My name is Laura and I am a 28 year old nanny looking to join a great family for either part time or full time work. I have just arrived in London on a 2 year working visa.
Music is my passion and I have come over here to explore the music scene, I am a singer/song writer, I play the keyboard and love performing live gigs.
For the past two years I have been living in Melbourne where I was immersed in the music scene while working full time for Fairfax Media. Previously to that I was working as a nanny the two children in Auckland, New Zealand.
I believe that music is a great tool for learning with children and I try and incorporate it into a childs daily routine - from singing action songs, to using singing to calm an upset child, and even using as music as a distraction (eg: some children don't like having their faces wiped after meals so I sing a little "wash your face" song which really helps!).
I believe in keeping a familiar routine with children, especially babies and toddlers, as this ensures a sense of expectation and helps a child to feel secure in their environment and therefore thrive! I am a very calm and kind person, and children really respond well to my positive and friendly nature.
I am looking to start working ASAP and I am also keen for any babysitting or even temporary work if you need help over the school holidays etc. Please drop me an email and I look forward to meeting you!
Hope to hear from you soon
