I'm Joss i am caring, patient and empathetic as well as understanding when it comes to looking after children from birth to teens. I have vast knowledge on child attachments, and how to build positive child/adult bonds from birth to teens. I am a big believer in creating safe spaces for children.
I have 13 plus years experience working with children and families as a Nursery Teacher, Manny, Support worker, (working with families with severe needs) and working with children who have mental health issues due to being in vulnerable environments.
I have vast experience with babies, toddler's and teens, i'm also qualified and have a uptodate DBS, uptodate safeguarding and a first aid certificate.
I have a sensitive and heartfelt approach towards working with children ( I'm literally as soft as wool. I'm big on expression and emotion. And that's something I advocate for men and children especially. I like to help children learn their emotions and how to deal with them. I call them ( big emotions). I also have two younger brothers, which have had a leading impact on my career choice and an understanding of children.
Over the last 13 years I have gained knowledge and a wide range of experiences as an Early Years Practitioner and a Nanny/Manny, from working in different settings as a Nursery Manager, Room Leader and an Early Years Practitioner. I have been a Nanny/ Manny alongside doing my other roles for a number of different families full time and part time.
I am now a full time Nanny/ Manny and work for a number of different families at any given time with Children as young as 3 weeks old. Offering a high standard, child lead and heartfelt level of childcare. Helping families find balance and nurturing these little minds that are the next generation.
I have measureless knowledge on child attachments, weaning, sleep routines, potty training and how to build positive child and adult relationships.
I also travel with families, and have worked in numerous countries as a travel Manny. Such as Saudia Arabia, Antigua, Switzerland plus more. I love learning new cultures, and being in new environments with children. Exploring, swimming, and adapting.
Being a male childcare specialist is amazing. I may be the last man standing lol. But I wouldn’t change it for the world. Its moulded me into a heart-warming kind and caring individual.
This is more than just work or childcare. I genuinely love to help families find balance as well as to promote positive change and have fun at the same time.
I have a blog based around children and parenting, just to show how passionate I am about child development and positive parenting. And on The 21st of September 2019 I won a “National Diversity Award” for being a positive role model. Which was aired on ITV London. I have also been featured on BBC for my work, ITV, and interviewed on various podcasts and blogs around childcare, mental health and how i put love into what i do ( a mini documentary ) as well as the Hackney Gazette, Sun News Paper, Time Out Radio and various radio stations and social media platforms.
I am committed to doing the best for the families and children that I work alongside, with sole focus on the child’s wellbeing and personal and social development. I constantly keep in mind that what I do can have a long-term or a short-term effect on the children in my care, I always work within legislation to safeguard myself and them as well staying grounded and child focused at all times when working.
Not sure If it’s a hobby, but I am a bit of a chef, and love to read, write, poetry and also go for walks and sight see as well as attending art shows or adventuring around the worlds numerous museums and countries. I also have a season ticket for Arsenal football club with my family ( heart breaking I know )

For as long as I’ve known this man he has always had a caring and loving nature. He has always been good with children of all ages and he is the definition of doing something that you truly love. Anything this man does is from the heart, he will love and protect your children as if they are his own.
