Looking for: Part-time
I am looking for a live-out position accessible from the north Sydney area preferably working 1-2 full weekdays per week beginning in May.
I am calm and easy-going and like to explore. I am also honest and reliable. I don't fuss a lot and flexible within reason. I am a patient person and intrigued with trying to understand how different people function and what's going on behind the behaviour. I hope to be able to broaden my art skills in my time off.
I am a person who enjoys seeing children discover and learn things while enjoying life. It is my privilege to assist parents in helping to build these little human beings. Parenting is no small task!
I completed Certificate III in Children's Services in 2006 and followed this with a year working as an aupair in the USA to three energetic boys. Whilst home in Australia for three years I did some part time nanny work caring for children between the ages of 10mths and 4yrs for a number of families. In April 2011 I moved to the United Kingdom with a two year visa where I worked mainly with a family with a 3yo boy. I also worked two short term contract positions either side of this family. One with 5mth old twins and the other a 10mth old. Back home in Australia again, I moved to Sydney and for the past two years have worked for a variety of families with children 10mths to 5yrs as they had need.
I enjoy being creative and crafty as well as exploring and taking kids on adventures. I also enjoy board games, puzzles, stories, walks, exploring and trying new things and good long chats with friends. I like to allow children to be children while guiding them to grow healthily and confidently and wisely. While I have experience and am capable of caring for children from 5mths old to 8 years, the majority of my experience has been with 1-5 year olds.
General: 36 year old, female carer
Education: Course Complete - Certificate III in Children's Services at Bendigo Regional Institute of Tafe
Other Skills: I love craft and do a variety myself. I enjoy sharing this with children and letting them explore and discover. I also enjoy baking with children and just baking for some yummy treats in general.
Residency status: Permanent
