After-school nanny required in Romford (Term-time only) from September : Romford, Essex

We are a friendly family with a 6 year-old daughter and an (almost!) 4 year-old son. We live in Romford, just off the main road (behind the Town Hall). We are looking for an enthusiastic after-school nanny who has experience of looking after young children and could work 3pm-6pm Monday to Friday, TERM-TIME only. You would need to pick up our two children from school at 3 o’clock. Once home, you would be expected to give them a snack and supervise their homework.You would also need to give them a bath and put them in their pyjamas. You need to be committed to their education and have good literacy skills in order to help them with their homework – this includes a good command of spoken and written English. They love playing together and get on well with each other. Whilst we encourage them to be independent through ‘free play’, you should also be able to plan for a rota of afternoon activities, such as baking, messy play, arts and craft or going to the park/library. Our children are loving, fun and well-behaved. They respond well to a clear routine and firm boundaries. You must be committed to providing our children with the highest level of care, and have high expectations with regards to their well-being and behaviour. A foreign language would be an asset, as both of our children are bilingual (English/French), and we would love them to be in contact with other cultures and languages. This is not however necessary. We would prefer it if you had your own car to pick up the children from school. First-aid training and Ofsted registration/CRB check essential. Non-smoker only. Our preferred start date would be September 2013 but can be negotiable. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. We look forward to meeting our new nanny! Alexandra
