Charlie

Who is Charlotte?

Charlotte is a 24 year old creative, fun and friendly person who enjoys playing music, composing, cycling, meeting new people and exploring London. Raised in Somerset, she had a happy childhood with no TV and lots of outdoors activities including horse riding, hockey and netball. In her early teens she began to take singing seriously and was soon singing with the BBC Singers, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Joss Stone and James Browns Band. Since leaving Somerset in her late teens, she has studied at two of the worlds most prestigious Contemporary Music schools, Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts and The Academy of Contemporary Music. It was at ACM that she received the Outstanding Student Award, as well as a First Class BMus Honours Degree. She then moved to London in 2012 to further her music career and gain experience in teaching.

What is her childcare experience?

Charlotte has a wealth of childcare experience under her belt. In her late teens she began babysitting her neighbours 3 boys regularly. After her degree she became an before/after school Nanny for a 5 year old (incredibly energetic!) girl. Her main tasks were to take her to and from school, play with her, cook her healthy meals, bath her, read to her and tuck her into bed.

She was then offered a year long post as a Year 1 Teaching Assistant and she was soon selected to be trained as an RWI Tutor at the school, teaching children to read and write using phonics. As well as teaching a class of 30 children to read and write, she also acted as a 1:1 support for a child with Global Delay. Other daily tasks included looking after a severely autistic child for an hour a day, assisting the teacher during lessons, providing guidance and support to the lowest ability children in the class. On top of all of this, she also began a Year 1 choir which she taught once a week on her lunch break. The choir became so popular that all 90 children in the year wanted to join!

Charlotte has a full UK Drivers License, an up to date DBS Certificate and she is more than happy to do first aid training if requested.

Why choose her?

Not only does Charlotte have a wide range of childcare experience, she also has a natural flare with children due to being a big child at heart! Alongside this, she has a real passion for the arts so she is more than happy to teach your child new skills, be it playing an instrument, singing, acting, arts and crafts. Her teaching and nanny experience combined means she is very good under pressure and has all the skills necessary to keep your child happy, healthy and entertained.

Melissa, part time nanny

Who is Melissa?

My name is Melissa Clarke. I am a 32 year childcare assistant and Nanny of 5 years from California. I am a mature psychology and psychotherapy student as well as a part time lead performer and pianist in the band AAG [All American Girl]. I have been a musician since the age of 4 and have just released an album. I am studying to become music therapist later on in life. Dance is also a hobby of mine.

I absolutely love working with children as I have always enjoyed being a mentor, tutor and teaching dance and music classes to different schools around my local areas. My experience with working with children has helped me gain interest in child psychology and learning development.

What is her childcare experience?

Why Choose her?

Being a nanny has taught me to effectively budget my time and be great at multi-tasking. I believe children benefit greatly through creative activities and as I am a creative, I believe I create an enjoyable and nurturing working environment for any household. I believe it is important to find a balance between routine and play, and teaching this concept to children is something that can be done strategically by getting a feel for each child’s individual personality. I have a diploma as a psychotherapist and my years of study have taught me the value of good relational skills that will benefit both the child’s and parents needs.

Both my parents are from two very different cultures: England and Peru, so I feel lucky to have been brought up in a multi-cultural environment.

I enjoy being a nanny because I find the whole experience of working with various families rewarding as well as the flexibility it has offered me to be able to study part time.

Full time Nanny Required.

Janessa

Janessa, Part Time Nanny

 

Who is Janessa? 

Janessa is a caring and compassionate individual, whose calm and engaging approach to childcare has established many long-lasting relationships with both the children and the parents for whom she has worked.  Janessa is an OFSTED registered Nanny.

She started her career in childcare as an au pair whilst on her gap year, which enabled her to gain valuable experience and at the same time, discover new cultures and lifestyles. She then worked as a nanny alongside studying for her degree in English and French at the University of Warwick. After graduating with a 2:1 BA Hons in the summer of 2011, she has worked in a range of different households, in both part and full-time positions.

 

 What is her childcare experience? 

Janessa has experience as a nanny with newborns, up to the age of 7, as well as babysitting for older children. She is capable of caring for multiple children at once, including in nanny share positions. She is comfortable establishing and/or following a routine, as well as potty training, weaning and those terrible tantrums.

Janessa feels that being a nanny is one of the most important careers as they play such a vital role in a child’s life. Childhood shapes who we are as an adult, and Janessa believes that nurturing and encouraging a child’s independence and self-esteem through acting as a positive role model whilst parents are working is hugely important.

Janessa enjoys a busy lifestyle, often going to the theatre and cinema, visiting family and friends and (trying to!) swim daily. She is a lover of the outdoors, especially the mountains and has been lucky enough to spend two seasons in ski resorts. She has caught the travelling bug, exploring much of S. E. Asia, Africa and Europe, as well as hiking to Mount Everest base camp! Janessa enjoys a challenge, and feels that caring for children certainly poses its own, very different but rewarding challenges.

 

Why choose her? 

“I am captivated by the many spontaneous and entertaining things that children do and say. Helping a child develop, helping them through the ups and downs of growing up is the most rewarding career path I could have chosen, and I feel privileged to have found a career that makes me so happy.”
