About Me

Hi, my name is Jenny. I have worked in childcare for over 15 years, including nursery work, nannying, babysitting. I have experience with new borns, children with special needs, and additional/medical needs. I am available for nannying and babysitting.

My Experience

Private Nanny - Special needs experience
I nannied for a lovely family 3 days a week between August 2020 - November 2021 (when I was unfortunately made redundant)
I looked after the little girl in the family’s home. I provided care that contributed to a safe, caring, nurturing, and stimulating environment. We enjoyed little outings to the park and attended toddler/music groups.
I happily helped with household tasks: cleaning, cooking, housekeeping, laundry and ensuring the play area and bedroom was neat and tidy.

Nursery Practitioner
Brue Farm Day Nursery - Castle Cary
October 2012 to August 2019
I was part of a large team in a purpose built, integrated children’s nursery. Brue Farm Day Nursery is an OFSTED outstanding Nursery. The nursery provides quality country care in a rural environment which I was very proud to be a part of. I was able to adapt myself to the needs of the nursery, staff, children and their parents/carers and enjoyed the change of pace throughout the day to where I was needed.
An imperative part of my role was liaising with parents on a daily basis which I think has really helped to develop my ‘skills people skills’ and become a good listener. I also hosted individual developmental reviews when required. Part of my duties were to observe, assess and record children's development within the guidance of the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework and from there develop ways to extend individual children’s learning and development. It was easy to me to maintain regular documentation for each of the children in my care.
I was responsible for ensuring that the premises were in a clean, tidy and safe condition at all times, having regard for Health and Safety regulations.
My role required for me to be involved in providing guidance and training for new colleagues or students.
I have attended an OFSTED workshop and a Mathematics/Outdoor workshop. I am also trained in STC, First Aid and children’s yoga.

Key skills in this role:
Caring, playing and supporting children as they develop and grow.
Observing children as they interacted in activities.
Following and supporting children's individual routines and needs.
Assessing what is observed and deciding ways to strengthen an individual child’s learning and development.
Planning and implementing stimulating activities for children to engage in.
Maintaining toys and play equipment, this was supported by daily cleaning routines as well as monthly cleaning of the children's toys.
Attending staff team meetings.
Updating development records.
Liaising with parents/carers daily as well as hosting developmental reviews with them when required/termly parents evening.
