About Me


I am writing to you to express my interest in taking the opportunity to become a nanny/babysitter for your family. I have over five years-experience in childcare and helping to manage children’s development.

Being a driven and compassionate nanny helps me to care and look after children. I am a creative and energetic individual who loves to plan and carry out fun and educational activities. I believe I am the right fit to be a positive influence on your children.

Some of my core skills:

Engaging and encouraging children with games and activities

Preparing well balanced healthy meals including dietary requirements.

Organising play-dates, outdoor activities, birthday parties and fitness activities.

Providing safe and nurturing environments to help your children’s development.

In previous roles, I have arranged a weekly sit-down conversation with the parents to discuss the children's growth and progress. I find that this offers peace of mind and parents value the input and ability to maintain and set expectations. I excel at problem solving, and the ability to remain calm under pressure in stressful situations. I am a confident in functioning well independently or part of a partnership.

I am certain that my skills, qualifications and demeanor make me the perfect candidate to help your household. I have attached my CV that highlight my skills, previous work and academic background. I would welcome the opportunity to discuss this opportunity further.
