|Last Logged in 9 weeks ago|
My name is Samantha Ligertwood and I have been within the childcare industry for 16 years now, working with all ages up to 13 years, youngest being 3 months.
I am currently looking for a full-time position in nannying. Unfortunately my current position is finishing up at the end of this year due to reduced hours and family lifestyle changes. My current boss is happy to speak on my behalf and is also helping me to find another position to move on to.
My current job is looking after two boys one is 2 years and the other is almost 5. The older one will be going to school next year and the younger one to daycare. I have been with this family since the little one was 3months old. (2.5 years.)
My previous position was a travel and family PA position where I did the shopping, cooking and taking care of two little children's needs. I was with the family for almost 2yrs. One goes to school now and the other is in daycare a few days a week.
I have extensive experience within many areas that have always involved children which I can talk about further later. Here is a brief description of my experience.
Prior to this position I was privileged to work in a mother support/nanny professional situation where I worked on a contract basis for 4.5 years through one professional nanny agency by the name Sydney In Home Care. (Then now Childcare Services of NSW)
I had the privilege of being able to help out with other agencies such as DOCS and Mental Health to provide high quility care within the homes of parents that needed some extra help. All childcare related.
I have also worked with children with a disability, autism, Cerebral Paulsey.
Prior to that I have completed my certificate in Children Services and worked in Childcare Centres for 7 years. Whilst in that environment I was Coordinator for all ages and was able to work my way up to be temporary Authorised Supervisor. I have completed my Senior First Aid Certificate.
My strengths are creating organisation within a home environment and understanding childcare development. I am able to help with a structured routine for the children and family with ease. I also love seeing children develop into the little adults that they are.
I also have my own car which has been a great help with certain jobs that require me to have one.
In my spare time, I love to read, paint, playing my guitar and meeting up with friends.
*I am looking for casual babysitting also.
