Savernake Nannies are proud to have had a finalist in the Nursery World awards for two consecutive years. The Nursery World awards were held virtually in 2020 but back with a bang for 2021. Lots of glitz and glamour. It looked amazing!
We would like to congratulate Georgia Harris on winning “ Nanny of the Year 2021”
This award was sponsored by BAPN and Nanny Tax
We recently had a chat with Kelly, a Savernake Nanny and one of this year’s finalists.
What did it mean to you being a finalist in the Nursery World Nanny of the year award?
Well, to be nominated was just great, BUT then to find out I was a finalist was just amazing and such achievement!!
Tell us why you love your role as a nanny?
I love to be able to work with different families and gain new experiences with each one. I enjoy being part of families helping little ones grow and learn. It’s just the best.
What age ranges have you looked after -
Since being a nanny, I have mainly looked after 3 - 12year olds. Before nannying I worked in a nursery where I gained my qualifications and experience. Whilst there I mainly looked after the under 2’s but as in any nursery I was able to gain experience in all age groups and also after school clubs.
Have you heard of the EYFS and how do you implement it into your everyday life as a nanny?
Yes, I have heard of the EYFS and use it in many ways throughout the day. My charges love a walk and play in the park so we’re always exploring and talking about all the things around us - birds, vehicles, letters on signposts, things they can hear etc. We do lots of puzzles, counting, and dancing. They also love helping with housework - hanging up washing and sweeping! The EYFS is virtually in everything we do together.
How did Covid affect your role as a nanny?
As my current family are key workers I still continued to work. We had to adapt certain things like upping our hand washing, cleanliness and where we went and who we saw etc. We made sure we kept our distance outside our homes to limit any contact with others. My charges have been absolute stars with all the changes that have gone on throughout Covid and lockdown and I really admire them for this.
