My name is Carina, I am 22 years old (23 in June) and I am from Denmark.
I came to London in July 2013 where I started working as an au pair in East Dulwich. I took care of two very energetic and happy young boys age 3 and 5 years old. I finished this job beginning of May 2014. I have thoroughly enjoyed this experience but I am now looking for a nanny job as I would like to be more independent here in London and live on my own.
I am a very reliable, caring and hard-working person, who is not afraid of responsibility or challenges. I am always told that I am easy going, happy and fun to be around. Furthermore I am very patient and enjoy being creative, especially with children, I also have very good communications skills, which I think is essential when working with children. I have a fun, loving, enthusiastic yet firm approach to my nannying.
In my free time I enjoy exploring new places, reading, swimming, cooking, baking and being with my friends.
My level of English is very good, both speaking and writing (I got a 7 overall in the IELTS exam, which I took in London, February 2013).
After finishing my 10th grade in 2009 I went to be an au pair in London, I lived with a Danish family and took care of their 9 months old son in Wimbledon. I stayed with the family for 10 months and was very happy there.
I then went back to Denmark and took the Childcare Assistant Education, where I finished in November 2012. The education included 3 internships where I was in two different kindergartens with children age 3-6 years old and one nursery with children age 0-3 years old. I was also chosen to go abroad for an internship and went to Edinburgh and worked in a nursery school for 5 weeks.
I think I would be the perfect nanny for your family, I love playing with children, whether its inside or outside, I love arranging different kind of activities for them and I am a very caring, warm hearted and happy girl! My household and cooking skills are excellent, since I lived on my own in Denmark, so I am used to it and enjoy doing it.
I would be happy to send you my CV and references as well.
I look forward to hearing from you.
