About Me

27 year old based in Roath, Cardiff.

I am registered self employed Nanny currently working for 2 families on separate part time bookings alongside teaching yoga.
I have some availability to take on temporary and ad hoc bookings, please contact me if interested.

I am a positive, kind and energetic person who loves working with children and supporting their growth and development. My temperament is calm yet I can also be firm and implement boundaries when needed. My style and approach to childcare is influenced by Gentle parenting and Montessori philosophy. Whilst my approach is gentle and respectful, I am also highly organised and I believe in the benefits of routine for little ones. I am happy to discuss designing and implementing routines to suit your family.

I will be offering pregnancy yoga, postnatal yoga and Mum and baby yoga classes & private sessions from early 2022 - get in touch for more info or to be added to a waitlist.

In my spare time I enjoy yoga, spending time outdoors, swimming, skiing, reading, painting and baking.

My Experience

With extensive experience in private and luxury hospitality, I have looked after families with children aged from four months to fourteen years old.

Since returning from living and working in childcare in the Alps I have held sole charge Nanny positions caring for a number of babies and toddlers in the Cardiff area.

I am flexible in my work and my experience is extensive. I have experience of carrying out full daytime routines, from getting ready in the morning, changing, feeding, nap times, providing stimulating activities throughout the day, planning day trips, play dates, activities out of the house, to carrying out bedtime routines including bath time and reading stories.

I have experience of overnight care, proxy parenting, working with children with severe allergies and additional needs.

I am creative and enjoy planning crafts, games and activities as well as making learning fun, aiming to weave educational activities into daily play. I believe it’s very important to stay active and will regularly be dancing, singing, running around with the children in my care. I like to involve nature and the outdoors in learning and play from an early age.

I also have strong housekeeping and food service experience. I am confident in preparing and cooking healthy meals.

Althea is a great nanny who has taken care of our two little ones. She is energetic, caring, and fun. My children really enjoyed their time with her, especially with the practical activities (as preparing a pizza). She is also proactive and cooked for all of us while my little one was taking a nap. I highly recommend her!
