Hello everyone :)
I’m currently very lucky to be working for three absolutely amazing different families and I’m no longer look for work at this current time.
Thank you for taking the time to view my profile.
My name is Danielle Evans and I am 33 years old. I am a professional nanny and from September 2019 I will be working for my current family on a Monday, Tuesday, half a day Wednesday and on a Friday. I am looking for a part time position with another family that would be happy to do a nanny share in Orpington.
I grew up in Chingford and four years ago, me and my partner moved to Dartford to get a Mortgage. I have my own car and I am happy to travel for work.
I have worked in childcare for 13 years, this has been my passion since I left school. After I finished school, I then went on to college and got my level 3 in childcare.
I am a very warm, caring and reliable person. I have always been very passionate about my career and love setting up stimulating activities to help children develop and grow, especially when it involves outdoor play.
I am a very energetic person, I love getting creative, singing nursery rhymes and doing lots of dancing.
My hobbies include cinema, swimming and I love spending time with my friends and family.
Over the last 8 years I have also done baby sitting for a number of parents. They were all very pleased with my knowledge and skills and are very happy to give me references.
I have been Ofsted registered since January 2017, this means I can accept Childcare vouchers.
I have worked in nurseries for over 11 years and in January 2017 I took on a new role and then became a Nanny for two lovely families and I have loved being a nanny ever since.
BUSY BEES DAY NURSERY
December 2004- April 2010
I worked as a Nursery Nurse and gained experience working with children aged 2-3 years old at Busy Bees Chingford.
April 2010- July 2016
In April 2010 I got promoted to a Room Manager to look after children under 18 months in the baby room. My responsibilities included learning about babies' milk times, sleep times and learning all about the weaning guide. I managed two other girls in the room to make sure all policies, planning and procedures were all up to date. During my time at Busy Bees I have gained great knowledge and understanding of the 'Early Years Foundation Stage' and 'The Characteristics of Effective Learning.'
While working with this age group, I was able to gain experience working with a child with Down syndrome. To support this child, I attended 'Inclusion in the Early Years' training. I also attended Speech and Language Therapy meetings to discuss ideas and activities to further the child's development and I was able to learn Makaton signs to do with the child.
DIMPLES DAY NURSERY
July 2016- October 2016
I joined Dimples after my house move from Chingford to Dartford. I managed 3 other girls and looked after a 1-2 years old room. I worked with the EYFS framework by observing children and planning activities around their interest.
I left Dimples Day Nursery to gain experience in becoming a full time Nanny.
BUSY BEES DAY NURSERY
October 2016- February 2017
In October 2016, I went back to Busy Bees in Chingford as a relief member of staff. The reason for this was because my Nanny job role was not going to be starting an till January 2017. While being back at Busy Bees, I worked with the all different aged groups and even got to gain experience working with the preschool children. Going back to Busy Bees also meant I was able to learn how to use the new 'I connect' smart tablet. All the children's information and observations were put on to this device.
NANNY SHARE ROLE
March 2017- December 2017
In January 2017, I took on a new role to become a part time Nanny and looked after one lovely little girl named Summer. In March 2017, I also took on a cute little boy named Oliver. The children I looked after were 1 years of age. Oliver lived near me in Dartford, I picked him up in the mornings and took him over to Swanley, where Summer and her family lived. This happened only on a Monday and Tuesday. On a Wednesday to Thursday I only had Oliver and on a Friday I only had Summer.
This had honestly been such a good experience for me and I absolutely loved this role with all my heart.
When I had both Children, I would set up Summer's house with toys and activities on different mats to stimulate them throughout the day. I would set up a cosy corner for the books, a small world mat, so i could encourage them to help me build a track and cars or a track with trains. They would also have puzzles and electronic toys set out on the day. In the garden they had a sand tray with tools and moulds. They really enjoyed going in Summer's play house, I always have bikes, bubbles, chalking and balls set up in the garden. In the Summer we always did different water play activities. We always enjoyed doing musical movement together, inside and outside. We love to do messy play for example, they used sticking items and I encouraged them to use paint brushes to spread the child safe glue and to stick the items on to the kites. Once the kites were dry, I took them out to fly the kites on a windy day.
All three of us together, would really enjoy attending stay and play sessions, going to the park and we would absolutely love going to different music groups.
The days when I only had one child, we also attended music groups, stay and play sessions, toddler time and enjoyed exploring parks and soft plays in all the different areas.
Looking after Summer and Oliver over that year, I feel I really watched them develop and grow. I was able to teach them baby signing, counting, they were able to learn how to socialise and share with one another and I helped them progress with their speech and language development.
Working for Busy Bees for such a long time, helped me to start my very own development folders for Summer and Oliver. The folders include observations on their progress and development. I take photos of all the activities I carry out with them and then I link them the 'Early Years Foundation Stage' and 'Characteristics of Effective Learning.' I then write up next steps to encourage them to develop further by using their interests. The folders are loved by the parents because they can read through and look at their child's memories. The parents are then able to keep the folders, once they decide to leave me.
