About Me

My name is Susanna and I have over 17 years experience in child care. I really enjoy working with children stimulating their development. I find it a very fulfilling career.

As I am in a permanent nanny role I am only available for babysitting

I am a fun loving, caring nanny. I am reliable, honest and trustworthy.

I am involved in voluntary work, which takes up a lot of my time outside of my employment. I also enjoy baking, crafting and photography. I love the countryside and being in my garden.

My Experience

I have been nannying for over 17 years as well as working in other childcare roles. I have worked for 10 different families, with children as young as 2 weeks to 11 years. I have developed my abilities working for the needs of babies, preparing feeds, maintaining good routines, weaning, providing a safe and simulating environment and providing through the night care. I have much experience with toddlers, promoting positive behaviour, assisting with toilet training, planning and implementing activities and outings that are age and stage appropriate and that are of educational and developmental benefit in harmony with the EYFS. As the children in my care have grown older I have escorted them to and from school and other activities, I have assisted with homework, also encouraging appropriate rest and exercise. I have planned indoor and outdoor activities to engage older children especially during school holidays. I have experience a work as a proxy parent while parents are away.
I have responded to the changing needs as the children as they have grown while taking advantage of many opportunities to move their development forward.
I have worked with children who have special medical needs and children on the autistic spectrum.
I cook healthy family meals and have experience in housekeeping duties. I have cared for family pets where necessary.
I have written references from my previous nanny position.

Susannah is a very polite, kind and capable lady who is brilliant with kids and is excellent at keeping them engaged. She is very self motivated and committed to her job.
Sussanah looked after both my 2 boys from when they were newborn. She worked for us over a period of 8years and then on an adhoc basis after that.
She always used her own initiative to come up with routines and activities for the children without being asked. Although she didn’t have to fill any documents she had a good knowledge of the Early Years Outcomes, Statutory Framework & Other Ofsted requirements and ensured the kids were engaged in a way so that they fulfilled these requirements.
She potty trained them, joined them to the library, took them to engagement groups and even planned short trips with them to places like Cadbury world, Warwick castle etc
Although my kids are now 13 and 6 they’re still attached to her and always excited to see her.
I would highly recommend Susannah and wouldn’t hesitate re employing her is I had another kid.

Thank you eccab77. I loved caring for your boys.

Susanna quickly established a good relationship with our Kids of 1,8 and 10. We feel confident in her good judgment and long term experience as a nanny. Whether it’s been a short 3 hours stay or overnight stays (including picking the kids up from school) she has been reliable and professional with good communication throughout. I happily recommend her.
