I am an outgoing 30 year old who loves interacting, playing and teaching children of all ages. I take pride in playing such a key role in helping, and watching children develop into the best little people they can be. I'm a relaxed, patient person and easy to get along with, I always have fun but would take my job role seriously.
I love music and singing, and I am very enthusiastic about everything I do.
I have 13 years nannying experience in total.
I started my nanny career in September 2011 I nannied for a family of 3, when I started the children were 6months, 4 years and 5 years.
I have a lot of experience with newborns-18 years, multiples and additional needs.
In 2018 I returned after au pairing in Australia for nearly 3 years with children aged between Newborn and 6, my most recent roles were looking after 3 boys aged 1.5,4,7- two days a week and 4 month old twins 3 days a week, so can get hold of some great references!
During the pandemic I gained experience as a senior Health Care Assistant at a children’s mental health hospital, caring for children 0-18 for 14 months.
All of my GCSE's are B's and C's and I have a BTEC Child Care, Learning and Development Level 3 qualification, which is equivalent to 3 A Levels.
First Aid trained.

Can’t recommend Jo enough having travelled with her and our daughter since she was 14 months old. Before I’d even asked Jo had started researching places to visit and activities to do each day. Nothing seems to phase her, her patience and calm demeanour makes every trip so easy. She is full of positive energy and has a great sense of humour, which is needed with a toddler! A super nanny who will be quickly loved and part of the family if you book her!
Jo was very accommodating and professional, she was even able to honor a last minute request to come over early. She was communicative on her first outing with our 1-yr old daughter. She took her to the library and sent lots of photos and updates throughout the afternoon. Our daughter was very comfortable with her quickly and Jo was a natural at getting her to play which made leaving for the evening very easy. She also did her bedtime routine and put her to sleep seamlessly.
Jo was a fantastic babysitter for our 8-month-old! She was punctual, fun, and handled bedtime like a pro. We'd definitely recommend her, and won't hesitate to contact her again in the future for any babysitting we need.
We met Jo through our childrens' nursery. She's always been a firm favourite with both of them, and they have been so excited to have her come and babysit. She's friendly, kind, reliable and so sweet with the kids. Very happy to recommend her.
We met Jo through her role at the local nursery for our two sons aged 1 & 4. She has known our oldest son since he was just over 2 years old.
Since then Jo has babysat our boys on an ad hoc basis for a combination of time frames (for a day or just an evening and sometimes both) and we would always contact her for support with our childcare in the first instance.
Our boys love spending time with her as she makes everything fun for them and they are so comfortable in her company.
Whilst being fun for the boys, Jo has a great focus on development and learning and how to challenge them.
She is an extremely reliable, positive and relaxed character. We have no hesitations recommending her.
