Hello families! I am Brooke, an early childhood educator working in Boyne Island, Central Queensland. I grew up on the Sunshine Coast but moved to the Gladstone region 3 years ago. I have just relocated back to the Sunshine Coast/Brisbane area due to family.
I absolutely LOVE children of all ages, I find everything about them extremely precious and beautiful. I learn from them just as much as they learn from me.
I believe I was put on this earth to work with and help children grow and learn.
I enjoy having a positive impact on their lives, as they do on mine.
I strongly believe in children learning through play. I have been working in a centre based around Reggio philosophies; children are capable little human beings that need agency, people really underestimate them!
Although I seem quite young, I am extremely confident and have worked with many children from infants, toddlers, and ages above. I have been working as a kindergarten teacher for 18 months, my main role was support educator for children on the autism spectrum. I am caring, loving, motherly, kind and gentle but I am tough and disciplined when I need to be, I work under pressure well.
I am patient and tolerant, and I am great at problem solving. I get down on children’s levels, I aim to keep them feeling as comfortable and safe as possible, at all times.
I love to sing and play games (perfect for keeping the kids busy!).
I was a live in Nanny and became the local babysitter in London in 2010 (4 year old & 10 month old), it was a fantastic experience, and I enjoyed all of the gorgeous little British accents! I met a lot of great families and a lot of beautiful children. I learnt a lot about my love and passion for children and where it can take me.
I have been nannying since age 18 and babysitting children of various ages since I was 14. I am comfortable with all ages from bubbies to teens.
I am more than happy to do house work if need be, I enjoy cleaning and keeping busy and the less cleaning/household choirs you have to do in your spare time, the more time you have to spend with your children! I love making your family/home life as easy as possible.
I have my Blue Card and am soon to renew my First Aid Certificate, I will be undertaking the asthma and anaphylaxis certificate.
I am happy to register as a Family Assistance Carer if needed.
Please note: I am seeking LIVE-OUT care as I live with my beautiful partner and 5 pets! (2 dogs, 2 guinea pigs and a bearded dragon)
I am willing to negotiate/discuss pay according to number of children, tasks etc
Thanks for reading and I look forward to hearing from you! :)
