There’s a great sense of joy and fulfilment that comes out of caring for children.  I take a great deal of pride in my work with children, providing nurturing care, fun and learning.  One of the best things about being a nanny is the one-to-one support you are offering a family.  You have a special place in each family, slotting in seamlessly and developing a good relationship with children and parents alike.

Over the years I have worked with a variety of families.  I know all of the children’s names that I have nannied for.  I have kept in touch with a lot of my families.  It’s always lovely to hear how my previous charges are getting on in life, how their stories are unfolding.

I have been working with children for more than 10 years now, in nurseries, children’s centres and as a nanny.  Throughout those years I have built on my passion for early childhood and studied to postgraduate level in this area.  I now specialise as a nanny in the care and early years education of twins.  

I love working with twins.  My dissertation for my MA in Early Childhood involved twins, with a particular emphasis on exploring ways for caregivers to support speech and language development in twins (they are often purported to be behind in their speech development compared to their singleton counterparts).  Twins are great.  They can be challenging due to the demand on time and joint attention they require.  But they are also so rewarding to work with.  Caring for twins should never be compared to caring for children close in age, it quite simply isn’t the same.  These are two children with the same developmental needs, but also with individual needs.  

I love what I do.  It’s who I am.
