Experience: 6 Years
North East Derbyshire
I arrived in London in 2008 to work for the a family as their live-in nanny. They have 2 children, one who was 3 years old when I moved with them, and the baby, who was born after I arrived. I was a mother's helper, as the mum was not working but there were plenty of occasions where I would be hands on with the both of them. I would spend a lot of time with the baby, playing with him, giving him the bottle or puréed food as he grew older, taking him out in the fresh air or for various activities, and putting him for the afternoon. In the evenings, I would play with the eldest boy. After supper, I helped give them a bath, and we shared duties with putting them to sleep.
From Sept. 2011, I started working as a live-out nanny for another family. They have 2 children, one was 6 years and the other was 4 years. In the morning, I took the young girl to preschool and her elder brother to school, and made them lunch to take. In the afternoon I took them to the park, did activities with them at home or in the garden, and took them to different activities.
I volunteer two days a week at preschool. I am supporting/ helping key workers on supervising and helping children in different activities like arts and craft, music, and cooking.
