My name is Cheryl Ford.
Thank you for taking the time to click and read my profile.
I'm 33 years old and I would describe myself as a focused strong, ambitious individual that always wants to better myself in every aspect.
The strengths I feel that I can offer when working alongside your family is I'm caring, confident, creative, enthusiastic, patient and honest which I feel are great strengths to have when working with children.
Children in my care are always well looked after, milestones achieved and always have great fun.
I have gained a numerous amount of qualifications and experience working with children since I was 17, gaining my NVQ Level 2 & 3, Level 3 Teaching Assistant, Advanced management degree, first aid, safeguarding training, food hygiene and many more skills and qualifications.
Although my earlier roles were mainly nursery based over the last few years I have been working closely with children and their families offering regular care and very confident in what I do.
I feel I have very good knowledge of how to support and nurture the development and well being of children by ensuring they feel safe, happy and always included.
By understanding how each individual child thinks, feels and communicates, I feel enables me to build a strong effective relationship.
In 2015 were I achieved my Level Teaching Assistant Qualification I worked collaboratively with the teacher's providing support within the class room and occasionally worked one to one with individuals or carried out group activities, some of which were planned by myself to support the learning objectives of the lesson.
I was able to show in my role as a volunteer teaching assistant that I can, not only support pupils with additional needs but support the team I work alongside.
In 2017 during my time as a nursery deputy manager I achieved my advanced management degree.
I'm very organised, motivated and committed and I thrive on completing any goals set by myself and others.
I have two children myself, our daughter who is 8 and our son who is 3.
I love our children dearly, they are my world as well as my husband of 10 years and of course our 7 year old labrador Pearl.
Please feel free to read my references and contact me to ask any further questions.

Cheryl has been the nanny for my daughter for over a year now and I wouldn't change to anyone else. She is such a caring person and is amazing with my daughter Lilia. Cheryl is very interactive with my daughter and gives her all the attention she needs and I feel at ease as I know I'm leaving her in safe hands. I would highly recommend Cheryl if your looking for a loyal and devoted nanny!
I was the typical worried mum about finding someone I didn’t know to have my children. But having two close together, me and hubby absolutely need ‘us’ time!
I wanted someone down to earth, like minded and who id ‘have a glass of wine with’ and Cheryl is all that and much more!
She’s done 3 date days for us now and we have one every month booked till 2022, just wish she had more Saturdays free 🤣
We have been very close with our kids and never left them…so I would worry how they would be, My 2 year old is so excited when she’s coming! She is fun with them, energetic and playful, and follows the routine you set.
Try her you won’t regret it! Although I might if she’s fully booked now!

Thank you so much for your lovely review.
It has been my pleasure supporting and being part of your family and look forward to many more adventures in the future.
From day one you have made me feel welcome and your children are an absolute pleasure to look after.
See you all soon
I am writing this letter to recommend Cheryl Ford for a nanny/ childcare position. Cheryl has worked for me since November 2019 and has helped look after Harvey from 4 months old. Owing to her exceptional work assets she has become an asset to our family.
Throughout her time she has worked for me, i recognised her as a dedicated and dependable individual.
Cheryl knows childcare work extremely well, she has demonstrated that although she brings her own son Lincoln James with her, she can devote the same amount of time for both their nourishment and it’s been nice for Harvey to now have a beautiful little friend. Cheryl doesn’t take time off and is never late for work and is very flexible.
I highly recommend Cheryl and I am sure you will find her a friendly and fun individual who your children will warm to and enjoy being looked after by her.
I wish her all the luck in her future employment. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need anymore information regarding her abilities.

Thank you Julie for your lovely review.
It has been a pleasure to work with you and look after Harvey who has grown into a gorgeous little boy and look forward to continuing our relationship as he grows.
Take care and speak soon.
All the best
I met Cheryl at a point were I needed to arrange childcare for my toddler and baby. She is very prompt, professional, friendly and knows just how to relate with the kids. She is very personable and flexible and willing to support when possible within a short notice. She also helps with house chores and puts the kids to bed promptly when she is babysitting.
Definitely going to keep contacting her for our childcare needs 👍
