Amazing nanny available to start from December

Postby Deedarling » Thu Nov 07, 2019 7:32 pm

We are a family living near Wandsworth common. Our circumstances and needs have recently changed and we are devastated to be letting go of our brilliant nanny. We cannot recommend her enough and think any family would be incredibly lucky to have her. She has a degree in Psychology; nannying experience with two families; is musical, creative and energetic and just has the best attitude to everything! We really enjoy her company and our 2 year old daughter adores her. She has the perfect approach to managing a 2.8 year old girl - provides clear boundaries, but very kind! 

We are selfishly hoping to help her find another job in the area so we still get to see her and so our daughter can still have her as a babysitter! 

She is up for either full time or part-time and is very flexible. She is also very familiar with the area and various classes, swimming lessons etc. I have copied her CV below which will provide more details. She is happy to be contacted via mobile (07913 817978) at any time and we can be contacted directly for references (07542520428).
