Hi! I'm Olivia. I spent all of 2009 working with children ages 3-14 as a boarding mistress in the UK. I was also a family nanny for three and a half years during my time at university in Canberra (2010 - 2013), looking after four children, three boys and a girl, aged 8 months - 12 years (found through this website!). During this time I additionally tutored an 11 year old boy twice a week. I have since moved to Brisbane for my partner's army career and would relish the opportunity to work with kids again as I undertake further studies to become qualified to work in children's health care.
I am a happy, responsible and outgoing girl who takes initiative and absolutely adores children. I have endless energy for playtime and regularly organised special activities like treasure hunts and craft days for the children that I cared for. I thoroughly enjoy my work and would love the opportunity to meet you and your children.
I am primarily looking for a job in Brisbane (I am prepared to travel a reasonable distance from home) over the summer holidays or any casual evening/weekend babysitting. I have my drivers license and a new, very safe family car. I have experience driving with children and I am very flexible and am happy to take last minute calls!

Ginny has been assisting in caring for my 4.5 year old, 2 year old and newborn for the past few months. She has a lovely manner with them and they have responded well to her playing lots of imaginative games and doing art projects. We feel confident in leaving all three children in her care, including our newborn. She is friendly, always punctual, and shows initiative in finding things to do (such as dishes or tidying up) when there is a quiet moment. I highly recommend Ginny, she has been a great help to our family.Heidi (Middle Park, VIC) Read More
