About Me

Hello, my name is Sophie,

I am a level 3 nursery nurse and hold several enhanced DBS checks (most recent March 2017). I am a chirpy well-mannered woman, I enjoy reading, swimming, sewing, socialising with friends. I am also a Beaver scout leader, the scouting association has given me a whole new set of skills over the last 3 years.

I am committed, reliable, flexible, fun loving and nothing brings me more pleasure than my job. I've been so lucky to have wonderful nanny families that even though I have moved on I still see regularly.

I have 5 years nursery experience and over 6 years nannying experience and I highly enjoy my job.

I have a a huge personal collection of resources that I have collected over the last 5 years, educational games and toys, huge amount of craft supplies etc.. all of which follow me to each family.

I am a confident cook, I hold a food hygiene qualification that was completed in August 2013. I also have a good understanding of healthy eating, the importance of exercise. I am creative, full of energy.

I am OFSTED registered. (renewal at the cost of the employer).

All certificates can been seen on request.

If you have any questions please email me

Thank you

My Availability

I am very flexible and willing to suit your needs.

Sadly, due to being let down many times by a few jobs and having to let other families down. I now have to ask for a £20 non refundable booking fee if cancled less 72 hours before start time.

My diary gets booked up fairly quickly at times, but it is always worth giving me a call though for a last minuet booking.

I can not recommend Sophie enough! One of the very few people I would leave my children with, knowing they are in safe, kind and capable hands. My children get so excited when Sophie comes and they always have so much fun together!

I can not recommend Sophie enough. I have 4 children aged between 10 and 5, Sophie has given top-quality care for my children, she provides a stimulating and safe environment for them to thrive. They thoroughly enjoy their time with Sophie as she implements excellently planned educational activities, motivates my children and is very supportive of their needs emotionally. Sophie is extremely well organised and is also an excellent cook!
