About Me

My name is Leah and I’m a 32 year old nanny from Lewknor, Oxfordshire. I am a hardworking, trustworthy, reliable woman with an NVQ2 in childcare. I have over 13 years childcare experience. I love looking after children and have had experience with all age groups and children with special needs. I like to provide a caring, safe and stimulating environment to promote children’s development. I consider myself to be fun, energetic, kind, caring and loving. I enjoy watching/helping children learn and develop and love the children I look after to have lots of fun. I have a full, clean driving license and my own car. I also have a DBS, first aid certificate, an equality & diversity award, 10 A-C grade GCSE’s and excellent references.

I’m looking for a full time position or part time 2-3 days a week

My Experience

April 2019 - October 2020

•Nanny/Housekeeper Tuesday, Thursday, Friday

Working 20 hours a week for a lovely family near Aylesbury. 2 children aged 10 & 13.

Our days are always fun filled whether that be trips to the park, arts and crafts, baking, music time, story time, puzzles etc.

April 2017-June 2018

•Nanny. Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday 9am-12pm and evening babysitting.

I started this job in 2017 looking after a 1 year old little girl in Summertown. We quickly became the best of friends and I loved watching her go from a shy little girl to a confident little lady :)
Duties were to look after her 3 mornings a week sole charge.
Our mornings varied but we spent a lot of time outside; at the park, feeding the ducks etc.
I introduced her to pottery painting, music and toddler groups.
I helped her with balance when walking, encouraged her to count through play and helped her with social skills by encouraging play with other children.
This position ended in June 2018 due to her starting nursery.
I loved this position and adored the family with whom I hope to stay in contact with.

2011-Present

•Nanny/Housekeeper. Full time and then part time in June 2018

I started this position when the children were 9 and 12 and I’ve been here for 9 years.
Duties varied over the years but have included: help with homework, meal preparation, school runs, day trips, food shopping, weekly stays whilst parents were abroad.
I also did all cleaning, ironing, laundry, organised and arranged all appointments eg. Dentist, doctors, opticians etc.
I also filed away all paperwork and kept on top of things like boiler servicing, annual services and check ups.
I've also overseen building work for the family and organised work to be carried out.
I really am just an extra pair of hands, someone to keep on top of everything whilst taking care of the children.
The children have both now grown up and are adults themselves so I’m no longer needed. I’m still currently working here currently just housekeeping 2 days a week. Days are flexible.

Full Time Nursery Assistant

Whilst working at this nursery, I worked mainly with the 2-3 year olds. I helped contribute to planning the children’s day, making displays, preparing snacks and meals etc. My role was to provide a safe yet stimulating environment for the children thinking of activities to promote development. We enjoyed doing activities such as: puzzles, gluing, painting, cooking, story time etc.
I had a lot of experience with children aged 6months-5 years as I had to have work experience with all age groups whilst completing my NVQ2 in Childcare. I also completed my first aid training whilst at this setting as well as completing an ‘equality and diversity’ course.
I decided to leave the nursery at Christmas, as I felt I would like a career change starting from the New Year.
