About Me

Hi I'm Jess. I'm a 34 year old mother and an experienced practitioner. I have worked with children and families for over 7 years. My education, working experience, and my own experience of motherhood, mean that I understand the importance of ensuring that the emotional and developmental needs of children are met to a high standard, especially within their early years. I believe that consistent, patient and loving carers have the ability to provide children with solid foundations and tools which will help to support and guide them throughout their childhood, into their adult lives.

I believe that childcare is an important and privileged role and that with individualised care, nurture and support, a child has the ability to feel valued, heard, safe and reach their fullest potential, whatever this may look like.

I hold an enhanced DBS and Paediatric First Aid certificate
Professional references are available on request.
Able to register with Voluntary Ofsted register as a nanny in order to offer tax free childcare.
