I HAVE INTRODUCED MYSELF BELOW:

THE NURTURING NANNY
"Providing a nurturing environment for the family to thrive"
Nurture. Nourish. Thrive

Welcome to the nurturing nanny family.
Alisha, 26 years, is the nurturing nanny.

I provide a bespoke, premium, nurturing childcare service in kingston upon thames,surbiton and surrounding areas where i also reside. I am also a an accredited master coach and I run transformyourpainintopower, a performance cosching program!

I have been very blessed to work in many education/childcare/family roles, including:
-Schools
-Nurseries
-Creche
-Private families (Nanny/Babysitter/Tutor/House-keeper/Bespoke cook/P.A and much more)

I NOTICED A NEED FOR A NURTURING, UNDERSTANDING AND PREMIUM CHILDCARER PROVIDER THAT PROVIDED MORE THAN JUST DUTIES, BUT ALSO ENHANCED THE ENTIRE FAMILY UNIT!
I provide a unique service supporting and nurturing the whole family, where I combine education,child development,and organisational skills.
I infuse my teachings and techniques with a mixture of:
- Psychology
- Mindfulness
- Nutrition
- Life coaching
- Attachment/ gentle parenting. I work with 'the attachment theory' in mind.
I know by providing as much compassion, affection and understanding as possible to the family unit, and using my expertise, knowledge and organisational skulls, I implement life changing techniques and create a nurturing long lasting approach with the children,parents and myself, that stays with the family, and creates a more thriving, happy and nurturing family unit.

The nurturing nanny goes by the ethos:

Nurture. Nourish. Thrive

I believes that every child is unique,talented and individual! I treat all children with love and compassion. I utilise my approach differently according to their abilities,needs, and age and stage development.
-----------------------------------------

"I believe in supporting,encouraging and enhancing!!! Not pushing!

To help to nurture the family to the utmost I make sure that I have/am the following:
I am :
*highly qualified
*fully insured
*enhanced DBS checked
*ofsted registered
*first aid trained
*open minded/non-judgemental
*Authentic and very honest
*Experience from ages newborn-18years, multiples experience, disability and special needs experience, challenging behaviour experience, allergy and intolerant experience and much more.
I LIVE A VEGAN/PLANT BASED LIFESTYLE, SO I UNDERSTAND THE IMPORTANCE OF DIFFERENT DIETARY REQUIREMENTS.

I have many certificates and qualifications including:
*Childcare level 2 & 3
*Child protection and safeguarding
*Food hygiene
*Nutrition (child & adult)
*Cognitive behavior therapy
*mindfulness
*managing behaviour
*Equality and diversity
*life coaching and nlp(pending)
And much more.

I love to work with children and believe they should be happy and cared for to a high standard! just seeing a child smile melts my heart.
I aim to successfully encourage,enhance and promote children's development by providing daily age and stage appropriate activities including;
Messy play/art play/baking/sensory play/outdoor activities/play groups/small world/communication activities/literacy/construction/personal,social and emotional development and of course lota of reassurance,cuddles and nurturing love etc

I continue to enhance and contribute my skills and I feel my personality,hardworking and determination make me an asset to any family!
I am a friendly, trustworthy and caring person with exceptional communication skills. Previous employment has enabled me to work under pressure in a team and also as an individual.
External and domestic relationships have exposed me to dealing with the less fortunate. With many years experience I have extensive knowledge and experience of mental illness,behavioral (caring for my brother and working alongside children) and physical disabilities( being a Carer for my mother and caring for children) and the effect they have on families,

I am happy and willing to meet new people and take further training and qualifications to enhance my professional and personal development!
( I do at least one-two course to further my development every year. I haveI have recently completed my cognitive behavioural therapy diploma and nutritional therapy for children and adults).
All the meals I provide include at least 7 different portions/varieties of fruit and vege and I aim to cook delicious and nutritious meals from scratch with most days providing more than the recommend 7-10 a day!

Over the past 5 years (whilst living in Surrey) and 3 years before that whilst up north alongside my other childcare roles I have cared for over 25 families in supporting roles such as nannying/babysitting/tutoring/mothers help/nursery nursing etc...

I absolutely love my role and working alongside so many families I am fortunate in that I get to care for so many different children from different backgrounds and actively nurture and change lives daily!

I believe every child is unique,special and individual and I treat all children differently according to their needs ,age and stage development! I only believe in enhancing,supporting and encouraging not pushing !!!

Whilst babysitting, I see Some families I see 1-3 times a week and some I see 1-3 times a month ( it varies in what the family needs) but I have a great relationship with all the families and usually feel like part of the family

What makes my services unique is that I truly care and like to support in all areas especially emotionally!
(I understand a lot as I have experienced caring for my ill mother, studying Cognitive behavioural therapy,life coaching and the fact that I base my techniques on my experiences in life and psychology and attachment ).

