Nanny to 3 children, aged 21 months, 4 and 6. Over this 2.5 year period I developed my knowledge and skill set. Starting this role whilst mum was pregnant meant getting the older kids ready to welcome their new sibling and make it a lovely and exciting time for them also. Supporting the family as a whole in any way they needed in the upcoming days and to the birth and days following, involving sole care of older siblings whilst mum and baby were in hospital. Taking care of the newborn, included general care (bathing, nappy changing, dressing and sleeping arrangements), helping siblings to develop a bond with the baby; and keeping a detailed log to help parents track their baby’s routine, feeding times, sleeping patterns etc. Other skills during my time with this family involved breastfeeding support until the baby's first birthday, weaning, sleep support, sole charge of all 3, potty training.
Temporary nanny position for a newborn, 3 year old and 5 year old whilst their mum was unwell only out of hospital. This involved supporting the whole family bringing a newborn to the family home, and supporting mum to breastfeed and looking after baby whilst assisting mum to get back to full health and taking sole charge of the older siblings.
Temp nanny for an 18 month old carrying out daily routine, preparing meals, taking her to local activities and helping with basic household duties.
My second season in the 3 Valleys I worked for a nanny company which catered for the whole resort working with different ages ranging from 3months to 12years. I also worked with some returning families from my previous season upholding positive professional relationships and feedback each week.

I have had the opportunity to travel with families whilst on their holidays. It is a job in which flexibility and reliability are key. I have completed a number of different roles ranging from one week to four month periods including new born babies to children aged 8 years old. These roles involved working very closing with families as the arrangements were all live in, some which also included a lot of travelling with the families. Blending into the family environments whilst remaining professional was a skill that I have thoroughly developed during this time.
Nanny for a chalet company in the French Alps. This included caring for children aged 6 months to 10 years with mostly having children of aged 3 and under, including a large percentage being under the age of 18 months, over the course of the season. Each week I met and cared for a new family, this enhanced my adaptability and kept me on my toes. I constructed food plans and activity plans every week. This role gave me responsibility for the children’s well being in which I fully embraced my caregiver role. Everyday I upheld a structured environment while staying active and keeping our time together fun and positive.
