  • Tracey M - 46 year old Female   Last logged on 20-Mar-2018
    Hello parents! I am a seeking a position within a family that has the possibility of becoming a long term position. I would ideally love work in a sole carer position with a baby or siblings within the birth to five years age group. I myself have two adult daughters who live out of home and are busy travelling the world when they are not at uni. I have a reliable car and am comfortable driving with children to activities and appointments. I am just as happy catching the bus or train if this is preferred. I have 27 years of extensive experience across all ages and stages of childcare and have worked in many different types of services including family day care, long day care and nannying. I have high level understanding of the fundamentals of the early years development process and the importance of providing an emergent play based curriculum embracing the National Curriculum Framework, Early Learning Years Framework and the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines. I also adore the Reggio and Montessori pedagogies and love including aspects from these theories into my work with babies. I have a deep and long standing passion for early childhood and am wanting to secure a position that allows me to transfer these skills to a home based nanny role. It is important to me to work with a family that upholds an ethos that aligns with my own core values of respect for self and others, fairness and equity regardless of age, gender, ability, religion or culture and a commitment to embracing change and innovation to ensure growth of knowledge I am keen to grow and learn with a family about what is best for their child/ren and to to share my ideas and experiences and utelise my creativity. I would like to be a part of a home where family and nanny come together through trust, respect and professionalism to help create an environment that is nurturing and inspiring. A space for the child/ren to learn through play, positive relationships, empathy, independence and esteem. In my current role as a lead educator in long day care setting I provide safe care and learning environments with a team of educators for 50 0-2 year olds daily. I do through respecting individual children’s experiences, social constructs and traditions. I am able to identify, present and extend learning experiences and engage with children in relevant, interesting and worthy ways. I practice this by ensuring I communicate effectively with the children’s families and my fellow staff and document accordingly. I hope to bring this same style of mutual respect and professionalism into a family home. I understand the importance of privacy of information and always conduct myself in a trustworthy manner. I have a multitude of sleep and settling tricks up my sleeve and am an avid supporter of baby led weaning. I love to venture out and about so the little ones can see and smell the big world around them and feel it beneath their little toes. I love to encourage but to also give children enough space to investigate and explore at their own pace. Extending on their interests is a wonderful way to sustain their passion and create a life long love of learning. My communication style is positive and based on respect and empathy. I have high level written and verbal applications and will utilise these to document the child/ren's milestones and experiences through learning stories and photos collaborated into portfolios. This allows not only parents but also extended family and friends to be involved in a child's journey. Portfolios are big books of memories and love and can be cherished for a lifetime! I am very receptive to and welcoming of feedback and am committed to increasing my knowledge through regularly sourcing books, online articles and seminars to assist me with new ideas and concepts relative to the early learning years. I keep myself up to date with sector changes via applicable government websites and forums. Professional development is extremely important to me. I contribute to building rapport with any team I am a part of through positive communication styles surrounding successes and achievements but also surrounding improvement and change. A family is a little team of the most important kind. I believe it is imperative to uphold healthy communication to foster an ever evolving provision of high quality care and education for the child/ren. A good sense of humour goes a long way too! My commitment to open and gentle communication is of course used with extended family, friends, outside communities such as schools, clubs, places of worship and health care services. I am also excited about the increasingly recognised importance of sustainability practices within early childhood years and believe that nature and its elements of growth and time are in themselves wonderful educators. I hope to ascertain a position with a family that promotes this. I love to recycle and reuse and grow as much as practicable. I am consistently inspired by a child's ability to inquire and inspire and I love the truly emergent and ever evolving wheel of investigation and learning that comes from children of all ages. I am excited to have the possibility to collaborate with a family to create a safe, loving and rich learning environment for their child/ren. Thank you for taking the time to read my application and I look forward to your response.

    I moved to Brisbane from the UK in April 2016 and haven't looked back. I am currently working full-time Monday to Friday but am looking to plump out my week with evening and/or weekend work in childcare. I have years of experience looking after children in and out of family, as well as paid work and would love to hear from you .

I am very reliable and responsible person, available every day at all times. Native Spanish speaker and fluent English speaker. I would love to be part of your family and to help you in every way.

