Dana's Description

Definite Availability:
Mon-Fri 10am-2pm (suit Leichhardt/Five Dock Area)
All else negotiable.

I have a BA in Early Childhood Studies from University College Cork. I have been working with children since the age of 13.

Currently on mat leave with my first child (born 25th Feb 2016) and hoping to look after a playmate for her.

Most recent (15 months): Family with 3 children- aged 6, 4 and 1, 4 days per week.

Previous Australian Experience:
Nanny cover- two boys aged 3 and 8 months, 7 days per week for 4 weeks.
Temp nanny- two boys aged 4 years and 14 months, 5 days per week/10 hours per day.
Nanny- twins aged two, boy and girl, and a newborn boy. Care ended when baby was found to be ill, and a state-service was offered.
Nanny- two boys, aged 2.5 yrs and 1 yr- Mon, Thurs and Fri until 5pm, but the mother was been made redundant so they no longer required a nanny.
Part-time Nanny (4 months)- two boys, aged 3 and 1, and have returned to LA.

My previous position to that (of 2 years) was with a lovely family of four children- aged 9, 8, 3, and newborn. One child (8yr old) was a boy with special needs ( Aspergers, ADHD, ODD, Dyspraxia and speech and language difficulties) who needed some extra help. I started with this family when there was only 3 children and stayed throughout the fourth pregnancy until the child was 8 months. I left to travel here, to Sydney.

I have completed over 600 hours of childcare placement in a professional environment- 300 in a daycare centre for ages 0-12 and 300 in a special needs primary school, ages 3-6.

I love children and have always wanted to work in this area. I have a CV ready to show you, and references.

I live in Strathfield South with my husband and, occasionally, his two children- girl 9 and boy 7.

Leanne S. rated Dana 5 / 5    [Comment: Professional and thorough, yet friendly and open. Dana was a wonderful addition to our family for 6 months. Unfortunately, I was made redundant and we could no longer afford to keep Dana, even though she offered to have her salary reduced. Dana even work]
