Nanny Fizz's Story add remove

My Career

I’m a Norland-trained nanny and a mum of a 10-month-old! Becoming a mum has completely changed my outlook on childcare and the work-life balance and I have a newfound respect for parents! I am lucky to have found a lovely family, who allow me to bring my baby along. I spent a long time working in London and abroad but being closer to home is my main focus now I’m a mummy!

My passion

I love working with children. Seeing the children having fun and enjoying the activities you’ve planned, or the trips you’ve taken them on, is the best feeling ever.

 

It’s so rewarding to see how well you can bond over the time you spend working with a child – and being able to be their best friend! The job satisfaction is amazing.

When I’m off ‘Nanny Duty’!

When I’m off nanny duty, mum duty continues! We like to spend time as a family, going swimming or for walks along the beach. We often go for brunch as a treat for us all and when granny steps in to give us a baby-free night, the best thing is to go for dinner, then back home for a movie and a full night’s sleep!

My Career

I am an award-winning international travel nanny, sleep consultant, nanny advocate and coach with 20+ years of experience and an MA in Childhood Studies and Early Years. I’m currently working with several families providing travel, childcare and sleep services worldwide. I am the founder of BNT nannies which is a social events community for nannies and childcare professionals and we host monthly events. I also host NannyCON-the only childcare and wellness conference in the world catered to childcare professionals.

 

Before nannying, I was a freelance Dance and Drama teacher working across primary and secondary schools, after school clubs, stage shows and competitions. I also worked in HR, the NHS and the Arts Council of England.

 

I’ve worked exclusively with high profile, celebrity UHNW families from all different cultures throughout the world including Cyprus, Sweden, Thailand, Switzerland, Tanzania, Dubai, Oman, UK, USA, Nigeria, Spain, Greece, Netherlands, France, Belgium, Italy and Tagalog and Mandarin over the last few years.

My passion

I am passionate about supporting parents and helping to raise kind, independent and confident children.  I love being a part of children’s personal and emotional well-being, creating healthy bonds and relationships as well as being a part of their life milestones.

 

Combining my performing arts background with my childcare expertise, I deliver a 5 star childcare experience which I like to call The Nanny Sharz Experience!

When I’m off ‘Nanny Duty’!

I like to travel, read, spend time with my loved ones, visit historical landmarks, museums/exhibitions and I often go to comedy shows because I love to laugh. I also collect art, hike, dance and listen to music! I like to challenge myself so I’m currently learning Spanish and hope to learn French, Italian, Arabic and Mandarin over the new few years!

My Career

I have been a nanny to the same family for over 5 years for their three wonderful children in Buckinghamshire. I previously worked in a Nursery setting for over 3 years as a Deputy Manager and Room Leader for ages 3 months up to 4 years. I obtained a Level 3 NVQ qualification in Early Years and Childcare, as well as gaining a vast amount of knowledge and experience within the industry.

 

Prior to working in Childcare I obtained a Bsc Hons degree in Hospitality and Events Management at Plymouth University. Once I had graduated after 3 years, I decided against a career in my degree subject, as I realised I was far better suited to working with children. It’s one of the best decisions I made!

 

During Lockdown I made a TikTok page called ‘Jo the Nanny’ and it somehow went viral over recent years. I now have over 120,000 followers! With the parents support & permission I create videos revolving around my life as a Nanny. Whether that be ‘a day in the life’ video, a Q&A video, a recipe/activity video, a fun haul or dancing trend with the children! This has soon become my little side hobby and adds to the day to day excitement of being a nanny!

 

‘Choose a job you love and you’ll never have to work a day in your life!’

My passion

My aim and passion is to encourage children to smile, learn and develop through play, creative & stimulating activities, fun days out and high quality care and attention. I find nannying incredibly rewarding as I’m helping to raise these children and watch them flourish! Everyday is new, exciting and different!

When I’m off ‘Nanny Duty’!

My partner and I bought our very first home together in 2023, so DIY, gardening and decorating has taken over my life at the moment! But I absolutely love it and have learnt so much & take great pride in our achievements!

 

When I’m not painting or planting, I enjoy spending time with my friends & family, playing badminton, cooking delicious meals, travelling, trying out new make-up & skincare products and of course making TikToks!

My Career

After almost a decade working in a nursery, I felt it was time for a change. I trialled a 3 month stint of temporary nannying and absolutely loved it. For the last year I’ve been a freelance and ad hoc manny full time.

My Passion

I’m passionate about being a positive role model, helping my charges develop interests and experiencing how unique each individual child is. I love seeing children thrive. It’s the best thing ever!

 

There’s also a great freedom element when you are a nanny. Being able to take children out to explore new activities, ideas and adventures. Following their lead, seeing their minds at work, watching them become curious about the world around them.

When I’m off ‘Nanny Duty’!

I’m a dad so when I’m home at the weekends I love to spend time with my daughter. I also enjoy football – both watching and having a kick about with friends.

My Career

I have been a qualified nanny for 11 years, after graduating from The Chiltern Nanny College back in 2012. I’ve worked as a nanny for several families, in London, Australia, Cambridge, Bedfordshire and now Stamford, Lincolnshire. I currently nanny for a one year old little girl and have the pleasure of having her fur brother join us too, he’s a Sheepadoodle!

My Passion

I suppose I was one of the ‘lucky ones’ when it came to choosing a career as I always knew from a very young age that I wanted to work with children. What I love about this job is that children are all so different, and the variety makes being a nanny so interesting – it constantly keeps me on my toes!

 

I thrive off of making learning fun and different as I couldn’t bare ‘boring homework’ when I was at school.

When I’m off ‘Nanny Duty’!

When I’m not in ‘nanny mode’ most of my adult life is spent on my home renovation project. It’s a barn conversion, which currently involves a lot of bonfires, furniture buying, and box flattening! If I’m not at home I’m either following my partner around all the UK race tracks or having dinner parties with my nearest and dearest.

My Career

I grew up in Brighton with three sisters. I was adopted from Vietnam so caring for someone who’s not your own blood has always been second nature to me. My sister is a Qualified Norlander so I’ve known that being a Norland nanny has been my dream since I was 14 years old, and I now get to do my dream working in New York!

My Passion

I have such a big passion to guide and teach children that they can be whoever they want to be and any of their dreams can come true with the right support. I love that everyday is a different day and even if you plan something for children it might take a whole new direction. There’s just endless possibilities with children and it’s the most rewarding job ever to know that you’ve made a child happy, safe and loved.

When I’m off ‘Nanny Duty’!

When I’m off duty I love socialising with my friends! My big hobbies are cooking, skateboarding and music but in general I just love an adventure – whether it’s camping on a mountain or cooking by a river.
