SALIHA KHAN - Amsterdam
"The giving tree" was my favourite book growing up and now I know why. I have always had a passion for childcare and teaching, my expertise in early learning and child development has helped me progress in this field. I realised early on that I have the ability y to motivate young children and develop an engrossing learning environment. With an educational background in Social Sciences along with a Montessori and Kindergarten training. I feel I'm equipped with the right skills for the job. Having worked in this industry, in Amsterdam. I felt there was a severe lack of professionally trained child care providers. So when I met Rebecca, we immediately realized, that we share the same vision. Which is to ensure that all children have an equal opportunity to reach their full potential in a nurturing and loving environment. I find it is my responsibility to ensure that the family's specific needs are met, by providing a perfectly tailored and compatible match, each time.
ALLIE KOPPE- Rotterdam
With 11 years of professional experience, including nannying for five families and working in two Day Care facilities, I know what it takes to be an exceptional care giver. Because of my experience, I have a passion for child care and understand the importance of having positive relationships between nannies/babysitters and the families they become a part of. I want to ensure that your family finds the perfect person to care for your child. Knufflesitter’s unique process of screening and education helps us to give you just that. I am so excited to be a part of Knufflesitters because we recognize the importance of having trained professionals who put your child’s safety and well-being above all else.
SARAH COSTA - Eindhoven
It is a common saying that “It takes a village to raise a child” I have worked as a nanny for 10 years and it was during this time that I understood the importance of my role as a caregiver in supporting the development of the children under my care. I feel that it is important that child carers create an environment which is both stimulating and nurturing for the child. Knufflesitters shares the same vision which I have which is that children need to be cared for in a way which supports and stimulates their growth and development. I believe it is very important that caregivers are screened meticulously to ensure the safety of children, and therefore families can be rest assured knowing that their children are left in safe hands. A nanny should be an extension of the family and not a replacement therefore the importance of training in child development and attachment theory which our caregivers are rigorously put through allows Knufflesitters to be an asset to parents utilizing our services.
ANGELA MENKO- The Hague
I hold the vision that: “All children can learn....it is our responsibility to give them the tools they need to achieve greatness.". I have over 16 years experience within the childcare industry and I am also a mother myself, as well as an expat, and so I understand first-hand how difficult it can be to leave your children in the care of someone else. Knufflesitters understands this, and ensures that a child’s development and safety are top priority and this is at the heart of the company. I have worked as a teacher with pre-school children and special needs children such as Autism and ADHD, for several years now and I have always had a passion for child development. Thus, when faced with the opportunity to work alongside knufflesitters, I was delighted, as the company shares my values and philosophy in terms of how to work with children and to help them reach their full potential.
