Hi! My name is Samantha and I am currently studying a Bachelor of Social Work. I absolutely love spending time with children, engaging with them in a variety of activities and making them laugh and smile as much as they do me :). I am enthusiastic, friendly and very reliable. I have experience working with and caring for children, on and off for the past 10 years. For the past 10 months in Melbourne I have been looking after an 8-month old boy (current nanny job!), and prior to that an 18-month old and a 10-month old. With all the children I adopted the parents’ regular routine, which included twice daily outings/walks (visits to parks, the swimming pool, children's play centres and the music man in Prahran market were the usual!) and play-time, including reading stories, singing nursery rhymes and playing games.
My previous experience back in the UK includes working in a nursery school with children ages 0-5 years for 2 years, volunteering as a scout leader for children aged 10-14 years for three years, running a summer creche for children ages 5-17 over two summers, tutoring English and Maths to under 13s and casual baby-sitting jobs for friends.
I have both my Working With Children and Police Checks.
Please feel free to contact me if you would like to know anything further. I look forward to hearing from you :)

I have passed your webite on to all the girls at work. I met two potential babysitters yesterday and was very pleased with both of them. Your site is easy to use, informative and just plain wonderful in my books. Well done.Nici (Frankston, VIC) Read More
Due to timing we were sadly unable to retain Giorgia. Giorgia is very organised in terms of documents & references (first aid & police checks are current). She comes across as enthusiastic, relaxed & committed, with an honest & open communication style. We were very impressedMercedes (Toorak, VIC) Read More
