Looking for: Part-time, Casual Babysitting

My name is Sophie Lavender. I am 25 years old and enjoy spending time with children. I have a Certificate 111 in Children's Services which i obtained through TAFE NSW. I have a gentle personality, which children seem to feel comfortable around. I am also very patient and caring, and find it easy to build a rapport with children of any age. Over the years, I have spent lots of time with young children through my work in childcare. I have worked with children with additional needs and have a basic knowledge of sign language which i use to interact with many children with autism. I also have years of experience working in the hospitality industry, particularly in kitchens, so I the required skills to prepare healthy meals.

When interacting with children, I prefer to focus on what interests them, while also sharing my own interests. My work ethic is very high and I take direction well. I am punctual, have high integrity and understand the importance of children in families' lives.
