Experience: 5 Years
I have had the great pleasure of being a nanny to this family caring for two girls aged 4 and 6 for the past 14 months. My role involved wrap around school care and full day care for the girls. I organised and planned each day’s activities around each child to incorporate fun in learning, building and using their interests. I always made times to engage with them on an individual basis to build positive relationships. I acted as a playmate caregiver and tutor. We enjoyed baking, gardening, swimming, art and crafts, walks, bike rides, farm visits, board games, reading stories, dancing and more. I was responsible for transporting them to school, libraries, and extra-curricular activities. During school holidays I would engage both children in day trips to museums, farms, parks, special events at national trust parks and other outings. I took the girls to play dates with their school peers and hairdressing appointments. I was responsible for many household duties whilst the girls were at school, such as washing, cooking, cleaning, ironing and tidying toys/sorting etc. I sometimes went food shopping with the girls which we made a fun activity.
