About this child:
Lily (nearly 4) is an adorable and sweet little girl who loves music and dancing, going to the park, playing imaginative games - playing picnics is her absolute favourite now. She is a ball of energy and likes to run around and play football. Lily has Down’s syndrome, and as a result her speech is delayed, as well as having low muscle tone and dysphagia.

Tasks after nursery will include taking her to the park, playdates, or other activities Lily will enjoy. At home, you’ll prepare her meals and undertake general nanny duties. You will have the opportunity to incorporate Lily’s Speech and Language and Occupational Therapy exercises into her daily routine to aid her ingoing development in a fun way. The annual salary will be paid in equal monthly instalments with any overtime paid monthly.
