Looking for: Full-time, Part-time, Casual Babysitting, Au Pair
Dearest parents and guardians,
My name is Georja. I am a young, composed, friendly and fun-loving kiwi who just moved over from Wellington, New Zealand to start a new chapter of my life. I am independent and creative and love all things art, music and acting related. I have been passionate about kids ever since I was one myself. From insisting treat my baby doll as a real baby and taking her everywhere to begging my Mum for a baby sibling 24/7. Growing up with a big extended family with many young cousins, nieces and nephews we all learned how to help out with kids at a young age. This gave me extensive childcare experience as I was so in love with them all and would do anything I could to help out. I had my first summer nannying job in 2016 with two children ages 7 and 10. I have been working more professionally babysitting and nannying on and off ever since. I have cared for most children under 10 when nannying but have done casual work for families with more pre-teen/ teenage aged kids too. Before moving to Melbourne I looked after an 8 month and 3-year old Part-Time and a 5 and 7-year-old Part-Time.
In this screen focused generation, I believe it is so important to nurture imagination, creative play, and outdoor activities so I do my best to limit excessive screen time while children are in my care. I'm all about preserving childhood and being a kid as fully as you can for as long as you can. I love arranging a variety of fun interactive things to do with the kids, such as art projects, colouring, make-believe play, puzzles, baking, picnics, outings to places like the park and the library, and reading aloud and lots of other recreational activities. I am also more than happy to help with cooking, cleaning and other domestic tasks.
Every child is unique and responds differently and I do my best to be adaptable and fun and cater as well as I can to that specific child's needs. Most importantly, however, I care about keeping your child safe and happy and embracing your parenting style to the best of my ability.
