I am a patient and flexible person who enjoys working with children.
Imaginative and messy play are my favourite things to do. Each week I try to plan stimulating, age appropriate activities.
I like to create a strong bond with the families that are in my care. I aim to work closely with the parents, sticking to their routine and encouraging a stable environment.
A regular babysitter of 16+ years.
Play leader in a Crèche with aged 6 weeks onwards.
Nursery Nurse at an outstanding Kindergarten for 3 years full time. I had key children and was involved in the daily planning.
I have been a nanny for many families of all ages over the past 8 years, here and in Australia.
I have worked in a special needs school as a learning support assistant.
Before I had my daughter I regularly volunteered at Emmer Green Primary school, helping with reading, writing and school trips.
Since 2016 I have been working as a paediatric carer/PA doing night shifts.
When possible I raise money for charities that support my disabled nephew (Naomi House, Alexander Devine etc)
Most importantly I am a mummy to a gorgeous little girl :)

Ria looks after our two boys two days per week. In the 7 months she has been working with us she has shown herself to be reliable and honest and incredibly caring. I really can't recommend her enough.
She takes our 5 year old to school in the morning and then spends the day with our youngest who is nearly 3. She takes him out to toddler groups, the playground and the park or just out for walks in the wood. On quieter days she will play at home and always has fun ideas. She then collects our eldest from school brings them home for play, homework and dinner.
Our boys adore Ria. She is incredibly kind, caring and loving and has a natural ability to connect with children on their level.She manages to be both calm and enthusiastic at the same time, engaging happily with the children's interests and activities. She is always positive and they always look forward to the time they spend with her. They are happy and very well looked after.
