Looking for: Part-time, Casual Babysitting

Hi families, Welcome to my profile ☺ I am a young at heart, mature woman with a beautiful just turned 26 year old of my own who lives independently. I have a positive, upbeat & engaging personality. I was a School Captain & have the ability to get along with all types of people. I have done some voluntary work for Single Family camps creating programs for children at these camps & I was responsible for keeping babies, toddlers & even teens occupied while giving Mum or Dad some much needed respite. This was a fantastic experience & I resided at these 5 day camps solely to help out with the other camp leaders. I have also worked as a Swimming Teacher with the under 5's which I found very rewarding. In my last 10 years working as a Nanny I have cared for twins, multiple children (up to 8 at one time in total) & children with disabilities, asthma, eczema & other challenging health conditions. I'm experienced with new born babies up to teens. I am trustworthy & reliable. I am always punctual & haven’t been late for any job. I'm a very good communicator. I’m hard-working, diligent, energetic & enthusiastic and a whole lot of fun! I have trained in nursing and paramedic studies. I have had extensive experience with babies and children dating back to the age of 9 when I babysat the neighbours children (including a couple of newborns!).... in total 15 !! I have always been mature & responsible beyond my years. I have been surrounded by children my whole life including my 4 younger siblings and 30 1st cousins! I was a mother figure to my 4 younger siblings as my mother was working full-time as a Nursing Sister & my father was away from home a lot in his job as an International Airline Captain. I have had a lot of responsibility from a very young age. I am Aunty to 12 nieces & nephews so I love the interaction with young children. I enjoy the spontaneous and honest interaction that children provide and I find it immensely rewarding knowing that I am able to influence and help a child to learn and grow confidently. I'm fair with a gentle approach& can be firm while teaching boundaries. I believe all children require stability and need to know they are loved and lovable as a basic right. I never cease to be amazed at the lessons that children can teach us adults! I am inspired by the enthusiasm that children have when learning about the world around them. I tend to establish a good rapport with the young ones I care for which I find very rewarding. Children are so precious & truly a blessing to be cherished. Importantly, I am pro-active with a 'can do' attitude & I have a keen eye for detail so nothing goes unnoticed! I am very safety-conscious so your childs welfare is of utmost importance to me at all times. I can be flexible with time & I am more than happy to work with you to suit you and your childrens ongoing needs. Nb. I have had my car licence for 40 years & I'm a very careful driver with a full licence & faultless record. No accidents. I look forward to meeting you and your precious children. *My rate is dependent on time of day & children needing care. As per regulations my rate starts at $28 per hour & I prefer to work a minimum of 2 and a half to 3 hours. Thank you.* Thank you for reading & have a lovely day! Warmly, Fionna
