54 year old female babysitter and nanny
My name is Christine and I am a mother of three grown children and grandmother to three little ones.
I love kids as theyíve brought so much joy to my life and Iíve been lucky to have worked with children for more than 25 years. During this time Iíve had extensive experience with kids aged 0-15 years old.
I have formal childcare qualifications from TAFE as well as a lifeís worth of personal hands-on experience from raising my own three children as well professional experience having been a primary school teacherís aide for 15 years.
In addition to my love of and experience in tending to children, I also have a particular interest and extensive knowledge of childhood development.
With children who are in my care when Iím nannying, I have found great success in engaging the kids in conversation and tailoring activities to suit them Ė this can be anything from riding their bikes, to playing on the swings, to cooking and crafting. My goal is always to make sure our time together is both special and beneficial. Having 25+ years experience in the field of Early Childhood I see myself as a professional career nanny and not as a fly by night carer wanting easy cash. I understand the challenges involved in raising children (having been a Ďmumí to many!) including stages of weaning children onto solid foods, toilet training, discipline, separation anxiety and school readiness and right up to High School. I feel this will benefit any family whom which decides to appoint me as their nanny. I take my role as nanny/educator seriously and prefer to undertake positions that will enable me to establish a relationship with a family for the long term benefit of all involved.
I am a responsible individual, hard working and reliable willing to undertake whatever tasks necessary to maintain a harmonious balance with the family home.
I also like to spend time with you as parents in those early stages so that I can learn whatís important to you during the time that I have with your children Ė Iím happy to maintain any established routines and work within the parameters you set.
Of course I have a Blue Card and first aid and can offer glowing references from the families for whom Iíve worked.
