Children are, and have always been a future career ambition of mine. Making sure they are healthy, happy, and always have a smile on their faces is something that I have a huge passion for. With saying that, I am currently undertaking a bachelor of science at the ANU with majors in neuroscience & psychology (with topics emphasising on child health & development) in the future hope to undertake medicine and specialise in paediatrics.
I have over 6years experience in working with children from 4mths to 12years old, with over 22 families available as references.
In my volunteer position Paediatrics at the Canberra Hospital (PATCH) I am responsible for caring for children through a variety of ages and needs. This ranges from newborns to primary school children, and also special needs children. This has been one of the most amazing opportunities, & wonderfully rewarding.

I found your website very user friendly. It was wonderful that all of the postings were current and relevant and the guidleines that you give for finding someone were absolutely correct ( I emailed 10 and had about 50% response). In the end one of the girls who answered my advert I hired, and have found her to be fantastic, flexible and accommodating.Beth (Mont Albert, VIC) Read More
Kirsten has been my son's nanny for two years (from age one to three). She is an amazing nanny and has all the attributes and experience you could want in a carer for your child. She has childcare and first aid qualifications, experience in childcare centres and as nanny and is a parent and grandparent. She is naturally an extremely kind and caring person and to me that is the essential ingredient in someone to look after my son. She is affectionate and has lots of fun with our son. They play music, dance, paint, do crafts, read books (lots of books!), explore the park and play pretend. Kirsten is gentle but firm about routines and appropriate boundaries. She is energetic and proactive which is something the child might not notice, but the parents really appreciate!Kylie (Chatswood, NSW) Read More
