I have been working with children for over 7 years now, I have my diploma and a partial museum studies degree. However I am now looking working full time in the CBD as my course was cancelled and will be picking up study by correspondance in the new year.
I have worked as a team leader in a privately owned Pre school but found I couldn't work in an environment where I didn't agree with or trust the actions of others. I feel children benefit greater from personal interaction and I can provide an educational care experience.
I am currently working as the Receptionist for Forbes Chambers on Elizabeth Street full time and am looking for some evening and weekend work.
I am a lot of fun, I love nature and everything in our environments, both natural and man made. I would love to guide children into primary school with a sound understanding of the world they are living in.
I am able to provide you with a journal/summary if requested of your child's developmental progression and milestone achievements. Just as something extra you will be able to use as a tool to connect to their lives away from yourself. I feel this is an important part of caring for a child and working with a family. I want families to know their child/children are in capable and caring hands.
Looking for: Casual Evening Babysitting, Casual Weekend Babysitting, Part-time Afterschool Care, Full-time Afterschool Care, Overnight Stays
Education Status: Currently Studying - HSC, Diploma of Children's Services (completed) Bach Museum Studies (Deferred) - Have changed to Event Management/Bach of Commerce in Tourism Management in 2012/2013 at Pymble Ladies' College, Crows Nest TAFE, Macquarie University
Other Skills: Dancing, particularly Irish, Tap and 'Contemporary'. Drawing, photography and I have a fair amount of experience working with children who require additional care. Gardening and a basic interest in horticulture! I am living on property currently and am able to fortunately experience nature in all it's glory (big spiders) ;) I will be moving into the inner city (Centennial Park, Surry Hills, Paddington area) within the month, we are just waiting on approval. First Aid Certificate License - no car currently but I would consider looking into this sometime in the near future. Police Check
Languages: A little French :)
Residency status: Permanent

I have used Find A Babysitter on two occasions when returning to work after maternity leave. The first time was to find a nanny for our then 18 month old girl and then further down the track, when I was returning to work after having our second child and my girls were 4 and 1. Each time we found fantastic, reliable, loving (but firm) nannies that became part of our family for the time that they were with us. Our current nanny is due to have her first child in December, so I will subscribe again shortly and start my search again. I have recommended Find A Babysitter to many work colleagues and friends over the past 4 years.Michelle (Cheltenham, VIC) Read More
