About Me

I am a warm, caring and experienced childcare provider with a total of 4 years’ full time experience working with babies and children as a nanny, EYFS/primary French and Art teacher, and classroom teaching assistant. I also have 7 years’ experience tutoring Modern Foreign Languages and English as a Foreign Language and have worked with young people with significant special educational needs (in particular ASD, Down’s Syndrome and Social/Emotional/Mental Health Needs).
I love working with children and have cared for babies and children aged 6 months to 11 years as an au pair, childminder and babysitter for extended periods over the last 10 years.

I have a strong interest in Steiner education methods (in particular in the central role of arts, crafts and outdoor play in child development) and in RIE childcare philosophy and my eventual goal is to qualify as a primary school teacher.

I am fluent in French and Spanish and can play the guitar, bass guitar, and piano. I love arts, crafts, and music, and work with a women’s charity in Camden, organising benefit concerts to raise money to provide therapies to women who have experienced trauma.
