Vacancy from September for one full/part time baby/child
My name is Aleksandra and I am 37 years old. almost three years ago my partner and I welcome a new addition in our family, our little boy Alexander, who will be starting nursery school in September.
We live in a spacious two bedroom flat in Battersea, and love spending time together enjoying our little boy and parenthood.
Over the past 13 years I have been working as a nanny, maternity nurse, night nanny and maternity consulting. Since January 2014 I have been working as a Childminder.
My aim to provide a fun, happy and secure environment in which each child can develop at his/her own pace. I would love to give each child the very best nursery education. A child should be happy, confident, challenged and able to reach their potential with us academically, socially and emotionally.
Using a combination of Montessori and standard teaching methods set within the framework of the early years foundation stage guidelines, I will provide a happy stimulating education based on child centred creativity especially in the areas of art and craft, and music and movements.
I provide a safe and happy environment where learning is a joyful and rewarding experience. I strongly believe that encouragement and praise both in work and play, are the crucial foundations for building self-esteem and confidence.
My aim is to help each child to extend their social and communicative skills by sharing and caring for others, coping with emotions and expressing their own opinions whilst having the confidence to broaden their inquisitiveness and at the same time, develop an awareness of the world around them.
Our days are well structured full of fun activities and outgoings to enrich the child’s knowledge and experiences. We regularly visit playgroups, children’s centres and parks and playgrounds as well as having a fun days out at the Battersea zoo. London aquarium, museums and city farm. When at home we love singing and dancing, doing art and reading books.
Naps are always taken in their travel cots with clean beading washed every week.
The children are also enjoying 3 nutritious meals I cook for them, meals with plenty of variety and lots of fruit and vegetable.
Parents are informed of our daily activities and meals with diary they take home every night.
In addition to my childcare experience and excellent references I hold the following qualifications:
Valid Paediatric First Aid Course
Child Protection Certificate
Early Years Practitioner Certificate
Foundation degree in Early Years
BA in Childhood and youth studies
