About Me

Hi, my name is Amy.

I am available for some after school pick ups on adhoc basis (NB will need to have my baby with me and maybe 3.5yr old too if she's not at nursery).

I believe I am a kind, caring, patient and loyal person with a passion for watching and encouraging children to grow and develop their independence, self-belief and personality.

My Experience

I have over 10 years experience with children aged 0-11yrs with nearly 6 of those years with children aged 0-5yrs and have 2 children of my own (born April 2018 and August 2021).

After leaving college in 2010 I worked in the toddler and preschool room of a Private Nursery in Lee Green. I was eager to find my feet and desperate to gain as much experience as quickly as possible so after just over a year of working there I went to work as a teaching assistant/ learning support assistant and midday meals supervisor in a Primary school in Forest Hill. I loved working there and spent a lot of my time there working in reception, year 1 and year 3. After nearly 2 years of working there I met my partner (who lived in Walthamstow) and decided that we wanted to live together so I found a job in Chingford (East London) and we moved to Chingford. I worked in a Primary School in Chingford as a Hearing Support Assistant. This role helped to improve my British Sign Language skills (which I'd gained from secondary school). I supported deaf/hearing impaired children within a mainstream school using BSL and SSE (Sign Supported English). After 2 years of working at the school a Nanny position came up and having wanted to try nannying since college I gave up my job to be a Nanny. Over 3 years as a nanny I worked for 5 different families (all on part-time/term time only/adhoc basis). I February 2018 I moved back to Eltham in preparation to have my daughter and be closer to family, my nanny roles ended (due to being too far to travel) and in April 2018 I had my beautiful baby. In September 2018 I started working in a school in Charlton, while my mum looked after my daughter but 6 months down the line I found that my childcare arrangements were not working for my little family and found a position in a private nursery (where my daughter also attends) which is where I have worked since March 2019. I have since moved to St Mary Cray and had another baby who was born at the beginning of August 2021.
