About Me

I have always lived and worked in the Richmond-upon-Thames area but made the decision to move to beautiful West Sussex in October 2020.
I am available for evening baby-sitting and occasional ad hoc work as a nanny, including after school care, in and around the Steyning area. I have looked after children (including my own) for over 30 years in between being an artist and creative, and running a local charity for several years.
I have three grown up children and my interests and passions include animals, art and craft, nature, music and theatre. I enjoy all things related to working with children-walking, visiting interesting places as well as the parks and playgrounds, playing, chatting, learning, laughing, socialising and quiet times, reading and cooking. I believe in always being reliable, trustworthy, firm but always fair and above all, fun and kind. I drive my own car and do not drink or smoke. Cups of tea and cake are my thing!

My Experience

I have worked with children for over 30 years, from newborns to teenagers and in various capacities. Apart from bringing up my own family, I worked as a nanny, a crèche worker at the local adult college, a Learning Support and Teaching Assistant in a primary school in Kew and currently as an an invigilator for a local grammar school during exams. I also volunteered as a Welcomer at my local Cancer Support Centre for the past 4 years. Since my children left home five years ago, I have returned to nannying.
I recently had sole care of a little girl from 4mths-16mths, followed by a little boy from 22mths-21/2 yrs, until they went to nursery respectively. I currently nanny part-time for two families, one with a 3yr old little girl and a 6yr old boy and the other with a 7yr old boy and a 9yr old girl, after school care and baby-sitting.(I am only leaving them due to my re-location :(
I have my DBS check, childcare insurance and am trained in Paediatric First Aid to Ofsted standard. I also recently became a Registered Chaperone.

My charges are:
£12 per hour for daytime nannying
£10 per hour for evening babysitting

My Qualifications

I have 6 O Levels, Art A Level and Art Foundation Diploma. I have many years experience in childcare and have taken part in various training courses as a learning Support Assistant and privately to enhance my knowledge in the care and welfare of children. I hold a current certificate in Paediatric First Aid and am a Registered Chaperone.
