Looking for: Part-time, Casual Babysitting
I have been a loyal babysitter and nanny for 8 years now, during the nannying career I have also completed a double degree in Nutrition and Psychology; plus qualifications in fitness and business, and set to begin my Masters of Primary and Early Childhood Education in 2020. I absolutely love spending time with the children and see them grow. Nothing can describe how much they have taught me. I am very able and confident in my ability to always take the best care while developing a special bond with each child. I am both first aid and CPR certified I have a current WWCC A very long list of amazing references I have my Bronze Medallion Lifesaving Certificate and years of pool and surf lifesaving experience and years of competitive swimming experience. I have my driver's license and own car (with ISOFIX) I have dynamic experience in child care and have been incredibly privileged to work with newborns, day-old bubbas! and each age up to 17! My education in Psychology has provided me with a deep theoretical understanding of all stages of growth and development. In my younger years, I also gained extensive experience in hospitality and management where I learned so many skills and experiences relevant and transferable to child care, my chosen path, including time management, organization, hygiene, and food prep. I am familiar with every aspect of child care from playing games to changing nappies and putting little ones down for naps; to homework and extra learning activities; as well as sleep routines, weaning and potty training then later on, with the bigger kids, taxiing to sports and extracurricular activities to cooking and preparing meals, bath, and bedtime routines. I have done full weekends, family vacations, overnight stays, late nights, early mornings after school activities run, I've scored for sports games, and obviously all too familiar with school pick-ups and drop-offs! I am always happy to run errands, take children to appointments, and housekeeping, grocery shopping, tutoring, dog walking, pet/house-sitting, etc. Anywhere I can help, I am always happy to! In my experience, I have been warmly welcomed into the hearts, homes, and lives of each family. I am a very friendly, energetic, positive, fun, loving, and responsible girl who truly enjoys spending time and looking after kids and seeks building a strong relationship with the entire family.
