My children are full grown now. As their stay-at-home Mom, we created a wonderful daily routine with a balance of structured and unstructured activities anchored by healthy sleeping and eating habits. I have used this basic framework in my role as nanny for 5 London families over the past 7 years. I love to see children learn and grow while doing a variety of age appropriate indoor and outdoor activities. There is always a special place in our routine for reading and learning to get along. I am an energetic, caring, education focused caregiver with five basic rules: Safety first, don't damage property, be kind, have fun, and clean up your messes. I have worked for some amazing families, and am delighted to keep in touch with them now that their children no longer need a nanny. As a Mom, I read numerous parenting books, with my favourites being "Raise Your Kids without Raising Your Voice" and "Hold on to Your Kids". I also home-schooled my children for a year using the Waldorf School curriculum. What a fun time and great learning experience! I have an English degree from Western with courses in psychology and child development. I have been an ESL instructor and mental health support worker, where I created a self-esteem workshop. My son and I have had a interesting journey discovering and addressing food sensitivities. I enjoy cooking, baking, gardening and hiking. It would be my pleasure meeting you and your lovely family. It's important for me to understand what's important to your family and how I can help provide a safe and nurturing environment for your children.
In addition to raising my own 2 children, I have 7+ years experience working as a nanny for families with newborns and children up to 10 years old. I have worked for some amazing families, and am delighted to keep in touch with them now that their children no longer need a nanny. Additional Experiences/Qualifications: B.A. English, Business diploma, additional courses in child development, mental health, self-esteem, homeschooling, parenting.
