Experience & Qualifications


Hi there, my name is Lauren and I am 29 years old. I have lived in the Lake District, Cumbria for the past seven years. Whilst living there I worked as a Special Educational Needs and Emotional Behavioural Teaching Assistant in a residential school for students aged 7 years to 16 years old. Previously I had loved my work at an Activity Centre, at a nursery, pre-school with younger children and as a Nanny during a Chamonix summer. In my spare time I thoroughly enjoyed taking advantage of all the Lakes had to offer, including scrambling in the mountains, sailing on the Lakes and biking on the trails.
My adventurous nature has now brought me to a Pit-Stop in France before heading over to Canada in the summer. Whilst in the Alps I have been learning to Ski, speak French and have eaten lots of delicious Alpine cuisine. I hope that my fun loving yet responsible character is exactly what you are looking for. I can’t wait to meet your family and make your holiday extra special.

"Lauren started work at Cedar House School in 2015 as member of the residential care staff. For the latter part of her time at school, she chose to become a teaching assistant.

Cedar House is a residential independent special school that caters for children with social, emotional and mental health needs. Lauren worked with the full age range (7 to 16 years) during her time with us. In both her roles Lauren supported children's emotional, as well as educational, development.

Lauren is an intelligent and enthusiastic professional who has excellent verbal and written communication skills. She was a reliable member of staff who put the children firmly at the forefront of her practice. Pupils naturally warmed to her personality and responded well to her firm but fair, consistent approach. Our pupils often display very challenging behaviour. Lauren managed such behaviour in a calm manner and was able to rebuild relationships positively after any incident. Pupils in her care were upset that she was leaving.

Lauren left Cedar House to pursue her life-time dream. Her colleagues were sad to see her go, as was I. If Lauren were to return to England and apply for a job, I would reemploy. I wish Lauren all the best for her future and believe that she will be an asset to anyone who employs her as a nanny.
