Looking for: Part-time, Casual Babysitting
Hi Parents! I am a 29 year old mature and educated Australian citizen. Having chosen a carer change and returning to study at RMIT, I am seeking to combine my experience and love of caring for kids with a part time child care position. Located in Fitzroy North, I am looking for work in the surrounding suburbs. I have a current VIC drivers license and clean driving record. Although I do not have a car at the moment (preferring to cycle or use PT), I am looking to get my own car in the next few months. I've been with a family for over two years, working full time and now on a casual basis after returning to study. I work at a Creche at the Melbourne Convention Centre when various expo's are held in Melbourne. In addition, I have years of experience in my personal life caring for my own 7 nieces and nephews for longer periods at a time from the ages 1-7. As a carer I believe in positive parenting and positive reinforcement, role modelling the behavior I think is important in a child's development such as kind behavior, making healthy choices and good manners. I believe the role of the carer is to be an extension of the parent, being able to pick up the job where parent left off. But above all, making your child feel comfortable and safe at all times is my top priority. I like to do fun and interesting activities with children, rather than being at home all day in front of screens. Going to the park, going on a picnic, reading books at the library, arts and craft, playing music. I am also happy to help around the house with general cleaning, washing and preparing kids meals. I have a valid WWCC, children's first aid certificate, and police check. My rate is $28-30 depending on how many children.
