Sharon's Description

Hi, I have cared for a number of children aged from 6 mths to 15 years old, for families both in the UK and in Australia (Wollongong). I have also 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 children (now adults) and looked after children (babies to Yr 10) for working parents i.e. before, during and after school hours, sometimes to evenings including occasional weekends and school holidays. I am a registered Childcare Provider with Human Services, have a WWCC (Working With Children Check) and a current Statement of Attainment with St John Ambulance - Provide an Emergency First Aid Response in an Education & Care Setting, Provide CPR, Provide Basic Emergency Life Support, Provide First Aid, Course in Emergency Management of Asthma, Course in First Aid in Anaphylaxis and Course in AED (Automated External Defibrillation).
For the past 15 years, I have worked as a Nanny (and occasional Babysitter) for local families e.g. I cared for a 4 year old boy and his toddler sister on behalf of both working parents and also cared for other primary and high school aged children. From March 2014, I was recruited by a local family via "Find a Babysitter" to be their p/t Nanny, until June, 2017, caring for their 2 boys from the ages of 11 and 8 (until they turned 13 and 11). I helped this family with frequently changeable shifts and hours with the odd school holiday care and occasional weekend babysitting. I have helped care for a) 2 primary aged children for law enforcement parents (mornings in school term only) and b) 2 high school boys (before and after school) whose parents were both doctors, working varied changeable shifts. I am currently working as a part time Nanny caring for a 13 year old girl and her 8 year old brother (before and after school including some school holidays), assisting their single parent father who runs his own business. Present main tasks include preparing breakfasts, school lunches, afternoon tea and family dinners; laundry; cleaning kitchen area; sweeping; transportation to and from school and to after-school activities (own vehicle); organising groceries list and carrying out food/ clothes shopping; helping with school readers, homework and assignments; mending clothes (by hand and sewing machine) and general pet care.
I am a caring and nurturing person with a genuine warmth who interacts well with parents, grandparents, teachers and children (of all ages). I am very flexible, hard-working, organised and devoted, have a good sense of humour and look and act much younger than my advertised age (as mentioned by one of the boys I used to care for). I am happy to provide a written reference from a previous parent and hope to hear from you regarding your Nanny &/or Babysitter needs.
