I grew up in North Northumberland and am now living in London I was previously studying Childhood Studies at Norland College up until February 2011 when I unfortunately had to leave due to illness, so I only managed to complete my first term and a half. I am very much a people person, I am easy going and get along with all kinds of people, i am bubbily and fun with a great love for children. I’ve previously worked in a local café and obviously in school settings and other settings with children. I have helped out at a lot of charity events and done various babysitting and childminding jobs. I left school summer 2011 on gaining my qualifications, I am a keen Skiier representing my school for 6 years as well as previously being part of the rounder’s team and hockey team. I also went to school in France so speak some French and although I’m not fluent I can still hold a conversation .
I have spent a lot of time volunteering in different types of settings such as holiday clubs, Sunday schools, schools, boarding houses as well as home settings. I have been helping at my local school since about the age of 11 where I used to go in during my holidays and help out where ever I could. While at boarding school I went in the evenings to the junior boarding area where I helped out with bed time and various evening activities up until leaving school after upper sixth. Upon leaving I went on to study Childhood Studies, which as previously mentioned I unfortunately had to drop out of due to illness. But during my time there we had alternate weeks in placement. My first setting was a school nursery where the children were aged between 3 and 5, at this setting I organised activities and snack time for the children. My placement in my second term was in Norland Nursery which is a private free flow nursery, this means that the children flow freely between the different rooms and allows children to make their own decisions. The children are between 16 weeks and 5 years. While at Norland College i was of course CRB checked and managed to carry out my first term and a half of learning so I do still hold some of the Norland values which I learnt during my time there. Along with studying I also did various babysitting jobs, the two regular jobs I had were nannying once a week for two separate families. The first family had a 9 year old and a 12 year old so I helped them with their homework and played with them. The other family had a 16 month old who I used to take to the park when weather permitted, play with, bathe, change, feed and generally keep him entertained.
I worked for a family for a year for three afternoons a week looking after two lovely children aged 2 and 5. I collected them from school and nursery, helped with homework, played with them and prepared and gave them supper as well as occasionally bathing them and getting them ready for bed. I also did a few full days where I’d take them on trips such as the museum and the zoo etc. I have also obtained a PVG for my previous job as nursery temporary supply staff, as well as helping in after school clubs and nurseries, I have gained experience working with children with special needs, specifically a 7 year old girl with autism who I regularly looked after along side her 6 year old brother as well as gaining twin experience working for a family with 2 year old twins. I also did a lot of work with new borns as well. I worked from January 2015 until April 2016 part time looking after a little girl who'd just turned 2 and her 9 year old brother although i started looking after them when she was only 18 months old. I mainly looked after the little girl due to the brother being at school most of the time but during the holidays he joined in and I also took him and his friends on trips to the cinema, laser quest, museum etc. During term time I assisted him with homework. I did full nursery duties for the little girl - cooking simple meals, feeding, taking her to the park, organising and taking her to song groups and various other activities as well as changing, bathing and putting her to bed. I also did regular babysitting for the family. More recently I have worked as a holiday nanny, I have worked in sporting holiday lodges as well as other holidays in destinations such as south Africa, Geneva and Ibiza. Home settings and proxy parenting included Geneva and London. Between May 2016 and September 2017 I was employed as a nanny/governess for a UHNW family in London looking after 3 children under 3 in a fully staffed household with regular longhaul travel. I am currently working (since January 2018) for a family with two children who were 20 months and 4 at the start of the position. I undertake all nursery duties in this role as well as doing all child related admin including all shopping related to the children.

Fantastic with my 2 children including my daughter who has autism and learning difficulties. Suitably strict when needed but firm and fair too. My children and I really like Molly and I feel happy leaving the children in her care whenever she is available. Would not hesitate to recommend.
