I am a self-employed OFSTED registered Nanny/home childcarer and sitter (and mother!) with a great reputation and come with excellent references...
A highly competent and enthusiastic carer-sitter-nanny-supportive human, with a warm and kind personality, superb communication skills and a passion for caring for others. Multi skilled and self motivated with a dedication for providing good quality personal and physical care in a person centred way.
I am the mother of 3 exceptional (now adult) children all in their mid twenties.
I have had over 15 years of care experience in various care/support settings from primary schools to residential care homes - I also provide respite for families in their own homes (PA work) - more recently I have been a community support services assistant - empowering adults who have learning disabilities to live as independently as possible according to their needs. I also have years of experience in regular babysitting/childcare/nannying practice. I have been lucky enough to have worked with both children and adults who are particularly vulnerable in the world - specialising in ASD/autism, dementia and learning disabilities. I have hands on experience and training in dementia in all forms and stages. I love being a good role model and understand the importance of consistency in my own behaviour - working with integrity & being accountable is essential to the care I provide. I am a responsible person with an altruistic attitude and love having the ability to have a positive influence on an individuals day, whether they be a big person or a little person. I have gained exceptional interpersonal skills over the years - am able to stay calm under pressure and enjoy communicating well. I love food and cooking very much, have always got 1 or 3 books on the go, love travelling/culture/diversity and always eager to learn new skills.
My own well being is important to me ~ I am super healthy with a good diet and lots of nutritional knowledge - I exercise daily and practice meditation twice a day for inner peace and clarity. I am a compassionate soul with a huge sense of fun and positivity. I am totally flexible and adaptable to any situation. I am an experienced, confident driver - I have a new reliable car and a clean driving licence held for over 25years - I can drive both manual and automatic cars. Am willing to travel.
I am a non smoker and am an animal lover.
I work with various wondrous families and super children of varying ages (including babies) throughout the week - I’m also lucky enough to provide companionship to an absolutely incredible 94yr old lady! I am currently a temporary Nanny for an amazing, inspirational family who have 4 children - I have sole charge of their now 1yr old daughter & have been fully involved in her baby-led weaning process as have worked with her since she was 3 months old - I take care of their 5year old son who has Down syndrome, after school - they have two older children, aged 10 & 12 - I help them with homework on occasion and cook healthy meals for all the family when I’m on duty - mainly lunch and dinner. I assist with bath times, reading bedtime stories & bedtime routines.
I’m a Personal Assistant/mentor to a wonderful 13yr old girl who has a diagnosis of ADHD - she has a brilliant personality & we have lots of fun together!
I feel super blessed to have had this invaluable experience working with wonderful people/families - the babies are amazing & I’ve loved seeing their progress and they all have taught me so very much!
In the past I have spent a total of 8 years within a primary school setting, mainly in key stage 1, specialising in Early years - EYFS - ‘every child matters’ - learning through play and in particular, SEN.
Maintaining faith and integrity in my relationships with all of the children, not just the little people I worked with in particular, became incredibly important to me — I understand that children need stability and consistency, someone they can rely on and trust implicitly and also have the best adventures with! Also I recognise that I am super maternal and love to nurture and nourish with compassion, love and fun - I relate to children of all ages, enjoy being around them very much and learn from them how to be an exceptional role model myself.
I have had girls I taught in reception, before going off to grammar school, come to my home for sleepovers when they were 11 years old, which meant so much to me! I have personally kept in contact with many many families, parents and children I have had the pleasure of working with over the years.
I’m lucky enough to have gained a wondrous wealth of all sorts of hands-on childcare experience, including bringing up my own 3 exceptional human beings (now fully fledged adults) - I am a PA in Kent & East Sussex and have provided respite for families whilst caring for their severely autistic children in their own homes. I am currently registered & have been for the last 6 years - with two sitter/childcare agencies, who grant me incredible opportunities for me to expand my passion for caring for and having fun with children in all sorts of settings- I have travelled to the south of France for 11 days, meeting the family there and having sole charge of the parents one year old son - providing nurture, stimulation, activities both indoor and outdoor, bathing/dressing/feeding, provided all round excellent housekeeping skills and cooked for the family whilst there.
I have spent 5 years (until 2020) working full time for The Canterbury Oast Trust as a care/support worker for adults who have learning disabilities, empowering them to be as independent as possible according to their needs - this experience has provided me with outstanding interpersonal skills and incredible training/learning opportunities for which I’m super grateful for. I loved bringing sunshine & joy to these peoples lives and regularly keep in touch with certain individuals.

Nushi is a gold standard nanny. Nannied for our four children (4, 8, 10, 14), bringing games, warmth and happy vibes with her. Our children adore her so much! I really felt at ease with Nushi. Great communication, would highly recommend. Thank you Nushi 😊
