Isobel ~ Melbourne

45 year old Female nanny

Hi parents!

I've been working as a nanny for five years and I'm currently part-time with one Melbourne family. I also work as a visual artist.

I have cared for children between the ages of seven months up to six years, preferring to be in longer term roles where possible.

Additional experience with children is being a parent, and working in After School Care (2008/2009). 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 value excursions to Melbourne's great sites of interest (Museum, Botanical Gardens, children's farm etc) and just getting outdoors to local playgrounds! I believe outdoor play with or alongside other children to be very important for social and motor-skills development. The sheer delight and wonder children express while exploring their environment and learning about themselves is a real joy and great aspect to being a nanny!

As one of my nanny roles has recently finished, I am now looking for another family to work with part-time - one to two days per week.

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.


Looking for: Casual Evening Babysitting, Casual Weekend Babysitting, Part-time Daytime Work

Education Status: Course Complete - Bachelor of Art (Fine Art) at RMIT University

Other Skills: I have particular interest in art and craft activities. I love reading. I value my health and place great importance on regular exercise - biking and yoga practice. I enjoy cooking and eating! In respect to children's entertainment and households: backyard play & lego construction are favourites. Making an impromptu cubby house or cardboard boat or car - has also been deployed in the past to great delight!

Residency status: Permanent

Thank you so much for the service you provide - I have found a wonderful nanny. I found the process very convenient and non-intrusive. I loved the fact I could decide along the way who I would like to talk to further and accept to interview. Thank you!

A beautiful young lady. Quick reply, very punctual and very attentive to our eight month old daughter. Have no hesitation in recommending Amy. Update (31.07.13) we still use Amy. Scarlette loves catching up with Amy. She even suggests that we go out so Amy can come over and babysit.
