Eleanor grew up in Nottingham and moved to London in 2019 for her BA in Textile Design at Chelsea College of Art. She is currently in her second year of university and is excited to nanny alongside her studies. She is an artist and creative and grew up around children as her mother is a childminder. Eleanor has extensive experience working as a babysitter, youth group and art supervisor and childminder with children aged 6 months-11 years. Having grown up helping her mum look after children, she is very familiar with the after school routine and is confident about providing structure in the form of meals and snacks, homework help and organising activities.
Given her artistic background Eleanor loves knitting and painting and is very enthusiastic about implementing arts and crafts into her childcare. She also grew up playing the flute and can read music so is happy to help with music practise. Eleanor has a genuine love of conversing with children and nurturing and supporting their skills and interests. She places importance on ensuring a positive, engaging environment and we think she's going to be a brilliant After School Nanny!

Personal Statement

I want to work as an after-school nanny because I like looking after and spending time with children, I find their creativity and outlook on life incredibly enjoyable to be around and a welcome break from my University work. I have a good amount of experience that allows me to be confident when working with younger children.

Throughout my life I have been surrounded by people who care for and work with children, my father is a teacher, and my mother was a childminder for most of my youth. I got my first real experience looking after primary school children when I used to help out my mother after school every day looking after children and young babies, feeding them lunch and afternoon snacks. When I helped her look after children, I learnt how to entertain them along with mediate and deal with any arguments that broke out. My mother is now a Primary school Teacher and over the summer I went in multiple times to help organise and run activities for the school Art Week.

My experience with children was furthered when I was 14. I helped out in the 4-5-year-old group at my local church where I assisted in organising activities for snack time and play. When I turned 16, I started to babysit for families in the neighbourhood that I lived in and that was where I began to be competent at supervising and entertaining children without another adult present, I babysat for two years before entering University and it was a great way to gain a little extra money.

I would like to work for After School Nanny because it is a great way for me to work alongside my University studies, whilst doing a job that I enjoy and caring for children.
