Hello, my name is Clare. I am originally from England and now settled in Australia. I embody a positive can-do attitude, alongside an independent, reliable and well-organised nature. I am also flexible and easy-going, with a good understanding of how each household has its own unique requirements regarding the quest for the perfect Nanny. I am comfortable working under a family’s specific set of needs, as well as confident in working efficiently under pressure. First and foremost, I believe an honest and open dialog is intrinsic to a happy and healthy household and is also the key to a harmonious and balanced Nanny Family relationship.
In 2010 I graduated from University with a Fine Art Photography Degree. I went on to travel Europe before deciding to stay and make a life in Switzerland for myself. I lived in Zurich for one year AuPairing and had the full responsibility of three children under eight years old as full-time occupation. I left Switzerland in January 2012 to travel South America for 8 months. I enjoy experiencing new places and meeting people that are local to these places. I am very active and love making the most of the outdoors, which I have found to be a very positive and healthy way to connect with the children entrusted in my care.! I returned to Switzerland in October 2012 where I was employed as a full-time time Nanny for a total of eight months.
In August 2013 I moved to Sydney and found full-time employment as a Childcare Assistant at Seaforth Childcare Centre until the end of December 2013. In January 2014 I was employed for a few months as an after-school Nanny for a 6-year-old girl, helping with duties such as homework and extracurricular activities. I then travelled extensively around Australia and also South-East Asia where I also completed my training as a Yoga Educator. I returned to Australia in early 2018 and spent 7 months volunteering at a number of different Yoga and Eco communities before I settled as a live-in Nanny for a family in Bondi, Sydney. In 2019 I relocated to Northern NSW, and soon began working for a Yoga retreat and school which is where and how I have spent the past 2.5 years. My studies and learning in Yoga and many other natural health and wellness modalities continue to this day.
Currently, I am seeking nanny or babysitting opportunities in the Tweed/Byron shire. I find working with children highly rewarding and enjoy childcare positions that allow me to contribute creatively.
If you think we might be a good match, please feel free to get in touch and I'll be happy to answer any questions you might have. I look forward to hearing from you :)
