Hello brighton! I am 26 and I am a pianist and choral leader having completed a music degree at Sussex University (2015 grad). Alongside this I have worked with children since I was 13 - children are our future afterall and I believe our life's greatest achievement is to nurture and support our next generation.
I have a totally child-led approach to childcare - exploring the world through the child's eyes are generally how days are spent - finding out about the children in my care and what they like and who they are - creating gentle boundaries for them so they can find their freedom. Music and singing, arts and crafts and other creative pursuits are generally what I find myself doing. I also like us to spend as much time as possible exploring outside in parks/ at the beach/ walks in the wood etc. I also love a baby/toddler group and soft play where children can be sociable as well as learning many other skills.
I don't currently think I have space for another full time charge (unless your needs did fit with the limited time I do have) but I am looking for temporary work - ad-hoc or emergency childcare - evening or overnight care especially.
My ideal charge would caring for a baby (or babies) or young toddler(s) or a child with special needs.
I've worked as a full time nanny for 4.5 years with children from newborn to 10 year olds (including twins from 11 months -2.5years). The majority of my nanny placements have started when the children were 1 or under 1 so I have lots of experience with infants.
Previously to this I have worked since I was 13 doing temporary childcare such as babysitting and as a temporary nursery assistant while studying.
I have 11 summers experience of working with children and young adults with special needs (including learning disabilities, autism, developmental delay, mental health issues and more)
I have an experiencial wealth of knowledge about babies and toddlers from feeding to toileting and beyond. As part of my childcare course I had to study the EYFS and child development and the 7 stages of learning and I do actually put these things into practice in my day to day work.
I'm currently working 4 days a week with a 4 month old, 3 year old & 4 year old (primarily the baby as the elder children are at school) and one day with a 2 year old.
I am also a piano teacher.
