Hello there, I'm Keith. :-)
I have a Cert III qualification in Childcare, and I have worked in Outside School Hours Care for over fifteen years, performing virtually ever task one could imagine. I have been an assistant throughout that time, but have regularly stood in for Co-ordinators if they have been on holiday, got sick, gone on holiday and then got sick, got pregnant, got fired, etc. I have also done three years in daycare, largely in Kindergarten, where I was an assistant, and performed both assistant and teacher role when we had no teacher for a period of time. I enjoy sports (particularly cricket) and playing board games, as well as music, but I can appreciate virtually any activity that a child might engage in, even if I don't understand it. I am also fine with pets, particularly dogs, a few of which I have owned over many years (currently the owner of a very nervous, formally-abused whippet).
I have current First Aid training in HLTAID011 Provide First Aid, including Anaphylaxis, and with current CPR. In addition, during my time in daycare, I worked with a four year old girl in Kindergarten who had Type 1 Diabetes (leading to Hypoglycemia), and am familiar with the monitoring of the condition. I am also fully vaccinated against COVID (with double booster).
I have a current Blue Card, as well as references from parents whose children I have worked with over a twenty-plus year period.
