I've been a nanny for 9 years, and have an NVQ in Child Care and Education.
My name is Liliana. I am from Colombia, and I have been living in London for more than twenty years now. I have been working as a nanny professionally for over six years, and I have an NVQ in Child Care and Education, which I completed in 2011. I have done work experience in different nurseries and schools, working with many different children.
I chose to work as a nanny because I love to work with children, and I want to help them develop and grow. I feel that I am really suited for this work, as caring for children comes very naturally to me. The most important aspect for a nanny to have is to love working with children. A nanny must also be able to build a positive relationship with the children – for this, they must have the ability to care for children and identify their needs, be flexible, attentive, patient and caring.
I am a very patient individual, and always try to put myself at the children’s level, but always try to ensure that there is mutual respect between us. The children are the reason that I work as a nanny. I enjoy working with them, being able to see them grow and develop into young adults has always given me great satisfaction.
