Full time nanny

I have always had a passion for working with children. When I enrolled at Strode College at 16 years old I began working voluntarily in local Nurseries around my college hours to help with my studies. At college I completed AS Level passes in Psychology, Biology, Critical Thinking and ICT. I went on to complete a Level 3 CACHE National Diploma in Childcare and Education.

I have always enjoyed working with children and known that this would be a career I would want to pursue, so during my time at Strode College I additionally completed a working with others qualification and completed Peer Mediation training to give myself the extra skills and experience to broaden my knowledge.

I have worked in a wide variety of Childcare based jobs since college, been Ofsted Registered and have had experience in Schools, Nurseries and private homes.

In 2009 I used my qualifications to work with children abroad spending 7 months in Crete, Greece working with Thomson Holidays in a Nursery and Playhouse at a 5 star hotel. I became the Nursery Nurse Room Leader whilst in Crete training. This job required me to manage, motivate and be part of a team, to act as an appropriate role model to both the children and staff, to provide rules and boundaries, to record observations and develop appropriate relationships with families.
Following this, I went to Tenerife with Thomson in 2010 for 9 months & assisted in the opening of a brand new Nursery and Playhouse at a 5 star plus hotel as Childcare Supervisor. This provided me with a much more challenging leadership role and a wider variety of tasks. This allowed me to recognise any specific training and development within my team and assess and provide feedback on their delivery of activities and sessions within the childcare setting. Also to organise rota's, be part of shift patterns and to support colleagues to the best of my ability.
