Fully vaccinated Mrs Doubfire!
I have a genuine love of children and over 20 year’s experience (including special needs) and as a nanny in Saudi Arabia . I've also spent 1.5 year`s in Chile, volunteering in a childrens' orphanage. Fun, active, kind, reliable and well organised. When I'm looking after children, I like to engage/participant with them rather than looking at my phone (I'm not on social media!). A believer in 'old school' play/education, ‘adventure’, laughter and cuddles (for toddlers). I love having simple fun with children ie. playground/park (nature walks), puzzles, reading, imaginary games, colouring in, lego, 'rhyme time/singing', 'rock hopping' etc.
‘Glowing’ references available from local families.

I'm a mature aged Mum, Widow, dog owner and a Career Nanny. As a mother of a son who has special needs I have had years of hands on experience with behavioural, developmental, speech, routine, fine and gross motor skills. My car is fitted with child restraint and booster seats. Over the last several years as a Nanny I have cared for children from 2 week old premmie twins to 15 years of age with twins, triplets, sole child or multiple children. The care has either been in the children/s home including overnight or at an allocated venue depending on the family's situation. I thoroughly enjoy interacting and caring for children of all ages. My experience includes working with the parent/s on the child's routine, any strategies and dietary requirements.
Due to the lockdowns and the unknown, my availability has opened up as my families work commitments have also been affected.
