  About Me
 
Dear Parent(s) I am a professionally trained mature British nanny with an NNEB from the UK an ECE from Canada, and an education degree from the UK I have over 25 years teaching and care giving experience. I am also an excellent housekeeper. My highest commitment is to valuing "integrity and trust "

I am looking for a new family to join for September 32-37 hours per week preferably in the Sooke, West Shore, Bear Mountain, or View Royal Esquimalt area but cannot come to you if I would have to be in the Colwood crawl I am sorry

I have been a Nanny in Victoria for many years. I have many truly glowing references, my current pediatric emergency first aid certificate, and a current full clear criminal records check. I am also trained in Infant care

I am very loving, and respectful, have a warm open personality and am very easy to talk to

My commitment to children is that their authenticity as individuals must always be fostered, nurtured and respected, whether they are tiny new borns preschoolers or young teens.. I believe children must feel validated and that is the key core value of the care I provide.

I hope to find a non-smoking family that have the same values as I do in bringing up children which are key in finding a good fit for your family also Qualifications are very important, but finding the perfect Nanny who just feels " right" is just as important This is how I feel and what I look for in a new family also

Communication with parents is a key aspect for me as I know all parents want to know what kind of day their child/ children had. I will never mind how many times you call to see how things are going. A gazillion is never too many

I am a mature person with a lifelong love and commitment to the children in my care I have a silly sense of British humor. I love all animals, the outdoors, music, nature walks ect. I am very creative, nurturing, patient and very flexible. I provide all kinds of activities from music, dancing to baking and making forts and enriched / creative play time for tiny ones I prepare healthy food with a focus on fruits and veggies and don't believe in using television to "entertain children.

I am more than happy to offer light housekeeping and pet care too, if you need that. I am an great housekeeper and time manager and always tidy and clean up as I go through my day

My goal is simple and that is that you as a ( parent) or parents can leave your child/children in my care and know intuitively they will have fun and be kept safe, in your absence. The right fit is very important to me as I am sure it is for you, so please ask any questions you might have no matter what they are Thank you for considering me as your Nanny. Any kind and number of pets are more than welcome.

As an ex teacher with an education degree from the UK I always welcome any opportunity to help anyone in your family with homework, if needed

I believe in showing children and young people ways to be compassionate, gentle and kind.

In my personal life I am fit and energetic I swim, do Pilates and run

Who knows, perhaps you will be my new family and I your Nanny/ housekeeper, so I am looking forward so much to hearing from you.

Very kind regards

Sarah-Jane W NNEB (UK) ECE (Canada) B. Ed(UK)
