About Me

Thank you for looking at my profile.

My name is Sarah, I'm 34 and living in Southwick.

I have up to date DBS and first aid. I have also been Ofsted registered in the past for previous families and very happy to do this again.

I am looking for a new position to go alongside my current 18 hours a week nanny role.

The family I currently work for are very flexible and don't mind changing days etc so I can work for another family also.

I'm also available for local babysitting roles, emergency help and childcare consulting on a number of topics from baby led weaning to potty training.

I also offer one to one Montessori sessions where I can introduce little ones to Montessori resources in your own home.

I have over 8 years' experience as a nanny and 3 years' experience as a Montessori Teaching Assistant in a private nursery in Richmond, London. I absolutely love children and being in their company. I love my job! I have remained close with my previous families and love to visit the children.

I have worked as a nanny in London and Hove.

I have looked after children before with serious food allergies and skin conditions. Experience with administering epi pens.

I have an NVQ Level 3 in childcare and various Montessori courses.

I have excellent references from my previous 3 families, nursery managers and current family.

If you are looking for an experienced, professional nanny that loves spending time with children then I could be the nanny for you...activities that I would build into the day: parks, picnics, stories and cuddles, groups and clubs, baking, singing and dancing, tickles, library, museums, dressing up, hide and seek and much more.

Experienced in baby-led weaning, potty training, establishing routine and gentle sleep training.

Happy to take on nursery duties, light housework and run errands. Typical duties include: loading and unloading dishwasher, post office trips, children's laundry, unpacking online food shop, picking up dry cleaning, purchasing birthday cards and presents for children's parties and replenishing fridge/cupboards with essentials.

I am educated to post graduate level so very able to support homework. Good understanding of EYFS, phonics and various reading trees. Also very creative.

I am also a keen cook and able to prepare healthy meals from scratch.

Driver with own car. No points etc.

Thanks for reading, I'm aware it's rather long.

Please send me a message if this sounds like a good fit.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Sarah has been with us for 3 afternoons a week since end of February 2020. Having Sarah around has been invaluable to us and I could not be happier with how things have worked out. Sarah has built a very strong relationship with Helen [15 months old] and I think they enjoy each other's company. They go on an outing once a day when the weather permits. Sarah is great at coming up with different activities. I feel completely confident that any activity Sarah does with Helen will be safe and fun! Sarah often sends me photos so I know what they have been up to.

I have found Sarah to be always reliable, organised, flexible and is a pleasure to have in our home. Sarah has been supportive with any routine that we have set for Helen and follows our wishes unquestioningly.

I work from home and I keep myself out of the way, which we have found works well, but I do enjoy that I can often hear laughter coming from the room.

Sarah looked after my daughter full time from the age of 5mths until she went to nursery at 2yo. Sarah fitted in with our family really well, she was super organised, never late and really calm. She established great routines for Nuala and guided us through the weaning stage really well. Nuala has turned out to be a very socially confident toddler and loves Sarah to bits; they still meet up occasionally for playdates and Nuala loves seeing her. Would highly recommend!
