I have over 15 years childcare experience. I love looking after children and have had experience with all age groups and children with special needs.

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.

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 for nannying. I’m still currently employed here as a housekeeper one day a week.

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.
