About Me

I am a calm, confident and compassionate nanny with a career in childcare spanning 25 years. I CURRENTLY WORK FULL TIME AS A NANNY WITH A 2 YEAR OLD; PROXY PARENTING FOR SEVERAL DAYS AT A TIME. I AM THEREFORE ONLY AVAILABLE FOR OCCASIONAL BABYSITTING.

This means I may have ad-hoc days/weekends where I can be available to care for your child/children at your home or at an event; for example - looking after your little ones at your home while you attend an event, or entertaining them at the event if you take them with you, or perhaps offering a listening service at a hotel, so you can enjoy the facilities while your children sleep under my watchful eye.

The varying roles I have had allow me to pull on many different experiences, to provide a bespoke nannying service so please do get in touch with your requirements.

I am nurturing, enthusiastic and have a positive and encouraging manner. From my roles with children with additional needs, I have honed my patience, resourcefulness and ability to adapt. I believe that good manners, respect and learning to be responsible are core foundations for building successful adult lives; and can be achieved through routines and structured activities, which create fun and varied learning environments.

Always influenced by the child’s enjoyment, interests and inquisitive mind, I naturally include early years learning into our time together and follow spontaneous learning opportunities as they occur.

My Experience

I qualified as a Nanny in 1998 and have worked in a variety of childcare settings since. These include family homes, a pre school, a junior school and my own home as an ofsted registered childminder.
In my early career, I was a nanny share with three children under the age of 2 years. While childminding I cared for children between 1-10 years, raised two of my own and then worked as a teaching assistant for six years, covering ages 7-11 years.
Three of those six years I worked with a child with special needs and used Makaton sign language as the main form of communication.

In August 2016, I returned to Nannying to assist an injured mother to continue caring for her 2year old in Knaresborough. In December 2016 I joined a new family of four children, which soon became five, as a full time sole charge nanny/housekeeper/house manager/proxy parent in Easingwold.
Their youngest child started school in September 2021 so I moved on that December.

January 2022 to January 2023 I worked with many different families; to support those with multiple children after birth of new baby, to assist families visiting the UK on holiday or caring for babies/children on site while their parents attend weddings; alongside returning to my Knaresborough family to care for their newborn and now 7year old.

My Qualifications

I have an NNEB diploma in nursery nursing. I have consistently held first aid certification my whole adult life, with my most recent training in paediatric first aid.
I am fully insured and DBS checked (which is also on the update service and is re checked annually)

I can assist with light housekeeping tasks in addition to childcare, however the children are always my priority.

My Availability

Due to the proxy parenting requirements of my current role it’s best to contact me to discuss availability.
