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.
I have recently returned to Australia after a two year adventure in the United Kingdom during which I worked as a nanny. I have been doing paid childcare (as a nanny) for six years now. I have worked with children between the ages of 4 months and 8 years and almost entirely caring for boys.
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 and have been working and travelling since. I first helped a mother with her 5mth old twin boys for six months. I then moved to London and cared for a three year old boy for a lovely family. They also had a second son while I was working with them. When my year with them was up I found another London position for six months with a 10mth old boy which is actually a housekeeper/nanny position. Pretty much all my jobs have included light housekeeping which I'm happy to do. I also did a bit of weekend work with the other London family. My experience in the UK was wonderful and I've enjoyed my adventures with work and my own travelling.
I enjoy being creative and crafty as well as exploring and taking kids on adventures. I also enjoy board games, computer games, walks, and social sport. 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, I am most comfortable with 1-5 year olds.
I am calm and easy-going and like to play. I am also honest and reliable. I don't fuss a lot and flexible within reason. I am a patient person and try to be understanding. I hope to be able to broaden my art skills with some evening classes.
I am looking for a live-in position in Sydney preferably working 30-40hrs per week with weekends off. My hourly rate is BEFORE live-in deductions which would be worked out according to the accommodation and extras I would receive. I am keen to begin work late May/early June.

Recently joined Find a Babysitter & am very happy I did. Found a wonderful babysitter within 24 hours of posting my ad. Was pleasantly surprised that we found the right sitter so quickly as the hours we require care are very early in the morning. We actually had 3 positive replies within the first 24 hours. Even better, our babysitters sister has now joined your great site & is our back up babysitter. They are both reliable, friendly & fun. Thanks so much for making it so easy to find a babysitter. Now both my husband & I can start work early & for us that means more time together as a family of an evening :-)Jess (Melbourne, VIC) Read More
