Isobel ~ Melbourne

44 year old Female nanny

Hi parents!

I've been working as a nanny for the past four years and I'm currently part-time with two Melbourne families. I also work part-time as a visual artist.

Previous experience with children has been parenting my son (who's now an adult) and working with children in After School Care at a Melbourne primary school (2008). I have also worked in residential support for young adults with intellectual/physical disabilities.

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 - $25 per hour.

Thanks, Isobel