A happy and relaxed parent=A happy,healthy and nurtured child= A confident and nurturing nanny who can fulfill her role to the utmost and make the family thrive"-Alisha***

Nanny
"Alisha is truly the Mary Poppins that God sends to us. I am a fulltime working mum who has not much energy left to cook and clean, let alone keeping my energy up with 2 active boys. With Alisha's service, my life is so much easier. She helps me with batch cooking (extremely yummy and full of vegetables - the best part is the boys LOVE it!) and doesn't shy from light housework (cleaning the eating areas, boys' rooms and general areas boys play at).

What I love Alisha is that she is always punctual, no need for micromanagement, always come up with great ideas before I thought of it and suggested it in a very polite and diplomatic ways.

The most important thing, the boys LOVE her. Kids are clever, they know who truly has an interest in them - Alisha makes great effort in talking to them and has built great rapport within a short space of time.

I would highly recommend her to anyone"
By Grace

The Nurturing Nanny-Live out
"Alisha is a hugely caring and nurturing individual. She has made such a strong bond with my son who adores the attention she gives him and thrives on one to one focus. He loves to socialise at playgroups and is advanced in his skill-set's due to the variety of educational fun activities Alisha provides.
I can highly recommend Alisha. She is a delight to work with"
By Ray.P

The best nanny around
"We can't speak highly enough of Alisha. She loves her job and this shows with her enthusiasm and planning of activities (outings, arts and craft, baking, etc.). She is dedicated to ensuring that your child is loved and nurtured. She has nannied with us for well over a year, so has been with our daughter from baby to toddler and is very adaptable in her approach with children of different ages. She is prompt, punctual and keeps things very clean! We regard her as part of the family and so does our little one!"
by Gary.S

Could not be happier with The nurturing nanny
"Alisha is a wonderful, caring and brilliant babysitter. You can tell she genuinely loves children as soon as you meet her, and my 4 year old Alex is always so excited when I tell him she is coming to look after him.
She's so good, I almost don't want anyone else to know because it means she'll get booked up looking after everyone Else's children and poor little Alex will get sad because she's too busy!"

We've used Alisha a fair few times now for evening babysitting and she's absolutely great. She's reliable, so friendly and most importantly I feel happy leaving my 2 little boys (2 and 4) in her care.

I used Alisha for babysitting 3 years ago when my 2 little ones were 3 yrs old (girl) and 1 yr old (boy). She exceeds expectations when it comes to looking after kids, as she would bring them age appropriate books and toys; and clean up after the kids including doing some light housework without being asked.

Her love of children is obvious, and she has great pride in her work which is very reassuring in her line of work.

I would not hesitate to use her again or recommend her services to anyone.

Alisha is truly the Mary Poppins that God sends to us. I am a fulltime working mum who has not much energy left to cook and clean, let alone keeping my energy up with 2 active boys. With Alisha's service, my life is so much easier. She helps me with batch cooking (extremely yummy and full of vegetables - the best part is the boys LOVE it!) and doesn't shy from light housework (cleaning the eating areas, boys' rooms and general areas boys play at).

What I love Alisha is that she is always punctual, no need for micromanagement, always come up with great ideas before I thought of it and suggested it in a very polite and diplomatic ways.

The most important thing, the boys LOVE her. Kids are clever, they know who truly has an interest in them - Alisha makes great effort in talking to them and has built great rapport within a short space of time.

I would highly recommend her to anyone.

We had a lovely experience with Alisha. She was always full of energy and planned great activities for the kids. She was extremely caring and used to update us constantly about how they were doing. I felt the kids learnt a lot when they were with her, and they were always very enthusiastic whenever they saw her. She used to prepare a lot of meals not only for the kids but for the whole family and we used to find lots of arts and crafts waiting for us whenever we returned home. We can definitely recommend her. She is really a lovely person.

Alisha looked after our two little boys aged 4 and 16 months for 3 days a week and they loved every minute of it. Our relationship was only cut short due to a change in my working circumstances and it was a sad day for our family when we had to part company.

Her love of children is obvious from the outset and our boys immediately felt comfortable in her company. Her love and care for them was fantastic and she built a very strong relationship with both of them. They especially enjoyed all the drawing, painting and baking activities... especially when large quantities of cornflake cakes were involved!

It was a big step for us to have someone looking after our boys in our home, but we couldn't have found a better person to have done so.
A bubbly person with a big heart, she is a pleasure to be around... I was nearly late to work several times just from chatting to her!
