About Me

Hi everyone. I’m a nanny with 9 years childcare experience. The family I currently work for my contract is due to end in July 2022. I am looking for a new position to start from then. I have a clean driving licence, DBS check, first aid and lots of references to provide. Please DM me if you have any questions??

My Experience

Mothers help/Nanny role: September 2021 - Current
Age of children: 3 months and 4 years

I started nannying for this family in September 2021 when their baby girl turned 3 months old. The father worked full time 5 days a week, 1 day working from home. The mother was on maternity leave which meant we were able to share the roles between us.

My role was mothers help and nannying for the eldest child. I would start my work day at 8am where I would come in and prepare breakfast for the eldest child before getting him ready for school. I would then do the school run whilst mum would stay home and breastfeed the baby. When I would return to the home after the school run the baby would usually be asleep having her morning nap. Whilst she was sleeping I would start my morning duties, this included: unloading/loading the dishwasher, wiping down the high chair, putting on the children’s laundry/emptying the tumble dryer, putting away any of the children’s clean laundry, tidying the play room and children’s bedrooms. The baby would usually wake from her morning nap around 10am. I would change her nappy and get her dressed ready for our day of activities ahead. Usually we would have a baby class scheduled or if not we would meet at a local park/soft play along with my other nanny friends and their children they mind. Depending on what time the baby last breastfed we would be out for 3/4 hours making sure we was home in time for her next feed. She would usually go back down around 11:30 for her afternoon nap. I would cuddle or rocked to sleep in her next to me. Whilst she napped I would again check the washing machine/tumble dryer and have my own lunch. I would then also prepare dinner for when the eldest child returned home from school. These meals were always home cooked and fresh on the day mainly using Annabelle Karmel or Joe Wicks recipes. At 3pm would be the time I left to go and pick up the eldest from school, if the baby was awake from her afternoon nap she would come with me to do the school run, if she was still asleep mum would be home to watch her. Weather depending we would walk or drive to the school as it was local to their home. In the afternoon I would prepare a healthy snack for the eldest to have and then we would head out for the afternoon. Sometimes we would go to the park, swimming or soft play all depending on what he wanted to do. He would have dinner around 5pm and then I would finish my day at 6pm.

Nanny Role: June 2020 – September 2021
Age of children: 18 months and newborn

I started nannying for this family in June 2020 when they welcomed their daughter. The father works full time Monday-Friday and occasionally travels away for work. The mother was on maternity leave and we shared the caregiving role. Me and the mother would share responsibility of the children equally, however sometimes I would have sole charge of both children 2 years and 3 months (to date). I adapted my hours and changed the routines to suit both of the children’s needs when required, and to align with the parents work schedules as these could change frequently.

My day would start at 8am when I would arrive and make the toddler his breakfast. Usually around 9am I would get the toddler ready for the day ahead, dressing him appropriately for the weather. I would pack his bag, making sure this contained fresh water, nappies, snacks and a change of clothes. We would usually head out for the day around 9:30am/10am for our daily activity – I planned days out and social groups for the week in advance for us to attend. We would head home around 11:30am where I would then prepare the toddler a meal for his lunch. The toddler usually napped from 12:30pm/1pm to around 3pm/3:30pm. Whilst he was napping I would have sole care of the 3-month-old baby. This would be my time to feed, play, encourage tummy time and put her to nap whilst the toddler was asleep. If both children were asleep at the same time in the afternoon, I would cook fresh food for the dinner in the evening. Once the toddler awakes from his nap, I would have prepared a snack for him to have in the afternoon. We usually then head out around 4pm for an afternoon activity, whether this be a social group or a trip to the park to meet other nannies. Around 5pm the toddler would have dinner, I would sit with him at the table and also eat with him to encourage his use of cutlery and his table manners. He would then have TV time from 5:30pm-6pm to let his dinner go down before bath and bedtime. Whilst he was having TV time this was my chance to wash up and clean from dinner before my working day was over.