  • Lucy W - 24 year old Female   Last logged on 20-Mar-2018
    Hi! I'm a friendly Brisbane local with experience babysitting children. I am looking to go back into studying this year and wanted to move back into work. I love working with children and have held several babysitting and child tutoring roles in the past. I love getting outdoors and have a silly streak that is perfect for play time. I am also great at helping kids feel motivated to complete their schoolwork. I have more experience with children over the age of 3 but with a bit of nappy-changing/feeding guidance from the parents, would be happy to work with newborns and babies too. I am looking for part-time baby-sitter or nanny work at the moment (not Au Pair) but am pretty open to what days I am available throughout the week. I have a manual licence and have my own car, and am currently renewing my blue card for this position. I completed a first aid and CPR course a few years ago and will be looking to update this as soon as I can. I'd love to chat further at your convenience!

  • Michele R - 56 year old Female   Last logged on 19-Mar-2018
    Presently I am a Nanny for two lovely children from Mondays-Wednesdays which I intend to keep doing for the next few years for as long as they need me. I would also like to do more child care in the evenings whether it be 'on call' or permanent. I am married with two children ages 19 and 24 who both are studying and have performing careers. I have been living in New Farm for 7 years. My children are virtually independent now and I have a lot of time to myself. I do crafts and run High Tea parties in our house for which I get bookings for throughout the year. It is not a huge business as I only wish to keep it going as a hobby and to meet people. I really love this. I also convene a music competition for 4MBS Classic FM103.7 competition for young musicians to compete and be selected to compete in a national final with a prize of $10,000.00. I also convened the Brisbane Eisteddfod for 10 years which I built it up from 400 competitors each year to 1,000 competitors each year. I have a blue card for the purpose of convening and communicating with young people. Before I had children I was a legal secretary for 12 years. The reason I would like to apply to be a nanny is because I am longing to be a grandmother but I can't see that happening for another 5-10 years, so I would love to be doting and caring for other children. It was important to me that I was an 'at home mother' whilst my children were growing up because I had lost a baby at six month's pregnancy and felt the loss so strongly that I was possibly overprotective. As it turned out, my son did homeschooling because he needed the time for practice. He is now a concert pianist performing nationally and internationally. My daughter preferred to do normal schooling. I have encouraged both my children in all areas of extra curricular activities to find their interest which they both have done. I would share this caring and encouragement with any children I would be looking after. I feel I would be a good nanny as, apart of the regular duties, I would play games with them, take them for walks down to the park, introduce music, singing and dancing through interaction with musical instruments and dance/song videos. Essentially, I would put my heart into my job.

  • Emma M - 45 year old Female   Last logged on 19-Mar-2018
    I am a professional public servant, available for Friday and Saturday evening babysitting. Apart from babysitting very regularly when I was younger, I have helped raise 3 stepkids over the last 15 years from age 3 (the eldest of which is now 21) and have sat for my young nephews and friends. I am very even-tempered and calm, trustworthy and friendly.

  • Jordan M - 20 year old Female   Last logged on 19-Mar-2018
    I am currently studying at the University of Queensland to become a teacher (Bachelor of Education/Arts majoring in Criminology and Modern/Ancient History). I love children and am very good with them. I have only had one baby siting job but was asked back multiple times. Whilst I don't have much experience, I have also taught children English in Tanzania and have volunteered across the world with different programs. I have a current first aid certificate (with CPR and defibrillation). I am looking for part time work, baby sitting or nanny work. I am willing to do housework or any errands that need doing as well. I can work Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays or Sundays any time during the day, or can work any night. My hobbies include reading and watching movies, and learning. In my spare time, I am either partaking in one of these hobbies, or am studying or at the gym. I have a fun and bubbly personality and am a very hard worker.

    Dear Parents, As a mother of two boys and a qualified counsellor I would like to express my interest to work with your family as a babysitter/nanny.

