Hi! My name is Akhila Gill and I am 27 years old. I have been working with children since the age of 18. I have always been very passionate about childcare and have a vast amount of experience and knowledge in this field of work. I am always trying to grow my knowledge and take part in training courses to ensure I am up to date and constantly educating myself.
I am a very confident and bubbly individual and in my spare time I enjoy reading and singing. I take pride in being a very organised person and I believe my skills as a nanny fit well into every family.
Overall I’m a very friendly and kind individual and I gel with new families pretty quickly :)
Please note I am currently only looking for 40+ hours per week.
I have worked in a nursery where I my successfully completed my childcare apprenticeship and I worked with children from birth through to 5 years of age, I worked here for 4 years in total. During my time here I was a key worker for 11 children and I have a great knowledge of the early years foundation stage. Also during this time I was a regular ad hoc babysitter for many of the families who attended the nursery and this is what made me want to start a career as a nanny.
Once I left the nursery and had completed my childcare apprenticeship and became a qualified early years educator, I started being a part time nanny whilst studying childcare management at university .
I now hold a childcare management degree.
Since I completed my studies at university I have worked as a full time nanny for the past 9 years with ages birth- 12. I believe I fit well with families routines and I have a very high standard of health and safety. I am very experienced in planning activities for the children whilst ensuring I am taking care of their developmental needs.
As a nanny I also believe learning through play is a huge part of children’s development. I think daily activities and attending classes and groups frequently help to encourage social skills and development and I’m a big believer in busy days and set activities !

Akhila looked after my son aged 2 for a short period of time during November 2020- jan 2021.
I am a single father and freelancer and Akhila was amazing and flexible! She worked for us for two months temporarily whilst I was in the process of switching jobs and moving house . We discussed that she would want to eventually return back to full time work and she was willing to help me out until I found a more permanent job. She even helped with the process of selecting our new part time nanny. My son absolutely loved her and he kept to his routine despite the move thanks to Akhila
I can not express how great she is and how much myself and my son could rely on her during such a crazy time !
I recommend her to your family with no doubt.
Akhila looked after my 2 kids for a period of 1.5 years then aged 4 and 6 years.
She was punctual, reliable and most importantly was a natural with kids. She genuinely enjoys being around children and is able to connect with them effortlessly.
She was meticulous about her duties and got children to keep to their routine. She knew how to establish boundaries and could manage the children well.
My children fondly remember her and we are lucky to have her over for babysitting once in a while. I would highly recommend her!
Akhila looked after my two boys aged 1 and 5 at the time. This was a full time position with my younger son and after school with my eldest.
She was great at prepping meals and ensuring the kids stuff was ready for the next day. She is very organised and would have a planner on the fridge for me to see what the children ate and what activities the younger baby had or was going to have for the next day.
She is very friendly and easy to get along with and I never worried with my children being in her care especially given her amount of experience and qualifications.
I would highly recommend her as a nanny .
