Before taking up a teaching position I decided to take a break and applied for a nannying job. This was the best decision in my life as this was when I realised my passion was in working with under 5’s.
To provide a fun, nurturing and a developmental learning environment to support age appropriate milestones and make sure the children in my care develop to their full potential.
I also like to help children grow through play therefore they feel loved and cared for while they are in my care.
A child’s brain is malleable, so the quality of attention you offer it, forms the foundation for the rest of their lives after their brain is set. Therefore, offering a safe, nurturing and creative environment for the children in our society is key.
