I am a responsible, reliable, caring and nurturing woman. I am also very creative, happy and playful with a positive outlook on life. I find it easy to adapt to all ages of children and fit in with different family dynamics, routines and structure. My number one priority is caring for the children, ensuring their safety and well being is guaranteed at all times.
Although I have no formal 'on paper' qualifications, I am a strong believer that learning from hands on experience is quite often more valuable, and I definitely think this applies to the nanny role. I always endeavour to make my time spent with the children fun, creative and educational. I believe that a good routine is important, however some flexibility is usually required. My usual day would include at least one outing - to the park,beach, library, toy library, botanical gardens or play centre. Then activities around home like crafts, cooking, dancing, singing, puzzles... just about anything age appropriate to keep them stimulated and happy!
Cooking & preparing healthy, nutritious tasty meals has become a key part in many of my previous roles. I am passionate about cooking, as well as being health conscious so quite often I find this becomes a major component. Freezable meals are a specialty - I've found parents appreciate being able to go to the freezer and pull out a home cooked meal both for the children, and for themselves!
Feeding, changing nappies, bathing, laundry, dishes, making beds, general tidying, clearing toys etc is all part of the package. I aim to be the nanny the children are always comfortable with and look forward to seeing, while you have the peace of mind to do what you need to do without being worried about them!
My current position is with a family of four children, initially the role was full time, however, due to changes in their personal situation, they are not needing a full time nanny anymore. I am generally flexible with hours and days, if you are looking for a casual babysitter, however my preference is to have some kind of routine week to week.
I have a police check and wonderful references available upon request. I have my own reliable car and have had my full drivers license for over 13 years.
