Highly skilled Nanny OFSTED registered, Full spectrum Certified POSTNATAL DOULA with experience of working with Newborns, multiples and children of all ages.
I have over 25 years of experience in childcare.
I am a trustworthy, reliable, punctual, happy, sociable and kind hearted person.
I enjoy singing, silly dancing and have a wacky sense of humour!
I prefer a part time position as a Nanny and enjoy working with newborns up to one and a half as a nanny, this then allows me to work with many Postnatal families in need of care as well as this is my main role as a Health Care Professional.
I am passionate about learning and enjoy working for people from all walks of life. I love to embrace all cultural traditions and enjoy learning different languages and feel we can learn a lot from one another.
I come from a large family myself and I have a natural passion and am more than happy to cater to the individual needs of the child and family that I care for.
I support and prefer holistic methods and love the Montessori approach to learning and often implement it in my care with the children hoping to transition into a nursery based setting (if their parents also prefer this approach) of course!.
My main aim is for the children in my care to reach their full potential so they can achieve important milestones towards their development in all aspects.
I particularly enjoy helping and assisting new mum’s throughout their Postnatal period and take care of all post natal care needs, which can range from breast/bottle feeding, winding positions, changing, bathing, teaching basic massage techniques, to early teething, weaning and anything else required by the mother to make life easier for her.
This can range from all types of maternity care and some overnight care to help you recover, particularly during those early few weeks when it is a overwhelming experience especially for new parents.
I have been very successful helping parents with newborns to establish the best start for their little ones.
I am a mature and experienced mum to five children (grown up children!!) 4 daughters and a son!
I have recently become a very proud grandmother too.
As said above, with my children I’ve had first hand experience of preterm babies in NICU and dealt with lots of issues from establishing breastfeeding through to dealing with colic and reflux.
I love the experience of being a mother and have thoroughly enjoyed helping my own children develop from their early years to adulthood.
I strive to develop the potential of each child whether academic, artistic or sporting.
My recent work has encouraged me to develop stimulating and sensory play for babies and age appropriate activities for toddlers too.

Zarina has been my daughter's nanny for a year now. When we first met her it was clear that she was the best person we could ask for: amazing experience both, professionaly and personaly (she is a mum of 5 herself!).
My daughter was not used to stay with other people as we are from abroad and with all the Pandemic she did not socialised much, but she has a connection with Zarina since the very first moment - I could not believe how happy she was without us around her.
She also knows all the parks and playgroups so they will be at a different one every day, making her routine very dinamic.
A lovely, reliable and responsible person to take care of your kids without a doubt!
