Ria worked for my family over a long period of time as a Nanny who specialises in additional needs and medical issues which is what we were searching for. She offered amazing care as well as exceptional teaching. She planned out each and every day full of activities based on the topic of the month, What they are struggling with or learning at school, she did full topics such as space and turned our front room into a black hole full of amazing space displays, making moon rocks and rocket ships and linking it to every learning area, she made maths fun! She catered for cooking as well as meeting our sons individual medical needs which required constant round the clock care. Even having our eldest say we can’t cook like Ria!! Our children truly love her still to this day and see her as one of the family still to this day asking for her! If she hadn’t of moved I’m sure she would of been a long standing member of our family until our children reached teenage years. She offered outstanding care and showed real passion for our family going above and beyond to ensure our needs were met. You have a lot of nannies that can do the basic necessities but she focused on development, happiness and laughter! She took them on regular trips for outside learning, created so many interesting lesson plans. We ended up with worm bins, compost projects, giant snail enclosures, rocket ships, mud painting, scavenger hunting and so much more! We had cameras on constant in our home as we had previous issues before with a nanny and watching Ria every day with our children restored our faith in Nannies. They truly love her and hung on every word she said. If they asked to do something or wanted to learn or play she never turned them down. Whether they wanted to make mud pies, fresh bread or play dough spaghetti, or catch caterpillars she always gave them all her attention and abilities as a teacher.
We hired Ria as she had exceptional experience and references in special needs and she did not fall short. She provided home learning bags for us to continue what she started. She brought her own resources for learning and turned our house into an amazing classroom.
I couldn’t believe the turn around in our boys. She took them from children who were unwilling to listen to a nanny or participate in any learning who would scream when we left them with our previous nanny, to children who were curious about everything and couldn’t wait for us to leave and would cry when Ria would go!. She took them on regular trips to Farmers markets to get food for meals, farms to do fruit picking and learn about animals and food, swimming, bear hunts. she taught brain brain breaks and baby yoga! She did sensory activities daily always a different one and full of fun and excitement.
I’ve never made a review before as our previous nanny before her was not made for the field, however Ria truly changed our children’s lives and ours for the better. We’re searching for a new nanny now and we have thus far been disappointed because none simply match up! The levels of independence and love for learning she encouraged in our children will stick with us for life. One of our youngest with additional needs struggled badly with potty training, sensory issues and behaviour problems and within two months he was using the toilet fully, helping g dress himself and hadn’t had a melt down since the first week of her joining us. Most nannies discipline hard but Ria got down to their level, took their hands in hers, did breathing techniques and listened to them and their feelings and talked through it. She taught us so much that we could never repay so that’s what we’re doing with this review!
Ria you truly have shaped our lives and I wish you the best in your new home. We know the next family you work with will be as blessed as we are for finding you.
