I am a fun and friendly mum of 2 girls and live in Clevedon (near Bristol)
I love being outdoors with my children and dog- taking walks along the coast or in the woods- rain or shine.
We love painting, drawing, crafts, role play, reading, walks and bike/scooter rides :)
My main nannying role was from 2015-2017 working for a lovely family with 3 year old twins, both had special additional needs (ASD & ADHD). I had sole charge on 2 days and supported mum on the 3rd day due to health issues. I completely fell in love with these lovely children and loved my role as their nanny however had to leave due to travel issues and my own childcare. We spent our days playing in the garden with water, sand and messy materials, going for walks and trips to the park, baking, making smoothies and ice lollies in the warm weather and doing lots of crafty activities.
I also did after school care for an 8 year old one day a week in Clevedon, I took my daughter along and they got on extremely well and enjoyed playing together. I helped with homework and prepared snacks and tea for him.
Before nannying I have worked in a number of settings including nurseries, baby units and schools and have a range of experience with ages 0-10 years. I have experience working with children with additional needs and supporting children with English as an additional language. I have newborn and young baby experience too (being a mum myself I’m qualified in burping, nappy changing and general baby duties)
I currently work as a 1:1 LSA within a mainstream primary school supporting a little girl with Down’s syndrome, I have had this role for the past 3 years and absolutely love it.
I am Makaton trained.
My absolute passion in life is working with children and I have dedicated my life, career and education to improving my professional development and becoming the best early years practitioner I can be.
I also understand first hand how difficult it can be returning to work and leaving your child and am on hand to ease the separation and make the process happier and more comfortable for everyone :)
*11 GCSE's at level C and above
*2 A Levels and 1 AS Level

I have completed first aid training in the past (now expired) plus other various training courses such as safeguarding children, conflict resolution and food hygiene. I have a thorough knowledge of the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum.
I currently work in a school 2 days a week. I am looking for more hours and would leave for the right role.
I’m also available part time alongside my current job
Job would have to be on an employed basis (with the family being responsible for pay roll etc)

My husband and I interviewed laura as a prospective nanny for our son. Laura clearly loves working with children and is deeply enthusiastic about her job and her children. Had scheduling not been a factor I would have happily hired laura. I think she will make a fantastic nanny for someone.
