My Summary

DBS Check
Part Time Nanny

About Me

I am a 29 year old Chiltern trained nanny - maternity nurse - night nanny - sleep consultant and mother of one.

I live in Rothwell, Kettering with my husband and almost 4 year old boy.

I am looking for a new family /families to join from the end of December/ beginning of January 2019.

My Experience

My childcare experience comes from a variety of roles I have completed since my training, including working as a Supply Nursery Nurse for a Specialist Recruitment Firm in a variety of nurseries and primary schools which has taught me to become very adaptable. Previously I have nannied in daily, nightly, live-in, live-out & ad-hoc capacities including proxy-parenting (24 hour care).The variety of infants I have cared for has allowed me to have lots of sole charge of twins And triplets which is a particular area of interest to me and I enjoy the challenge this holds. I enjoy sharing knowledge by observing, supporting and advising parents on aspects of childcare relevant at the time such as feeding methods, sleeping and routines. I do support natural breastfeeding, and encourage this when possible.

I have knowledge and experience of babies with Reflux, Colic, Developmental Delay, Dietary Requirements and Allergies. And I am happy to support the infant and family through these difficulties and offer advice, support and suggestions that may help. At Sheffield Hallam University, I was privileged as part of my nurse training to take on practical placements inside Oncology and General Paediatric Wards as well as spending time with School Nurses caring for newborns to 18 years of age.

I take my professional role seriously and act discreetly and respectfully in clients homes giving the family the privacy and space they require whilst on duty. I endeavour to meet all the needs of the family and leave behind a relaxed and contented family.

Sapphire was an absolute star. Helped us out in an emergency and not only looked after and sing to my baby but also my partner who was laid up in bed.
We contacted Sapphire the night before we needed emergency care and she went above and beyond to ensure we weren't stranded.
We will definitely look at using Sapphire again, hopefully this time given her much more notice.

Sapphire looked after our twin three-year-olds for a week and a half assignment and we were extremely pleased at how quickly she established a rapport with the children.

Sapphire has lots of ideas for fun and learning play activities, both indoors and outdoors, including taking the children on trips to parks. We always had confidence that the children were in very safe, experienced hands.

Sapphire also gave us lots of great advice along the way on a variety of subjects including toilet-training and sleeping. We will be asking her to return before long for sleep consultations.

Based on all the above points we thoroughly recommend Sapphire.

Thank you Sapphire!

Sapphire is a delight and my son absolutely adores her. He is always so excited when he knows she is coming.

She is very knowledgeable and qualified. She is easy to contact, responsive, and timely. I trust her immensely and know I'm leaving my child in good hands.

I would highly recommend Sapphire to anyone looking for excellent childcare.

Sapphire first started working with my baby when he was about 3 weeks old. He was my first baby and I needed guidance on settling him for naps and establishing a routine. Sapphire helped my baby progress from being fed or rocked to sleep, to becoming an independent sleeper. She also gave me feeding advice and help with all sorts of other issues that cropped up along the way. My baby now naps regularly and is a very happy 8 month old!

Sapphire was always punctual, reliable and great to have around. My son loved spending time with her and he obviously felt safe with her. I used to email Sapphire from time to time with problems or questions and she was always so helpful. Thank you Sapphire!
