I have a maternity nurse qualification and 16 years of childcare experience looking after children from birth up to 14 years of age including twins in a variety of positions. I have extensive experience with weaning, managing food intolerances and allergies, coping with fussy eaters and advising on sleeping issues and potty training.
I enjoy taking care of babies, big fan of twins and nanny shares. I like working in clean and tidy residences, happy to have around even-tempered pets and to undertake the typical nursery duties to support a busy working family.
As a childcarer, my aim is to provide an environment that is safe, caring, conducive to learning and with endless opportunities to just have fun. I encourage a positive behaviour management approach and I am patient and deal with any situation in a calm manner.
References from my former employers:
" [She] is a fantastic nanny and I really cannot fault her: she takes her job seriously, she is sensible, caring, fun, energetic, and proactive. She cooks healthy, home-cooked meals for the children and places an importance on good manners and discipline, particularly at meals times, and always undertaken in a fair and caring manner. [My daughter] adores her, and has thrived under her care.
[She] is very reliable, and has not taken any sick days since she has been working for us. she has a happy, flexible, 'can do' attitude, and has always been happy to stay a little late on the few occasions that I have been stuck at work, or to start early when required.
We are very sad to be saying goodbye to [her] and the only reason that we are doing so is because I am expecting another baby. [She] has been brilliant nanny and we will all miss her hugely. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone seeking to employ her."
" [She] is an extremely professional and highly competent nanny. She is kind, trustworthy and has always been punctual. She evidently adores children and strives to create a caring and stimulating environment for them. She took no time at all to discover an area of London that was new to her and has taken the boys to countless playgrounds, parks, libraries, children's groups etc. in the local area.
We have all been impressed with [her] cooking skills! She helped wean the boys onto solid food as this was just being introduced when she started working with us in June of last year. She creates a variety of imaginative, healthy and tasty meals and has helped us out a great deal by freezing small portions of food for the boys, not only for her to give them when she is working, but also providing extra for us to give to the boys over the weekends.
We will all be very sad to say goodbye to [her] in July. She helped to make the transition back to work after having a baby very smooth and has never left us with any cause for concern. Indeed, she is everything any parent could ever wish for in a nanny. "
" [She] is extremely hard working and a very experienced nanny, who has built a very special and loving bond between the children. She has carried out all her duties above and beyond our expectations, including providing a safe and stimulating environment for the children. She has additionally encouraged development skills at a vital stage in their growth such as walking, feeding and playing. She has created a sense of fun for our son and he undoubtedly feels very happy and secure in her company. Her experience has also given her the ability to offer some parental guidance when needed, which is gratefully appreciated!
We are extremely sad that the current arrangement can’t be extended for any longer and will miss [her] enormously, as I am sure our son will too."
"She has a friendly, caring nature and is lots of fun. She is punctual, reliable and trustworthy. I always feel relaxed leaving my kids in her supervision as I have the highest confidence in her judgement and maturity.
If we sill needed a full time nanny, we would have definitely employed [her].
I believe that she is competent and experienced enough to fit in any child care capacity and would highly recommend her to look after your children. We will continue to use [her] as our babysitter whenever she is available in the evenings and over weekends."

Lenka has taken care of my 2 children on weekends since they were 8 months and 2.5 years old. She is an amazing nanny - she fit into our household very quickly and easily and my children look forward to her arrival. She walks a wonderful balance between playing with them, educating them, and making sure they behave and develop. She is very tidy (think Marie Kondo!) and organized and proactively goes out of her way to find interesting and new ways to entertain the children in educational ways. Because of her long experience with children, she has been able to advise me on many occasions on how to handle one issue or another with regards to the children. She is comfortable with sole charge and with shared care. I would highly recommend Lenka to any family looking for a dedicated, experienced, caring, and fun nanny.
Lenka has been a wonderful nanny to our twins since July 2016 when they were 15-months old. She is brilliantly playful with the children, supporting all areas of their development and encouraging positive behaviour through clear communication and consistency. She's extremely professional, reliable, kind and trustworthy and I have never had any concerns about the children in her care. We had a third baby recently and Lenka was proactive in helping the twins to get ready for this big event in their little lives - I believe this contributed significantly to the fact that they have nothing but adoration for their new sibling. She cooks nutritious meals, takes care of the children's laundry, the nursery and playroom and generally leaves the house tidier than she found it. We will all miss Lenka immensely when she leaves us in February and thoroughly recommend her to other families.
