The ideal candidate will have at least 5 years’ of childcare experience with children of this age (particularly babies and toddlers) and be looking for a role of this nature for the long-term.  You should have a great sense of fun, whilst also maintaining strong boundaries, and be very hands on, playing with the children and engaging them.  You should also have a very good understanding of safety, particularly taking into account that there are three very young children. 

The nanny should also be physically able to manage the demands of three young children.  A non-smoker is required and you should have an excellent record of sickness and punctuality.  You should have a DBS certificate (ideally on the update service), paediatric first aid qualification.  Ofsted registration would be a bonus.  You should also have excellent, checkable references.  The family does not need a driver.
