From a very young age I have always enjoyed playing with and caring for children and by the time I was a teenager, I knew that I wanted to pursue a career in childcare. I have always enjoyed regular baby sitting for family, friends and for some of the children I have looked after within previous employment, which still continues.
I am bubbly and outgoing with bags of energy, very friendly and enjoy meeting new people. I always have a smile on my face, especially around children, and it is a passion and also extremely rewarding to be part of, and to watch each child’s development as they grow.
I have cooked basis meals for the children in my care and have knowledge of the nutritious content in food and the importance this has on child’s development. When cooking, I have used and am familiar with books such Annabel Karmel and Gina Ford’s guide to healthy food that can introduced to children are each stage of there growing months.
I am creative, proactive and enjoy all aspects of childcare, from taking care of the child’s needs, to cooking and cleaning and organizing my day.
I think that children should have structure and routine to their day, clear boundaries and to be taught the difference between right and wrong. I also add an element of fun and freedom of choice for the children to gain independence, self esteem and confidence.
I encourage children to learn through play but I also organize activities to aid all areas of their development, and am familiar with, and use the ‘Early Years Foundation Stage' Framework EYFS.
The thing I enjoy most about nannying is building a bond with both the child and the family and working in partnership with them to aid the children's' development and to watch them grow
