*** PLEASE NOTE I AM NOT LOOKING FOR AN AFTER-SCHOOL ROLE ***
I have 14 years experience of working with children aged 0-10 years and find myself to be a motivated, calm, confident and above all passionate individual that aspires to be a successful Early Years child carer. I am extremely passionate about the well-being, learning and development of any child in my care and strive to be the best and give my all and more. I take my role serious and remain professional whilst being fun, silly and energetic at the same time :) I like to believe I am adaptable, have common sense and use my own initiative in my role. As your Nanny (be it ad hoc or temporary) you can expect a good sense of humour, lots of photos, playful learning activities and time outdoors!
My interest in Childcare began when I studied Child Development as one of my optional GCSE's, this led to me babysitting for family and friends. At the age of 19 I started my career full time in Early years settings where I gained experience of working with children aged 2-5 years from all walks of life. During my time in Early Years I have attended MANY types of training including Makaton, how to identify any Special Educational Needs, introducing children to early literacy and making mathematics fun however my main passion is providing learning opportunities through play based on the individual child’s interests. After 10 years in nurseries and making my way up to room leader in both settings, I decided to take the leap into Nannying as I wanted to focus fully on the children and not paperwork. So far in my Nanny experience I have taken on part time positions for 4 families, 1 full time & ad hoc work with a handful of regular families with ages ranging from new born to 10years.
If I have left anything out, feel free to ask away :)

Casey was always full of ideas on how to make time with our girls fun. They warmed to her instantly and she has a real skill of meeting children on their level.
Casey is most definitely a self-starter who is able to craft a daily itinerary that's varied with a large focus on play and getting outside.
Not only that, but Casey was really helpful in helping with my overflowing laundry basket; putting a wash on a folding clothes while my smallest baby napped.
Casey is warm, honest and ambitious, and clearly cares so much about the profession she's in.
As soon as we met Casey we knew she was right for our family. My nearly 2 year old and nearly 1 year old warmed to her instantly! While Casey was with us (we moved too far away!) Thole kids loved going to different playgrounds , singing songs playing games and Arts and Crafts with her. She has definitely been missed!
Casey is a lovely Nanny, our 2 year old daughter took to her straight away, it was like they’d known each other for ages! Casey was great at entertaining our daughter and making sure she was fed and changed regularly. Would definitely use Nanny Casey again :-) xx

Thank you Suzanne, look forward to seeing you guys again 😊
We were looking for someone who could help out with babysitting on an ad hoc basis for a long time but just couldn't find anyone we felt 100% comfortable with until we saw Casey's profile. She was very professional and we really connected from the first contact and zoom call. She looked after our kids (4yo and 2yo) a couple of times and we are already looking at booking more sessions. She is kind, patient, imaginative, very experienced, and knowledgeable. The kids had a wonderful time and we felt safe and comfortable leaving them in Casey's care.

Thank you Kasia ☺️ x
Casey started working with us when our son was 8 months old and since then she has really has become part of our family. She is extremely imaginative, ensuring Milo always has fun things to do or see. She talks or sings to him all the time, which has noticeably helped his vocabulary and development, and the two of them seem to be the best of friends, with other mums and nannies actually commenting on the special bond they have formed. She really goes above and beyond, including keeping a scrap book of all of Milo’s adventures, and my husband and I repeatedly comment on how lucky we all are to have found her!
