Sharon's Description

Hi, I have cared for a number of children aged from 6 mths - 13+ years old, for families both in the UK and in Australia (Wollongong). I have worked as a Child Care Assistant for pre-schools and long day centres in Wollongong caring for babies and toddlers. I have home cared my own 2 older children (now almost 20 and 18). I have also looked after children (babies to primary school age / Yr 8) for working parents i.e. before and after school hours, sometimes to evenings. I am currently available p/t, am very experienced, look much younger than my advertised age (as described by one of the children I cared for) and have my own vehicle (which comes with a child car seat).
I am registered Childcare Provider with the Dept. of Human Services (previously Family Assistance Office) under Care Provider No. 281 467 746K. I have a current Child First Aid Certificate from St John Ambulance and a WWCC (Working with Children Check) No.: 0319371E. I have a current NSW Class C (Car) Drivers Licence.
REFERENCE AND QUOTE:
....Sharon was always well planned, with stimulating activities, games and active play, balanced well with quieter times for reading, playing and crafts. She used encouragement to instil learning and development. It was evident that my children were both learning and having fun when they were with Sharon and they often talked about their activities that had done in her care. Sharon would also send me txts and photos of the children during these activities which demonstrated how sensitive she was in her approach.I also appreciated the way Sharon made each of my children feel special and showed that she had each child's needs as an individual, in mind. Sharon has been very reliable, honest and thorough in her preparation and care of my 2 children. She is very conscientious with all aspects of hygiene/safety and was always interested in my children's progress at school. Her lively intelligence is a definite advantage and increased my confidence that I was leaving my children, in the care of someone who would provide the best possible care and stimulation for my children, whilst I was at work. Sharon has a gift for creating a happy, secure and nurturing environment with a stimulating daily routine for children and I would highly recommend her for any Nanny or Childcare roles. (part of written reference from Emma A., Mother of O. aged 8 & O. aged 6, 13/10/2017)

You are the most trustworthy person I have ever come across. We have found gold with you.
It was lovely having you here. (Child's name) was so very happy and I can't believe the toy room is neat for once! Thank you. You are a beautiful person and the kids adore you.
I am so lucky they love you so much and are happy to stay with you in the mornings XX - (Txt received 17/2/2016 from Parent, Emma A. - above parent)

In relation to caring for children, I am happy to care for babies and/or children, to help parents on a part time basis with casual babysitting on Fri or Sat. evenings. If needed, I am free most school holidays, to care for children i.e. holiday day care. Please contact me, if interested. Thank you.
