About Me


My name is Lena Lee. I am an experienced 39yr old childcare professional who is searching for a full/part time employed nanny position with a family of 2 or more kids. I love big families and the diversity of roles that can bring. I have over 3.5yrs experience as a nanny in ages ranging from 7mths-13yrs. From my previous references, my employers would confirm that I am a warm hearted, compassionate, competent, creative and reliable lady, who loves to engage and nurture children's growth, creativity, voice and individual personality.

My backround is rooted in Health and Wellbeing. Prior to nannying, I trained and worked as a 'Holistic Skin & Lfestyle Specialist' for 5 years. After this time, I felt I wanted to work more in the promotion of health with children so I trained as a Children's Yoga and Fitness Teacher almost 4yrs ago.
I taught Children's Yoga for 2yrs at 'Early Days Nursery' for the 10mth - 5yrs as well as running my own private classes. I really enjoyed this role, especially the nurturing side which came really naturally to me.

After 2yrs teaching and nannying, I decided I wanted to focus more on the nannying side of childcare. I am still very passionate about healthy eating, being active and generating wellbeing. For this reason, I am very happy to cook super healthy and delicious meals for your kids/famiiy. It's very important to me to spend time outdoors taking care of kids and playing with them in a very fun and caring manner. It's one of the reasons why I love nannying so much.

Along side nannying, in my spare time, I love to study functional medicine, Non Violent Communication, take dance and Tai Chi lessons and ocassionally dog sit:)

I am PVG certified and I have undergone several courses in child saftey including: 'Children's First Aid'. 'Safe Gaurding and Protecting Children' and 'In Safe Hands' and just recently taken a day long workshop on 'Play Therapy For Kids' and undergone a course in Children's Non Violent Communication

Because I am reliable and I really care about what I do my references are excellent.

Thank you for your consideration,

I look forward to hearing from you.

Warmest regards

Lena Lee :)

Lena has been nanny for our 6 year old son for 10 months. We are very grateful that we found her. She is 100% reliable, she has a holistic approach to childcare which is very much in tune with our own values.
She has a great sense of gauging what will work for the child on that particular day. This meant she could form a close bond with our son and has been an amazing help to our family.
The meals she has prepared for us have been tasty and nutritious which is just what you need after a long day at work.
I can't recommend her enough.

Lena has been our nanny for about 4 months until she sadly needed to change her days, which we couldn’t do. She is so wonderful with our baby and very creative. I always know he’s having fun and is completely safe with her. Lena is very reliable and has never been late (in fact she’s usually early!). She was really responsive to our way of doing things and is also a great cook. We are really going to miss her!

We worked with Lena for a week over the New Year period. She was a pleasure to work with - punctual, communicative and caring. She helped look after our 20 month old daughter on multiple evenings; we felt comfortable leaving her with Lena, and she was able to re-settle her back to sleep when needed. She kept us updated throughout the evening, which was appreciated. We wouldn’t hesitate to book her again.