Sadly in December 2017, I lost Summer because she started at a nursery setting at the age of turning two.
SOLE CHARGE ROLE AND EMERGENCY CHILDCARE
January 2018- June 2018
I looked after Ollie at his house, we continued to attend playgroups, music groups, stay and play, soft play and enjoyed spending our time at the parks. During this time Oliver's family were happy to let me offer emergency childcare to other families, while looking after Oliver at the same time in their new house in Sidcup. I looked after a sweet school girl named Esperanza and a lovely school boy named Oscar during the school holidays. Esperanza's and Oscar's families were very happy with my care and still use me for the odd days in the school holidays.
NANNY SHARE ROLE
July 2018- Present
In July 2018 another lovely family found me and asked me to become their nanny. I then started to work for two families and started doing a nanny share role again. I now look after a very cute little girl named Ffion who is nearly two years old and Oliver who is now three years old. I look after Ffion and Oliver at Ffion's house in Orpington on a Monday and a Friday. On a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, I look after only Oliver at his home in Sidcup.
Together we enjoy attending play groups, soft play, Boppin tots, Mini Montessori, Library and stay and play sessions. I also take them to gymnastics and trampolining. We absolutely love being outdoors, we go to the park, we visit the forest to find bugs and muddy puddles to jump in. We have been on trips to the farm and they loved looking, feeding and talking about all the animals.
On a Monday we attend 'The Great Outdoors' in Swanley park and when it is Summer time we have the best time, having fun in the splash parks and building sand castles in the sand pit.
When we are at home, I enjoy doing lots of reading, cooking (cakes, biscuit, sandwiches and pizzas) and creative activities with the children.
At the moment I have been working on Ffion's numbers, colours and shapes with her and Oliver has been practising his writing, cutting and trampolining skills with me.
In September 2019, I am very upset to say that Oliver will be leaving me to go to school and to a childminder. I will miss Oliver very much but I have been one very lucky nanny to watch him grow from a baby into a big boy, who is now ready for school.
I will still continue to have Ffion on a Monday, Tuesday, half a day Wednesday and on a Friday.
If you are looking for a Nanny just like me, please get in touch with me and we can discuss all the details in full. Both families absolutely love everything that I do with the children and for them. Both sets of families are very happy to give me give me references and I also have reviews by my families on this site.
Thank you for very much for taking the time to read my profile and if I'm not the Nanny for you, I would like to wish you good luck in your search.

Below are the latest reviews for Danielle. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk.

Danielle is absolutely an excellent babysitter/nanny, I could not imagine a better one. She has been looking after my son for the last year during school breaks, and Oscar loves her and always looks forward to spend time with her. She is providing a perfect child care, she is making sure that every day is a fun day full of different type of activities. I highly recommend her.
Danielle (or Dan Dan as she is affectionately known by our daughter) has been our nanny for nearly a year. We are delighted with how she has cared for our now nearly 2 year old daughter and supported her development.
It never ceases to amaze me the things Ffion learns with Danielle - from counting and singing to caring and sharing with Ollie, whose family we currently nanny share with, although this will sadly be coming to an end in September. Danielle has also helped Ffion build her confidence in new situations and with new people.
It is wonderful to see Ffion blossom with Danielle, but most importantly is how happy she is with Danielle. Ffion can barely contain her excitement when she sees Dan Dan arrive and we return home to a very content little girl. Danielle clearly cares a lot for Ollie and Ffion, which means we can go to work without any concerns and felling a little less guilty!
Danielle keeps a daily diary for us so we know what Ffion has been up to each day - which is always varied - as well as a development folder. This is something Danielle chooses to do as part of her very professional service and demonstrates her absolute dedication to her job and the children.
I’d be very happy to answer any other questions from anyone considering using Danielle for their Nanny and sincerely hope we can find another family to share her with - as well as find a new friend for Ffion!
Danielle's first visit to our home was a sign of things to come. Our children took to her immediately and she was very open, friendly, and willing to go over and above what was required. She gave us so much peace of mind entrusting our daughter to her care and after just a week with Danielle, our daughter was in tears when she had to go back to school. Danielle was always on time and made sure the days were packed with fun filled activities and lots of treats at no extra cost. In a nutshell, we will definitely be calling on Danielle for help again and our daughter is already counting down to when she'll see her again!
Danielle was great right from the start, the kids loved her and look forward to her coming over. Highly recommend her and you won’t regret your decision!
Danielle has been looking after our son for 7 months now and we couldn't be happier with her. She is a very positive, happy person, always with a smile on her face, plenty of energy and lots of creativity. She puts a huge effort into making sure that our son has a fun day every day by taking him to the park, playgroups or softplay centers. Even when they play around the house they sing and dance all day and we come home to a happy, content child.
She is a true professional who we fully trust to know what to do in any situation, reliable and caring. Our son eats and naps better with her than he does with us and he really loves her.
We couldn't recommend her more. She is the absolute perfect nanny!
