About Me

I have over 25 years professional experience working with children and families . I am Ofsted Registered as a Nanny.

I'm insured, have multiple qualifications such as academic, Paediatric 1st aid and Food Hygiene and Parent Power training.

I can work at your home , run activities and follow requested routines for meals , home work and bedtimes.

I'm happy to prepare light meals ( snacks, sandwiches drinks) or serve pre prepared meals.

I do like to have a structure and routine for the babies. children and young people. I have found this helps to manage expectations, screen time, play time, meal and snack times. I always try to balance the activities with rest, play, screen time and quiet time with reading etc before naps and bedtime.

I prefer to concentrate my time on working with the children and prefer to avoid house work, laundry and other tasks a cleaner or housekeeper would undertake. I will always tidy as I go, am very organised and am very conscious of health and safety, of myself and others.

I have 2 car booster seats and am happy to do outdoor visits such as parks, swimming, running around, games and adventure challenges , like treasure hunts and role play games. When the sun is out, its good for the children to get some exercise and fresh air. Even if in a pram or pushchair.

I only have very limited experience caring for children with disabilities .

My Experience

I began my Children's Services career as a volunteer for Portsmouth Home Start. Visiting families with children under 5. Most of my work in the early days of my career was play work, after school clubs and activity schemes. I love the creative side of children's work and have a huge amount of energy to match the demands.

As I grew in knowledge and skills my role continually developed. Working with Young Carers for 8 years, setting up youth clubs, support groups, fundraising , taking groups of inner city children sailing and personal development outdoor holidays and educating School teaching professionals on the needs of these children and young people. The ages I have worked with throughout my carer range from babies to 25 year olds.

Whilst working residentially, I used to encourage the children and young people to participate in outdoor activities and trust and team building skills. I am also an aunty to many nieces and nephews and have spent time with most of them as children.

I strongly believe in continued personal and professional development of which I can fully demonstrate.
