Hi, my name is Sharon and I’m a 42 year old qualified primary school teacher who now works mainly as a nanny and babysitter in which I have several years experience. I love working with children as I’m a naturally friendly, outgoing and creative individual who can easily get down to a child’s level and connect with them whether it be nurturing and caring for them in a home environment or helping them learn and grow in an academic environment.
My teaching experience has enabled me with the skills and initiative to get on with tasks set as well as come up with imaginative activities and games to occupy children. I also have a keen interest in art and completed a BTEC diploma which has further enabled me with useful skills when entertaining children. I am currently working for 2 nanny agencies for day to day childcare as well as some daily supply teacher cover when needed. I have also worked for several private babysitting families over the years.
I have a primary school PGCE which I gained in 2004 and up to date I have taught children from 3 years to 11 in several different schools both short and long term. In particular, I have a lot of nursery age/ early years experience where for example I have led a 40 place nursery and I have extensive SEN experience for the primary age group. I have also been a nanny/ babysitter for a 2 and 3 .5 year old most recently as well as a cover nanny for 2 different agencies since 2009 where I have cared for newborn children as well as being a household helper too. For my previous families my responsibilities included nursery pick up, afternoon activities (arts/crafts, park, museums, play-dates, homework help, etc), errands for parents (taking children to hairdressers, after-school clubs, shopping), cooking dinner, baths and bedtime. Through private and agency work I also have substantial experience working with older children (12 plus) and have tutored children from 3-14 years.
Caring for my 3 year old nephew in France full time for 1 year.
I have completed several first aid courses through teaching at various schools and I have a current DBS.

I generally have good availability during the week as long as I am given 1 day’s notice as I may get a last minute babysitting or supply teaching job through my agencies otherwise. Weekends, I am happy to work afternoons and evenings but I’m always willing to negotiate dates and times if you urgently need cover. I am also happy to do long-term/ permanent placements.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
