About G10 Months:

G10 Months is a vocal, energetic and inquisitive little girl who has a rare disorder called (CDKL5 disorder), Epilepsy and Global Development Delay. She requires lots of sensory and creative stimulation/play which makes this an exciting and rewarding role for someone with a background in Special Educational Needs and Disabilities who has previous child care experience, caring for infants under 2 years of age. 

G10 Months is on a strict Keto diet in order to help with her Epilepsy, so it is vital the selected Sennie understands the importance of the structure and schedule for her diet and can take on learning about her dietary requirements. The Ketogenic diet has been shown to improve the regularity and severity of seizures and so the family are really keen to explore and implement this diet in order to track their little girls progress and changes to her health.

About the role:

We are looking for a patient, engaging and experienced early years Sennie, who is happy to spend lots of time singing, playing with and encouraging G10 Months in her development whilst also working with her, through different therapies and approaches, to reach her personal milestones.

The family are looking for someone who can help them and their little girl to: Improve the current structure and difficulties around meal times (due to the new Keto diet in place) and focusing on the development of her fine and gross motor skills (particularly with relation to grip and using her hands). Training will be provided for the personal care needs of G10 Months however any prior epilepsy experience or a background in nursing/pediatrics would be a real benefit and is highly desirable to the family. 

Key duties:

  • Sole charge care for G10 months; nap times, bath times, developmental activities, playing, changing and toileting etc.
  • Administering seizure medication and monitoring any seizures following her specific care plan (training will be provided) 
  • Cooking for and feeding G10 months, ensuring a strict Keto diet and making all keto meals and drinks for the week including snacks
  • Continuing with/implementing exercises as set by her Occupational Therapist and Physiotherapist 
  • Creating and implementing daily opportunities/activities for sensory and creative play 
  • Taking for classes and play dates if safe (post pandemic etc.)
  • Keeping play area clean (vacuuming and cleaning), laundry of G10’s clothes, bedding etc (all cleaning associated with G10 Month’s activities including eating area and bottles)

Due to Covid-19 and G10 Months high-risk health conditions, it is vital to the  family their Sennie be able to travel to work either on foot, cycling or by car. 

Whilst this is not a housekeeping role, all Sennies are expected to tidy up after themselves and keep on top of basic nursery duties.The Sennie selected will be able to follow and support therapies and interventions determined by the family and professionals. A genuine interest in working with SEN children is a must.
