I'm 28, and an Ofsted registered male nanny with eight years of full-time childcare experience.
I started working in the childcare industry as an outdoor education instructor in January 2015. I've spent hundreds of hours inspiring children through nature and the world around us. I hold qualifications in sports coaching, english teaching and understanding autism.
I now typically work as a temporary male nanny in a number of different ways. From working as a holiday nanny and proxy parenting to supporting children who are struggling with their behaviour or going through a difficult period of time.
Why am I a male nanny?
While working as an outdoor education instructor I could see how well children developed in my care over a week. I understood my value as a role model and I thought I could have more of an impact in a household environment. I wanted to see how much of a difference I could make over months or years rather than just a couple of days.
It's been six years since I decided to work as a male nanny and I've had the privilege to work with a number of amazing families in countries all around the world. The children I look after understand that I hold high expectations for them. And in return, I provide them with an environment where they can feel safe, happy and challenged.
