In 2009 I attained a BA Honours Degree in Fashion Promotion and Imaging and decided that I would like to use my creative and communication skills in a rewarding role where I could care for children and support them in their learning and development.
In September 2010 I moved to Plymouth to become a live-in nanny to my closest friend's children. I began to care for one 18 month old and later cared for a new born sibling. In June 2014 I registered with Ofsted to become a childminder and it has been the best decision I have ever made.
I take the children in my care to different activities such as toddler groups, the park and "rhyme time" at Stoke Library. I offer arts and crafts, baking and even a bit of toddler yoga! Whatever they are into, sparks their interest and makes them happy. I have a separate playroom full of toys, which is also a great space to engage in quieter play and process after a mornings stimulating activity.
I thoroughly enjoy working in partnership with parents to care for their children and support their developing needs. I complete a photographic learning journeys for all of the children within my care.
I have nannied since September 2010 and registered with Ofsted to become a childminder in June 2014. I have cared for new born babies, toddlers and children up to the age of eight. I have some paediatric nursing experience and have worked in a support role with individuals with learning disabilities and have used Makaton.
I complete regular training through Plymouth City Council in the aim that I will do the best that I can for your child.
