I have been working with children for over 25 years and am experienced at caring for children from birth upwards . I am a qualified nanny, I am Ofsted registered and fully insured. I have an up to date First Aid qualification and a clean driving license. I have my own car which is insured for carrying children as part of my employment.
I have brought up three boys of my own.
I enjoy working with children and helping them to develop. I believe fresh air and exercise are as important as their five a day (I am happy to cook for the children in my care and to ensure they have healthy meals). I keep the children in my care busy and active.
I am experienced at managing the different needs and activities of sibling groups.
I will ensure that your children are happy, secure and feel loved - caring for them in your absence in the way you would care for them if you were home.
Private Nanny for over 10 families and I have also had experience within a nursery setting. I previously worked within the charity 'Save the Children'.

Julie has been looking after our children for approximately 18 months. She is looking for a new position only because we are relocating to Singapore. Julie currently looks after our daughter (age 6 1/2) and son (age 3 1/2). Julie has developed a good working relationship with us and both our children are happy and safe with her. Although an older nanny Julie has much more energy and get-up-and-go than many youngsters. Our son is a bundle of energy and she manages him brilliantly. Julie's experience is a real bonus. She sets clear, consistent and loving boundaries for our children. She is also fun and she links in to a strong network of local nanniesI was initially worried about hiring an older nanny, who I was worried might be set in her ways or unwilling to adapt to 'my way' of doing things. Julie however has fitted in with our family well and she has always been willing to go the extra mile and to work evenings and Saturdays when asked. Julie has not been ill or otherwise let us down. I recommend Julie as a nanny. Your children will be well looked after in her care.
Julie has looked after my little boy for 5 months (he is 3). It doesn't sound that long but she is very much part of the family and has fit in very quickly. We won't need a nanny from the end August onwards as I am taking a break from work, otherwise we wouldn't be letting her go!
Our little boy loved his previous nanny but she went on maternity leave. I was worried how he would adapt to a new nanny but it was all seamless.
Julie has lots of energy and she always has my little boy up and out doing alsorts of different things. You can tell she has had 3 boys of her own! She is very proactive in finding different clubs and places to visit to keep him stimulated. She has vast experience as well so handles everything in a calm and considered way. I do feel that even though Julie has such experience, she does respect what we want and they way we do things as parents.
Julie cooks for us every day as well and is a brilliant cook!
I would not hesitate in recommending Julie as a nanny.
Julie was employed by my husband and I from 3 November 2014 to February 2015 as a mother’s help/nanny to assist with the care of our three children who were 3.5yrs, 1 and newborn at the time that Julie started. Generally Julie assisted me in the care of the three children, but has also had sole charge care of the eldest two children when I was recovering after the birth of our youngest son or when I have been occupied with other activities.
While Julie was employed by us Julie demonstrated her ability to work competently with all three children despite their different needs owing to their various ages. Our eldest son was at pre-school full-time and Julie has helped us by regularly undertaking the school run to pick up our son from school. Julie’s time generally revolved around the care of our 1 year old daughter, i.e. playing with her, giving her all her meals, nappy changes, putting her to bed for her naps, dressing her and giving her milk to her.
Julie devoted a lot of her time to fostering our daughter’s gross motor skills development. When Julie first began her employment with us, our daughter was not crawling or moving from tummy to sitting. Julie spent a great deal of time practicing exercises with our daughter, e.g. tummy to sitting and vice versa, crawling, pulling herself up to standing, cruising, transferring from one piece of furniture to another and walking by herself with a walker toy.
Julie was proactive in finding local playgroups to take our daughter to in order that she can socialise with other children and play with different toys to further develop her motor skills. Julie also found an after school activity for our eldest son to attend once a week at the local library (listening to a story followed by making a craft), which he now thoroughly enjoys and it is an event that must not be missed!
Julie assisted us in following a strict routine for our eldest son and daughter, including specific nap, meal and bath times. This meant that both children knew what was coming next and were in bed by a specific time to get a good nights rest.
Julie prepared healthy, well-balanced and nutritious meals and snacks for the children, with occasional treats such as cakes, and flapjacks, which Julie baked with our eldest son.
Our eldest son is very difficult and challenging when it comes to mealtimes. Julie reinforced the importance of table manners with him by making it a rule that he must stay sitting at the table while his sister is eating, even if he chooses not to eat his meal.
Julie encouraged our eldest son to ‘help’ in tidying up after he had undertaken activities or play.
Overall, I think that you can be confident when leaving your child in Julie's care that they will be well cared for in terms of fun play and activities as well as their nutritional needs and social interaction.
