My name is Martina and I am currently looking for a new role as a live out nanny. At the moment, I work in central London, taking care of two girls aged 4 and 1,5, full time. I have been with this family for almost 4 years but due to their younger daughter starting a nursery soon, my working hours would need to change and unfortunately they would not suit me anymore.
I have an experience with children from newborn to the age of 13 from my permanent roles but also as an emergency nanny for several London based agencies. I am a qualified maternity practitioner, have a DBS check and first aid training along with other childcare related qualifications. I also have a child on my own, who is 5 and is in reception. My partner picks him up from school so I am flexible with a finish time at my job.
I consider myself as a very positive, energetic and organised person with a passion in what I do and a very appreciating attitude towards life and people.
I am very interested in psychology and I currently study children psychology from home. I believe in a mutual respect between an adult and a child and I take my job as a childcare provider very seriously as I believe that early childhood is the most important part of our lives. Anything and anyone that surrounds our children, influences their personality and therefore their future. That's why I enjoy my job so much, because I get to positively influence our children's personalities and really have an impact on their lives.
As a nanny I am very loving, fun and fair. I believe that while giving children some safe and age appropriate freedom and choice, it is also important to give them our guidance and healthy boundaries. I encourage children in independence, kindness, appreciation and age appropriate responsibility while simply letting them be children and behave their age. For me, balance is important in every aspect.
I hope this gives you a little idea about me and if you like what you've just read, just PM me
I will look forward to hearing from you.
