About Me

Dependable, resourceful and creative is how I have been described with reference to my role as a nanny.

I'm an experienced nanny who is available for a part time employed nanny position with a family of at least 2 or more children. I currently don't drive.

Over the past 4 years, I've built long lasting relationships with the children and parents I've learned so much from and have loved working with. This year, I've been awarded the 'Childcare Certificate Of Excellence 2020' for my achievements with reliability, creativity with children and for the relationship skills I've developed with children and their parents.

My backround is in Childrens Yoga and Beauty Therapy. I taught Children's Yoga for 2yrs at 'Early Days Nursery' for the 10mth - 5yrs before becoming a nanny.

Presently, I am training to be a 'Functional Medicine Lifestyle Coach'. My goal is to combine nutrition with gut health and mindfulness for the benefit of children and families.

I am PVG certified and I have undergone several courses in child saftey including:
'Children's First Aid'.
'Safe Gaurding and Protecting Children',
'In Safe Hands' and just recently taken a weekend workshop on
'Play Therapy For Kids'
A weekend 'Waldorf Introduction To Education' and completed a child a
'Children's Non Violent Communication' course

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.
