclusion don’t waste your time with her.
I must mention I had to take my children with me to work , they’re only 4 and 5 and as a result lost money on the job I was doing as I’m self employed and the lady I was working for had to look after my kids while I was working for her ! I feel extremely annoyed with Jade. A narrative of her side would be acceptable why she did this to us. My kids didn’t go to bed till 10pm that night because of Jade not turning up or letting us know ahead of time what was going on !!!
