I'm a mum of an adult son who lives away from me and is self sufficient. As a relaxed, confident, mature, calm, trustworthy with excellent communications to chatting to a new born when changing nappies and clothes to explaining why teddy's loved so much to throwing balls at hoops or cycling in the park, down the beach, in the garden or playing cards, legos and a champ at video games! Being able to explain the rationale is critical to a 4 year old boy why snails leave their beautiful trails.... I've worked in child care centres on the Mornington Peninsula, Drouin, Malvern, Melbourne CBD, for various companies, for families as Au Pair, Live in Nanny, Day Nanny closer to home, assisted but not done their homework, encouraged their creative outlets and run, jogged, cycled or swum with most age groups and nationalities. Been a Housekeeper, caring for children's laundry, bedrooms and bathrooms, prepared meals, take the dog for a walk, groom cat or guinea pig and got eggs from their chooks. I've fed horses and other animals including an enormous pig and attended with children at libraries, theatres, events and birthday parties. Even assisted primary school children from pre-preps to Grade 5 with Naplan testing through School of the Air. I will talk out homework but not do it for the children as they learn new concepts to think through the problems to solve. I like having fun too - face painting, art, book diaries, gardening, reading, writing, native trees.... All diets, age groups and nationalities. Hiking, bushwalking, swimming, snorkel, fishing etc.
