Hello I'm Chelsey I'm 32 years old I have been working with children for 15 years and I've had lots of experience in both nurseries and nannying and also with having my own child I adore my job and I get on great with children and I'm very adaptable to different routines and I pick them up very quickly.
I'm very good at time keeping, always making sure if children need to be at school/clubs that they are there on time and also collected on time, making sure I also arrive on time for work.
I have a lot of experience with new born babies and under 12 months, but also older children and teenagers and I love being around them creating a wonderful safe environment for them to grow and develop.
I'm very good at building up good relationships with parents and the children and the children/ parents feel safe and happy being left with me and I also offer updates during the day in case you are wondering what your child is upto during the day feel free to call me whenever and as many times as you wish.
I also always make a small journal for each child I nanny for which contains what they have been doing that day, what they have eaten, if there's anything from school etc and how they are developing etc which in my experience parents have found very helpful and enjoy reading it in the evenings rather than be showered with information at handover at the end of the day.
I'm very creative and love encouraging the children to get messy and really enjoy themselves with body painting, making things, cooking, trips to the park to jump in muddy puddles or helping them on a bike or scooter whatever the weather.
Parents feel they can trust me and feel at ease leaving their children with me when they are at work which I think is the most important thing.
I am a very tidy person and always make sure the house is tidy and clean on the parents return and I have a great respect for the houses I have worked in.
I have worked in 5 different nurseries in the local area and learnt so much, my biggest role was baby room supervisor for 3 years I had huge responsibility in that role and also covered in the nursery office from time to time, also having added responsibility of locking up and opening the nursery and showing potential parents around the nursery.
At the nursery I worked with ages 3 months - 5 years so gained a huge range of skills and also dealt with a range of situations and I feel I really developed as a person professionally from this. Whilst I was baby room supervisor my nursery recieved a outstanding from Ofsted which I was very proud of.
My longest nanny postion was with a family who I've been with since February 2012 and ended August 2019 for twins aged 10 ( now ) and a girl aged 13 (now ) My duties over the years have included arranging play dates, school
Runs, homework assistance, a huge range or creative/messy activities, potty training, behaviour management, building up a trustworthy relationship with their parents and immediate family, babysitting evenings, overnights and weekends, arranging school holiday activities to keep the children amused and engaged and many many more.
Other duties included housework, ironing, feeding their animals whilst they were away and house sitting for them.
I have nannied for many other families since 2012, since I decided to take a step into nanny, children have ranged from newborn to 13 years and duties have included many of the ones mentioned above, school and club runs, activities, arranging fun day trips in the holidays, husband range or creative, messy and relevant theme activities, cooking healthy meals, housework, ironing, helping with homework and many more.
I have a huge babysitting background as well for many families from overnights to weekends to evenings and daytimes and from experience working with children I understand happy parents make a happy child I'm also very good at keeping to the routines you have both day and night so the children feel comfortable.
I have experience of helping and running some children parties, helping out and providing entertainment and games for the children.
I have a clean driving license and a large car which I use for work.