  • Philipp L - 26 year old Male   Last logged on 14-Mar-2018
    I am a young energetic man who loves children and I am a child myself when Im around kids. However, I have a good sense for any kind of danger and I do my best to prevent it. I am a family person and I love to be around people and I love kids for their open mind and honesty about everything. Short fun story: I was the first and only person that was allowed to go out for a walk with my mums-best friends-daughter (Just 1 year old) and everything turned out to be fine. I am really good with kids around any age and as far as they say they liked me for playing soccer, games or whatever it is all day. I know how hard and exhausting it can be, but I think I managed it very well for now. I am a very reliable and friendly person that loves to help other people out wherever and whenever I can. I have a clean police record (from Germany) I underwent several first aid courses (Germany as well)

  • Helene R - 27 year old Female   Last logged on 28-Feb-2018
    Hello, Here is a quick sum up of my experiences so you can have an idea of my background. I've have loads of experience with children as I did a lot of baby-sittings during my studies (from new born to 6-8 years old). I've also worked with children (from Kindie) during my internship for being a speech therapist. When I arrived in Australia I got a chance to be an aupair with a wonderful family of 4, in Brisbane. Then I got several others families in Melbourne (where I lived for 6 months) and then Brisbane when I came back for my studies. All references can be provided if needed. I love doing all kind of activities such as crafts, boarding games but also outdoor activities. I'm very cheerful and always conscious of the happiness of children. Looking forward to hear from you.

  • Dani L - 34 year old Female   Last logged on 30-Dec-2017
    There are many reasons why I love being a babysitter, but the most important one is I love children. Many people probably find it hard and exhausting to look after them but I enjoy it because I am caring and patient, and I love their smiles. I am a happy, energetic and healthy woman. Previously I have taken care of a 10 year old boy on a casual basis who is my friend's grandson and being an active kid he loved spending time with me because I even play catching balls with him. If you wish, my friend will provide a reference for me. I can cook different kinds of food, especially Vietnamese cuisines. I am sure if you leave your kids with me they will be very happy and well taken care of. I study Graphic Design full time next year, so I can always work part-time hours and also spend the night over if you need. I am not demanding high wages, but just reasonable pay to do something I love. Thanks.

  • Janine B - 29 year old Female   Last logged on 27-Dec-2017
    Dear Families, hopefully, I could convince you to make me a part of your family. Entrusting me with your greatest treasure would be a grand honor for me. I can assure you that you won´t be disappointed. I am looking for a part time, live-out position in the new farm area. Currently I am working 1 day per week for a wonderful family and their 1 year old boy in New Farm. I finished my Bachelor studies in July 2012. I studied education science and psychology at the University of Hamburg. I also have my Diploma in childcare. I was already working as an Au-Pair in Brisbane in 2013 where I took care of three kids, aged two, four and ten. I have got my driving license since 2006 and have lots of experience in driving on the left side and driving an automatic car! :) I have an Australian driver’s license. I have been working with children since I was 16 years old. I have great experience in babysitting in different families with babies, small children and teenagers and I find it very interesting and exciting to work with children at different ages because every child has their own needs. So you have to treat every child differently to experience and to know their wishes. I did several internships in nursery, kindergarten, childcare and in preschool where I have learned more about the behavior of children and how to deal with many different situations. I have a lot of fun spending time and playing with children. This is also one of the most important reasons why I decided to study education science and Psychology. After working as an Au-Pair, I was working with children with learning disabilities and social problems as well as in an after school childcare for children from ages 5 – 11, this involved helping them with their school homework and learning activities. I was working in a childcare center in Brisbane from December 2014 to July 2015. Here I was working as a floating Assistant and as an Assistant in the Nursery. I am still working in several childcare centres as a casual Group Leader in Brisbane 3 days a week. In my free time I like to go shopping or spend the day at the beach. I also like reading, traveling, cooking, going to the cinema, meeting friends and, of course, looking after children. I am very friendly, helpful, self-motivated and always polite. In addition, I am reliable, warm-hearted and have a lot of experience with children, I know that they like me and I think that I understand the children’s needs and we can have a lot of fun together. P.S. I hold a blue card and a First Aid Certificate from Australia.

  • Mia H - 20 year old Female   Last logged on 24-Dec-2017
    I am young and energetic so I will be able to keep up with the kids. I enjoy creating fun ideas to keep them stimulated( this comes from my background in coaching young athletes). I consider myself trustworthy and use common sense. I am on the hunt for a job so if I land a job working with kids it won't feel like work.
