I have been living in the Greenwich/Stamford area since 1989 and I am very familiar with the area. I have worked as a nanny with children from 2 days old up until teenagers. I provide a stable nurturing environment encouraging development of age appropriate skills and vocabulary. I instill manners and encourage reading and music. I’m comfortable with pets and child related tasks in the household. I have recent top class references available. I have spent many years working with children from newborns to teenagers and have even worked with special needs children. I hold current infant and child CPR and first aid certificate. I am comfortable driving a large SVU, I’m a safe and competent driver. I enjoy cooking and I always make all my own baby food for the children in my care. I often do grocery shopping and errands for my employers. I’m capable of overseeing other Read more staff and supervising projects in the house where time allows. I’m comfortable with pets. I am very technically capable and able to maintain calendars, help with bill paying, oversee household maintenance and repairs. I have also worked for the family business of one of my former employers. My roles usually encompass tidying up after the children, children’s laundry, pet care, grocery shopping, meal prep, errands, picking out age appropriate activities and driving the children around town. Sometimes I also purchase clothes and shoes for the children in my care. When I lived in England, I was nanny to Sir Winston Churchill’s great granddaughter. I also did occasional babysitting for Anna Wintour who was a close personal friend of my employer. I hold both UK and USA passports. I hope to find a position with a family who can utilize my abilities and where it’s a great fit for all concerned. Thank you for taking the time to read my profile

I do not personally know Alison, however, she saw my ad on Sittercity and she chose to take the time to make a really worthy recommendation which was outside of the bound of duty. I cannot speak to her actual skills as a nanny; but the kindness speak volumes. Lindsey
