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 been in Sydney for one year on a couple of short term contracts with children 5yo and under. Before that I took 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 eight 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, 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.
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 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 looking for a live-out position accessible from the north Sydney area preferably working 30-40hrs per week with weekends off.