Nanny Role: November 2019 – June 2020
Age when started: 8 months - age to current date: 1 year

I started nannying for this family due to the parent returning back to work from maternity leave. The mother works full time Monday - Friday on an alternate shift rota. One week she will work early mornings and the following week late afternoons. I have sole charge of the baby from 5:30am - 9:30am, where I then take her to the nursery I currently manage. Presently at my full time job, I am not required to work on a Friday, therefore I nanny the baby in line with her mothers alternating shifts. Typically on a Monday - Thursday, the child arrives at 5:30am, by which time I have prepared the bottle of formula milk, sterilising and fitting the age appropriate teat. Throughout the morning I have a range of responsibilities, including changing nappies, dressing, bathing and feeding. At a younger age whilst she was weaning, her breakfasts would include porridge with fruit or weetabix mixed with formula milk, however, now that she is older she likes to feed herself finger foods such as toast and muffins. She is currently weaning off of her formula to full fat cows milk. During meal times I will supervise her in her highchair consistently.

On a Friday when I care for her for a longer period of time, we take part in various activities to support her development such as visiting nature reserves. Thus allowing her to broaden her skills with regards to her new ability to walk. I like to take her out on soft grounds and support her with her walking by holding her hands or placing her near objects that she can pull herself up on to and sidestep around the object. I endeavour to maintain a child-friendly environment with engaging activities and continuous access to the outdoors.

Nanny Role: September 2018 – June 2020
Age of child at start date: 6 months - age of child presently: 2 years

The family I nanny for currently work at the weekends so I have sole charge of the child, who is now 2. My job role includes but is not limited to, preparing her food, bathing and dressing her, and numerous different fun activities each day. A typical day would include activities such as visiting soft play centres, going to parks and socialising with other nannies and their children. I would then take her back home to prepare her a healthy lunch. All of the meals I prepare are chopped accordingly to the regulations and guidelines. The child was already baby led weaned however I have experience in all types of feeding and will follow the families preferences. We would play games appropriate for her age and needs. I frequently adapt the activities I have planned, if she is showing more enthusiasm in another activity I will combine the two together to both develop her learning and ensure her interests are included. I also have a responsibility of putting the child down for a nap time. When she is napping I have a baby monitor on, which means I am alert if anything were to change in her behaviour or if she needed me for comfort. I also go into her room and check on how well she is sleeping at regular intervals. Whilst she is asleep my role is to tidy up where we have played, wash and clean the kitchen where the meals have been prepared and set up the activities ready for the afternoon.

Bright Horizons Family Solutions: February 2017 – June 2020
Third in Charge
I began as a Nursery Nurse caring for children aged 3 months to 5 years. I was responsible for providing a safe environment in which to play and learn. Additionally, I helped children develop basic behavioural and social skills.

Within 9 months I was promoted to a Room Leader. As a childcare practitioner, I had responsibility for the day-to-day running of my room; I maintained a high-quality, stimulating learning environment. My role encompassed supervising three members of staff and delegating responsibilities for specific tasks accordingly.

In 2019 I stepped up to ‘Third in Charge’ which is a position within the management team. I adapted my role to be able to assist the nursery manager and the deputy manager in providing professional leadership and management of the nursery. My key responsibilities are to ensure that equal access and opportunity is offered to all staff, parents and children. My role includes dealing with correspondence, verbal and written, and handling queries or complaints. As part of my role in management I organise and attend both manager and parent meetings. I also deal with the creation of reports, the filing and documenting of confidential paperwork, stock taking, and some financial aspects e.g. taking payments and credit control.

Kiddi Caru: July 2014 - February 2017
Nursery Assistant
I started working at Kiddi Caru day nurseries during my spare time whilst I was completing my apprenticeship. As part of my role, I provided a high standard of Physical, Emotional, Social, and Intellectual care for the children. I supported other staff in the setting, suggesting suitable activities for the individual needs of the children. I built and maintained strong partnerships working with parents to ensure that children’s specific needs were being met.

Church Langley Pre-School and Primary School: September 2013 - February 2017
Learning Support Assistant
I worked at Church Langley Pre-School as a Level 2 Apprentice in Early Years Educating. I continued my training in the Early Years sector as a Level 3 Apprentice at Church Langley Primary school. I progressed from looking after children within the main stream school to caring for children with additional educational needs.
In April 2016 I was promoted to a Learning Support Assistant; as part of my job role I aided teachers in their daily tasks and assisted in organising daily planning of the children’s lessons. I worked as part of a team in order to provide a safe and stimulating environment in which the children could play, learn and develop.
