Hi families! I am a final-year student at Cambridge University always looking to continue with my passion for nannying during my vacation periods. I am happy to be used as a stopgap for a family whose long-term goal is to find a more permanent nanny, to assist with travel or simply to provide an extra pair of hands during hectic periods!
My degree is in Education, so I have plenty of child development related knowledge. Infact, I hold a McAulay (academic) scholarship and have won a Wright Prize for my performance in first and second-year exams, so I am passionate about the study of Education, academically able and ready and able to tutor you children! I am also passionate about the creative arts and this informs my nanny practice through the use of arts-based play and excursions.
I have held 4 live-in childcare jobs, including working for UHNW families during the Christmas and Summer periods through well-known agencies. Through them I have experience of both shared and sole charge of children aged 2-9, including twins. I have recent experience of taking children on public transport alone, cooking nutritious meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner, planning daytrips, accompanying families to second homes and of course engaging them in imaginative play and co-ordinating stimulating activities at home.
Before I became a nanny, I spent 3 years volunteering in a crèche with 2–3-year-olds and 1 year alongside this working as a tutor for Kumon with primary-school-aged children. I also have lots of informal experience babysitting and acting as a mother’s help for children as young as 4 weeks old.
Lastly, I hold a clean enhanced DBS, paediatric first aid qualification and I am fully vaccinated. I am British citizen and passport holder who is confident with long haul flights and open to travelling with families.
Most of all, I am reliable, flexible, fun and excited to get stuck into a household! I look forward to hearing from you!
