I am a Childcare Practitioner & Photographer for the respective subsections of Treasure the Moments.
I also have a zero hour contract with the NHS working within nursing teams as an Associate Practitioner. This works well as the demand is high at the moment and I use it to fill any gaps in my working week. Treasure the Moments always comes first and I am able to pick and choose my NHS shifts.
So choosing me you don’t just get a previously graded good by Ofsted Childcare Practitioner…. You also get a healthcare professional and a Published Photographer!
To me, having someone look after your children isn’t simply being in the house while parents are out. It’s about providing childcare! Which is all about trust, safety and sticking to the family’s routine and rules.
Children tend to warm to me instantly as I have worked with them in one way or another for over 15 years.
I have worked in maternity in hospitals as well as paediatric wards.
Being an ofsted registered childcare provider was really fun and challenging but when my own child came along I didn’t renew my registration. I have worked with children of all ages but the bulk of my experience is with newborns to school aged year 2.
So yeah, I have a lot of experience, Not including my own child who is now almost 7 years old!! I chose to rework my career choice and combined the two things I love! Photography and working with children so now I do both.
Instead of providing childcare at my own premises like I did previously I now work where the parents need me on a adhoc arrangement around when I am not doing my photography commitments.
I still work the occasional shift in the NHS to keep things current.
I live with my wife and two small dogs near to Castlepoint.
I have my own transport and clean driving licence.
- Doula / Birthing Partner / Maternity
- Sleep Consultant / training
- Behaviour Training/adjustment
I’m all about the outdoors! There are learning opportunities everywhere and I use these to nourish child development.
I feel it is important to constantly provide environments where children can thrive and exceed all their milestones.
I have experience with children of all ages and references can by provided from past customers.
I am an Associate Practitioner on a zero hour contract with the NHS.
I have worked on:
- Accident & Emergency
- Maternity Department
- Paediatrics Wards
- And various adult wards.
I am also a Photographer.
Parents often comment that they knew they’d receive photos, but didn’t realise they would be getting free professional standard photographs alongside their child attending!
I hold a full and enhanced DBS clearance which is subscribed with the update service.
