I am a self motivated, organised and flexible childcare professional with 15 years experience both as a private nanny and as a nursery nurse. As a nanny I am caring, fun, active, outgoing, confident and very creative. I am able to work on my own initiative, organising a suitable daily routine for the children in my care. I am able to work equally well as a member of a childcare team. I relish the opportunity to work in partnership with parents in the raising and nurturing of their children. I have proven leadership skills, motivating a team of staff within a nursery setting as I worked as the room head for two years. I am an effectve communicator at all levels, I am also a very reliable and hardworking individual and can provide excellent references.
During my time working In childcare I have gained valuable experience of caring for all ages, from birth to 16 years.
I have held a full driving licence for over 13 years and own my own car, which I am happy to use for work. I enjoy doing creative activities with the children such as painting, cooking etc. I also enjoy the outdoors very much and believe this is very stimulating for the children to enhance their physical developmemt and exploration of the environment. In the 15 years that I have worked in childcare I have thoroughly enjoyed it and find it very rewarding.

Kirsty, has looked after my two sons (now aged 2 and 4) for the last year. We’re only giving her up due to our relocation! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her, and her next family will be very lucky to have her.
She was very punctual and reliable, and was brilliant with my sons - caring but firm when needed. Most importantly I had total peace of mind when the boys were with her.
