About Me

I have found a family so I’m no longer available.



Dear parents,

I am aware under the current circumstances families will be very careful of who they allow into their homes and I want you to rest assured that I am prepared to take every necessary precaution.

I’m preferably looking for a full time role:
(55 hours per week minimum).

I am a highly experienced Ofsted registered nanny with excellent references. I pride myself on working well with parents in order to provide the best possible care for their children.

I believe early education is essential, therefore I teach children through toys, singing, educational activities, play dates with their piers and reading.


All children are different and develop at their own pace therefore I adapt my teaching to match the child’s ability.

As important as learning is, it’s equally important for children to have fun. I like to strike a healthy balance between the two.

I enjoy discovering what your area has to offer in terms of activities for children and getting to know other nannies in the area who are looking after children the same age in order to organise play-dates. I believe it’s important for children to be around their piers.

I am use to sole charge as well as mothers help.

What you can expect from me as your nanny:

- I am a supportive, kind and caring nanny. I’m firm but fair. I will make them laugh and always try to communicate with them in a way they understand.

- I enjoy playing all sorts of activities with kids including sports, reading, board games, arts & crafts and education games. For older children I will make sure they do their homework and assist when possible.

- I’m happy to do light housework (provided it’s in relation to the children e.g. cleaning the kitchen after preparing their meals).

- I am very organised. For babies, I like to make a note and summarise their daily routine. In the past I have assisted with weaning and sleep training.

I have worked for wonderful families who are happy to provide references on request.

I’m happy to send you my C.V via email and I hope to hear from you soon.

My Experience

I have 6 years of experience as a nanny; with children between 0-12 years old.

14 years of experience babysitting/ ad-hoc childcare.

My Qualifications

Diploma in massage therapy, certified infant massage instructor, common core skills knowledge training and paediatric first aid certificate.

(minimum 50 hours per week).

She worked for us temporarily from July-November. We hired her because I was recovering from open heart surgery. Due to covid restrictions I was not able to pre meet Holly and show her the ropes. She came in and managed my two boys (2,4) with no problems from day 1. She took over their care from 8-6pm and kept them both very happy. At a very traumatic time for them. It was so fantastic for us as I needed to be able to concentrate on healing and the reassurance they were fine helped so much. It was a seamless transition and such a god send for us.

She did everything you would expect- took them out, prepared meals, tidied up after them, basic tidying of house (from their mess) played with them, read stories, did activities etc. She did some washing, loaded the dishwasher and unloaded it for us.

Because of our situation we needed someone who followed the covid guidelines to reduce our risk and she did this. She even stopped attending the gym for us! We felt very safe.

She always arrived on time and was very committed to her job. She gets pleasure from working with children and adored our boys. They loved her too and are already missing her. They got on with holly straight away. My son has been saying since she’s left - where’s holly? She’s my family. That says a lot really!

She communicates very well. It was a strange set up as we were all in the house and she managed this very well. She works well with parents around and individually(which can be hard to find not everyone wants to have parents hanging around.) She respects the parents opinion and follows their lead on matters (as an example discipline- we talk through conflicts and she did this without hesitation) She takes her job very seriously and again respects what you say.

I would highly recommend Holly. We were unable to keep her on as it was a temporary position but any family would be lucky to have her.

Holly has looked after my kids on a number of occasions and done a fantastic job. My two oldest children always really look forward to seeing Holly and she is reliable, experienced and enthusiastic. We highly recommend her.

Holly has a natural connection with babies and toddlers. I could see that my son (now nearly 18 months) felt completely at ease with her right from the start; they now have a really close bond and he is thriving and making impressive progress in Holly’s care. Holly immediately understood and adapted to our parenting style and is very easy to have around. She is also flexible and understanding of our sometimes unpredictable work schedules. I would highly recommend Holly to anyone who is looking for a caring and trustworthy nanny who truly loves working with children.

Holly helped us with our twins, first as a mother's help when they were newborn, then as a part-time nanny doing sole care when I started to go back to work. She is an absolutely natural with babies and children of all ages, she has a very genuine caring nature, and is completely trustworthy.

Holly started with us when our children were 5 and 9 respectively. The children have got on well with her and she has managed to juggle our busy routine. She doesn't mind dealing with the unpredictable and is always prepared to go the extra mile. We were particularly impressed with her resilience and the good-natured way she handled a fortnight here with no boiler this year which coincided with the Beast from the East!
