As a ten year old if she couldn't be found at home. She would always be found at a neighbour’s house helping out with the young children or bringing the washing in off the line to help a new mum. She was born and bred in the Waikato, New Zealand as the go to girl for babysitting, then nannying. Her interest in travel and seeing what life had to offer outside her small hometown is what saw her board a plane to London in 1995. She left NZ with £200 in her pocket, some excellent references, and an attitude of "I'll land on my feet". Gail Aspland-Robinson (Childhood Nannies, London) softened that landing and Jayne worked with Gail for almost five years, both through her agency and for her personally looking after her three children. Jayne has often been referred to as Nanny 911, Super Nanny, or The Baby Whisperer - but she prefers Baby Listener. As her reputation grew, she was head hunted by many families, including a stint with an actress and more recently, a supermodel. However, the pull of New Zealand, her family and a desire to create a business working with Kiwi families meant a return home in 2010. Jayne has a holistic approach to baby care which has grown from years of listening, and responding to, the individual needs of the infants and children in her care. She encourages an instinctive, gentle and flexible routine that works for the whole family. She works with the baby's natural rhythm to establish patterns that have proven to assure that babies sleep through the night from a young age.
