Note: Please bear in mind that this is a discussion board, not a place to advertise childcare vacancies or recruit childminders/nannies etc. We don't mind the odd mumsnet regular mentioning that they're looking for a job/mindee (although you're probably better off in MN Local) but repeated job "ads" and posts from nanny/babysitting agencies aren't fair to people who are paying for small business ads. Do feel free to report any you see. Thanks, MNHQ.

I am an Ofsted registered nanny with paediatric first aid to nursery standard, public liability insurance and training courses in all aspects of childcare including special needs. I also have an ICP qualification but most important of all I have 30 years experience; Which includes working with babies and children aged from newborn up to 13 years. I have experience of working with and supporting the parents of premature babies and I have worked with several sets of twins. many of my jobs have been long term and I still have good relationships with the long term families I have worked forsmile

I have recently been looking after an 8 month old girl and a 4 year old boy, a job that has come to an end because of a change in the employers circumstances.

I do not drive but have never found this a problem and the children in my care get to do lots of fun things and we have outings on the buses to places that are not in walking distance. I believe childhood should be a happy fulfilling time and try to provide the best possible care for my young charges. I encourage imaginationdragon and storytelling. I also seek out local playgroups and activities. Picnics and trips to the park are also on the agenda smile yet I also know how important quiet time is as well.

I have a gentle approach to babies and preschoolers while at the same time encouraging thought for others and good manners.I also get on well with older children.

I am reliable and prepared to be flexible but ideally would like to work upwards of 20 hours. I don't mind long days and am open to both full and part time, weekends and overnights

I would love to find a new job in the Farnham, Guildford or Alton areas of Surrey/Hants and I can provide a full work history and excellent references to future employers

My name is Roxanna. I am looking for a full time,live-out nanny position to start in December 2012 or January 2013. I have 6 yrs full time nanny experience in the UK with children aged between 8mths and 7yrs plus 3yrs voluntary experience in the EU. I am CRB checked, Ofsted registered ICP qualified and I am Early Years First Aid + Food & Hygiene trained.
Due to my interest and love of children, I decided to make a career in childcare and be a professional nanny, so I am planning on studying from next year for the Level 3 CYPW and I am looking for a family who doesn't mind chosing a nanny with experience and a genuine love for children but who doesn't have a full qualification yet.
I am fluent in English and Romanian and intermediate in Spanish, French and Italian. I can provide excellent references and I am available for interviews in the morning or any time in the weekend.
I have really good experience with babies and toddlers , it is amazing to watch them grow and I find very rewarding to see that they learn new things by the end of every day.
As a person I am very bubbly and positive.I have a good common sense, I am reliable , honest and organised.I enjoy taking children outdoors in parks and museums, to playgroups and playdates but when the weather doesnt allow that I enjoy painting and reading.I also have experience with weaning and potty training.
If you would like to know more information please do not hesitate to contact me.
Thank you,
