I\'m currently a qualified level 3 nursery nurse and have recently just left Great Ormond Street staff nursery, where I worked for 3 and a half years. I have worked with all ages from 3 months to 5 years. I also have been a private nanny since leaving Great Ormond Street. I also have recently completed an online TEFL course. I\'m energetic friendly and warm. I think being a nanny in Canada would be a great opportunity to further my experience and interest in childcare and child development. I\'m a confident nursery nurse who is emotionally mature and possess high energy levels and an ability to develop close relationships with both children and families. I\'m keen to increase my work experience and develop my abilities. I believe the child is always paramount and this shows in the way I work. The child always comes first to ensure full development in accordance with the EYFS. I\'m imaginative and confident with constructive play and age appropriate activities. I\'m a driver with a full clean U.K licence. I\'m proactive, very creative and have fantastic ideas to keep children occupied. I also hold an up to date First Aid and BLS certificate. I\'m also a keen voluntary worker. When in Bolivia I helped in an orphanage. I also helped out a few days in the favelas in Brazil. When in Central and South America I stayed with under privileged families in their homes which was such a rewarding experience. For the last two years I have also worked as a general volunteer at the crisis at Christmas campaign for the homeless people in London. In my last nursery I was in charge of a healthy eating project and a sports day. It\'s important that children are active and healthy. I have a place to stay in Canada so I won\'t need to live in. I\'m flexible with working hours. I do smoke occasionally, however will only do so in my own time. I\'m an easy going people person. I am passionate about travelling and interested in new cultures. Hope to hear from you soon. Sophie. Im currently a qualified Level 3 nursery nurse who worked for Great Ormond Street staff nursery, where I was working for over 3years. I have worked with all ages from 3months to 5years. I have the ability to work in accordance with the EYFS and ensure the child always comes first to ensure full development. On a weekly basis, my team and I plan age appropriate activities to keep children stimulated ensuring there is enough resources and choice for them to choose from. Although we plan activities for the children, child led activities where the children pick what they want to do, is part of the way we planned. On national sports week last year I used my high energy levels to organise a sports day with the pre-school children which was a great success. I also believe its important to promote healthy eating, getting the kids familiar with different fruits and vegetables. Positive relationships are very important for a childs development therefore having good relationships with parents and carers is vital so you can learn about the child. Through various types of communication, I liaise with the parents and carers at drop offs and using nursery to home diarys which helps to ensure that the child is always paramount. My work have sent me on numerous amounts of training days which helps to keep my ideas and the way I work fresh, exciting and up to date with the EYFS and Ofstead guidelines. Since leaving Great Ormond Street, I have been a nanny whilst in the UK. This was a great experience for me to work on my own initiative with the skills I learnt working in the nursery.
