About Me

I am an OFSTED registered nanny and Level 3 qualified Early Years Educator. I have been working with children all my life. I started babysitting when I was a university student, then went on to teach at a German secondary grammar school and then returned to early years child care 6 years ago. I worked at a lovely childminding setting in Manchester's leafy Didsbury suburb (OFSTED-rating: 'Outstanding') for 1.5 years. Then I moved to Abingdon and started working at a Nursery here. The next stage in my carrier was working in Oxford in an 'Outstanding' nursery for two years as an early years practitioner.
However, I've realized I missed the coziness of a small setting or family childcare. Therefore, becoming a nanny at a loving family in (or near) Oxford is a wonderful prospect.

I love children and I love what I do. I have specialised in working with children aged 3-24 months. I provide professional childcare to OFSTED standards. I have a wide-ranging experience regarding the needs of the little ones – from development to health and hygiene.

Several years’ work in childcare has given me a thorough understanding of children’s needs – and the many ways they communicate those needs. I know their non-verbal communication, their complex relationship patterns and the unique nature of their fledgling intellect.

As a creative, caring and reliable individual with a passion for childcare, I’m confident that I would earn the trust of your baby and your family day in, day out.

I am looking forward to meeting you and your lovely children.

We've been lucky enough to have Flora in our lives for the last year and a half. She began nannying for us when our son was 6 months old. We are constantly amazed by her boundless enthusiasm, her cheerfulness, and passion for childcare. She's proactive and creative - our son loves the projects that they do together whether its art-based, baking, or playing outside. She is also firm when she needs to be and we appreciate the safety rules she sets down. Flora is very musical and our son loves playing along on various instruments and singing with her. We can't thank her enough for all that she does - Flora, you're wonderful!
