Hello and Welcome to Nanny Life!
I am an educator, trained art teacher, artist, nanny and mum. I've had the pleasure of working with children and their families for the last 20 years.
As an educator, I believe it's important to nurture our child's interests by planning, inspiring and educational activities for them daily. Together with my art training and teaching experiences, I have many skills and insights which have both complemented and proven valuable in my work as a nanny.
WE LOVE to maximise our mornings getting outdoors and burning up some of that endless energy that children have at the start of every new day!
In the afternoon after our sleep/rest time WE LOVE to enjoy messy play or craft activity to wind down our day. An afternoon at home baking/cooking, reading stories together and tapping into our creativity.
This year I have been using Pinterest to create two boards of kids art and sensory/messy play activities. This has been an awesome resource in planning my afternoon activities with the kids. It's also a great way to share these ideas with the families I work for too.
Check out my two Pinterest boards-
To be a nanny is a gift and I am grateful to all my families who have opened their homes and entrusted me to care for their precious little ones.
Thanks for your time and I look forward to meeting your family!
