My main experience with children has been looking after my many nieces and nephews and my daughter who is now 10 years old. I’ve worked for years as a Manager and being a mum I’ve realised quickly I use a lot of professional skills, e.g, time-management and organisational skills to help create memorable and fun days.

I adapt happily depending on the age of children, with the overall well-being of the child being considered.
