About Me

Hello My name is Julie, I am a very kind and caring OFSTED Registered Nanny and I enjoy helping people. Advanced DBS Checked, Child Protection Certificate, extensive OFSTED approved childcare qualifications, clean driving license, Paediatric First Aid Certificate and professional first aid kit. Anaphylaxis adrenaline pen trained and defibrillator trained. I live in Harrogate and have two lovely children aged 18 and 16. I decided to become a Nanny because I love working with young children. They are inspiring, inquisitive and amazing. I find it incredibly rewarding watching a child grow and develop and I would like to play a role in helping children reach their full potential. Your child will be welcomed into my loving care and made to feel safe, secure and extremely well cared for. I am looking for a permanent part time Nanny position. I aim to provide a wide range of stimulating and educational activities which will be based around your childs' current interests. We will have regular outings to local baby groups, The library, play parks, lovely walks and the Toy Library. I currently or have recently worked as a volunteer for six charities including The Air Ambulance, Harrogate and Knaresborough Toy Library, Age UK, Hearing Dogs for the Deaf, Medical Detection Dogs and Springboard Harrogate Homeless Project. I love to take extra special care of children from birth upwards. I am a very dedicated nanny who takes a great pride in her work. I specialize in caring for newborn babies up to primary school age. I was awarded the Childcare.co.uk Certificate of Excellence 2020. Thank you for reading my profile and I look forward to hearing from you.

My Experience

I currently work for a lovely long term family in Harrogate as a part time Nanny caring for their three children and the remainder of the week I work in a Super Nanny role helping a range of families to resolve problems and issues regarding their children. I have worked as a volunteer at Harrogate and Knaresborough Toy Library since May 2014 and have had eighteen years experience as a full time mum bringing up my own two lovely children and have always helped to run Toddler groups, Play Schools and after school clubs which my children attended during that time.

Julie has looked after my 11 month old twins on two occasions. Julie was very professional, qualified, friendly and highly experienced. She arrived on time and even turned up with her own toys. The babies loved spending time with Julie and she was fanatic with them (and with my dog too).
I’m hoping to use Julie lots in the future, I would highly recommend her.

Hello Lauren, Thank you very much for your lovely review, It is greatly appreciated. I think you meant to write fantastic and predictive text has changed it to fanatic! x
It is a pleasure to help you and your lovely family, including your adorable dog Wilma. Kind regards Julie.

As a visitor to the Harrogate area I required a sitter for my 8 year old daughter whilst I accompanied my son at his golf tournament nearby. Julie arrived armed with a car load of games and ideas for the two days. She arrived promptly with a huge smile each day and my daughter had a wonderful time in Julie's company. As a testimony to her commitment she came for a full 12 hour day with a bad back as she knew of my reliance on her. It is also worth mentioning Julie is a responsible driver.

I couldn't recommend her more!

Hello Andrea, Thank you for your lovely review, It is greatly appreciated. It was a pleasure to help you and your lovely family and I wish you all the best in the future. Please contact me again if you need my help in the Harrogate area again. Kind regards Julie

We used Julie for babysitting our three grandchildren whilst attending a family celebration. This was the first time that any of the three children had been left with a non-family member so there was a little apprehension on the part of both sets of parents. However, on her arrival, Julie immediately put everyone at ease with her friendly and professional approach leaving us to enjoy the function with no concerns.

I would not hesitate to engage Julie again if we are in the area with our grandchildren, or to recommend her highly to anyone requiring similar services, and have no doubt that she would perform any of the other duties she offers in the same professional and knowledgable manner.

Thank you Julie.

Hello John, Thank you for your lovely review, It is greatly appreciated. It was a pleasure to help you and your lovely family to enjoy a very special occasion and I wish you all the best for the future. Kind regards Julie.

Julie has been babysitting for my 1 year old son. She is excellent babysitter/nanny! She brings his favourite toys for him which is very helpful. When he was being sick she dealt with it perfectly. I and my husband really appreciate it on the day. We can feel safe and rely on her when we go out. Thank you very much Julie!

Hello Aya, Thank you for your lovely review it is greatly appreciated. It is a pleasure to help you and your lovely family. Kind regards Julie.

Julie has been a wonderful nanny to my 4 month old son for the last 6 weeks and continues to make him laugh and smile. Not only has she been a visible asset to his life but her focus on his development is paramount. Julie is good on paper but is even better in person. She has also been a huge support to myself and my husband - she is neat, tidy, punctual, no job is too big and most importantly a lovely lovely lady. I couldn’t recommend her more!
