Hello my names Fran, I specialise in caring for little ones under two years. About Me: I work full time as a private nanny and babysitter for infants and babies. I love what I do! This is my passion and it brings me so much joy to provide high-quality care to little ones and their families. I have three years of work experience in early childcare education, where I was a teacher in an under 2’s room. I’ve always had a preference to work one-on-one with little ones in this age group. This lead me to leave the ECE space and become a nanny with the vision of creating safe and peaceful environments for little ones to freely explore and learn – and I have done just this and I absolutely love it! I have cared for infants as young as 2 months old – I feel confident working with such a young age group. It has always been my opinion that it is essential to have extensive knowledge around the age group I am caring for. There is an incredible amount of development and learning that happens in the first three years of a child’s life. Therefore I am always reading and talking with experienced teachers in the felid to expand my knowledge of infants and babies. Before teaching I studied the first year of a Bachelor of Nursing and I also hold a comprehensive level 2 first aid certificate as well as a child first-aid certificate. The health and safety of children has always been a top priority of mine. So you can always feel confident your little one is in save hands. My Approach: I will always do what works best for families by aligning my nannying style to your needs and values. I am an excellent communicator, approachable, flexible, and punctual. I enjoy getting to know families, building trust and knowing that I am supporting their needs. I work with the vision of creating a calm environment for young infants and babies to feel safe, able to express their emotions and needs and know they will always be heard and comforted. To give them calmness and quiet to relax and rest in, but to also provide them with a stimulating and exciting environment to learn in. When I am caring for little ones I am calm, caring and patient. I will always follow your normal routine as closely as I can. It is important that wee ones feel as comfortable and relaxed as they can be when I am caring for them so that they feel safe to explore and learn. Please feel free to send me a message, we could grab a coffee and talk about exactly what you're looking for. You can ask me anything you need to know regarding my approach and how I work. I can even meet your little one and we can get to know each other a bit. I can provide excellent references. *** Update: I'm currently in a full-time role, caring for a 5-month-old. However, please feel free to send me a message if you are looking for a future nanny for your little one. On average I work with a single family for around 1-2 years. So booking me in advance, before you or your partner go back to work can eliminate some of the stress of finding child care for your little one. ***
I have worked in early childhood for 4 years and have cared for children as young as three months.
