Hi there, I'm Yaisha! I am 24 years old, recently married, and live in the Northern Rivers area.
I am a very gentle, reliable, fun, and creative person!
I have plenty of experience with children, including 6 + years of odd job babysitting and 4 years of long-term babysitting with a family of 3 beautiful children. My job with this family consisted of playing games, going for walks, reading, bathing, dressing, cooking dinner, cleaning, and bedtime.
I also worked in a family daycare for 3 years, in which I looked after children aged 6 months-5 years. My job at this daycare consisted of caring for children, preparing meals and feeding, teaching and craft time, playing, house cleaning, and building relationships.
I have a deep desire to celebrate the passions and dreams your kids may have and encourage a holistic approach to learning and developing skills. I am great at listening to instructions, quick to learn, and enthusiastic about focusing/participating in any interests or hobbies your children might be apart of.
I am more than happy to help with any household duties/cleaning, I have my own car for transport and would be happy to partake in any driving needs to be done. (I do have a First aid certificate - CPR & Anaphylaxis and PAID WWCC)
