    A wonderful Nanny who is relocating to Inverness from London. She has over 10 years of experience and has excellent longevity in her previous positions. She is also capable of taking on household PA duties and management if required by the family. She has a lovely personality and would easily fit in with any family. She always encourages outdoor play with the children in her care and likes to teach them to be curious about things and to ask questions. If she doesn’t know the answer then she will encourage the child to work it out, whether that be a trip to the library, doing an experiment etc. She also likes to instill independence in the children she has cared for and she feels that her job is to work as part of a collaborative with the parents to ensure that they are happy with how she is helping to raise the children. She doesn’t like to say no to children so would rather nip potential tantrums etc. in the bud before they develop into something worse. She is a very good cook and happy to prepare healthy and nutritious meals for the children. This Nanny also prides herself on her organizational skills and can turn her hand to anything.
