I am an experienced and professional nanny and childcare provider. 17 years experience of providing care and support to children, young people and adults of all ages, needs, abilties and backgrounds. Including Learning Difficulties, Physical Disabilties, Autism Spectrum Conditions, Emotional and Behavioural Disorders.
My main interests are centred around health and well being. Keeping active; being outdoors in nature; and nutrition, food is medicine after all!
I am passionate about supporting children in managing and expressing their strong emotions; supporting speech and language development; self-awareness, self-confidence and self-worth. Also teaching/modelling compassion and kindness for each other and for the Earth.
My name is Laura, I am 34 Years Old. Origionally from Liversedge, West Yorksire, now living in Ossett after previously living in London, Brighton and most recently Lisbon, Portugal with my partner who is an Osteopath.
Previously I was in the position of Level 3 Nursery Educator, working with the 2-3 Years age group.
In addition to my Nursery role; I worked for a lovely family providing in-home childcare each Saturday morning for a boy from 7 months; I have established a strong bond with the child and family who I feel value my knowledge and skills in supporting their childs development; with emphasis on supporting speech and langauge communication and being active outdoors.
I have provided in-home childcare for a 3 year old boy and 4 year old girl. with an emphesis on supporting the two children interact and co-operate well together. We spent a lot of time being active in the community. Enjoying the parks and other outdoor spaces; creative activities and baking at home and supporting the development of their individual interests.
Before moving to Brighton; I provided 1-1 intensive support and behaviour managment with a 5 year old boy who is on the Autistic Spectrum and has ADHD.
