My name is Lucinda, or Lulu to most children. I am a fun and bubbly personality with a great imagination. I have worked with children for a long time and I enjoy every minute (even the tantrums!). Some of the parent's I have worked with have nicknamed me their fairy godmother!
I have my own car, nanny and maternity nurse insurance, I am fully first aid qualified and I have a recent CRB check. I also like to keep updated with training.
I am a very experienced Maternity Nurse, Sleep Trainer and night nanny. I also work well trouble-shooting for parents and offer a hands on advice service to help with practical parenting.
I originally qualified as a nursery nurse and nanny over twelve years ago. I then went on to specialise in newborns and children with special needs. I worked as Deputy manager of a small private day nursery for two years and I have had vast experience of sole charge nannying. I have also qualified as a maternity nurse practitioner. One of my particular skills is helping first time parents in setting up a baby's routine or dealing with parenting issues such as unmanageable behaviour.
In recent years I have gone on to do a degree in Psychology and a Masters in Applied Psychology. I have worked for the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service where I worked closely with families with children who have learning difficulties such as Down's Syndrome, Autism, ADHD, ODD, PDA, Fragile X and so on. I have also trained in Disability Awareness to a high level and I have a great deal of experience of working with children with conditions such as Cerebral Palsy, Spina Bifida and other neurological conditions.

Soon after the birth of my baby I needed someone reliable and trustworthy to help me look him. I knew Lucinda was the one that I wanted to leave my baby in her care. I gave birth to a baby boy 6 weeks early. Lucinda was a great support in caring for him and helping me with my tiny, fragile little boy. The support she gave me day and night was incredible! Ethan developed colic at a couple months old, when I thought I couldn't cope with a screaming baby any more Lucinda was there to give me a hand and if need take over to give me a break. Lucinda is the only person apart from me that can settle Ethan if he's upset due to her caring nature. Lucinda and Ethan developed an unbreakable bond that will never be broken to the degree that I have mad her his Godmother! xxx
