Hi! I’m Olivia, I’m 25 years old and I live in Clapham, London. I currently work as an Assistant Teacher at the Marmalade Cat Day Nursery on weekdays from 11.45am to 4.15pm, and am looking for nannying, babysitting or other childcare opportunities to fit in around these hours (see ‘my availability section below).
I absolutely love children and have always been passionate about working with and being around them. As a result I have a wealth of experience in a range of childcare settings including primary schools, nurseries and children’s clubs in the UK and abroad, alongside lots of experience babysitting in the home setting. I am a fun, smiley, kind, caring and patient individual who is truly passionate about and dedicated to childcare. I have a lot of energy and imagination, and my nursery experience has provided me a deep understanding of the early years and Montessori education, children’s needs, how to incorporate learning into play, the importance of routine and the huge role genuine affection and support plays in a happy child; all of which will be a driving force within my care.
I have all of the relevant training and certificates for early years childcare including a current DBS certificate and training in paediatric first aid, Covid safety, safeguarding, British values and prevent duty, food hygiene, infection and illness control and child protection. I am also more than happy to take on any additional responsibilities such as cooking and cleaning, and can do so to a high standard as I have professional experience in early years food preparation, Covid cleaning and housekeeping. Moreover, I have my own car so can be available at short notice, and am willing to be flexible with hours besides those I spend working at the nursery.
I have four years of nursery experience, a first class Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree in childhood youth and community studies and a Masters of Science (MSc), in which I achieved a Distinction. I also hold a current DBS alongside certificates in paediatric first aid, manual handling, epi-pen training, Covid safety, safeguarding, British values and prevent duty, food hygiene, infection and illness control and child protection. I have also worked in primary schools with years R, 1 and 2 and have completed the Primary Education maths and English skills tests which are required in order to train as a primary school teacher. Moreover, I have volunteered with the Brownies and participated in a voluntary expedition to Tanzania, during which time I worked in a Tanzanian primary school and helped with childcare in a local orphanage.
I have a first class degree in childhood youth and community studies which is equivalent to a level 2 qualification in childcare. I also recently achieved a Distinction in my MSc and hold the Maths and English Skills Test certificates required to teach within a primary school. As mentioned previously, I also have certificates in manual handling, paediatric first aid, food hygiene, Covid safety, safeguarding, British values and prevent duty, infection and illness control and child protection.
I am available weekdays before 11.30 and after 4.30 and some weekends - contact me for additional information!
