About Me

I’m a professional Nanny, fully trained to Level 3 Diploma in home based child care. I’m in my 50’s...more mature in years....I am registered with several Nanny agencies and worked for a number of families through agencies who can verify my professionalism and references.

I live in Hook with my husband and 2 adult children. I am looking for a family who require childcare in or around Hampshire/Surrey/ Berkshire area.
I’m calm, organised, fun, reliable, trustworthy and honest. I look for similar qualities in families I work with.

My Availability

I worked for over 20 years in the Industrial Gas industry in Chineham, Basingstoke and my 2 small children were cared for by a childminder. I therefore fully understand and appreciate the flexibility of childcare that is sometimes needed for working parents. I also appreciate concerns of leaving a child in another persons care and the importance that your child is being looked after by a loving, caring adult who will ensure your child is happy and feels secure.

I am willing to be flexible on hours of care and we can discuss your needs for you and your child when we meet.
