Isobel ~ Melbourne

44 year old Female nanny

Hi parents!

I've been working as a nanny for the past three and a half years in Hobart and Melbourne, and currently work part-time for two Melbourne families. I also work part-time as a visual artist.

Other previous experience has been parenting my son (who's now at university) and working with children in After School Care at a Melbourne primary school (2008).

I appreciate the opportunity to assist with the developmental stages of children, particularly enjoying activities such as reading and talking together, art and craft. I also value excursions to Melbourne's great sites of interest (e.g. Museum, children's farm etc ) and getting outdoors to local parks/playgrounds generally, believing out-door play to be very important for social and motor-skills development. The sheer delight and wonder children express while exploring and learning about themselves and their environment is a real joy and great aspect to being a nanny!

I am competent to cook for the children/family in my care. I'm also happy (with notice) to do occasional evenings or sleepovers for families I work with.
Rate of pay per hour $23 - $25.

Thanks, Isobel

We interviewed Gemma recently. We found her to be a lovely person who had our son completely engaged and enamoured. Unfortunately our requirements did not match, but we hope she finds a lovely family to become a part of.
