About Me

Hello all and welcome,

I am Alex. I am currently 39 years old and work as a Nanny and Dog Trainer & Pet Sitter. I live in Leigh-on-Sea, close to the beach. I hold a full, clean driving license and am a non-smoker. I’m spiritual and holistic in nature and my open heart centre means that I am very loving and caring. I build a trusting relationship with the child and work with different positive methods in order to maintain my rules and regulations. I teach children about choice, honest, acceptance and respect within day-to-day life.

I am happy to take the children out to the park, beach etc. We will choose fun activities to do which range from learning about their health and the outdoors to meditating. I will also cook healthy, balanced meals (if required). I am able to help them with homework, bath them and put them to bed. I encourage healthy eating, plenty of exercise and good manners as often as I can. I believe these to be very important factors in one's life, especially having worked in the Montessori environment.

I work in partnership with the family, taking responsibility for the safety and development of the children. I will take responsibility for the children’s laundry, maintain the cleanliness of equipment, toys and rooms used by the children. I will also drop off and collect children from schools or nurseries. Other activities such as visits to the swimming pool and library will also be my responsibility, so as to promote the social and educational development of the children.

(A nanny is not normally required to undertake general household duties unless this is specifically agreed within the job description.)

My personal interests include practicing yoga, reading and cooking // baking. All-in-all, I lead a happy, calm and positive life.

My personal qualities:
I am a friendly, polite, reliable, loyal, patient, well mannered, honest person with a happy and positive personality.

I am currently looking for part-time hours from Monday - Friday.

Peace and love,
Alex Kiernander

My Experience

*Over 20 years experience.

*Experience with babies as young as 4 weeks old.

*Experience with children with disabilities.

I first studied at college when I was 17 years old. Here I completed my NNEB certificate. The following year I was offered a job in a Montessori Day Nursery, where I worked for 4 years. I was then offered a job as a Nanny. I looked after three girls (4 weeks, 4 years and 6 years). After that I worked in Royal Village Day Nursery as a Nursery Practitioner where I gained my experience in working with children with disabilities. I have also worked in Alleyn Court Prep School as a Teaching Assistant. This is a Montessori based school, so I have plenty of experience in teaching children basic Maths, English and Science.

My Qualifications

I have my NNEB certificate in Childcare and Education.

My Availability

Term time only.

We are very lucky to have Alex as a part-time nanny. She is fantastic with our son who has come on in leaps and bounds with his communication skills. Alex picks up our son (4 years old) from pre-school and regularly carries out early development programme activities. Alex takes our son to the library, out for walks on the beach and to the shops. Alex cooks for our son, bathes him and settles him ready for bed. We are absolutely delighted. She is a gem!
