Hi my name is Kamilah .I am a 30 year British Nanny with over 10 years childcare experience specialising from 0-5 years.I primarily work with new borns & infants to support my current training however I welcome children of all ages.I am also a mother myself to a fun loving 8 year old.
I would describe myself as gentle, patient & trustworthy person with a real genuine passion for my work. I have always enjoyed looking after/spending time with children and feel honoured that I able to assist a families in giving their child the best possible foundation.
I believe that a baby/child should be guided through life by first gaining trust and respect. By building relationships with the children I care for I am able to connect on a deep level, build a safe, loving relationship and offer a stable and safe environment. With that being said I love and respect “my children” whilst also providing and implementing clear boundaries and routines.
I am a calm Nanny who will be incredibly sensitive to your child’s individual needs and tend to build engaging schedules around their interests.A great skill of mine is that I am able to tailor my care style to mesh with the personality and temperament of your child/children according to their needs.
My belief is that children are innately interested in the world around them and through natural curiosity develop themselves. It is my role to support and encourage these behaviours by ;
* Making sure playrooms /areas have toys or materials that promote independent exploration to spark young imaginations.
* Ensuring I remain social with other Nannies, childminders and mothers so that your child/children can socialise daily with children of all ages - learning to experience new people naturally.
* Organising and exploring nature trips, in gardens/parks or as part of a forest school playgroup.I make sure that I venture out and have this as part of a their daily routine no matter the weather (dressed accordingly).
Overall I provide a safe, fun and caring enviroment for children to be looked after.If you are looking for a Nanny to become part of the family and be loyal to your family please do not hesitate to enquire about my services.

Kamilah looked after our son for a part-time nanny share arrangement, 2 days per week, for 8 months. She cared for our son, who was aged 15 months at the time that the nanny shared commenced, together with another little girl of a similar age.
Kamilah was a wonderful, dedicated and gentle nanny, and we would not hesitate to highly recommend her.
Kamilah’s ability to handle the nanny share never ceased to impress us. She was exceptionally calm, experienced and confident, and fully able to handle the demands of two energetic toddlers. Nothing was ever a problem for her. She was always organised and showed great skill in planning the children’s days to suit their different interests, encouraging them to play together and creating enjoyable shared meal times. We particularly appreciated Kamilah’s ability to ensure that our son and his friend had a rich balance of social time with groups of other children; dedicated bonding time with just each other; active time in playgrounds, soft play and parks; and quieter time at home.
Beyond the requirements of the nanny share, we found Kamilah to be a gentle, patient and creative nanny. She brought her gentle sense of humour to every interaction with both our son and his friend; she was always listening to them, engaging with them and talking to them, while also encouraging their independence and allowing them to lead and structure their own play. We also loved her creative ideas for activities, from pipe cleaners and communal drawing to water play and pasta arranging.
We are sure that Kamilah's next family will be lucky to have her.
I would like to highly recommend Kamilah for all childcare purposes. She has been our nanny for the last 16 months, and will be sadly missed by us all. She is fantastic with children, reliable, caring and fun. Our children are so lucky to have had her care during their early years, and whilst my youngest was a newborn I couldn't be more grateful for all her help and support.
