Introduction to families
I am a mature Nanny by profession and have worked for different families for the past 14 years. I love looking after children. I would like to help parents who are finding it difficult to spend more time with their children due to work commitments by caring for their children like my own. I will be happy to assist with light housework, shopping and house management.
I have extensive experience in childcaring, driving and I am well organised, reliable, trustworthy and very patient. I have certificates in Childminding, Au Pairing, Survival and CPR.

Sakile is a phenomenal carer who has loved our son as much as we do and has been gentle and caring always, from the day she sat down to do her interview, she has just shown him love. She sings to him and with him. She has a positive can-do attitude and is always thinking about what is best for our son. She loves to read with him, teach him things and go for walks with him. She is patient and understanding. As a new mom, I got support from Sakile emotionally and could lean on her when needed. She loves our pets and is comfortable with them. Additionally, she helps our son learn how to act around them and show them love. Sakile can drive which is an added bonus! We went on outings together when possible, including nurse visits for vaccines and this was a big help. She will always tell us if our son is off in any way and also shares moments we miss with us and milestones he is reaching so we can look out for them. She knows what he likes and dislikes and is a pro at distraction if necessary. Her knowledge around children really helps to ensure your child gets the best care and has learning opportunities. When it comes to house work, she doesn't need to be asked to do anything, she takes her own initiative. She is always on time and lets us know ahead of time if she will be late. She also has done a refresher CPR course so we know he is safe with her. You will not regret your child (ren) having Sakile helping to look after them!
