My name is Lisa Roberts Andrade and I have worked in childcare for over 20 years. I have been a nanny throughout my career and have also worked as maternity night nurse for 13 years, helping to get newborn babies and children with sleep issues into a good routine.
More recently, I owned and ran a my own childcare company in Tenerife, Spain providing British and qualified nannies to holidaymakers. It was the first British childcare company run on the island and I built it from strength to strength over six and a half years. Tenerife Childcare is still going strong under new ownership.
Originally form Harrow, Middlesex, I am 37 years of age. I knew from a very young age that I wanted to work with children. I followed my dream by studying child development high school then studied the year 2 NNEB Diploma (Nursery Nurse Education Board) course at Stanmore College in Middlesex, followed by a one year course CCE (Childcare in Education).
My certifications also include:
- Colic and Reflux Courses
- Breastfeeding Course
- I am also a qualified Childminder (Level 3)
