Ad hoc, emergency childcare and school holiday childcare options
My experience covers work in nurseries and playgroups, both council run and private. As a nanny, also nanny share's and as a maternity nurse for newborn twins. On occasion I have independently taught the introduction to childcare course for a training company as well as provided independent childcare advice to parents and also advised them on techniques to manage challenging behaviour.
I have gained experience of working with children with varying degrees of special needs ranging from cerebral palsy to down’s syndrome and autism.
I am a very active, sociable, bubbly and down to earth person who loves to keep busy. I am always out and about with the children going to parks, woods, library’s, drop-in’s, music groups and encourage the children to eat and cook healthy nutritional meals and snacks.
I fully recognise and endorse the importance of each child’s home environment, family and culture as being the pivotal point of learning. I also believe that play is the most beneficial medium of learning for all children.
Through play children are able to gain skills which will be their building blocks for life in general. Skills such as communication, working with others and sharing, awareness of self, self esteem and confidence, a motivation to learn and awareness of others and the world around us.
